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 wallone 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 workstations 12 displays have been combined to form an 18x4 matrix,
outputting an astonishing 72 NEC X463UN displays at individual
resolutions of 1920x1080. With the NEC displays 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.
