Digital Canvas Processors

Digital Canvas Processors that are powerful, versatile and scalable, making them suitable for all kinds of applications.

These processors provide the foundation for large format display or visualisation systems, including classic video walls, blended projection setups and modular LED installations.

Create mosaics of content from live AV input sources, IP cameras and streams, HTML apps and dashboards, media asset playback and desktop KVM over LAN.

All product models offer similar functional capability including dynamic layout control and seamless canvas management with easy-to-use control mechanisms.

Most importantly, PanoTek products are offered with comprehensive technical expertise, commissioning assistance and post-sales support.

Product Models

DCP-1200

The DCP-1200 is a powerful yet compact processor suitable for a wide variety of applications; many customers will need look no further than this model.

This is the ideal choice for a canvas up to 32 Megapixels in size. That's enough to power up to an 8x2 or 4x4 video wall constructed with 1080p panels. (Other panel arrangements are also possible).

DCP-1600

The DCP-1600 is PanoTek's most popular 'work-horse' model.

This system offers double the canvas resolution compared with the DCP-1200 and has substantially greater input capacity.

It offers the perfect balance of capacity, scalability, performance and price.

DCP-3200

The DCP-3200 is designed for larger control room installations that require lots and lots of directly connected inputs and IP stream sources.

The internal backplane supports a large number of boards for GPU, Input, and Video Processing cards. Like all models in our range it has redundant power supply cassettes and mirrored SSDs for maximum uptime.

This system can be used to power a conventional video wall of up to 48 panels when used in conjunction with PanoTek VPH-4 Video Hubs.

DCP-4800

The DCP-4800 is our latest addition to the fleet, and is the platform of choice for ultra high resolution rendering workloads including 3D visualisation, immersive projection, digital set backdrops, massive scale game rendering, VR applications and photo-realistic simulation.

Featuring HDEC architecture, dual CPUs and massive internal I/O bandwidth, this system employs the most powerful graphics tech from the best in the business: nVidia Quadro RTX series GPUs in conjunction with Matrox IPX for live AV input capture and AVoIP direct decode/encode.

"How many GPU outputs do I need?"

Not as many as you might think!

If the downstream display devices are 1080p panels, projectors or LED sender units then one DCP output can drive up to four of them! How? By placing a PanoTek VPH-4 video hub at the far end of the link. A small, solid-state appliance with one high bandwidth input, and four HDMI outputs for a 2x2, 4x1, 1x4 in Portrait or Landscape orientation.

"What's the best way to deliver the output signals?"

Transmission issues are the most common type of problem experienced with video walls where the cable runs are greater than 10m.

A key part of a PanoTek solution is the strategy for delivering the signals cleanly and reliably to the far end.

Minimise the number of long cable runs, neutralise transmission problems and eliminate the need for any extender devices and power supplies: use our high bandwidth Fibre Optic Hybrid cables. This has a number of benefits compared with using HDBaseT extenders over Cat6.
