Hiperwall Version 6

Hiperwall is a software that powers the most cutting-edge video walls and distributed visualization systems available today.


MINIMUM HARDWARE REQUIREMENTS

The minimum hardware requirements below will allow executing Hiperwall on a defined functional level: Minimum requirements are the bare minimum necessary to have Hiperwall function. These may or may not suit the actual needs for a Hiperwall usage. Based upon setup and usage different PC system requirements may apply in order to achieve optimum performance for the given demand and purpose.

Please refer to your local trained / certified NEC Display Solutions Hiperwall Re-Seller or NEC Display Solutions sales to get support to analyse the actual requirements and design a Hiperwall system matching an individual demand based on the recommended PC system requirements.

The NEC Training Academy training is highly recommended for NEC Display Solutions and Hiperwall sales, requirements analysis, system design and installation, education of administrators and users as well as support. The NEC Display Solution Training Academy for Hiperwall is mandatory to obtain and retain the status of a certified NEC Display Solution Hiperwall Partner.

Hiperwall

Network

  • Non-blocking Gigabit Ethernet: All ports run at full wire speed with no packet loss!
  • The gigabit Ethernet switch should support the following IGMP protocols:
    • IGMP Snooping
    • IGMP Querier
    • IGMP Immediate-Leave (Fast-Leave)
  • If using multiple switches for a larger number of ports or distances, use an inter-switch (stacking) link.
  • HiperController, HiperFailSafe / KeyNode computer, HiperView computers, and computers for HiperSource streamers and IP Streams, should be on the same subnet. It is acceptable to use two (or more) NICs to connect to multiple networks if needed.
