Matrox aims for video wall 'sweet spot' with new graphics card

11 Feb 16

Matrox has unveiled what it says is the world’s first, single-slot nine-output Full HD graphics card for three-by-three video walls.

The card supports nine 1920x1080 displays at 60Hz and Matrox says it offers simpler integration and lower cost of ownership, including low power consumption at 75W.

Caroline Injoyan, Matrox Graphics business development manager, says three-by-three configurations are ‘the sweet spot’ for many digital signage installations and control room video walls.

“Now with the C900, for the first time nine Full HD displays can be driven from a single-slot card and system integrators can easily offer a turnkey solution to power three-by-three vidoe walls,” Injoyan says.

The new offering supports stretched desktop across all nine synchronised outputs, allowing users to run any application full screen across a three-by-three video wall.

Matrox says this makes the card ideal for signage installations in retail, corporate, entertainment and hospitality enviornments, as well as control room video wall solutions in security, process control and transportation.

The Matrox PowerDesk desktop management software for Windows included with the C900 includes a compreshensive set of tools including bezel management and EDID management, to configure and manage multi-display setups, while advanced APIs are available for developers and OEMs wanting to build custom interfaces and applications.
