Dome LED display may still be a relatively unfamiliar thing to many people. In order to better let you know how Singapore Esplanade uses the dome LED display project to enhance the audience’s viewing experience, this article will introduce you in detail the system composition of the dome LED DISPLAY, the functions of the dome LED display project, the dome LED display features and some advantages that other similar projects do not have.

System composition of Dome LED display project

1. Flexible led display customized module

Generally, dome LED display requires dozens or even hundreds of non-rectangular flexible LED modules of different sizes. Flexible non-rectangular LED modules can form a seamless LED dome without seams and faceted angles. Each LED module is installed on the structure by a magnet hidden in the rubber on the back, which greatly reduces the difficulty of installation and maintenance.

2. High-definition LED display screen

GalaxyAV provides ultra-high-definition LED dome solutions, which can achieve a maximum resolution of 21K on a 20m diameter dome, the dots on the dome arc is 20933. It provides the ultimate high-resolution display solution for astronomical research and high-end dome solutions

3. Integrated content output control system

Different from ordinary LED displays, in order to perfectly realize the LED dome playback function, it is first necessary to edit and process the non-dome content screen and project it onto the LED dome according to the resolution and shape of the dome. The precise image processing of pixel to pixel must be considered in the processing process, otherwise there will be problems of screen tearing or loss of details.

4. Lightweight installation structure system

GalaxyAV team provides LED dome system solutions including structure. The structure contains an LED frame for flexible LED panels attaching and the main structure for the entire dome support. Generally, Galaxyav provides initial design and modification advice for the main structure section, as different regions have strict design and construction regulations for large structures.

Features of the Dome LED display project

1. Immersive audio-visual experience

LED Dome display brings an unprecedented immersive experience. Whether it is a seamless spliced picture with ultra-high contrast or multi-dimensional surround sound, the LED dome screen is far superior to the projection dome screen.

2. Content interaction can be customized

Compared with the traditional projection dome, which requires multiple media servers, the entire LED dome may only need one media server to complete all operations, even including multi-bit stereo surround sound processing, which provides unlimited opportunities for interactive and highly customized content. possible.

3. Undifferentiated visual effects (regardless of viewing position)

No matter where you are in the content of the LED dome, you can experience the immersive environment indiscriminately. The LED dome itself has the advantages of ultra-high contrast, seamless splicing and consistent picture effects, and the difference and projection are limited by the installation position and angle , the LED spherical screen can cover a range of 210° beyond the limit of the human eye, and even realize the concept of a 720° complete spherical screen, allowing participants to be completely in the world created by the designer. imagination.

Features of Dome LED display

1. Small pitch pixels

The resolution of all LED displays depends on the size of the LED dot pitch, and the LED dome screen is no exception. The smaller the dot pitch, the more pixels per unit area, and the clearer the display. After years of experimental verification and accumulation of experience, GalaxyAV has been able to achieve a minimum 1.5mm dot pitch LED dome solution and solved the challenge of sound transmission. This not only realizes the requirement of the ultra-large screen and ultra-high resolution but also brings possibilities for immersive LED application solutions in small spaces. For example, the dark knight based on projection solutions in the past no longer has to worry about the problems of projection images, viewing angles, and Resolution issues create a bad experience for visitors.

2. Large screen size

In theory, based on flexible customized LED modules, we can realize a large screen with unlimited size and any angle bending, so that we can complete the full scene coverage of 360°+360° of human viewing angle, without worrying about the drama caused by insufficient screen coverage. experience. This is very important for a fully immersive experience, determining whether the facility is attractive enough and can bring visitors a more enjoyable experience, thereby affecting the final market benefit.

3. High sound transmittance

As we all know, the importance of sound in the scene depth experience is very high, and good scene sound can greatly improve the senses of the audience’s immersive experience. The dome screen designed by GalaxyAV has the characteristics of high sound transmission rate, which is completely comparable to the sound transmission parameters of traditional microporous aluminum plates. In particular, the 360° sound-transmitting LED dome of up to 95% of the whole scene provides unlimited possibilities for sound designers. Whether you want to achieve a Dolby full-scene immersive sound field, or customize a multi-bit stereo field, the GalaxyAV LED dome is the perfect solution. perfectly compatible.

4. High screen brightness

The LED dome itself has many advantages of the LED display, one of which is the brightness. Only consider the indoor LED display, the general brightness can reach 1200nits, but for the dome scene, in order to improve the immersive experience, the external light sources including lighting and outdoor light are generally excluded to reduce external interference, so the LED dome only needs A very low brightness is sufficient, a generally accepted setting is 300~500nits. This is a very obvious advantage, not only easily exceeds the brightness value of the projection dome, but also has a longer service life because the usage load rate is much lower than the default value.

5. Super high contrast ratio

The LED display is a self-emitting light direct view display. The contrast ratio of the conventional LED display is as high as 5000:1, but for the LED dome screen, this contrast may not be enough for the audience to completely ignore the existence of the display itself. The GalaxyAV adopts two The improved surface of the dome screen has a higher blackness: 1. Using black matte LED lamp beads; 2. Using a special treatment process to improve the surface consistency of the LED module, making it darker and reducing the reflectivity by more than 50% . Therefore, it truly solves the surface physical problem of the LED display screen in the field of spherical screen display, which not only weakens the fact that the audience has the physical existence of the display screen, but also improves the experience of the scene with infinite depth of field.
