Sized perfectly for small to medium video wall applications

The Alpha FX Nexus processors are multi-4K, IP-enabled video wall processors in a compact, 2RU package. They are ideal for use in small to medium-sized control rooms, briefing rooms, visualization environments, and other applications requiring a powerful yet compact video wall control solution.

The Nexus processors deliver an impressive range of video processing options in a small form factor. You can choose from two versions – the Nexus 33 or the Nexus 24 – depending on your system requirements. As with all processors in the Alpha FX family, these processors come loaded with CineNet software, providing an intuitive, web-based interface to manage the content on your video walls. The Nexus processors are is based on a Windows 10 PC-based architecture, leveraging CineMassive’s FX Graphics Engine to support accelerated graphics processing. It is They are designed for 24/7 operation, making them perfect for smaller mission-critical applications.

Processor Features

Multi-4K Capture & Display

The Nexus 33 can process up to 12 4K inputs/outputs and up to 48 IP streams. The Nexus 24 can process up to 16 4K inputs/outputs and up to 64 IP streams. These processors are compact, cost-effective solutions in a single 2RU chassis for driving a small-medium video wall system.

Infinite Content Source Duplication

The Nexus processors 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.

Native IP Encoding & Decoding

The Nexus 33 can encode and decode up to 48 HD or 12 4K IP streams simultaneously. The Nexus 24 can encode and decode up to 64 HD or 16 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.

Multi-Video Wall Control

The Nexus can drive multiple video walls simultaneously, even those built with different display technologies (LCD, LED, projection, etc.) and/or aspect ratios. Multiple video walls can be controlled as a single, continuous canvas or divided into regions that are managed separately.

Displays Virtually Any Content

The Nexus processors can support 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.

High-Resolution, Low-Latency Streaming

The Nexus processors can perform low-bitrate, low-latency encoding and decoding through H.264 video compression – so IP video appears as seamless and fluid as local content.


Software Features

Whiteboarding

Like all Alpha FX processors, the Alpha FX Nexus comes preloaded with CineNet™ video wall management software. Powerful yet intuitive, CineNet’s browser-based interface gives you the ultimate control over your video wall system and surrounding environment.

  • Easy drag & drop content placement
  • Real-time collaboration tools like Whiteboarding
  • On-screen control of external devices such as video teleconferencing systems
  • Secure log-in and user-based permissions
