E-mail Print PDF

Control4 announces the availability of BakPak on Pakedge RK-1 routers--an integration of management software and router providing customers with a monitored, intelligent home network.

Bryston BakPakEssentially a leveraging of the February 2016 Control4 acquisition of Pakedge, BakPak manages both IP network and smart home devices. It also delivers real-time visibility of network health, allowing diagnostics and troubleshooting before problems happen, mitigating downtime and service calls.

“With BakPak monitoring the home network, the automation system, and all of the devices connected to it, remote management becomes standard for dealers,” Control4 says. “The connected home is a reality-- with an ever-increasing number of connected devices, integrators need more sophisticated services to meet the expectations of customers. That is why we are including BakPak on every RK-1 Router as well as every NK-1 wireless controller, to provide our dealers with the remote management tool they need for every customer.”

The VWPOP85 pop-out universal multi-screen video wall mount has been a large success for Edbak. A big part of the reason for its success is…well, how large it is.

Edbak VWPOP85

The VWPOP85 pop-out universal multi-screen video wall mount has been a large success for Edbak. A big part of the reason for its success is…well, how large it is.

This unit is built to handle those 42 inch to 85 inch screens, up to 80 kilos of display. These are the sorts of screens you use to build impressive, room-filling and lobby-filling video walls.

While large itself, the VWPOP85 universal video wall mount weighs only 14kg. It is designed and manufactured in Europe and carries all the leading certifications, including TUV Rhineland. It is fully VESA compliant.

With size and certifications on its resume, it needed only one more quality to move it up to a best-in-class mounting solution: a patented one-touch pop-out mechanism for access and service to each display in the video wall.

The company will enter the market with a bare metal product that contains server class compute nodes based on a system on a chip (SoC) with SATA, networking, serial port and boot FLASH interfaces on the same chip.

“Microservers are densely packed clusters of low power servers running computationally light workloads between thousands of processor cores, 2x reduction in Capex, 2x reduction in power consumption, 10x reduction in space, 14x increase in rack performance,” says Fred Buining, CEO and Managing Director.  Buining [shown in picture] was previously Director Technology and Markets for Logic Supply Europe.

At ILA, multiple microserver nodes will be clustered in a 2U case with maximum of 64 nodes, providing up to 1536 cores (depending on which SoC is chosen). It is the World’s Densest 64-Node Microserver System.
