To further speed the adoption of AVoIP signal distribution in the pro AV marketplace, ZeeVee, Inc. is introducing the latest upgrades to its ZyPer Management Platform that provides advanced multiview, preset and grid features further enhancing the popular platform’s functionality and user experience.
Version 2.2, designed for the company’s ZyPer4K (SDVoE, uncompressed 4K, 10 Gbps) and ZyPerUHD (JPEG2000, compressed, 1 Gbps) AVoIP encoders and decoders, enables source content to be simply dragged and dropped onto video wall displays via an intuitive onscreen interface. The multi-codec control system is regularly cited by ZeeVee customers as a key differentiator in their choosing ZeeVee AVoIP products. The upgrade is available to current users free of charge.
ZeeVee, with its ZyPer4K line, was among the first to market with encoders and decoders using the Software Defined Video over Ethernet (SDVoE) platform. To date, the company has invested more than 20,000 programmer hours in software development for the platform.
“The new and enhanced features and functionalities of the ZyPer Management Platform are the result of feedback we’ve received from integrators in the field—the front line of pro AV intelligence,” said Joe Chordas, vice president, Marketing and North American Sales, ZeeVee. “The fact that we regularly update the platform to reflect the ever-changing needs of the market at no additional cost has made it a mainstay for a fast-growing number of integrators globally.”
ZeeVee is hosting a SIGNAL Session webinar, led by Chordas and Art Weeks, ZeeVee’s director of product management, on Thursday, April 22, that will provide attendees with a detailed demonstration of the latest platform upgrade. You can learn more and register for this event via this link.
What’s New Under the Hood?
The enhanced multiview capabilities enable users to more creatively present immersive visual experiences by supporting a total of 19 sources—10 more than in the platform’s previous iteration. In addition, switching between display configurations is easier than ever before. This allows for the creation of video walls of configurations of up to 81 monitors (9 x 9) without any additional equipment. The custom multiview editor is now also compatible with a wider array of video sizes.
Advanced presets can be created for any API command so configurations can be stored and then activated on-the-fly at the touch of a button. These presets can also be scheduled to display one time, or in a series, at any point up to a year in advance via an intuitive calendar interface. An unlimited number of schedules can be preset.
Enhanced independent source and display grids provide flexibility, intuitive tabs and filtering, column selection and drag and drop functionality. The grids can be exported to .csv files and stored separately or altered and imported back into the system These sophisticated, yet simple to use, additions and modifications model the configuration workflows that pro AV integrators have grown accustomed to when setting up an HDBaseT matrix. ZeeVee believes this approach will help the channel transition more rapidly to AV over IP.
