1.What is a transparent screen?
LED transparent screen, as the name implies, is to make the LED display transparent like glass to optimize the prospective impact. Furthermore, the LED transparent screen provides a unique display effect. The audience is at a perfect distance, and the image appears to float on the glass curtain. The transparent screen is highly well-liked in the market because of its transparency, style, attractiveness, and thinness.
Architectural glass curtain walls and commercial shop windows are the two markets where transparent LED screens are most frequently used. We think that the future of LED screens will go on a new path toward transparent screens.

- Classified by the production process
1）Glass LED screen
The integrated lamp beads are attached to the transparent conductive glass to create the glass LED screen. High transparency, usually between 80% and 95%, characterizes this kind of screen.
2）Thin-film LED screen
The transparent conductive film or PCB board will be covered with a thin-film LED screen made up of lamp beads with built-in lamp drivers. This kind of screen is typically between 70% and 85% transparent and is simple to apply to already-existing glass surfaces.
3）LED mesh screen
The splicing LED screen module is composed of lamp beads, PC card strips, aluminum buckles, steel wires, and other components, which are easy to install and customize. These screens offer greater flexibility and adaptability but are typically 50% to 75% less clear than glass or film screens.

- Various control ways
Remote cluster control makes it easy to control single and multiple LED screens simultaneously. Can go offline without a computer.
But it’s important to remember that two requirements must be fulfilled for a remote control to work.
Condition 1: The LED display has a network connection and Internet access capability.
Condition 2: When you are online, you must log on to the website for remote content release beforehand.
Successful remote distribution of programming is only possible if the content is published from the website.
The LED display can be networked in one of 3 ways:
1)A 4G SIM card.
2)Wired network (use a router to link the network wire or optical fiber to the LED screen).
3)Connect to a network using WI-FI.
4.How to choose a suitable transparent LED screen?
1). If the brightness of the indoor environment is dark, the brightness of the transparent LED screen is recommended to be 1000-2000cd/㎡, and it is advisable to stay within this range.
2). Semi-outdoor shade environment with glass curtain walls, comprising sales departments, mall windows, and 4S stores for cars. To ensure the transparent LED screen’s regular display effect, the brightness setting should be between 2500 and 4000 cd/㎡.
3). Low-brightness transparent screens may result in fuzzy images in a bright outdoor setting because of their insufficient brightness. To fulfill the display effect of the transparent LED screen under intense sunlight, the brightness of the transparent screen should be set at 4500–5500cd/㎡.
The spacing between each LED on the screen is referred to as the “pixel pitch.” The smaller the pixel pitch, the higher the resolution, and a transparent LED panel typically has a pixel pitch of between 3mm and 20mm.
The higher the contrast, the better the image quality and the more vivid the colors. Transparent LED panels typically have a contrast ratio of 1000:1 to 5000:1.
A seamless blending of the screen and environment is achieved with greater transparency. Between 65% and 95% of LED screens are typically transparent.
- Installation Environment
Your decision will be influenced by whether it is installed inside or outside, and if fixed installation or hoisting is used. Typically, fixed installations cost less than ceiling installations.
Provide the transparent LED screen’s viewing distance, including whether it is for close-up or long-distance watching, as well as the type of effect needed for side viewing.

5.LED transparent screen display installation method
- Floor Standing Installation
The screen, which is frequently used in glass windows, exhibition halls, etc., is typically just fastened at the bottom and has a limited area and a low height. If the screen cabinet is tall, it must be fixed up and down at the back of the screen cabinet to complete the fixing of the screen body.
- Frame installation
The frame of the cabinet is immediately fixed to the keel of the glass curtain wall using the composite bolt. In the case of architectural glass curtain walls, only a modest quantity of steel construction is required.
- Hanging Installation
An appropriate installation location, such as a beam above, is required for this installation method. Steel wire ropes are used to lift the internal beams, and steel pipes painted the same shade as the screen cabinet adorn the exterior. Hanging is frequently disassembled and supplies (cabinets, flight boxes, etc.) need to be added since hanging is frequently utilized in the rental industry.
6.Is a transparent screen worth the investment?
