openGear ROI Video Wall Workflow

It is also possible to expand output options and create a large, synchronized video wall display. The workflow diagram shows 9 x OG-ROI-HDMI utilized in a rackframe to produce a video wall of 9 SDI monitors. Control over each OG-ROI-HDMI is provided via ethernet to the DashBoard. Each computer source is connected to an OG-ROI-HDMI input with the region of interest output via SDI. Simple controls and connectivity for the OG-ROI-HDMI can be used to create sophisticated and complex video wall presentations.

openGear ROI Window Wall Workflow

You're able to easily create highly effective and engaging displays by using additional OG-ROI-HDMI openGear converters. By utilizing three OG-ROI-HDMI openGear converters in the appropriate rackframe you can feed three display monitors side by side, each rotated to portrait mode. By using the HDMI pass through of the OG-ROI-HDMI, the HDMI routed image is in sync, with each OG-ROI-HDMI providing the necessary region of interest output via SDI. Settings for each of the OG-ROI-HDMI openGear converters is provided via ethernet control through an ethernet switch. The result is a visually exciting and creative way to feed display content.
