Small may be beautiful, but big is better, particularly when it comes to getting noticed. The obvious solution is to buy one massive display, but that isn’t always practical for many reasons, including cost or the space you’ve got to play with. This is where a video wall comes into play. By combining individual digital signage displays, you get a larger and more flexible display.
Benefits of a video wall
There are three primary benefits to choosing a video wall over a single display. First is cost, as it’s often cheaper to purchase multiple smaller displays as opposed to a single, large display. This approach also provides you with flexibility, letting you add extra displays as the budget is made available. And, you can swap out and replace individual smaller displays when required rather than having to replace the entire wall.
A video wall is also more flexible in terms of layout. Instead of being restricted by the single rectangular shape of one display, you can arrange your displays any which way you choose – perfect if your wall is L-shaped or you just want to experiment with an eye-catching shape. And remember, you can arrange your displays both horizontally and vertically for maximum effect.
Finally, multiple units configured to display a single image will provide you with a higher resolution than a single HD display. For example, four full HD displays arranged in a 2×2 grid would effectively give you an Ultra HD 4K display. This can then be scaled up further as your budget allows it – for example, arranging 16 displays in a 4×4 grid would give you 8K.
