One of the key advantages of video wall technology over static displays or even consumer-grade display technology is the way it can be adapted to suit a multitude of functions.
Video walls come in so many form factors that it’s possible to find a video wall solution that suits almost any environment. Not only are video walls suitable for a huge range of applications and functions, their functionality can also be adapted to meet new, emerging requirements.
The ability to interact with exhibits and artwork is key to so many museum and culture experiences, so it’s incredibly important that video wall technology enables visitors to interact with it.
One of the main goals of museums and cultural venues in 2018 is to forge a more meaningful connection with visitors, and a great way to do this is by making your exhibits interactive. Visitors can play games, swipe and manipulate 3D models of physical objects, explore information repositories and much more.

A diverse array of technology and specifications
Not only does video wall technology offer a diverse range of form factors and sizes, but there is also a wide array of technology available to satisfy even the most demanding of requirements.
Bezel width: the width of bezels used in a video wall varies hugely based on the requirements and budget of a museum. The smaller the bezel, the more seamless the join between video wall panels is.
Screen sizes: dimensions across video wall technology also varies hugely, meaning you can find a size of video wall that suits almost any requirement.
Pixel pitch: also sometimes known as dot pitch, this term refers to the optimal viewing distance from a screen in order to make content legible and vivid.

Ease of installation
You would be forgiven for thinking that video walls were incredibly complex to install and get up running, and while it’s not quite a plug-and-play setup process, it’s vastly more simple than you might think! There are a number of ways you can install a video wall, including:
Wall mounted: a video wall can be installed directly onto or into a load-bearing wall. Not only does this save space that would be taken up by a free-standing video wall, but it also makes the video wall look like an elegant, integral part of the museum’s design.
Free-standing: video walls can also be installed using a free-standing mounting system. This allows easier movement around the museum than a wall mounted video wall, as well as making the back of the video wall more accessible.
A particularly compelling advantage of video wall technology in museums is the immersive, engaging experiences that can be created by combining multiple video wall displays.
Video wall technology adds a new paradigm to the museum experience, one that is immersive in a way that was previously achievable. By covering multiple walls of an exhibition room with multiple video wall displays, you can transform the room into a truly immersive space.
The Porsche Museum in Stuttgart features a wide, multi-panel video wall complete with touchscreen functionality and a dynamic array of content. The array of displays features multi-touch functionality, allowing multiple visitors to interact with a wide range of dynamic content at the same time.
You can add another layer of immersion by enabling touch functionality on your video wall displays. Allowing your visitors to interact with and effect an exhibition creates a more memorable, affecting the experience.
