The quality of the equipment in a conference room can make or break a meeting. For example, if your screen is too small or your projector cannot display a clear picture that everyone can see, your meetings and presentations will suffer for it. It’s time to say goodbye to projectors and hello to conference room video walls. Simply put, video walls are brighter and perform better visually. They also allow you to display content from multiple sources simultaneously.
So, if you are looking to transform your conference room into a smart, connected space where employees both in the meeting or working remotely can collaborate in a more productive way, adding a video wall to your conference room can help you do that! But choosing a one can be overwhelming if you don’t know what to look for. That’s why we’ve created a step-by-step guide to help you to find a conference room video wall solution that is right for you.
What is a Video Wall?
A video wall is a large display that consists of multiple screens that are combined and tiled together to create one large display. The great thing about this technology is that you can either choose to display different data on multiple screens. Or, you can display one large image. It really depends on how you are going to use it. When used in a conference room it places both in-room and remote meeting participants face to face, life sized, and at eye level.
What are the Benefits of Video Walls?
For starters, video walls are incredibly flexible for displaying content in that they allow you to view multiple streams of information at once. In addition to this, they deliver performance and interactivity that simply isn’t possible with more basic solutions like a projector. Versatility is a key feature of this technology. Below we list a few of the major benefits video walls offer.
The Benefits Video Walls Offer:
Display a variety of content
Dynamic content placement
Flexible in shape and size
What are the Types of Video Walls?
Video walls come in all shapes and sizes. LCD, LED and projection systems are all types of video walls. Every display technology has uniqueness. And, each offer their own set of strengths and weaknesses. For this reason, it’s best to understand how they work and how they are used in corporate settings.
LCD Video Walls
An LCD video wall is a large display surface that is built from multiple LCD displays (also known as ’tiles’). They have a number of advantages over other display technologies, like rear-projection and direct LED video walls. These include: high brightness, affordability, low real estate needs.
LED video walls are comprised of Direct View LED displays (also called DV) that work together as a unit to display content as if it were a single screen. This type of display consists of hundreds of tiny LEDs (light emitting diodes) that are mounted directly on a panel. Each LED is essentially a miniature lightbulb that emits a colored light.
