The role that video and digital presentations play in our daily lives is growing at a rapid rate. The same is true for how businesses can leverage the power of video, specifically through the installation, implementation, and management of video walls.
What are Video Walls?
Video walls are a type of digital signage that consists of multiple LED or LCD panels. They can also be comprised of computer monitors, DLP tiles, or even projection screens. However, video walls today are typically made up of LED or LCD screens that are joined to create one large screen. While traditionally video walls were simply a way to expand an image or piece of content across an entire wall, now their capabilities are much more sophisticated, including advanced content options and remote management features.
Where can Video Walls be Used?
The uses and applications for video walls are virtually limitless. This technology is ideal for a wide range of industries and sectors including retail, hospitality, transportation, stadiums, arenas, and more. Video walls allow for large scale displays while avoiding an inferior, expensive large, single screen. Single screens limit the size and shape of a display and offer decreased pixel density and performance.
Video Wall Benefits
The are many benefits that a video wall provides.
Because each tile works to create a single canvas, your video wall software allows you to control what is on each device.
The content on each tile can be scaled, cropped, zoomed, layered, and more. This give you complete control to create the presentation you need.
By design, video walls offer maximum uptime and reliability. This means that is essentially no maintenance that needs to be performed.
Video walls can be as versatile as you need them to be. From wall-mounted to free standing displays, you can design your video wall perfectly fit any environment.
Video Wall Considerations
New developments in video board technology are making these integrations more powerful than ever. With higher levels of visual performance and improvements in design, installation, and service; immersive, flexible video wall solutions offer outstanding image quality and mission critical reliability.
When considering a video wall for your organization look for built-in video extensions. These extensions deliver greater installation flexibility and virtually eliminate the cost of using third-party cable extenders, as well an increase in reliability. You should also seek a platform with a single power module. This means that no AC power outlets are required behind your display, reducing the rack space and power outlet requirements needed by alternative video walls. Reliability is also essential. When a video wall is engineered for 24/7 reliability it means that any potential system failure can be easily accessed, reducing, if not eliminating any downtime.
Video walls can be a powerful and effective addition to any location. However, they can only work as well as they are integrated into your current infrastructure.
