What is the Difference Between Indoor LED Screen Display and Outdoor LED Screen Display Products?

LED billboards, LED screens and nearly all LED items are becoming ever more popular. Driven shows are a major part of modern industry. The future of the LED show market is very promising, due to its unique characteristics. High brightness, low power consumption and long shelf life make LED displays more beneficial than early LCD displays. Having said that, the function of graphic display and the function of real-time display are two important features that increase the popularity of LED displays.

Diverse application of LED screen display

Driven show is a cutting-edge interactive device. Basically, businesses use these impressive LED billboards and LED screens to interact with consumers. Such displays will also serve the educational and awareness-raising purpose. Note, though, that not one single LED panel is a jack of all trades. It simply means the LED sign is intended for a particular reason. Related LED signs are not valid indoors or outdoors. Hence, please decide your specifications carefully, and then choose the appropriate LED panel.

Basically we divide the display on the LED screen into two categories. 1) Indoor LED screen 2) Outdoor LED screen. In all respects the two categories are distinct. And we'll be addressing every difference one by one.


Appearance is one of the obvious differences between indoor LED screen display and outdoor screen display which you can easily distinguish. The larger one is used for outdoor use. Because of their large size, they 're often used in stadiums and outdoor celebrations as highway billboards. Indoor LED screens are commonly used in worship centres, schools, conference rooms, restaurants , shopping centers and retail outlets.

Point of density

Because outdoor screens extend capacity approaches hundreds or even thousands of square meters compared with indoor screens, the density point is still fairly small.


Brightness is without question one of the major distinctions between the LED display indoors and the LED display outdoors. An outdoor display's brightness is multiple times that of an indoor LED screen, or you might say the brightness is tens of times that of an indoor LED screen. Just imagine, what happens when we put out a normal LED screen? The content is just barely visible. Appears uncomfortable darkness, which would certainly irritate the public. Strong sunlight may cause reading difficulties or decrease LED indicator brightness. Therefore, outdoor LED displays are equipped with many bright LEDs in one pixel to provide ultra-high brightness. Since indoor signs have no pressure to resist external weather fluctuations, their brightness is weak by default.

Adaptability to external weather conditions

Global warming is hitting our planet seriously. We therefore find ourselves in extreme weather conditions, namely high temperatures and extreme rainfall. This condition can not stop commercial ads, of course. Instead, engineers and technicians are developing the system for LED weather resistance. Reliable digital display manufacturers design and produce high quality outdoor LED displays. Engineers also know the highly leak-proof, water-proof, dust-proof, sun-proof, light-proof and high-temperature resistant outdoor LED displays should be. The barrier level of an indoor LED display varies from an outdoor display. Outdoor LED screens typically have a waterproof rating of IP65 whereas indoor screens have a waterproof rating of IP20.

We do have another form of semi-outdoor display, in addition to ordinary indoor and outdoor LED displays. We can be found conveniently in open rooms, eaves, and even under skylights or even in outdoor canopies. Please note, though, that while this semi-outdoor screen has the same ultra-high brightness as an outdoor LED display, it can't well withstand the heat.

Pixel pitch

Pixel pitch is another distinguishing factor between indoor and outdoor displays. Indoor displays have close pixel pitch. However, the pixel pitch requirements of outdoor screens are relatively low.

display resolution

Outdoor LED screen displays are devices that are used purposefully. Therefore, they need to be viewed from a greater distance than indoors. Therefore, the resolution of outdoor displays is low. Remember, outdoor displays will never compromise visibility. On the contrary, since the distance between the viewer and the indoor LED screen is small, the resolution needs to be higher. Higher resolution is expected to obtain the best image quality.

Large display project

Outdoor LED screens are usually used in places and activities requiring the display of a large number of brand advertisements. Why, then? Why? Since they are capable of giving rich full color and very high brightness. Are you aware that outdoor LED screens primarily follow VLSI design technology and modular design of structures? They also have super-gray control technology, which can improve the reliability, stability and playback effect of the entire display system. Indoor LED screens cannot meet the needs of large-scale display projects. However, they are very suitable for indoor applications. They provide better spectrophotometric colors. In addition, they also provide high color saturation.


The larger size of outdoor screens plays an important role in making products more expensive. Indoor LED screens are cheaper than outdoor screens.

LED mobile display

Outdoor and indoor LED screen displays are different from each other in terms of LED mobile displays. 1) Outdoor LED mobile display has DIP module, which can provide perfect waterproof, high brightness and sturdy steel cabinet. It is fully compatible with outdoor environments. However, it is more expensive than indoor. 2) On the other hand, indoor LED mobile displays have LED matrix modules. Although the brightness is darker than the outdoor version, it is enough for indoor use. Indoor LED screens are worth the money.
