1. They’re exceptional for information-critical environments.
Kicking off at number one, we must talk about how unique this technology is in environments that rely on the swift flow of information. When talking about information-critical settings, we’re talking about control rooms such as police control, mission control, emergency response, and industrial control rooms.
These environments depend on the speedy delegation of information and tasks to operate. With a video wall, users can display a high concentration of information in a condensed display, meaning that all the necessary information is right in front of the user. There’s no need to slow down operations, and control room professionals can receive all their critical information clearly and concisely!
2. There are many kinds of multi-screen video walls.
One of the great things about video walls is that users have the luxury of picking from multiple types. The most popular multi-screen video walls are LCD panels, LED, rear-projection cubes, and blended projection. The benefit of this is that users can decide based on individual project needs, not peer pressure and industry craze.
Each of these walls comes with separate price tags, ranging from more economical to professional prices. So, if you’re making your video wall decision based on cost, you can breathe a sigh of relief.
Cost-effective options such as LCD panels are popular due to their scalability and cheap upfront value. You can transform this into a professional quality display with a good quality video processor!
3. They’re versatile
Video wall technology is entirely multi-use, meaning you’re not confined to just one function and one environment. They can also be small enough to be transported, so if you need the wall for your office one day but a convention or trades show on the other, you’re covered!
4. Businesses can impress with a multi-screen video wall
Video walls are an impressive spectacle, and it’s not shallow to state that this can positively impact your career progression. In terms of improving your company profile, video wall technology ensures that your consumers and competitors see you as you are, at the cutting-edge of communication and display.
Investing in a high-quality video wall with all the bells and whistles can prove to your potential business partners that you take information, technology, and communication seriously, making you a key candidate for investors interested in innovative businesses. Therefore, video walls can be a very lucrative business strategy!
5. They use three kinds of technology to operate.
Video walls don’t just operate by accident; they use sophisticated technologies to produce impressive and dynamic displays! These technologies are video wall controllers, processors, and matrix switchers. Here is a quick guide to them:
Processors: Video wall processors are control boxes that process input signals via a HDMI to translate and display them onto the video wall. Users can perform multiple functions with a processor, including improving resolution and ensuring no latency or frame drop can impact the quality of the display.
Controllers: Video wall controllers are critical to the overall operation of a video wall and can process multiple input and output signals. With this technology, users can choose which monitors they wish to display their content, mitigate bezels, and how content appears to the audience.
Matrix switcher: Matrix switchers are a must for all demanding AV projects and allow users to switch between input signals seamlessly. Users can also scale up and down, fade in and out, and operate all their tasks from one control box. This truly is an all-in-one system!
6. Many industries use video walls.
As we’ve mentioned, video wall technology is super versatile, and many industries have decided to take advantage of this. You’re likely to have stumbled across a video wall or two in your life; maybe without realizing it! Here is a list of some of the industries that thrive on video wall use:
Marketing and advertising industry
Security and surveillance industry
7. Video walls are proven to be effective for demanding projects that require 24/7 operation
At DEXON, we know that some projects require constant operation and can’t fall victim to faults without having pretty drastic consequences for your business. Well, you needn’t worry. Multi-screen video walls and their accompanying technology are designed to be durable for even the most demanding projects. Depending on the type of video wall you choose to invest in, you can get a lot of bang for your buck in terms of reliability!
8. They improve workplace communication.
Optimizing workplace communication can feel like an uphill climb at the best of times, but you might find that video walls can ease the load! Typically, workplaces struggle so much with communication due to the influence of hearsay and essential information coming from multiple sources.
This means that, eventually, original messaging becomes diluted with personal interpretation until important information is lost entirely. You can display important company announcements from a single source with video walls.
Displaying this on something as significant as a video wall means that everyone can receive precisely the same information, in the same format, at the same time. Say goodbye to the grapevine!
9. Increase company profile amongst consumers
We’ve talked about how looking impressive is essential for your business progression, but how does this influence the consumer personally? Well, with the advancement in technology and as we continue to navigate the digital age, it’s clear that consumers are all the more excited by eye-catching displays and content.
This means that technology needs to be flashy enough to become profitable in modern-day. The great thing about video walls is that they’re scalable, so you decide how striking you want them to be. Therefore, you can attract consumers and optimize your marketing strategy with a compelling video wall strategy!
10. Video wall processors can mitigate harsh bezels.
Sometimes, you get what you pay for in terms of technology, and unless you’re willing to do the hard work, this can apply to video walls. As previously stated, LCD panels are one of the most cost-effective options for video wall technology, but they typically come with the harshest bezels. Bezels refer to the sharp lines at the border of a monitor.
These bezels mean that overall content resolution can take a knock, with images appearing out of alignment. Processors have thankfully found a way around this. With bezel mitigation technology, processors can blur the edges of prints, making them seem aligned to the audience.
You don’t need to splash the cash for a professional quality display!
That concludes your guide and facts about video wall technology. After reading this comprehensive guide, we hope you’ve decided to add video walls to your home or business.
