The Evolution & Future Of LED Video Display Technology

LEDs are Incredibly Versatile

Engineers have worked over the years to perfect the ability to place electronics outdoors. With the temperature swings seen in many climates, varying humidity levels, and salt air along the coasts, LED displays are being manufactured to withstand whatever Mother Nature throws at them. Today’s LED displays are reliable in indoor or outdoor environments, opening up many advertising and messaging opportunities.

The glare-free nature of LED screens make LED video screens a prime candidate for a variety of settings including broadcast, retail, and sporting events.

The Future

Digital LED displays have evolved tremendously over the years. Screens are becoming larger, thinner, and are available in a variety of shapes and sizes. Future LED displays will employ Artificial Intelligence, increased interactivity, and even self-service. In addition, pixel pitch will continue to increase, allowing the creation of very large screens that can be viewed up close with no loss in resolution.

Enhanced Resolution

The LED display industry uses pixel pitch as a standard measurement to indicate the resolution of a digital display. Pixel pitch is the distance from one pixel (LED cluster) to the next pixel beside it, above it, and below it. A smaller pixel pitch compresses the spacing, resulting in a higher resolution. The earliest LED displays used low-resolution light bulbs that could project words only. However, with the emergence of newer LED surface mounted technology, the ability to project not only words, but pictures, animations, video clips, and other messages is now possible. Today, 4K displays with a horizontal pixel count of 4,096 are quickly becoming the standard. 8K and beyond is possible, although certainly not as common.
