Canvas from Jupiter Systems enables any source on the traditional display wall— video, data, applications, and more—to be shared with colleagues logged onto their PCs or mobile devices down the hall, across campus, or around the world. With Canvas, groups of related sources can be aggregated for sharing when more than one view of an operation is essential to a fuller understanding of status.
Canvas delivers end-to-end collaboration. Remote users can share streams from anywhere in the network with colleagues at the main display wall or on PCs and mobile devices at other locations. Remote clients can be both sources and destinations for visual information. And, unique in the industry, Canvas allows users to annotate directly on live video streams.
Canvas employs a secure client-server architecture, running on an existing LAN/WAN infrastructure or on a dedicated network. The system consists of the Canvas Server, a robust, scalable server application supported by Windows Vista and Windows 7, and two or more instances of Canvas Client, supported by Windows Vista and Windows 7. The client software can be installed on any model of Jupiter Fusion Catalyst display wall processor, as well as on most recent Windows PCs and tablets. Any PC on the network can also serve as a source of streams for Canvas with the addition of a Canvas Encoder, also available from Jupiter Systems.
