The premier standard for mission-critical video wall controllers

The Alpha FX Core is a multi-4K, IP-enabled a video wall controller that delivers extraordinary performance in both networked and traditional video wall environments. Supporting IP streaming as well as physical inputs and outputs, the Core enables users to display and share video wall content across their network in real-time.

The Alpha FX Core is designed on a Windows 10 PC-based architecture and leverages CineMassive’s FX Graphics Engine to deliver accelerated graphics, 3D rendering, and massive resolutions. Controlled with user-friendly CineNet software, the Core’s processing power, flexibility, and 24/7 reliability make it an ideal solution for a range of applications – including medium to large control rooms, data visualization centers, and more.

Controller Features

Multi-4K Capture & Display

The Alpha FX Core is fully 4K-capable, supporting up to 16 4K inputs and outputs or up to 16 4K IP streams.

High-Density Inputs & Outputs

With up to 64 HD (or 16 4K) inputs and outputs in a single, 4U chassis, the Core allows you to display dozens of content sources on your video wall simultaneously. Additional inputs are available with expansion options.

Native IP Encoding & Decoding

The Alpha FX Core can encode and decode up to 64 simultaneous video streams, so users can not only access and display content from anywhere on their network – they can also encode and share their video wall to remote colleagues and display systems. Low-latency H.264 encoding and decoding ensures IP streams look as seamless as local input sources.

Displays Virtually Any Content

The Core can support virtually any signal format – digital or analog, physical or IP – and accepts content from nearly any device, including PCs, tablets, cameras, cable boxes, and more.

Unlimited Content Source Duplication

The Core can duplicate a content source an unlimited number of times on the video wall without any loss of frame rate, so you can isolate and zoom into specific regions of content without losing sight of the big picture.

Multi-Video Wall Control

The Core can drive multiple video walls simultaneously, including systems built with different display types (LCD, LED, projection, etc.) and aspect ratios. Different video walls can be controlled as a single display canvas or managed separately.


Software Features

Like all Alpha FX controllers, the Alpha FX Core comes preloaded with CineNet video wall software.
