The Best Resources to Understand LED Video Walls

Published February 9, 2023

LED video walls are the future for immersive, visual displays. From Hollywood productions to corporate board rooms, LED has proven to make magical experiences. The best news is LED video walls are becoming much more accessible.

We brainstormed for a while about writing our own guide to video walls (also called direct view LED). But while doing research, we found so many well written resources that to do our own would just be a collection of quotes from other guides.

So instead, we made a list and summarized some of our favorite resources for understanding how LED video wall technology works and how it can benefit your organization.

Growing Accessibility – Planar

This blog from Planar showcases how the company is making LED video walls more accessible. Early LED adopters often had to pay a high price. Planar is now making fine pitch LED more accessible with the Planar MGP Series and Planar MGP Complete, which cost about the same as tiled LCD video walls. They are designed for Full HD and 4K content and look great on camera, making them a great option for organizations.
