SmartKake V2 creative Processor


SmartKake is a brand new creative multi-display processor introduced by Tricolor which focuses on retail and exhibition display market. One single SmartKake supports one 4K signal capturing and 4 Full-HD outputs with any degree rotation and unlimited cascading.


Ultra 4K


SmartKake V2 has been designed to use 4K Resolution. It also includes a range of features beyond Resolution, such as: High Dynamic Range (HDR), Wider Color Spectrum, Color Bit Depth, Immersive Audio and more. These performance advances enable unprecedented visual experience, content and other devices to fully replicate the richness of life’s sights and sounds, and allow viewers to more accurately experience the content creator’s vision.


Flexible Layout


Smartkake V2 avoids the traditional MxN matrix video wall layout. It uses a direct 360° view video wall technology due to its ability to deliver seamless images, scalability to any size or shape, and excellent optimal characteristics that make video wall content look great from any angle.


Device Cascading


Smartkake V2 provides a cascading solution, which enables multiple power products to share the network connectivity by cascading them through LAN interface. Each Smartkake can control four video walls, and it can support unlimited groups of video wall by cascading. It guarantees the entire system output synchronization. It can access and administer each device in the cascading chain over the LAN from anywhere via various protocols. To reduce the number of Ethernet connections or save networking costs in your data center, Tricolor’s cascading technology delivers incredible results.
