4. How do you know which of the three installation methods to choose for your LED display?

When choosing an LED display installation method, the three factors of budget, visual effects, and maintenance and management need to be carefully considered to ensure that the final choice can meet your actual needs.

  • Budget:

  • Visual effect:

The visual effect is another important factor in the choice of installation method for LED displays. Different installation methods will have different visual effects on the display. Suspension installation can place the display screen in the air to form a suspended visual effect, attracting the attention of passers-by.

  • Maintenance and management:

Maintenance and management are long-term factors that need to be considered when choosing an LED display installation method.
