Videowalls

Businesses and venues are always vying for attention, and videowalls can be a highly effective approach to that end. The technology operates exactly how it sounds – instead of a single large display, these installations consist of multiple smaller displays linked together in a single system. They aren’t something that people are used to seeing every day, so they are immediate attention grabbers when they are spotted. But more than that, they offer many interesting techniques that can change up the look of the displays or impart much needed function. But even though the technology offers impressive benefits, it should be installed and maintained by experienced professionals, as this will ensure long-term and effective functioning of the system.
 

What can videowalls do for a business or venue?


There is no denying that these installations offer incredible visual impact in the right setting. For this reason, they are often found in art galleries, museums, and in any other venue where aesthetics are a chief concern. They are especially useful in these settings, as any displayed content can be switched out at a moment’s notice, effectively replacing an entire exhibit with a couple button presses. Here are a few other applications of videowalls, in aesthetic and commercial settings:
  • Multiple displays means more visual real estate. With enough space and power, there is almost no upper limit to how many displays can be linked together. This makes the technology ideal for particularly large applications, such as displays for sports arenas and concert halls. In fact, multiple linked displays is often necessary, as single screens lose their integrity at extremely large sizes.
  • Multiple displays means higher resolution images. This gives the technology a much greater degree of function, as large images and typography can be displayed from a distance and retain their quality. 
  • Multiple displays means multiple outputs. Every display can be configured to output something else, and this also expands the system’s versatility. For example, an interactive system at Denver International Airport regularly displays large images next to small type, usually for event and flight schedules. High resolution settings and multiple output options allows the operator to arrange these two elements together while ensuring both can be seen clearly. 
  • Multiple displays means a more striking appearance. Non-profits and businesses often use videowalls for marketing purposes, as they can offer an interactive experience or present visual information in an entirely new way. People respond to these campaigns with interest, making them extremely effective.

The only challenge is installing the system, as it takes a significant amount of support and infrastructure to hold, power, and network the displays. An experienced A/V integrator, like Data Projections, will have no trouble with the process, and can also provide ongoing support throughout the life of the system.
