Much like a planogram indicates where the placements of retail products should be:

    plan·o·gram
    ˈplanəˌɡram/
    noun
    a diagram or model that indicates the placement of retail 
products on shelves in order to maximize sales.

The link above shows a diagram of clothing arrangements on a wall. Instead of products, think video feed sources.

Could the same word be used to indicate the placement of video feeds on a video wall?

For example, security desk video screens are divided up into however many video feeds exist, and can be resized, or placed in a customized arrangement.

Planogram as well?

  • Are you talking about the arrangement itself or do you mean the model or plan of the arrangement? – chasly from UK Sep 4 '15 at 15:58
  • Hi, I am referring to the plan of the arrangement. The arrangement can be modified to suit whatever the user likes. Updated question as well. – ElHaix Sep 4 '15 at 16:14
  • In my opinion there is nothing to stop you adopting the term. It seems reasonable. However the word isn't very well-known, at least outside of retail. – chasly from UK Sep 4 '15 at 16:23

You may need something more specific, and you're also probably aware of the term, but I'm not sure any other term would accurately describe what you're referencing.

I would go for juxtaposition, saying "the way the video sources are juxtaposed" a good option to me.

This term is used frequently in art critiques to describe how objects are placed within a photograph, but the technical definition of juxtaposition is:

  1. an act or instance of placing close together or side by side, especially for comparison or contrast.

  2. the state of being close together or side by side
