When it comes to connecting with customers, upgrading your aesthetic, and increasing brand awareness, you need a design as unique as the value you provide. By building your own customized LED solution, you can achieve all three in one fell swoop. In this blog, we’ll go over what you should be looking for in your LED solutions, PixelFLEX’s unique approach to LED customization, explore case studies proving the power of creative LED, and discuss the value of collaboration and reliable partnership to the success of a project.  

Given that a project needs to run the gamut, generic LED solutions aren’t always enough to fulfill your (or your company’s) unique requirements. A build needs to tell the brand’s story and communicate its unique value proposition to customers just by looking at it, and a one-size-fits-all solution often isn’t enough. With a custom LED solution, you can achieve an edge over the competition with enhanced visual impact that stands out from the rest—and do so quickly with a seamless PixelFLEX LED integration.

Plus, our manufacturing process is extremely flexible, and we can easily customize any product to fit your exact tech spec needs. 

Unleashing Creative Possibilities with Custom LED Solutions 


Founded in 1992, NetApp, Inc. is a hybrid cloud data service company headquartered in Silicon Valley. As a mainstay on Fortune 500 list for more than 10 years, the company’s clients include YouTube, Amazon Web Services, and Nielsen Holdings. With such an impressive client list—and even more business still to conquer—NetApp needed a dynamic LED display to serve as focal point for their revamped headquarters. NetApp’s vision for the space was to create an interactive space to entertain clients and highlight the power of their brand.  

Working alongside NetApp, PixelFLEX developed an awe-inspiring, jaw-dropping design to communicate NetApp’s scope, size, and influence in a single glance. Emerging from the ceiling and anchoring to the floor, the massive 18-finned, 3.0mm pitch build swirls at the center of NetApp’s vast lobby like a beating heart or the nucleus of a cell, displaying video and other information viewable from 360 degrees. Built using FLEXMod, PixelFLEX’s highly adaptive, flexible LED tile, the build has an awesome weight to it, and merely standing in its glow is enough to communicate NetApp’s incredible value.  

“The goal that we set for this project was to create an iconic structure that would really set NetApp apart from all the other high-tech companies that surrounded us here in Silicon Valley,” said Mike Tyler, Senior Manager of Global AV and Multimedia services at NetApp. “It’s a very, very elegant design and it’s truly a one-of-a-kind, instantly recognizable build. There’s really nothing else quite like it in the world.”  

Air Jordan XXXI – Premier Event  

First introduced by Nike in 1984, Air Jordan 1 became an instant classic, selling 1.5m pairs in the first six weeks alone. Air Jordan has since become one of the most iconic and celebrated athletic brands in the world, endorsed and created for American basketball legend Michael Jordan.  

Given the brand’s history and status, it came as no surprise that Nike wanted to go big for the unveiling of the Air Jordan XXXI in Las Vegas. Working as a team, PixelFLEX, Nike, and integrator VT Pro Design developed the world’s first regulation, interactive LED basketball floor. The design included changing neon lights, white lettering reading “Defy Gravity,” and an LED screen behind the hoop extending the illusion that the players were doing just that—defying gravity.

An integrator plays the crucial role of synthesizing each individual piece of an AV display into perfect harmony. Working with customers to tease out a vision, then with LED providers to see it to fruition, integrators are both the face of and the lifeblood of a successful and memorable AV display. When LED providers and integrators share a strong partnership, the benefits to the customer are exponential.   

As we’ll explore further in this blog, great integrators have an incentive to form strong, lasting partnerships with great LED providers. PixelFLEX LED proves an ideal partner, offering a wide range of indoor LED solutions, customizable options, exceptional quality, and a commitment to collaborative, profitable, and mutually uplifting partnerships.  

