ViewSonic announces a new all-in-one LED display that goes up to 216 inches in size
Displays that can take up whole vertical surfaces are popular in enterprise and professional contexts, and for some good reasons. They are often effective when displaying video, presentations or even interactive content to larger audiences, or in simply reinforcing brand identity or prestige. However, they can also come with many drawbacks.
Older screen-walls often needed to be made of many individual LCD panels, which could entail a lot of work, maintenance and, above all, wires to make sure the content in question would be confluent and legible across the resulting grid of individual displays. Furthermore, LCDs had a limit of 98 inches per panel.
Therefore, this form-factor is moving on to LED at this point. This often allows for just 1 huge display; however, they may also be associated with the disadvantages of needing multiple different controllers or systems to (again) show the image or video as intended.
ViewSonic claims to address all such problems with its new All-in-One Direct View LED Display. The OEM asserts that it consolidates all of the systems necessary to operate one of them into 1 device. In addition, it may be operated easily using the same company's ViewBoard interface or one of its touchscreen monitors.
The Direct View LED Display is also rated for an potentially enhanced viewing experience, with 120% of the Rec.709 wide color gamut and bezels of "only" 10 millimeters (mm) in size. Each of these new video walls is also only 35mm thick. ViewSonic also claims that their streamlined design means that one can be installed by as few as 2 people.
The new displays also confer the possible advantage of needing as little as 1 unit per display. They come in SKUs of 108, 135, 163 or 216 inches. Their availability and pricing may be accessed via the OEM's website.
