What is a Video Wall Controller?
A video wall, is a canvas made up of a large number of screens that act together to form a single canvas. A video wall controller is a device that takes in large amounts of video from various external and internal locations, which then allows users to place those videos anywhere on video wall canvas.
Videos and images that you want to add to the wall are known as “sources”. Content sources can be captured using dedicated capture or decoding cards or be made available on a local hard drive. These sources can then be placed across single or multiple screens, and the video wall controller handles the required splitting, cropping and drawing of the content in the correct place. Some example source types are; operator workstations, production PCs, set top boxes, media players, IP cameras, pre-recoded videos and webpages.
For any video wall installation, the video wall processor is pivotal and unifies the display outputs to create a single output canvas. The user has complete control of how and when the source content is displayed.
