Hardware maker ViewSonic has announced a partnership with Canadian video wall software company Userful Corporation and has unveiled two new joint solutions.

The SW-014 and SW-015 Video Wall Deployment Solutions integrate technology from the latter.

Based in Calgary, AB, Userful’s video wall software allows for companies to use virtually any configuration of screens be they mounted straight or diagonally as well as in mosaic patterns.

ViewSonic’s new solutions paired with the vendor’s commercial displays are designed to do the same. 

The company claims that the joint solutions are first to be able to handle 6K content in real time over standard Ethernet networks. They can handle content from various sources, including various digital signage CMSs, live TV, multiple simultaneous HDMI and SDI inputs, RTSP, RDP, VNC, full screen web browser, desktop environments and a real-time live camera feed.

Furthermore, the solutions allow for up to 40 displays at 4K resolution by using a standard PC and up to 60 displays at 4K resolution using a high-end PC.

The SW-014 solution includes an optional failover server feature for system availability, and additional zero client media player.  Setup and configuration can be done remotely from a browser-based control panel. Meanwhile, the SW-015 includes the free-rotate feature that allows for artistic wall configurations. It also has support for multiple simultaneous sources in preset zones. 

SW-014 has an MSRP of $599.00 and SW-015 is at $999.00, both are available now.
