When you walk on the street, you can almost see the LED advertising screen as soon as you look up. In the field of modern advertising, LED advertising screens have become a bright star. They quickly won the favor of advertisers and businesses with their excellent visual effects and advertising flexibility.
As an advertiser, purchasing an LED display is one of the steps you must take. Do you know how to buy an LED display screen? Do you know how much an LED advertising screen costs? This article will take you through how much it costs to buy an LED advertising screen; let’s take a look.
1. Check the good aspects before buying an LED advertising screen
When you decide to purchase an LED advertising screen, you need to check and measure the following points in advance to ensure you purchase a suitable LED advertising screen.
- Clarify your needs: First, determine the purpose of your advertising screen and the environment in which it will be used. Is it indoor or outdoor? For advertising, messaging, or entertainment?
Measure the installation space: Measure and determine the size of the space where you plan to install the LED advertising screen. Know the length, width, and height of the location where you want to install the LED advertising screen to ensure the appropriate size and proportion.
Budget planning: Develop a reasonable budget, taking into account the price of the LED advertising screen itself and subsequent maintenance and operation costs.
Market research: Understand the products, technologies, after-sales services, etc., of different LED display suppliers to choose the appropriate LED advertising screen supplier.
Power and structural requirements: Because the power supply and installation structure of the LED advertising screen are taken into consideration, it is ensured that the power supply and fixation requirements can be met.
Regulations and Permits: Check local regulations to make sure your installation won’t violate any regulations. A permit may be required.
2. What factors affect the price of LED advertising screens?
When you are looking for LED display suppliers, you will find that almost every supplier offers different prices. This is because the material quality, specifications, durability, and other aspects used by each LED display supplier will vary.
So, you need to understand the price differences that affect LED advertising screens to help you choose better products.
Some factors are listed below for you, and please read them carefully.
- The size of the dot spacing:
The dot pitch refers to the distance between the lamp beads on the LED advertising screen. For an LED display of the same size, the larger the dot spacing, the larger the spacing between the lamp beads, which means the clarity will be smaller, and the corresponding price will be lower.
On the contrary, the smaller the dot spacing means the smaller the spacing between the lamp beads, the greater the clarity, and the corresponding price will be higher.
Common indoor spacings include P2.5, P3.33, P4, etc. Common outdoor spacings include P6, P8, P10, etc. These are more popular choices.
- Brightness and Contrast:
The brightness and contrast of the LED advertising screen determine its visibility and visual effects under different ambient lights.
This is related to whether your LED advertising screen is used indoors or outdoors. Generally, the brightness of indoor LED advertising screens is 600~900cd/㎡, and the brightness of outdoor LED advertising screens is above 6000cd/㎡. If you need to add brightness, it will cost extra.
The LED advertising screen is a customized product that can be spliced into any size you want using the splicing module method. Of course, the larger the size, the higher the price, and the smaller the size, the lower the price.
A higher refresh rate can ensure the smoothness of videos and dynamic images and avoid screen flickering and image retention. The higher the refresh rate, the higher the price. Suppose your LED advertising screen is installed in a place with a large flow of people and needs to play videos.
Then, I recommend you buy 3840P with a high refresh rate. Especially 3D LED advertising screens and large-size LED advertising screens.
- LED lamp bead quality:
The quality of the lamp beads directly determines the playback effect, brightness, lifespan, etc., of the LED advertising screen. I prefer using LED lamp beads from Nationstar and Kinglight, as the effect is better.
- Durability and protection levels:
This depends on where your LED advertising screen is installed. If your LED advertising screen is installed indoors, then it only needs to be durable enough.
If your LED advertising screen is to be installed outdoors, then it must be prepared to withstand various weather conditions, such as rain and lightning; it must be waterproof and bright enough to see still images and videos in direct sunlight. A higher level of protection is necessary to protect yourself from extreme weather.
The power supply is like a starter for the LED advertising screen. It directly determines the stability and safety of the LED advertising screen. A good power supply can avoid many things, such as electric shock, black screen problems, and even fire accidents caused by electricity.
Of course, a good power supply must be more expensive in terms of price. Our more commonly used power supply brands include MEAN WELL and Chuanglian.
3. What should you pay attention to when purchasing LED advertising screens?
In addition to the LED advertising screen itself, there are also some possible expenses that you need to pay attention to. For example:
Shipping costs: Shipping costs vary by region. This depends on the distance between the delivery and delivery addresses and the shipping method you choose.
Taxes: Each country has different customs duties, and you must pay the local amount.
Installation costs: The installation of LED advertising screens requires a professional team, including the installation and wiring of brackets, cables, power supplies, and other connecting equipment, which requires additional costs.
Maintenance and upkeep: Regular maintenance and upkeep of LED advertising screens, including cleaning, lamp bead replacement, fault repair, etc.
LED advertising screen is a product that needs to be customized. Factors affecting LED advertising screens include resolution, brightness, size, durability, and environmental conditions.
