HMIs: Manage Video Walls Remotely with iPad App

Dec. 1, 2011
Montreal based Matrox Graphics Inc., maker of control room and personal human machine interface (HMI) hardware has introduced its first free iPad app, the MuraControl for iPad.

MuraControl transforms the iPad into a touch panel control interface capable of remotely managing input sources on any Matrox Mura MPX-powered video display wall.

MuraControl uses a network connection to interface between Mura MPX video wall controller boards and the iPad. It replicates the video wall on the tablet screen so that users can intuitively drag, drop, and tap on windows on the iPad to create unique media layouts on the video wall in real time. MuraControl users may also choose from a large number of previously saved layouts and switch instantly from one layout to another.

MuraControl is compatible with all video walls powered by Matrox Mura MPX boards. For example, by placing six Mura MPX boards into a validated system, users can create a video wall controller with up to 24 HD inputs and 24 HD outputs immediately and entirely manageable from an iPad using MuraControl.

In related news, Matrox Graphics Inc. ( and Trenton Systems ( announced three new Trenton video wall controllers have been tested and validated for use with Matrox Mura MPX display wall controller boards.
