Verotec delivers custom 19 inch rack for Juggler pixel systems
Fully configured and tested hardware for 7th Sense’s Juggler pixel processing system was designed and delivered in four weeks by Verotec. The custom rack case was used by the company to launch the new Juggler hardware-based modular pixel processing system.
The Juggler system offers unlimited I/O scalability, with DisplayPort, HDMI, SDI and Video over IP supported as both inputs and outputs. There is also seamless full high-bit depth pixel-based colour processing, warp and blend with a bandwidth of 14Gbytes per second. The pixel processing system transfers server PCI/PCIe card processing elements into a modular hardware base, offloading media server processing bandwidth, explains Verotec. It genlocks all sources to same-frame accuracy with instant system failure fall-back across all connected devices via frame-data monitoring, reducing latency to a minimum.
Verotec provided a custom size, thermally managed 1U 500mm deep, 19 inch rack mounting chassis comprising formed steel base and top with extruded front and rear panels.
After supplying production quantities of the basic hardware throughout 2019 to 7th Sense, the supply, assembly, wiring and test of the complete electro-mechanical sub-system has now been subcontracted to Verotec.
Juggler is based on a FPGA motherboard, populated with mezzanine FMC cards that map the individual inputs to outputs. The units make use of Verotec’s extensive in-house capabilities, with a machined and printed extruded rear panel and individual I/O panels with connectors and wiring, a power supply, thermal management, all functionally tested before despatch.
Verotec supplies electronic enclosure products to a diverse market place. It designs, manufactures and integrates a comprehensive range of standard products including 19 inch racks, instrument cases, fan trays, backplanes, power supplies and bus-based systems.
The company offers a full engineering and manufacturing service to assist customers in modifying standard products or developing custom versions, as well as for completely new products to suit a specific requirement. The company’s supports this with expertise in thermal management, EMC, environmental and regulatory standards.
It develops open-architecture products for bus-based market applications and offers fully integrated COTS and custom chassis in standard platforms such as VME64x, OpenVPX and CompactPCI.
