What’s An LED Video Wall?
Some don’t have a clue what an LED video wall is. That’s why it’s important to begin with a definition of what it is. LED is a short form of light-emitting diode. This is a semi-conductor light source.
Initially, LED was quite costly, up until recent times. Today, LED is available and easily accessible to many applications and industries altogether. Since LED displays don’t need a frame around them, you can tile them to any size on the wall. You can equally curve them and turn them into unique shapes.
So, what are some of the benefits of an LED display that you probably will miss in other displays?
- High-quality and high-resolution visuals.
- It’s available in many different shapes and sizes.
- It’s a self-emitting light source.
- Long life span.
- Low maintenance needed.
- Low power consumption.
- Appropriate for both indoor and outdoor use.
How Do You Use LED Video Walls?
You can use these babies pretty much anywhere you want to. One way or the other, you might have already seen LED video walls – sometimes without even noticing. Some of the most common places to see LED video walls include:
- Simulation systems.
- Art displays.
- Amusement park rides.
LED video walls can connect with almost anything. Talk about your video conferencing equipment, broadcast video systems, computers and other sources that you can use to showcase custom content. If you want, you can also come up with touch-sensitive interactive displays.
Indoor Vs. Outdoor LED Video Walls – Which One Should I Choose?
The best part about LED video walls is that they can work for both indoor and outdoor applications. However, when you want to use an outdoor LED application, it must meet certain standards like weather ratings.
The audience for an outdoor LED wall is usually further away from the display than that of an indoor unit. Thus, they need a particular pixel density. Indoor LED walls are mostly dimmer, having more pixels per square inch – this is a high pixel density.
Indoor LED video walls are normally dimmer than their counterparts. They have more pixels per square inch, which means a higher pixel density. An outdoor LED wall can even be ten times brighter than its counterpart. This is considerably bright – bearing in mind that indoor displays alone are usually twice as brighter as the average TV.
How Much Does an LED Video Wall Cost?
There are several factors that contribute to the final cost of an LED video wall. They include the following:
- The kind of installation – wall mount, ceiling mount, or free standing.
- Indoor or outdoor installation.
- Video processing requirements.
- The complexity of the setup process.
- Curved, transparent, or flat design.
- The overall display size.
- Pixel density or the pixels per square inch.
Most companies budget anywhere between $50k and $350k for their LED video wall projects. We at VIBE Design Group can give you a quote depending on the type of LED wall that you want for your business.
What Should I Consider Before Installing an LED Video Wall?
