Polywall installation usually consists of four types of nodes: Server, Visualizer, Worker and Agent. All nodes communicate over standard Ethernet network.
Operator or designer uses Polywall Designer to interact with the system. Polywall Designer is a web application that can be used on any computer that is connected to the same network as Polywall Server.
Polywall Server has special API to communicate with matrix switchers. It is required to use Crestron/AMX controller as a gateway to matrix switching equipment. However, installer can create his own implementation of hardware gateway as Polywall Server API is open.
One of the most simple deployment options is to install all Polywall software modules to one standalone video wall controller. This controller has to run Windows and have compatible graphic cards installed. For video walls up to 6 displays AMD Eyefinity or Nvidia cards are a good option. However, for larger video walls specialized graphic cards are recommended such as Datapath or Matrox. Polywall software might be installed on top of existing operating system or preloaded together with Windows Embedded image. Second option is preferable for manufacturers of standalone video wall controllers. So, in this case the only hardware required for the project is Windows-based video wall controller and displays.
