Visualized: VIA’s versatile video wall signage solution (video)

VIA's video wall solution

VIA Technologies isn’t a name that often pops up on Engadget, but its latest video wall signage solution deserves a shout-out. The idea’s simple: you can output a 4K x 2K footage to an array of thin-bezel 1080p LCDs — powered by S3 Graphics cards — arranged in any way you like. While the Taiwanese company wasn’t keen to show off too much of its backend system, we were given a glimpse of its S3 MagicView software, which lets you easily fit one or multiple clips across a carefully aligned canvas corresponding to the LCDs. Check out our video after the break and you’ll get the idea.

(HTC and VIA are both chaired by Cher Wang, so it’s no surprise to see the latter displaying HTC ads for its signage demo. Wang’s husband, Wen-Chi Chen, is the President and CEO of VIA.)

A complete system similar to the above two — either with eight 46-inch panels or fifteen 42-inch panels — could cost between NT$3 million (about US$102,000) to NT$4 million (US$136,000), and it’s also available for rental. Unsurprisingly, VIA is targeting the likes of churches, schools, cinemas and shops with this video wall solution.
