Video walls, while not new, are now being produced with unprecedented technological advancements by Sony, Barco, and Samsung. They are perhaps the most diverse screens to date in terms of application and use. The attractiveness of the video wall lies in a sleek display that is amplified by an un-bezeled screen, leaving the viewer to take in the image without any visual restraints or borders.
Let’s explore some new versions and features of this coveted gadget and the different companies that are producing them.
Connects Easily with Existing Home Automation
Most connected homes have a working system, regardless of which integrator or integrators you are currently using. Fortunately, video walls are built with myriad contexts in mind, including home theaters, so they provide room for multiple inputs and a variety of configurations. Meaning, not only can you use the same controllers or apps you typically use to navigate your TV, but you can display more than one video feed and share screens with complete ease. (On a design note, the modern, bezel-free construction allows for seamless integration into any interior layout without the visual disruption caused by TVs with thick borders.)
Unencumbered by traditional TV-viewing barriers such as having one fixed location or being exclusive to a particular environment, video walls are the true chameleon of the A/V industry. Since this technology is bezel-free, it means the viewer has free-range to stack multiple screens to create one uninterrupted viewing experience. This is particularly useful for spaces that don’t conform to standard projector or monitor sizes, such as large scale art exhibitions, retail centers, high-end work lobbies, or even simply when expanding the scale of your regular television set. It is this flexibility that provides potential users with so much excitement: thinking beyond the walls by which your watching experience is typically defined.
An Immersive Visual Experience
Specifically for those who plan on using this technology in a larger space, you’ll be happy to hear that Sony and Samsung have included a 180-degree horizontal and vertical viewing angle. If you’re in a medium-sized theater watching a limited screening of a short film, for example, everyone in the room is guaranteed to have the same viewing experience because both of these companies have used AI technology to automatically adjust the screen’s resolution. The immersive visuals never waver in the slightest, even if you’re standing on a balcony or off in the periphery. Expect a uniform and engaging venture.
What used to be achieved by mounting several monitors next to one another like tiles can now be accomplished without visible seams. Even with projectors, the viewing quality was only as great as the projector’s quality, which still does not match that of LED screens. Since video walls are borderless, there is no interruption from one screen to the next. You can get the scope of a multiplex screen with the same LED and OLED technology—filled with the brightest light tones and the richest dark tones—you expect from top-tier monitors. The resulting experience is an unparalleled image with a similarly unparalleled range (both physically and in terms of application).
