Video processing equipment designer and manufacturer tvONE announced it will exhibit "The Real-Time Video Windmill," a rotating array of digital signage displays, to showcase the real-time video manipulation of its CORIOmaster mini media player at next month's ISE 2014 in Amsterdam.
The windmill features a rotating array of four 46-inch flat panel displays showing video that maintains a stable horizon even as the displays rotate 360 degrees in real-time, the company said. Video sources will include live showroom floor video as well as streaming media. To showcase its full potential, the CORIOmaster mini will alternate between displaying a stable horizon while displays rotate, rotating video in sync with the displays, or counter-rotating video in the opposite direction of the rotating displays, according to the announcement.
The CORIOmaster mini enables a range of video manipulation tasks to be performed simultaneously, including real-time 360-degree video rotations and multiprojector edge blending. The company said it is the industry's first videowall processor to fit up to 12 high-density universal DVI or 10 HDBaseT and two high-density universal DVI ports in a compact frame, controlling full-scale three-by-three videowalls without a rack of discrete video components.
"Our vision in creating the Video Windmill was to set users' minds free to imagine," tvONE President Steven Mattingly said in the announcement. "Even highly challenging, processor-intensive actions like rotating high-resolution video smoothly around an axis are easy within the compass of this very small but very powerful unit. We'd like to encourage our customers to dream big and push CORIOmaster to its absolute limit. Like its big brother, the mini achieves stunning performance through the patented tvONE Parallel Processing Architecture."
