The fine pixel pitch LED display can increase the image quality effectively, and shorten the viewing distance so as to facilitate the use in more applications such as indoors. It also has stable performances and high cost-efficiency, which helps to boost revenues and human traffic for you. But, do you really understand it? Here we will discuss this type of LED display screen with you thoroughly. Just follow us to be a small pixel pitch LED display expert!

1. What Is Fine Pixel LED Display?

1.1 What Is Pixel Pitch?

Basically, pixel pitch definition refers to how close pixels are to each other in millimeters, sometimes referred to as pitch or dot pitch. You can understand the pixel pitch is the distance in millimeters from the center of a pixel to the center of the adjacent pixel.

Fine pixel pitch LED display refers to LED screens with pixel pitches under P3 such as P2.976, P2.5, P2, P1.8, P1.5, etc. Fine pitch LED screens rely on the same kind of tech as normal LED displays but can show better content in a detailed and colorful way.

To further explain, because the more pixels you have on the screens, the better your digital signage contents like images and videos can be shown, and the closer viewing distance the viewers can have so that when they get up close to the LED displays, there will not be the bad boxy and rough-looking effect

1.2 How about Fine Pitch LED Display?

Fine pixel LED displays feature high resolution and high image quality, which have been widely used in many areas. For example, monitoring, exhibitions, shopping malls, household screens, education, and so forth. The greatly improved resolution benefits many customers who have specific requirements for a high-quality display effect.

To conclude:

(1) Pixel pitch means the density of pixels;

(2) The smaller the pixel pitch, the closer the viewing distance, and the higher the resolution;

(3) Fine pixel pitch means very close viewing distance and high resolution.

What Is A Good Pixel Pitch?

Typically, we describe LED display with pixel pitch under 3mm like P2.976, P2.5, P2, P1.8, P1.5 as fine-pitch LED display. And for outdoor LED display, LED screen under P6 is suitable for close viewing distance.

However, is the smaller pixel pitch always better than larger pixel pitch?

The answer is no. So, what is a good pixel pitch?

Here are three thumb rules for you to identify:

(1) Pixel Pitch x 10 = Approximate Viewing Distance in Feet.

(2) The Average Comfortable Viewing Distance

For example, when the pixel pitch is 1.25mm, the comfortable viewing distance will be 7ft 1in | 2.15m. When pixel pitch 1.5mm, the viewing distance should be 8ft 6in | 2.58m.

(3) Visual Acuity Distance

The calculation is: Pixel Pitch x 3438 = Visual Acuity in Millimeters. 

If you are not sure what is the good pixel pitch for you, just ask the sales staff, and they will make a proposal for you!

4. How to Choose Fine Pixel Pitch LED Screens?

(1) Components

The quality of materials and components has a direct impact on the final effect of the whole screen. For instance, chips, LED lamp beads, power supply, cabinet materials, PCB board, and so on.

(2) Splicing effect

To reach the perfect display effect, the splicing effect plays a decisive role. This is the indispensable factor that decides the final 4K and 8K LED screen performance.

(3) Grayscale

Low brightness but high grayscale is one of the basic factors when you choosing the fine pixel LED display. That is because this type of display is mainly used indoors, and the brightness will be lower than the outdoor screen to protect peoples’ eyes. Sometimes, the low brightness means degradation of grayscale, so just pay more attention to this point.

(4) Refresh rate

The refresh rate is one of the key points, too. The higher the refresh rate, the higher the brightness and color fidelity the screen can reach.

(5) Viewing distance

The closer the viewing distance, meaning the closer the distance between the display and people where they can still watch the normal pictures without distortion.

To calculate the appropriate viewing distance, there is a formula:

Pixel Pitch x 10 = Approximate Viewing Distance in Feet.

There is another point you should notice: if the viewing distance can be relatively long, the rule that smaller pixel pitch and high resolution is always better may not be correct as you should balance the budgets and pixel pitch. For example, if your customers will see your displays from 20m away, then P1.5 LED display may not be so cost-effective for you.

7. Fine-Pitch LED Display in Security Market

In 2023, the birth of ChatGPT caused a storm in the field of artificial intelligence, and the security industry deeply integrated with artificial intelligence was also brought to the forefront. with artificial intelligence recreated the high ground and the Internet of Things technology continued to climb, the security market is also facing new challenges.

After years of development, the security market has grown into a trillion-dollar market, and intelligent security has become the main theme. Its application scenarios involve public security, parks, buildings, finance, transportation, culture and education, health and other scenarios. 

The diversification of terminal display scenarios makes LED display widely used in its field. In the process of its popularization, various display technologies “compete for each other” in the field of security, but in the end only the fine-pitch display won the “favor”. Why is it? This has to start from the display demand of the security market.

