LED walls and screens are a fantastic way to create drama and add excitement, and they can be creatively incorporated into any event or occasion. Designing fun and exciting interactions with attendees is the best way to make an event unforgettable. An LED wall connects with guests and visually captivates audiences, all the while getting your brand noticed and message delivered. Having a dynamic LED wall gains the attention of visitors and helps motivate social interaction and brand awareness. LED walls enhance your company image while increasing visibility to your business. Budget restraints may deter companies from purchasing a LED video wall, but purchasing is not the only option when it comes to customizable LED applications. LED walls can be rented and configured with custom options tailored to the user’s needs.
When choosing an LED wall or screen rental for an event, it is critical to understand the available options and configurations in order to create the most enthralling environment possible. Unfortunately, researching LED options can be at first overwhelming. Industry jargon can be hard to wade through, but understanding the different aspects of display technologies will ultimately help make the best decision for the event and space.
There are three main components to consider: screen size, pixel pitch, and screen structure.
Screen size is one of the most important features when selecting the right LED wall because inappropriate size can hinder the audience’s interaction. There is a vast array of sizes to choose from for many different locations and crowd size. There is no magic formula, but first consider the size of the audience, total size of the location, and what will be displayed on the screen. A good rule is with 500 viewers or more, chose a screen of at least a 17 feet wide for optimal visual influence.
Pixel pitch is another important property and is defined as the distance in millimeters between two pixels on an LED board. Pixel pitch directly correlates the display resolution and optimal viewing distance. A lower pixel pitch means more pixels are used to make up the image, thus improving the resolution and optimal viewing distance. The lower the pixel pitch, the closer a viewer can stand to your display and still have a great resolution. Pixel pitch is important in determining the minimum required viewing distance for a clear image. The higher the pitch, the farther the required viewing distance.
LED screens are only as effective as the structures that support them. Screen structures can either be mobile or modular. Mobile screens are prebuilt and attached to a vehicle or other means of transportation. Mobile units are more cost effective and quicker to activate but may be limited by space constraints. When opting for mobile structures, ensure the venue has adequate space to navigate and place the screen. Modular units come in small LED tiles that are built out using trussing. Modular walls are popular with custom shapes and indoor events since they are built out on-site and can be fully customized to the available space.
