SignStix launches enhanced video-slicing and cross-zone synchronization features for easy, affordable UHD video walls

Cloud-based digital signage platform SignStix® has announced the release of its enhanced video-slicing and cross-zone synchronization features for affordable ultra-high-definition (UHD) video walls.

As part of its new SignStix® Python (Version 2.7) feature release, SignStix® now offers enhanced pre-processed video slicing for video walls, where high-resolution videos are automatically chopped-up into a number of separate ‘slices’, one for each screen. This significantly improves screen resolution and image quality, as each SignStix® device does not need to download the same large video file. As a result, each device only downloads the video content it really needs, reducing network bandwidth significantly. The new release also ensures that when new content is deployed to a video wall, all screens automatically update to new content at the same time, providing maximum impact.

SignStix® video-slicing capability, coupled with its compact 4K Player, makes ultra-high-definition video walls a much more viable option for organisations looking to invest in large-scale projects and build video walls of virtually any size.

For added flexibility, the cloud-based CMS also gives organisations the ability to synchronise content across different video walls in multiple zones and locations, also known as ‘cross-zone synchronization.’
