Jim and Raj Jain are the father and son team from ICC.

ICC is one of’s largest trading partners. In this photo, Jim and Raj are standing in front of a 9 panel video wall that is worth over six figures yet rents for less than five.

Video walls are the ultimate in plasma display technology. Each panel is equal to a 42″ plasma flat screen without the bezel.

The most common configuration is with 4 of these panels, but any number of panels can be used in conjunction with one another. Yes you could do an entire wall with these panels.
