Sydney, Australia – March 5, 2012 – Jupiter Systems, the industry leader in display wall technology, and Image Design Technology (IDT), the leading Australian distributor of audiovisual and display technology, today announced plans to present an Australian and New Zealand Roadshow. The Roadshow will highlight the advanced visualisation technology that supports Australia and New Zealand’s most important infrastructure projects in Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS), Security, Emergency, Utilities and Mining. The program will focus on training systems integrators, AV consultants and end-user companies in Jupiter’s state-of-the-art display wall technology.
Throughout the month of March, Sydney-based IDT also plans to use the training sessions in key Australian and New Zealand cities to seek additional relationships with local systems integration firms and consultants.

“IDT has built a strong reputation based on its service, training and support, as well as its depth of technology understanding and expertise,” said Dustan. “As IDT pursues an investment strategy that focuses on the best opportunities for growth and profitability in high performance display wall visualisation in government and top performing companies, we are looking forward to supporting these efforts by building out a strong network of systems integrators and consultants.”
“We look forward to partnering with Jupiter Systems and educating the local market in the new products that we’ll be rolling out in 2012, said Gerry Wilkins, Managing Director IDT. This Roadshow is a part of IDT’s ongoing commitment to providing high quality training and support to the existing customer base but also extending these relationships to our customer’s clients by providing training to the end users. In addition to this, the Roadshow provides an opportunity for IDT customers to engage directly with a valued manufacturer, Jupiter Systems, and its technical support team.”
IDT/Jupiter’s end-user customers span a range of large installations, including Australia Financial and Energy Exchange (FEX), New South Wales Rural Fire Service, Western Australia’s Main Roads (see attached photo), Ergon Energy, James Cooke University, Macquarie Bank, New Zealand Transport Authority, Rio Tinto mining, and the Western Australia Police.
Jupiter-provided processors are used to control large display walls that enable the visualisation of large numbers of data inputs and sources. These display walls are frequently used in industries that support a country’s basic infrastructure, such as transportation, defense, security, power, telecommunications and mining. Display wall processors provide the nerve center for video walls used in control room operations. These powerful systems elicit data from a broad range of information sources and present it on a large display wall or an operator’s desk where it can be viewed, shared, and manipulated. Jupiter controllers provide an easy-to-use, high resolution graphical user interface that enables the viewer to see events as they happen in the field and that allows users to zero in on specific areas within that field of reference.
Jupiter’s PixelNet® distributed display wall system utilises data network technology to capture, distribute, control and display digital and analog video sources for audiovisual applications. PixelNet adopts Gigabit Ethernet and Ethernet switches for use with high resolution, real-time video. Using packet-switching technology, PixelNet® allows any information source to be shown on any display, whether as a window on a single display or as a window spanning multiple display devices in a display wall. In addition, PixelNet® allows any source to be shown at any size on any display or array of displays.
