We’ve received many COVID-19 press releases — most of them self-serving. This one is NOT. Kudos to VuWall for offering this up. You don’t even have to have a VuWall system to use it (and it even works on a PC). VuWall is looking to partner with those who are on the front lines working to keep communities safe and healthy by offering its VuWall2 visualization tool as a free download, allowing organizations to create a temporary video wall solution.
By downloading VuWall2, any screen — whether it’s a personal computer or a large-screen TV in a temporary emergency control center or a waiting room — can become a command center. The software grants access to and integrates visual information from many different sources on one screen, including web pages, computers on the network, IP cameras, local applications (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc.), as well as collaboration and video conferencing tools (Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Skype, etc.). It can be set up on a PC or as a make-shift video wall with up to four displays. Operators can intuitively arrange the content sources in any configuration they need for better visualization and run a ticker for emergency messaging. In addition, they can quickly create various layouts, save them and recall them as the situation changes.
To set up a video wall, VuWall2 software only needs to be installed on the PC driving the display(s) and can then be controlled from any computer on the network. Setup time is about an hour.
