In the past five years, the market for high-resolution LED displays has grown exponentially on a wave of new pixel pitch technology. The rapid growth has provided businesses with an array of powerful display solutions, but the skyrocketing price has some concerned about how to develop a balanced budget that maximizes the value of their investment. There are a number of considerations to take into account when surveying the field, and though the market is producing cutting-edge technologies, the key to efficiency may be surprising.

Recently, competitors in the LED display market have focused on increasing resolution by focusing on reducing the fine pixel pitch, which measures the physical distance between two LED diodes, center to center. Less than a decade ago, 10mm to 20mm pitches were standard. But recent advances have put 3mm and less products in the spotlight, with a 15.8% CAGR predicted between 2014 and 2024.[1] Industry insiders say that this race to develop the finest possible LED display have pushed prices too high, as the R&D and man hours necessary to create the technology is simply too expensive for manufacturers. This both limits the growth of the market and creates an additional challenge for businesses looking to integrate an LED display into their approach.[2]

The key for businesses looking to maximize their investment is to look back by a year. Though instincts say that older technology is outdated and therefore not as good, the upgrades seen in fine pixel pitches have been incremental. Whereas 4mm pixel pitches were cutting-edge last year, this year they’re considered old news. Despite that, 4mm products are extremely high-resolution and using that technology means the same goals can be met with a much smarter, leaner budget.

Creating an immersive experience for customers is harder than ever, and though having a high-resolution display is essential, it’s far from the only consideration to be made. Putting up a digital display of any kind will create more engagement from viewers, with more than half (55%) not only recalling a digital screen they’d seen but remembering the exact message displayed.[3] Standing out from the crowd is absolutely key, and recent advances in LED have made thinking outside the box more than possible, but necessary. “Audiovisual designers can be more creative than they’ve really ever been able to be. They’ve been limited to rectangular boxes for such a long time,” David Venus of LED manufacturer Pixel Flex said.

When looking to balance a high-resolution with price, distance is your friend. The more natural distance between viewer and display, the less important it is to have a fine pixel pitch. Many locations, like university unions and property managers, are renting out ad space on their digital display to offset the cost of an initial investment, and though this solution isn’t ideal for every user, it’s a powerful way to regulate a budget.

Perhaps the most important element of investing in a current digital display is to seek out manufacturers who are creating standardized displays. When electronics are uniform across platforms, it’s easy to buy a lower-resolution version today and then simply upgrade later down the line when more powerful technology becomes affordable.[4]

The future of digital displays is a thrilling one. As technologies grow more powerful and affordable, the A/V world will likely never be the same.

When designing a new project, architects face numerous challenges to deliver clients designs that are not only efficient, practical, and functional, but also unique and beautiful. Coming up with bold and creative new ways to set a new space apart from any other or achieve the desired look and experience is increasingly difficult to do.   However, as both interiors and exteriors are becoming smarter and more advanced, and the materials and technologies themselves evolve, architects and designers find themselves with more room to explore and more boundaries to push. Utilizing LED Wall technology for both interior and exterior applications opens up a new world of creative possibilities for dreamers to construct that will stand out, connect, inspire, and communicate with customers.

There are an endless variety of applications for LED Wall technology in contemporary design, from outdoor signage to grand artistic expressions. With LEDs, even a 33,000-square meter,160 story facade can be used as a blank canvas in a myriad of creative and eye-catching ways.

Currently, the largest and highest LED Wall in the world is not actually a wall, it’s also the tallest skyscraper! The skyscraper, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, doubles as the screen itself! With 163 floors to cover, this massive project required 72 kilometers of cabling and 10,000 connectors to cover a total facade area of 33,000 square meters. The results are both beautiful and majestic, as seen during the 2017 New Year celebration when the entire structure was lit up with artists’ work. The Burj Khalifa has since issued an open call to artists to use the facade as their blank canvas, making an already iconic skyscraper even more eye-catching.

Another example of a creative and innovative use of LED technology in a unique, fun, and cutting-edge design is the Roskilde Pavilion by BIG Architects of Denmark. The architect was inspired by the inflatable castles of his youth and so designed a foam pavilion that inflates in just 7 minutes into a 120-square meter canopy. The entire pavilion is lit by a changing palette of colorful LEDs that illuminate the canopy, and party goers, with whimsical light.

LED technology also has a vital communication role to play in the form of signage. Approximately 71% of consumers claimed to have seen and absorbed large format advertising, showing that bold, striking LED signage can greatly boost brand awareness to the passing public.

