Elegant, Feature-Rich Video Walls

QuadHead2Go Q185 DisplayPort™ input and QuadHead2Go Q155 HDMI® input controllers capture a single video signal—of up to 4Kp60 and 8Kx8K—for display across up to four screens, at resolutions up to 1920x1200 per output. The input content could be from any source, while displays can be arranged in a variety of artistic configurations or classic rectangular 2x2, 2x1, 3x1, 4x1, 1x2, 1x3, or 1x4 setups. Each output can be further personalized to have its own resolution, be independently rotated, cropped, upscaled, downscaled, and positioned anywhere. In addition, QuadHead2Go units can be used together to easily build ultra-large video walls under any operating system, including Microsoft® Windows® 10 and Linux®.
 
Matrox QuadHead2Go multi-monitor controllers will be in action at ISE 2020 (booth 11-D120).
