Roll-Up LED Screen: Everything You Should Know

Roll-Up LED Screen

If you’re only familiar with the non-flexible indoor fixed LED screens, it is difficult to believe that such technology as the rollable LED screen exists. Roll-up TVs are more popular today than we think, especially among business owners. This results from its soft and flexible nature, easy installation, and ability to fit into places where indoor LED TVs cannot. Let’s dive into all there is to know about the rollable screen without further ado

What Is a Roll-Up LED Screen?

Also called a roll-up LED display, this flexible screen is a visual display that can easily be bent, twisted, or rolled up without breaking. It’s very much like a newspaper. This roll-up screen is constructed using a supplement or rubber, which is the major reason for its flexibility. 

The screen can easily be set up and does not require a wired connection. Roll-up screens are taking over the traditional LED displays in the commercial world. In terms of advertisements, they are a top display choice. Not to mention that it is waterproof and dustproof. 

Viewing on the adaptable roll-up display is feasible because of OLED technology. Thinking about it, it is not news that the OLED is more advanced than the LED, where light takes place from the back panel. Since the requirements for the back panel are removed, it becomes possible for the display to bend. 

As you might have guessed, this technology shares a few similarities with the roll-up LCD screen, but we won’t discuss them today.

How Does Roll-Up LED Work?

As said earlier, the LED roll-up screen uses OLED technology, so it doesn’t need additional backlighting for display like most conventional displays. The screen rolls up around a cylinder inside its storage housing. This means you can effortlessly roll the screen into its storage cassette when not in use. 

This results from the curly brace at the back of the screen, which enables it for motorized folding. The average roll-up time is 10 seconds; however, it may vary depending on screen size. The rolled-up TV stays neatly tucked in its cassette until it receives a command to untuck. 

Depending on the manufacturer, the folding/rolling procedure can be initiated by a remote, voice command, or onboard.

Features of LED Roll-Up Screen

Let’s look into some of the features of the LED roll-up screen.

Energy Efficiency

This technology’s long-lasting battery life makes it stand out from the average LED display. It can retain energy for a very long period without electricity and without reducing the image’s quality.


This is a major feature and what makes this technology unique. The device is very soft and flexible. The ability to manipulate your screen’s shape without much protocol is an additional advantage of the flexibility of this device.

Pixel Pitch

Depending on the model and manufacturer, the pixel pitch of roll-up screens may vary. On average, it can range from 0.6 to 1.5mm. Note that a smaller pixel pitch equals a bigger image quality.

Resolution and Viewing Angle

LED roll-up screens have a wide view angle, which ensures sharp image viewing from different angles. Resolution is determined by the average amount of pixels the screen model has.


The screens are made with high-quality material that enables them to withstand continuous rolling and unfolding without wearing out. It can last as long as you follow the manufacturer’s instructions while in use.

Applications of LED Roll-Up Screen

There are various uses of this technology. The roll-up screen can display a myriad of information depending on the usage. It can be used for decorative purposes as well as stage lighting. Hence, it is useful in situations like showing sports scores, promotions, and advertisements.

Digital Signage

The screen can be used in places like hotels, restaurants, airports, retail stores, public transportation, etc, as a modified method of grabbing attention and passing information.


The production of these screens does not stop at TVs and billboards. Slowly but surely, daily wearables are being manufactured using this technology.

Mobile Phones

Believe it or not, there is such a thing as a rollable phone and tablet. Manufacturers are getting bored of the traditional smartphone shape and are keen on finding otherwise ways to make the smartphone experience exciting. First, the flip phones by Samsung are the rest, and now, they are experimenting with ways to produce flexible rollable smartphones. 

The interesting part about rollable phones is that they are the same shape and size as the average smartphone, but once you unroll, you’ll have a bigger screen. Though there are numbered samples of this technology in the market, it is still a work in progress.

Laptops and TVs

This mainly has to do with the production of roll-up computer monitors—an adjustable screen whose size can be changed. Similar to rollable smartphones, the size of the roll-up computer screen can be folded to and unfolded to the desired sizes during use 


This is a new in-vehicle technology. All thanks to the roll-up screen not requiring an excess protocol to function, this bendy display is perfect for in-vehicle display. It is not common in the automobile world yet, but manufacturers believe it will in a few years.

Challenges of Roll-Up LED Screen

Despite its popularity, versatility, and amazing characteristics, the LED roll-up screen has downsides. Let’s look into a few of them.


Roll-up screens are super expensive! The technology was released not too long ago, in 2019. However, although it is a few years old, the technology still costs a lot. This is because the materials used for manufacturing are of high quality. The price keeps going up with each advancement.

Future Trends and Adoption

The high price of these LED screens is the biggest challenge to their adoption. This might result in other individuals producing fake and low-quality screens. Of course, low-quality screens would be sold much cheaper and trend faster than the original.


As much as these screens are high-quality, their longevity may be affected due to constant rolling and unrolling. This may affect its display quality, too. Manufacturers must discover ways to maintain the longevity of the screens without compromising quality.


We can both agree that the perks of using this LED display screen supersede its challenges. Regarding advertising and commercial display, a roll-up screen is second to none. It is also perfect for personal use, especially because you can adjust your TV size. The future of this technology is promising. Manufacturers hope that in the future, roll-up screens will be able to be folded to as small as a pen.
