Matrox announced the D-Series, a new family of multi-display graphics cards designed to power video walls in commercial and critical 24/7 environments. These new single-slot graphics cards drive up to four 4K@60Hz displays. They can be combined to output up to 16 4K monitors for high-density video walls in control rooms, enterprises, industries, government, military, ProAV, digital signage, security and more.
Leveraging a custom-built NVIDIA Quadro embedded GPU, D-Series delivers smooth video playback and graphics performance on up to four high-resolution HDMI or DisplayPort displays. OEMs, system integrators and AV installers can also combine up to four D-Series cards via board-to-board framelock cables, to drive up to sixteen synchronized 4K displays. Also, D-Series offers HDCP support for playback of protected audio and video content, as well as Microsoft DirectX 12, OpenGL 4.5 and OpenCL 1.2 support to run the latest professional applications.
D-Series works with Matrox’s complete video wall portfolio. Pair D-Series with Matrox Mura IPX capture and IP encode/decode cards for exceptional multi-channel 4K and Full HD capture, streaming, and recording support, and/or combine with Matrox QuadHead2Go multi-monitor controllers to power up to 64 1920×1080@60Hz displays from one system.
D-Series includes the Matrox PowerDesk desktop management software. Users can select from a variety of advanced tools — including stretched or independent desktops, clone mode, pivot, bezel management, edge overlap and more — to configure and customize multi-display setups. Additionally, the feature-rich Matrox MuraControl video wall management software provides users with an intuitive platform to manage video wall sources and layouts either locally or remotely and in real-time.
Matrox D-Series quad-monitor graphics cards, in both DisplayPort (part number: D-1480-E4GB) and HDMI (part number: D-1450-E4GB) SKUs, will be available in Q1 2020 and you can see them here.