What kind of display screen does the security market need?

The most common LED display in the security market is used in the fields of security monitoring and command and dispatch. The application of security monitoring in all walks of life has become more and more frequent and indispensable, and the video monitoring system is an important part of the security system. 

As a terminal for video information output, video monitoring terminal displaying equipment completely display all the monitored pictures clearly on the screen, and can also switch between large and small pictures flexibly, conveying accurate, real, intuitive, effective and rich content. As an important part of the security chain, the terminal display has a long-standing requirement for clarity.

The modern command and dispatch center is the hub of centralized data. The screen of the command center is considered to be the top application of the industry pyramid. The ability to display details on the screen directly affects the success or failure of the work of the command and dispatch center.

From this point of view, the security market’s demand for terminal display equipment focuses on high-definition.

From the past history, the display terminal of the security industry has experienced the CRT era, and then to the visual impact brought by LCD to the industry, and then the emergence of DLP and LED splicing technology, the market is constantly accepting new technologies and constantly eliminating outdated product. 

Until 2016, terminal display devices in the security market ushered in an iterative turning point. Before 2016, the LCD splicing wall almost monopolized the public security market, but in 2016, the price of fine-pitch LED screen products continued to decline, and some products have entered a level comparable to 3.5mm LCD in the price range, and the display effect is basically the same, which meets the demand of the security market; 

Compared with other displays, the fine-pitch LED splicing screen has a series of advantages such as high-definition, high brightness, high color saturation, low power consumption, and long service life, which makes it quickly favored in security monitoring.

high security led display

On the other hand, the demand for large-screen security displays is also changing. With the development of intelligent technology and the increase of intelligent applications, the value of the security system is changing from a simple “viewing screen” to an “information center”. This change has increased the gold content of large-screen security screens, and also enabled some customers to bear the “higher” construction costs of large-screen security screens. The latter is not good news for LCD splicing, which has long relied on price advantages to win.

On the whole, with the acceleration of the national informatization process, the large-scale construction of infrastructure, and the government’s high attention to the field of security monitoring, as a terminal display device for security monitoring, fine-pitch LED splicing screens have also gained unprecedented development opportunities. 

And with the decline of prices and the advancement of technology, fine-pitch display screens gradually occupy the large-screen security market, while LCD displays with slightly inferior display performance in the same price range gradually fade out of the security market.

Security visualization, application requirements promote display technology upgrades

The scale of the security display application market continues to expand. According to the research data of Luotu Technology, the scale of display equipment in China’s overall security market in 2021 will be 21.4 billion yuan, a year-on-year increase of 31%. Among them, monitoring and visualization large-screen equipment (LCD splicing screen, fine-pitch LED screen) has the largest market size, accounting for 49%. 

It can be seen that the terminal display demand in the security market has been growing at a high level, which has also injected impetus into the display technology upgrade of LED displays. 

Fine-pitch display screens are favored by security terminal displays, and their growing demand has also accelerated the upgrading of LED display technology. Ultra-high-definition technologies such as 4K/8K and COB encapsulation are also gradually being applied to LED display products.

Achieve ultra-high-definition picture quality 4K/8K

Under the background of ultra-high-definition display era, security terminal display is the starting point of ultra-high-definition video technology. With the acceleration of smart city management and the development of the ultra-high-definition era, the security market has higher requirements for high-definition displays in monitoring, command and dispatch. 

For ultra-high-definition fine-pitch LED displays, the smaller the dot pitch, the easier it is to meet the display requirements of 4K and 8K full high-definition resolution for display terminals in the market. Enjoy more comfort. As a result, Mini/Micro LED technology has also entered the security display.

analyzing from the performance of various screen companies at the 2021 Security Expo, LED displays have achieved ultra-high-definition image quality technology, and the application of Mini/Micro LEDs has become more than capable. 

Many companies combine Mini/Micro LED technology layout display products to provide visual smart security solutions, further improve the overall display effect and operability of the security command center, and create smart security, smart City, improve the level of urban management services, and realize scientific, refined and intelligent urban management.

The addition of 3D and 8K visual effects allows LED fine-pitch screens to realize “detail recognition”, which improves the “transmission and display” performance requirements of the security display system, and is conducive to the high-quality development of security display.

From the initial “technical melee” to today’s “fine-pitch home”, the security display market has also experienced many collisions and exploration stages between technology and the market. With the entry of Mini/Micro LED technology, LED displays can also be combined with face recognition technology, video processing technology, sound source positioning, VR, AR and other new technologies to help intelligent and high-definition security display.
