S1

Thunderview LED Display Controller

The S1 is NovaStar’s new generation of Thunderview series display controller especially designed for high-end display applications. With multiple I/O connectors and control connectors, it is ideal for different applications, such as broadcasting and television, indoor high-end screens with fine pitch, rental for stage, security monitoring, etc.

The S1 has 3G data transmission bandwidth. A single coaxial connector can support up to 1920×1080@60Hz and the device supports up to 3840×1080@60Hz. Benefiting from the SerDes technology, the S1 can realize zero-frame latency.

Connection of hardware devices to the S1 is shown in the figure below. The device must be powered off before connection.

Resources

  • The inputs of the S1 includes 3G-SDI×1, HDMI×1, DVI×1 and support input resolutions up to 3840×1080@60Hz.

  • The outputs of the S1 includes BNC×2 pairs.

  • Zero latency feature, the whole system includes S1 and TR100 only 1 frame.
