Video Wall vs Screen - Pros & Cons
|Comparison||Video Wall||Screen & Projector|
|Calibration||Each video panel requires calibration to match the other panels||Only one device to calibrate: the projector|
|Video Source||Multipe sources accepted, also introduces multiple failure points||Only one source is required, no matter the size|
|Maintenance||Require realignment and color balancing multiple times per year||Minor to none. Filters and / or lamps, easily changed|
|Consistency||Video panels 'drift' at different rates, causing a distracting
|Very consistent. Laser projection even more so.|
|Installation||Complex! Usually require structural support as complete video wall
often weighs over 1,000 lbs
|Much faster and easier to install. May require a lift depending on ceiling height|
|Cost||Typically starting above $100,000 + installation and parts||A small fraction of the cost, both in shipping of materials and installation.|
What about light?
The one advantage video wall displays have over traditional projection screens is that they typically perform better in brighter lit room conditions. But with Screen Innovations SLATE XL material, up to 70% of an environment's ambient light can be rejected from the screen, resulting in stunning images and video, even with some lights on. Imagine the impact a massive video screen will make on your congregation. Incredibly immersive worship,as well as clear & easy to view video and text.
