MEN Micro Inc., a provider of embedded computing and input, output solutions, unveils the G214, a compact peripheral component interconnect serial multi-display controller board.
The G214 can be used for video surveillance in control rooms, simulators, professional audiovisual equipment and digital signage applications, and a single G214 can independently control up to six different high-resolution displays, says MEN Micro Inc.
In a compact PCI serial configuration, the unit can control up to seven multi-display boards with four ports each, totaling 28 different displays, for applications that require multiple screens networked on one system, the firm says.
In addition, the single displays can be merged into one large picture or deliver different contents, MEN Micro Inc. says. The new peripheral board uses AMD’s Radeon E6760 graphics processing unit operating at 600 MHz that also features a programmable 3D graphics engine supporting Microsoft DirectX 11. The graphics engine features a third generation unified video decoder that enables dual HD decoding of H.264, VC-1, MPEG4 and MPEG2 compressed video streams.
The G214 also contains four DisplayPort 1.2 interfaces that each has a maximum resolution of 4096x2560 at 60 Hz and a color depth of 24 bpp, MEN Micro Inc. says. It can also be equipped with a wider front panel that offers two additional DisplayPorts each with a resolution of 2560x1600, the company adds.
Six SIMD engines combined with 80 processing elements provide 480 shaders that deliver up to 576 gigaflops of peak single precision floating point performance, highly useful in ultrasound, radar and video imaging applications, the firm says. Power consumption is a maximum of 35 W.
