From Large to Little: Pushing Digital Signage Boundaries

  • PDF

Take two on the hottest trends in digital signage—4K and video walls—put them together and you’ve got ONELAN’s solution that combines a 4K player with a video wall solution.

VidewallTheir simple, cost effective communication solution, designed to create a high impact visual experience with Ultra High 4K definition, will be on show at their stand at ISE 2015.

To create a video wall using the ONELAN Net-Top-Box (NTB), there are two approaches.  A first approach uses the displays’ built in loop-through capability and a second approach uses a single 4K NTB with a video wall controller from their partner Datapath.

Using the ONELAN 4K player and the Datapath video wall controller, you can break away from the traditional video wall layout. ONELAN says “…your imagination is the only limit with ever more creative video wall arrangements.” And the market for more creative video wall arrangements certainly is growing.
