MAKE BRICK AND MORTAR RETAIL AN EXPERIENCE WITH INTERACTIVITY AND ENGAGEMENT
It’s no secret that retail sales at brick and mortar stores are losing ground every year to online shopping. With the ongoing pandemic, brick and mortar retail is hurting even more and may experience more fallout. Is physical retail dying? No, but just as technology has reshaped the shopping experience online, technology can invigorate the physical shopping experience too.
While shopping for sundries and household needs might be easier to do online, shopping for fashion, cosmetics, and other fine goods that appeal to more than the visual sense is still a more pleasurable experience in person. In Scottsdale, shopping centers like the Fashion Square, Kierland Commons, and more cater to an upscale shopping experience. But retailers may need to adopt solutions to create more differentiated shopping opportunities in-store to get people away from screens at home.
What might be such a solution? Interestingly enough, it involves more screens, big screens, and many of them. Read on for suggestions on how to liven up physical shopping settings in Scottsdale with video wall displays.

Video walls are a coordinated set of displays used for specific applications. Given that security monitoring in a commercial or operations environment typically involves multiple feeds, security and surveillance is an excellent application for LED video walls. One reason why is that it can be much easier to route video signals to multiple smaller displays than multiplexing them onto a single large display.
This blog will cover some ways multi-screen video walls can enable some novel approaches to security monitoring in your Tempe, AZ, operation. Keep reading for more!
VIDEO WALLS AREN’T JUST FOR SHOW
No doubt you may have seen a video wall somewhere. Perhaps in a sports bar, where a big game is matrixed on a wall composed of multiple display screens. While that is an excellent use – more on that later – video walls are useful in many scenarios.
If you think that video walls are expensive, there certainly are over-the-top implementations that can be so. However, with the current cost of displays, control technology, and software, it's not difficult to build a cost-effective solution that generates a ROI.
You’ve probably had a good chuckle at a broadcast TV blooper reel or on-air faux pas because there’s something funny about someone tripping over their tongue on live TV. But having the wrong technology in your broadcast TV studio or multimedia communications center is no laughing matter. To stay competitive in today’s television broadcast market, you have to offer more than two anchors sitting behind a desk or a lone reporter broadcasting from the red carpet. Modern video walls that display maps, statistics, photos, and videos can help capture viewers’ attention while providing anchors, hosts, and reporters with some variety in the way they present information. But the wrong video wall can distract viewers and cause them to reach for the remote. So how do you choose the right video wall solution for your broadcast and multimedia communications needs? Here are six important considerations to get you started.
WONDERING IF YOU NEED A VIDEO WALL? HERE ARE 3 WAYS YOU’LL BENEFIT
There are lots of ways to make a bad first impression on a potential customer or employee—have mustard on your shirt, a funny smell in your office, or outdated technology solutions that don’t always work. Alternately, you can make a good impression with clean clothes, a bright, inviting (and smell-free) office space, and modern technology solutions. And what if those technology solutions could not only make you look good but also help you meet your business goals and increase your revenue? For that kind of result, consider a video wall.
Once confined to company lobbies, secretive government command centers and science fiction movies, video walls are becoming increasingly commonplace across multiple industries including retail, higher education and utility and traffic monitoring applications. And that’s just the beginning. According to a recent industry forecast, the global LED video wall market is set to grow at a compound annual rate of 35.1 percent, reaching $73.51 billion by 2025. If you’re thinking of jumping on the bandwagon, here are some trends to watch—and some important considerations to keep in mind.
The adage “You only get one chance to make a first impression” is just as true with places as it is people. Whether it’s a hotel, a student library, or a lobby, what we feel the moment we walk in often translates into an opinion—the hotel deal was too good to be true, I can’t see myself at this college, this company feels too corporate. And that opinion influences the decision that happens next—I’m booking a different hotel, I’m attending the other college, I’m selecting a different provider. Creating an impression that is true to your brand and your mission takes more than a skilled interior designer—it takes technology. Video walls deliver more than an impression—they create an experience. The success of video walls at stopping retail shoppers in their tracks, creating a high-end feel in hotels, helping hospital patients and visitors find their way, engaging students in learning, and delivering relevant information to lobby visitors is the reason the adoption of this solution continues to increase at impressive rates.
