Matrox launches new videowall management software15 May 2014
Matrox Graphics’ MuraControl 3.0 for Windows videowall management software is now available. Designed for videowalls that use Matrox Mura MPX Series capture and display boards, key new features of this release include the ability to render HTML5 feeds such as social media, weather and stock market data and the ability to add multi-lingual Unicode text overlays across individual source windows or the entire videowall.
“This update to MuraControl gives videowall integrators and system builders even greater control over Mura MPX-based videowall content and layouts,” said Helgi Sigurdsson, product manager, Matrox Graphics. “The intuitive, feature-rich application lets users create, save and edit layouts offline or in real time so their content appears exactly where and how they want it.”
Matrox Mura MPX boards let integrators easily and cost-effectively build high-density controller systems that support custom videowalls of almost any size. The boards feature highly flexible, universal input channel support for both digital and analogue (DVI, RGB/VGA, Component, S-Video and composite) video signals plus ‘exceptional’ quality scaling, switching, and compositing of source content. Compatible Mura MPX analogue video capture cards provide additional NTSC/PAL/SECAM input channel support and the Mura MPX-SDI board features two 3G SDI video inputs and two DVI outputs.
Additional new features in MuraControl 3.0 for Windows include support for analog input capture adjustments, options for ‘signal lost’ events that let the user define what appears on an overlay window when the source signal is lost or not connected and options for input auto detect filtering that let the user specify a source type.
The version 3.0 software is now available for purchase, and a 21-day trial version can be downloaded from the Matrox website.
MuraControl 3.0 will be demonstrated on Matrox Mura-powered video walls for the first time at InfoComm 2014.
