Indoor and Outdoor LED Displays

Engage viewers with powerful messages

The ability to attract consumers' attention is becoming increasingly complex and competitive, which leads companies and advertisers to seek solutions that can attract more and more of the public in a modern and effective way.

In addition to the Digital Storefronts LED Displays are the ideal solution to captivate spectators because they are vibrant, attractive and modular. This advertising medium has been growing and is increasingly popular due to several factors.

In addition to LED monitors becoming the more affordable manufacturing costs continue to fall their image quality has improved significantly making the monitors to be used in various indoor and outdoor applications.

Outdoor LED screens are specially designed to withstand different weather conditions and are bright enough to be visible in full sunlight. We only need to look at iconic city centres like New York or Tokyo to realise the importance of LED screens, and how impactful their broadcast content is. Such success has led to the adoption of these Outdoor LED screens over the last decade in hundreds of cities in every corner of the planet.

In indoor environments, such as shops, shopping centres, museums, companies and stadium interiors, indoor LED screens are also gaining more and more notoriety, making it possible to schedule dynamic content and instantly change videos, images or messages on LED screens, which can hardly go unnoticed, even when viewed from long distances.

With this digital evolution, in addition to saving on printing posters and vinyls, the entire flow associated with their distribution in the networks of the locations involved is minimised.

The use of the Digital Signage World VDS and Amplitude Net, gives you the ability to take overall control from content creation to delivery, by defining the timing of each content to be displayed on the screens. This gives total flexibility to deal with seasonal promotions, special events or current trends throughout the year, so that in real time, each LED Indoor and Outdoor display can respond quickly to the needs of each location or group of locations.

This technological advance will allow your promotional communication to easily stand out from the current crowd and your competitors, generating a great boost in the commercial and marketing dynamics of your company.

Our WorldVDS software of Digital Signage in LED screens, allows the most varied animations to be created, in order to present content with movement, which can hardly go unnoticed, even when viewed from long distances.

What is the LED?

LED, short for Light Emitting Diode, emits light through electromagnetic radiation. Often referred to as "cool light," unlike traditional incandescent bulbs, LEDs don´t rely on heating metal tubes to produce light. Instead, the diode emits light as electricity flows through two specially coated silicon semiconductors, resulting in low voltage and energy dissipation

Made from durable materials with no moving parts, LEDs are usually covered in soft plastic, which makes them more durable. Their operation produces little heat, reducing the need for cooling electronics.

The first LED was invented by Russian inventor Oleg Losev in 1927. Originally, LEDs were limited to infrared, red and yellow, and could be used in devices ranging from remote controls to watches on the radio

Back in 1994, Japanese scientist Shuji Nakamura was able to create a high performance blue LED. Later, white and green LEDs appeared, revolutionizing LEDs in light display technology.

How does an LED display work?

The LED display consists of an array of multiple LEDs. By varying the brightness of each LED, these diodes together form an image on the display.

The principles of color additive mixing are used to create a vibrant color image, where new colors are created by mixing different colors of light Red, green and blue LEDs are arranged in a fixed pattern at the LED display. These three colors together make pixels. Several colors can be produced by varying the voltage of the diode. When an LED screen is viewed from a distance, an array of colored pixels are combined to form a visible image.

How much power does an LED display use?

LED technology is known for its exceptional energy efficiency, which is why we are seeing so much adoption for energy efficient LED bulbs today. The power consumption of the diodes in an LED display varies depending on factors such as display type, brightness, and application.

There are many different types of LEDs and displays. For example, indoor displays have different energy consumption compared to an outdoor digital sign that needs to be seen even in direct sunlight. Light is also an important consideration. The display should provide clear images without being too blurry. Outdoor LED displays in daylight should be brighter than in the evening.

Moreover, what is shown in the show is also important. LED displays convert colored diode lights into images. Thus, displaying an entirely white image with black text would require much brighter diodes – and consequently, more power – than displaying white text on a black background.

How long does an LED display last?

Predicting the exact lifetime of an LED display is challenging due to a variety of influencing factors. However, with proper maintenance, displays can last for more than a decade. As with any other electronic device, its longevity is affected by daily use and the environment. Bright images and high brightness can cause faster deterioration compared to dark images and low light settings. Environmental factors such as temperature and salinity in the air also play their role.

The light output from the diodes will gradually decrease over the lifetime of the LED display. The extent of this reduction depends on the type of diode and the generation. Many LED displays tend to operate below their maximum brightness, so brightness reduction is rarely a major issue.

What is pixel pitch and display resolution?

The spacing between the diodes of the LED display determines its resolution. Called the pixel pitch, this distance is measured from the center of each red, green, and blue diode to the center of the adjacent set. Each pixel is made up of a set of diodes.

If an LED display has a pixel pitch of 1 cm, there may be 100 x 100 pixels per square metre of display. The dimensions of the display are usually expressed as two numbers indicating the width and height in pixels. So, if you have a screen of 6 x 8 meters with a pixel pitch of 1 cm, the resolution will be 600 x 800 pixels.

An LED screen can have a pixel pitch of only one millimeter at a few centimeters.

What resolution should I choose?

The resolution required for an LED display varies depending on the viewing angle. Consider where your audience will be watching the game from. When you approach low-power LEDs, where there is a large gap between the diodes, seeing the displays can be difficult.

There is usually a correlation between display resolution and price. Higher resolutions have more diodes per square meter, resulting in higher cost per square meter.

For example, if you place a digital sign on the side of a highway or in front of a building, you may notice it from a considerable distance. In such cases, choosing a high-quality display can be unnecessary and prohibitively expensive. Conversely, if the display is grounded in a department store, the audience will be much closer to it, creating a more appropriately elegant display

A useful guideline for LED displays is 1 mm per meter in viewing distance.

What is nits?

The nit measurement is used to evaluate the brightness of an LED display. Nit is another word for candela per square metre. The candela is the light used in the International System of Indicators (SI). It is a measurement that measures how the human eye perceives light in different colors, making it ideally suited for reflectance calculations One candela is roughly equivalent to the amount of light produced by a regular light bulb.

It is important to note that the nit unit is different from the ANSI lumens measurement for the brightness of video projectors. These two measures are neither interchangeable nor directly correlated.
