Userful Launches Ultra Low Cost Video Wall Controller
The $565 PC an ideal video wall controller for up to 9-screens and 4k content.
December 8th, 2016, Calgary, AB — Userful Corporation, an industry leader in centralized display controller software, recently unveiled a new option for its revolutionary video wall solution, which makes the already high-performing and cost-effective video wall controller even more affordable.
Userful software turns a standard PC into a high end video wall controller that delivers content over the network and can support one or more video walls simultaneously. Userful has now certified a $565 HP Prodesk PC that customers can use to run up to 9-screens in a single video wall configuration. The solution uses one zero client device per screen (priced at at $299 per display and up). Video walls with more screens still require a higher end PC.
Timothy Griffin, founder and CTO of Userful, describes the importance of this release, “We realized there is a growing need for video walls, but there are times people can’t afford the high price tag. With this new Userful release, we’ve cut the cost of the PC required to run Userful by over 60%, that’s a huge savings. People looking for ultra low cost video walls now have access to a high-performing solution from Userful, and can take a full advantage of the features that Userful brings—4k content, preset zone support, artistic layouts, etc—using a $565 PC. In the past people have been forced to buy lower cost video walls only to find that the chosen solution doesn’t meet their needs long-term. No one has that worry with Userful--we make it easy for customers to upgrade, so they can start with this entry level PC with the confidence Userful’s advanced features and scalability has them covered as their business grows and their requirements evolve.”
Userful’s AV-over-IP approach makes it easy for users to scale and upgrade their video walls. Companies can start with a $565 PC and as their requirements grow, so can their video walls, just replace the PC and use the same software and same zero clients and then deploy to 60 screens.
