About TransForm ECU-200
TransForm ECU-200 is Barco's new generation of video wall controllers, engineered to perfectly master even the largest video walls. Optimally using the extreme bandwidth capacity of the 3rd generation PCI Express backbone, Transform ECU-200 is capable of capturing and displaying high amounts of video sources and graphical application data on even the largest control room video walls. Running standard Windows OS on a latest generation Intel QuadCore CPU, TransForm ECU-200 is a powerful platform for running applications directly on the video wall controller.
With Barco’s Control Room Management Suite CMS in combination with the networking and IP stream handling capabilities, the ECU-200 can either be operated standalone or be seamlessly integrated in a full TransForm N collaboration environment.
Very large displays capabilities
Thanks to its modular and scalable PCIe 3.0-based architecture, and high density output cards, TransForm ECU-200 is the solution for seamlessly and synchronously driving all sizes of video walls, including screens of up to 4K resolution.
High density for high number and types of sources
TransForm ECU-200 uses newest generation high density input cards supporting a high number of directly connected DVI/RGB- and Analog Video sources, in a particularly compact configuration. The PCIe 3.0 switch matrix backbone implemented in the TransForm ECU-200 base unit, combined with optional extenders, delivers double the bandwidth compared to a legacy PCIe 2.0 based system. This allows more source windows, with absolute freedom of placement and zooming.
Configuring the ECU-200 with one or multiple Stream Capture Units (SCU), opens the door to universal IP streams decoding. Barco brings the most comprehensive and future proof list of supported IP stream formats to the TransForm ECU-200 platform.
Standalone wall controller or fully networked
Whereas TransForm ECU-200 can start in many single wall installations as a Standalone Wall controller, it can be easily and fully integrated into a networked TransForm N system. A networked Transform ECU-200 behaves as a TransForm N output node and application node with additional local source capture capabilities. It is then an integral part of a collaborative system environment, managed by the Control Room Management Suite (CMS).
Equipped with the latest generation Intel® Core™ i7 Quad Core processor and in combination with the multi-GPU graphic system architecture, TransForm ECU-200 is the powerful controller for running demanding applications on the large Windows™ desktop with a high-res display canvas covering up to the whole video wall.
Ease of use and reliability
TransForm ECU-200 comes pre-installed with the advanced Barco Control Room Management Suite (CMS) software, which not only manages the applications and sources on the directly connected video wall, but also enables collaboration between operators, managers and other authorized personnel in the control center, using the intuitive and easy to use ‘Side Bar’ utility. TransForm ECU-200 meets all demanding 24/7 control room visualization needs, supported by redundancy and hot-plug capability features for the critical components. Furthermore, the system is easy to install and easy to use. It comes pre-configured out of the box, assuring a simplified and hassle-free setup.
