Matrox has announced that the Matrox QuadHead2Go Q155 multi-monitor controller card is now shipping. Powering up to four Full HD displays from a single HDMI video source – including HDCP devices – the QuadHead2Go Q155 card provides OEMs, system integrators and AV installers with an innovative tool to quickly and easily add more displays to video walls of any type and size.
Designed to integrate seamlessly into Matrox-based or third-party platforms, QuadHead2Go is ideal for a wide variety of video wall 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. Integrators can pair multiple QuadHead2Go units 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.
QuadHead2Go Q155 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. Via on-device control buttons, users can cycle through pre-set configurations to easily select and set the display layout, as well as the ability to fine-tune bezels to ensure a seamless image across displays. The QuadHead2Go Q155 controllers also include HDCP support to display content from HDCP-compliant devices.
Matrox PowerWall is an advanced, yet easy-to-use management software that allows users to customise configurations and control the display outputs independently, in either offline or online mode. The Matrox QuadHead2Go REST API is also available for integrators and developers looking to create custom functions and applications.
“Matrox QuadHead2Go Q155 controllers provide system integrators and AV professionals with a simple and innovative approach to build both artistic and rectangular video wall designs,” says Fadhl Al-Bayaty, business development manager, Matrox. “These controller devices—available in both card and appliance formats—can plug and play nicely with any source and platform, providing video wall professionals with a new level of design efficiency.”
