Time to Install?
If you are looking into installing a video wall in your organization’s space, here are a few initial questions to ask yourself as you decide how best to use this new and exciting set of displays!
1. How do you want to use your video wall?
The first thing to consider is the reason you are looking to invest in a video wall. Are you wanting it to display your own custom content as an example to customers? Is your focus more sports and entertainment, where you can show multiple sources at once or a big event across all displays? Do you want to show statistics, stocks, or other valuable data in a central location? Is the video wall replacing a normal display in a conference room? Or do you just want something cool to add a little fun to your decor?
There are various uses for video walls, but it is wise to have an idea of how you want your guests and customers to interact with your video wall in order to provide them with the best experience during their visit.
2. Where will you put your video wall?
Video walls can be found in almost any industry or office space. Here are some popular places where you might find these displays:
- Restaurants and Bars
- Office Spaces and Lobbies
- Network Operation Centers
- Educational Institutes
- Retail Stores
- Sport Complexes
- Houses of Worship
- High-End Homes
Oftentimes, your usage and location will go hand in hand. A hotel usually wants something eye-catching and calming in the lobby. A bar probably wants the basketball game playing. A house of worship wants to show the worship band or speaker. A Network Operation Center wants to display important data. A retail store wants bright ads and images.
Within your organization’s space, you will want to implement your video wall in a place that is visible without disrupting the flow of people in the building. When dealing with an office space, you have a bit more flexibility as to where your video wall makes sense. Common places are in lobbies, conference rooms, training rooms, multi-purpose rooms, and in executive offices as well.
3. What size video wall should you consider?

For all of these situations, it mainly depends on the size of the available space. However, these are popular examples we have seen for each video wall size.
4. What features should you prioritize?

It has a 3.5 mm bezel with high-performing brightness and color calibration to ensure a consistent image. These video walls also have user-friendly setup and control and minimal downtime. There are a few other options to add to your video wall, such as touch overlay, bezel-less displays, increased brightness, and more.
