Auckland Museum builds 16-monitor Matrox video wall

Auckland Museum has combined two Matrox M9188 PCI Express x16 octal-monitor graphics cards, in a bid to drive digital signage content across a four-by-four, 16-monitor video wall.

Supporting up to eight high-resolution monitors on a single card, the multi-display solution was configured with a second M9188 board within the same system to provide the museum with a canvas capable of promoting featured exhibitions and galleries on a grander scale.

The museum contracted Wallflower Advanced Digital Signage to deploy a captivating digital signage installation and Westcon Group NZ, the sole distributor for Matrox Graphics Inc in the country, are pleased with the in-house design expertise.

“Long product life-cycles, ease of deployment in corporate environments, and feature sets aimed at solving specific, real-world business issues are what set Matrox apart," says Mark Baker, Vendor Manager, Westcon Group NZ.

The Museum says it was looking to modernise its entrance's static information display with a multi-monitor backdrop that would instantly grab and hold the visitor's attention.

As a result, the solution allows system operators to manage the high-resolution imagery and video to produce higher-quality content.

"This stunning visual platform gives us the proper communication channel to uniquely bring the past to the present, while enhancing our visitors' overall museum experience for years to come." says Margi Mellsop, Marketing Manager, Auckland Museum.
