At Visual Led, we manufacture custom LED screens to fully adapt to you and your company. But to guarantee that the broadcast content can be perfectly visible, another variable comes into play here: the number of pixels and the separation between the audience and the screen. Before making your purchase, our experts will advise you on the most suitable characteristics. For example, for a 2 x 3 m screen, a 6 mm pixel should be chosen if the viewers are 7 m away (this is the minimum margin we recommend for a large format screen); 8 mm if placed at 6 m, 16 mm if located at 12 m, etc. Ask us about the most convenient pixel pitch for you.
Of course: we must not lose sight of the fact that the larger the screen, the more impact it will have. On the other hand, a small screen with large text will always attract more attention than a large one with a small font size.
