How to choose the right LED Video Screen for your next event.
The use of LED Video Screen technology has rapidly increased in the events market. From stadium concerts to product launches, LED Video Screens can be a creative medium for your next event. In this article we want to cover the basics factors to consider when choosing the right LED Video Screen product for your next event.
PIXEL PITCH - This is one of the most important questions you need to ask regarding a LED Video Screen. Pixel pitch refers to the physical distance between the LED's placed on the screen. The lower the distance between LED's, the higher the resolution and the image quality will be. A 3 mm pixel pitch is a much higher resolution and better viewing experience than a 20mm pixel pitch screen. The closer your audience is to the screen, the higher your pixel will need to be for an optimal viewing experience.
TRANSPARENT or SOLID PANELS - LED Panels can be used in many different applications and creative ways. The backing of the panels can designed to be semi- transparent, allowing wind to pass through and reduce the weight of the product. This can be helpful for outdoor events as it allows for some creative ideas, such as placing lighting fixtures or more LED video tiles behind the open panels. For presentations and other critical viewing applications, a solid panel will be more useful to ensure no ambient light or distractions bleed through onto the picture.
WEIGHT - Depending on the engineering limitations of your event space, this might become a serious consideration when choosing the right LED Video Screen. Weight of products range, from those with heavy steel frames to those with modern ultra-light weight carbon fibre structures. In cases where the venue can't support the weight of your desired video screen, stacking the LED Video Wall from the ground may also be an option.
BRIGHTNESS - LED Panels are produced a range of brightness options in order to meet different applications and demands. Some are only bright enough for only indoor use, whilst others are manufactured to be bright enough for outdoor use as well. However, even the lowest brightness screen can resist a much higher ambient lighting environment than typical projector setups. Where you have an outdoor event with direct sunlight falling on the screen, the brightness of the screen should be in the range of 5000+ nits*
*Nits are a measure of brightness per square meter of area, this is a different unit of measurement to how projectors are rated.
UNIFORMITY OF COLOUR - LED Video Screens are produced in batches to ensure uniform performance of the LED diodes. If you have an LED Video Screen made up with paneling produced from seperate batches, uniformity of the colour produced will never be consistent. A simple blue background on the screen will vary in hue over the span of the image, resulting in a disappointing viewing experience.
ASPECT RATIO - the ratio of the width to the height of the screen surface. Unlike projector screens and televisions, LED Screens can be assembled in creative ways that are not restricted to a standard 16:9 or 4:3 aspect ratio. The aspect ratio of the screen needs to be considered when designing content to be played back to ensure a well fitting presentation.
We hope the information here has helped you in choosing the right LED Screen for your next event.
