How to choose Pixel Pitch for Outdoor LED Sign

Pixel pitch, Size and view distance of outdoor LED screen

Choosing the right Pixel Pitch for your LED Display should be the first step when deciding on a new digital display. This is to ensure your customers have the best viewing experience based on your screen and viewing distance, for your Outdoor LED Sign. Current Led Modules come in P2, P4, P5, P6, P8, P10, P12, P16 and P20 models. Blink Media stock a full range of led screens and a range of brands to your requirements.

1.  Viewing Distance

LED Display Pixel, also referred to as “PH” or “P” is the length between two pixels within the Digital Signage Display. Another terminology for Pixel Pitch but not used in the digital signage industry is screen resolution. For example, the P5 module has a pixel pitch that is 5mm apart and contains 40,000 pixels per square meter. The smaller the “P” value, the higher the pixel density and the closer the screen can be viewed.

Therefore, if you will be placing your Digital Sign at close proximity then you should select a high pixel pitch module such as P2, P4, P5, P6. Alternatively, you can take a low pixel pitch model such as P10, P16 or P20 for larger Led Sign’s that will be viewed further away. The medium pixel pitch is a P10 module and is also the most common module in digital displays. It’s also important to remember the higher the Pixel Pitch the higher power consumption with the increase in pixels.

2. LED Sign Size

Blink Media recommend screen sizes of less than 10 square meters to go with P2, P4, P5, P6 HD outdoor LED display modules. While screen sizes between 10-20 square meters we recommend to use P8 or P10 full-colour LED display modules.

Sizes of up to 20-100 square meters and viewing distance of 10 meters away, we recommend using P10, P12, P16 or P20 Led display modules.

Through the above analysis, the viewing distance and screen size area are linked. As the viewing distance increases the screen area will also need to be increased to support the display resolution requirements. So when selecting a pixel pitch for your led screen, ensure you have a small pixel pitch display even if the cost will be much greater, it is worthwhile to gain the maximum viewing and advertising opportunity for your patrons.

The choice of outdoor LED display Pixel Pitch is according to your requirements, combined with comprehensive consideration of screen size, housing types and budget. The following matrix combines the most suitable and common screen configurations.
