Without question, LED is the best way to create visual impact. It's the most versatile display option available, allowing for enormous displays, at very high brightness with wide viewing angles and no bezels like a traditional video wall.
LED walls can be customised to suit any space, allowing for abnormal sizes and layouts. Curved displays are also possible using specific panels and mounting products.
Combining an LED video wall with signage management systems from AVXI can create a fully managed solution with a stunning effect.
LED Video Wall vs LCD Video Wall
LCD Video Walls use a number of 'thin-bezel' displays, all joined together to form one large image. These can be incredibly effective, but they don't fit all scenarios.
LED technology has the following benefits:
- No bezels - The screen is made up from many LED panels that have no bezels and are therefore seamless.
- Fully customisable - Nearly any shape and size can be made.
- Suitable for outdoor - Some LED products are capable of running outdoors and are therefore perfect for outdoor advertising, stadiums and large scale signage
- Brightness to suit - The brightness of the displays can be custom to suit the environment
- Consistant Image - LED panels are all calibrated to match each other, providing uniform brightness, contrast and colour across the whole display. Usually being driven from a single source reduces the possiblity of 'tearing' effects and distortion that can occur with LCD video walls.
A very common question that comes up when discussing LED is 'What pixel pitch do I need?', or more often 'What is pixel pitch?'
Pixel Pitch is the measurement between pixels on an LED display. These gaps are measured in millimeters.
A lower number pixel pitch means smaller gaps between pixels, which means higher resolution and crisper, sharper images.
So a lower pixel pitch is better right? Not necessarily. There are 3 main points to consider when choosing the right LED
- Viewing Distance
- Content Resolution
The distance of the viewer from your display, factoring in the content that you wish to show, dictates the size the display needs to be in order to view your content properly.
As a general rule, you can divide horizontal size of your screen (in feet) by 6.3 to get your required pixel pitch.
So if you have a 18 foot wide display: 18 / 6.3 = 2.85. One typical pixel pitch produced is 2.9 so this would fit. But we also need to consider the viewing distance which at this pitch would be comfortable around 5.5m. If your viewing distance is closer, you'll need a finer pixel pitch. The smaller the pixel pitch, the higher the price so this needs to be carefully considered when choosing the right display.
Of course, there are many other factors to consider with LED, so why not give us a call to discuss your project in more detail
