What exactly should you consider before buying an LED display?
It is the first question that comes to mind before purchasing any LED display panel.
The best part – this guide will make the entire process easy and seamless. Let’s dive right in:
Introduction to LED Technology
As the name suggests, these screens use light-emitting diodes (LEDs) to form images. It is the LEDs that form pixels, play an integral role in backlighting, and subsequently help in the image or video display.
Ideally, the LEDs have replaced the traditional cold cathode fluorescent.
Today, there are thousands of LED screen display brands in the market. Therefore, you must know the exact LED panel specification before choosing the best display solution.
Let me show you how to choose a suitable LED display board:
Chapter 1: Display Brightness
First, the LED screen brightness varies depending on the application or where you intend to use the display screen.
As a general rule, the brightness should allow users to see the screen without straining or any discomfort. Remember, the display plays an integral role to ensure a comfortable viewer visual experience.
In most cases, we measure the LED wall brightness interns of Nit (s) or candela/square meter (cd/m2). Of course, this refers to the amount of luminous intensity for every meter square on a light-emitting diode display screen.
From above, you can use cd/m2 interchangeably with Nits. That is 1 cd/m2 is equivalent to 1 Nits. Theoretically, you can use this to choose suitable brightness for your display LED screen.
|Application or Where to Install the Screen||Recommended Brightness|
|Normal indoor conditions such as living room – examples of screens include laptops or TVs||500 Nits to 1500 Nits|
|Indoor conditions but with more lighting or relatively bright indoor conditions||1500 Nits to 2500 Nits|
|Normal outdoor conditions with the sole purpose of countering daylight||2500 Nits to 5000 Nits|
|Outdoor conditions but areas subjected to direct sunlight||More than 5000 Nits|
In short, the LED display application will determine the amount of brightness. However, for outdoor advertising, it is important to be aware of applicable rules and regulations on light pollution.
But even as you focus on the brightness, it comes with some implications. Take for example:
- Excess brightness may cause eye strain or discomfort
- Higher brightness implies the advertising screen will use more power hence the operational costs will be higher
In case you are having a problem choosing a suitable brightness, NSE is here to help.

Chapter 2: Know LED Screen Pixel Pitch
If you look at the LED panel specifications, you will see:
The P in this case refers to the LED display board pixel pitch. While the number is the pixel pitch size. Take for example, the P4 LED screen, which simply implies this screen has a pixel pitch of 4mm.
Note: The pixel pitch is the distance between two adjacent pixels. In these panel displays, each LED is a pixel. That is, you will measure the distance from the center of two adjacent LEDs.
At times, other manufacturers refer to pixel pitch as pixel density or dot pitch
Usually, the pixel pitch determines the viewing distance. Consequently, it will determine the possible application.
Theoretically, you can get the optimal viewing distance of any LED screen by multiplying the pixel pitch by 2. Of course, the value here will be in meters.
Say for instance, the optimal watching distance for a P2 LED screen will be about 4 meters. Additionally, the pixel pitch will also affect the visual performance of the LED screen.
Remember, the pixel pitch can range from 2 to as high as 20 or more where possible. It will depend on the design and intended application of the screen.
Let’s summarize some vital effects of LED screen pixel pitch:
- Low pixel pitch implies the light-emitting diodes are closely packed together. Consequently, the viewing distance will be low.
- Lower pixel pitch implies high cost and vice versa
- In most cases, smaller pixels imply better display resolution. Therefore, high-resolution images are suitable for LED screens with small pixel pitch.
In the end, the optimal viewing distance will also affect the image quality.
A practical example is the viewing distance for an Out-of-home advertising 3D billboard is greater than the normal displays in closes rooms such as banks.

