Lindy has expanded its Pro AV portfolio with a 4K-capable flexible video wall scaler. Able to split, scale and output UHD signals across regular and irregular video wall installations made up of different displays.

The video wall scaler has 4 HDMI outputs for four video wall displays, and an additional HDMI loop output. There’s also an HDMI, DP and DVI input. Supported resolutions include 3840x2160@30Hz, 4K1K 3840x1080@60Hz and Full HD 1920x1080@60Hz.

Using several cascaded Scalers, integrators can create video walls of up to 6x6 or 10x4. Bezel correction is available to hide part of the image behind the display bezel, so that it appears to be part of the content. Other features include a zoom, effectively cutting off unused sections of the input video, or downsizing the image to display on a part of the video wall. Pictures can also be rotated.

“To understand how the Flexible Video Wall Scaler works, it’s best to think of several differently sized white projection screens placed side by side. An image is subsequently projected over all the screens from a sufficient distance” explains Owen Haigh, Head of Global Product Management at Lindy. “No matter how the screens are arranged, or if there is still a gap between them or if a few screens are larger or smaller, when I project an image onto them, I see it everywhere where a screen is present, and the rest of the image is cut off. In terms of results, the Flexible Video Wall Scaler does exactly the same thing – only with displays instead of projection screens. To achieve this, the Scaler must know the arrangement, size, orientation, position and bezel width of the used display; it then generates a separate signal for each connected display containing the section of the image that should be shown on each display.”

The Lindy Flexible Video Wall Scaler has a retail price of £1,800.
