Matrox® Graphics Inc. today announced that Munich Airport has leveraged Matrox M-Series multi-display graphics cards to power a 72-monitor flight information display system (FIDS). Recommended and installed by local system integrator InoNet, Matrox M9148 quad-monitor and M9188 octal-monitor boards reliably drive high-definition flight and departure information on a 19-meter-wide by 2.30-meter-high FIDS video wall—one of the largest of its kind.
To run the unique installation, InoNet uses an M9148 and M9188 board pairing within six of their Magnius-2 video wall controller systems. Each workstation’s 12 displays have been combined to form an 18×4 matrix, outputting an astonishing 72 NEC X463UN displays at individual resolutions of 1920×1080. With the NEC display’s slim 5.7mm bezel design, the resulting video wall enables a nearly 180° viewing platform on which all 72 displays are completely visible from any front-viewing position. A configured fail-safe mechanism on the displays also ensures continuous operation with minimal downtime and IT intervention.
“The aim of the installation was to present razor-sharp content across the entire display. There is no scaling via daisy chaining on the 72 displays, where each monitor is individually supplied with Full HD content,” said Susanne Gomez, Key Account Manager Digital Signage at InoNet. “Using Matrox M-Series, we were able to realise the requirements quickly and easily.”