LED Walls are not only a way to create unique designs that stand out or a powerful tool to harness for strong communication; they also open endless opportunities for creativity and expression in architecture. LEDs bring attention to the structure, enhance the beauty of the design, and inspire admiration in viewers.   Just like the Burj Khalifa, the world, every building, every space is a blank canvas ready to be filled with an immersive, beautiful, and powerful LED experience.  It just requires an architect who is flexible and has an eye for the future, and a

a company that believes the same and takes pride in being just as flexible as the designs themselves. Often this means helping architects to create something entirely new for the marketplace. PixelFLEX’s goal is to offer solutions that fit their clients’ individual needs, working in tandem with them and their visions to create brand new solutions and stay ahead of trends.

Video walls have been growing in popularity at houses of worship, largely due to their brightness, image clarity, and limitless configuration possibilities. They’re also long-lasting and cost effective. Whether you are looking to display song lyrics, sermon points, or live IMAG video, LED walls help project your message in an unforgettable way to captivate your congregation. But video walls are not just useful inside the sanctuary. They can also be used for digital signage throughout the rest of the facility and beyond.

Here are some tips and considerations when planning to add an LED video wall:

Consider the size of screen that you need: Video screens can be as small or as large as desired, so think about how you’ll be using your LED display. Do you want to make a major impact, or do you need to convey information in a more intimate way? A welcoming LED wall, for example, needs to be much larger than a coffee counter menu video display.

Think about location: If the goal of your video wall is to welcome visitors and worshippers, it needs to be visible to every person as they enter your facility. And don’t forget to consider possible outdoor installation locations as well as those inside the sanctuary. If it’s purpose is to direct traffic, make sure it’s in a spot that the masses will be able to see.

Plan for the installation: Will you mount your video display to a wall, or will it be free-standing? Also, consider whether you’ll be able to hide cables and power cords, or if you’ll need to look at other methods of stowing them away.

Examine the surrounding area: How bright is the area where your LED wall or display will be situated? Does your LED wall have to be visible in sunlight, such as a roadside digital LED sign, or will it be used only in a darkened room?

Consider content: Initially, you may only plan to display images and text. But eventually, you may want to create a welcome video or showcase live worship services. You need to consider how you will control and feed content to your walls. Choose a video controller that not only controls and feeds content to your walls now, but also fits your goals for the future.

Prepare for the future: Think about how you’ll want to use your video wall in years to come. As your congregation grows, you’ll want your capabilities to keep pace.

LED video displays can be powerfully deployed throughout your facility to reinforce your message, providing a moving, inspirational worship experience that will not only capture the attention of your congregation, but increase interaction as well. PixelFLEX offers seamless large-format LED displays in a variety of resolutions, providing clear and detailed image displays, with the freedom to reconfigure as much as you want to fit your message.

Considering all the advantages, there’s never been a better time to install an LED wall in your church or house of worship!

In today’s competitive business environment, companies must make a concerted effort to differentiate themselves and stand out within a crowded marketplace. One-way organizations are setting themselves apart is through the adoption of LED digital signage. These vibrant and dynamic video screens are proven to drive customer engagement and promote better guest experiences. While digital signage is an excellent tool for content delivery and audience retention, it is only effective when properly integrated into a space.

Successful signage requires 5 key elements: proper planning, the right company, the right product, the right content, and proper calibration.

  • Every LED signage deployment is unique, making it crucial to plan properly. This means defining the goals of the displays. Is the intended video wall meant to entertain, inform, or advertise? What is the source of the content? Is it television, video, internet, live stream, or presentation? Will the content be HD or 4K? Is text readability important? Having firm answers to all these questions is important to ensure a high ROI.
  • While many organizations believe they can integrate LED displays into their space on their own, it would serve them better to turn to a company with expertise in LED installation. This means connecting with an experienced partner that can make a video wall dream a reality. The company should be able to offer custom solutions, and know how to work with architects, designers, engineers, and consultants to blend LED displays with an environment.
  • The right company will be able to recommend the right products for the job. Taking into account the location of the intended video wall, specific professional-grade products will be needed that are suited for the climate and constant 24/7/365 use. The installation company can configure the screens so that they are seamless and provide easy access for future maintenance. These products should be expandable, and contain the necessary cooling fans and robust inputs to allow for an extensive lifetime of usage.
  • Even the most advanced LED displays that are perfectly installed will still not deliver the expected ROI if the right content isn’t broadcasted across the screens. Who is creating the content? Is the content capable of fulfilling the objective or goals of the display? How will it be updated across a network? Is the content configured correctly so that the images are displayed correctly, and not stretched or distorted in any way?
  • An investment in a video wall and the corresponding content won’t pay dividends if the screens aren’t properly calibrated. Each screen must be perfectly and uniformly calibrated for color, brightness and contrast so that images consistently look great. Failing to do so would be throwing money out the window.

