Matrox Unveils Multi-Monitor Configuration Controllers For Video Walls

Matrox Graphics has developed a new range of multi-monitor controllers (appliances and PCI Express cards) designed to drive four discreet displays from one signal. The new QuadHead2Go Series facilitates video walls that are scalable and flexible while delivering pristine image quality.

The new series from Matrox is targeted at OEMs, system integrators, and AV installers specializing in original and creative designs and includes the company’s PowerWall multiview software that can be used to configure any type and size of video wall.

QuadHead2Go controllers capture a single 4Kp60 video signal for display across up to four Full HD 1920x1200 screens. The input content could be from any source—including professional graphics cards and integrated GPUs, digital signage players, laptops, and more—while displays can be arranged in classic rectangular 2x2, 2x1, 3x1, 4x1, 1x2, 1x3, or 1x4 setups, or a variety of other artistic configurations. Multiple QuadHead2Go units can be used together to easily build ultra-large video walls under any operating system, including Microsoft® Windows® 10 and Linux®.
The new QuadHead2Go products enable plug and play setup when using the default 2x2 landscape configuration. This means customers don't have to install software or connect to a video source. On-device buttons on the appliance enable users to cycle through pre-set configurations to easily select and set the display layout, as well as access pre-saved images to set up display positions and fine-tune bezel-displaced pixels.

The Matrox PowerWall is a management software suite that allows users to work in offline mode to customize configurations and control the display outputs independently, even before establishing an active connection to the QuadHead2Go unit. The Matrox QuadHead2Go REST API is also available for integrators and developers looking to create custom functions and applications.

Fadhl Al-Bayaty, business development manager, Matrox Graphics, said customers could use the controller as a standalone option for small configurations, connect multiple units together to create high-density video walls, or deploy in a number of other video wall arrays.

The Matrox QuadHead2Go multi-monitor controllers, in both appliance and card form factors, will be available in Q3 2019.
