HELIOS LED processor platform adds SMPTE ST 2110 IP workflow

The latest version of Megapixel’s HELIOS LED processing platform, v 22.11, is the first in the industry to support the SMPTE ST 2110 standard. Up to four simultaneous inputs can be used on ultra-large LED walls beyond 8K, using stitching for traditional 2×2, super-tall 1×4, or ultra-wide 4×1 applications. A complete IP workflow offers flexible signal processing and routing without the need for dedicated signal converters, legacy video signals and cable length restrictions.

The new Megapixel Cloud service allows remote access, monitoring, operation and central maintenance of display systems from anywhere in the world.

Other new updates include:

  • Upload multiple images to HELIOS and playback still images as test patterns.
  • Tile-generated test pattern that displays the tile cabling topology regardless of current mapping, greatly simplifying manual mapping for complex screen configurations.
  • Sync different tile types when using Tile Low Latency mode.
  • Eco-friendly low-power tile mode, drawing up to 90% less power than video black on certain tiles.
  • New fiber stats report to easily view all the SFP fiber conditions across the entire system in a single view.
  • Scheduler functionality to automate functions based on time of day, including brightness, blackout, input selection, and saved configurations.
  • Additional input signal failover behavior options include blackout, still-store, or alternate input until the source returns.
  • Now display Camera Mode and GhostFrame subframe timings as shutter angles or frame fractions, ideal for those working on set.
  • Custom EDID support allows input bandwidth to be reallocated for more efficient use of the pixel canvas.
  • Pixel error detection to identify the quantity and location of pixel and driver failures in a screen.
  • Hardened security with added support to upload SSL certificates.
