1What is a LED?
LED is short for light-emiting diode. LED screens are made from many smaller light emitting diodes placed close together. Each LED emits three colors – Red, Green and Blue – which together light up as needed to create a range of colors. The colors combine to create an image.
2What is a Pixel?
Pixel is the diminutive for picture element. Pixels are points of light that illuminate at the same time to form letters, words, animations and videos. A pixel can be formed of one or more LEDs of the same color or of several colors. A pixel is the smallest element of a LED screen (or LED wall) that can be individually monitored. It can be switched off or switched on at different intensity levels.
3How are LEDs different from traditional screens?
While traditional LCD screens are typically used inside, LEDs are effective in practically any environment. They are designed to remain bright and visible even under direct sunlight and withstand most weather conditions. Unlike LCD screens, they are extremely durable and can be used for projects on a much larger scale.
4What is pixel pitch?
Pixel pitch is the distance between the center of an LED and the LED next to it. The smaller the pixel pitch, the better the resolution and picture quality of the LED.
5What can LEDs be used for?
LED screens can be used for practically anything. Any image or video can be shown on them. Our engineers here at Street Communication can manipulate LED screens into a wide range of shapes and sizes, creating endless possibilities. Furthermore, LEDs work well both indoors and outdoors as they are exceptionally durable.
6Which screen is best for me?
Choosing a screen is difficult because many factors need to be taken into account. Typically screens with smaller pixel pitches are superior indoors, while those with larger are better outside. We offer consultancy to help you reach a decision, so please reach out to us.
7How does the viewing angle affects the image quality?
Making the smartest choice for your LED display can be difficult depending on the context of your project. The viewing angle depends on the brightness of the screen. Depending on the angle the viewer is watching the screen, colors and saturation can vary and give the image a blur effect. To chose your display wisely, read more on viewing angles.
8How does the pixel pitch affect the screen resolution?
Before choosing your display your should know a few tricks that will help you take the right direction. Depending on the viewing distance needed for the project, the pixel pitch of the LED display is the first information you want to look for, read more on pixel pitch, resolution and ideal viewing distance here
9How are LED displays better than Video Projectors?
Video projectors often seem like an easier and cheaper solution, but they dont display the same quality image, the same brightness and can’t adapt to any context like innovative LED displays do. To understand better those differences and the assets of LED displays, learn more on the article.
