content on each screen

MAWi Spacewall

MAWi Spacewall utilizes a software kit that turns any Android device into powerful AV-over-IP gear for digital signage and video wall setups in a simple, cost-effective way.

At each site that has multiple screens, place a single PC or a virtual machine on which MAWi Client is installed.

The MAWi Client software sends the packets over the LAN to the MAWi Players who convert the display packets to HDMI and push that HDMI feed to the TVs over an HDMI cable.

The screens can be (i) set as individual displays for standard digital signage purposes, (ii) grouped to clone the same content, (iii) set up on a grid as standard video walls or (iv) set up as Creative video walls where screens of any size and scale are placed at any angle.

Advantages

  • Higher resolution – Supports 4K screens
  • Wifi-enabled – Supports wired or wireless Local Area Network.

Please note: wifi connection is not recommended for streaming videos or playing dynamic content.

show different content on each screen.

MAWi ZERO

MAWi ZERO uses HDMI over LAN zero client adapters as the endpoints that connect to the screens.

At each site that has multiple screens, place a single PC or a virtual machine on which MAWi Client is installed.

The MAWi Client software sends the packets over the LAN to the zero clients who convert the display packets to HDMI and push that HDMI feed to the TVs over an HDMI cable.

The screens can be (i) set as individual displays for standard digital signage purposes, (ii) grouped to clone the same content, (iii) set up on a grid as standard video walls or (iv) set up as Creative video walls where screens of any size and scale are placed at any angle.

Advantages

  • 100% Secure – No operating system at the endpoint
  • Zero operating system – Zero Maintenance.

Choose MAWi TC when you:

screens using thin clients.

MAWi TC

MAWi TC utilizes Thin Clients as the endpoints that connect to the screens.

Multiple thin clients can be installed in different sites, and connected to a Terminal Server that runs MAWi Client.

The MAWi dashboard allows you to control multiple RDP (Remote Desktop) sessions and to distribute any type of content on the screens.

Advantages

  • PC-less system – No need for a PC at each site.
  • Wifi, Audio, and 4K resolution are supported.

Choose MAWi Standalone when you:

– Require full interactivity with the content shown on the screens.

– Want to use 4K resolution and wireless connection per screen.

– Want to play the content locally and not streamed over the network

a management software to control the displayed content.

MAWi Standalone

MAWi Standalone is used when there is only a single TV per site, or when interactivity with the screens and different audio outputs are required per TV on the same site. MAWi Standalone supports 4K screens and can be connected over a wired or wireless Local Area Network.

Connect a Windows-based mini PC to the TV and run the MAWi Client software. 

Advantages

  • Interactivity is supported
  • Audio is supported
  • Higher resolution – Supports 4K screens
  • Wifi-enabled – Supports wired or wireless Local Area Network.

Streaming videos or playing dynamic content are recommended with MAWi Standalone because it’s played locally on the Mini PC and not over the network.

MAWi USB

MAWi USB uses USB to HDMI converter units to convert the display data it receives from the MAWi Client software onto HDMI. The adaptors connect over USB hub to the PC and via HDMI cables to the screens. 

Install MAWi Client on that PC to allow remote control of the content that is played on the video wall.

Place the PC near the video wall, connect the screens with the USB to HDMI adapters, and connect the adapters to the USB port in the PC.

Advantages

  • 100% Secure – No operating system at the endpoint
  • Zero operating system – Zero Maintenance.
  • A low-cost solution
