In today’s life, LED display screens have been well known and accepted by the public; They are commonly used for advertising and important information promotion. As a leading type of LED display screen in the LED display screen market, outdoor LED display screens are highly popular and interesting to many people. Today, we will take you to a detailed understanding of outdoor LED display screens.

1. What is an outdoor LED display screen

  • It is a type of LED display screen, with the most obvious feature installed outdoors.

  • It is currently the emerging and most popular digital media for outdoor buildings and an important medium for advertising, information, and other related activities.

  • It is an advertising method that keeps up with the times and can be broadcasted outdoors without the small TV screen.

  • It is a subtle way of communication; by playing something in a loop, you can leave a deep impression and become a product user.

2. What constitutes an outdoor LED display screen

Although the LED display screen is a large object after splicing, its main structure is simple. Below, we will mainly talk about the main structure of outdoor LED display screens.

  • Power supply: This is the main controller, switch, and power converter of the power supply. The input is composed of 220V and 110V, and the output is 5V because LED display screens are high-precision devices that require variable voltage; In addition, there are also options for power cords, generally available in 220v and 110v, for different countries to choose from. As different countries have different national voltages, before choosing a power cord, you need to understand the voltage in the country where the LED display screen is installed.

  • Control system: This is one of the most important parts of the LED display screen. Although it is a small board, it has an IC chip that controls the screen, and the playback content of the screen is managed entirely by it.

  • Connection cable: It can be divided into several types, such as network cable specifically connected to the network, data cable specifically connected to data, and transmission line between control card and computer.

3. What are the characteristics of outdoor LED display screens

As a major type of LED display screen, what are its characteristics? Let’s take a look together.

  • Point spacing is large: the point spacing of outdoor LED displays is usually relatively large, for example, P7, P8, P10, etc., because the viewing distance of outdoor LED displays and the viewer from the screen are relatively far, so the larger the dot spacing, the better to ensure that the viewer can see the screen clearly.

  • Cost savings: Due to the large dot spacing of outdoor LEDs, fewer lamp beads are used, resulting in lower prices. For example, P8 has 15625 lamp beads per square meter, while P10 only has 10000 per square meter, so the price of P10 will be lower than P8.

  • Screen brightness can be automatically adjusted: Display screens installed outdoors are generally affected by natural light, which can be troublesome to adjust manually. Therefore, outdoor LED displays are equipped with automatic adjustment functions. For example, if the sun is very bright in summer, the brightness of outdoor LED displays needs to be adjusted to be clear. However, if it is cloudy, the brightness of outdoor LED displays can be lower.

  • Good protection performance: The outdoor weather is unpredictable, and it may be sunny in the morning and rainy in the afternoon. Therefore, the protection performance of outdoor LED displays is very high, not only for wind and static protection but also for natural disasters such as rain, sun, and lightning protection.

  • High brightness: Due to direct outdoor sunlight, the brightness of outdoor LED displays is generally high, and the brightness can reach over 10000cd at 5500cd.

4. Application of Outdoor LED Display Screen

With the development of the times, the application of outdoor LED displays is increasing, and representative ones include the following:

  • Stadium: It is believed that when watching football matches, everyone will see LED stadium screens surrounding the perimeter of the stadium and outdoor LED display screens standing on the stadium. They are usually used by organizers to play some advertising images, a slow-motion replay of matches, or a real-time broadcast of matches.

  • City Square: Every city has some buildings with LED display screens installed on their facades. This type of LED display screen is generally used for advertising and broadcasting, especially the outdoor LED display screens in city squares are particularly popular among advertising investors. Due to its advantages in traffic and LED display screens, it is more attractive than ordinary traditional advertisements.

  • Taxi Top: This is a special type of outdoor LED display screen installed on the top of the taxi. Taxis shuttle through the streets and alleys of the city every day, bringing a huge viewing volume, so this is also one of the places where advertisers love to place advertisements; Sometimes, city promotional videos are also played to enhance residents’ happiness.

  • Disadvantages

1). The resolution is not high: The definition of an LED display is determined by the resolution, but the point spacing determines the resolution; that is, if your LED display’s dot spacing is small, high definition, dot spacing is the large, low definition.

The dot spacing of outdoor LED display screens is generally relatively large, as their viewing distance is very far, generally over 10m. If the point spacing is too small, the content on the LED display screen cannot be clearly seen; The point spacing is large enough to see clearly; however, in reality, outdoor LED displays usually use large text and images, and low clarity has little impact.

6. What kind of content does the outdoor LED display screen support
