VuWall, a provider of video wall control and AV network management solutions, and Matrox Graphics Inc., a provider of capture, video and graphics processing, real-time encoding, KVM extension and switching, and AV-over-IP technologies, will partner at Global Security Exchange (GSX) 2019 conference and expo, Sept. 10-12, in Chicago. On InfraGard's Booth 1187, attendees will see state-of-the-art technology from the two companies integrated to deliver the best deployment and visualisation experiences inside command and control rooms. Simplifying user experience "As more and more organisations expand their facilities with command and control rooms, they require advanced solutions that streamline the configuration and deployment process, and simplify the user experience," said Paul Vander Plaetse, CEO at VuWall. VuWall will demonstrate its VuStation visualisation and control workstation with Matrox's Extio 3 "Matrox is a trusted provider of a broad range of advanced video wall, IP KVM extension, and streaming and recording technologies for security applications that are at the heart of VuWall's integrated solutions. GSX 2019 is a great opportunity to see how our respective technologies integrate, creating the most advanced, yet easy-to-manage command and control rooms." For the first time, VuWall will demonstrate its VuStation visualisation and control workstation with Matrox's Extio 3, a high-performance IP KVM extender, across four full HD displays. The KVM solution for personal video walls, VuStation, enables operators to seamlessly interact with multiple sources from a single KVM station, having all critical controls and information at their fingertips. Network management system Matrox Extio 3 works as either a point-to-point or networked KVM extender and creates a scalable and cost-effective KVM matrix switching environment using standard 1-Gigabit network switches. Designed for high-performance applications, Matrox Extio 3 Series IP KVM extenders deliver 4Kp60 4:4:4 or quad 1080p60 4:4:4 over a standard Gigabit Ethernet network (fiber optic or copper) at unprecedented low bitrates. The integrated solution delivers the best visualisation experience and the easiest AV network management system for the control room market. "Operators rely on our solutions to provide unmatched performance," said Samuel Recine, director of sales for the Americas and Asia Pacific at Matrox Graphics Inc. "When paired with VuWall's ecosystem, they can quickly visualise information for collaboration and improve communication and critical decision making, helping them keep pace with the 24/7 demands of any command and control environment."
Matrox Graphics Inc. is proud to announce that Meiko Electronics Co., Ltd. has selected Matrox Mura-brand video wall controller boards, Matrox Maevex-brand multi-channel encoders, and Matrox Extio-brand high-performance IP KVM extenders as core components of Meiko’s advanced control room and collaboration suite embodied in the new Meiko MVC-IP Series. A manufacturer of video wall systems in Japan, Meiko will demonstrate their full suite at Inter BEE 2018 (booth#: 2615) at Makuhari Messe in Chiba, Japan. Meiko demonstration highlights at the show include: 16K pixel-perfect, ultra-high definition display systems using Mura IPX output boards Security and surveillance video wall systems combining Mura IPX capture and IP encode/decode boards with Meiko’s advanced thumbnail display software Knowledge worker control room and collaboration systems combining Extio 3 high-performance IP KVM extenders with Meiko’s control software Digital signage distribution systems leveraging Maevex encoders and Mura IPX multi viewers Optimal performance at lowest bitrates Meiko’s leadership in control rooms and distributed environments is a testament to the scalability of Matrox’s products"“Meiko’s steady augmentation of their advanced video wall platforms to support all manner of IP sources, and leveraging IP for new applications of recording, collaboration, live streaming, and multi-user visualisation, is consistent with Matrox’s vision of removing all source, destination, and distance barriers for converged applications of AV and IT,” says Samuel Recine, director of sales – Americas and Asia Pacific at Matrox Graphics Inc. “Meiko’s leadership in control rooms and distributed environments such as digital signage is an elegant testament to the tremendous scalability of Matrox’s delicately balanced products that offer the pinnacle of performance and quality at the lowest bitrates.” Mura IPX video wall cards Mr. Goto, sales director of Meiko says, "The demand to switch to IP video signals is expanding. We think embedded systems using Matrox IP-based products like Mura IPX are matched to this demand. Mura IPX video wall cards are particularly effective for policing, road and river monitoring, stadiums, and all kinds of surveillance applications using multiple signals from IP cameras.” Mura IPX can drive large monitors, decoding both streams from IP cameras and baseband signals from image processing PCs" Mr. Goto continues, “Mura IPX can drive large monitors, decoding both streams from IP cameras and baseband signals from image processing PCs and other sources. At the same time, Mura IPX can encode for remote use, allowing information to be shared across multiple locations. Compared with conventional systems using multiple decoders, Mura IPX-based solutions deliver on ‘simple system construction,’ ‘cost reduction,’ and ‘short lead time.’ The combination of Matrox’s IPX and Meiko's software technologies will prove to be the best system, offering benefits to every user and system integrator.” Show Details: When: Wednesday November 14th through Friday November 16th, 2018 Where: Makuhari Messe, Chiba, Japan @ Meiko booth number 2615
