A stunning corporate video wall is one of the best ways to encourage employee satisfaction, and inspire guests and partners with on-brand video content in your corporate space. Professionally installed video walls are becoming even more popular among business leaders, because of the opportunity for incredible visual impact via enhanced image display capability and flexibility. With the right planning, technology and content, a stunning video wall can transform your corporate space with that indescribable “wow factor.” This blog shares more detail about corporate video wall uses and best practices in enterprise workspaces.
How Do Video Walls Work?
Essentially, a video wall acts as one display, but is actually a system controlled by powerful processors that tell the screen(s) what to display. Corporate video walls can be configured in so many different ways to fit with the physical space of your office, and the culture that animates it.
A video wall system involves multiple technologies, including display technologies like televisions, LED panels, curved screens and others, which will be discussed in more detail below. It also involves a processing system that is personalized to meet the needs of the company and people using the video wall. If the display technology is digital signage, for example, the processor displays content with a one window – one screen configuration. There are dozens of video wall processors, windowing systems, scaling systems, editing systems and more. Basically, your video wall processor takes data from a server or computer and gets it onto the wall. Depending on the needs of your business, the solution can take any shape it needs to take. With the right technology video walls offer immense flexibility.
Corporate Video Walls Provide Scalability
When you buy a display off the shelf, or hang a computer monitor on your lobby wall, you are limited by that display. A video wall gives you a blank canvas to work with – any size, any configuration. This allows you to show multiple windows on a single display, move windows around, or combine content. You are not limited to one window one screen. Forward thinking companies like this international shoe and apparel brand are enjoying the scalability of video walls for corporate spaces.
High Pixel Density Means Instant Wow Factor
Another benefit to video walls for enterprise businesses is the absolute clarity and beauty of the images it can display. If the goal is to create an unforgettable experience for customers, clients, employees and partners, a corporate video wall is one great way to bring a wow factor. High pixel density is what allows video walls to look so great. According to our partner, Extron, “Pixel density is the number of pixels per unit area, and is determined by the resolution and screen size of a display. When a single projected image is enlarged, pixel density decreases. However, for a videowall, pixel density is constant regardless of the array size, because it is based on the individual display unit. Enlarging the array increases the overall resolution of the videowall.”
What Goes Into Creating a Gorgeous Corporate Video Wall?
Whether you’re planning to use a video wall to inspire employees to reach the next level, to introduce investors to your next big idea, or to roll out a new product for consumers, there are some important technology choices to consider.
Choosing Display Technology
- Televisions (least expensive, but limits flexibility)
- Panels Made for Video Walls (seamless, for larger images)
- Curved Screens (impressive with increased visibility for different viewer angles)
- LED Tiles (make any size and shape you want, like a Vegas strip marquee)
Configuring Your Video Wall
Multiple Screen Systems – This display offers some versatility as a set of two or more screens can be programmed to display the same image, or they can work individually to produce different content. With the ability to attach a virtually unlimited number of screens, this system will work as a large lobby or atrium display, or as an effective presentation tool in the conference room.
Tiled Screen System – This option provides some artistic license in displaying the tiles since you can simply build out your imagery and watch it play out. Best as a first-impression wow factor.
Touch Screen – Great for facilitating presentations, allowing you to arrange media as you need to, in real time. It can also provide some entertainment for visitors in the lobby area.
Video Walls Can Transform Your Corporate Space
As the saying goes, there’s never a second chance to make a first impression. Enterprise businesses are now using video walls to create a stunning impression in their corporate offices. Whether it’s branded content that creates emotional connection to the company, or specific business information for employees who need to know about products and services, video walls can transform the way people feel when they enter your lobby, and that transforms the way they feel about your business.
