Install control software: Install LED studio or other control software dedicated to playing and setting up large LED screens.

3). Configure control parameters

Set display parameters: Make necessary display settings on the computer host, such as resolution and screen expansion options.

Set control parameters: According to the control software of the LED display, set the control parameters to synchronize them with the LED display.

4). Test connection

Test the hardware connection: Make sure the computer host and LED display are both turned on and check whether the connection is firm.

Test the display effect: Test the display effect on the computer host. After confirmation, the LED display should be able to display normally.

Asynchronous LED display connection steps:

1). Preparation

You need to make sure that you have installed the LED display driver correctly and that the connection between your computer and the LED display is stable.

Download and install the LED display driver provided by the supplier

Complete registration and login, connect your LED device

Set what you need to play, as well as the play order, time, etc.

2). Connect the control card

LED displays usually require a control card to manage the content stored in the display memory and control the brightness and color of the LED lights. The control card is usually connected to a computer so that the user can easily update the display.

3). Connect the power and signal cables

Connect the power cable and signal cable of the LED display to the corresponding interface. Make sure the connection is solid and reliable, and avoid lines that are too long or too short to avoid affecting signal transmission and power supply.

4). Install the screen module

Install the screen module of the LED display screen according to the predetermined shape and layout. Typically, screen modules are connected using connectors to ensure a secure connection.

5). Debugging and testing

After completing the installation, conduct debugging and testing to ensure that the LED display screen displays normally. Debugging includes adjusting brightness, color, contrast, and other parameters, as well as checking the splicing effect between screen modules.
