What is The Best Display Technology for PowerWall Systems?

Posted by IGI. March 8, 2017 - PowerWall

Every company wants to leverage the best resources for their teams. Whether it’s an automotive company searching for the best tools for their design team or the government procuring new technology for its operations centers, they both want the absolute top of the line.

When it comes to displaying information on a large scale, organizations often ask advanced visualization integrators which technology is “best” for PowerWall systems. The truth is, there’s no universal “best.” Ultimately, the best technology is the one that best fits the needs of the organization. What’s right for an automotive company might not be right for a governmental agency.

For example, if an AV integrator told you that the Sony CLED was the absolute best technology for your company, their recommendation could be falling short, because part of an integrator’s job is to understand your needs and limitations to help guide the decision making process.

So, the question then becomes: What’s the best technology for your requirements? Here are several things to consider:

Know Your Limitations

Working with an advanced visualization integrator will determine your limitations. These limitations could include physical space, the number of users, how the technology will be used, the size of your models (both physical and data size), as well as your budget.

Keep in mind that the consultation process takes time -- and for good reason. It’s important for the integrator to truly understand what your organization needs and what you can afford. Then, plan for a comprehensive site survey that takes into consideration factors such as:

  • Projection and viewing room size
  • Existing AV systems
  • Facility construction
  • HVAC and electrical infrastructure
  • Audio and communications needs
  • Seating requirements
  • Accessibility and user ergonomics to optimize system performance

Start With The Basics

It’s not uncommon for companies adopting advanced visualization for the first time to “fake it ‘til they make it” when it comes to the new technology. But, this mentality can be dangerous. Being unclear about operating an advanced visualization system can quickly run a project off the rails. Remember, a major part of your AV integrator’s job is to help educate you on the technology, so leverage them as a resource.

The AV integration process is all about designing the best system to fit your needs, so your AV partner will want to hear what you know and help fill in the gaps. That way, they can speak your language and help you decide on the right PowerWall technology solution for your organization, whether that’s 4K projection, direct-view LED, or a Sony Canvas.
