New Matrox MuraControl for Windows Software Simplifies Management of Mura MPX-Powered Video Walls

Now available as a free 21-day trial download, this feature-rich application equips professional AV installers and system integrators with another easy-to-use control option

Montreal, Canada, November 28, 2012 — Matrox Graphics Inc. today announced Matrox MuraControl™ for Windows® video wall management software to configure, operate, and otherwise take full advantage of video walls powered by Matrox Mura™ MPX Series output/input boards. Running either locally or remotely over standard TCP/IP networks, the highly-intuitive, user-friendly application consists of window and source controls that let users create, save, and edit layouts (presets) offline or in real time. This provides enhanced customization of where and how content appears on Mura MPX video wall installations displaying up to 56 HD inputs across up to 56 HD outputs. Designed exclusively for Mura MPX hardware, the software release also enables professional AV installers and system integrators to conveniently deliver more complete systems for a wide range of market applications such as presentation, signage, control rooms, security & surveillance, and small to medium-sized public or private venues.

MuraControl for Windows is a full-featured video wall management suite with robust window management controls to intuitively position, scale, clone, crop, add overlay text, show picture-in-picture, and adjust z-ordering. Source management tools, meanwhile, allow you to rename inputs, apply multiple deinterlacing filters, adjust colour parameters, rotate and crop sources, and add source text overlays. The software also contains default settings to facilitate a trouble-free setup experience for the end user. MuraControl comes with a permanent, single-seat software license via a USB dongle, and is fully compatible with Microsoft® Windows 7, Windows XP, and Server® 2008 R2.

"Our Mura MPX boards are universally recognised for radically reinventing video wall management with a single output/input board design that includes HDCP support," said Helgi Sigurdsson, Product Manager, Matrox Graphics Inc. "MuraControl for Windows now further simplifies the system build-and-deploy process for integrators, installers, and OEMs who can leverage both video wall controller boards and software from Matrox, and consequently benefit from seamless configuration, optimal performance, and superior customer service support."

MuraControl for Windows Key Features: • Create, save, name, copy, and delete layouts (presets) offline or in real time • Position, re-size, clone, crop, and label windows anywhere on the wall • Rename, crop, rotate (90°, 180°, and 270°), and apply colour, text overlay, and deinterlacing filters to source content • Customise gridlines and window snap behaviour to the lines, other windows, and/or physical displays

Availability The new Matrox MuraControl for Windows software license is now available for purchase, while the free 21-day trial version is available for download from the Matrox website. To learn more, visit or contact
