Four development trends of LED video walls

LED video wall is not a very novel product, we can often see them in some indoor or outdoor projects. The LED video wall usually uses multiple LED screen panels of uniform specifications for splicing to realize the large-size playback effect of images or videos. With the advancement of LED display panel technology, the viewing experience of LED video walls today is much better than that of 5 years ago.

When you stand in front of the LED video wall today, you will find that the LED video wall can present larger, brighter, and more refined colors and pictures. Although multiple LED display panels are used for splicing, the improvement of seamless LED screen splicing technology makes the audience invisible to the splicing traces of LED display panels. Such advanced LED display panel seamless splicing technology provides the audience with a deeper and more shocking visual experience.

In the “2022 Global LED Display Market Report”, Futuresource Consulting used a lot of detailed data and market research results to come to the conclusion that “the LED display industry is continuing to maintain its position in the large-size multimedia content placement and display market. The dominant position will drive the positioning of smaller pitch pixels in a wide range of applications in both outdoor and indoor environments in the future.”

Taking outdoor LEDs as an example, pixel pitches of 10 to 16 mm used to be the standard, but today we are seeing new applications driving the need for pixel pitches, with common LED screens with pitches as low as 3 mm. If it is a special usage scenario, such as the LED screen that provides a virtual background scene for movie shooting, the lamp bead spacing can even reach 0.6 mm.

So what will happen to the LED video wall in the future with the technological progress of LED screens? GalaxyAV, as an LED screen manufacturer engaged in LED screen design, production, and manufacturing for more than 20 years, has sorted out the future development trends of LED video walls in 4 aspects for you based on the laws of the market and technological changes over the years.

Trend 1: LED video wall will have stronger environmental adaptability

Harsh environmental conditions may adversely affect the normal use of outdoor LED video walls, resulting in deterioration of the image quality of the LED screen and the operating conditions of the entire system. Installing an outdoor LED screen with elements such as waterproofing, UV-resistant treatment, low wind-resistant mesh, abrasion-resistant masking, and dust-proof enclosures will help ensure that your device can perform well in harsh outdoor environments.

Protecting the LED screen from rain, snow, dust, wind, UV rays, and extreme temperature fluctuations means you can extend the lifespan of your LED video wall, maximizing a good viewing experience for your audience, and drastically reducing your LED video Maintenance and use costs of the wall.

Taking GalaxyAV’s outdoor municipal LED video wall project in Singapore as an example, we have adopted multiple protective measures to ensure that the LED screen can withstand high temperatures and humid weather outdoors, as well as play LED normally in the sand, dust, and salty air. High-definition picture display function of video wall.

Trend 2: LED video wall will have higher display brightness

When the LED video wall is used outdoors, direct sunlight is an important factor that affects its normal display of video content. Direct sunlight brings challenges to viewing outdoor display screens, and the brightness parameter configuration of traditional LED screens displayed indoors is far from satisfactory for outdoor use.

But with the continuous advancement of GalaxyAV technology, we have solved the problem that the LED screen panel is dark when working outdoors. Now even in direct sunlight, users can clearly see the content of the screen playing on the LED video wall.

With a small pitch of about 3mm, the brightness of GalaxyAV’s outdoor LED screen is at least 4,000 nits. Even in the summer sun exposure, our LED screen can still provide the audience with colorful, high-resolution, high-contrast video content. This results in an excellent viewing experience for viewers and is well-received by customers.

Trend 3: Quick and Easy Installation Using System Integration

Many LED video walls on the market today feature stackable cabinets for quick assembly and a quick locking system to support single-person installations. We’re also seeing more LED screen solutions offering swappable components and front-end access for quick service. These features not only reduce installation time and complexity, but allow end users to easily adapt to various designs and configurations, especially as their needs change.

The LED screen that can be quickly installed and transported provides unlimited possibilities for using LED video walls in large areas. Such a unified modular design saves a lot of costs for the LED screen in the manufacturing environment, which is ultimately reflected in the use of LED video walls at a lower cost. The large-scale use of LED video walls has prompted the integrated production of the LED screen industry, resulting in lower-cost operation of the overall industry.

Therefore, LED video wall, as a technology with faster and faster installation speed and more convenient maintenance, is gaining more and more customers’ favor. From GalaxyAV’s global orders, we found the growth rate of customers and the application of LED video wall. The scene becomes more and more.

Trend 4: Diversified application scenarios of LED video wall

Today, LED displays can be used in almost any application. From lightweight outdoor LED displays that can be hung to makeshift LED video walls that can be quickly installed and removed by one person, to durable LED screen floors that can support the weight of the car. Countless application scenarios never imagined before are gradually becoming possible.

Take GalaxyAV’s special product dome LED screen as an example, this dome LED screen application solution replaces the ordinary ceiling in the past. It has been widely used in various planetariums, cultural and art centers, churches, and cultural experience places. Let the audience experience the feeling of being there. 

In addition, we successfully built a virtual ocean world project for customers in Doha, Qatar using the LED video wall. Let the audience in the desert area feel the joy of the underwater environment and creatures in a very real way. The projects and applications of this multi-functional virtual experience made with LED video wall technology will be open to audiences in more cities in the future.
