The most important aspect of comparing LED manufactures is to make sure that the product specifications are exactly the same. There are a few questions to ensure you always get the industry specific information from LED companies, instead of simply receiving sales literature from each potential manufacturer.
*Ask questions with specific answers pertaining to the product they are recommending.
*This will ensure you can directly compare number for number with other potential suppliers.
(3) LEDs per pixel – (1) Red, (1)Green, and (1) Blue
*The number of LEDs per pixel will directly affect the overall number of LEDs per sign face. In essence, two companies could be quoting the exact same sign matrix, but company (A) has (4) LEDs per pixel and company (B) has (3) LEDs per pixel. This will mean that company (A) product has 25% more resolution on the exact same surface area.
*Some manufacturers have larger boarders around the perimeters of their displays and some manufacturers have no boarder. In the example above this company has a 2″ boarder around the perimeter of their display. Make decisions based on true numbers not sale pitch.
Ex. Virtual Resolution (8)mm = True Resolution is actually, (16)mm
Virtual Resolution (10)mm = True Resolution is actually, (20)mm
Virtual Resolution (12.5)mm = True Resolution is actually, (25)mm
The only way to improve the clarity of an LED display is to have more LEDs on a given screen size.
