Choosing the best suitable LED screen for your project may be complicated, depending on your needs, desires and budget. We, at Street Communication have a large range of different displays to propose. Our team, that has more than 10 years experience in LED engineering, will always provide the best advices for a perfect result.
We analyse all the project data ( Architecture, external conditions, viewing distance needed, budget… ) and propose the best solution to enable you to stand out and gain visibility. Understanding the different aspects of display technologies will ultimately help you make the best decision for your company and space.
The quality and viewing distance needed in order to have the best results with LED screen displays depend on their pixel pitch. The pixel pitch is the distance from the center of an LED cluster (or pixel) to the center of the next LED cluster, measured in millimeters. Pixel pitch typically ranges from 4mm up to 20mm for indoor LED displays; for outdoor displays, pixel pitch can range from 10mm to 34mm or higher. The smaller the pixel pitch number is, the more pixels used to make up the image on your display, thus improving the resolution and optimal viewing distance. What does this mean in plain terms? The lower the pixel pitch, the closer a viewer can stand to your display and still have a great resolution. To see and understand better the differences and the final results of various pixel pitch, just watch the video bellow:
The refresh rate of a LED screen is the number of times in a second that the LED screen hardware draws the data. This is distinct from the measure of frame rate in that the refresh rate for LED screens includes the repeated drawing of identical frames, while frame rate measures how often a video source can feed an entire frame of new data to a display
Chart of which resolution is worth it, DVD, 720p, 1080p or Ultra HD (4k) The resolution needed depends on the size and distance of the television, due to the limitation of the human eye
A higher resolution might not be worth it for you. The resolution that you need depends on three factors: the size of your television, how close you sit to it, and what kind of footage you are watching.
The human eye of a person with 20/20 vision (6/6 in Europe) can only distinguish detail 1/60 of a degree apart. This means that at a certain distance, for a specific size, you will not be able to see the full resolution of a screen. The chart plots that distance for different screen sizes at the four main resolutions (480p, 720p, 1080p and Ultra HD).
Using this data, if you are siting eight feet away from your television, you will not see a difference between 720p and 1080p for a television under 40″ in size. Similarly, the new Ultra HD resolution is only worth it if you have a television bigger than 60″ and are sitting relatively close to it.
