Traditionally, digital marketing and signage agencies looking to create video walls have always turned to complicated relay systems, costly patented servers, high-end video cards and expensive or limited signal splitters. There have been many approaches of delivering LED Screen video walls that people have always had the challenge of talking about a standardized approach. This factor has seen many agencies juggling various solutions so that they can meet their content deployment requirements within video wall categories. The lack of proper standardization has always been a major challenge and source of frustrations especially for newcomers and even experienced professionals in system deployments.
This has also been one of the reasons why video walls are very expensive as well as their maintenance costs. To solve these problems, agencies now prefer network delivery because it simplifies system deployments. In this case, agencies are able to use a LAN (Local Area Network) as their delivery mechanism. This choice is ideal because it presents itself as a standardized way of deployments and offers a cost-effective mechanism to using video walls. When a Video Wall is delivered over a LAN, this can reduce the amount of equipment installers, specialized knowledge and the need of support teams.
Network resources and equipment are easily available and standardized. Its general use can significantly reduce the costs of deployments. This also provides users with unique benefits one of which includes flexibility. However, the different approaches of video wall deployments over a given network have had scalability and performance limitations. The most important thing agencies should understand is that when deploying an LED Display video wall, they should use an approach that is less complex and cost-effective. They should also consider the pros and cons of each approach available and decide which one best suits their application. Otherwise, both the network based approach and traditional solutions are still effective in deploying video walls.
