Video Walls are integrated into a variety of environments: command & control centers, lobbies, customer centers, museums, entertainment, retail venues and many other public spaces. Their vivid and dynamic display brings attention to visual media, digital information & video program content.
Businesses and organizations that present information for meetings, sales pitches or other purposes will also benefit from the addition of a video wall. It’s exactly as it sounds — a combination of displays that work in unison to create a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts. The displays are contiguously aligned to create one large screen that optimizes the viewing experience. Today’s multi-screen video walls have become more affordable and are finding their way into other environments such as large meeting rooms, auditoriums & theaters. Any organization that wants to present visually to numerous people, at a significant distance, will benefit from this innovative technology.
Video walls can be used as one large screen or divided into sections to accommodate various inputs simultaneously. Video walls are not only used in large spaces but also by organizations that operate in intimate settings, allowing viewers to see information on individual screens when standing right in front of them. So, while a combination of screens at the top of a wall can show images or video for the benefit of viewers at a distance, the screens in the lower section can present data for those who are close by.
Ease of Use
As display technology has evolved over the years, the bezels that frame them have become much thinner, The thinner bezel minimizes the space between the display screens to the point that viewers are hardly aware that they’re looking at a combination of screens instead of one gigantic screen. Certain monitors are made specifically for video walls and have LED backlighting that permit uniformity of brightness across all displays. These unique screens are built with cooling fans and heat sensors. As soon as a chosen temperature is exceeded, the fans will activate to cool the monitors until the temperature returns to normal.
Control and Coordination
Once the screens are stacked and the bezels aligned, they can be remotely configured through integrated control systems. These systems control power, adjust screen composition and determine inputs. Video walls are driven and managed by a variety of means. The smaller walls will be run by video cards that are capable of powering multiple monitors. Larger walls will need video processors created to specifically power video walls of significant magnitudes. Computer software and networking equipment are typically necessary to fully control and coordinate the monitors. Some video walls can even be operated through web-based software that enables the operator to instantaneously change video wall information with a few clicks and keystrokes.
Video walls can display much more data and information than a single computer monitor with a display brightness unrivalled by overhead projection. Since there are multiple screens and each can be customized to display unique content, this format is ideal for presentations in front of large groups of people with unique interests and desires. Video wall technology makes quite an impression with an audience. They’ll be wowed by its sheer size, its rich colors and its precise pixel-perfect and seamless video imagery.
