When It Comes to Video Walls, Bigger is Better

  • PDF

The VWPOP85 pop-out universal multi-screen video wall mount has been a large success for Edbak. A big part of the reason for its success is…well, how large it is.

Edbak VWPOP85

This unit is built to handle those 42 inch to 85 inch screens, up to 80 kilos of display. These are the sorts of screens you use to build impressive, room-filling and lobby-filling video walls.

While large itself, the VWPOP85 universal video wall mount weighs only 14kg. It is designed and manufactured in Europe and carries all the leading certifications, including TUV Rhineland. It is fully VESA compliant.

With size and certifications on its resume, it needed only one more quality to move it up to a best-in-class mounting solution: a patented one-touch pop-out mechanism for access and service to each display in the video wall.

The patented Fast Release Pop-out mechanism in the VWPOP design makes it easy to deliver recessed multi-screen installations. The simple one touch “pop out” mechanism allows full extension of the display—it swings out of the video wall where access and servicing can be performed quickly and safely.

LG and Sony Build Speakers Directly in OLED Panel

  • PDF

LG and Sony reveal what is essentially the same idea at CES 2017-- OLED TVs with speakers built right into the display panel. LG dubs the technology "Crystal Sound," while its Japanese rival calls it "Acoustic Surface."

LG Crystal SoundThe concept for the technology is based on the wafer-thin nature of OLED panels. A pair of tiny speaker drivers can deliver audio signals to the panel, causing it to vibrate in order to produce sound. The two companies claim the result is more immersive than traditional TV speakers, since the sound comes directly from the screen, as opposed to from below or beside it.
