In the terminals of a few airports I've been to (CLT, BOS, maybe YYZ?), I have seen screens playing video advertisements on the walls of the terminals that don't look like the typical LCD or plasma TV. They seem to consist of four rectangles arranged 2x2, essentially forming one "screen", with a small gap between each panel. There is no "frame" around each panel like a normal TV - I just appears to be four screens by themselves. Also, the panels appeared unusually bright. The image did not appear to be projected from elsewhere. What are these devices called?
There's an ad for the Chevy Volt in which a male-female couple is driving. The man connects his iPhone to the car, and asks Siri to read his voicemails. He then listens to one and is embarrassed by it. I've looked around, contacted Chevy and even their ad agency, but can't find video of this ad. The ad aired during The Daily Show online around Spring 2014. Sources anyone?

Now we’ve finally gotten our foot wedged into an advertiser’s door, but we don’t know how much to charge! [more inside]
