There’s nothing more effective than communicating face-to-face when doing business with colleagues and customers. Video also adds a powerful new element of understanding and engagement during collaboration sessions. But is one video display enough to vastly improve collaboration and increase the productivity of meeting spaces? AV managed services integrator, IVCi, thinks that a video wall may be a better option. Here are 4 reasons why:
Flexible and interactive presentations. Compared to a variety of other display systems including projectors, single large displays, and individual monitors, video walls can display practically any content, adapt to changing resolutions and format from any device. The individual tiles that make up a video wall simultaneously work together to create a single display, however the controller wishes. This means that a single presentation, or even multiple different windows, can be arranged, cropped, zoomed, scaled, etc. to be as flexible and as interactive as you wish, allowing for simple presentations to be turned into custom creations in a matter of minutes.
Minimal set-up and maintenance. Video walls are designed and created to be extremely reliable and long-lasting, causing them to have almost no level of required maintenance. Traditional projectors, on the other hand, require multiple light and engine tune ups and replacements throughout their lifetime. Video walls, however, are made from high-grade materials made to withstand 24/7 runtime in critical environments, causing them to be extremely reliable. While the initial cost of video walls may be expensive compared to traditional conference room displays, the limited amount of parts and replacements needed make up for the larger initial cost in the long run.
Increased collaboration and engagement. Having the ability to display numerous charts, documents, or web pages during a conference allows for a greater level of communication and participation from members. Not only can video walls post a number of different materials onto the same screen at once, but other conference participants can also cast their own information onto the video wall, allowing for individuals to make edits, comment on, and start discussions about these materials, adding an additional layer of interaction and collaboration to the meeting.
Greater level of efficiency. Video walls provide opportunities for large organizations to create impactful, high-resolution presentations to engage audiences, welcome visitors, and promote new ideas. The freedom to collaborate with remote individuals by sharing information through these interactive walls creates a greater level of efficiency and streamlines work throughout an organization.
