Futuresource study suggests exponential growth in videowall usage
In its fifth Global Videowall report Futuresource Consulting has established that the videowall sector grew by 19 percent in 2014, with around 536,000 units now in use throughout the market.
With a demand for increasingly narrow bezels coupled with a rise in demand for verticals in retail, broadcast and leisure settings, narrow pixel-pitch LED is anticipated to make up 31 percent of the value of the videowall market by 2019.
"The early disruptive impact from [narrow pixel-pitch] LED has been clear with the competitive landscape changing dramatically across 2014 –15, as display vendors increasingly include the technology in their line-ups," elaborates Chris Mcintyre-Brown, associate director of displays and broadcast equipment at Futuresource.
"The burning question has been: to what extent it will impact existing tiled display options? [Narrow pixel-pitch] will certainly take market share, but there are plenty of opportunities to allow technologies to co-exist together, typically dictated by specific performance advantages and vertical market demands."
