Advantech has introduced its latest premium video wall controller AVS-540, validated with Matrox's Mura MPX video wall controller boards and tested and certified by VuWall Technology, according to a company announcement. The complete video wall solution will be showcased at next month's Integrated Systems Europe 2014 in Amsterdam.
This video wall solution includes Matrox validated industrial server boards, chassis and Advantech Video Wall Controllers — the AVS series pre-configured systems with VuWall2DS software — designed for 20-output video walls, and will aim to enable OEMs and system integrators to create video wall solutions for various markets such as control rooms for factory automation, transportation, surveillance, digital signage and video conference.
The AVS-540 is the 4U Rackmount Xeon E5-2600 Video Wall Controller. The AVS-540 pre-configured system or ASMB-822 server board with five PCIe x16 slots can support five Mura MPX cards, allowing for a maximum of 20 video source inputs and display outputs corresponding to 20 monitors.
"The Matrox-validated product range from Advantech includes the AVS-540 video wall controller, with space for up to five Matrox Mura MPX boards," Cecilia Wills of Matrox Graphics said in the announcement. "High-impact, world-class video walls based on the latest Advantech and Matrox technology can be tailored for a wide variety of public and private applications such as presentation, digital signage, control rooms and security/surveillance."
Matrox Mura MPX Series video wall controller boards feature flexible inputs and outputs that let integrators build custom video walls of almost any size using a single high-density controller system, the company said.
At ISE 2014, Advantech will partner with VuWall Technology to showcase VuWall2DS on the AVS-540. VuWall2DS has been developed to make it easy for users to create dynamic video wall content through views transitions, taking full advantage of the latest developments on the Matrox Mura MPX-based video wall controllers.