 

By following the five keys to proper LED signage installation, an organization can drive engagement and better guest experiences, ensuring that the investment in the technology pays off.

LED walls have the power to captivate audiences with their impressive visual stimulation, high contrast ratios, and ability to reproduce vibrant content. When deciding to implement a creative LED video wall application, understanding exactly what is desired for the video wall is important when considering the price of your LED video wall. LED display screens have so many custom factors involved that it can be difficult to estimate the price of a display application without the help of expert knowledge and job specific consultation. LED displays have so many possible configurations that it is sometimes challenging to understand what the display visuals will turn out based on the buyer’s vision. Finding a LED partner that can ask you important questions and help you consider various options will help you decide what you need and what you don’t and what the overall price will be.  By considering all the available options with a LED display expert, unnecessary costs can be avoided while optimizing your installation without sacrificing your audiences experience and the final price of the project.

When first deciding on an LED display one must consider these 5 variables that will affect viewing environments and project price:

Display Size
Bigger displays reach wider audiences and produce an enthralling environment but are more expensive. Basic principles show that screen size will directly affect price, but the next topic can help with overall cost of your display.

Resolution/Processing
Resolution is determined by the pitch of pixels in an image. The smaller the pitch, the more pixels fit into a fixed dimension, resulting in a clearer image. Increasing the pixel count delivers higher levels of detail and smoother edges to the images. Understanding viewing distance and how it correlates to resolutions needs can decrease project budget. The processor is many times the most expensive part of the display and with newest technologies emerging, processing speed plays a critical role in image quality. 4K and Ultra HD displays have recently become popular but will dramatically increase the amount of processing needed to produce the desired image. High-quality processors run anywhere from around $8K to upwards of $30K depending on desires of complex playback capabilities.  If you choose to add a higher quality processor, it is important to understand that your project price will increase dramatically.

Wall Configuration
Complex LED video tile arrays are more expensive but ultimately command more attention. Fascinating video installation with missing tiles and various spacing between display sections will increase the price of the wall but can create a unique art installation. Curved LED walls can make the display that much more striking, but are higher priced due to the additional mechanisms and components that allow the tiles to curve.

Mounting
Today’s video wall mounts come in nearly every imaginable configuration and have slowly evolved into complex installations. Mounting solutions vary from display to display. Some displays may call for a custom mounting solution, while others are accomplished with standard mounting practices.

Indoor Vs Outdoor
Screen environment can have a large effect on price. Outdoor screens are IP rated to withstand dirt, wind and precipitation which makes these types of screen more costly to manufacture with module coatings and sealed enclosures. Indoor displays are usually much simpler in terms of cabinet and componentry, ultimately allowing price to remain lower.

LED display systems are proven superior solutions for broadcasting messaging. Retail stores have long relied on the robust and budget-friendly technology, which is now being adopted by a diverse spectrum of organizations, including houses of worships. The leaders and administrators at churches and temples have discovered that replacing conventional printed signage with vibrant and dynamic LED displays captivates audiences and can dramatically enhance the worship experience.

On October 11-12, the Kay Bailey Hutchinson Convention Center in Dallas, Texas will play host to the Worship Facilities Conference and Expo 2017 (WFX). PixelFLEX LED will be on hand at Booth 1301 to demonstrate how integrating LED at worship houses is an affordable and effective way to greet guests, make announcements, promote engagement, and spread the word.

“We are very fortunate at PixelFLEX LED to have a number of technologies that are being used to create dramatic and exciting worship experiences across the nation, which is why we always enjoy coming to WFX,” said David Venus, PixelFLEX LED Director of Marketing.

As leaders in modern worship environments begin to understand the importance of visual technology, especially among younger audiences, several churches have turned to PixelFLEX LED to help integrate custom LED solutions to meet their specific needs.

With different layouts in every city, airports can be stressful to navigate. This is especially true if you are on a layover and have to get to your next gate quickly. Searching for a sign listing gate information is often difficult, especially if there are none that are centrally located or eye-catching. With the introduction of LED video screen technology into airport designs, terminals across the world are gaining the ability to provide instant, attention grabbing information to the waiting passengers. In fact, a single LED display can provide passengers with dining and shopping information, gates and flight times, interactive experiences and art displays, all while bringing in ad revenue for the airport.

