Montreal-based Matrox Graphics Inc. has developed a worldwide partnership with global embedded computing company Advantech, with offices in the U.S., Mexico and Brazil, to launch a new portfolio of video wall solutions.
“The development of video wall technology has changed basic lifestyles: digital signage, stage broadcasting, surveillance, factory automation, and transportation are all active behind the scenes,” says Franz Wei, vice-president, Advantech Embedded Systems Group. “Thanks to computer, network, and display technology advances, video wall performance continues to improve while total cost of ownership goes down, making video walls the fastest-growing area in the IT and digital electronics industries.
“Advantech is aware of this transformation and is collaborating with ecosystem partners to develop premium video wall solutions to fulfill the market demand.”
“This is an interesting and exciting partnership for both Matrox and Advantech as it opens up a myriad of solution concepts for the video wall market,” says Helgi Sigurdsson, Product Manager, Matrox Graphics Inc. “Not only will customers be able to purchase pre-configured solutions for simple deployments, but also conveniently choose from a variety of Matrox-validated Advantech motherboard/chassis plus Mura MPX board combinations to deliver customized controller systems geared to meet specific video wall requirements.”
The Matrox-validated product range includes industrial motherboards and chassis, as well as AVS series controllers that support up to two or five Matrox Mura MPX Series output/input video wall controller boards.