Understanding the Integrator’s Role 

Although integrators come equipped with all the tools for seamless installation, finding the best LED products and providers can sometimes prove challenging. A few of these challenges include: 

  • Analysis paralysis – with so many vendors to choose from, it’s hard to know where to start. Finding the right provider for you starts with weighing your options carefully and keeping considerations such as price and partnership potential top of mind. 
  • Budget – in a crowded marketplace, it’s important to differentiate yourself from the pack while remaining within budget. It’s a balancing act between clients’ needs and the configurability of products, between expectations and budget constraints.  
  • Project Management – in an industry ripe with supply chain issues, a partner you can rely on is key. The ideal partner is US-based, readily available to answer questions and remedy problems to ensure your project stays on course.  

While this may sound like a lot, finding LED providers who meet all of your requirements is within reach. Don’t settle for a provider who only checks some of your boxes—find someone who checks them all! Collaborating with and forming long-standing relationships with reputable, experienced LED companies will empower you to address your clients’ needs and deliver the best results.  

Key Factors to Consider in an LED Partner 

Beyond foundational barriers to entry like importation/tariff compliance and passing safety inspections, you should also prioritize finding an LED provider based on more meaningful qualities and capabilities, which we’ll go over here.

Are you looking for a way to make your outdoor advertising campaigns more effective and engaging? Look no further than LED screens! LED screens are quickly becoming the go-to solution for outdoor advertising, and for good reason. Today we’ll explore the advantages of using LED screens for outdoor advertising, with a specific focus on the FLEXStorm product.  

Enhanced Visibility

In today’s fast-paced, digital world, it’s more important than ever to capture people’s attention and engage them with your message. With billboards and advertisements surrounding us at every turn, it can be difficult to stand out from the crowd. However, outdoor LED screens provide a solution that is both effective and cost-efficient. In fact, 7 out of 10 people can recall a digital out-of-home (DOOH) advertisement they have seen in the past month*. 

From building-side LED displays to mobile advertising we can guide you through the process of implementing an outdoor LED display that is sure to capture the attention of your audience. Unlike traditional advertising methods, such as billboards or banners, LED screens offer enhanced visibility with their bright, eye-catching content that is visible even from a distance. This makes them the perfect choice for outdoor settings where you need to grab people’s attention quickly and effectively.   

Dynamic Content Capabilities

In addition to their enhanced visibility, LED screens have another major advantage over traditional advertising methods: their ability to display dynamic and interactive content. With LED screens, you can create advertising campaigns that are not limited to static images or text – you can display videos, animations, and even live content. This makes it easier to create engaging and memorable advertising that will stick with your audience long after they’ve seen it. 

By using dynamic content on LED screens, you can create advertising campaigns that are more likely to be shared on social media or through word of mouth. This can help to increase your reach and generate more buzz around your brand. 

Furthermore, LED screens can be customized to display specific messages or content at specific times of day. This allows you to target your audience more effectively and create campaigns that are tailored to their needs and preferences.   


One of the most attractive features of LED screens for outdoor advertising is their cost-effectiveness.  Unlike traditional advertising methods, such as print ads or billboards, LED screens can be managed in-house, eliminating the need for expensive printing or production costs. This not only saves you money in the long term, but it also gives you greater control over the content you display, as you can create and update content as often as you need to. 

PixelFLEX’s outdoor LED solutions can provide significant value add by increasing revenue through advertising partnerships or sponsorships. By displaying targeted ads to a captive audience and being able to modify and change the content quickly avoiding down time, buildings can increase their bottom line and see a quicker return on their investment. By working with a company like PixelFLEX, companies can also ensure that they have US based service and support to help maintain their investment, unlike products manufactured and purchased overseas.   

Moreover, LED screens are highly durable and long-lasting, so you won’t have to worry about replacing them frequently. Unlike traditional advertising methods that may fade, warp, or become damaged over time, LED screens are designed to withstand harsh weather conditions and heavy usage. Our outdoor LED screens have an average lifetime of over 100,000 hours, making them a long-lasting investment that can provide years of effective outdoor advertising. 

