Key Digital Introduces Video Wall Processor


The new Key Digital KD-VW4x4PRO is designed to bring video wall capabilities to all displays and digital signage. This processor supports seamless switching and features eight different user-selectable video wall modes with many horizontal and vertical layouts. These modes include: four horizontal: 1×4 rotated, 1×4, 1×3 and two sets of 1×2; and three vertical: 4×1, 3×1, two sets of 2×1 and typical 2×2 setup.

The KD-VW4x4Pro supports seamless 4×4 matrix switching, and analog to digital conversion of incoming VGA with analog audio signals. Four HDMI/VGA inputs accept digital/analog video and audio from computers, media players, and other sources. With the eight onboard video wall processing modes, the four outputs can be configured to display video from a single input over a four-output video wall. Fitting into a wide variety of professional video installation and live event needs, this device is also ideal for retail, digital signage, conferencing applications, classrooms, home-theater and bar/restaurant needs.

Additionally the KD-VW4x4Pro has adjustments that can be made, such as bezel compensation, to fine-tune the video wall to fit different screen types. Device control is achieved through a couple of options including the front panel buttons, included wireless IR remote control or via software through RS232 and Ethernet.
