So what is an LED screen?

LED screens are any type of screens that use a panel of LED emitters to create an image. This technology is used for TVs, phones tablets, and LED displays. Although TV screens are also referred to as LED screens, this article only refers to LED panel screens. These LED screen panels are used to build large and various LED screen designs.

What LED screen size do I need?

The great thing about LED panel screens is that you can build your own screen size and custom design. The reason is that the screen is built using panels and they can be put together to various standard designs and sizes, and also some cool custom designs. The main thing to think about is the application of the LED screen. Will the screen be used to project presentations and videos or is it to create a cool background effect? Most importantly to consider is the audience size, a bigger audience will need a bigger screen.

What about an indoor or outdoor screen?

It is quite important to specify whether the screen will be used indoors or outdoor and also the size of the venue. For outdoor, a specialised screen needs to be used that can weather the elements and can withstand the harsh rain, dust and sunshine. For indoor screens, how far the audience is from the screen becomes an important factor when picking what pitch to use. When renting the screen, it is also important to consider how the screen will be mounted. Will the screen need to be free-standing from the floor? Does the screen need to hang or be mounted on the ceiling? Alternatively, is there a truss structure needed to hang it if it’s in the great outdoors?

What is the story around the resolution and pitch of the screen?

Simply put, the pitch of the screen determines whats the minimum viewing distance for your audience to see a clear picture and not just the dots that make up the screen. For example, when the screen is rated as a p2.9 – this means that the audience will need to be 2.9 meters from the screen in order to see a good picture. The same goes for p3.9, p4.81, etc. The rule of thumb is that the smaller your venue, the smaller the pitch that you need to use. Similarly, a bigger venue will allow you to use a bigger pitch. As a result, a smaller pitch screen will generally cost more hence larger pitch screens are more cost-effective.
