Mall of the Emirates Installs 54-Monitor Video Wall Powered by Matrox Mura MPX
— Matrox video wall controller boards capture and display digital signage content on a massive video wall in one of Middle East’s largest shopping centers
MONTREAL, Oct. 10, 2013 – Matrox Graphics today announced the Mall of the Emirates, one of the largest in the Middle East, recently installed an immense 54-monitor digital signage video wall powered by Matrox Mura™ MPX Series controller boards. Installed by ALMOE AV Systems and integrated by a local distributor, the video wall comprises fifty-four 55″ Samsung monitors to form an attention-grabbing installation with stunning visuals announcing activities and promotions in the 520-store mall.
The combination of Mura MPX-4/2 and Mura MPX-4/0 boards that power the wall were installed in a Matrox-validated 4U system. The first PCI Express® x16 Gen2 board class to cost-effectively integrate multiple HD inputs and outputs on the same board, Mura MPX eliminates the need for separate solutions with a multi-functional design facilitating video capture, signal conversion, switching, scaling, and display.
Furthermore, Mura’s universal input support and HDCP compliance enable administrators to showcase copy-protected content from a variety of sources including digital cable, satellite set-top boxes, video streamers, and the Blu-ray Disc™ player currently being used with the wall.
“Shoppers can’t help but notice the video wall and enjoy all the massive, superior-quality visuals,” said Gareth Armstrong, contracts manager for ALMOE AV Systems. “Matrox Mura has provided the Mall of the Emirates with a huge boost to its digital signage as well as to the overall experience of going to the mall.”
