Today, video walls surround us. Multi-screen displays can be huge and have extraordinary resolution. Video walls are used more and more often in control rooms, conference halls and digital signage projects. In the past these video walls required expensive and rigid video display controller. But now the technologies have evolved and controllers can be replaced with commodity hardware powered by multiple monitor display software – Polywall. That software-based approach gives you flexibility, convenience and it is cost-effective as well. Hardware video sources like HDMI, DVI, etc can also be used without any problems. In this case video capture cards need to be installed into the video display wall controller (which is basically a computer). Polywall multiple monitor display software supports a wide variety of capture cards including Matrox, Datapath and others.

Another advantage of software-based approach to implementing a video wall is wide range of supported data sources. With Polywall you can simultaneously display video file, PowerPoint presentation, PDF document, web page, HDMI capture, live IP camera stream, BI dashboard and dozens of other data formats on one screen. And all of these data sources can be controlled with easy drag and drop operation from easy to use cross platform user interface. So, Polywall is truly opening a new age for video walls.

Polywall is a high-end software solution to control video walls and information displays for Control Rooms, Collaboration Rooms and Digital Signage projects. You can easily install Polywall to a video wall controller and show any information you want on the big screen.

Industry Standard Hardware

Userful video walls use standard, off-the-shelf server or PC hardware and network zero client devices connected over a standard gigabit Ethernet network. Single install setup turns a standard Intel Core i7 PC into a browser-managed video wall controller. Optionally add extra Nvidia video cards which are used by Userful software to offload video rendering thereby increasing the power of the PC and the number of screens and size of content supported.

Artistic and Grid Configurations

Arrange video walls in standard grid or artistic formats. Rotate individual displays to any angle to create a unique video wall. Add virtually unlimited content inputs from just about any source: Local CMS player, Live TV, RTSP, RDP, VNC, an interactive desktop or full screen browser or just about any content using one or more HDMI or SDI capture cards.

Configuration Flexibility

Preset zone support allows for the display of simultaneous content streams on specified displays within the video wall which can be changed on the fly as needed. With a single touch customers can instantly change the content playing on the video wall using a smart phone or tablet.

Exciting New Features

Artistic Mosaic Style Video Walls

Userful offers artistic or mosaic-style video walls that are stunning in appearance, work with any display, support 4k, 6k or 8k source content, and can be setup in a fraction of the time and cost of competitive solutions

Userful has 3 key advantages over competitive artistic or mosaic-style video wall solutions:

  • Use any display: From a commercial digital sign to a TV to a computer monitor. More importantly: customers can even mix and match different types and sizes of displays for a truly unique video wall.
  • Intermix different sizes and angles: Any individual screen can be rotated to any angle 360 degrees. While other solutions require the customer to rotate the entire video wall image, Userful allows rotation of individual displays giving true flexibility. And yes, it still supports 4k, 6k or even 8k source content.
  • A fraction the complexity, time and cost. Why? No proprietary hardware is required, just a PC, displays and zero client devices from the vendors you are already comfortable with. Pixel perfect calibration can be achieved in minutes via our revolutionary browser based interactive setup tool. Literally any content including real time content can be output to the display. Wondering just how much much you’ll save?

8k Source content delivered in real time over the Network

Userful was the first to support 4k source content delivered to the video wall in real time over the network, then 6k and now supports 8k source content on a high-end custom PC. All Userful deployments support upscaling to maximize pixel density and ensure that no matter the resolution of the source content, the video wall maximizes pixels per display.

40 or even 60 displays per video wall

Userful can now support 40 displays on a video wall using standard Core i7 PC or up to 60 displays on a video wall using a high-end, custom PC.