Those waiting for flights are known in the marketing industry as a captive audience. With little to do other than read or look at their phones, passengers’ eyes can easily be drawn to a well designed and deployed LED video display. Be it advertising promoting events and local business in the airport’s city, or even just giving information on the various bars and restaurant options available in the terminal. Traditional printed displays are becoming less effective in an age when everyone is staring at the screen on their personal device. Digital displays have become a necessity to promote and gra the attention of your consumer base.

The technology goes beyond merely displaying images and video, however. Modern displays actually give passengers an opportunity to interact. Particularly effective with wayfinding information, interactive displays vastly improve the overall customer experience. Passengers can plot their own route to their gate or even take a virtual tour of their terminal, learning about the various stores available to them along their route. This level of interaction turns waiting in the airport from a collective, depersonalized experience to one that is very individual focused, making the passenger feel as though their needs are of the utmost concern.

Perhaps the most surprising but most popular up and coming uses of LED digital signage is utilization for creative art experiences in the airport. Because the technology provides the ability to show vibrant, visually stunning content, airports have begun to implement it into their design in ways that are geared towards providing an aesthetically interesting experience to the passenger. In Denver, the airport train takes you through a tunnel decorated with LED lights and hundreds of small propellers. In Miami, international arrivals waiting in line are given a series of creative displays to engage them and make their waiting experience go by much quicker. While their ability to relay information is certainly ideal for the airports that use them, LED displays can also clearly be used for creative endeavors as well.

Whether it’s providing a more visually appealing space or giving passengers access to information quickly and easily, LED displays are changing the way passengers wait for their flights. PixelFLEX® is an innovative American-based LED manufacturer that offers creative solutions, dependable products, and reliable service for their award-winning LED display technologies and solutions. Check out the PixelFLEX® Product Selection Tool to find the ideal LED display for getting people where they need to go in your airport.

While content and messaging are the more exciting aspects of LED digital signage, the technical details matter as well. In order to create the best viewer experience with the greatest impact, the technical factors that affect LED digital signage must be understood and optimized. Specifications such as pixel pitch, resolution, brightness, and color calibration can help create successful displays that yield results. In this blog, PixelFLEX will explain a few of the technical features of LED signage and why they matter.

First of all, a light-emitting diode, or LED, is a semiconductor device that emits visible light when an electric current passes through it. LEDs require much less power than other light elements, making them more energy efficient. In addition, since they do not have filaments like those in incandescent lamps, there’s nothing to burn out or fail, giving them significantly longer life.

Here are some technical aspects of LED digital displays to consider:

Pixel Pitch

Pixel pitch is simply the distance from the center of one LED pixel to the center of the next pixel, measured in millimeters. The smaller the pixel pitch, the more pixels make up the image on a display, improving the resolution. However, this improved image quality comes at a higher cost. Pixel pitch typically ranges from 1mm up to 20mm for indoor LED displays and 6mm to 34mm for outdoor displays.

Resolution

Overall resolution is determined by pixel pitch, pixel technology, display size, and viewing distance. If your LED video wall has very detailed images or graphics or needs to be viewed clearly at a close distance, you’ll generally need a higher resolution or pixel pitch. This can be accomplished by creating a larger screen for lower resolutions, and smaller screens at higher resolutions. There are, of course, other factors that affect legibility, including font size and contrast.

Brightness

LED displays measure brightness by nit, which is the total brightness over one square meter of the display. This value takes into account all of the contributing factors to brightness, such as the number of LEDs per pixel, the pixel pitch, and the brightness of individual LEDs. The optimal brightness for a digital display depends on the sign’s exposure to the sun and whether the messaging must be readable both day and night. Brighter nits are better able to compete with the sun. Brightness typically ranges from 2,000 to 8,000 nits for outdoor displays and 1,000 to 2,000 nits for indoor displays. However, should an interior screen be exposed to a lot of natural light, a brighter display may be more desirable.

Color Calibration

Color calibration relates to brightness and contrast as well as the actual color desired. The video signal and the internal hardware are calibrated at the factory to make sure colors display true. This particular technical factor is directly related to the quality of the LED screen itself and can’t be changed with software or settings.

When purchasing LED digital signage, you’ll need to consider several aspects including viewing range, content, imagery, and messaging. With a complete understanding of the technical factors, viewing area, and content, you can choose the LED display that’s optimized for your intended audience. The experts at PixelFLEX have the knowledge and options to help you choose the ideal LED display to fit any need.

