The recently introduced Fx4 next-generation multi-display controller from Datapath, world-leading engineers of visual solutions, now supports 4K resolution at 60 fps on the HDMI input. Added as part of the latest firmware upgrade, this new capability makes the Fx4 perfect for applications where high frame rate is key. Digital signage applications in the retail, leisure and hospitality sectors, for example, are all set to benefit.
Datapath’s Fx4 provides four outputs from a single box, presenting a multitude of possibilities for end users. Moreover, the Fx4 can be daisy-chained to build exceptionally large video walls without any degradation in signal. With dual Ethernet port capability, only one Datapath Fx4 in the chain requires connection to the physical LAN as Ethernet loop-through is supported on the second port, meaning multiple devices can be connected.
The addition of 4K at 60 fps on the HDMI input will lend itself to many types of media players used commonly in digital signage applications, boosting quality so that video content will appear visually smoother.
The Fx4 from Datapath offers flexible connectivity via a selection of DisplayPort or HDMI inputs, supports HDCP content on all inputs and outputs, and can be programmed and controlled independently of the platform through its network interface options (Ethernet or USB).
