The Datapath x4 is a stand alone display wall controller that accepts a standard single or dual-link DVI input and can flexibly display this across four output monitors.
Each output can be driven as DVI or analog RGB, and can represent an arbitrary crop region of the original input image. The output resolution and frame rate does not need to be related to that of the input as the Datapath x4 will optionally upscale and frame-rate convert each cropped region independently. However, if the Datapath x4 detects that frame rates identically match it will automatically frame-lock all outputs and if possible, frame-lock these to the input signal. Additionally, each output can be independently mirrored or rotated through 90°, 180° or 270° to support creative mixes of landscape and portrait monitors.
The Datapath x4 is also ideal for use with edge blending projectors, supporting image overlapping.

Advancements in digital signage allow much greater freedom in creating and deploying any scale signage projects. At the forefront of this is the Datapath Fx4, a multi-faceted stand alone display controller. The Fx4 supports a choice of inputs, high bandwidth loop-through as well as 4 genlocked outputs in either DisplayPort or HDMI.
The Fx4 features a DisplayPort1.2 main input alongside two HDMI1.4 inputs offering either 4k 4096x2160p at 60fps or UHD 2160p at 30fps respectively. The intuitive user interface allows users to determine which input is used.
Each output monitor can take its input from any region of the input image as all of the required cropping, scaling, rotation and frame-rate conversion is handled
by the Fx4 hardware. These regions can overlap to allow any output to replicate another or can be configured to support any creative splice of the source material. This allows the support of many non-rectangular screen arrangements, as well as any mix of monitor orientations allowing users to create an almost unlimited multi-monitor canvas.
The Fx4 also allows users to pre-load an image for immediate display in those cases when the media source or cables malfunction and no signal is being received.
The Datapath Fx4 has dual ethernet ports to allow users to add the device to their networks. 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.
