Matrox supplies 12-Monitor Video Wall to Australian Grand Prix
January 7, 2013 — Matrox Graphics supplied Matrox Mura MPX Series video wall controller boards to facilitate operations within a high-pressure Formula One Grand Prix race control room. The P.A. People, specializing in event communications, supplied the 2012 F1 Australian Grand Prix with a Matrox-validated Trenton TVC4401 video wall controller system that drove a 12-monitor installation. The system was powered by three Matrox Mura MPX-4/4 boards, each featuring four outputs and four inputs, along with two MPX-V16s, which capture up to 16 NTSC/PAL/SECAM video channels each. Matrox Mura MPX boards captured feeds from 10 universal inputs (including feeds tracking lap times, race position, etc.) and 32 track cameras, managing their display across a 6x2 array of Samsung 460UX monitors.
The Australian Grand Prix Corporation sought a high-performance video wall to monitor camera feeds and event logistics. Flexibility and cost effectiveness stood out as further differentiating factors in the The P.A. People’s decision, and in the end, they selected a Mura-based video wall controller because of how the boards enabled the flawless capture of race action from start to finish.
“In Mura MPX, we found exactly the type of powerful, yet cost-effective solution that we were looking for,” said The P.A. People managing director Chris Dodds. “We look forward to implementing an equally effective Mura MPX-driven solution at next year’s race!”
