Choosing the right display for a video wall can be overwhelming and confusing. Screens are growing in size, resolutions are increasing, and there are new, more advanced video display options available each year. The first question to address is whether to use an LCD or LED display. Before deciding, it’s important to understand the purpose of each.

Advantages of LCD Video Wall Displays
LCD, or liquid crystal display, is a type of flat panel that has been popular for years, not only in video walls, but most smartphones, computer monitors, and television screens. An LCD panel is constructed by sandwiching a layer of liquid crystal between two pieces of polarized glass. Liquid crystal is a fluidly flowing material with molecules that can be oriented by applying an electric current. However, liquid crystals don’t produce their own light, necessitating the use of backlights positioned behind the glass to illuminate the display. LCD displays are bright, affordable, reliable, and produce brilliant, fluid color. In addition, LCD displays are extremely high-resolution and able to display text, images, and video in sharp detail, making them a great option for video wall applications.

Advantages of LED Video Wall Displays
A direct view LED display uses thousands of light-emitting diodes to create an image. Unlike LCDs, the LEDs don’t require a backlight, instead producing colored light when a particular voltage is applied to them. Red, green, and blue LEDs are grouped on the panel, creating the full-color pixels needed to produce an image. LED displays were once a lower-resolution option largely used outdoors, but the development of smaller LEDs in recent years has produced much higher resolutions suitable for indoor video walls. LED displays are bright, reliable, energy-efficient, and offer the best color accuracy and refresh rates of any display type available today. These qualities make LEDs an excellent choice for large-scale digital displays that demand high-impact visuals.

Comparing LCD and LED Displays
When LCDs are tiled together to create a video wall, bezels are visible between the individual panels. By contrast, LED panels have no bezels, so they can be tiled together to form a completely seamless video wall. Higher-resolution LED walls are still several times more expensive than comparable LCD displays, but offer a longer lifespan, with less color matching and burn in issues. LED tiles are also lighter than most LCD walls, and perhaps most importantly, much brighter.

Benefits of LED Screens

The point of events is to wow people, right? LED screens are becoming more and more popular at events due to increasing technology capabilities and affordability. Live productions of all shapes and sizes can benefit from LED screens and visual aids can significantly enhance almost any experience for everyone involved. Productions can run the risk of encountering screen size and outdoor projection limitations, but these obstacles can be easily overcome with LED video screen rentals. Consider an LED screen for your next event, you won’t regret it. Here’s why LED video screens are a great addition to any event.

LED video walls make every seat the best seat in the house. Screens have an array of advantages over competitor technologies. When it comes to outdoor, long-distance visibility, LED screens have no competition. These screens can be scaled to any size, allowing the screen to be seen from hundreds of feet away in broad daylight, giving every attendee a first-class, front-row experience.

LED walls bring clarity and vibrancy to any event.  Models available in LED video screen products range in maximum brightness. Some are bright enough for only indoor use and some are bright enough for outdoor use.  Even screens with the lowest brightness can resist much higher ambient light environments than typical projector setups.  Events with direct sunlight on a 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.)

Why is this important?

Customizable features on a video wall can be constructed and personalized based on your event’s needs. FlexTour tiles are specifically designed for touring and live event deployment, and provide a robust set of features to enhance attendee experience. FlexTour tiles can be customized to provide a personalized experience that gives life to the vision of event planners, while providing first-class viewing experiences for attendees.

LED screens have become a mainstay in the large event category with their optimal picture resolution and capability to emit high light levels. When you are looking for an LED Video Wall event company to hire make sure you go with one that guarantees that the set design will provide high-quality visual communication and be sure they’re able to tailor all of the LED screens specifically to your event. You can build LED big screens of almost any size and shape. With LED video walls you’ll wow your audience with the best in LED technology and give them an experience they won’t forget.
