* When Sky Television began broadcasting to Britain in 1989 they set up some advertising displays with multiple screens in public places. What they apparently forgot was that Sky receivers could only receive ''one channel at a time'', so all the screens had to show the same thing.
* Some cable company headquarters have a giant wall of monitors showing every channel they provide. This is so that when someone calls in who's having trouble with their service, the employee can just look up and instantly see what's supposed to be on the channel they're talking about.
* The control room of Minatur Wunderland, a large model railroad in Hamburg, has a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PZkSYv7BLl8 control room]] with about a hundred screens for five operators.
* It's been said that President UsefulNotes/LyndonJohnson has a special TV with three screens made so that he could watch all of the major news networks at once. It only played the sound from one screen at a time, though.
** His contemporary, Music/ElvisPresley, just bought three ordinary televisions and sat them next to each other.
* Television [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Master_control master control]] rooms contain a bunch of video monitors that show multiple cameras/feeds.
* BP released a poorly photoshopped [[http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/07/20/bps-photoshopped-command_n_652633.html image]] of their control room during the Deepwater Horizon blowout.
* [[http://www.barco.com/~/media/Images/References/2013/Belgacom/Barco_Belgacom_videowall_20121220-48%20jpg.jpg?mh=900&mw=900 Network Operations Centers]], whether for large telecoms or datacenters, are the ultimate expression of this concept. Most have dozens, and possibly over a hundred, different large screens plastered over every single inch wall space, with desks having dozens more. They show everything from individual machine consoles to network traffic flow, call volumes and destinations, potential intrusion alerts, power issues, HVAC status, to trending of any of a hundred different metrics. Small [=NOCs=] will have less than a dozen people in them; large ones up to a hundred.
* Traffic control centers for major metropolitan areas are this, combined with TheBigBoard. They will have one or two very large screens (often floor-to-ceiling or close to it) showing the entire region's traffic flow, then dozens of other wall-mounted screens displaying individual traffic cameras and smaller neighborhood details.
* [[Creator/MontyOum Monty Oum's]] standard work setup involved a huge number of screens, at which he seemed to be both watching inspiration material and [[{{Workaholic}} working on multiple things at once]].
* Chinese package delivery giant Alibaba created a 24-hour TV special for November 11th, 2015[[note]]November 11th is a major shopping day in China for people to buy Christmas gifts, quite similar to Black Friday in the United States[[/note]] whose background, although it was one big screen, functioned as a wall of monitors divided into various stats, updates, and the occasional live transmission. In front of the big screen were presentations, interviews, and performances with Alibaba's founder as its host. Rather than something ominous, however, this TV special presented itself as something glorious, as it was practically one big infomercial with guest stars like Creator/DanielCraig and Creator/KevinSpacey talking about discounts and bargains available from Alibaba on that day only.
* The control centres of space agencies around the world, like [[https://rmglennon.files.wordpress.com/2012/08/dscn0917.jpg the one at NASA's JPL]], while hopefully not ominous, certainly do qualify, with usually one or multiple large screens taking up an entire wall and rows of consoles.
