  • Overview

What is a Video Wall?

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. Typical display technologies include LCD panels, Direct View LED arrays, blended projection screens, Laser Phosphor Displays, and rear projection cubes.

Screens specifically designed for use in video walls usually have narrow bezels in order to minimize mullion, the gap between active display areas, and are built with long-term serviceability in mind. Such screens often contain the hardware necessary to stack similar screens together, along with connections to daisy chain power, video, and command signals between screens. A command signal, for example, may power all screens in the video wall on or off, or calibrate the brightness of a single screen after bulb replacement.

Did You Know?


Video Walls are not just for digital signage — they are perfect solutions for displaying impactful graphics and tremendous amounts of data. Video Walls are an indispensable requirement for many control room applications including energy operations, telecommunications, emergency operations, health care facalities, utilities management, process control and transportation.

Depending on the application, many video walls (especially in digital signage) do not need a technician or operator for it to be in use. In other applications, such as control rooms, video walls are used for sensitive content and are frequently considered "mission critical". Whether your application is continually running digital signage or a is set up in a mission critical control room, the most important thing to consider is using reliable technology to maintain video wall success.

Lightware Product List


Lightware USA offers a wide selection of Video Wall Solutions for Pro AV. Some of our product solutions include:

 

25G fr160x160 25G fr80x80   

Configuration


The 25G Hybrid routers have three main components. To configure the best 25G solution for a particular application you need to choose a frame, need to find out what Media layers you will use for your application and then populate the ready frame with the input and output boards. The main point of this structure is that you only need to pay for what you need and won’t have extra unused functions. To find the best configuration is very important so our sales and support teams are happy to help you.

 


Frames


The first step is to choose the right frame. The biggest 25G frame handles 160 input and 160 output ports, this frame can be ordered with the same functionality but less ports as well like 120x120, 160x80, 80x160. Currently the smaller 25G frame has 80 inputs and 80 outputs. CPU and power redundancy are available for the 25G matrices for a high level of security: it’s possible to add a second redundant CPU and more redundant power supply as well. An additional monitoring board is also available for special applications that requires real time monitoring of any input or output signal.

  • 25 Gbit/sec per port video signal speed
  • Multilayer signal management
  • 160x160, 120x120, 80x160, 160x80 video crosspoint versions 
  • Intuitive GUI interface for easy handling of all functions
  • Room and User Management 
  • Front panel touch screen 
  • Redundant power supplies – 24/7 secure operation 
  • Hybrid Modular technology

Media layers

The second step of the configuration is to find out which layers the application requires. The video layer with the embedded audio is always included in the frame by default. If your application requires more layers you can choose from the seven options. Choosing the layers mean you need to decide what type of signals you want to get handled by the 25G router.

Input and output boards

After we selected the frame and we picked the layers the third step is to populate the matrix with the Input and Output boards. The following 25G boards are already available for order and the number of them is also continuously growing with new developments. Some of the MX series boards are available for the 25G matrices too.

Add-ons

25GH A1-

On input cards: this feature is a S/PDIF audio input on an RCA connector. The incoming signal can be embedded into the HDMI stream or sent to the forward audio layer. Output cards: this is a S/PDIF audio output on an RCA connector. The output signal can be the de-embedded audio from the 25G Video layer or the Forward audio layer as well. The HDMI input / output board’s audio options are hardware configurable by jumpers on the board. 

 

A2-

Bidirectional configurable S/PDIF signal on RCA connector. The audio signal can be de-embedded from the HDMI signals and sent out on the S/PDIF ports or the S/PDIF connectors can work as analog audio inputs, in this case the audio input signal can be embedded (or replaced) to the HDMI signal on the output board.

 

A3-

Bidirectional configurable analog audio on Phoenix connectors. The audio signal can be de-embedded from the HDMI signals and sent out on the phoenix ports or the phoenix connectors can work as analog audio inputs, in this case the audio input signal can be embedded to (or replace) the HDMI signal on the output board.

 

A4-

Delivers a flexible audio embedding and de-embedding function, digital to analog and analog to digital conversion features. It supports all standard audio formats operating with two RCA audio connectors per port which can be configured by control software as analog stereo in OR analog stereo out OR digital S/PDIF in and out connectors. Every port has a built-in mini audio crosspoint switch to handle all input and output channels such as: the Forward audio layer, 25G Video layer (Embedded audio), Return audio layer and the HDMI embedded audio, the HDMI ARC (Audio Return Channel) and the add-on’s audio input/output. Any smart combination can be set and managed by the control software, no hardware configuration is needed.

 

K1- Supports USB keyboard, mouse and Smart Card connectivity. It handles two USB 2.0 (or 1.1) HID devices with a USB-B connector per port containing integrated USB HUBs.
