In-Store Entertainment Provider PlayNetwork Unveils Extravagant 30-Monitor Matrox-Powered Video Wall as Main Attraction of London Lingerie Store
Mura MPX Series controller boards drive digital signage across two video walls including eight meter-high installation for enhanced shopping experience
MONTREAL — April 23, 2013 — Matrox Graphics today announced that Matrox Mura™ MPX Series video wall controller boards were selected to drive two installations at a high-profile London lingerie store, including a sky-scraping, attention-grabbing two-story video wall.
In-store multimedia solutions provider PlayNetwork was contracted to enhance the in-store shopping experience of customers. This was accomplished through engrossing digital content displayed on the 30-monitor store centerpiece, and on a second, eight-monitor wall. Powered by a mix of Matrox Mura MPX-4/4, Mura MPX-4/2, and Mura MPX-4/0 boards, which feature HD-resolution inputs and outputs and high-performance, PCI Express® x16 architecture, the two video walls are hard to miss.
The display walls are controlled using a Matrox-compatible Crestron 2-Series Control System™ and a rack-mounted Apple® iPad®, for ease of use. From the iPad, telnet commands are sent through the Mura Network Programming Interface (API) and then to the Mura MPX boards that power each of the walls. As a result, dynamic on-screen content — such as video feeds to fashion shows and behind-the-scenes commercial footage — is easily managed and displayed for all to see.
“The Matrox Mura-based video walls contribute a great deal to the overall immersive customer experience,” said PlayNetwork EMEA managing director Dharmendra Patel. “Mura’s flexible board design and the degree of control enabled through its Network API were key factors in the success of our installation.”
