Megapixel Announces New 20G Switch Capabilities

Arriving in HELIOS software version v24.03.0 is the ability to effectively double the bandwidth capability of all RS12 and 12-port M4250 switches (MSM4214X) by utilizing the 2nd 10G port with an additional link from HELIOS. This is especially useful with the growing use of 2.5GbE in many LED tiles allowing access to the full 20Gb switch capacity. This enhancement is available for all existing and future owners of RS12 and 12-port M4250 switches, at no charge.

Scott Blair, VP of Product & Project Management at Megapixel says: “Our customers are the lifeblood of our business and it’s important that we protect their investment in our HELIOS LED Processing Platform and its accessories, as such we’re delighted that we can deliver this new functionality without any additional costs.  Doubling the effective switch capacity is another of the many ways in both hardware and software developments that we’ve provided for clients to capitalize on their existing investments in the HELIOS platform”.

In addition to the new 20G capabilities, this new version also adds other additional features and numerous improvements to the HELIOS platform.  See the full release notes for more details.
