NVidia Mosaic Setup on Windows-Based Video Walls

Bluescape users have multiple options when implementing tiled video walls. You can use:

  • The daisy chain function built into video wall displays
  • DataPath FX4 or similar video wall processor to convert high-resolution signals
  • Implement direct 1-1 display to graphics card outputs

In order to preserve a continuous desktop that responds to accurate touch events, users will need to create a single Windows desktop from multiple displays.

In NVidia, this is called “Mosaic". Mosaic takes a number of displays identified by a PC and creates a map based on connection points. It is up to the user to then arrange the displays in an order that follows the logical installation.

Beyond these steps, the Bluescape wall application may display signs of video tearing in the field. An example of this is shown below:

Evidence of tearing is represented by moving black bands across the display. Note: This may not be viewable when viewing the Windows desktop, or when the Bluescape application is in the background.

To resolve this issue, open the Nvidia settings control panel and select “Manage 3D Settings”. From here, scroll to the “Vertical Sync” Feature and select “Adaptive” from the drop-down menu.

This setting may reduce the overall frame rate of the video wall, however, it will resolve distracting tearing artifacts.