LED screen viewing angle refers to any position where people can view the screen without any image distortion or straining. You can determine the LED screen viewing angle either vertically or horizontally.
On average, modern screens can attain between 100° and 170° for both your vertical and horizontal viewing angles.
The display boils down to its grayscale characteristics. These are the various levels of color shades that an LED Screen can show.
The current level of intensity stands at 256 meaning we calculate the highest greyscale at 24 bits. On the contrary, the lowest amount is 1 bit or any two colors such as white and black.
Additionally, the LED packaging determines the viewing angle. For example, the SMD diodes offer better viewing angles.
Of course, this is not the case for the Direct In-line LEDs that do not favor wider viewing angles due to their structure.
Let’s look at some practical LED screen viewing angles:
|Typical Application||Vertical viewing angle in degrees (Theoretical value)||Horizontal viewing angle in degrees (Theoretical value)|
|Indoor concert||60||90 to 120|
|Outdoor concert||60 to 90||120 to 160|
|Small meeting presentations||60||60 to 90|

Chapter 4: LED Display Board Resolution
Having a higher resolution does not necessarily mean getting the best. It translates to the use of more LEDs. As a result, making the LED video wall more expensive with higher maintenance costs.
You should not consider the highest resolution but rather enough resolution to get clear content. Detailed content requires a higher resolution but simple graphics can do with a lower resolution.
If you want to install an LED screen by the roadside, it should be visible from some distance. It would therefore be inappropriate and expensive if you install a high-resolution screen.
On the other hand, if you install displays inside offices and stores, it means your audience is very close. For the finest picture quality, a high-resolution screen is the best option for your installation.
With the evolution in LED display advertising, there are many resolutions such as:
- 1920 x 1080 pixels which are regarded as full HD
- 3840 x 2160 pixels which is the equivalent of 4k
- 7680 x 4320 pixels which are equal to 8k

Chapter 5: Power Requirements for LED Display
We know the LED panel as a technology that consumes very little power. The power they consume majorly relies on the brightness required, the duration of use, and the type of display.
When we take a look at the type of display, we have variations in power consumption between indoor and outdoor LED panels. The outdoor display is viewed under direct sun therefore the brightness required is usually very high.
Let’s take an example of an image that is totally white but with a bit of black text.
This means that we will require very many diodes to be illuminated to achieve the required brightness. This will result in more power consumption compared to an entirely black image.
In addition to the power requirements, you should know the average power consumption. It should also include other aspects such as voltage and frequency.
Your manufacturer will include this information depending on the LED display board design. For instance, you may find a power rating such as 150W max.

Chapter 6: LED Display Configurations
When choosing the type of LED panel, you have to choose between these three types of configurations:
· Full Array LED
The LEDs here are uniformly distributed therefore emitting consistent light. This results in colors that are very dynamic and with clear lighting.
You can get Full Array displays with colored LEDs creating varied colors with deeper range. This configuration is the most expensive despite being the most sought-after.
· Edge Lit LED
This is the most common configuration mostly used in LED display TVs and monitors. The screens are thin because the LEDs are placed on the screen edges.
The downside of this is having a dynamic lighting problem due to reduced LEDs compared to a full array. This will require your screen to be properly configured to counter it.
· Direct-Lit LED
This is the cheapest configuration because it uses very few LEDs. They are bigger and individual control is not possible therefore can’t produce proper complex images.
However, they are your best bet for very big displays which don’t require high definition. They are normally deep to accommodate diffusers and the bigger LEDs.

Chapter 7: Drive IC and Software for Display Screen
Modern LED display controllers use special integrated software solutions to control all their operations. It will control many variables including:
- Refresh rate
- Processing data
- Displaying warning
- Converting signals from various devices such as USB or HMI into useful information for displaying
- Diagnosing the display screen, etc.
When it comes to the processes, there are options for:
- In-built processes
- Processor and display as different units
In most cases, the companies have custom IC and software for their display screens.
For custom display, most LED display systems have programmable options. You can program the LED display according to your requirements for unique display and rendering.

