There are several ways to set up a video wall, however, in this article, we’ll look at some of the solutions out there and how to set up Play Digital Signage for video walls in general.

Keep in mind the solutions below are just a few of the solutions on the market.

AMD Eyefinity

AMD Eyefinity is part of AMD’s graphics card driver software suite (Catalyst Control Center). In order to use Eyefinity, you’ll need AMD graphics cards, so keep this in mind when choosing a player device for your video wall. This software merges screens into a single unit on a driver level so that Windows sees all screens as a single unit. You do not need a separate player when choosing the AMD Eyefinity solution.

Nvidia Surround

Similar to AMD Eyefinity, Nvidia Surround is software for combining several displays into a single virtual display, see how to set it up.

Matrox Multi-monitor

Matrox has been doing video wall solutions for several years and in recent years great products for smaller menu boards and video walls have before affortable. Matrox QuadHead2Go is one of their out-of-the-box controllers that works great when building menu boards and video walls, the QuadHead2Go supports 4 screens connected through HDMI and makes it easy to set up a 1×4 or 2×2 menu board and video wall. In addition, the QuadHead2Go is also available in a PCIe version controller. Using the QuadHead2Go or any other similar multi-monitor controller you will need a separate player.

Daisy Chain

Most large manufacturers, like Samsung, LG, etc. offer Daisy Chain in their professional product line. Daisy Chain means you can connect multiple screens through the screen’s HDMI ports. When connected you can set up almost any amount of screens into a super large video wall. Depending on the brand, model, specification, etc. these screens support anything from 4 to unlimited screens. If Daisy Chain is the preferred solution you don’t need an additional controller, but you will be needing a separate player.

The software-based Video Wall for Digital Signage is something we’ve been seeing on the market more recently, but we have not had the chance to test out all the providers on the market.


Userfull and other providers providing software-based solutions are cloud-based. This means your video walls are centrally managed and all configuration is made online. As you can imagine it’s not possible to eliminate all the hardware when working with video walls, you need something to connect the screens and the cloud. In most cases you install a piece of software on the screen or add a small HDMI to the Internet bridge – In both cases what you get is a communication bridge between the cloud and the screen.

Can I simply use Extend mode?

NB! On Mac starting OSX Monterrey the window management changed and it’s no longer possible to launch the app over two windows, please consider another operating system if you look into doing the video wall in an extended mode.

In our Windows / Linux application settings, you can resize the window to span across 2 screens, so it is also possible this way. However, depending on the display brand, graphics drivers, and operating system it can’t be guaranteed that the application will restore to the correct position after a restart (thus we urge you to test several times that the application always launches overall extended monitors). Therefore using Eyefinity is more reliable as it bypasses Window management and scaling altogether.
