Digital Signage FAIL: A missing piece of the Video Wall
Like a puzzle, a missing screen of a Video Wall makes the picture incomplete. Video Walls are quite hard to manage if you don’t have the right software and hardware. Here’s a picture of video wall with a faulty screen.

Monitoring – if you have a background in IT, you would know how critical it is to monitoring your devices. Digital Signage hardware should be treated in the same category. Use a monitoring tool to check the status of the screen and your player. Poll the status of the screen by using “ping” or the port used by the application
For commercial screens, they should support RS232 or RJ45 remote management. Make sure you connect the screen to the network so you can remotely manage it.
Maintenance – perform regular checks to ensure the system is operating
