Matrox announces an expanded collaboration with long-term partner Xilinx to integrate advanced processing functionality into its Matrox QuadHead2Go multi-monitor controller product line. Leveraging a dedicated Xilinx FPGA to accelerate all processing operations, Matrox QuadHead2Go cards and appliances enable customers with a powerful and comprehensive feature set—including capture, scaling, cropping, rotating, and more—to build highly-customized, easy-to-deploy video wall designs.
QuadHead2Go Q185 DisplayPort input and QuadHead2Go Q155 HDMI input controllers capture a single video signal—of up to 4Kp60 and 8Kx8K—for display across up to four screens, at resolutions up to 1920×1200 per output. The input content could be from any source, while displays can be arranged in a variety of artistic configurations or classic rectangular 2×2, 2×1, 3×1, 4×1, 1×2, 1×3, or 1×4 setups. Each output can be further personalized to have its own resolution, be independently rotated, cropped, upscaled, downscaled, and positioned anywhere. In addition, QuadHead2Go units can be used together to easily build ultra-large video walls under any operating system, including Microsoft Windows 10 and Linux.
