The Gefen EXT-DVI-VWC-242 is a DVI Video wall controller. The EXT-DVI-VWC-242 creates a 2x2 video wall for digital signage applications. Play back video at trade shows, control center, indoor lobby and other venues. The Gefen DVI Video Wall Controller outputs a single DVI source onto four displays at up to 1920x1200p60. The Controller accommodates many displays and bezel sizes thanks to its border control feature. A built-in on-screen display (OSD) facilitates operations. An IR remote is included.

The Gefen DVI Video Wall Controller creates a 2x2 video wall by default with a maximum resolution of 1920x1200p60 supported on each output. Many video wall configurations are selectable including full-screen enlargement, horizontal array, four identical displays, and more. Multiple input and output resolutions are supported. Each video quadrant is scaled and optimized. Automated control is supported with RS-232 communications.

How It Works
Connect the DVI Video Wall Controller to a DVI source (which could be a satellite tuner, a computer/player producing output for digital signage, or just a set-top box.) Connect up to four DVI-compliant displays to the unit. The input signal will be split and scaled to a maximum resolution of 1920x1200p60 on each DVI output. Use the buttons on the front panel or the included remote control to adjust settings.

*Note: HDCP-encoded sources are not supported.
