(1) Consider the right aspect ratio

Aspect ratio refers to the relationship between the width and the height of displays.

16:9 aspect ratio is the most common and standard ratio of LED stage screens. Also, this ratio can offer viewers better visual experiences.

(2) Determine screen size

You can calculate the screen size based on the venues’ dimensions and the viewing distance of audiences.

Here is a golden rule:

For the screen height of your LED screen for a stage, a target distance (distance from the LED screen to the last row of the audience) of 1/6 to 1/10 is acceptable.

That is, if the distance from your stage background LED screen to the last row is 30 meters, the height of your LED screen must be about 3 meters to 4.9 meters.

(3) Right resolution

Smaller pixel pitch refers to higher resolution and better image quality.

However, a smaller pixel pitch is not always the best answer as the higher cost. You can balance the quality and cost when selecting. Just tell the sales staff the viewing distance, and they will give you some useful advice.

(4) What is the mounting structure?

What installation methods can you choose? Hanging installation, ground-supported installation, wall-mounted installation, ceiling installation, or any other creative installation methods?

It’s important to select a mounting structure that is safe, stable, and does not obstruct the audience’s view.

(5) Decide configuration

For example, we need to consider lighting conditions. If the stage is brightly lit, then the screen can be brighter to ensure people can see the contents clearly.

(6) Keep regular maintenance

LED displays require regular maintenance to ensure that they’re working properly. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for maintenance and cleaning.

(7) What types of LED screens do you need?

Here we will talk about something deeper than only discussing indoor LED display or outdoor LED displays – there are some other points for you to consider when choosing the right types such as raw materials, maintenance ways, and design.

Raw materials – die-casting aluminum, steel or aluminum?

LED cabinets made up of these three common raw materials have their own special features and appropriate use scenarios.

a. Die-casting aluminum: light and high heat-dissipation raw materials with resistant to rust. Also, it has high flatness.

However, this kind of cabinet has a higher price, and comparatively fixed size than steel LED cabinets.

b. Steel cabinet: more affordable, and has more freedom on sizes to meet various requirements of customization.

However, the flatness can be a little bit weaker, and heavier in weight.

2. What Is Stage LED Screen?

A stage LED screen is a large screen used in concerts, theater productions, conferences, and other live events to provide visual content to the audience. 

It consists of a series of light-emitting diodes (LEDs) capable of producing bright and high-resolution images, videos, and graphics from simple texts to vivid 3D animation.

LED screen for stage has various specifications and configurations and can be installed in different sizes and shapes.

They are usually hung above the stage or placed on the sides, and can be controlled by a computer or video switcher to display dynamic content in real time.

Stage LED screens offer high brightness, contrast, and color accuracy, producing vivid and detailed images even in bright ambient light.

They are also highly customizable, which differs from LCD screens or other display technologies, meaning you can design creative shapes, various sizes, and other functions such as brightness monitoring.

3. 3 Points for Attention of LED Control System

For LED control system of LED screen for stage, there are some points for attention for you to take into account:

(1) High-loading capacity LED controllers

Generally speaking, LED stage screens are large in size and have high pixel density, which requires high loading capacity requirements for the sending card. 

Sometimes multiple control cards need to be cascaded and spliced together for control. 

(2) LED video processor may be required

To achieve better display effects, a LED video processor is usually needed to splice and cut videos, realize multi-window and picture-in-picture functions, and have strong scalability and finer, smoother video effects.
The maximum output resolution of the LED video processor is divided into multiple grades:

General: 1024X768,1280X1024,1440X900
HD: 1920X1080,2048X1152
Ultra-clear: 3840X1080,4096X1152,3840X2160,7680X1080

The maximum output resolution determines the capacity of the LED video processor.

(3) All-in-one LED processor

Some controller providers integrate LED controller with LED video processor, which can save energy and time to operate two seperate equipment.

6. How about Stage LED Display Price?

Want to make sure your trade show LED display can stand out from the competitor’s, and get more attention than any of them? There are some points you have to know to bring you more possibilities!

The cost for your stage screen project can conclude these factors below:

(1) LED display screen, LED control system and software

6.1 Factors Related to Stage Screen Cost

There is no a certain answer for this question, but you can get an approximate price by taking some important factors into accounts such as pixel pitch, quality, raw materials of LED cabinets, brightness, etc.

(1) Pixel Pitch

Pixel pitch is the distance between each pixel on an LED display. The smaller the pixel pitch, the higher the resolution and thus the price.

(2) Size

The size of the LED display is a key factor in determining the price. Larger screens require more LED modules and higher processing power, which can increase the price.

(3) Viewing angle

The viewing angle of an LED display can also affect the price. Displays with a wider viewing angle typically have a higher price due to the increased complexity in the manufacturing process.

(4) Brightness

The brightness of the LED display can also affect the price. Higher brightness displays require more advanced technology and can therefore be more expensive.

(5) Additional Features

Additional features such as interactive touchscreens, weather-resistant construction, and the ability to display 3D content can also increase the price.

For an accurate estimate of the price of a stage LED display, you can just contact a vendor of LED displays.

7. Stage LED Display Size Calculation

The size of a stage LED display can be calculated using the following steps:

Determine the viewing distance:

The size of the LED display will depend on the viewing distance of the audience.

That is, if the distance from your stage background LED screen to the last row is 30 meters, the height of your LED screen must be about 3 meters to 4.9 meters.

Determine the resolution:

The resolution of the LED display will also impact its size. A higher resolution will allow for displays with better clarity.

Calculate the size of the display:

Once the viewing distance and resolution have been determined, the size of the display can be calculated. This can be done using the following formula:

Display width = Viewing distance (in feet) / 1.5
Display height = Display width / Aspect ratio

The aspect ratio is the ratio of the width to the height of the display. Common aspect ratios for LED displays include 4:3 and 16:9.

16:9 ratio LED display

For example, if the viewing distance is 60 feet and the aspect ratio is 16:9, the display width would be 40 feet (60 / 1.5) and the display height would be 22.5 feet (40 / 16 * 9).

Keep in mind that these calculations are just a guideline, and the actual size of the display may vary based on other factors such as the layout of the stage and the size of the venue.

If you are not very sure about the actual size, you can just ask your LED display provider, or local professional AV companies.
