Matrox Graphics announced recently that its high-performance Mura MPX Series video wall controller boards and M-Series multidisplay graphics cards will each be featured in a variety of environments as go-to multidisplay solutions April 25 at the NEC Showcase 2012 in London.
In partnership with PSCo Technical Distribution, four Mura boards will drive a four-by-four video wall centerpiece made up of 16 of NEC Display Solutions' new X463UN 46-inch, ultra-narrow-bezel displays. The setup will stand 4.5 meters high in portrait mode in the show's "Digital out-of-Home" zone, to demonstrate the video wall's effectiveness as a digital signage solution.
Additionally at NEC, "Professional Office of the Future" zone visitors will see a two-by-two, Mura-powered video wall leveraging an Exterity codec as well as a player from VisioSign. Mura PCI Express x16 Gen2 boards feature both HD resolution inputs and outputs and high-bandwidth digital content protection capture and output support. A single board can be used to create small video wall controllers made up of up to four outputs, while multiboard configurations support larger video walls and anything from presentation systems in conference rooms to collaboration systems within process control, according to Matrox.
Matrox M-Series card-powered setups will also be front and center in the "Professional Office of the Future" zone. Two M9125 PCIe x16 dual cards will drive a specialized desktop that will simultaneously feature four inputs on two pivoted displays using picture-in-picture. A single M9188 octal card will also power an eight-display high-resolution workstation.
For professional environments that require even larger desktop space, M-Series cards support multiboard hybriding, enabling up to 16 displays on a single computer. In the showcase's "Transport" zone, for example, a separate M9188 octal card will power a three-by-three flight-info display wall on a mobile trolley in conjunction with a second M-Series card, increasing passersby's ability to see more simultaneously.
