Video Display and Audio Control

SeQent’s VideoSERVER (VS) product family provides a video display and audio control solution that allows for the control and customization of any fixed or mobile device. VideoSERVER displays real-time information and enables the ability to control and customize any display surface with text, graphics, and sounds while creating a common interface across all display types.

VideoSERVER technology is available in both a hardware appliance form or as a software license and allows you to connect standard LCD monitors, video projectors and Digital Signage to any TCP/IP network. In addition, the VideoSERVER Emulator can replace display software provided with full-matrix LED displays. The VideoSERVER TCP/IP enables any standard display device, providing both network connectivity and display formatting. Providing marquee-like formatting capabilities, standard VGA, DVI or HDMI based video displays can be used as small screen marquees. With a small format and standard-based interfaces, the VideoSERVER solution facilitates machine or station level ANDON at a very low cost. Using the VideoSERVER Web Emulator a mobile ANDON solution can be architected enabling mobile devices such as phones and tablets to see a real-time view of any Marquee Manager controlled display.

Combined with our Marquee Manager products the template-switching feature permits a single display to present data for many different applications (i.e., Facilities, Health & Safety, Maintenance, Production, Quality). Template switching may be timed, or controlled via external conditions or triggers. Having no moving parts and an embedded operating system, the VideoSERVER Appliance does not require OS service packs or virus scanning. Marquee Manager, supporting both VideoSERVER controlled displays, as well as traditional line and full matrix LED displays, facilitate the creation of a hybrid heterogeneous network of displays.

Purchasing the appropriate VideoSERVER license or appliance for each display to be controlled, and the appropriate Marquee Manager products, data from almost any source can be displayed in near real-time on one or many displays.
