Userful raises the bar for video walls: 8k source content in real time over the network using just 1 PC

After launching the first video wall controller to deliver 4k source content over the network in real time, Userful increases scalability with support for 8k source content and support for 60fps, all from just 1 PC

May 24th , 2016, Calgary, AB   Userful Corporation, an industry leader in centralized display controller software, announces the release of Userful v8.6, software that turns a standard PC into a video wall controller capable of supporting 60fps video as well as up to 8k video to one or more video walls over the network in real time. 

Userful’s new release has big scalability improvements that have made video wall synchronization better for even the most demanding content and enable the solution to support up to three simultaneous 4k streams in real time from a single PC each delivered to a different video wall over a standard Ethernet network. Userful’s solution is unique in its ability to support both large video walls and large content over the network from just one computer.

Timothy Griffin, founder and CTO of Userful, describes the importance of this new release, “Userful v8.6 pushes the boundaries of what a video wall solution is capable of, but more importantly, by staying affordable, users can now have even more stunning video walls and not break the bank. This is still the simple and flexible solution that’s made it so popular, but the new release offers a big jump in scalability by supporting more displays and larger content. It enables very large multi-source video walls to be deployed with simplicity at a cost effective price point.”

Userful’s software turns a standard PC into a browser-managed video wall controller that adds value beyond simply playing a single piece of content across a grid of displays.  It makes it easy for just about anyone to deploy stunning video walls that are scalable and offer multizone, multisource flexibility, as well as angled rotations for a one of a kind artistic/mosaic-style deployments.
