Datapath is already shipping its Wall Designer software for the MacOS platform. The software has been completely recreated for the MacOS platform taking advantage of Apple’s Mac 64-bit architecture and multi-core processing. The software is available as a free download for Datapath’s customers.
Wall Designer works to provide what the company says is an easy and intuitive visual interface for the Fx4, Fx4-SDI and Hx4 multi-screen display wall controllers offering an advanced video wall design and Implementation suite. It enables users to place projects across a virtual canvas. Adjusting the input resolution ensures the project matches the content, with Wall Designer automatically arranging the capture regions or adjusting each region to suit.
Wall Designer takes the stress out of configuring hardware for a project by automatically adding one of Datapath’s award winning range of multi-display controllers, projects and assigning each output to a monitor. Re-drawing screen assignments to suit the project's needs and help installation builds. Connecting a number of wall controllers to your Mac and Wall Designer will allow users to assign the wall controller to monitor and program them. Full monitor EDID management is available for timing adjustments.
One of the benefits of the Wall Designer software is the information it provides to enable easy configuration. Information such as screen dimensions — in pixels and millimetres, bezel sizes and refresh rates are all included. The ability to choose from a list of previously used monitors as well as adding other monitors and even bespoke RGB LED configurations has created software which makes display wall configuration and implementation a joy, rather than a chore.
A unique feature of Wall Designer is its user-driven monitor database. The range of monitors in the application’s database has grown to cover an enormous and constantly growing number of unique devices, as users have added their own monitors and submitted these back to Datapath for inclusion.
Wall Designer for the MacOS is available now as a free download from the Datapath website for Apple desktops and laptop computers running MacOS version 10.12, High Sierra and above. Further details can be found here.
