Viewer Q & A:


Jim Bob Hunter asks, “‘Not blendable, not overlapable’, wha? Is this why you made a point of saying it’s for led/lcd? What are my options for >20mp overlapped dests?”

Answer: That would be a traditional (2) box link, which will give you a 40MP canvas. 


Julian Steinemann asks, “Where is the hdmi standof for lockable hdmi adaptors?”

Answer: Above the HDMI port. If you do not have the standoffs pre-installed, email to receive a “stand-off kit”  


William Noecker asks, “Can you do just 1 VPU and 1 output card to EX?”

Answer: Absolutely!   


Greg Allen asks, “how would a TCO card work if you need or want to combine auxes and dests. on it? ”

Answer: We do offer Dests and Auxes on the same card with the TCO, it does not have the same rules as traditional output cards where the Auxes must be assigned to the top two ports. You are free to assign the Auxs and Dest as you see fit, as long as you adhere to “4K per card” rule. If you have any other questions, please contact us at”
