Creating a jaw-dropping video wall display with a controller
Every time you see an incredible movie scene, one of the first things you probably think of is how great the video wall controller must have been to make such a scene happen. If you’re looking to create an incredible display in your own office or home, it’s essential to consider all the options available to you and to find the right one that fits your needs best. Here are some things to consider when choosing the suitable video wall controller for your needs, along with reviews of five top options currently on the market.
Choose your monitor
A video wall system is a setup where two or more monitors are placed side by side, and each screen has its video projector. This allows you to create one giant video wall screen. With the LED monitors from APEM, you’ll have the best picture quality on your screen that can help bring your idea or invention to life.
Choose your hardware (video processor)
One video system which is famous for video walls is the QID. This controller can handle resolutions up to 1080p and projectors up to 70. With such high resolution, people are usually attracted by the vivid colours and superior picture quality. Even if you want to set up two projectors, it will not produce a noticeable screen-door effect because of the sharp contrast between adjacent pixels in high-definition images. Many options are available when purchasing a video wall screen or screen.
Hook up your equipment and test it out
1. Set up your video wall system in the desired position. We recommend lining up your monitors as close to evenly spaced as possible.
2. Next, plug the power cord into an electrical outlet near your video wall and turn on the monitor on the left of the screen (if you don’t know which one it is, there should be an indicator).
Positioning (placement of monitors)
If you want to make the most of your video wall system and achieve that eye-catching look, placing the screens strategically about one another is essential. For a simple video wall, please place them in an L or U shape on the floor. On the other hand, for an impressive presentation, it is essential to have a little more planning ahead. This can be done by adding shapes like ovals or circles onto the arrangement.
Software – How to use it
Video wall screens are increasingly used for branding, webinars, large-scale presentations, events, and festivals. Installation is easy and can be done by the user without help from an expert. The Software is programmed to run the video projector or inputted in parallel to projectors or TVs using proprietary cables or a standard HDMI cable.
Extra considerations when working with a large screen array
There are a few things to remember when working with such large displays. For example, monitors and projectors often need to be calibrated for both brightness and colour temperature for optimal results. Also, screens will have varying degrees of reflectivity. This is particularly important if you’re trying to install your system outdoors or in areas that are often humid (libraries and museums). Both conditions may alter how reflective the screens appear.
