Advantech motherboards, chassis, and controllers validated with Mura display wall controller boards enable worldwide OEMs, system integrators, resellers, and installers to easily deploy custom video walls Montreal, Canada, November 20, 2012 — Matrox Graphics Inc. today announced a worldwide partnership with global embedded computing leader Advantech to launch a new portfolio of video wall solutions. 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. The AVS series controllers will drive up to 8 HD outputs/8 HD inputs and 20 HD outputs/20 HD inputs respectively, providing OEMs, system integrators, resellers, and installers with the opportunity to build world-class, high-impact video walls for various applications including presentation, signage, control rooms, security & surveillance, and public and private venues. The newly-developed series of Advantech motherboards, chassis, and two (AVS-240 and AVS-290) or five (AVS-540) Mura MPX board-based systems encourage versatile video wall system development. This is due to Mura’s single-slot, 4-output/4-input board design, as well as its PCI Express® (PCIe) x16 Gen2 architecture which leverages 64 Gbit/sec duplex data transfer for uncompromising Full HD performance. Mura MPX boards are also multi-functional, equipped to capture, scale, position, and display a variety of input sources—including High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) compliant devices—across an array of monitors, projectors, cubes, and other outputs. “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. 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,” said Franz Wei, Vice President of Advantech Embedded Systems Group. “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.” Advantech key features: • Optimized BIOS supports multiple Mura MPX cards • Data bus architecture optimized for zero-latency video data switching • Wide operating temperature range provides high reliability in the field • High-efficiency power solution meets multiple Mura MPX power requirements • Video wall can be remotely monitored and controlled Availability Advantech motherboards, chassis, and AVS-240 and AVS-290 video wall controllers are now available, while the AVS-540 system will be available in Q1 2013.
