Video Markets
Welcome
Ma king big better
The last twelve months have seen
a significant increase in the sales
and number of videowall projects
across a diverse range of verticals,
including retail, corporate,
broadcast, and the replacement
of older technologies in control
rooms. Statistics show that in
the next three years the videowall
market as a whole will increase
by 60 – 70%*. Videowalls are
supported using the technical
knowledge of the Midwich Group
working together with you.

Things to consider when specifying a videowall
• Does it meet your customers’ requirements in respect of the
content that is displayed? Is the resolution correct?
• Can it work within the constraints of the videowall’s location
and operating environment? Consider brightness, space, clearance
and outside elements.
• Cost - does it fall within your customer’s budget? Look at
purchase, lease, rental and total cost of ownership.
• How will it be displayed? Select the appropriate mounting solution
from our vast range of brackets and stands.
Technical AV
Retail
Airports, bus and train
stations are an abundance
of information and noise,
where the need for clear
information is key to a
smooth running operation.
This, in turn, opens up a large
and varied customer base for
videowall technology.
Customers in retail will
benefit enormously from
the impact of a videowall
display. Using this
technology at both point
of sale and before-hand, a
good display can attract and
inform purchasing decisions.
Benefitting students and
teachers alike, videowalls
provide the ideal solution in
education environments,
displaying concerts, sports
and entertainment – as well
as being a high-impact
message board.
Videowalls can also act as guides to attract
traffic to pre-identified points. Content can be
managed centrally and changed instantly from
participating outlets, giving total output control
to your customers.
Reach out to students with emergency
bulletins, class notices, interactive registration
and event promotions. Speak to Midwich today
about the many benefits of videowalls in
education environments.
Videowalls are an effective means of conveying
important passenger information such as check-in
desks and directions. The technology also lends itself
perfectly as an excellent advertising medium in duty
free areas and departure lounges.
• Is your customer supported in the long term? Have you discussed
an SLA with your customer? Or extended warranties?

Transportation
Corporate
Command and Control
Large displays are today a
widely accepted standard
for displaying business
information. A corporate
reception will often carry
a large format display
showing a day’s
information about the
business as well as latest news.
Command and Control
rooms demand clear,
common instruction and
videowalls provide an
excellent central point of
information.
Meeting room scheduling, as well as directions
to specific conference areas are regularly
presented via videowalls and used in reception
areas, they are a great medium to impress and
inform visitors.
★
Whether used in command
hubs of emergency services or the inner sanctum
of a transport logistics business, videowalls are an
ideal point of reference for who, and what, is
where. Midwich has a range of solutions to suit
even the most demanding environment.
Education
Super Call Centres
A well run, well organised
call centre is more
productive and, ultimately,
more profitable. Customers
investing in a videowall
solution will have a large,
reliable, display solution
where all relevant details
are available to all.
As Super Call Centres become more popular as
organisations aim to merge and reduce costs, the
demand for quality videowalls is expected to
increase. Speak to Midwich about the numerous
options available.

The walls are fed from a Dexon processor
which has eight Full HD outputs with four
going to each wall. Each feed is then put into an
Atlona HDCP compliant splitter and then the
NEC inbuilt tile matrix technology was used
to show only ¼ of the full HD input.
The HD input was spread across four screens
giving 960x540 on each screen. The main
aim for this job was to keep the costs as minimal
as possible but still with impressive results. To
supply a single Full HD signal to each screen
just wasn’t in the budget of the customer.
Four ceiling speakers were also installed along
each wall as part of the job, this ensured
customers coming into the shop were able to
hear the audio clearly whilst walking through.
The walls were used to show the latest client
information, advertisements and relevant
company information. Both walls show the
same information but can run independently
if required.

using number plate capture for vehicle monitoring, education facilities utilising real
