First, you’ll need to appeal to the visual nature of your audience. Visual stimulation is no longer an option for modern-day events, it’s a necessity. There are many factors that come to mind when selecting the proper production equipment for your next event. To help you choose the proper LED panels, we put together some things you need to consider:
1. Venue and Audience
The rule of thumb for optimal viewing is the yard-to-millimeter ratio. Optimal viewing is one yard for a millimeter, per each millimeter of pixel pitch. For example, the best place to view a 5mm wall is from 5 yards away. Smaller pixel pitches offer intimacy for a small venue, while large venues will require a large pixel pitch.
Fonts are read more clearly on a smaller pixel pitch; lights, colors, and shapes can be done on a large pixel pitch.
LED outdoor stage designs may have to compensate for wind and rain.
Do you need your LED panels to do many things, or are they for a single use? For more diverse tiles, look for the optimal combination of IP rating and pixel pitch.
You need to ensure your software is compatible with the tiles you want to use.
Think about repairs and replacing. Can you fix the tiles from the back, or do you need to use the front?
Make sure your tiles are U.S. and E.U. safety approved by the ETL.
If an issue arises, is your team certified to service the tiles you selected?
How long will it take to set up and tear down? How heavy are the tiles, and do you need flying or ground support? We recommend setting up your LED panels a few days prior to the event to see what changes need to be corrected.
10. Should You Rent or Buy?
Finally, you will want to decide whether to purchase or rent. A good place to start is to consider the length of time you will need your LED display. If you only need it for a month, renting would be your best option. If the LED is staying put for a long time, it may be in your best interest to buy.
