Parts Of LED Poster Screen

Poster displays are assembly of parts and components. The number of parts or components depend on the design and configurations of the display screen.

Some of the most common parts include:

Display Screen: This is where your adverts or information will appear. The screen uses LEDs. The displays come in different sizes and configurations.

Outer frame: The frame forms the outer protective structure which encloses other components of the poster display screen.

Control system: It consists of various integrated circuits (ICs). The control systems form the poster display’s “brain”. It stores information, allows you to control various parameters, receives commands and controls all functions.

There are two options here:
1. Synchronous control system – it displays information in real-time. Once you connect the poster display to computer, it will display content on the screen.

2. Asynchronous control system – it does not display the same content on your computer screen. It will display content in the memory. Therefore, the memory storage will limit the amount of content you can display.

Power supply: Receives power from the power grid, then steps it down to safe voltage and current.

Input/output ports: It is a plug and play port allowing you to upload content or information in the poster display. USB and HDMI remains the most common options.

Mounting options: They may include wall mounting or ceiling mounting. However, these two come as additional accessories.

Features Of LED Poster Display

Over the years, LED posters have evolved with manufacturers incorporating a range of features. So, whenever you are shopping for any LED poster screen, try to evaluate every feature. It is the only sure way to get the best poster display.

Glue On Board (GOB) LED: GOB is a progressive technology which uses epoxy glue to protect LED modules.

The glue in GOB is:

  • UV resistant
  • Dustproof
  • Shockproof
  • Waterproof

Additionally, it helps in heat dissipation, while guaranteeing high transparency. As a result, this improves performance of LED poster screen.

IP Rating: IP rating shows the degree of protection against liquid and solid materials. Of course, the design, material and assembly techniques will determine the degree of protection from water and dust. For instance, an IP65 poster display is waterproof rated.

Supported Video Format: You should consider a digital poster display which supports a range of file formats. This way, you will eliminate possible incompatibility issues.

Multiple Input Options: Modern LED poster screens feature a range of inputs/outputs such as LAN, RJ 45, USD and HDMI. Therefore, you can easily integrate the poster display with the existing systems.

For example, you may consider:

  • HD image of 5000:1
  • High quality LEDs
  • High performance driving IC
  • 2880Hz refresh rate will guarantee unmatched

In such circumstances, you will get high quality graphics or images. However, the Nits brightness will depend on where you plan to install LED poster screens.

Base of Poster Display: For the free standing LED poster screens, the base is a critical feature. It should be stable enough to support weight of the screen. Furthermore, the base may have wheels. This will make it easier to move the poster display from one point to another.

Cloud Management: With this functionality, you can manage content the digital poster displays real-time. You can update content remotely using your phone or iPad. Where possible, you may choose LED poster screen with live streaming capability. With the asynchronous and synchronous controller, you can live stream ads easily. Remember, most digital LED posters can support mobile Apps and windows systems.

Poster Display Structure: You should go for durable, lightweight, portable and slim structure. Additionally, you should evaluate the brackets, which are easy to assemble and disassemble.

Seamless Splicing: With this feature, you can connect the same screens for seamless video and image display. The poster display screen should have easy to assemble and disassemble connectors.

Multiple Installation Options: The ability to install LED poster video display in different ways makes it adaptable in most advertising platforms. You can cascade, use brackets of standing base.

Plug And Play Capability: LED poster video display screen will automatically play videos, images or text from your USB device. You don’t have to reinstall or reconfigure the software.

Managing Dynamic Content In Poster LED Display: In most cases, poster LED display screens have vertical format. Therefore it implies you must have content that can fit the display screen.A good poster display should have easy to use tools for easier video and image configuration.

  • Type of LED and module size
  • Ingress protection rating
  • Contrast ratio
  • Service lifespan
  • Processor and driving IC
  • Screen resolution & display area
  • Viewing angle
  • Control system asynchronous or synchronous
  • Power consumption/input power specifications
  • Color temperature
  • Ease of servicing
  • Processing speed
  • Dimming capability
  • Size and net weight
  • Brightness
  • Refresh rate
  • Dimensions
  • Working temperature

How Poster LED Screen Works

There are two critical aspects here:

  • Knowing how LED screen works
  • How to display adverts on the poste display

How LED Display Work

LED screens use light emitting diodes forming display cell. It is the display cell that forms pixel, which produces a multiple color options.

LED screens use light emitting diodes forming display cell. It is the display cell that forms pixel, which produces a multiple color options.

Direct lit: These displays are large, affordable, display less complex image and not suitable for HD image display.

Edge lit: Screens are thinner since LEDs are on the screen’s edge. It is important to configure the screen properly to avoid dynamic lighting problems. The edge lit poster displays are popular in most advertising.

Full array: Allows for dynamic lighting and color display. These LED screens are the most expensive.

Within these display screens, there are blue, red and green LEDs. By adjusting LED intensity, you can form billions of color options. When you combine these pixel modules, the end result is a complete LED display for making posters.

How to Display Images/Videos On LED Digital Poster Display

Apart from the screen, there is the controller system and power supply on the back panel. The controller is an intelligent integrated circuit with the ability to:

  • Monitor condition of LED
  • Image displaying sequence
  • Control brightness of LED panel

In fact, this is the “engine” of poster display. It coordinates all functions for seamless view.

Now, how do you integrate all these?

1. Prepare the image or video you want to display

2. Connect your LED poster screen display and power it ON

3. Program the poster display (where possible)

4. Transmit the advert (image or graphic) to the display panel via USB, HDMI, Bluetooth or cloud system

The controller will coordinate all operations depending on the program.

There are two main types of digital poster displays in the market – LED and LCD poster displays. However, choosing between the two types of digital displays can be an overwhelming task without a complete comparison.

Let’s make this simple and straight forward:

LED Poster Display LCD Poster Display
Power consumption Consumes less power, hence energy efficient Uses more power than LED display
Refresh rate High refresh rate hence, better picture quality and performance Relatively low refresh rate, hence LED display have better picture quality
Brightness Higher brightness, hence suitable for most outdoor applications. Therefore, you don’t have to worry about strong ambient light Nits brightness is lower than LED. Hence, the brightness is lower than the LED display
Viewing angle Wider viewing angle Narrow viewing angle compared to LED
Durability Most LED poster can serve you for more than 80,000 hours LCD poster display last for only 2 to 3 years
4K display Can support 4k display Cannot support 4k display
Backlighting technology Uses light emitting diodes Uses cold cathode fluorescent lamps
Initial cost High Low
Thickness Available in extremely thin sizes You will hardly find thinner designs since it is not possible
