Video Walls - How Do You Do It ?

So I had the pleasure of visiting the ISE last week and I was drewling the whole day.
Videowalls! Videowalls everywhere!

I mainly went there cause my knowledge regarding videowalls are limited, as in the past we only ever used single monitors. But with our IP installations becoming bigger and bigger I get more and more request for bigger presentation.

I was quite pleased to see all these products there. I noticed a difference in videowalls made by multiple LCD monitors with slim brezels, gigantic single LCD monitors (105"!), LCD Panel walls or Beamers.
Now personally I don't think using giant LCD Monitors or Beamers would be smart in a control center. Mainly due to a giant LCD is costly to replace, and beamers never give the same brightness a LCD can.

The LCD panel walls were quite intresting to see. They seem to have longer life then monitors, but have less detail close up. I'm at a loss what the main differences between this and Monitor video walls is tho.

What are your personal experiances regarding this ? Have you build videowalls in the past, and ifso, how ?
