Key Digital KD-VW4x4ProK 4K UHD Video Wall Processor
Key Digital is now shipping its KD-VW4x4ProK 4K UHD video wall processor . Engineered to cost-effectively deliver sophisticated video wall displays using consumer panels and monitors , the processor and matrix switcher is an easily-implemented , all-in-one solution featuring four HDMI inputs and four HDMI outputs plus four mirrored UHDoTP ( Ultra High Definition over Twisted Pair ) outputs providing signal extension to four included KD-EXMLVRx UHDoTP receivers .
The KD-VW4x4ProK has functionality that optimizes its use with consumer video displays and televisions . Its Panel Flip feature rotates the image 180 degrees on the desired outputs , enabling the top row of monitors to be installed upside down , co-joining the often-narrower display frame sides and tops to minimize bezel visibility . Bezel Compensation allows the image to be extended off screen to create fluid screen transitions between co-joined monitors . Five supported video wall layouts ( 2x2 , 4x1 , 3x1 , two sets of 2x1 , and 1x4 ) make the KD-VW4x- 4ProK ideal for building budget-friendly video walls for any application . 4K / UHD content up to 3840 x 21640p 4:2:0 at 60fps is supported , with native down-conversion enabling integration with legacy 720p and 1080p displays .
