MeetJUGGLER

Extend the possibilities of your media server with powerful pixel processing.

Juggler is the highly modular hardware-based pixel processor range by 7thSense. Complementing the 7thSense GPU-based Delta Media Server range, Juggler pushes hardware performance and efficiency to the next level, and with ultimate connectivity.

What inputs do you need to combine… and to what outputs?

The Juggler system maps the whole-site canvas, uniting, processing and placing all sources with all displays, expanding inputs and outputs as required.

THE JUGGLER ADVANTAGE

  • Key to Juggler is its unlimited I/O scalability, with DisplayPort™ and HDMI® I/O available today and options for SDI and Video over IP coming in the near future. The FPGA-based Juggler system can process a data bandwidth of approximately 14 GB/s. As an example, that equates to a canvas size of 16K x 4K at 60 fps 10-bit 4:4:4. Freedom to utilise the available bandwidth to match your requirements is at the heart of the Juggler system.
  • Up to four Juggler systems (each equivalent to a 16K x 4K 10-bit 4:4:4 canvas) can be linked together to create one giant canvas with window movement across the entire system.
  • Daisy-chain units as required via its proprietary high-speed box to box fibre-optic link, to expand I/O type and capacity. Juggler also offers confidence monitoring of all inputs via thumbnail matrix.
  • Modular hardware base for high bit-depth pixel-based colour processing, warp and blend. This leaves media servers to run media shows as inputs among others, within a single overall canvas. 2D, passive and active stereo 3D are fully supported.
  • Minimal latency, essential for live performance. Juggler genlocks all sources to same-frame accuracy, with instant system failover across all connected devices via frame-data monitoring (API available for third-party sources).
  • Juggler’s node-based graphical user interface, Compere, can be used for complete system topology visualisation.
  • Live manipulation of windows is made possible through the Compere user interface or via touch-based control when used in conjunction with Medialon Marquee.
  • Juggler’s newly expanded suite of capabilities including Output Canvas Bussing make it possible to combine the power of multiple Jugglers to achieve common-canvas processing of up to 32 x UHD outputs with up to 32 x inputs, all at 60 FPS 10-bit 4:4:4, achieving a higher resolution and higher bit-depth than any other pixel processor on the market.

The possibilities of Juggler are as wide as your imagination.

  • Built to stand as the backbone of complex high-resolution systems, Juggler streamlines, simplifies and optimises workflow and can be daisy-chained into an installation, or operated as a standalone unit.
  • Juggler is ideal for very large video walls and complex multiple displays and ultra-high-resolution canvases, with extensibility to accept unlimited sources.
  • New to Juggler is the ability to output DisplayPort MST content. This allows Juggler to take in a source that is a full 4K raster and split it up into smaller segments to support a variety of displays that require MST inputs for higher resolution sources.
  • In Warp and Blend mode, Juggler’s use the bulk of their processing for handling geometry adjustments and blend overlays, pulling video channels from local inputs or a fibre bus, applying 2D MPCDI warp and blend data, and outputting to a single output at up to 4K 60 FPS 10-bit 4:4:4. The Warp and Blend functionality is especially useful when you have a larger blended surface that requires several projectors, but the content could be served by fewer outputs of your media system.
  • Juggler is also able to respond to the 7thSense IntelligentSource telemetry. IntelligentSource data contains telemetry info about the video stream and the upstream render engine. The user can define thresholds for frame rate, render rate, GPU health, frame drop, and more. If any of these thresholds are crossed, the system can automatically trigger user defined actions, such as switching to a backup source.
