DLP and LED Video Walls

Americon Visionmaster DLP lamp and LED illuminated DLP video walls are modular, self-contained rear projection display systems with interlocking rear projection cubes utilizing Digital Light Processing (DLP), or Light Emitting Diodes (LED) as light sources. These video walls have custom cabinetry that can be made as large as your space allows and can be expanded as your needs change. The Visionmaster is a cost-effective tool for emergency dispatch, network operations, utility management, traffic management, process control, security control and boardrooms.

More About DLP-LED Video Wall Technology

DLP (Digital Light Processing) video walls are comprised of interlocking rear projection cubes with a video processor. Rear projection cubes, sometimes referred to as “a projector in a box”, are shallow relative to their height and width thus providing a small footprint. For example, a projection cube with 50” screen size is only 18” deep. As the screen sizes increase the depth also increases, however the footprint remains small relative to screen size. Projection cubes are available in both 3:4 and 16:9 screen aspect ratios. DLP projection means lamps, and lamps have to be replaced. However, lamp life for modern projection cubes is around 9,000 hours. If your operation is 7/24, then lamp life is more important than for conference rooms, or any other venue that’s not used every day. Simplicity of maintenance is considered a plus for DLP technology. Unlike LCD technology that has a finite life, projection cubes can last indefinitely by just changing the lamps. The projection cube is still considered the “work horse” of the control room world when it comes to large videowalls, or requirements for the highest resolution and thinnest frames.

LED (Light Emitting Diodes) video walls are also comprised of interlocking rear projection cubes combined with a video processor. The fundamental difference between DLP and LED projection cubes is the light source. Otherwise, the physical characteristics of DLP projection cubes are basically the same. LED illuminated DLP technology, although relatively new to the market, has quickly taken hold for 7/24 applications. There are no lamps to change and the LED illumination system is rated at 60,000 hours, or about 6 years at half brightness, which is considered the median lifetime rating. There are also cost considerations as well as performance differences between DLP and LED. LED cubes cost significantly more than DLP cubes and the eventual LED illumination system replacement is also relatively expensive. However, there are no lamps to buy and LED illumination technology has less fluctuation of brightness and color compared to lamps. LED requires less attention and maintenance than its DLP cousin, but costs more to buy. Which of these cube technologies is best for you? It simply comes down to your application and budget.

DLP Rear Projection Cube
Video wall processors also referred to as controllers, are the "brains" of the video wall system. The processor is a sophisticated computer that displays a Windows desktop mirroring what you'd see on your computer. The processor accepts a variety of inputs and fundamentally allows the operator to select from those sources, size and place them anywhere on the entire video wall in a consistent and intuitive way.