Billboards have been used for centuries to convey information on goods and services to those passing by. One major drawback to printed billboards, however, is that they require continuous replacement and frequent updating. Their one-dimensional format with minimal contrast can actually discourage visual engagement. Fortunately, as is typical in most industries—competition and innovation have generated improvements and driven quality. Today’s billboards use digital displays LED to captivate passersby. With digital communication as the premier tool for transmitting information and directing social interaction, businesses can more effectively promote their brand by using LED display technologies. As LED technology improves, so do opportunities to connect a proven marketing method with a contemporary digital approach.

According to a 2010 study by Arbitron, LED digital signs reach an astounding number of Americans: 70 percent have seen a digital video display in the past month, versus 43 percent on the Internet. In addition, 52 percent of teenagers and adults have viewed a digital display within the past week, and 75 percent of commuters recall seeing a digital billboard within the past month. Another study found that 63% more people noticed LED signs than traditional static advertising signage and billboards. Following a recent digital billboard campaign, the online platform Monster reported that Google searches for relevant keywords spiked by 20 to 25 percent. It makes sense then, in this context, that dynamic LED billboards ensnare the attention of potential buyers, stimulate sales, enhance the company’s image, and increase visibility to the business.

An estimated 71 percent of consumers claim to view and absorb large format advertising messaging. In fact, those who interact with outdoor advertising are 17 percent more likely to engage than those exposed to advertising on their mobile device. Let’s compare these trends to other marketing channels, such as TV and radio. Marketing through these media has become avoidable and in fact seen as a nuisance to consumers. Consumer marketing needs are evolving as buyers become savvier at thwarting advertisers. By 2020, the practice of ad-blocking is forecasted to cost advertisers and publishers between $16 and $35 billion in lost revenue.

Commercial properties are utilizing digital LED display billboards as another means to generate revenue and encourage business traffic. In most cases these properties are in highly trafficked areas, perfect for engaging potential customers. Brands get in front of many more eyes than would be possible with print and gives commercial landlords a second income source. Areas like entertainment and shopping centers in the downtowns of large metro areas are ideal locations and can reach thousands of people each day with effective LED signage.

Although there are various considerations to make when choosing and using LED billboards, it’s still a great investment compared to static print signage. One benefit of LED digital signage is cost savings over their print counterparts because updates on LED happen in real-time. Changing a printed sign requires time, money, and other resources. So, for technology beyond tradition, LED creates ads that enthrall the senses of the viewer. With LED signage, movement and animation attracts the eyes, giving brands a more impressive stance.

As digital signage becomes more popular as a tool to attract buyers, make announcements, and convey relevant information to the public, more installations are showing up outdoors to capture the attention of commuters, shoppers, and other passersby. Outdoor advertising is projected to be worth almost $51 billion by 2020, and most of this growth is in digital signage. That means digital signage solutions must be durable in the face of extreme temperatures, especially high heat. Fortunately, LEDs fit the bill.

The temperature is 100°F or more for a third of the year in Phoenix, Arizona, with the hottest temperature ever recorded being 122°F. So, if you live in Phoenix, or any other city where temperatures can get this hot, you will need outdoor digital signage able to withstand such sweltering temperatures. Believe it or not, winter sun is even harder on digital signs. The summer’s hazy skies can cut down on UV rays, while the crisp, clear winter sun lets everything through, and can really heat up a display.

Most light systems produce their own heat, forcing you turn the system off and wait for it to cool down before you can clean it, and with gasses or glass tubes, you have to worry about leaks and breaks. Florescent lamps also perform poorly under low temperatures. LEDs, however, are resilient under very high and very low temperatures, do not produce their own heat, have long lifespans, superior brightness, and are efficient and easy to clean.

Because LEDs don’t produce their own heat, you can place LED signage in places where heating from conventional sources would cause problems. The last thing you want to do is place a hot light near flammable objects like textiles, let alone foods you want to keep cool. Since LEDs don’t produce their own heat, they are less likely to be in an environment where they overheat—like being outdoors during the hottest summer days in Phoenix.

LEDs are a great outdoor signage solution because of their heat resistance. Standard electronic components are not well-suited to extreme temperatures unless they are designed from the outset to do so. The average digital display operates best between 32°F and 102°F. But what if you are in International Falls, Minnesota, where the average January day gets no higher than 15°F? Or in Phoenix in the thick of the summer? For LED digital signage systems, these extreme temperatures pose no problems.
