The first decision you will need to make is whether to go with flat panel displays or an LED video wall. Flat panel video walls give you a higher resolution at a lower cost. However, there will be bezels between the displays that give these walls their distinctive grid pattern. LED video walls have the advantage of providing seamless content that is brighter, can be used for indoor signage or outdoor messaging, and has lower power consumption. The trade-off is that LED video walls are generally at a higher price point.
There are many factors to consider in designing a professional video wall with flat panel displays. First, how many displays will your wall require? We refer to these video walls in a column by row format. For example, a video wall with three columns and two rows of displays will be referred to as a “three by two video wall.” Next, consider mounting options. A video wall on a curved surface requires more engineering to install than one on a flat surface. Proper video wall mounting hardware will allow minute adjustments on the x, y, and z-axis to perfectly align the displays. Video wall mounting hardware will also allow access to individual displays for maintenance.
