More on the ICUE GRID from Teracue:

ICUE GRID is our latest decentralized, IP-based video wall solution for the variable display of video streams. ICUE GRID enables the online control of live and on-demand content in practically any image resolution. The ICUE GRID video wall uses pure IP video data and distributed processing, meaning that its architecture is limitless. You can place numerous contents, news tickers or graphics at any desired position and in any resolution.

ICUE GRID layout designs can be totally creative or align themselves to layout presets. Its underlying distributed processing model can deal with any size video wall and even manage multi room video wall set ups. ICUE GRID also recognizes NDI (by NewTek™)  sources and displays these with near-zero latency anywhere on the Video Wall.
