How To Choose The Right LED Screen
If you need to choose the LED Screen for your business, you need a careful planning and consideration to choose the best option for your needs. In this quick guide, we have tried to explain the basics of LED Screen and LED Screens to help you for better decision. However, the most important step to decide about an electronic sign is consulting with an expert supplier company to advise you about available product for your specific needs. We recommend you to fill out the online quotation form and our LED experts will get back to you with the best available products and solution for your specific needs.
What is an LED Screen?
LED Screen or led screen is an electronic sign consists of a matrix of individual LED lights (LED pixels) that make image, text or video together. LED pixels are placed very close together and from relatively far distance the eyes won’t be able to see the gap between the pixels result in an acceptable image quality with minimum pixilation. Compare to LCD digital signage (like TV), led signs and LED Screens provide lower resolution due to lower number of pixels. But, brightness and colour production is much more eye-catching which is necessary for outdoor and behind the window digital signage.
LED Screen age's most significant aspect is viewing distance. When people in the car driving quickly see your sign from a long distance then you need a large size of the character to make it readable. As a rule of the tomb, for every 100 ft of viewing distance you need at least 2 inches of character height to make it readable. You can need bigger size for full-color sign with picture and video support to make a better impression on the audience.
Traffic pattern is another significant factor in the scale of the digital signage. You can select smaller size with higher resolution (pixel pitch) if your sign is viewed in by people in relatively near distance (like shopping centres).
Advertising content often depends on the scale of the digital signage. If you want to use only LED screen scrolling text, you can select the minimum height of the characters. So if you want to have a full-color LED screen to have an eye-catching LED screen with image, background and video support then you need to make it bigger to have more room for image, background and other animated object on your digital LED screen.
Pixel Pitch and resolution
Pixel pitch is center to center distance of pixels. The shorter pixel pitch the higher resolution. Viewing distance is the main factor to decide about the pixel pitch. For normal indoor LED Screen with image and video support P6 LED modules (6mm pitch) is a standard resolution. However, in some case required high resolution or very close viewing distance P4 LED modules (4mm pitch) is recommended. For outdoor application P8 or P10 (8mm and 10mm pixel pitch) for short viewing distance and P16 modules (16mm pitch) for far viewing distance are mostly used.
Synchronous control cards
Each form of control LED card requires a computer device to view advertisement media on LED screen. This sort of control card is ideal for applications where you need to adjust your display media very frequently or you need to show tons of media (like large outdoor TVs or big billboards) on it. There are various Network, Wi-Fi or GPRS solutions for synchronous control cards.
Asynchronous control cards
Like the synchronous control cards, there's no need for asynchronous control cards to control any device. Both advertising media are stored in internal memory, and then the control card is played according to the schedule. This form of control card is ideal for applications that do not need to be changed every day, such as business LED screens, led school signs, behind the LED screen panel. This kind of control card is available with the option USB, cable, Wi-Fi or GPRS.
LED Screen Power Consumption Electricity Cost
One of the most important items to remember when purchasing an LED panel or LED screen is power usage and the continuing costs of energy. Especially when it comes to outdoor LED screens with high brightness, the electricity consumption is more of a concern. One of the questions that we're frequently asked is how often LED screens absorb electricity? We need to know the electricity consumption of every pixel and the number of pixels in the LED screen to address this issue.
