Benefits Of Using Video Walls
Business and venue owners can obviously leverage this to their advantage. And speaking of advantage, there are many that come with video wall technology, and a comprehensive list could go on forever.
1. No resolution easy concept – Resolution is an easy concept to understand. It’s about pixel count and density. The more pixels, the more detailed an image the display can deliver. From this simple concept, it’s clear why video walls are so effective at creating visual impact. Stack an array of high definition displays on top of each other, and those resolutions are additive. As long as there is a formidable digital signal processor driving it all, a video wall can display a massive image with no loss of fine detail.
The applications here are tremendous. Imagine an airport displaying a sweeping skyline of the city, with every minute detail relayed perfectly. Or a museum exhibit that simulates a sojourn through space or time, surrounding visitors while offering a feast for the eyes. There are truly no limits here.
2. Clear image brightness – Front projectors are the primary alternative to a video wall, but they have a problem in bright areas, like venues that rely on natural light. LCD and LED displays are brilliantly backlit, so they offer much greater brightness and contrast values than projectors. This is clear when sunlight intrudes on a projected image – it appears washed out and muted. Not an issue with video walls, and that’s an important advantage, given that natural light is generally considered a feature in modern environmental designs.
3. Flexible hardware layout options – True, most video walls are just that – a wall. They’re grids, but they don’t have to be. With some clever mounting and display options, designers can arrange displays in all kinds of patterns, including abstract geometric or curved layouts. Video walls can even be free-standing or three-dimensional, if using cube displays. In short, there are plenty of hardware layouts that haven’t been done before, if a business or venue wants to go for something truly memorable. And by relying on this approach, the installation’s visual impact can be multiplied while reducing the number of displays present.
4. Processing power – It takes more processing punch to drive a video wall, but that extra processing oomph is another benefit to the technology. Professional-grade video wall controllers, are much, much beefier than those found in single displays. As such, not only can they drive content at a larger scale, they can drive more content at a smoother rate than single displays can.
