Versatile monitoring solution for multi-channel control rooms


Up-to-date broadcast monitoring and security control rooms require reliable multiple-image display systems that can be easily configured and controlled to meet the individual user’s needs. Darim’s SM1000 is a versatile solution that offers high-quality image processing and multiple-source displaying. The compact multiviewer system provides users with effective and convenient usage of the monitor workspace to the maximum.

Based on the highly scalable architecture consisting of a choice of various processing cards and their inputs, the system allows users combining various formats in one system. Multiple video sources are routed to a multiviewer and displayed on a single display.

Using the preset display layouts the user can easily and instantly select the appearance of the screen with one mouse click according to his wishes. The multiviewer system also provides users with excellent image quality, smooth zooming up to full screen. The multiviewer has been designed to display great number of cameras from network.

SM1000 solution  provides system integrators with the advanced graphic tools technologies (3D authoring tools - HotActions) to create efficient and flexible monitoring wall suitable for any demanding application.

The SM1000 system provides users with a special utility allowing easy creation and configuration of all available sources and streams.

The remote control possibility allows allocating a great number of streams among numerous SM1000 systems. It is all for optimizing the management process of several Multiviewer systems. You can manage various multichannel systems from one control PC.

SM1000 is ideal for all applications where video and audio monitoring is performed in mixed-signal environments. This includes live production and control room for broadcasters as well as central monitoring locations for video surveillance installations.
