Single Display video wall controller

Learn More

TransForm NSD-420 is a compact video wall controller perfectly suited for monitoring both baseband and networked video sources. It enables customers to capture sources (networked sources, local DVI/RGB inputs, HDMI inputs and analog video inputs) from anywhere, and display them with high resolution 3D images on a video wall in combination. The flexibly configurable TransForm NSD-420 can either be used as a standalone video wall controller, powered by Barco’s CMS control room management software, or act as a perfectly integrated display node for a video wall in a networked TransForm N solution.

As a fully qualified platform for Barco's advanced CMS control room management system, TransForm NSD 420 allows organizing display content (including 3D-accelerated) in a smart way to enhance awareness and improve decision-making.

Possibility to integrate into networked visualization system

TransForm NSD-420 can be used as a display controller running all types of Windows 10 based local applications and at the same time being part of a TransForm N networked visualization system, capable of controlling multiple video walls. This offers customers a complete data overview, while providing them with interaction and collaboration possibilities. As such, information can be shared between multiple sites, making crucial information omnipresent throughout your organization and beyond.

Available configurations

TransForm NSD-420 is available in several types of freely configured and pre-configured configurations:

  • As a standalone single display video wall controller, running the full CMS Control room Management system in a single box.
  • As a Single Display node in a TransForm N installation, running only the client parts of CMS on the NSD-420, and being part of a centrally managed TransForm N installation.
