Hiperwall HidraLink Video Wall Now With Thermal Imaging Support
The solution supports video walls with up to four 4K displays and is geared toward screening high-traffic areas, providing distancing guidelines and more.
IRVINE, Calif. — Hiperwall, a provider of commercialized video wall technology, introduces HidraLink, a new video wall software solution aimed at helping businesses combat the spread of coronavirus via widespread, transparent temperature monitoring of staff and customers.
Targeting small businesses, the solution is said to offer less intrusive temperature screening and can be used to publicly display a thermal imaging camera feed on wall-mounted displays. HidraLink is also an ideal platform for small businesses that want to install multi-display signage or quad-display video walls in their lobbies or showrooms, according to an announcement. With support for up to four displays in any configuration, HidraLink is a flexible and secure solution for displaying messaging, distancing guidelines, news, advertisements and more.
“Since inception, Hiperwall has continuously worked to build and manage cost-effective video wall software solutions for businesses of all sizes,” states Tom Scott, CEO of Hiperwall. “Now, with businesses facing the unprecedented difficulty of navigating operation in the wake of COVID-19, Hiperwall’s HidraLink offers a unique, accessible solution to safely resume operation while keeping both employees and customers informed in real-time.”
HidraLink is a professional video display solution that provides a platform for instant temperature screening of a few or many people at once in high-traffic areas using advanced thermal imaging cameras, according to the announcement.
While COVID-19 has caused a sudden demand for thermal imaging solutions, Hiperwall has been integrating thermal imaging into its video wall platform for over a decade. The company’s first major installation featuring this screening capability was at the Brussels International Airport. HidraLink’s low barrier to entry puts this same kind of transparent screening technology in reach of all businesses, and it can be scaled to address most business needs, the company says.
HidraLink allows up to four displays to be placed separate from one another throughout a room, or installed in a 2×2 video wall layout where one image can be stretched across all four screens. Displays are mounted to a wall and connected to a local PC via HDMI cables. Once connected, the HidraLink software provides users an intuitive interface for sending a thermal camera feed and individual desktop applications to the displays. The operator can continue their workflow on their control PC while applications are sent to displays in the background.
For quick deployment, Hiperwall has teamed up with Seneca to offer certified, turn-key hardware solutions for a wide range of video wall applications. Additionally, the company has tested and validated support for thermal imaging cameras from FLIR, Fotric and Seek Thermal.
HidraLink is said to be ideal for restaurants, QSR, small retail stores, medical and dental offices, small businesses, security and schools.
