The Alpha FX Edge is an IP-enabled, graphics-accelerated 4K
Our most compact rack-mounted processor, the Alpha FX Edge is a powerful and cost-effective solution for smaller control rooms, briefing rooms, collaboration environments, and more. Like the larger controllers in the Alpha FX family, the Edge is designed on a Windows 10 PC architecture and leverages CineMassive’s FX Graphics Engine to deliver accelerated graphics, 3D rendering, and massive resolutions. CineNet video wall software provides simple, intuitive control over the controller, content, and video wall.
Supporting up to 4 4K inputs/outputs and up to 16 IP streams in a single 1RU chassis, the Alpha FX Edge is a compact, cost-effective solution for driving a small video wall system or arrangement of 4K monitors. Optional expansion chassis can also be added for additional inputs and outputs.
The Edge is able to encode and decode up to 16 HD or 4 4K IP streams simultaneously. With native encoding and decoding, users can not only access and display real-time video streams from anywhere on the network – they can also share local video wall content to colleagues and display systems around the world.
The Edge performs low-bitrate, low-latency encoding and decoding through H.264 video compression – so IP video appears as seamless and fluid as local content.
The Edge supports virtually any video format – digital, analog, or even IP – and accepts content from nearly any device, including workstations, laptops, tablets, cameras, cable boxes, and more.
The Edge can duplicate a content source on the video wall an unlimited number of times without any loss of frame-rate. This makes it easy to isolate and zoom into specific regions of content without losing sight of the big picture.
The Edge can drive multiple display systems simultaneously, even those built with different display technologies (LCD, LED, projection, etc.) and aspect ratios. Different display systems can be controlled as a single, continuous canvas or managed separately.
Like all Alpha FX controllers, the Alpha FX Edge comes preloaded with CineNet video wall software.
Simply drag and drop content sources onto your video wall. Content can be moved freely across the displays and placed anywhere.
Freely scale, zoom, crop, and layer content windows on the video wall in real-time.
Capture and save arrangements of content sources for instant recall.
Decode and display IP video streams from any source on your network. Video streams can be simply dragged and dropped onto your video wall.
Instantly encode and stream a content source, or even your whole video wall, to users and display systems across your network.
Enhance presentations and collaboration with whiteboarding features like text labels and drawing.
Control external devices like audio, VTC systems, and TV from the same interface you use to control your video wall. Requires purchase of Room Control package.
Use CineNet’s role-based permissions system to control team members’ access to specific content sources, displays, activities, and devices.
Display remote applications like PowerPoint or Google Earth and interact with them in real-time on your video wall.
Play videos and images directly from your Alpha FX Edge. This approach gives you instant access to the content you use the most without requiring a separate, dedicated PC.
