Multi-display walls are at the forefront of information technology and have revolutionized how we entertain, engage, update and communicate with our audience and colleagues. We know that miscommunication in the workplace causes unnecessary productivity bottlenecks, frustration and leaves everyone feeling a little demotivated, that’s why companies are investing in multidisplay technology to breathe life back into their conference rooms and offices.

But what is a multi-display wall? If you’re scratching your head, don’t worry. At DEXON, we’re here to provide you with all the information you need to get started on your multi-display journey. So, in this article, we’re going to take you through a comprehensive guide to multi-display technology, how it works, why we use it, and how it can benefit you!

So, whether you’re a tech whiz, or get confused at the sight of more than one monitor, settle in.


What is a multi-display wall?

A multi-display wall, also known as a video wall, is a surface of multiple monitors that display one or multiple coherent images. A multi-display wall’s total resolution is the sum total of each monitor’s individual resolution.

We can use multi-display walls in so many different ways too! Multi-display walls can be used in:

- Offices
- Education settings like lecture theatres
- Transportation settings
- Home
- Sports stadiums
- Music venues
- Museums

Essentially, multi-display technology can be applied to any setting where large amounts of information need to be distributed to lots of people. This helps to centralize the flow of information, providing everyone with the information they need at one time and less reliance on word of mouth.

How does it operate?

A multi display wall operates using a combination of different technologies. These consist of matrices, switches, multi display controllers and different types of monitors.

Controllers or processors process input signals to display content across the wall. Without controllers, users may not be able to produce effects or sophisticated AV projects and may be limited to simple uses.

Multi-display walls also typically consist of monitors made of different technologies. Let’s go through them:


LCD monitors are the most traditional type of multi-display wall and consists of panels placed together to form one giant screen. Although LCD walls produce a somewhat high-quality display, they do have boundaries that may disrupt the image or video. LCD panels also require the most amount of energy usage so are potentially less cost-effective.

Rear-projected cubes

Rear projected cubes combine display and projection in one screen to form a seamless display. This screen is made up of multiple cubes and may be most useful for large arenas or stadiums. Rear-projected cube-based walls are typically high quality and improve user experience.


LED walls produce high-quality, bright displays useful for users who wish to display single images. These video walls may be most successful in shop windows, large billboards or museums to display still images.

A big benefit of multi-display technology is that it can be completely customized to your individual needs. Your video wall kit is dependent on the requirements of your project, meaning you don’t need to invest in expensive or sophisticated technology if you don’t have to!

We do suggest making your technology decision based on your project needs, however, as this ensures that you can optimize your performance and get the most for your money.

Why are they important for your company?

Increased engagement

We all ignore our emails from time to time, but multi-display walls can eliminate the need for flooded inboxes. You can now send alerts, information, announcements or provide live updates from your video wall, keeping everyone in your office engaged and on task, and giving yourself peace of mind that everyone is up-to-date and not ignoring any messages!

Higher productivity

Communication is key to high productivity rates in an office environment, so its disruptive when productivity is stifled by breakdowns in communication and confusion. Multi-display technology allows you to broadcast important information, task delegation and updates from one centralized hub so everyone receives vital information at the same time.

Better conferencing capabilities

Let’s face it, conferences can feel like one big sleeping pill sometimes. There’s no shame in admitting that we’ve all nodded off from boredom in what feels like the world’s longest lecture. But multi-display technology now allows you to make conferencing an interactive experience with both remote and in-person attendees. You can now isolate parts of your screen to show different people, stream web-based content, have more visual aids or have an import movie or two.

Greater transparency

Have quite a big announcement to make but worried that news isn’t going to reach everyone? No problem. Multi-display walls can serve as your announcement hub and reaches wider audiences so no one suffers from FOMO or misinterpretation. This gives you greater control over what you decide to publicize and helps to streamline important information release for your colleagues.


Having multi-display technology in your office is almost guaranteed to turn some heads. It’s not superficial to say that having an impressive office benefits your business in so many ways, but multi-display technology gives clients and customers the impression that you take communication seriously at your business. A company that markets itself in such a way may open itself up to more income opportunities and raise its social profile.
