2.1 Signal source


Signal source is the collective name of the signal input device for the display
wall system, such as the video play device (e.g., VCD and DVD players), the
device that can output RGB signal (e.g., computer), camera, etc. VWAS can
conveniently display the signals from these sources to the display wall.

2.1.1 Adding signal source

engine, which is the most important optical component in the system. To display actual physical configuration or the actual display needs, as shown in the
the external signal source on the display unit, you need to configure the following figure.
connection relation between the channels and the signal sources as well as the
looping relation between the units in the display wall. In addition, you need to
configure the processor address and the connection information of the channel
and the matrix or signal source. Only when such information is correctly
configured can other relevant operations be conducted, such as opening
windows and moving windows.

2.3.1 Adding display wall
