7 best TVs for video wall setups in 2022

TVs

A display screen is the center of attraction in any digital signage setup. But what do you do when one screen is not enough? It’s quite simple; all you’ve got to do is to build a video wall. And we’re not raking about a brick and concrete wall. Actually, a video wall is a group of two or more digital signage displays, LCDs, TVs, and other display hardware that combine to form a single gigantic screen.

Video walls can take just about any shape or size, depending on what the user wants. For reference purposes though, the most common dimension is a 2×2 setup consisting of 4 TVs. But more importantly, they can be controlled manually or remotely, the layout of the tiles can be customized, and they provide a better picture density when compared to single large screens.

TVs as video walls

TVs can be used to build video walls, but you should remember that not all TVs can serve this purpose. Essentially, because they are specifically designed for specific objectives and audiences. So, before you set out to build a video wall, you must assemble a range of TVs with similar characteristics that can work a video wall.

There are certain traits to look for in TVs before deciding if they’re fit to serve in a video wall or not. The most important though is that the TVs must have thin bezels. For clarity, a bezel is the border between the screen and the frame of a display device. So, as a rule of thumb, only consider TVs with thin or narrow bezels when shopping for TVs that will make up a video wall.

The main reason why we prioritize this feature is to minimize the frame and maximize the display area. 

Another thing you want to consider is the display size. The length and breadth of digital signage display is paramount in any digital signage setting. Sometimes, one extra inch might just be the magic trick. And other times, even that extra inch might prove to be less sufficient. 

Other characteristics that must be deliberated upon include durability, resolution, layout, and location.

With that said, here in our list of the seven best TVs for video walls.