Chapter 9: LED Screen Display Lifespan
Determining the lifespan of LED screens is a bit tricky since you have to put various factors into play. Despite this, proper maintenance can give your display more than 10 years.
Many variables may affect the lifespan of your display screen such as:
· Extremely High Temperature
Installing an LED screen where the ambient temperature is extremely high without a proper cooling mechanism will affect the lifespan. Even though modern displays have effective cooling systems, at times you may need additional cooling systems.
Remember, extremely high temperature causes diodes degradation. Therefore, the lifespan will reduce significantly.
· Using No-recommended Power Supply
Don’t improvise any power systems. The power rating and frequency must match the manufacturer’s specifications.
· Failure of Other Components
The display has other components such as cooling systems alongside other accessories. Whenever such parts fail, remember the lifespan of your LED display will reduce significantly.
· Design and Configuration
The overall architecture will determine whether the LED panel will serve you for long or not. Take for example, inefficient cooling causes faster diodes degradation.
Apart from these, content with numerous color variations and brightness may affect the average service lifespan.
But even these LED screens still guarantee a long lifespan.
Note: Don’t buy an LED screen display that does not have a warranty.

Chapter 10: Type of LED Package for the Display Screen
Generally, there are 4 main LED packages for display screens. Each package has its unique benefits and limitations.
For this reason, during LED display board design, the manufacturer must specify the applications, viewing angle requirements, and energy consumption amongst others.
The most common display options are:
- Dual in-line package LEDs (DIP LEDs)
- Surface-mounted devices LEDs (SMD LEDs)
- Glue on board LED (GOB LEDs)
- Chip on board LED (COB LEDs)
· SMD LED Display
Surface Mount Devices (SMD) are components that are directly fixed on a printed circuit board. This means that their metal pins have not been soldered underneath the circuit board.
However, we apply this concept differently when it comes to LED panels. Here, SMD means that the Red, Green, and Blue diodes are inside a plastic encapsulation.
This encapsulation is then mounted on the surface of the display circuit board. Usually, encapsulation requires a very small space. For instance, you can have 3 diodes in a single chip.
This results in a very clear display containing minimal spaces between diodes. As a result, you get images having amazingly high resolutions.
Here are quick facts to note about this technology:
- Perfect choice for most indoor screens with medium screen brightness with a wide viewing angle
- Pixel pitch may range from P1 to P10 with high light efficiency
- Its rating ranges from about 50 lumens to 100 lumens and guarantees high light efficiency
- Most SMD screens are affordable
- Heat dissipation is high
· Dual in-line package LEDs (DIP LEDs)
DIP LEDs are the perfect choice for most LED advertising screens. These include applications such as digital billboards.
In most designs, you will find three main colors:
At the moment, you can choose DIP LED screens for a project requiring an extreme degree of impact. The screens offer unmatched durability.
Even as you consider LED screens with a dual-in-line package, it is important to note the following;
- Screen brightness is the highest of all the LED systems
- The rating ranges between 35 lumens to 80 lumens, but light efficiency is medium
- Pixel pitch can range between P3 to P20, with medium heat dissipation is also average
- However, the viewing angle narrow
· Glue on board LED (GOB LEDs)
GOB LEDs is a new technology that has revolutionized the LED screen industry. Its packaging resembles SMD LEDs.
Although the technology shares most features with the SMD LEDs, it offers better protection on the LED module. Therefore, it makes your screen resistant to dust, water, or any other form of damage.
It is for this reason that you can adapt the technology in most “harsh” environmental conditions. To some extent, it has solved problems associated with lamp protection.
Some notable features of GOB LED screens include:
- Offers an average screen brightness compared to COB LED
- Rating may range from 50 lumens to 100 lumens with high heat dissipation and light efficiency
- The pixel pitch varies from P1 to P10, with a wide viewing angle
- It offers the highest degree of protection
- Common applications include transparent LED screens, which use transparent material to package the LEDs
- It has a lower maintenance cost than the COB LED screen displays
· Chip on Board LED (COB LEDs)
There are some modern LED panels featuring the chip on board LED technology. Usually, the COB LED packaging combines nine or more diodes.
Consequently, the unique design greatly reduces the failure rate. Among the notable features of this technology include:
- Higher lumen density
- Easy to achieve small structural designs
- Excellent thermal performance
- High screen brightness with lumens varying from 80 to 150
- A wide viewing angle
- Pixel pitch can vary between P0.7 and P2.5
- The most expensive of all the available technologies
- Suitable for indoor applications or mini to micro-LED displays
In short, when it comes to packaging LEDs for display screens, you can choose DIP LED, COB LED, SMD LED or GOB LED.
As you have seen above, each technology has unique advantages and limitations.

