MONTREAL, May 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Matrox Graphics Inc. today announced that Dentsu, one of the world's largest advertising agencies, used the Matrox M9188 PCIe x16 multi-display octal graphics card to drive a six-monitor, portrait-oriented digital signage installation in Tokyo Midtown. The Matrox M9188 board was the only solution to meet their strict performance and multi-display criteria, and today shoppers, residents, and passers-by benefit from a truly unique art and advertising platform at resolutions of 1080x1920 per display.
Dentsu looked to build Japan's first Digital Art Board (DAB), a revolutionary digital signage display designed to be part art exhibit, part advertising tool. Hiring Content Interface Corporation (CIC) to manage the installation, the interactive digital multimedia system developer chose the Matrox M9188 graphics card to serve as the display engine for the DAB based on its multi-display flexibility and stability. Supporting six 60" high resolution folding screen monitors in portrait mode, the M9188 flawlessly displays both images and video content across an astonishing 6480x1920 desktop. Unlike other graphic cards tested, the Matrox M9188 also offered the Matrox PowerDesk software suite that delivers advanced desktop management features including Bezel Management, which ensures the seamless display of images across multiple monitors.
"Audiences are thoroughly impressed by the quality and clarity of the DAB," comments Hao Le, President, Content Interface Corporation. "Finding a graphics card that could display high-quality video across six super-high resolution displays in portrait mode was critical to the success of this project. The Matrox M9188 met all our requirements where others failed."
