Think you can handle up to 250 video displays at once? If you're Samsung,
you're leaning "yes." Thanks to an all new Video Wall system introduced
this week, up to 250 panels can be controlled by a single server, thus
creating a "virtual monitor" of sorts that can display an obviously
wide variety of material in real time. The Ultra-Definition Display
(UD) System is described as an interactive video wall solution that is
currently being integrated into the firm's UX and UT series displays.

J.H.
Kim, President, Information Technology Division, Samsung Electronics
America, stated the following: "As the North American leader of Large
Format Professional Displays , we are expanding our product selection
to include this innovative new video wall solution that provides the
ability to display and manage real-time content from multiple sources,
stimulating more collaboration and providing enhanced command and
control capabilities. Our UD System effectively addresses the
requirements of vital applications in government and law enforcement
agencies that need to make critical decisions based on comprehensive,
accurate information from multiple sources."







With its ability to display information that originates from up to 125 networked PCs, the UD system creates a visualization venue from a video wall of Samsung UD
Series monitors. Through conversational control and administration,
information can be shared over the network and presented from remote
locations. Video streams sent fromwebcams, security cameras and video files can also be displayed directly on the video wall.  Furthermore, the UD solution can reposition and resize images up to 1GB or larger in real time, not to mention support Giga Pixel images. Too bad you can't afford one of these things to host your next Halo party on, huh?

Pop quiz, hotshot: You have a video wall display of 25 x 10 monitors with a resolution of 48000x10800. What's the first picture you bring up?

Surprise, all your pictures are in 1920x1080 resolution, each pixel is now a giant clearly visible rectangle.

What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?

Heheh... yeah, just had to be a killjoy. :p

At least we found a non-gaming use for the memory on the newer video cards.
