Portwell: 19” system targets video wall applications


Portwell announces its high performance 19” System RS4U-MTRX-1101. The RS4U-MTRX-1101 is based on a specially designed 19” Rack – cooled by three fans. The PICMG 1.3 backplane and a full-size single-board-computer provide the computing power and huge extension options, with up to 10 slots PCIe x16. In order to meet highest performance and reliability demand, the system is equipped with a redundant 950Watt power supply, allowing 24/7 operation.

Built with application-centric design, the RS4U-MTRX-1101 is pre-configured for being populated with Matrox graphics cards from the MPX and IPX series. The high-performance PCI Express switch on the backplane, collaborating with the ROBO-8113VG2AR SBC., enable the RS4U-MTRX-1101 to provide full PCIe x16 to all ten extension slots.

The ROBO-8113VG2AR family of PICMG 1.3 SBCs offers a choice of the latest 7th and 6th Generation Intel Core i7, i5 and i3 processors or the Intel Xeon Processor E3-1200 v5 family. The Intel Xeon processors include Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 and Intel Hyper-Threading Technology to deliver improved performance and processing efficiency. The ROBO-8113 supports Intel C236 and Q170 chipsets to provide up to 32GB DDR4 system memory with ECC or non-ECC option.

With huge Video Wall installations – up to 40 displays in mind – the RS4U-MTRX-1101 was designed for high computing performance with huge data throughput and combined high-reliability. Pre-installed with Windows 10 or Windows 7 (if Matrox IPX need to be supported) the RS4U-MTRX-1101 just needs to be populated with the required combination of Matrox MPX or IPX cards to make it the perfect fit for the customers video wall installation – allowing the system integrator to focus on the application itself and the content to be streamed by the system. It helps minimize development effort and time spent on initial designs, including validation & verification.
