Video wall without breaking the bank?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
First post in this subforum.

How would one go about setting up a video wall without spending a million dollars?
The wall-size I'm looking to create is about 125cm by 200cm or something in that realm.

I haven't done anything like this before, and I'd really appreciate some input from people who are knowledgable on the subject.

You can get Dell / Samsung 1280 x 1024 19 inch monitors for less than $10 used.

Hi, thanks for the response.

It doesn't have to be ultra cheap, it's just that I checked out a couple of panasonic monitors specifically made to be part of a video wall, and they were seriously $10,000+ each.

I'd hope to get this rig up for less than like $4000 or so, if possible.

Thanks for the link. Pretty neat. I'm in Norway (Europe), so I might keep looking for other options that I can buy at a normal retailer first redface.gif
