Linux-Based Video Wall

Our Linux video wall devices utilize, in almost all cases, an Nvidia NVS or Quadro series graphics adapters in order to provide the required high resolution playback, or multi-screen output.  Since the Linux operating system on our device is a proprietary image, almost all of the steps taken to configure the device will need to be done over the phone with an Industry Weapon Support Agent.

A time MUST be scheduled with an Agent for a video wall install using the following link: http://go.industryweapon.com/schedulesupport

When a time is scheduled, please ensure the below prerequisites are available to the on-site technician

REQUIRED :

  • Each relevant display will need to be plugged into the final ports on the the video wall device in question.
  • A keyboard and mouse will need to be able to be used with visibility of the screens at the same time.
  • SSH access via a WebEx, TeamViewer, or other shared-screen session will be required in order to initialize the Nvidia setup process.

Windows Nvidia Graphics Adapter

NOTE:  Any Windows device utilizing an Nvidia graphics adapter will need to ensure that the adapter in-use supports Mosaic display settings.

  • First, ensure that in the Windows display settings – accessible by right-clicking on the desktop and selecting Display settings – are appropriately detecting each distinct display at the proper resolution for each display.  Note that for mosaic configurations, each display will need to be set to Landscape initially, regardless of the intended final rotation of the display output.
  • Close the Display settings menu, and right click on the desktop once more.
  • Navigate to the Nvidia Control Panel
  • From the Nvidia Control Panel, select Set Up Mosaic underneath the Workstation tab.  This will open the mosaic configuration menu.
  • Select Identify Displays to ensure that the numbers for each display is noted down prior to configuration.
  • Once confirmed and noted, select Create new configuration.
  • Within this new setup menu, ensure that the Number of Displays is properly selected, as well as the topology (rows x columns) is properly met.  Here, we will also want to select the orientation option for the displays under the Orientation of displays field if an option aside from the default landscape is intended.
  • Select Next at the bottom of the page.
  • Ensure that all of the proper displays are selected for each of the available or in-use graphics adapters.  If they are not selected, simply tick the box next to the listing in order to activate it for the mosaic configuration.  While in this menu, ensure that the resolution per display and refresh rate matches appropriately, as well.
  • Select Next.
  • Drag the display icons to the grid on the bottom half of the screen labeled topology in the arrangement intended for final setup.  The numbers of each display within this menu corresponds with the numbers provided to each display from the identification step earlier in this process.
  • Select Apply and pend the completion of the setup process.  This can take some time, and the screen may go black for the duration.
  • Select Finish once complete.

Windows AMD Graphics Adapter

NOTE:  Any Windows device utilizing an AMD graphics adapter must utilize an adapter that support EyeFinity configuration.  If this option is not supported by the in-use adapter, the setup will fail.
 

  • First, ensure that in the Windows display settings – accessible by right-clicking on the desktop and selecting Display settings – are appropriately detecting each distinct display at the proper resolution for each display.NOTE:  For mosaic configurations, each display will need to be set to Landscape initially, regardless of the intended final rotation of the display output.
  • Right click on the desktop once more and select AMD Radeon Settings.
  • Select the Eyefinity tab.
  • Select Quick Setup.  This will automatically create a group based upon available displays.  Once the group has been created, and everything appears appropriately, close the menu and the setup is complete.  If further changes are required, proceed forward.
  • With this new group selected, a Arrange Displays should become available, which will allows us to move and adjust the order of the displays to best match the physical configuration of the displays.
  • Within Radeon Additional Settings there are options for creating standard, mixed dimension, and mixed alignment Eyefinity display groups. For more unique configurations.
  • Once all changes are complete, simply close the Eyefinity configuration menu, and setup will be complete.
