5 Differences between LED Transparent Film Screen and Transparent Screen

In the continuous development process of LED display screens, various segmented products have emerged, which have gained significant market share by being more suitable for practical applications and convenient for end users. LED transparent film screen as a flexible LED screen is one of them. 

As a newly emerging star product, what is the difference between it and LED transparent screens? This article takes you to understand.


1. Main differences between LED transparent film screen & LED transparent screens:

Film Screen and Transparent Screen

(1) Permeability: Both LED film screens and LED transparent screens have permeability, but due to the simpler structure of transparent LED film, their permeability is higher.

(2) Flexibility: LED film screen has some flexibility and can be attached to curved glass. LED transparent screens have a fixed box structure and do not have flexibility.

(3) Weight: The LED film screen has an extremely light weight, approximately 1.3kg/m2, and the LED transparent screen is 5-8kg/m2.

(4) Installation method: The LED display film can be attached to glass, making installation extremely simple. The transparent LED screen needs to be simple and fixed, which is relatively cumbersome.

(5) In terms of raw materials for production, the biggest difference between the two lies in the substrate material and lamp beads:

From the design principle, the LED film screen is made of soft board materials such as PET as the substrate, while the hard light strip LED transparent screen is made of PCB material. Transparent screen products designed with both materials have the characteristics of high transmittance and lightweight, such as some large spacing models, which even have a transmittance of over 90%. When the screen body is not in use, it can maintain sufficient indoor light without affecting environmental lighting. 

The simple structure and lighter weight make installation faster. But the former has a certain degree of flexibility, which is the secret of the flexibility of LED film screens.

(6) In terms of product design, both use new materials, especially LED beads, which have less selectivity compared to boards and controllers. The LED beads used in conventional LED transparent screens are RGB three color patch beads, while the LED patch screen uses built-in IC beads with integrated circuit ICs. 

Compared to conventional LED transparent screens, this is the secret that LED film screens are lighter, thinner, and more transparent. This built-in IC light bead can integrate the control circuit onto the LED, making the circuit simpler, smaller in size, and easier to install. 

Moreover, the circuit does not require additional design of redundant control components, which not only increases the overall transparency of the transparent screen, but also reduces the main cost of IC components.

2. Advantages of LED film screen


Transparent LED film screens are visually integrated with buildings, without affecting their original style and lighting. They have the characteristics of light weight and thin screen body, and have obvious technical advantages in the field of construction media. 

Unlike traditional LED display screens, LED film screens have characteristics such as softness, transparency, and lightness, making them more versatile and easier to install and maintain. 

These features not only facilitate users, but more importantly, they can explore new market blue oceans for the application of LED display screens, and even form a new LED display screen trading mode. In the fiercely competitive era of future display technology, LED transparent display screen technology has also been further improved.

The LED transparent film screen has high visibility and can present a bright and beautiful image effect, making the product’s image more eye-catching. 

The super strong colors create an excellent visual experience for users. With the recognition of transparent display technology by more people, LED transparent film screens are widely used in fields such as aerospace, commercial buildings, shopping centers, as well as glass display windows and commodity display cabinets in luxury and jewelry chain stores. 

LED transparent film screen products use glass, display cabinets and other carriers to display commercial advertising information and recommended products to users, with a strong sense of technology.

The above is the difference between LED transparent film screen and transparent screens. Although both can be applied in the fields of glass curtain walls and glass display windows, relatively speaking, LED film screens are mainly used in places with glass, while LED transparent screens have advantages in fields such as sky curtains and stage art. 

It’s not that LED film screen or LED transparent screens are better, both are representative products in segmented fields and have great potential in the future display screen market.
