What should be considered when choosing a stadium LED screen?
There are many aspects to consider when choosing a stadium-led screen. These can be:
- Energy efficiency and luminosité comparison
The brightness requirements of outdoor sports display screens are higher than those indoors, but the larger the brightness value, the more suitable it is. For LED screens, brightness, contrast, and energy-saving effects need to be considered comprehensively.
The installation location determines the installation method of the LED display. When installing screens in sports venues, it is necessary to consider whether the screen needs to be floored, hung on the wall, or embedded in the wall, and the difficulty of installation and maintenance.
- Viewing distance and angle
As a large outdoor stadium, it is necessary to consider users who watch in the middle and long distances.

The viewing distance of indoor viewers is closer, and it is more appropriate to choose P4 and P5 for the dot pitch.
