Matrox releases Quadhead2Go Q155
Matrox is now shipping its latest controller appliance for video walls. The QuadHead2Go Q155 is designed to drive four Full HD displays from a single 4K HDMI source—including HDCP-compliant devices – offering a plug-and-play approach to video wall designs. OEMs, system integrators, AV installers, and professional users can combine multiple QuadHead2Go Q155 multi-monitor controllers to deploy video walls for a variety of applications, including digital signage, control room, broadcast, and more.
QuadHead2Go Q155 controllers capture a single video signal—of up to 4Kp60 and 8Kx8K—for display across up to four screens, at resolutions up to 1920×1200 per output. The input content could be from any HDMI source—including digital signage players, media players, laptops, and more—while displays can be arranged in a variety of artistic configurations or classic rectangular 2×2, 2×1, 3×1, 4×1, 1×2, 1×3, or 1×4 setups. Multiple QuadHead2Go units can be paired to add more displays and/or combine with Matrox D-Series quad 4K graphics cards to power up to 64 1920x1080p60 monitors from one system.
Matrox’s latest product “guarantees” out-of-the-box plug and play when using the default 2×2 landscape configuration, without having to install software or connect to a video source. On-device buttons on the appliance enable users to cycle through pre-set configurations to easily select and set the display layout, as well as access a pre-saved image to set up display positions and fine-tune bezel-displaced pixels. The controllers also include High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) support for playback of protected audio and video content from HDCP-compliant devices. QuadHead2Go Q155 is also compatible with Matrox PowerWall™ software. The Matrox QuadHead2Go REST API is also available for integrators and developers looking to create custom functions and applications.
“The new Matrox QuadHead2Go Q155 controllers are a direct reflection of our ability to quickly and readily equip our customers with value-add tools and allow them to remain at the forefront of video wall innovation,” said Fadhl Al-Bayaty, business development manager, Matrox. “As video wall designs continue to evolve, it is our goal to simplify the migration with feature-rich, easy-to-integrate building blocks. QuadHead2Go Q155 is a perfect example of that, enabling customers to seamlessly and successfully deploy next-generation video walls.”
The Matrox QuadHead2Go Q155 appliance (part number: Q2G-H4K) is now shipping, while the QuadHead2Go Q155 card (part number: Q2G- H4K-C) will be available in Q2 2020.
