Auckland Museum’s new 16-monitor video wall
Auckland Museum has built a captivating 16-monitor video wall to promote its exhibits and attractions.
Auckland Museum 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.
It contracted Wallflower Advanced Digital Signage to deploy a digital signage installation and the company combined two Matrox M9188 PCI Express x16 octal-monitor graphics cards to cost effectively drive digital signage content across the four-by-four, 16-monitor video wall. The M9188 multi-display solution supports up to eight high-resolution monitors and was configured with a second M9188 board within the same system to provide the museum with an expansive canvas — at resolutions of 1920X1080 per display — to dynamically promote featured exhibitions and galleries.
The easy-to-use solution allows system operators to intuitively manage the high-resolution imagery and video to effectively engage, inform and entertain visitors with crisp, clear and dynamic content.
