A video wall controller allows the user to make the most of a multi-screen wall. Organizations that need the level of viewing capacity that a multi-monitor setup is capable of providing typically don’t want to waste any time getting the images they need up on the screen.
A video wall controller makes it easy to get the right content on the right screen—fast. It allows the user to switch between modes: from displaying a single unified image on all screens to placing a unique scene on every screen. Screens may be combined to offer larger, more readable displays. These systems are extremely versatile and powerful.
What is a video wall?
Some companies use configurations of multiple screens on a single surface for advertisements and/or corporate communications. Government organizations often use them for briefings. They are powerful presentation tools as well. Images may be shared from screen to screen. Each screen can show a portion of the image to create a single large image across two, four, six, eight, or even more screens. And, of course, every screen can be programmed to show something different.
Obviously, commanding several monitors at once is a lot more complex than regulating a single screen. Without the proper video wall controller, operators won’t have the ability to utilize this technology to their optimum benefit.
Shopping for a video wall controller
When selecting this type of tool it’s important to choose one that works with an integrated AV set-up. These processors should also be able to offer the user additional functions—the power to expand and shrink windows, rotate images, or transition images as needed. However, there are thousands of devices that offer these and many other features.
Operators usually opt for a device that is as user-friendly as possible. Any AV system should be a turn-key solution for the organization that plans to use it. Few companies have time to spend grappling with technology for hours at a time. Choosing a controller whose functions can be learned quickly and easily is paramount.
It is best to acquire one of these devices as part of an overall AV infrastructure created by an AV integration expert. Those devices are very complex, offering an array of options. It’s not a good idea to try to acquire them as stand-alone pieces unless you are replacing an existing piece that has recently malfunctioned. The wrong equipment could severely undermine a company’s ability to make the most of its multi-monitor arrangement.
