LAS VEGAS--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Hiperwall, Inc., the leader in innovative, affordable video wall technology, is pleased to announce a new U.S. distribution agreement with Ingram Micro Inc. (NYSE: IM), the world’s largest technology distributor.
Under the new agreement, Hiperwall’s solution will be made available to Ingram Micro’s powerful U.S. distribution channel of IT solution providers, managed service providers and value added resellers. A high-performance low-cost video wall system, the ground-breaking Hiperwall software eliminates the need for complex, expensive hardware, making large scale visualization solutions available to a much broader range of companies and government agencies.
“Hiperwall’s innovative video wall system enables our channel partners to deliver large scale display solutions to a broad range of users that previously considered video walls to be out of reach and out of budget,” said Kevin Prewett, Vice President, Vendor Management for the Ingram Micro Digital Signage Division. “We are pleased to be named Hiperwall’s exclusive U.S. distribution partner and look forward to growing their reseller base and enabling our mutual channel partners to more effectively market, sell and support Hiperwall’s technology.”
The Hiperwall software solution is completely hardware agnostic and requires only ordinary PCs, ordinary monitors and an ordinary Ethernet network. The system displays still images up to 1GB resolution or larger, HD videos, live HD video streams and PC applications, turning a bank of monitors into an ultra-high resolution video wall. Multiple feeds can be displayed on the wall simultaneously and users can reposition and resize each feed as easily as moving and resizing windows on a PC desktop. Each feed can be scaled up for viewing on several monitors or the entire wall instantly depending upon the user’s discretion.
With its completely scalable architecture, the Hiperwall system is uniquely suited to meet the visual communication requirements of many diverse applications including digital signage, command and control rooms at government, military, utility and transportation installations, trading floors, medical/scientific imaging, aerial imaging, broadcast, fleet management and more.
“Ingram Micro’s dedicated Digital Signage Division and their proven track record as the world’s largest IT distributor makes them the best possible distribution partner for us,” said Hiperwall CEO Jeff Greenberg. “We are looking forward to working with Ingram Micro and their vast network of channel partners to deliver video wall solutions that are now accessible to a much broader cross-section of customers.”
The Hiperwall System will be demonstrated in the Ingram Micro booth #2013 at the Digital Signage Expo in Las Vegas tomorrow and Thursday at the show this week.
