Who Wants a Video Wall?

Video wall outside of the Montreal Museum of Art


I’m sure you’ve seen them before, in certain cities it seems like they’re everywhere; no, not rats, I’m talking about video-walls. Just this past New Year I was in Montreal and came across an awesome installation outside of a museum. Not only do I see video walls in my leisure time, I see the video walls we install for our customers and it really is amazing what they can do. So, who wants a video-wall, and why?

Matte white, end of discussion. Let’s move on to something that actually matters, right? Wrong, absolutely wrong. Matte white has long since been a standard in the industry but there are other options that you may not have considered. Different screens are optimized for different environments which is exactly why matte white isn’t perfect for everyone.

Video Walls

When I think of a video wall one of the first images that comes to mind is the Architect’s room in The Matrix: Reloaded. Each wall is covered in old, small, CRT displays with large bezels. While that wall works in the movie it’s not something you are likely to see in the real world. In reality video walls are made to be as seamless as possible so as not to disturb the image that is spread out across the screens. To achieve this seamless image, manufacturers have been consistently slimming the bezels of their displays.

Video as a Service

In an earlier blog post I mentioned the affordability of video conferencing technology, specifically, cloud based video or video as a service. Video as a service differs from traditional infrastructure based video conferencing in a few ways, the largest difference being hardware.

In a traditional infrastructure based environment there are several hardware components needed to complete the system, all of which provide unique capabilities such as firewall traversal, connectivity for mobile devices and video capture/streaming to name a few. In addition to the “behind the scenes” equipment you have your cameras, microphones and speakers. This kind of system can become quite costly and is not necessary for many end users who do not need/want to manage all solutions in house.

If you are still using a PSTN phone network (regular phone line from Verizon or the likes) in your business, it is time for an upgrade. A VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) phone system is less expensive and more versatile. You have heard about and might already be using a service such as Vonage, Basic Talk, Magic Jack, etc. in your home, so why not in your business?

VoIP phone systems are not tied into the old PSTN network, making them less complex, easier to manage, less expensive (no copper phone lines to maintain) and overall more functional. These factors make VoIP the perfect solution for everyone (unless you have no internet access).So why haven’t you made the change? Perhaps you don’t want to make the initial investment or you figure, “if it isn’t broke, don’t fix it.” This is perfectly understandable, change is tough for everyone but in this case it shouldn’t be. Your IT personnel will no longer have multiple networks to manage, your future wallet will love the extra weight it’s put on and your employees will appreciate the convenient features that can be built into the phones.
