The Art Of Control · NovaStar Nova Viplex

Priced at $0

Water shapes its course according to the nature of the ground over which it flows. ~ Sun Tzu
                 

NovaStar software is all about power.

Now you can finally be the control freak everyone thinks you already are.

Connect

We have Ethernet and we have LAN. And we have 4G WiFi in AP mode and in Sta mode. We even have WiFi in AP+Sta mode. I had to Google some of this stuff.

Cards

Load a current configuration file or enter a new one. Boom. Send to hardware and save to screen. Boom. Save to file to save time later. Boom. You are now an expert.

Selling

Advertising changes throughout the day and VNNOX empowers the user to divide up time periods to play a target list in those time periods. Scheduling is your new super-power.

OS

Of course you can load Viplex Express on Windows OS. How else could we market this? But did you expect Viplex Handy to be on Android and iOS? Didn't think so.

VNNOX

NovaStar created VNNOX subscription-based cloud publishing to manage remote content and terminal control and added Nova iCare to monitor your system health.

Synchronous

Advanced synchronous playing and dispatching technologies create highly accurate synchronous playing of the same image on different displays. Just saying.

Configure

Login to Taurus through Viplex Handy. Go to screen management and then screen setting. Then screen configuration and change what is needed. Enter and done.

Bright

Taurus connects to the optional NovaStar NS060 light sensor. Set the adjustment rules on Viplex on a PC or phone. Don't you wish managing your teenagers was this easy?

Splice

Set the parameters on Viplex for both individual playing and for splicing playing across multiple displays. And then take a nice break. You work far too hard.

Manual · NovaStar Nova ViPlex V1.0.0

While heading the profit of my counsel, avail yourself also of any helpful circumstances over and beyond the ordinary rules. ~ Sun Tzu

NovaStar Nova ViPlex comes in 3 flavors: Windows, Android and OSX. This guide is specific to Nova ViPlex Express for the Windows PC.

ViPlex is the client software of the new class of NovaStar Multimedia Players, the Taurus Series T6 and T3. The software manages LED Displays, editing and publishing.

The interface can be described using a word that is rarely if ever associated with LED management software: Intuitive.

Taurus Series are wireless players that offer WiFi AP mode and WiFi Sta mode. Third-party extenders are available for LED Displays that are located at greater distances.

Equipped with a SIM card, the Taurus TB6 and TB3 can access the 4G Network.

Taurus Multimedia Players can be bound to NovaStar's new VNNOX cloud publishing system and NovaiCare cloud monitoring.

We have created a quick reference guide for Nova ViPlex Express that should provide answers for most every question that comes up during an installation. We otherwise encourage you to download the manual for a comprehensive solution.

Nova ViPlex Express V1.0.0 is compatible with:


 • NovaStar Taurus Series Multimedia Players : TB6, T6, TB3, T3

 • NovaStar MRV Series Receiving Cards: 200·210·220, 300·320, 330·340, 350, 360·365

 • NovaStar Armor Receiving Cards: A8s

 • NovaStar Monitoring Cards: MON300

 • NovaStar Multifunction Cards: MFN300

 • NovaStar Sensors: NS060C, MTH310

Installations rely on a Multimedia Player connected to the PC using WiFi or LAN, and then to the LED Display through Ethernet.

Nova ViPlex runs on Windows 10 and legacy versions and on OSX. CPU performance is a minimum of 1.0 GHz with 256 MB.

In practice, a modern mid-range consumer computer that is online is recommended.

NovaStar NovaiCare

Telematics Canada is as proud of our fair pricing as we are of our brilliant technology, which is why we don't hesitate to clearly list both in plain view for our visitors to review and compare to our competition. We respect the value of your time by not wasting days of it just so you can get a ballpark quote for your project. Which is great news for our new clients. For the analog guys still playing in the old school sandbox...not so much.

Checklist

Don't drive yourself crazy trying to figure out the right series and the correct specifications and dimensions for your project. Just contact our offices and in ten minutes we can review everything and find out what works best for the space and the budget. There...I'm feeling better already.

Order

If you are like everyone else, you will leave this part to the last possible moment. Then we will share in your stress and jump through every imaginable hoop to meet your evolving schedule. We strive to have the most popular NovaStar products in stock at all times, but orders are first-come first-serve.

Ship

We can ship your order by air or ground as your budget and time allows. Shipping and Customs schedules can be estimated, but are external variables that are outside of our control. Allow plenty of time for unexpected delays. You would not believe how many National Holidays are observed in China. Seriously.

Install

Your installation will include a PC for content and a NovaStar controller to direct that content to the display. There will be power and data cables to hook everything up and a frame or support beams to mount your display. If you need assistance with this, Telematics can often suggest a local partner.

Service

NovaStar provides their full technical expertise to assist Telematics and our clients with any issues where we have requested their assistance. Most problems are diagnosed and resolved very quickly using remote access software, Skype and webcams or a simple exchange of emails and phone calls.

Warranty

NovaStar supports their products with a comprehensive 3-year factory warranty that is completely free of fine print from the Law Firm of Obfuscate, Muddle and Flummox, and is instead defined by simply keeping our customers' confidence by standing behind each and every product they make.
