Low-Cost Video Walls

Low-Cost Video Walls

September 13,2017 Posted by Emily Welch

Some people still think of video walls as an expensive luxury, however, as high resolution screens continue to drop in price, multi-screen video walls are rapidly becoming a much more attainable option. 

Traditional methods of digital signage can often leave retailers worrying about cost, with concerns around bulky, expensive hardware or high CapEx costs being common. Likewise, fear of high energy costs and the dilemma of where to hide reams of ugly wiring can make video walls an unrealistic concept to some.

However, this could not be further from the truth. By utilising the SignStix Player (an inexpensive, energy efficient, Android device) SignStix has substantially driven the cost of video walls down, resulting in high-impact, low cost video walls becoming an achievable addition to any business.


Why Install a Video Wall?


The need to engage and excite customers is one of the most talked about topics in the industry, and video walls are a simple, entertaining way of doing this. A highly effective way of increasing sales, video walls are often used to encourage customers to take advantage of special offers or promotions.

Likewise, video content of products is proven to have a significant positive impact on sales, with tutorials and ‘how-to’ guides quickly becoming the modern equivalent of a mannequin display. An engaging video wall will also increase foot-traffic in stores, as well as creating an exciting atmosphere for customers to enjoy.  


Interactive Video Walls


For next-level digital experiences, interactive video walls can also be built using SignStix. Design interactive displays to showcase products, whereby once a customer has selected one they are particularly interested in, the content changes to provide more information about that specific item. Video walls have been proven to increase brand-awareness, and have been highly successful in all areas from retail to education.


Through our dedicated partner network, SignStix can provide complete, end-to-end video wall services, with only a monthly SignStix subscription and one device per screen. Our intuitive, easy-to-use software means that creating and managing a video wall of your own has never been simpler. Our 4K Players support ultra-high definition video walls out of the box, and pre-processed video slicing independently fits content onto each screen.

All of this results in dramatically lower prices, lower power usage and minimal complexity, making video walls a viable, scalable option for you and your business.
