What’s the advantages of LED screen compared with the projectors?

  • Vivid color

Full color LED screen usually use red, green and blue lamp, the three basic color can make white and 6,777,216colors.

The projector can support 16,777,216 colors in ideal environment. Though the projector colors more than the LED display, but projectors will influenced more than LED screen by the environment.

We all have experience before when we use the projector at daytime, we need close the window or curtain to get better displaying effect.

When we use it at night, the window can be open. Why we do this ? This way is to make sure you can see the projector’s content clearly and can distinguish the colors.

The effect of drawing curtains during the day is good, but it is not good for the eyes.

For LED screen you don’t need worry about it. The LED screen plays the content you show at the computer through video processor, the high level video processor such as Novastar, the color more close to itself.

If you think the brightness is high, you can adjust it through software. Thus the LED screen color will not effected by light.

The LED display screen works very well whether the curtains are drawn or not, day or night.

  • No limited size

We all know when we use the projectors, the smaller displaying content, the more clearly pictures will be.

If you are playing at a remote place, the picture will be big at the same time the resolution will be lower.

The projector can project up to 300 inches. A projector with a throw ratio of 1.2:1 requires a projection distance of about 8 meters to project a 300-inch screen.

However, the current optimal projection size of a projector is 100-200 inches (2.54m-5.08m), so that it can fully display the bright picture advantage of the projector.

If you want the picture more than 10m, like 20m, 30m, or bigger? One normal projector hard achieve this, you need many projectors to make one whole picture at the same time keep the resolution good.

The greater the projection distance, the less high-definition the picture will be.

For LED display you don’t need worry about the size because it can be as large as you think.

The LED screen size can be smaller like 2x1m, 3x2m, 1.92×1.28m while keep the high resolution at the same time.

It can also be large like 40x30m, 50x20m, 60x30m or bigger. This is projectors can’t do with 1 time.

The viewing distance of the LED display screen has basically changed, but the clarity of the picture remains unchanged.

  • Longer lifespan

The lifespan of a projector is generally 5-10 years. Most projectors end their lifespan due to the aging of the internal circuit boards.

The most common problems with projectors are the lens and the bulb. Projectors that use bulbs as light sources generally have a lifespan of 2-10 years.

The light bulb needs to be replaced every 3 years, and the life of the light bulb will be relatively short. In this way if you are not professional on the projector, when the bulb is broken you can’t change it.

For that users the projectors lifespan is only 2 or 3years only. If the projector have problem, you need send it back to the factory and wait them repair it.

If the projector is over the warranty, the process will more difficult and you need buy a new one rather than repairing it.

LED screen lifespan is longer than this. We all know technically the LED screen lifespan is 100,000hours, that about 10 years. Also the data is main refers to the LED lamp.

If the LED lamp gets broken or you can feel the color fading, then you can replace the old LED module with a new one and make it new.

No matter indoor or outdoor type, LEGIDATECH LED screen can work more than 8-10years, even longer.

Because we choose the high quality LED screen material when production and prepare the same batch spare parts before shipping goods to customers, we also provide maintenance guidance about how to make the LED display with longer lifespan.

You can also replace the broken part by yourself. In this way, you don’t need buy other extra spare parts , this is also cost much money.

Based on your own experience, LED screen and projector, which one will cost more? A projector may cost you around 100 USD , 200 USD or 1000 USD per one.

For end user its affordable. But as a retailer, you need sell many sets to make the relative profit. At the same time, you need bear the after sales service cost too.

If meet the problem you can’t solve, you need send the projector back to factory, the shipping is also a cost. And the money back time will be little longer.
