Introduction

Userful™ software appliance enables customers to group multiple displays to form a single large display, hence enabling a single Userful host to support one or more larger video wall displays. The software appliance is designed to utilize both the CPU and the GPU to maximize performance.

Certified PCs


Certified PCs Specifications
HP EliteDesk 800 G2 Series
(Userful Standard Appliance)
  • Processor: Intel® Core™ i7-6700 with Integrated Intel® HD Graphics 530
  • Memory: 32 GB (supports up to 64 GB)
  • Discrete GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960
  • Storage: 120 GB SSD (up to 500 GB SATA)

Lenovo ThinkStation P310 Tower
(Userful Standard Appliance)
  • Processor: Intel® Core™ i7-6700 with Integrated Intel® HD Graphics 530
  • Memory: 32 GB (supports up to 64 GB)
  • Discrete GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 Ti or EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 SC
  • Storage: 180 GB SSD
  • Network Interface: Intel® I219LM Gigabit Network Connection (optional 10Gig Network Card)




Following points must be kept in mind before buying the intended hardware:

  • Intel® Core i7 processor used should be a Desktop class full TDP processor with an integrated GPU.
  • Unmanaged Gigabit switch should be used for network configuration.
  • If you are planning to install additional cards for your capture needs, use either a mid-tower or full-tower form factor system.
  • If you are planning to implement a 10Gig network, use a 10Gig NIC (Startech 10Gig Network Card) and a 10Gig uplink switch (NETGEAR ProSAFE 52-Port Stackable switch)



Scaling Guide


Please Note:

  • The scaling guide assumes displays are not part of the mirror group. These numbers might increase if the content is mirrored across displays. Please contact your Sales Representative or send an email to sales@userful.com for more details.
  • Userful strongly recommends thoroughly testing a given system and network configuration with anticipated usage scenarios before deployment.
