The video wall market is definitely back. Now Barco’s trying to make it easier for integrators to spec Barco, instead of someone else, by bundling video wall systems. The company has three different packages:
- The Monolithic package, designed for client server based applications, is used primarily in simple settings, such as meeting rooms. This package features the TransForm N Multimedia Terminal controller. Here are the details for this one:http://www.barco.com/en/products-solutions/preconfigured-entry-level-control-room-package-optimized-for-meeting-rooms.aspx
- The Legacy Input package features the TransForm ECU controller and offers an easy-to-install, pre-configured solution for base band inputs. This package is meant for the Telecom and Utilities industries. You can see it here:http://www.barco.com/en/products-solutions/preconfigured-control-room-package-optimized-for-legacy-inputs.aspx
- The High-performance Networked package, with the TransForm NSD controller, is suited for more advanced functionality, such as collaboration via networked sources and video decoding. Primarily used for Traffic Management & Security purposes, this package fully leverages the power of Barco’s Control Room Management Suite (CMS) to make sharing and collaboration easy.

The size and resolution of the video wall can be defined by the configuration (2×2, 3×2 or 4×2) and the screen diagonal (46” or 55”) of the full HD LCD screens. In this way, video wall sizes range from approximately 81”x46” (2048×1158 millimeters), up to 192”x54” (4862×1372 millimeters), which is designed for small control rooms.
