  • Fan-less design that can be configured in video wall arrays in landscape or portrait orientation.
  • Standard built-in video wall scaling for arrays up to 10x10, mullion compensation, configuration presets and HDCP 2.2 loop through content protection.
  • Support for the latest 4K input connectivity standards, including both HDMI 2.0, DisplayPort 1.2 and OPS, the Open Pluggable Specification for add-in connectivity, compute and play-back devices.
