If you caught this month’s Sound & Communication Magazine, then you probably saw their interesting piece on the Atlantis Space Shuttle Experience. Astute readers out there saw that this unique and exciting exhibit included more than a dozen SmartAVI fiber optic extenders! We are very excited to be included in the Atlantis Space Shuttle Experience and in the S&C piece. Be sure to read the story, and don’t forget to check out our site to learn more about our fiber optic extenders and, more specifically, our fiber optic DVI extenders.

Introducing the EZWall-Pro from SmartAVI – a highly flexible, multi-format video wall processor with a variety of supported inputs and unique display configurations. This user-friendly video wall controller supports inputs like HDMI, VGA, S-Video, Composite and Y/Pb/Pr, along with a built-in USB media player. With four single-link DVI outputs, the EZWall-Pro displays any input source at its highest resolution.
The control functions on the EZWall-Pro provide users with the flexibility to get the most out of their content and their screens. While many users will employ this unit for its “Wall Mode” (one image stretched across the four screens), others will find the alternate layout options to be a better fit for their needs. Users can manage these options in real time with the device’s intuitive On Screen Display (OSD) and front panel switches. Controlling the unit remotely via Ethernet, RS-232 and IR is supported, as well.
The SmartAVI team is proud to announce our latest product development, the MXWall – an HDMI matrix that fully integrates the power and control of a video wall processor and a digital signage controller all in a single device. With expandable configurations up to 32 HDMI inputs and 32 HDMI outputs, this new product delivers the highest level of video content management that has ever been put in one device.
With a drag-and-drop GUI and no additional software or drivers required, users can easily manage exactly where their content goes with the MXWall. In real time, users can create a multi-screen display of any of the 32 inputs in any section of the 32 screens. Users can route multiple 2×2, 3×3 or 4×4 configurations of various sources, or stretch a single image across all 32 screens with just a few clicks of the mouse. With an integrated digital signage player and a local hard drive, there’s virtually no limit to what this device can do!

The updated HDR-4×4-Pro by SmartAVI is the ideal solution to manage and distribute four HDMI sources to four HDMI displays with up to 325 feet of signal extension. With the HLX-500-RX receiver at each end point connected to the matrix by inexpensive Cat5e/6 cables, users can extend HDMI signals with 1080p resolution up to 325 feet. This reliable extension capability breaks the distance barriers that restrict HDMI cables.
The HDR-4×4-Pro offers flexibility and convenience in signal management, including a local HDMI output and control via the front panel switches, infrared and RS-232. This new device is overhauling the old challenges of HDMI matrix routers, and it’s easy to install and operate.
