LED screens are widely in use these days, be it for domestic or commercial purposes. These have now become the standard technology for display purposes. Electronic devices like mobile phones, TVs, tablets, computer monitors, laptop screens, etc., use a LED display to display their output. And if you are looking for a smart advertising solution for your business, digital billboards can make your brand stand out from the rest. With a sharp, vivid display, you can capture the attention of passersby promptly. The most significant benefit is that it is very cost-effective and has low energy consumption.

Moreover, LEDs have several advantages over other light-emitting sources that can be used alternatively. Besides being power efficient, LEDs have tremendous light intensity and produce better light. These are low maintenance and are highly resistant to damage.

These are the following things to keep in mind while choosing an LED Screens:

Brightness

The brightness of the LED screen is one of the essential features that you need to be cautious about. A screen that is too bright will cause discomfort, while a too dim screen will hamper visibility. Therefore, go for the one with suitable nits. The common brightness conditions are 800 to 1,500 nits for indoor displays and 5000+ for outdoor displays.

Pixel Pitch

Pixel pitch is a very prominent feature as it affects the optimum viewing distance and the visual performance of an LED screen. It tells us about the pixel density and resolution. A smaller pixel pitch indicates higher pixel density and higher resolution.

IP Rating

An IP rating of LED light is the measurement of protection that LED light will have against liquid (water) and solid (dirt, dust, etc.) objects. Indoor and outdoor LED lights come with different Ingress Protection (IP) ratings. There are two numbers in the IP rating; the first number (0 to 6), in a solid IP rating. It shows the resistance against solid objects. The second number (0 to 8) indicates the safety against water. The most used waterproof LED lights are IP65 LED lights.

Refresh Rate

Refresh Rate is the value that tells how many times per second screen displays data. The minimum refresh rate is 400 Hz, and it may go as high as 9000 Hz, but it may result in reduced brightness. To display beautifully and vibrantly, the refresh rate needs to be at least 1000Hz.

SMD and DIP

DIP has 3 separate diodes, whereas SMD has seamless diodes formed by 3 colores mounted on a die. Both the concepts do the same job, but DIP is faster and easier to manufacture; therefore, it is cost-effective. SMD, on the other hand, gives high resolution due to its compact form. DIP is the most durable and stable solution for outdoor led display. And SMD is more popular now due to its better picture quality, higher resolution, and wider viewing angle, best suited for indoors.
