Overview

Video walls are becoming more and more popular in a large variety of verticals mainly as a result of new and innovative solutions that enable more capabilities in lower prices and higher accessibility.

Yet, the majority of organizations are still using controllers or Video Walls servers for their installations. Usually the results are disappointing: prices are still very high, centrally managing the units remains difficult and expansion of systems by end customers is impossible.

The first Windows-based Network Video Wall system

With Monitors AnyWhere’s Network Video Wall:

Use a standard PC to manage your Video Walls

You don't need to install any additional video cards on the host PC

No need for those splitters, cable extenders or any cumbersome infrastructure

Enjoy the freedom of placing the central PC anywhere within the local area network

Easily create eye catching video walls that runs Videos, Images, HTML5 content

and a variety of external sources

How does it work?

Monitors AnyWhere runs over a  HDMI over LAN  technology. HDMI over LAN zero clients replace graphic cards and connect a central computer to each TV Screen, through a local network.

Each zero client has its own unique IP address permitting Monitors AnyWhere to communicate directly between the PC and the displays – No additional hardware is needed on the central PC.

Using our dedicated software you can search the network and connect the HDMI over LAN component to the computer – just like adding physical display adaptors!

vw-architechture

Monitors Anywhere takes advantage of existing functionality within operating systems called Extended Desktop Mode, through which different content can be displayed simultaneously on multiple screens which are connected to only one computer.

The remote monitors – distributed throughout your establishment – are controlled and fed by the Monitors AnyWhere central control system.

For Video Walls we would recommend using a standard Core i7, at least 4th generation.

In addition, for better performance we would recommend adding a single HD graphic display adaptor from nVidia or AMD,

which will off-load the CPU’s graphic processor.
