LEYARD TW SERIES LED VIDEO WALL
This line of fine pitch LED video walls is available in 1.2, 1.8 and 2.5 millimeters pitches. The series is architected to support the highest pixel density and deliver benefits unique to its “flat panel” design including a 16:9 form factor optimized for the most popular high resolution standards, ease of installation and service, and outstanding flatness and uniformity. With a slim 54-in. cabinet and the finest pixel pitches, Leyard TW Series LED video walls deliver the pixel density and form-factor to match LCD and rear projection video walls, but with a truly seamless video wall configuration of any size. Leyard TW Series displays are self-contained displays with standard HDMI inputs and looping, along with optional redundant configurations. The larger 54-in. cabinet means more of the video wall is factory-aligned, easing installation time and costs with fewer displays to align and seams to tweak at installation.

MATROX MONARCH LCS LECTURE CAPTURE APPLIANCE
This compact, full-featured, two-input lecture capture appliance is simple to integrate into educational environments, easy to use and priced at $2,495. Monarch LCS accepts video from any SDI or HDMI camera and presentation content over HDMI from computers. Inputs can be encoded independently and in sync for use with multi-stream video players, or combined prior to encoding in a variety of production layouts, for use with standard video players. It is a reliable, standalone network appliance that IT administrators can easily set up and integrate into video management systems (VMS) such as Opencast and Kaltura and learning management systems (LMS) such as Moodle. Its web interface lets users easily define profiles for live streamed and recorded lectures, mixing camera and presentation material from SDI and HDMI sources. Built-in scaling, deinterlacing, and noise reduction engines insure clean RTMP or RTSP output for local media servers or cloud-based CDNs. In recording applications, the encoders write MP4 or MOV files to network-mapped drives (eliminating the need for post-lecture file transfer) or alternatively to local USB drives or SD cards. Controllable internally or use the included API for Crestron or other third-party integration.

PESA DIGITAL CONTENT RECORDING & STORAGE SYSTEM
PESA ACES| Digital Content Recording & Storage System (DCRS2) is a full featured content management system that manages both uncompressed and compressed audio and video formats.
