One of the unique advantages offered by Hiperwall video wall software is the ability to scale to previously impossible proportions. Need a massive video wall with over 100 displays? With Hiperwall, no problem. The challenge? Demonstrating this capability to customers within the space constraints of Hiperwall’s modestly sized showroom.
“Many video wall companies have system limits to the number of displays you can use, typically maxing out at around 100 displays,” said Hiperwall product marketing manager, Jonathan Gieg. “We can go far beyond that, with no theoretical limit to what we can support. It’s easy to explain verbally, but much harder to show 400 displays in an average room.”
Nonetheless, Hiperwall was determined to develop an on-site demo wall to demonstrate their scalability. First, they concluded that a 9 x 4 wall was needed to meet their testing and demonstration needs. At nine panels wide and four panels deep (36 total displays), that’s 17,280 x 4,320 pixels – for a 74,649,600-pixel pallet – perfect for massive control room and digital signage applications.
Using typical 55-inch displays, Hiperwall would have needed a room nearly 40 ft. wide, with a ceiling height of at least 12 ft. Their showroom was considerably smaller.
The answer: build a small-scale model with 24” displays to simulate a massive wall in a small space. To develop this model, Hiperwall needed displays that offered compact size, narrow bezels and essential connectivity features.
