Xi Graphics' Accelerated-X SW has, in the last fifteen years, earned a reputation as the fastest, most stable X Window System X servers and graphics drivers available. The HX Series is designed for wall display systems with a lot of monitor real estate in commercial, industrial, and government installations.
Large Systems Without Hassle
One new customer of the HX Series had spent over a year of frustration trying to get a nine-monitor system running with one video window using Xorg SW. Two weeks after contacting us, he was commissioning a 9-monitor system with four video windows and starting the installation of a second system.
NEW: HX on AIX
Using the GXT-135P IBM cards in Power5 systems, a major international company is using the HX Series for systems to monitor power distribution. Although we haven't tested it, the GXT-145P (a PCIe version of the 135P) should also work. Contact us if you have graphics requirements on your IBM Power Series not being satisfied by IBM or others.
Free Maintenance Support
Xi Graphics has provided free maintenance support, as well as free support for most kernels and platform updates, and has done so for the entire existence of the Company - over fifteen years. What this means to the user, is that Xi Graphics is cardful to only ship very good,high-quality software.
Free Downloadable Demos
Various standard system configurations are available - as Series "Editions" - for download and testing on your target systems. If a particular Edition satisfies your application needs, it may be licensed on-line with a credit card. A list of public demos available is further down the page, with links.
One or More "Stretched Desktops" (SLSs)
Often large Wall Display systems utilize a single logical screen (SLS) to "stretch" a desktop across some or all monitors/projectors. With the HX Series, there can be one or morer stretched desktops, along with some single monitor/projector xscreens, with up to six Video Windows scattered among them.
Super Large Projector Systems Deployed
The HX Series is being used by Xi Graphics customers to build an impressively large interactive system that has 48 pojectors that requires only one computer box to house the graphics cards and the Accelrated-X SW. Plans for a system with 91 projectors is on the drawing boards.
