Review of Datapath x4 wall controller

The Datapath x4 is a stand alone display wall controller that accepts a standard single or dual-link DVI input and can display this across four output monitors. Each output can be driven as DVI or analogue RGB, and can represent an arbitrary crop region of the original input image.

There are a number of instances when we would use this product. Primarily we would use it to split up images to create videowalls for a reasonable budget. We can have one high-definition source coming in and four sources going out.

It’s great for really simple deployments. If you have three screens next to each other and you need an easy way to display content, just put an x4 between them. You can use your existing signage software and existing screens.

We also use them in combination with a specific media server (picturall octo) so we can see the four outputs from the x4 on as independent screens. The server sees the independent outputs as separate screens, that way you can build enormous multiscreens.
