    Hi everyone, please excuse my lack of knowledge about AV.
    I am currently planning an event which will be held after one year. There will be a lot of activities during the event and therefore I'd like to have 4 video walls in the middle of the venue. The venue is quite large so each screen/wall/display needs to be about a 100 inches.
    Can you please recommend all available solutions? Should I buy large TVs or video panels?
    Thank you in advance?

    I'm not an expert, but I believe the general considerations would be:

    1. How bright are the surroundings? The average indoor display can be washed out and generally look terrible outdoors, especially on a bright day in summer. You may need outdoor/sunlight readable displays with brighter backlights.

    2. How close will people get to it? You can use LED panels and other lower resolution screens if nobody's going to get close, if you people people to be arm's length away then you'll need a higher DPI screen.

    3. What device is generating the picture and can it handle the screens itself? If it's something like a PC then it'll be relatively simple to drive four high resolution screens. If it's something more specialist/limited then you may need to buy expensive additional hardware to take the signal and output it across the screens.
