LED Display Color Tone Adjustment Methods And Techniques


In today’s era of digitalization and informationization, LED display screens have become an indispensable and important tool in the fields of information dissemination, advertising display, culture, and entertainment. Its high brightness, high definition, long life, and other characteristics enable it to perform well in various situations.

However, as the color tone of the LED display screen is a key factor that directly affects the audience’s visual experience, its adjustment and optimization are particularly important.

1. Basic knowledge of LED display color hue

The basic knowledge of LED display color tone covers many aspects. The following are detailed answers to your questions:

1). Color Basics: Hue, Value and Saturation

  • Hue:

Hue is the primary characteristic of color and the most accurate standard for distinguishing various colors. In fact, any color other than black, white, and gray has the attribute of hue, and hue is composed of primary colors, secondary colors, and complex colors. The hue circle is the most intuitive manifestation of hue, which can clearly reflect the relationship and changes between colors.

  • Value: 

Value refers to the brightness of a color. Various colored objects produce light and dark colors due to differences in the amount of light they reflect. There are two situations of color brightness: one is the same hue but different brightness; the other is the different brightness of various colors.

  • Saturation:

 Saturation refers to the vividness of a color, also known as the purity of the color. Saturation depends on the ratio of chromatic and achromatic components (grey) in the color. The greater the color component, the greater the saturation; the greater the achromatic component, the smaller the saturation.

2). LED display color generation principle

  • RGB color mode: 

RGB color mode is a color standard in the industry. It obtains various colors by changing the three color channels of red (Red), green (Green), and blue (Blue) and superposing them on each other. Various colors. RGB represents the colors of the three channels: red, green, and blue. This standard includes almost all colors that human vision can perceive and is one of the most widely used color systems.

  • Color depth and resolution:

 Color depth refers to the number of colors the display can display, usually expressed in bits. The higher the color depth, the richer the displayed colors and the more delicate the picture. Resolution refers to the number of pixels on the display, usually expressed in terms of the number of horizontal pixels and the number of vertical pixels. The higher the resolution, the clearer the display.

3). The importance of color tone adjustment

  • Improve the visual experience: 

By adjusting the color tone of the LED display, you can make it more in line with the visual habits of the human eye, thereby improving the viewing experience. For example, when displaying pictures of natural scenery, appropriately increasing the saturation of green and blue can make the picture more fresh and natural.

When displaying pictures of products, adjusting the hue and brightness can highlight the characteristics of the product and attract the audience’s attention.

  • Ensure the accuracy of information transmission: 

When displaying information on an LED display, accurate color tones can ensure the accurate transmission of information. For example, when displaying traffic signs, red stop signs and green passing signs have clear color regulations. If the colors are inaccurate, it may lead to misunderstandings and safety hazards. Therefore, by adjusting the color hue of the LED display, the accuracy and reliability of the information can be ensured.
