What third party part do you guys use to accomplish "video tiling" with Control4?

Client requested a 2x2 video wall at a job where we are using Control4 for all AV distribution and peripherals. We do not have experience accomplishing this within Control4.

Is there a component or programming method you would suggest that would work best?

What pitfalls, if any, should we be aware of when installing a video wall with Control4 or in general?

Additionally, should we dedicate sources used on this video wall or leech off existing distributed sources?

Let me know if you need clarification. Thank you!

Do you need a 2x2 video wall with 4 displays, or do you need to tile 2x2 images on one display?

Either way, Just Add Power has what you need, including hardware, drivers, and special video wall & tiling icons for the C4 GUI. I would recommend purchasing from Blackwire Designs, as they will even configure the hardware including the managed network switch, as J+P is a network-based distribution system.

Would agree J+P for this, especially for tiling. I looked to SAVI and AVProEdge for solutions as well. At the end of the day, the panels from Samsung and LG were too salty for our proposal, especially when combined with the back end hardware. The panels can essentially act as one display for picture and control so no additional “rooms” would need to be used for C4. Also, Blackwire Designs has a stellar driver for the J+P tiler.

Could do Videostorm as well.

C4 and good videowall experience don't go well together, IMO.

Control is way too clunky. Yes, experience buttons can change your videowall layouts, etc., but trying to control all the sources is a PITA.

Really think hard about the application. 2x2 video walls are rarely cost effective solutions.

Just because someone says they want something doesnt mean its a good idea.

Consider Planar. We have installed a number of Planar video walls - closed-loop system with panels and processor(s). Easy to control with IR or 232. Not the cheapest but we've been very happy with them:
