Energy-saving LED screens: Green Technology
What are led walls?
Led walls are giant screens made with led technology, composed of several panels or tiles / cabinets, which, once assembled together, are able to reproduce static or moving pictures.

How much energy do led display consume?
The power consumption of LED screens is determined: by the brightness of the LEDs (nit), the size of the screen, the number of LEDs that compose it (graphic resolution) and by the visual content transmitted.
The higher the operating brightness of an L.E.D. screen, the higher its consumption. The cost of the electricity bill of an LED display, therefore, can vary from a few tens to several thousands of euros/month.
In Macropix, energy saving starts from the selection of technology like common cathode and individual physical components, like LEDs and ICs; we choose solutions that guarantee considerably lower power consumption than average.
Willing to save on electricity bill and contribute to a greener environment? Omnibus! Software dedicated to power saving
Macropix has developed and patented, within its digital signage Omnibus software, a system that allows you to manage and control the energy consumption of the display based on the single visual content and on the individual frames that compose it, offering a real time overview about economic and environmental savings . This can be applied both for outdoor and indoor LED displays.
The software examines and manages in real time:
- physical characteristics of the display (i.e. nominal consumption)
- setting of brightness during the day and in compliance with local regulations in force particularly at night
- power consumption thresholds can be set on the basis of the desired maximum load for technical or commercial limitations
- brightness management in daylight to comply with local regulations in force and guarantee top visibility
- switch-on and switch-off cards
Omnibus analyzes each frame of the video or image in the playlist by calculating an average of the total consumption. Every single content can be checked in preview so that those who produce creativity can have an immediate return on power saving.
Ledwall Ekoled energy efficiency rating of LED displays
MacroPix has also patented LUXIO product line, which provides the integration of white LEDs together with the red, green, and blue (RGBW) resulting in extra energy saving, under 300 W / m2 at a very high brightness (up to 20,000 NIT) for those special locations exposed to strong solar radiation. But that is not all.
The company has introduced “power saving” LED display solutions – EKOLED – which have improved physical features and optimized energy saving through the use of very bright LEDs integrated with “common cathode” technology. MacroPix products guarantee customizations that comply with the reference standards. The rating of different products go from mimimum 3 leaves (average power saving, up to 15%) to maximum 5 leaves (maximum power saving, up to 25%).
The management software, Omibus, includes special features for managing the on-site advertising schedule.

Management and programming: How do ledwalls work?
When we talk about led walls we refer to a cutting-edge technology that is increasingly requested by architects, designers, consultants, creatives, professionals who see the dream of digitizing any surface, even curved or with special shapes such as squares, triangles, come true. , parallelepipeds, spheres, cubes. MacroPix is made up of a team of experts who have been working with this technology for years and know all its secrets. Unlike many operators in the sector, we have proprietary technology and software, we rigorously select and control the quality of suppliers, we do not promise but we guarantee the safe use of the product for as long as needed. Thanks to this differentiation, MacroPix is today the market leader in fixed installations.
As described above, with the proprietary “Omnibus” software you can monitor consumption based on the video content you want to include in the playlist; with “Curator”, another proprietary software, you can manage the brightness of the ledwall automatically depending on the time, season, sun exposure (brightness above 5000 NIT and up to 12000 NIT allow viewing even in maximum exposure, while after sunset the brightness is reduced to less than 10%) and you can monitor remotely main screen parameters.
How much does an outdoor led display cost?
The price of an outdoor led display varies depending on the size, the model and therefore the resolution of the screen, particularly on the pitch i. e. the distance between one RGB pixel and the most adjacent. Each product can be customized to meet any technical and budgetary requirements. Let’s say that an LED display with “standard” characteristics starts from a price per square meter of 1,500 euros.
