The LED video wall market is in a growth phase as an alternative to LCD based large canvases. This paper contributes to industry body of knowledge on the opportunity to optimize the LED compute architecture for the mainstream market through key tenants of an open‐industry standard and commercial‐off‐the‐shelf product approach. With the LED market being in a growth phase this motivates a look at the compute architecture which drives such displays. A key adjacent market trend is how AV over IP is replacing domain specific protocols and more vendors adopt a software approach – both trends can be considered for application to the LED compute architecture. Four key challenges are summarized from a look at the current LED compute architecture and a template new architecture shown to explore answers to these challenges. The methodology of an incubation effort to explore this architecture is described leveraging the open‐source Intel® Media Transport Library to use SMPTE ST 2110 as a building block. Project findings are correlated back to the key challenges and reflect the tenants mentioned above. The next steps include practical considerations for product readiness.