In addition to their durability, LED screens are also energy-efficient, which can translate to cost savings on energy bills. This is because LED screens consume less energy than traditional lighting methods, such as fluorescent or incandescent bulbs. 

FLEXStorm Advantages

Flexstorm is the ultimate outdoor LED screen solution for advertisers looking to make an impact in any weather conditions. With its IP65 rating, Flexstorm has been rigorously tested to withstand extreme temperatures, rain, snow, and even dust, making it the perfect solution for outdoor advertising campaigns. This durable and long-lasting product ensures that your investment is protected, and you can enjoy uninterrupted advertising without worrying about frequent maintenance or replacement costs. 

Check out these examples of successful outdoor advertising campaigns that used  LED screens: 

  • JW Marriott: We partnered with Panasonic to implement a 25-story tall outdoor rated LED video screen in Los Angeles, featuring a blow-through design that allows for perfect viewing from behind the screen.  
  • Ascend Amphitheater: A full outdoor LED Display solution for an amphitheater, featuring a unique shock lift system for easy servicing, auto-brightness adjustment to adapt to outside weather, and primarily used for advertising purposes.  
  • 300 Park Ave: Entertainment and relaxation space for tenants on an unused rooftop, featuring a large widescreen format LED wall that serves as a center focal point for ads, video, and TV playback. 

If you’re looking for a way to make your outdoor advertising campaigns more effective and engaging, LED screens are the way to go. With their enhanced visibility, dynamic content capabilities, cost-effectiveness, and customization options, LED screens offer a superior solution to traditional advertising methods. And with the FLEXStorm product, you can take your outdoor advertising to the next level with a durable, easy-to-use, and high-quality LED screen. Contact us today to learn more!

Are you unsure how to navigate the world of LED displays? There are different terms, elements, and resolutions to consider as you look at your options. While there are best practices for indoor and outdoor displays, it’s important to understand the basics first. Let’s begin with essential LED display terms so that you can move forward with confidence!

What is LED?

It is a light-emitting diode (LED) semiconductor device that pours out visible light when an electric current passes through it. It requires less power than other light sources, and it has a long lifespan. 

What can I use LED displays for?

LED can be utilized for signage display, all the way to high-resolution video playback for indoor, outdoor, and custom uses. LED displays can create unforgettable experiences at concerts, trade shows, schools, airports, and events.

How do I know which screen size to choose?

Screen size will depend on your specific space and goals. The physical screen size and resolution will ultimately work together to create the best display for your situation. If your audience will be close to the screen at an event or trade show, consider a higher resolution for maximum clarity. If the screen will be farther away from your audience in a stadium or on a billboard, you can get away with a lower resolution without sacrificing experience for your audience.

What is a pixel pitch?

Pixel pitch is the distance between the center of one LED pixel to the next LED pixel, measured in millimeters. A smaller pixel pitch will create a higher resolution for the LED display. Similarly, a larger pixel pitch will display a lower resolution. There is a time and place for each resolution, so be sure to ask a professional about which resolution level is appropriate for your project!

What is a NIT?

NIT measures the brightness of an LED display and is just as important as resolution. It shows how much light the display sends to your eyes in a given area. Keep your use case in mind when selecting NIT because the right NIT will help you achieve the brightness needed for your audience to perfectly see your display–especially critical when selecting outdoor LED displays.

What is an IP rating?

This is a two digit number defining a display’s sealing effectiveness. The first digit represents ingress protection against solid objects like dust, dirt, and other elements. The second digit represents protection against liquids such as rain. Outdoor LED displays have higher IP ratings to withstand the elements.

It’s not always easy to navigate through the world of LED display terms, especially if you are new to these options. The possibilities are endless, and a little guidance will help you find the right application for your project. Learn how to choose the right display type for your business by downloading our Buyer’s Guide. Have a question specific to your business? Fill out our contact form, and we will get back to you shortly!

What Resolution Do I Need For My Screen Size?

