Hey guys,
We are wanting to install about 8 large TVs to create a sort of network operations area in our office. This is mainly to show monitoring for our various IT systems and infrastructure etc.

Buying the TVs is easy, setting them up is a bit harder! We would probably need poles that are bolted directly into our concrete floor which could hold 2x screens. They would then need some mounting system. For the screens I was looking at the Soniq 48" from JB Hifi which seem pretty cheap.

Anyone recommend a company to talk to about this kind of stuff? Ideally we need them to bolt the mounts to the floor also. Wall mount is pretty much out of the question as the wall they back onto is just a partition.

This is the kind of idea:

Don't go with cheap panels if these are going to be on all the time, they wont last.

Spend the money and buy digital display panels not consumer grade TVs.

Hmm OK yea didn't think about that. Do u suggest a model?

I went to the master control room at Sky recently and noticed they seem to use consumer TVs (they must have 30+ on a wall). With the way the price shifts it might be cheaper just to repalce them all every year if they die?

Anyway I saw these mounting poles:

Look pretty good. Will try to find a NZ distributor of something similar

Something like this

My place of employment has been replacing LCD TV's in meeting rooms and used around the building for various monitoring dashboards with digital signage panels, as the TVs just don't last with heavy usage and were too much of a pain when something went wrong.

In meeting rooms they are great as they turn on and off when you connect or disconnect via HDMI/DisplayPort, so no need to find remotes.
