ECA Nivo Quad 4K Multiviewer

Drive your digital transformation and enhance your IP video streaming infrastructure with the power and versatility of the Nivo, our new Quad 4K Multiviewer.

In partnership with Matrox Graphics, global manufacturers of innovative video wall, encoding and KVM products, we’re incredibly proud to unveil our very first multiviewer solution! Based on the concept of “Network In, Video Out”, the Nivo decodes data and outputs it on to 4 separate 4K displays. Its versatile design has the scope to support a range of applications including digital signage, traffic management, CCTV monitoring, and high-definition video walls.

Designed and integrated in-house; the Nivo is the first product to bear our branding and is available exclusively from ECA Services.


  • Ultimate performance, unparalleled flexibility

    With a Mura IPX Decode and Display Card at its core, the Nivo can decode RTSP streams and output 4 separate 4K displays. Powered by this innovative board technology, the Nivo is a perfect fit for a variety of AV and video wall applications.

  • Lightweight, compact, and ready-to-go

    Measuring little more than 2’’ thick and weighing just over 1kg, the Nivo delivers unrivalled performance in a remarkably small footprint. Its steel enclosure offers maximum airflow and access, unhindered by aspect or orientation when mounted, and with single side cabling, maintenance times are kept to a minimum.

  • Consolidate your streams with configurable outputs

    The Nivo is a scalable, modular, and flexible solution, supporting display configurations for virtually any application. Outputting in SD, HD and 4K, it can even display at 8K when required. This lightweight appliance can also operate modularly – if you need more displays, simply connect another unit.

  • Technology Launch at DSEI 2017

    During our Research and Development phase in Q3 2017 we were presented with the incredible opportunity to showcase the Nivo at DSEI in London. In collaboration with our partners at Matrox Graphics, the Nivo made its first public appearance on their stand as part of the Canadian Pavilion, demonstrating its versatility with an on-stand demo.

  • Official Launch at ISE 2018

    When it came to launching our Quad 4K Multiviewer, there was truly no better event than the world’s largest AV systems integration show, ISE 2018! The Nivo was an exclusive addition to Matrox’s stand and featured as part of their live on-site demo, streaming 16 separate feeds into a single 4K output.