Resolution and screen size are two important factors to consider, but before you can consider those, you will want to think about two more critical items.  You must consider the average viewing distance for your audience and the brightness of your space (indoor, outdoor, etc.).  If the screen will be farther away from your audience, typically over 50 feet then maybe a lower pixel pitch is a good fit so you can have your display be as bright as you want. If your audience will be close to the screen, less than 50 feet, you will want to consider a higher pitch or resolution to provide maximum clarity while not as bright. 

High-resolution technology elements are working together to provide new, creative possibilities for filmmakers and live event production teams looking to push the bounds of imagination


Nashville, TN (8/18/20) – Technology developments in filmmaking have deeply broadened the spectrum of what is visually possible and have also taken the live event experience to all new heights. With the implementation of high-resolution LED video environments that have become the backbone of such award-winning production designs as Star Wars: The Mandalorian, production houses across the nation have begun to look at applying this type of technology for the benefit of their clients. Such is the case with PixelFLEX™ rental network partners Mountain View Staging and Elite Multimedia Productions, who have taken their live and virtual event capabilities into a new realm of possibilities using production designs with LED video.

Video walls can create stunning centerpieces for a variety of spaces. LED video displays can transform any environment, but you may become overwhelmed when you look at all the options on the market. There are many elements to consider when selecting video screens, including indoor vs outdoor, pixel pitch, front vs rear serviceability, and shape. If you aren’t sure where to start, PixelFLEX™ has products to fit every need.

So Many Video Wall Options—Where to Start

To get started, it’s essential to understand the basics. Here are some fast facts you should know:

  • An LED (light emitting diode) is a semiconductor device that emits visible light when an electric current passes through it.
  • LEDs require much less power than other types of screens powered by incandescent lamps, offering greater efficiency and a longer lifespan.
  • Indoor LED screens have wide-viewing angles, no color shifts, and have a smooth appearance from a short distance.
  • Outdoor LEDs are weather-proof, very bright, and are ideal for longer viewing distances.
  • Brightness is a key element in designing your video wall and is measured by nits. Indoor LEDs typically have 1000-1500 nits while outdoor LEDs have 2000-3000 nits. A nit is almost 3.5 times brighter than a LUX, the measurement of brightness used by projector screens.
  • Pixel pitch is another important part of LED selection. Pixel pitch is the physical distance from the center of one pixel to the next, measured in millimeters. The higher the number, the fewer pixels, and lower resolution. Depending on viewing distance, you’ll need to determine the right pixel pitch for optimal resolution. A general rule is 3.28 feet per 1mm of resolution.
  • Cost and budget are always a consideration. LEDs have a higher initial investment than projectors but last much longer.

Finding the Right Video Wall Equipment for Your Project

If you aren’t an AV expert, selecting the right LED video wall may seem difficult. It’s important to educate yourself on the basics of LED screens, as provided above. This gives you a foundation to begin your search. As you work with those that have specific expertise, like PixelFLEX, you’ll know the right questions to ask about pixel pitch, brightness, and longevity.

To narrow down your selection, ask these questions:

  • How will you use the display? Does it need to be the central element in a setting? Or is it a backdrop?
  • Are you using the displays inside or outside?
  • Will it be viewed from long or short distances?
  • How will it be mounted? Does the area require a certain shape or curvature of the screen?

Depending on your answers, you can narrow down exactly what you need to bring your ideas to life.

Products for Every Video Wall

PixelFLEX has a large variety of award-winning LED displays. We can create nearly any size or shape screen required. From indoor to outdoor to curved configurations, there’s a perfect product for every installation.

You may have specific goals for your video walls—attracting attention, upselling, increasing curb appeal—and our team of experienced professionals will help you reach that goal. As a full-service LED provider, we collaborate with customers creatively to ensure the best experience.

It can be challenging to capture the attention of your customers and visitors. LED walls can help. These large scale, high-resolution digital displays make an impression that’s difficult to ignore. But an LED wall is a significant investment, so savvy buyers are seeking ways to lower costs without sacrificing quality or wasting time throughout the buying process.

