FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

LED video screens are big and mysterious so it could be overwhelming to decide which one fits
YOUR event best. Our team is dedicated to help you as much as we can, not only during the
event, but also during the selection. That is why we put together a list of most commonly asked
questions in the world of LED video screens.

Are these screens like “Jumbotrons”?

For starters, “Jumbotron” is a trademark brand name owned by Sony corporation, so while many people call our screens “jumbotrons”, legally and technically they can’t be called that because we don’t have Sony screens. That being said, our screens utilize very similar technology to the “jumbotron”. But ours are better… much better! 🙂

How much time does it take to set it up mobile LED screen?
If we focus first on our outdoor trailer screen, we are very proud of our roll up and raise design. Our mobile trailer screens can be effectively set up within 15min of on site arrival time. Some considerations to be aware of are physical placement (staging, studio, lighting, barricades) as well as power, feeding the screens, and content to be displayed. But other than that, park it, level it, place outriggers, apply power, and push a button… it’s that quick.

On the other hand, our modular screens are a little bit more involved. It first needs to be determined whether they are truss-hung or raised with our 20’ Eventer lifts. The modular screens set up can range anywhere from 45 min to 2 hours largely depending upon the size of the screen from 12ft wide to 20ft wide.

How much space does it take?
Our trailer screens are mobile LED trailer screens either 24’ or 27’ long including the tip of the tail. The trailer itself is 8.5’, stabilizer outriggers 4’ to each side. So, safely plan on a 17’ footprint.

Assuming we are using our Eventer lifts to ground lift the screen, the footprint from front to rear would be roughly 8’ deep with whatever the length of the screen you select- anywhere from 12’ to 20’.

Why should I choose an LED screen over the projection screen?
By its very nature, LED displays are much brighter when compared to projection. With projectors, light is produced in the box and thrown across space where it lands on the screen.

With LED displays, light is produced in the display itself and self-illumination provides better visual presentation and general image quality. Projectors typically required darkened environments because they are competing with ambient light which tends to wash out as the projector light is beamed through empty space.

That is why most conferences using projectors require dimly lit rooms in order to see the material. In contrast, projectors absolutely do not work outdoors during daylight.

Which one should I choose the mobile or modular LED screen?
To start, our mobile trailer Jumbovision screens are the brightest in the world at 8000 nits. They are designed to be weather proof and are much more solid ground foot print for the outdoor setting.

Their resolution is ideal for very large crowds. A key benefit is the simplicity of roll-up and raise for the quick set up and strike at your event.

In contrast, the modular screens offer greater flexibility in size, they can be built in, as well as their ability to be flown from roof or truss-hung support points. They tend to be a higher resolution and are ideal for smaller spaces and crowds. However, they don’t tend to be as bright as our outdoor Jumbovision mobile trailer screens.

How do I know what brightness is good for me?
If you ever pulled out your cell phone into direct sunlight, you will notice how difficult it is to see your screen. Display brightness is measured in “nits”, where the lower the number the dimmer the display, vs the higher the number the brighter the display – and ability to see in a sunlight. LSD screens that make up most computers and moderate TVs, tend to range between 200-500 nits. Hence, why even flat screen being placed into direct sunlight is hard to read.
In contrast, modular LED screens tend to range between 1500 to 5000 nits depending upon the rating, and whether it is indoor or outdoor.

However, our Jumbovision Mobile LED screens are the brightest in the world at 8000 nits.

How do I know which resolution is right for me?
To begin with, LED display is a pixel pitch measured by the space in between the individual diodes, essentially each individual diode is a pixel. The smaller the number in millimeters, the close together are the diodes, and each diode is essentially a single pixel. Thus the higher the number in millimeters, the further apart each diode is.

General rule of thumb we go by is whatever the millimeter pitch is for the LED spread, would be the minimum viewing distance in meters. For example, if you have 4mm Jumbovision display, minimum viewing would be 4 meters, which is roughly 13 feet.

Conversely, our 10 millimeter Jumbovision LED screen would have a minimum 10meter viewing distance which is roughly 32 feet.
What happens optically, is the further you move away from LED screen, the gap between the individual diode lessens as your eyes see more solid image from further away. Thus, our 10mm Jumbovision screen would look very similar in image quality to our 3.9 mm screen when you are standing 100 feet away.
