Transparent or mesh LED displays

For a few types of installations of LED displays, the ideal solution is today represented by transparent models, i .e. the ones shaped by LED bars (vertical or horizontal). In particular there are 2 main applications, “media facades” (on the large walls of buildings and skycrapers) and “staging” (for TV studios or theatres). In both cases the greatest advantage is given by lightweight LED panels, that can be easily mounted on simple and cheaper structures than they would be with traditional LED screens. These LED panels can also be mounted in special shapes, also curved, different from standard TV aspect ratios. When it comes to media facades, you also get the greatest advantage of “see-through” that allows for light to pass in between the bars and visibility from the inside to the outside. As a matter of fact the more transparent the LED display the further the LED bars and the larger the pixel pitch. To leverage on 70% transparency rate you need to opt for pixel pitches larger than 30 mm, which is OK for medium-long viewing distances and very large format displays (hundreds if not thousands of square metres). But today there are extra-ordinary products with 16 mm pixel pitch (which is good from medium-short viewing distances and sizes of dozens of square metres) that guarantee transparency rates of up to 50%. You want to add up to this other exceptional features like weight per square metre (around 15 kg/m2), IP65 rating back and front, hidden cables and connectors and remote power boxes, unique heat dissipation by material (normally alluminium). All these features make transparent LED displays or “digital mesh” the ideal product for harsh environments. High brightness of LEDs used for this special series also grants daylight visibility for pixel pitches up to 70 mm. Other products, with 80, 100 or more mm pixel pitch, often based on individual pixels and not LED bars, are ideal for night facades and for architectural installs that get close to LED lighting.