Chapter 11: Dimensions of Display Screen
First, this narrows down to how big you want the screen to be. Of course, other factors such as applications or where you want to install the screen will play an important factor here.
You can choose modules varying from say 320 by 160 mm or 160 by 160 mm. Well, there are many sizes available depending on your specific needs and requirements.
These include even round LED displays.
As we mentioned earlier in the guide, other factors such as:
- Pixel pitch
- Viewing distance
- The application or installation area will determine the size.
Remember, the dimensions will also go hand in hand with the display screen’s weight. LED technology allows for ultrathin and lightweight displays.
Although this may sound like an odd way to evaluate quality:
In most cases, when you compare an original LED screen and a counterfeit – the counterfeit tends to be lightweight. Usually, this is attributed to the substandard materials they use.

Chapter 12: LED Screen Display Refresh Rate
While evaluating LED panel specifications, evaluating the refresh rate is a critical aspect you cannot ignore. The refresh rate determines the display screen’s speed – that is, how fast it can display data.
The unit for display refresh rate is Hertz (Hz). However, even as you evaluate the LED screen refresh rate, there are a few points to consider:
- Screen with high refresh rate updates faster, hence smooth display
- A 1,563Hz refresh rate means the screen will refresh 1,563 times per second
- When it comes to LED panel refresh rates, the most common options available are 1,920 Hz or 3,840Hz
- High refresh rates reduce eye fatigue
There are many ways to increase LED screen display such as:
- Choose an IC module that can guarantee a high refresh rate
- A high-end IC can guarantee a faster refresh rate
- Choose a reliable control software
Note: Again, don’t confuse the refresh rate with the frame rate. Frame rate determines the number of times the system sends a new signal to the LED display processor.

Chapter 13: LED Screen Contrast Ratio
Usually, we use this variable to evaluate the darkest black and brightest white on advertising LED screens.
When an LED screen display guarantees high contrast ratio, you will get high-quality color. On the other hand, an LED panel with a low contrast ratio will show greyish images.
Ideally, you can use the contrast ratio to measure the existing difference between the black and white pixels. Under normal circumstances, you will find values such as:
- 20000:1 or even higher
Grey Scale of LED Screen Display
Closely related to the contrast ratio is the grey scale. It is an important parameter you will use to determine the number of colors an LED screen can display.
Of course, this will also determine the display image quality. Typically, modern LED panels can produce 16 bits. That means, for the red, green, and blue colors, it can produce a total of 48 bits. Of course, the 48-bit is the total color depth.
Theoretically, a high-end LED screen can produce over a trillion different colors. The result is high-quality images and graphics.
While at this, it is also crucial to mention the synchronized LED display vs unsynchronized LED displays.
Consider Synchronous vs Asynchronous Displays
How the LED panel functions like a computer monitor is what we refer to as a synchronized display. If you are in multimedia advertising, then this LED panel comes highly recommended.
This is because the many grayscale colors you need for such images can easily be displayed.
In unsynchronized displays, non-gray scale images can be stored and auto-played. You can use a PC to edit the images and use a serial interface to transmit them to the screen for auto-playing.
Unfortunately, not very many grayscale colors can be displayed in unsynchronized. This is the reason we prefer to use them majorly in displaying characters.

