Matrox Introduces D-Series Graphics Cards for High-Density-Output Video Walls

Matrox is pleased to announce Matrox D-Series, a new family of next-generation, multi-display graphics cards designed to power video walls in commercial and critical 24/7 environments. These new single-slot graphics cards drive up to four 4Kp60 displays and can be easily combined to output up to 16 x 4K monitors for high-density video walls in control rooms, enterprises, industries, government, military, pro A/V, digital signage, security, and more. Matrox D-Series graphics cards will be in action at ISE 2020 (booth 11-D120).

Leveraging a custom-built NVIDIA Quadro embedded GPU, D-Series delivers smooth video playback and graphics performance on up to four high-resolution HDMI or DisplayPort displays. OEMs, system integrators, and AV installers can also combine up to four D-Series cards via board-to-board framelock cables, to drive up to sixteen synchronized 4K displays. In addition, D-Series offers HDCP support for playback of protected audio and video content, as well as Microsoft DirectX 12, OpenGL 4.5, and OpenCL 1.2 support to run the latest professional applications.
Proven video wall ecosystem
D-Series works seamlessly with Matrox's complete video wall portfolio. Pair D-Series with Matrox Mura IPX capture and IP encode/decode cards for exceptional multi-channel 4K and Full HD capture, streaming, and recording support, and/or combine with Matrox QuadHead2Go multi-monitor controllers to power up to an astonishing 64 1920x1080p60 displays from one system.

Custom control
D-Series includes the robust and field-proven Matrox PowerDesk desktop management software. Users can select from a variety of advanced tools—including stretched or independent desktops, clone mode, pivot, bezel management, edge overlap, and more—to easily configure and customize multi-display setups. Additionally, the feature-rich Matrox MuraControl video wall management software provides users with an intuitive platform to manage video wall sources and layouts either locally or remotely, and in real time.

"It is an exciting time for video wall technology as customers are constantly demanding new and innovative ways to optimize visual platforms," said Fadhl Al-Bayaty, business development manager, Matrox. "With a new best-of-breed graphics range offering exceptional 4K output support, Matrox's deep product portfolio enables OEMs and system integrators to deliver industry-leading video wall solutions with unrivaled video capture, encoding, decoding, and now display support."

Availability
Matrox D-Series quad-monitor graphics cards, in both DisplayPort (part number: D-1480-E4GB) and HDMI (part number: D-1450-E4GB) SKUs, will be available in Q1 2020.

So as discussed in an earlier thread: nothing ground breaking. Just another generation of cards for existing Matrox ecosystem.
And yeah, they're designed for long term 24/7 use, so the components are likely top notch.

They probably dont have the talent to pull off something like that anymore. The massive ocean of 'catch up' they would have to jump is pretty vast. It would be a huge surprise though if they did unveil even a mid-range gaming card.

Sadly even if they did. they'd struggle to get enough cards to meet demand with the current fabs being dominated by the regular players.

Still targeting video walls though. They might deliver the video over different cables, but they can still do HDMI on the display side courtesy of a small converter they make.
