The Novastar 660 4-way rack is designed to give everything required (excluding a scaled image) to drive an LED video wall. It includes mains distribution, signal matrix, TPS receivers, LED processors and more. The rack is mixture of stock and bespoke components. It is intended to be used with LED video walls that are wired with main and backup signal cabling. In a redundent set-up the rack will comfortably drive 160 panels.
The mains distribution section of the rack includes a UPS for the internal electronics and 12 individual circuits for the LED panels. These are accessed on socapex connectors for quick and tidy cabling and one of the socapex connectors is also paired with 6 x local PowerCON TRUE1 connectors for added flexibility. The inclusion of a Lightware MMX 6×2 HT220 signal matrix adds significant flexibility and reliability into the mix. It features dual TPS inputs and dual TPS outputs which are particularly useful when cabling distant L/R screens. The local HDMI inputs and matrix that this unit features helps to significantly reduce unplugging when setting up, hot swapping and problem solving.
The control rack includes 4x NovaStar MCTRL660 independent video controllers. The DVI input supports resolution up to 1920×1200@60Hz, whilst the HDMI input can support up to 1920×1200@60Hz. It has 4x RJ45 outputs with a maximum loading capacity of 650,000 pixels.
