TECH UPDATES

The Evolution Of The Video Wall

Seeing a video-wall in person was once a mind-blowing experience - once exclusively seen at casinos, massive events, or Time's Square. Now these eye-catching experiences can be found at local banks, your favorite bar, or even the lobby of your doctor's building. What's changed?

Video walls have become:

  • More Affordable
  • More Functional
  • Easier To Install & Maintain

Great news for those of us who like to be informed & entertained and even better news for businesses that want to communicate messages and engage visitors. Let's dive into three factors that have reshaped the increased demand for video walls:

  • More Affordable - There have always been business that would love to leverage video walls to display messages to visitors but simply just couldn't afford them. Often times the solution was video projection, an analog display or nothing at all. Thankfully now, manufacturers have made this possible by providing extremely thin-bezel video wall solutions that are much lower in price, opening up opportunities to a new market of customers.
  • More Functional - Those thin-bezels are critical, especially within the education market where the major drawback were those thick lines between panels that broke up an otherwise fascinating display. Reducing those lines or bezels lead to super-thin options and after all if video walls are pursued by those who are conscious about cost these folks are only going to pay for what looks great. In addition, newer video walls offer a reduction in depth, so while older ones might have had to have been placed two or three feet off the wall now smaller-footprint ones there is less space being sacrificed.
  • Easier to Install & Maintain - Why should a client care if a video wall is easier to service? Simple. The easier it is to install and service directly correlates to less time and energy needed to maintain meaning lower cost of service and ownership.These thinner, newer paneled video walls have facilitated this.

In years past video walls have been made using thick, heavy panels or cubes. It's not hard to imagine how difficult it was for a service team to remove a damaged panel, repair and replace it. Now those panels are easier to remove, not just due to them being lighter, but because most manufacturers have created easy-access solution's for quickly tilting or removing panels to repair.
