How to Find the Perfect High Quality LED Display
An LED display’s quality is mediated by a long list of marketable qualifications, like perceived image performance or dependability. But it’s hard to know precisely how these terms are being calculated when reading a specification sheet or brochure from a builder.
Think about this: fine pitch (or narrow pixel pitch) LED displays have been on the market for many years and the lifetime of an LED may be upwards of 100,000 hours, which is equal to more than 11 years. If LED displays have been sold for less than their normal lifetime, how can we be certain that we are investing in quality display mechanisms?
There are three key features to look for when seeking to select a high quality LED display:
- LED Display Image Performance: The first key to general performance is the individual LEDs. This is where the image is born, so the reliability, stability, and consistency of the individual LEDs are critical for image performance and long life. The size of the LED also rules the pitch of the pixels, which is the determining influence for resolution and thus image quality. The efficiency of the LED affects the total power intake, which affects the cost of operating and the thermal considerations of the installation. LEDs also have variations in brightness and quality during the production method and are routinely sorted (binned). Manufacturers have a choice of LEDs and high-quality companies should be using the highest quality workings.
- Drive Electronics: Second to the LEDs themselves, how they are driven electronically is serious in overall dependability, power, and image devotion. There are different drive approaches, and some are much better than others in general. Again, manufacturers have a variety of choices from external vendors and in-house development efforts which yield a wide variation of performance.
- Mechanical Design: The mechanical design—particularly as it relates to alignment and mounting depth —is dire for forming a seamless image with multiple blocks. The human eye is very sharp when it comes to uneven gaps between blocks, so keeping the seams seamlessly aligned and flush is important. If the modules are too close, the eye will notice light or white lines. If the modules are spaced too far, people will see dark or black lines. For service motives, it is very desirable to have front serviceability of individual tiles. This places even more demands on the mechanical design to both uphold alignment and allow front servicing.
As you can see, it all comes down to design selections and manufacturing.
So who do you trust to construct YOUR LED video wall?
Popshap is the leader in fine-pitch LED technology and interactive experiences. Many of our design and manufacturing procedures that allow us to precisely and reliably assemble LEDs developed over our history of modernization in this space.
We have the most experience and control over the LED workings themselves, which, as we emphasized above, is where it all starts. We use the finest grade LEDs with the best consistency and dependability. We have developed the specific manufacturing techniques to accurately and consistently assemble even all kinds of LED walls to make the world’s finest pitch LED displays.
Our electronic drive and calibration methods are the most efficient and truthful in the industry. Our mechanical designs are second to none in aspects of alignment, steadiness, serviceability, and thin form-factor.
We are tremendously proud of the industry that we helped build in fine pitch LED and what our consumers are doing with the technology is extraordinary. To see examples of LED wall installations, visit us
