Matrox has announced that the Matrox QuadHead2Go Q155 multi-monitor controller appliance is now shipping. Featuring HDMI input support, the units are designed to drive four full HD displays from a single 4K HDMI source – including HDCP-compliant devices – offering a simple plug-and-play approach to video wall designs.
OEMs, system integrators, AV installers and professional users can also easily combine multiple QuadHead2Go Q155 multi-monitor controllers to deploy video walls of any type and size for a wide 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.
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.
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.
Meanwhile, 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.
“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,” says 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.