Chapter 14: LED Panel Installation Methods
Modern LED Displays are usually easy to install. They come with many support structures and magnets that help with the same.
We have various ways in which LED wall displays can be mounted and installed. We have stand-alone installations where a rigid stand is placed at the bottom of the display.
You can as well hang the display from the ceiling using steel beams that are designed for that exact purpose. It is easily visible even from far and is best suited for crowded places.
Alternatively, you can as well mount the display on a wall surface. Such installations are best suited for office buildings or shops for close visibility.
Other mounting options may include:
- Roof installation
- Ceiling hung installations
- Pole mounting, etc.
In short, the LED display board design alloys for unlimited installation options. It will depend on a convenient section.
Remember, you can also have “mobile” installations. It is a better option, especially where the LED display application requires moving from one section to another. A good example is the taxi LED display systems.
Note: Installing LED display process varies depending on the design. Always read the manufacturer’s manual to learn the installation process for your LED screen model.

Chapter 15: Quality Compliance and Certification
It is important to purchase an LED display board that complies with the necessary safety rules and regulations. Usually, this is an indication that the screen has been tested and quality verified.
Besides, it is an indication that the LED screen will work as intended. Among the key quality standards and certifications include:
- IP rating – a high IP rating implies the LED video wall can serve perfectly in both indoor and outdoor conditions. The IP rating
- CE certification
- FCC compliance
- UL certification
- EMC testing and compliance
Where possible, you can request for quality testing reports. It will help you evaluate whether the LED display advertising panel is suitable for a specific application.
Chapter 16: Understand How LED Display Works
Ideally, the working principle of LED screen is based on the following fundamental aspects:
This display is majorly composed of numerous LEDs placed very close to each other. These LEDs are the ones responsible for creating an image on the screen when you power them.
We have three colors that make up an LED namely Red, Green, and Blue. These colors are mixed additively together to display an array of other different colors.
A combination of the above three colors is what we call a pixel. The display can achieve any shade of color by simply having the strength of the diodes attuned.
You can see the colored pixels when you look extremely closely at an LED screen. This array of colored pixels is what forms the images.
Of course, this is mainly how the panels work.
However, if you wish to use the display to display other content. You will create the content and then transmit it to the LED processor.
The processor will display the content according to the preset parameters. Also, the parameters will vary depending on the content type.

Chapter 17: Signal Input Options for LED Screen
Whenever you are buying an LED screen, definitely there is specific content you wish to display. Of course, this will also go hand in hand with the file format.
Remember, you can display numbers, animations, videos, music, or any graphic.
We have several inputs that you can use to display information on LED Displays. Some of the inputs include DVI, VGA, DisplayPort, and HDMI.
The connectors you want to use should match those you have on your computer. However, technology has allowed cables and adapters that you can use on one input with a different one.
DisplayPort comes highly recommended since it supports very high resolutions (4K) at 60 frames/second. HDMI also works quite well because the cables can carry audio signals besides transmitting video signals.
VGA is quite an old school and should be your last option when everything else is not available. Their clarity is typically very low compared to other connectors.
Also, there are USB and cloud systems.
Remember, the modern LED display screen also offer wireless connectivity. Once you set up the cloud system, simply upload content from your computer. The display screen will automatically show the information according to the set variables.
Chapter 18: How to Maintain LED Display Screen
For you to comfortably carry out maintenance on your LED Display, you have to access it either from the front or the back. Maintenance carried out from the front is usually quite expensive and a complex display design complicates it more.
It is advisable to install such screens by mounting them on a wall since you won’t access them from the back. Screens that are maintained from the back are best installed in places that are easily accessible.
Note: Opening the LED screen display may invalidate your warranty. As long as your LED panel is within the warranty period, always contact the manufacturer. They will direct you accordingly.
However, if you decide to carry out the maintenance process, it is important to pay attention to the following:
- Maintain suitable temperature – remember, high temperature may cause LED degradation
- Ensure the panel is not exposed to humidity
- Always repair the LED panel when the power is off
- For environments with low protection such as outdoors, the LED panels may be subject to dust, moisture, etc. Cleaning and blowing the dust must be part of routine maintenance
- Always follow the recommended sequence for turning ON/OFF the LED display
- Fasten all bolts and nuts
