Question ID: 371548
I recently was asked to put together a video wall that was donated to
a non-profit organization.  The video wall is made up of 9 Pioneer
rm-v2400na projection cubes:

It has a Knox Video rs8x8 routing switcher:

and a lanetco vm-1000 Video Mirage video wall processor:

There are a lot of other components, but those are the most important (I think).

What I am looking for are some instructions on how to put together a
video wall.  I am the type of person that needs to know the why behind
the components.  But not in an extreme technical way.
I am trying to find an overview of putting together a video wall, what
the different components do and how they all work together.  From this
information I hope to figure out the components I have and how they
work together to create the video wall.

I am also looking for software that I can use to run the video wall,
but that is not my major concern at this point.

Thank you for your time.

Something like that is what I'm looking for!

It's the diagrams and terminoligy that was holding me back and this
article helps me understand the complete solution.

If you remember the query that you typed into Google, I would
appreciate knowing what it was.  I'm constantly learning how to
improve my searching via Google.

Thank you for your time.

Glad it works for you!

Here's another site that may be helpful; it's a site dedicated to the
topic of using multiple monitors:

Multiple Monitor Industry

I used a variety of search terms for this question, but the one that
unlocked that one link was the following:

"video wall" "white paper"

(the quotation marks are very important)

Perhaps "Wincube" by Intelligent Technologies Labs would be a viable
option for software to run the Video Wall; it's billed as having "Full
Pioneer CRT Engine" setup:

Other search terms used:
  "video wall software"
  assembling "video wall"
  installing "video wall"
  installation "video wall"
  "video wall is"

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

Thank you,