Quality, Timeline, and Budget Affect One Another

The Project Management Triangle, also known as the Triple Constraint or Iron Triangle, has been used to represent the constraints of project management since at least the 1950s. In language simple enough to fit on a T-shirt, it can be summarized as “Fast, cheap, or good…pick any two.” When it comes to LED walls, that philosophy implies that if you want an inexpensive display quickly, it won’t be of good quality. And if you want high quality at a low price, you’ll have to wait. In reality, this model is a bit too simplistic, since these three factors are not measured as absolute “good” or “bad” choices, but on a sliding scale. All three considerations are important, so finding the right solution for your unique situation is a balancing act.

Balancing the Three Sides of the Triangle

If you’re operating under both a tight timeline and budget, don’t expect your supplier to design a high-end LED wall for you. Lead times on large LED displays are typically much longer than other types, and high-resolution displays are obviously more expensive. If you have a longer timeline and a more generous budget, however, you have more options available to you, depending on the size, content type, and installation desired. If you want high-quality with a quick turnaround, however, be prepared to pay the big bucks. If you don’t have a budget in mind or have no idea what the associated costs might be, have a conversation with your supplier. They can help establish a theoretical budget, the details of which can be finessed as your needs become more evident. Working from the timeline and budget side can help point you toward the best quality solution for your unique situation.

Maximize Your LED Wall Budget

Like anything, you get what you pay for with digital displays. Manufacturers continue to push the envelope in an effort to create an ever-finer display. The lower the pixel pitch, the closer individual pixels are to each other and the higher the resolution. A decade ago, 10mm to 20mm pitches were standard, but today pixel pitches of one millimeter or less are not uncommon. Before choosing a high-resolution LED wall, a buyer should consider how they will use the display. First, consider how far away viewers will typically be. A good rule of thumb is to multiply the pixel pitch times ten to get the approximate viewing distance in feet. Any higher resolution would largely be a waste of money. Also, consider buying older technology. What was deemed high-resolution a year or two ago may be regarded as “old hat” by techies today, but may be perfectly acceptable for your use – and sold at a big discount. Finally, look for manufacturers who are creating standardized displays that allow you to easily upgrade in the future as more powerful technology becomes more affordable.

Consider the Following When Budgeting Your Project:

  • Time affects everything – Leave yourself enough time to do thorough research so you can buy the right product for your solution. A lot of LED manufacturers can have lead times that vary anywhere from 30 to 90 days. If you need to rush, additional charges may be incurred.
  • What are you trying to accomplish? – This seems like a fairly simple question. However, it can influence the product, pitch, and other processing variables you choose, which, in turn, significantly affect the price of your LED video display solution. Do you really need the highest resolution pitch on the market, or can you move down to a slightly lower resolution to accomplish the same thing and potentially save thousands of dollars?
  • Think through content and playback before you purchase – This is often the most overlooked aspect of any LED video display build. Ultimately, your display is only as good as your input source. Having quality content and the right media server in place will help maximize your investment.
  • Pick a provider you trust and asks the right questions from the beginning – A great LED manufacturer with strong partnerships with integrators and designers can save you money in the long term. Whether through its warranty and service or presales engineering and support, a partner offering these features can catch a lot of things upfront that could end up costing you money later.

Deploying a digital signage network on any scale can be a long, involved process for a business. However, spending the bulk of their time and effort selecting hardware and software solutions and comparing the benefits of various content providers means customers may miss a critical aspect of the process: the installation. This is where an experienced integrator can prove invaluable. Contracting the services of an accomplished integrator will help guarantee quality installation and service over the life of an LED display, ensuring the long-term success of digital signage projects.

