LED video walls are only becoming more ubiquitous as display technology becomes more affordable. Large format displays as large as 98 inches are no longer out of reach for corporate, education, government and house of worship use cases.

The Time Has Come
Do you think direct view LED isn’t quite ready to replace indoor presentation displays? Think again as you read this stunning brief on a recent Planar install for Edwards Lifesciences in Irving, CA: https://www.planar.com/case-studies/project/edwards-lifesciences/
Pixel Pitch Explained
Pixel pitch is what determines how close a viewer can be to see a continuous image without seeing the individual pixels. Think about the scoreboard at a sports stadium – they look great from almost anywhere in the stadium, but have you ever stood right in front of one?
A good rule of thumb is to multiply the pixel pitch (in mm) by 10 to get the nearest distance you can be and not discern the pixels. For Example: a 1.2 pixel pitch x 10 is 12′. In this case, the ‘first set of eyes’ shouldn’t be any closer than 12’ to guarantee a good viewing experience.
