Some Points about Video Wall Technology:
What Is a Video Wall?
A video wall is in fact a large monitor that includes a series of projectors or monitors that process information in a unified manner and as one coherent system. Since several monitors have been combined in a video wall, the picture displayed on a video wall is much larger and has a better pixel resolution than a single monitor. Video walls are ideal choices to display large images simultaneously and are able to respond to several computers or any other video sources. As the term “video wall” states, a video wall usually occupies part of a wall. Video walls can display picture with the original resolution or change their size. A video wall is made up of two, four, nine, or even 100 monitors.
How to Use a Video Wall?
Video walls are used to display information from a large number of inputs in a manner that it is easily visible for all the people in a given area. A network operation center and a control and command room are examples for places to use a video wall system.
Video walls are used to attract people’s attention and influence them deeply in hotel lobbies, train stations, shopping malls, or other public places. They are also used in digital signages. Large corporations make use of video walls for economical purposes and also to reduce their costs. Recent advances in monitors and projectors and technologies of visual information processing have resulted in better assimilation and easier installation of video walls. A video wall consists of special video wall monitors projector cubes and LED or LCD monitors. Projection cubes are modular and are made to assemble the structure of video walls; one of their advantages is their narrow bezel, which helps in creating more unified picture. Back projections are designed to be placed in special frames. Nowadays, due to advances in LCD and LED monitors, video walls monitors are replacing cubes and projectors. These monitors have a narrow bezel and display uniform picture; that is why they are comparable to cubes. Their consumed energy is very low, which results in a lower total cost of ownership. Some video wall monitors have a built-in processor that allows users to display picture with the desired aspect ratio on each of the monitors. Processing of visual data in an LCD monitor may include compensation for the gap created by the bezels. Compared to internal processors of most other models, Fara Sanat modular processors give the system more flexibility. This input controller supports different sources and accepts signals in different formats. Our video wall processors have a high capacity and bandwidth and can simultaneously process a wide range of data from different sources and make use of them separately and efficiently. When the windows for pictures or their size and arrangement change frequently due to the user’s needs, a video wall processor is a necessity. A video processor usually comes with control software that allow the user to arrange or change the size of windows anywhere in the video wall and to direct the necessary feed to any given window. These pages can be saved as default so that the user can retrieve them through process or control software or AV control system.
1) Nonstop Operation and Displaying High Quality Picture
Because video walls are large and in the center of attention, there picture should always be bright and clear to be clearly visible. Regardless of the amount of input, processing should be performed constantly and completely. The process should be able to maintain the original frame rate for motion picture and to display clearly details of images containing text or graphic designs. It should also respond to the user’s commands without delay, even when dealing with a wide range of input/output signals.
A video wall should be dependable at all times. This is particularly necessary when a video wall is installed in a hazardous environment. Any maintenance procedures, which may include the replacement of parts of the system, should be carried out in a manner that does not disrupt the system.
Video walls are among the most complicated AV systems that ought to be installed and adjusted. The ultimate user may have minimum information on video walls and their operations; training the staff who are to use the video wall and its control software is of utmost importance. Fara Sanat Corporation addresses all the above needs by making use of Tricolor hardware controller and a simple and user-friendly software.
Why a Video Wall?
A video wall system usually requires a special investment because it is the most expensive part of an AV system. Although a video wall acts as an information screen, it is actually a system, not one device. The video wall processor is an integral part of it; the cost of this process is the main reason for the high cost of a video wall system. Video wall processors support the usual facilities of old Scalers, but can handle more input/output data. This added ability, numerous inputs and outputs, makes necessary improvement of processing abilities and aspects and production of better picture. These will add to the value of AV systems. One of these methods is using a projector or several regular monitors instead of a video wall. However, advantages of a video wall outweigh other methods.
