Matrox and Trenton Partner to Provide Integrated Hardware Systems for Video Walls

Matrox Graphics Inc. and Trenton Systems today announced a new technology partnership to deliver video wall solutions for the AV market, beginning with the Trenton TVC4401 4U rackmount system. The new Matrox-certified system can combine up to six, single-slot Matrox Mura MPX display controller boards—for up to 24 high-definition inputs and outputs—while leveraging the board’s 64 Gbit/sec duplex data transfer to ensure flawless display of HD input captures, at full resolution and frame rate. Matrox Mura MPX hardware can be controlled using network commands or a fully-integrated video wall software suite. Designed to enable AV integrators deploying video wall solutions across a wide range of project sizes, Trenton systems with Matrox Mura MPX boards meet collaborative display wall requirements for small-scale corporate boardroom and digital signage configurations to large-scale control rooms.

Matrox will be showcasing the Matrox/Trenton video wall solution at InfoComm 2011 in Booth 4063, from June 15-17, 2011.

Nope. However, you could have a machine running Metro 2033 as input and this would scale it over 4-24 monitors.

Think TripleHead2Go but much, much more versatile.

Interesting. I wonder what the cost of such a system would be though? Would this be scalable to multiple 4U units in a single rack through networking?

I've personally seen a system using 3 sets of 2 full height racks to power 240 XGA projectors that each throw a 67" screen, but I'm thinking that this product isn't designed for that type of scale. :p

They also have the 17-slot TVC5400, for 68 outputs per 5U. Might be able to link units, they didn't say on their site.

I've always wanted a whole wall as a monitor for gaming. I have a feeling buying 3 projectors would be cheaper though.

should come in handy for security systems and all big name news channels, and NASA

I'm the lawmaker here, so I had to specify what invites infractions.

On a serious note, at first sight I missed the "Video" part and thought it had to do with building computers inside walls and I got excited there for a moment and then I saw the giant wall of screens. :(

EDIT: Infraction gained. Mission accomplished. :pimp:
