How Userful Works with LED panels

Although a traditional back-lit LCD video wall still offers the best value for highest resolution, direct output LED panels are dropping quickly in cost and offer higher brighness, true zero-bezel and typically a longer lifespan and wider range of colors. As higher resolution direct-output technologies such as OLED and MicroLED come to market the resolution and pixel-density will be less of an issue, although there still some time until it becomes mainstream.

For anyone requiring true zero bezel or ultra-high brigtness, LED is the way to go. Nowadays LED walls are custom built to order. Installers spec the solution to the pixel size they need and manufacturers build to order. The question we get asked most often is:

How to Build a Very Large Banner Video Wall

Banner video walls are a vital tool for digital signage professionals. After all, banners are a very common way to display static signage. To make a banner video wall it is a matter of stitching together a series of displays in a row (horizontally) or in a column (vertically), and being able to do this, in theory at least, ad infinitum.

Can I really build an infinitely large banner video wall?

Perhaps you may think that as long as you have the space to put up the banner video wall, you can make it as large as you want. But the truth is that there are limitations (the good news is that there are ways around those limitations...but more on that later).

What should I know before buying a video wall?

Over the past few years, video walls have become much easier to use and dramatically less expensive. However, choosing and installing a video wall system is no casual task. Before you decide on a supplier, manufacturer or specific system, ask yourself these questions:

1. What is the purpose of this video wall today and in the future?

You need to be very clear on what you actually need the video wall system to accomplish both today and in the future. Obviously you’ll know from the start whether it’s for signage, data visualization, dashboards, mission control, but within these categories there are still many different business objectives you might have in mind. One office video wall might be strictly for dashboard and KPI displays while another might be primarily for that use case but also for team collaboration which would require more interactivity. But is it also possible you may want your video wall to accomplish both of these tasks in the future?

What are video walls used for?

Video walls seem to be popping up everywhere these days. It isn’t hard to see why – they have been eye-catching and extremely engaging ever since they were first introduced in the 1980s, but back then their phenomenal cost limited video walls to a few specific applications. Modern video wall technology has become more cost-efficient, enabling their use in almost any application.

Video walls to engage audiences

Digital signs and billboards are highly engaging and work to catch the eye of passers-by like no other technology can. That allows them to deliver a commercial message quickly and effectively even amid the clamor of distractions, and it also allows them to deliver critical safety and directional information as well. This makes video walls ideal for a huge variety of industries and use-cases including retail, airports, hospitals, financial institutions, universities and educational settings, live events, hospitality and entertainment, and many more. Digital signage and video walls are also implemented in the service industry, particularly Quick Service Restaurants (QSR) as menus and interactive information board.
