Jupiter’s Processor Power in GACA

GACA is the national organization that administrates all aviation-industry matters in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. GACA is responsible for air navigation control, air transportation development, air cargo, airports construction, and the overall operational management of the airport network.

GACA currently oversees Saudi Arabia’s 27 existing airports comprising of 13 international and 14 domestic airports, which totals to about 99.8 million passengers as of 2018.

The perfect convergence of IT and AV.

A PixelNet network comprises of input nodes and output nodes interconnected by one or more network switches via an IP network. Jupiter System was the chosen technology partner in this project: PixelNet is the evolution of a product that shaped the professional AV industry when we first introduced it back in 2006. We took the video wall processor concept that was typically confined to a single chassis and converted that technology into a modular network of interconnected nodes. 

With operations running 24/7 and 365 days per year, the GACA operation center found PixelNet to be the perfect self-configuring and self-monitoring system with 100% redundancy capabilities. 

Supporting an unlimited number of inputs and outputs, distributed over multiple walls per system, PixelNet never compresses a stream when sending video from one point to another which allows a true 4K quality.

Scalability is essentially infinite, with redundant networking capabilities, military-grade security, and KVM control of sources supporting many OS without installing anything additional.
