This article shows how to set up a SpinetiX iBX440 player for a Video Wall. 

A few important things to remember when setting up a video wall configuration:

  • All screens have the standard 16:9 or 9:16 aspect ratio
  • All screens must have the same size
  • All screens must be in the same orientation
  • All screens must have the same resolution
  • All vertical bezel (+gap) corrections are uniform
  • All horizontal bezel (+gap) corrections are uniform
  • The mapping of outputs to screens is pre-determined (see below)
 
The process is easy and only takes a few minutes.  Let's get started. 

 

What you will need:

  • an iBX440 player and its power supply
  • 2-4 HDMI Cables
  • 2-4 screens mounted in one of the supported arrangements (see below)
  • a SpinetiX ARYA Premium or Enterprise account 
  • A tape measure or ruler.
