H Series video splicing processors – offering 4K video processing and an all-in-one splicer and controller to simplify system integration – featured at every stadium at the 2022 World Cup.

NovaStar processors capped in third World Cup running

NovaStar provided H Series video splicing processors at all eight stadiums that hosted matches at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar – the third consecutive World Cup at which the company has been involved.

The H Series features true 4K video processing, as well as an all-in-one splicer and controller, which simplifies system integration.

The built-in high-definition image processing engine, support for HDR, wide colour gamut transmission, high contrast and abundant colours provide exceptional detail in both light and shadow. NovaStar’s HQ scaling technology, which includes an adaptive content-scaling engine, prevents the loss of details and border errors when zooming out, as well as jagged edges and blurring when zooming in, allowing for a perfect recovery of the original image.

The H series supports numerous layers with an unrestricted arrangement. Each output daughterboard provides 16 layers that can freely cross different output loading areas, while keeping the layer size the same. Functions such as image capture, layer configuration and layer rotation are supported.

Hot plugs for inputs and outputs, and smart data recovery functions, offer safety and convenient operation. An industrial-grade redundant power module ensures stability.

NovaStar technology has featured at the Olympics and WWE events. The LED screen at the Tokyo Dome stadium – at more than 1,000 sq m, the largest stadium screen in Japan – is served by two fully equipped H5 controllers and six CVT10-S fibre converters from NovaStar.
