Matrox at Digital Signage Expo 2015 — Product Preview
Multi-display graphics cards, video wall controller boards and H.264 encoders/decoders to be showcased
MONTREAL — Jan. 14, 2015 — At DSE 2015 (Las Vegas, Mar.11–12, booth 1645), Matrox® Graphics Inc. will present the C-Series™ multi-display graphics cards, the field-proven Matrox Mura™ MPX video wall controller boards and the cost-effective Matrox Maevex™ AV-over-IP encoders/decoders. Demonstrations will show digital signage integrators and retailers how to create high-impact, memorable user experiences for their customers using Matrox products to capture, display, and distribute content.
Multi-display Graphics Cards
Matrox C-Series multi-display graphics cards let signage integrators build high-impact display walls that are reliable and easy to install. C-Series provides outstanding video performance with advanced multi-monitor capabilities and EDID management via intuitive software to simplify both portrait and landscape installations. The cards feature 2 GB of on-board memory and secure mini DisplayPort connectivity. Matrox C680 supports up to six 4K/UHD displays. More displays can be supported by inserting two C680 cards into a system. The board-to-board framelock feature ensures synchronization of all displays to reduce tearing on digital signage and video walls. Matrox C420 is ideal for use in the small-form-factor systems needed in tight signage setup spaces. It’s also the fastest quad card with passive cooling, for increased reliability and silent operation. At DSE 2015, a C680 will drive displays in portrait mode.
Video Wall Capture and Display Boards
Matrox Mura MPX Series capture and display boards feature flexible inputs and high-quality outputs allowing AV integrators, system builders and equipment manufacturers to easily and cost-effectively build custom, high-density video wall controllers with up to 56 inputs and outputs. Exceptional-quality scaling, switching and compositing of source content including HDCP feeds are easily managed through intuitive software control options including Matrox MuraControl™, third-party software and simple integration with existing AV control systems. Rich transitions and eye-catching effects can be applied to both live and file-based content using the latest Mura Network API—a platform that software developers have used to build their own powerful video wall control solutions for Mura-based video walls. At DSE 2015, versatile VuWall2 DS signage software developed by VuWall Technology using the Matrox Mura Network API will be used to control a Mura MPX-based video wall.
Matrox Maevex 5100 Series H.264 encoders and decoders deliver exceptional-quality AV streaming at low bandwidth over standard IP networks for display or for storage anywhere on the LAN. Maevex encoders, priced at only $999 US (MSRP), can be combined with Maevex decoders or third-party software decoders to stream Full HD content to displays and projectors for cost-effective, high-quality digital signage AV distribution. Maevex comes bundled with Matrox PowerStream™ software for easy remote device management, stream switching and streaming/recording control, including user-definable bit rates between 100 Kbps and 25 Mbps. At DSE 2015 digital signage integrators will discover how they can take advantage of Maevex’s high MTBF and fanless design to create low maintenance installations as well as encode/stream solutions where digital signage players do the decoding.
