Are you always on the lookout for new technology that could transform the way your business operates? Video walls might just be the solution you’re after. Putting it simply, video walls comprise several large screens that are separated by narrow bezels, which allow the screens to appear as one large screen. The advantage of video walls is that the screens can be used together as one but also as separate screens with each showing different displays simultaneously. Here are some ways that the development of video walls can help transform your company’s training delivery:
1. Change content easily
With video wall technology, the need for pamphlets, training booklets and posters – not to mention the logistical details and expenditures associated with acquiring these materials – are eliminated. Information can be updated daily if needed and easily uploaded to the many screens available for displaying content. This lets you adapt lesson content and tailor training material to the specific needs of your clients without any hassle. Although this can be done with a regular full-size screen, a video wall offers the added possibility of displaying real-time updates and important messages along with regular content. Video walls transform your training delivery by making it easy to change and update content as required.
2. Display multiple content at once
A video wall allows you to display different high-resolution screens and thanks to the narrow bezels that separate the screens, content is still clearly visible. The ability to display content simultaneously opens up a new and easier way to display lots of information, detailed graphics and extensive flow charts all at once. For example, a video wall consisting of sixteen screens will allow you to display at least sixteen slides of content at full size and high resolution – and even more if you decide to place several slides per screen. At last, a solution to that endless task of switching back and forth between screens to explain a concept! A video wall with multiple displays makes your training delivery more efficient and streamlined.
3. Interactive learning
Interactive technology is on the rise. Static educational resources such as textbooks are increasingly pushed aside in favour of interactive learning materials such as tablets, computers and even cell phones. A video wall with interactive touchscreen capabilities adds a new dimension to training delivery and helps keep the focus of clients by means of learning through doing. It also gives the impression that your company is modern and in touch with the most recent developments in your industry. Video walls transform your learning methods through interactive displays that enhance the sensory and visual aspects of learning.
4. Remote management
Imagine providing a trainer with the ability to phone in on Skype and offer an interactive class on a multi-display video wall all from a remote area. With video walls, training delivery becomes a whole new game. Content for a video wall can be managed securely from any location worldwide to reduce fees associated with activities such as opening new business locations, project management and covering transport costs for instructors that need to be brought in from other areas of the world. Maintenance of the video wall can be outsourced to a local service provider to ensure that walls are set up correctly and fixed as soon as problems occur. Video walls can transform your business by making it possible to deliver quality training from remote locations while cutting costs.
As video wall technology continues to be developed, there will undoubtedly be many more ways that training delivery can be made easier, faster and more cost-efficient. Although a sizeable initial investment is required to set up a video wall for your company, this technology is set to replace traditional training delivery methods and will surely offer great returns on investment in the long run.
