Matrox starts shipping QuadHead2Go multi-monitor controllers
Matrox® Graphics Inc. has announced that the Matrox QuadHead2Go™ multi-monitor controllers are now shipping. Available in appliance and PCI Express® card form factors, QuadHead2Go units are capable of driving four displays from one signal.
QuadHead2Go 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 source—including professional graphics cards and integrated GPUs, digital signage players, laptops, and more—while displays can be arranged in classic rectangular 2×2, 2×1, 3×1, 4×1, 1×2, 1×3, or 1×4 setups, or a variety of other artistic configurations. Multiple QuadHead2Go units can be used together to build ultra-large video walls under operating system such as Microsoft® Windows® 10 or Linux®.
QuadHead2Go “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. OEMs, system integrators, and AV installers can use the included Matrox PowerWall™ software to configure their video walls.
“Matrox QuadHead2Go is a perfect example of how Matrox continues to innovate and equip OEMs, system installers, and professional users worldwide with leading-edge capabilities while simplifying the deployment process,” said Fadhl Al-Bayaty, business development manager, Matrox Graphics Inc. “Packaged in small-form-factor, low-power, and user-friendly appliance and card options, QuadHead2Go ensures seamless and imaginative video wall designs for a variety of applications including digital signage, control rooms, broadcast, houses of worship, and more.”
Matrox QuadHead2Go will be in action at ISR 2019 (booth S-43A), I/ITSEC 2019 (booth 787), and ISE 2020 (booth 11-D120).
