Hiperwall Expects Larger Market for Electronic Displays

Software maker Hiperwall Inc. has introduced the latest update to its product to keep up with the expected growth in global demand for large video wall displays.

The latest version of the company’s software has introduced brief text descriptions that tell the viewer what is being shown. It also adds colorful borders to attract attention.
CEO Stephen Jenks says the pandemic, global conflicts and unrest have weighed heavily on the market.

“However, we’re optimistic and have been developing exciting new technologies to diversify our software portfolio, which we’re forecasting will drive substantial growth in the coming years,” Jenks, who is also is a co-founder of the company, told the Business Journal on June 27.

Police, JetBlue

He cites forecasts that the video wall market—both the control rooms and the walls themselves—could nearly triple in the coming years.

Jenks says the company’s Experience Center in Mission Viejo is designed to give potential customers a better sense of Hiperwall’s capabilities.

Hiperwall’s software powers more than 4,000 installations in 72 countries around the world, including police dispatch centers.

Local customers include UCI, the Irvine Police Department, Santa Ana Police Department, SoCal Edison, SoCal Gas as well as NASA, Warner Brothers, JetBlue, military locations and corporate offices.

Hiperwall 9.0 also provides several features designed to streamline command and control room workflows and operations.

The company says it has developed a “software-based video wall system that is completely hardware agnostic, allowing users to deploy systems with nothing more than commonly available PCs, displays, and network equipment.”

More Flexible

“We have provided all customers with easier and more flexible configuration capabilities,” according to CEO Jenks.

The company says that for customers with multiple video walls, text labels and content, borders can be adjusted and customized to compensate for wall sizes, viewing distances and customer preferences.

Hiperwall version 9.0 control room video wall software can be purchased through authorized dealers. Customers with an active HiperCare contract are eligible to upgrade their systems for free.

Version 9.0 was introduced on June 20.

The company began as a research project funded by the National Science Foundation at UCI in 2004.

The privately held company does not release revenue figures.
