 MuraControl 3.0 for Windows
“This update gives video wall integrators and system builders more control over Mura MPX-based video wall content and layouts,” said Helgi Sigurdsson, product manager, Matrox Graphics. “The application lets user create, save and edit layouts offline or in real time so their content appears where and how they want it.”

Matrox Mura MPX Series capture and display boards let integrators build high-density video wall controller systems supporting custom video walls of almost any size. The boards feature universal input channel support for both digital and analog (DVI, RGB/VGA, Component, S-Video & Composite) video signals plus quality scaling, switching, and compositing of source content. Compatible Mura MPX analog video capture cards provide additional NTSC/PAL/SECAM input channel support and the Mura MPX-SDI board features two 3G SDI video inputs and two DVI outputs.

Additional new features in MuraControl 3.0 for Windows include support for analog input capture adjustments, options for “signal lost” events that let the user define what appears on an overlay window when the source signal is lost or not connected and options for input auto detect filtering that let the user specify a source type.

MuraControl 3.0 will be demonstrated on Matrox Mura-powered video walls for the first time at InfoComm 2014 (Las Vegas, June 18-20, booth N2247). Mura capabilities will also be showcased through transitions and effects applied to both recorded and live content using the latest Mura Network API—a platform that software developers and equipment manufacturers can use to build their own video wall control solutions for Mura-based video walls.
