When TV Monitors were Used to Build Video Walls

Video Displays that were Created with Old TV Monitors

Recently we came across a picture of an old “video wall” setup. We don’t know the source, but we found it amusing how these screens used to be set up when this was the available technology. The technology we have today wasn’t available the way it is today, so people had to make due with what they had. It wasn’t quite as pretty, but the idea was similar.

This picture was from very early on, when mutliple TV monitors were put together to create a single, much larger video screen with one image. These are still fairly common to see, although the quality of monitor has much improved from these rounded tube TVs. Typically they are done with TV monitors with very small or even no frames to make the video image more seamless. You can frequently find these in bars, hotels, airports, restaurants, newsrooms, and much more. There are a few different ways that the image can be controlled or programmed to make a single picture span over multiple monitors.

Now, these kinds of video walls are commonly done using LED tiles. The LED technology is made to be put together simply with no visible seams to truly create one cohesive image. The LED tiles come in many different sizes, resolutions, and types, but can be built to custom shapes, sizes, and configurations. There is a lot more flexibility using these LED boards because that is what they are made to do. There is differing levels of programming and other equipment that can be used to create a unique video display.

At Fire Up Video, we have been working with these LED video tiles since we formed our business over ten years ago. We have a fleet of four mobile jumbotrons built from LED tiles to create a single screen in a mobile LED trailer. We also have a large inventory of LED tiles that are used to build custom video boards for rent at events through a company called Fire Up Creative.
