MDX Powerwall Display

The MDX Powerwall is a 64 million pixel display that I have designed and build at Middlesex University. It is constructed of 18 Dell 27″ monitors, each with a resolution of 2560×1440, giving a total of 1536×4320. It is powered by a single PC thanks to three AMD Radeon 6870 Eyefinity graphics cards.

In the image below, you’re actually looking at three Firefox windows running in full screen mode. I’ve synchronised the instances using some Javascript and a Java Web Servlet. The imagery is from Google, and I’m in the process of overlaying different datasets such as live tweets or flight data.
