A video wall is a special multi-monitor setup that consists of multiple computer monitors, video projectors, or television sets tiled together contiguously or overlapped in order to form one large screen, including LCD video wall and LED video wall.
Today we would like to discuss about the application for indoor environment, like shopping mall, cinema, hotel or restaurant, if you’re in the market to rent a video wall, you’ve probably run into all sorts of confusing info.
Here’s some comparison between LCD and LED video wall, so that you can make the right choice for your indoor application.
- The image on an LCD wall will be sharper than on LED walls, especially while standing nearby, since it’s made from HDLCD panels (2K/4K resolution) and low pixel pitch (<0.63mm). While people need to view LED walls from a distance to get the full picture, because pixel pitch is more than 1.25mm, if you want to get the full picture only when you’re further away.
- As we know, the brightness of LED video wall is high which makes them a great option for outdoor events, but LCD walls can be very bright also (500-700nits brightness), which is suited for indoors.
- Since an LCD video wall is basically controlled via computer, it’s typically easier to create content. Besides, you can use HDMI Matrix to achieve more input sources, which is able to display different content on each screen or combine each two or four screen as another one screen. Another option of multi-screen processor, is used for CCTV monitoring normally.
- The installation of LCD video wall is easier quicker, usually it takes about half day or a day, as it request wall mount bracket + panel screen + HDMI/RJ45/power cable connection only. While LED wall maybe needs multiple days for installation, as the components and cable connection are more.
Each product has its advantage, and maybe LCD video wall is a better choice while you are going use it for indoor environment, while LED wall is used for outdoor events.
