Are LED Screens The Next Step in Digital Display Technology?

The benefits of LED screens are numerous, and the future looks even brighter. Read on to find more about LED display technology!

With more than 50 since the first product launches, the potential of LEDs was immediately recognized by customers. 

Small, bright, and durable, Light Emitting Diodes have evolved significantly since they were first discovered.

LED installations are used in many areas. Not only because they consume less energy, but also because of their high resolution. From television broadcasting and sports venues to glowing beacons in the big cities, a LED screen is known for having an immense impact on people.

In this article, we will go through the main benefits of LED displays, why they are so popular and how they will improve our lives. Stay tuned!

What are The Main Benefits of Using a LED Screen?

1. High Resolution

To measure the resolution of a display, LED display technology uses pixel pitch – the distance between one pixel and the next beside, above, and below. When the pixel pitch is small, the spacing is compressed, resulting in a higher resolution.

LED screens have the ability to display words, images, animations, clips, and other types of messages at a great quality. The standard ones are 4K, but 8K displays are also possible.

2. Brightness

Their power to project eye-catching images viewed at wide angles makes them indispensable. Coming a long way, today, these diodes are able to emit a clear and bright light seen in millions of colors. There are no other displays with greater brightness. They have the strength to compete with sunlight, which makes them perfect for the outdoors.


Made for any type of environment and climate, the reliability LED displays offer cannot be compared with many other technologies.  They are manufactured to withstand temperature swings, humidity, and salted air, making them perfect for outdoor or indoor placement. In addition, their quality is recognized throughout the world – many businesses choose to send their message through a digital billboard.

Why Are LED Screens so Popular?

The opportunities using a LED screen are offering, and keep growing daily. If you haven’t taken into consideration showcasing your brand with the help of big screens, now is the time. Why?

  • They are a prime candidate for different settings: broadcast, retail, sports events, etc.
  • Can be programmed: it doesn’t matter where you are, all you need is an internet connection.
  • Less time and resources consumed: this way you can avoid the high costs of traditional signage.
  • Less energy consumption: with a LED video wall, your company can save money on electricity.
  • Higher brand awareness: big-moving images help the customer retain the advertising memory.
  • Environmentally-friendly: because of its reduced energy consumption.
  • They last longer: if we compare them with fluorescent or neon tubes, their durability is longer.
  • Low maintenance: digital bill are highly resistant to damage, and they require less maintenance.
  • Increased ROI for your company: compared to traditional billboards, digital advertising showcased on big screens can be created on a computer and uploaded directly to the software.
  • Unique market position: innovation makes your brand more trustworthy and relevant.

These are only a few of the advantages in which a video wall can improve your marketing strategy. When they are correctly used, big screens can benefit almost any type of business. The only thing you need is the right amount of creativity and value, able to increase the customer’s awareness.

How LED Display Technology is Improving Our Future

The evolution of LEDs had an increasingly rapid pace in the later years. These screens are available in different shapes and sizes, offering solutions for different needs. Furthermore, they will employ Artificial Intelligence, expanded interactivity, and deliver self-service. Pixel pitch continues to increase, letting us create a larger screen without losing their qualitative resolution.

The Next Step in LED Displays: Mini-LED Vs. MicroLED

Since 2008 when OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diodes) debuted, Mini-LED and MicroLED are the biggest and most innovative developments of LED displays. Let’s see what is the difference between them.

On the one hand, a Mini-LEDs system is considered a better-LED display than traditional LEDs. Even if both use a backlight as the source of the brightness, Mini-LEDs are smaller, which means the contrast is better because of their almost similar size to the pixels. Used for TVs, smaller diodes achieve a better level of black, which is what most people look for when buying a television.

On the other hand, MicroLEDs do not have backlights integrated, but they are also shrunk. They are a multifaceted improvement of producing images on a screen, able to give total blackness. Their capacity to render detail is very high, but they also require more power and/or greater diode efficiency. This means that more heat is consumed, their battery drain is greater and the manufacturing is much more complex.
