It is possible to create impressive video walls with DISE. There are a few options to configure a video wall, which are presented below.
For more information on how to set up NoBorders in Dise see this solution.

Multi-display graphics card
Using a graphics card which can power screens tiled together as a single stretched screen, you can output from a single DISE Premium or DISE Professional player and display the image over a multitude of screens.
Examples of technologies that provide this are: Matrox C/G/M/MMS/P Series, NVIDIA Surround/Mosaic, AMD Eyefinity.
Video wall / display controller
Using a specialized device, display controller, it is possible to take a single input and display it over several screens, cropped and tiled as needed.
There are traditional DP/HDMI/DVI based devices, or devices that rely on IP for transfer. In this case, screens in the solution have an IP receiver.
There are a number of professional digital signage screens that have built-in video walls features.
The screens are connected in a series, or "daisy chain" manner. Contact your screen manufacturer for information whether daisy chaining is possible.
DISE NoBorders is a software solution that provides synchronized playback between multiple players.
Each player is playing one part of a large multiscreen canvas (see example 1). The synchronization is achieved via multicast IP.
An advantage of DISE NoBorders is that screens may be placed in a creative, non-traditional manner on the wall (see example 2).
It also makes it possible to utilise slightly less powerful hardware than if you were to have a single large canvas.
Example 1: Setup in Composer.
Example 2: Escalator example.
