Orad Brings Real-Time Backdrop Integration to Barco Video Walls

Barco and Orad Hi-Tec Systems are now providing real-time backdrop interaction on high-resolution video wall surfaces. Both companies have collaborated to integrate Barco’s video wall systems and touch screen technology with Orad’s new PowerWall interactive video wall controller and rendering software.

Barco’s OV-D2 video walls have been integrated with Orad’s new PowerWall solution. The PowerWall turnkey system is based on the HDVG platform that provides a 4k resolution output from a single box. PowerWall outputs four separate 1080i SDI signals that can be combined in the video wall environment to give a total resolution of 3840×2160 pixels or 7680×1080 pixels. The HD outputs are converted into DVI and can be displayed on a 2×2 high-resolution video wall. On Barco’s OV-D2 video wall systems, each HD output can be further looped through and scaled across multiple projectors. This means that the Orad’s PowerWall can present a framelocked image across a 16-cube OV-D2 video wall.

Barco’s OV-D2 video wall series features the unique Sense6 sensor technology that ensures uniform colors and brightness over time and across the entire screen. The video wall’s high-resolution rear-projection modules support 3200 K color temperature to match with the studio lighting.

Barco’s OVTS-50 Display Wall Touch System has also been combined with Orad’s PowerWall interactive module. The combination of both products will allow presenters to better interact with high-resolution backdrop content, for example, by triggering animations.
