Matrox powers giant video wall at UAE mall
Dubai, October 13, 2013
Matrox Graphics has announced the installation of an immense 54-monitor digital signage video wall, one of the largest in the Middle East, at the Mall of the Emirates, powered by its Mura MPX Series controller boards.
Installed by Almoe AV Systems and integrated by a local distributor, the video wall comprises fifty-four 55" Samsung monitors to form an attention-grabbing installation with stunning visuals announcing activities and promotions in the 520-store mall, said a company statement.
The combination of Mura MPX-4/2 and MPX-4/0 boards that power the wall were installed in a Matrox-validated 4U system.
The first PCI Express x16 Gen2 board class to cost-effectively integrate multiple HD inputs and outputs on the same board, Mura MPX eliminates the need for separate solutions with a multi-functional design facilitating video capture, signal conversion, switching, scaling, and display.
Furthermore, Mura's universal input support and HDCP compliance enable administrators to showcase copy-protected content from a variety of sources including digital cable, satellite set-top boxes, video streamers, and the Blu-ray Disc player currently being used with the wall.
"Shoppers can't help but notice the video wall and enjoy all the massive, superior-quality visuals," said Gareth Armstrong, contracts manager for Almoe AV Systems.
"Matrox Mura has provided the Mall of the Emirates with a huge boost to its digital signage as well as to the overall experience of going to the mall," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
