What is an LED Screen?

An LED Screen is like a giant television or computer monitor. The screen itself is made from lots of little LEDs (light emitting diodes) placed close together. Each LED emits three colours - Red, Green and Blue - which together light up as needed to create a range of colours. From a distance you don’t notice the individual LEDs but just see a picture created by all the LEDs working and changing colour in sequence.

What is Pixel Pitch?

The pixel pitch is the distance between the centre of an LED (or group of LEDs that make up a pixel) and the next adjacent LED. The smaller this distance, the closer all the LEDs on the screen are together and the better the resolution – meaning a more detailed picture. So a lower pixel pitch number means a better resolution than a higher pixel pitch number.

What are Real, Actual and Virtual Pixel Pitches?

A virtual pixel pitch was a term associated with older LED screen technologies that shared LEDs to create virtual pixels. While this sounds impressive it didn’t really improve the picture greatly. A virtual pixel pitch is half the real or actual pixel pitch. So a virtual 10mm pixel pitch LED screen is actually a 20mm pixel pitch LED Screen.

What is the difference between an LED TV and LED Screens?

An LED TV (or LED backlit LCD) is a standard LCD monitor (like a flat screen LCD television or computer monitor) with LEDs positioned behind the LCD instead of a standard light source. It’s a little misleading so watch out!

Why use an LED Screen instead of an LCD Screen?

LED screens are a completely different technology to LCD screens, designed for a different purpose. LCD screens are designed primarily for indoor close viewing on a small scale. LED screens are designed for large scale, high impact projects that can be used outdoors in bright sunlight.
