How to Choose Between a Video Wall, TV & Projector for Events

How to Choose Between a Video Wall, TV & Projector for Events

 

sales and marketing event rentals

Compare display rentals to see which is right for your event.

A video wall may be right for you if...

  • Your budget is ~$10,000 or more
  • You want the most modern, impressive looking display  available
  • You want the ability to show separate images on each panel AND one seamless image
  • You need a big solution that  is brought in smaller pieces and assembled onsite
  • Your audience is 100-250 people

TV rental for meetings and events

 

A large monitor / TV may be right for you if...

  • Your budget is ~$2,000  or more
  • You want a lower cost display that still looks professional
  • You only want to show  one image / video at a time
  • You can get a large monitor into the space (through doorways or elevators)
  • Your audience is  25-150 people

Video Wall vs. TV

An 80" or 90" monitor is very large display in its own right and a great budget alternative. To put things in perspective though, the display area of a 3x3 video wall  is ~10' x 5.7' (equal to a  138' monitor) and a 4x4 video wall  is ~13.5' x 7.5' (equal to a  184' monitor). If you're worried a single TV won't be enough, renting multiple monitors is a another option and also allows you to display unique content on each one.

A projector & screen may be right for you if...

  • Your budget is ~$1,000 or more  (higher for commercial projectors)
  • You don't mind having the image separate from the video source
  • You're able to keep the projector path clear of obstructions (foot traffic, shadows)
  • You want the ability to show  any image configuration
  • You need a solution that  is flexible for any size space or audience

Video Wall vs. Projector

Comparing a video wall to a projector isn't as simple and depends more on the environment and layout of the event. In general, a video wall rental will produce a much higher quality image with much greater contrast. However, a projector and screen could be a great solution for any size event as long as there isn't ambient light to interfere with the projection. Alternatively,  a video wall will look bright and clear in both dark and well lit scenarios.
