The multiviewer is a standard in the broadcast industry, but with its evolution and display appeal, it has become very popular in the digital signage industry. Multiviewer platforms today come in many sizes and options in viewing such as quad-split solutions to large-scale systems for routing and monitoring functions. When searching for the right multiviewer for your application, a few things to consider are the number of inputs and outputs, resolutions that are supported, layout modes and the ease of control.