How to Choose a Great Integrator

An integrator’s job is to create a system that works and meets requirements, delivered on time and on budget. But that’s just the beginning. A truly great integrator goes the extra mile, translating business requirements into superior technology solutions with a long lifespan. The process begins with excellent communication skills. A skilled integrator will listen, learning the unique issues the client faces and the distinct needs of the viewing audience. The integrator should not simply be an order taker. Rather, the integrator should have the expertise to determine both the current requirements of the project as well as future goals, advise the customer about existing and upcoming technology, and then recommend a future-proof solution that will scale as technology and business needs evolve. This will help save money and effort over time while guaranteeing many years of productive use out of this significant investment. Finally, an integrator serves as a trusted partner for the long haul, providing ongoing support as systems need to be refreshed and updated.

A Great Integrator Makes for a Stress-Free Installation Process

Installing a digital display is a lot more complicated than setting up a home entertainment system; therefore, clients should work with an integrator with experience in the many nuances of digital signage. At the minimum, a digital signage network that has been improperly installed or set-up will deliver something less than what the end-user had hoped for, leading to constant frustration—as well as an ever-mounting price tag—as troubleshooters try to track down issues and correct them. At worst, a system could prove a safety hazard in violation of various building codes. In short, hiring a cut-rate installer who doesn’t have the proficiency to handle the job may save a few dollars now, but will undoubtedly end up costing more in the long-run.

The Benefits an Experienced Integrator Brings to the Table

There are many reasons to work with a professional digital signage integrator. First, a professional integrator will have long-standing relationships with the major equipment manufacturers with verifiable experience in the installation of their products. Next, a great integrator will be able to translate complex technical requirements and industry terminology into terms the end-user can understand, providing them with the knowledge to make an intelligent choice. Further, experienced integrators not only pay attention to the details of a project, but the big picture as well, addressing issues early in the planning process before they become costly problems. Also, a seasoned integrator knows which products work well together, and which may end up causing compatibility problems down the road. They also know how to properly handle gear, ensuring that neither the equipment nor facility is inadvertently damaged during installation. Finally, when issues do arise, it’s essential to be working with an integrator who has both the financial and human resources to correct any mistakes and make things right.

While you are probably aware of the advantages of using digital signage, you may be wondering how much an LED video wall costs. Well, the answer requires some explanation and a look at several determining factors. There’s size, pixel pitch, quality of the LED components, and other features to consider. Let’s explore what impacts the price of an LED video wall.

Pricing LED Video Walls: Factors to Consider

LED video walls can be an impressive visual array for your space, engaging guests, customers, and staff, allowing your brand to communicate it’s message uniquely. But LED video walls are not a one-size-fits-all product, so several aspects can impact the price.

  • Display size: as you go bigger, your budget will most likely need to increase as well
  • Resolution: determined by the pitch of pixels in a display—the smaller the pitch, the clearer the image; for the top tier processors, you can expect to pay anywhere between $8K to $30K depending on the complexity of playback capabilities
  • Configuration: the more complex your video tile configuration, the more attention it will draw, but you can also expect to pay more, too
  • Mounting: to meet your configuration needs, you may need custom mounts, which are more expensive than standard mounts
  • Indoor vs. outdoor: where your video wall will be placed impacts the price—typically, outdoor displays require more ruggedized construction to withstand weather and other elements, so they tend to come at a higher price

Cost Is About More Than Screen Size

While a larger screen obviously entails more materials, meaning larger budgets, it’s not just about the size of a screen. You may find that screens similar in size and resolution have varying prices, which is directly linked to the source and attributes of the LEDs. While a higher density of pixels translates to better resolution, the higher the pixel pitch, the higher the price. Key elements such as viewing distance may affect the tightness of clusters necessary for your particular video wall—wider-spaced pixel clusters translate to fewer dollars. It comes down to the type of content you’ll be displaying and how it will be viewed.

Further, the quality and speed of the processing components will also account for a considerable chunk of your budget. And other aspects must be considered, including installation ease, features, and benefits that improve image performance, front and/or rear serviceability, energy efficiency, warranties, and a screen configuration that will not only aesthetically enhance the space, but accurately, engagingly represent your brand vision and message.
