LED display screens have gradually replaced LCD splicing screens and projectors in church applications due to their long service life, easy maintenance, low maintenance cost, bright display colors, wide viewing angle, no reflection, and diverse installation shape design.
Especially with the development and maturity of China’s LED display screen industry, the price and cost have been decreasing in recent years, making LED display screens affordable for more churches.
How to choose a suitable solution and product for an indoor LED screen for a church ?
LEGIDATECH will provide you with a detailed guide.
1: We start with the installation method to choose the indoor church LED display screen:
1.1: Screen need to be lifted or frequently disassembled
Installation from the ceiling
Installation on trusses
Diverse design stage installation
Then we should choose indoor stage rental LED screens available on the market It is composed of 500x500mm or 500x1000mm die cast aluminum LED panel body, which has high strength and is suitable for direct lifting.
In addition, die-casting aluminum LED panels are equipped with quick locks for easy and quick installation and disassembly, allowing for free transformation of different installation shapes.
These types of LED panels also have plug and play power and network cables, which is very convenient for end users like churches.
In terms of packaging, if it needs to be dismantled and repackaged for storage after the event, road case packaging can be chosen .
For example, LEGIDATECH’s R series products
1.2: Fixed installation of square shape indoor church LED display screen
This requires us to make a permanently fixed steel structure to fix the church LED display screen.
Here, there are two installation methods:
A: Wall mounted:
If the strength and load-bearing capacity of the church wall are not sufficient to leave maintenance channels for LED display screen maintenance personnel to enter, then when choosing LED display screens, we need to choose products that are lighter in weight and can be maintained in front of the LED display screen.
This is what we usually refer to as front maintenance indoor LED display screens.
For front maintenance LED display screens, either the entire LED tiles can be removed from the front, or LED modules, power supplies units, receiving cards, and other LED display screen components can be removed from the front of the display screen for maintenance and repair.
The front maintenance LED display screen, with its installation structure and LED display screen, has a relatively small thickness and looks more aesthetically pleasing.
If your church requires front maintenance LED display screens, emphasize when consulting with LED display screen suppliers that “I need front maintenance indoor LED display screen products.”
If the church wall meets the load-bearing requirements, can have maintenance channels , and the LED display screen for rear maintenance is also acceptable.
Usually, for LED display screen manufacturers, the manufacturing cost and price of the same style of LED display screen cabinets are relatively lower for rear maintenance LED displays compared to front maintenance LED displays.
In most cases, when churches purchase wall mounted indoor LED displays, they will choose front maintained indoor LED displays.
B: Floor standing installation:
Floor standing installation is usually commonly used for church stage backgrounds.
If it is not possible to install a fixed steel structure and you do not want to damage the stage floor or walls, you can choose to get an LED display screen with a die-casting aluminum panel , and purchase an easy to assemble installation back frame.
If a fixed installation steel structure can be used, then any style of indoor LED display screen is suitable.
1.3: Creative installation:
LED display screens for indoor creative installation require the church to provide its own design drawings and consult with the LED display screen manufacturer to discuss the feasibility of the design and whether it is possible to customize LED display screen solutions.
2: Choose a church indoor LED display screen with appropriate pixel pitch
As a professional LED display manufacturer, LEGIDATECH often encounters inquiries from church customers about LED displays.
Many church LED display screen buyers will ask if we have 4K, 2K LED displays or high-definition LED displays.
Buyers often ask questions in this way, either through non-professional explanations obtained through online searches or by judging LED displays based on their understanding of the television.
Actually, this is a buyer’s misunderstanding.
Firstly, what we understand is that LED display screens are solid pixels composed of individual light beads, which is different from LED televisions.
LED televisions are LED backlight sources, easy to have 4K or 2K .
A single LED display unit cannot achieve 4K or 2K resolution.
To achieve 2K or 4K resolution, it is necessary to choose appropriate pixel pitch and a sufficiently large installation size.
The reason why LED TVs require 2K or 4K is because the TV has a small area and a short viewing distance.
For the selection of pixel pitch on the display screen, we first need to determine the closest viewing distance to the audience.
Usually, with a 4mm pixel pitch, the optimal viewing distance for LED displays is 4 meters away.
If the human eye cannot see the LED beads on the display from 4 meters away, people will think that LED displays are high-definition.
Similarly, the optimal viewing distance for a 3mm pixel spacing is 3 meters away, and for a 2.5mm pixel spacing, it is 2.5 meters away.
Usually, indoor LED display screens purchased by churches have a pixel pitch of less than 4mm.
Depending on the different styles of LED display screen boxes provided by different LED display screen manufacturers, the pixel spacing is usually 4mm, 3mm, 2.5mm or 3.9mm, 2.9mm, 2.6mm.
LEGIDATECH, as the main production supplier of LED displays for churches, has recently developed an EHONOR series product specifically designed for churches with a very competitive cost.
Among them, P2.5 LED displays are very popular, and 90% of churches will choose this product. EHONOR2.5 can be suitable for church LED displays of any size, so don’t worry about choosing which pixel pitch.
The mission of LEGIDATECH’s development of this product is to make LED displays accessible to all churches.
3: Choose the appropriate size of church indoor LED display screen
In fact, LED display screens do not have a standard fixed size.
They can be assembled according to the manufacturer’s panel size, and the display screen size can be made as large as desired.
And when we choose the size, we need to do a few things.
3.1: Select the installation location.
The LED display screen is for the audience to see.
It is necessary to clarify which location to install it in and which audience to see.
3.2: By having people sit in the farthest seat to observe the installation position of the LED display screen, ensure that the size is large enough to provide a good viewing experience.
And then preliminarily measure the width and height of the LED display screen to be installed.
Provide this size to the LED display screen supplier to determine the final LED display screen size.
3.3: What kind of display aspect ratio is more suitable
In fact, there is no need to worry about the display aspect ratio, which must be 16:9, 4:3, or 2:1, because LED video processors can scale the video to fit the ratio of the LED display screen.
Of course, when choosing a display screen, it is usually recommended to make it rectangular, with a width larger than the height. It is not recommended to make a 1:1 ratio of a square
3.4: Creative LED display screens, which can be determined based on specific design and proportions with LED display screen suppliers to determine feasible sizes.
By mastering the above points, it is easy for buyers of indoor LED display screens in churches to choose the LED board that is suitable for their church . The projector brightness is low, and the LCD video splicing wall will reflect light when use camera to shoot. LED displays solve the defects of projector and LCD video wall very well, and these devices will be replaced by LED displays in the future. That’s why more and more churches are starting to use LED displays.
