Digital Signage & Videowalls
'We have seen massive
changes, from making onprem
the most-used choice for
digital signage deployments
to embracing cloud to simplify
management.'
- Rich Daugherty
" It seems the focus is less on quantity and
more on the quality of the engagement, "
he opines. On the topic of quality, Wargo
points to resolution as another key metric.
He explains, " In higher-end installations
- certain venues and corporate events -
you're seeing displays capable of greater
resolutions. " Although such displays
can dazzle and captivate, they also have
infrastructure and network implications.

Wargo continues, " [With] higher-end
displays showing up that are capable
of higher resolutions - they have finer
pixel pitch and all those kinds of things
- you would expect more demand on
networks. " Thus, the data systems that
underpin digital signage applications are
having to be fortified.
Turning to Videowalls
I tend to mentally separate digital signage
from videowalls because, to my mind, a
campus digital signage network that shares
news and announcements seems qualitatively
different from a 50-foot by 28-foot
videowall in a stadium. So, let's momentarily
step away from more traditional
digital signage deployments. Instead, let
us consider integrators' involvement with
videowalls and the technology trends we
can discern.
Virtually all interviewees agree that dvLED
is coming on strong when it comes to
large-format displays like videowalls. Coxon
explains, " Direct-view LED continues to
build steam as price per pixel decreases
and as more integrators become familiar
with the nuances of how to configure and
install these systems. " He adds that 1.5mm
dvLED is now affordable and has become
popular in applications that need higher
pixel density and that are viewed at about
11 to 18 feet. Diversified's Mittler concurs,
saying that, in the past, designers would
default to an ultra-narrow bezel videowall
to create the largest canvas possible. " But
the creative team has always had an issue
with bezel lines, " he notes, " regardless of
how much they have been minimized. " According
to Mittler, dvLED technology has
come down in price and installation comJupiter
on its 21:9
Ultra-Wide Displays
Jupiter has a 40-year history of innovation,
and it continues to forge new
paths. The company is expanding its
product portfolio in an effort to transform
the traditional meeting space display
market. For the past decade, 16:9
aspect-ratio displays have been the
default option in the commercial LCD
marketplace. Over the years, options
have become more numerous, but a
problem has remained: These aspect
ratios do not support users' natural
field of view, which is 21:9 ultra-wide.
Recognizing that, Jupiter set its sights
on finding a way to deliver the highest-quality
user experience that the
post-pandemic hybrid workplace has
ever encountered.
Jupiter made the world take notice
with its Pana 105 21:9 ultra-wide LCD
launch. It provides an awe-inspiring
eight feet of uninterrupted real
estate, but it also offers a comfortable
3.5-foot active display height for
improving collaboration and optimizing
productivity. The award-winning
Pana 105 supports flexible spaces and
hybrid-work environments with an
intuitive user interface, and it aligns
with emerging applications involving
native 21:9 formats.
A technology-enabled workplace is
essential for every organization. Learn

plexity to the point that the technology can
satisfy creative and design visions equally.
" Technicians are now trained and have the
expertise to install an LED wall as efficiently
as they do an LCD wall, " he adds.
AVI-SPL's Daugherty says that, for display
deployments of 100 inches or larger, things
will continue to drift toward dvLED, arguing
that flatpanels' use for videowalls will
center on a limited subset of applications:
those with high resolution and short viewing
distances. " Pound for pound, dvLED
is the better option, " he opines, citing, " a
