Matrox takes control of video walls30 January 2012
The latest Matrox Mura MPX Series video wall controller board and Matrox Avio KVM extender solutions are among Matrox Graphics’ priority items for ISE 2012.
Featuring a four input/four output board design, Mura can power multiple high-performance video walls – including a 3×3, nine-monitor platform – while Avio’s fibre-optic transmission technology will extend uncompressed HD content from the host system to a remote dual-monitor operator station.
Matrox personnel are demonstrating the productivity enhancements gained by adding two monitors or projectors to a notebook or desktop computer, courtesy of Matrox DualHead2Go external multi-monitor adapters.
Based on PCI Express x16 Gen 2 technology, Mura is capable of driving conference and boardroom style presentation platforms of up to four displays with a single board. Multiple Mura boards can be combined to build larger, high-density, scalable video walls for digital signage or control room and other mission-critical environments.
Matrox Avio KVM extenders can support one dual-link DVI or two single-link DVI displays, keyboard, mouse and USB devices at distances of up to 300m and 2000m over a single fibre-optic cable in multi-mode and single-mode, respectively.
Matrox DualHead2Go external multi-monitor adapters connect two monitors or projectors to a laptop or desktop computer, and use the system’s existing GPU to provide uncompressed graphics and video content across all monitors. The expanded onscreen desktop allows users to run full-screen applications on each display or open one program across both outputs.
