    Our new release of the XtremeVision driver now supports: Portrait mode,
     Multi-Resolution and Overlapfacility. Furthermore provides an API for Banners and Transitions.  Wall Control and XtremeVision is now shipped with MultiRes Configuration Utility, which also providesthe facility to set resolution and rotation of the individual screens that are making up the videowall. This can be found on our website under the current drivers section called Multi-screenutilities and diagnostic tools.


    The XtremeVision driver supports image rotation of 90, 180 and 270 degrees allowing landscape displays to 90, 180 and 270 degrees, allowing landscape displays tobe rotated in to portrait orientation or used upside down.

    The XtremeVision driver supports heterogeneous display walls. The most common scenario is several groups of monitors that are run at different resolutions and/or refresh-rates. This feature allows a single controller to be used to create multiple smaller display walls e.g. across several rooms.


    The XtremeVision driver with minimum v6.2.3 of the XtremeRGB driver supports overlapping of XtremeVision output images. This allows display walls to be created with Edge-Blending projectors.


    The XtremeVision driver provides driver-level APIs for GPU assisted, frame-synchronized textbanners. There is a user-level API and sample application showing how screen areas can be"frozen" and their contents updates in the background. The new image can then be revealedusing a number of transition effects that are GPU accelerated and frame-synchronized.

    A Video/Data wall makes it possible to view all information on a virtually large high resolution display comprising of many "smaller" screens using Plasma/LCD/Projectors or normal CRT Monitors. The entire video/data wall will act as one large Windows desktop, hence applications can be launched and placed onto any single or combination of screens if not fully maximized onto all available screens. The source of the displayed objects can be data from your PC, e.g. PowerPoint Presentation, Flash, internet browser, Graphical Data/Charts, Share index's, Control room data etc.. 

  • The displayed objects can also be combined with external live video HDMI/DVI/VGA/SDI/Dual-Link or component using our XtremeRGB-Ex1, XtremeRGB-Ex2, XtremeRGB-Ex4, XtremeRGB-HDv2, XtremeSDI-2, XtremeDVI-DL1cards, for Composite or Svideo the XtremeRGB-Ex4+ or the XtremeRGB-Ex8 can be used. All XtremeRGB cards can be mixed & matched in any combination.

    The source video can be from:

    • Sky Set-Top box,
    • DVD, Camera, Web Cam,
    • Aerial Cartography,
    • Medical training/teaching,
    • Network Surveillance,
    • Telecommunications,
    • Video Conferencing,
    • VGA captured from other PC's and many more applications. 

    The EMS XtremeVision graphic cards provide high level multi-screen capabilities for complex data/video wall applications or multi-screen desktop applications. Using multiple XtremeVision cards it is possible to spread the Windows® desktop across many screens:

    XtremeVision, PCIe Video/Graphics Controller, 1920x1080@32bit, up to 40 screen support by using muliple cards. For Live Video insertion any of the XtremeRGB cards can be used for HDMI/DVI/VGA/Component or Composite/Svideo video sources.



    The XtremeVision is also compatible with our range of XtremeRGB range of video capture cards for systems requiring SD, HD, RGB or DVI video overlays. Video windows can be positioned and sized anywhere on the multi display.

    Using the Xtreme range of video capture cards combined with the XtremeVision, high end video wall systems can be constructed supporting up to 40 displays with 128 SD windows and 32 HD/RGB/DVI windows.

     The construction of the multi-screen system can be arranged in any rectangular format using multiple cards e.g., 1x4, 4x1, 3x3, 2x2, 6x2, 1x12, 1x8, 5x5 etc...
