Transparent or mesh LED displays

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 3 main applications, “media facades” (on the large walls of buildings and skycrapers), shop windows (behind the glass in retail business) and “staging” (for TV studios or theatres). In all 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.

What are the features and benefits?

When it comes to media facades or shop windows, 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 16 mm, which is OK for medium-long viewing distances and very large format outdoor displays (hundreds if not thousands of square metres) or 7.8 mm vertical pitch (3.9 mm horizontal) for shop window led displays.

You want to add up to this, other exceptional features like weight per square metre (around 15 kg/m2), up to IP65 rating back and front, hidden cables and connectors and remote power boxes, unique heat dissipation by material (normally aluminium).

All these features make transparent LED displays or “digital mesh” the ideal product for special environments. High brightness of LEDs used for this special series also grants daylight visibility. Other products, often based on individual pixels and not LED bars, are ideal for night facades and for architectural installs that get close to LED lighting.
