For example, higher engagement, deeper brand images, higher efficiency for delivering information, and more revenues!
Now, we will talk about 3D display in a straightforward, but comprehensive way. This article aims to give you 3D screen insights and provide you with possibilities to get more profits from your projects.
You will get how it works, what can it bring to you, how to estimate your potential cost to plan the budget, and some of the most important stuff about 3D billboards you need to know!
So, what is the new advertising technology all about? We will start from the working principles behind it.
1. What is 3D Billboard?
3D billboard also refers to “3D naked-eye billboard”, meaning it creates 3D effects for people without 3D glasses. It is a new stream for many creative advertising projects and has become a hot issue in the industry.
There are many types of 3D LED screens including holographic projection type, time-sharing multiplexing type, volume type, cylindrical lens type, volume type, grating type, and so on.
To further explain what is 3D naked-eye display, you can describe this screen as a display that do not require any glasses or extra equipment to view the 3D image, and is different from UR and AR, which needs extra equipment.
The billboards show a three-dimensional anamorphic format to make it appear as if characters are approaching people from the screen.
Also, the multi-view technology allows people to view the 3D image regardless of where he stands, as long as still within a reasonable viewing distance.
However, the screen itself is still a 2D flat screen. The gorgeous 3D effect comes from an optical illusion that tricks the eye into believing something is real when it isn’t.
2. 7 Using Scenarios of 3D Digital Billboard
(1) Shopping mall and media facade
(2) Center of the business district
(3) Retail Store
(4) DOOH/Old building revolution
(6) Exploration hall with flow experience
The video rendering styles are flexible: modern style, anime style, mechanical style, and cartoon style. Almost all content styles can play their propagating roles much better than traditional 2D content.
With such an advanced and innovative advertising screen, you can expect to get more attention, broader brand awareness, and higher potential profits!
3. What Is 3D Billboard Price?
Although 3D billboard costs are various based on different specifications and manufacturing processes, they are more affordable than in previous years with the evolvement of technology and scale effect of LED industries.
The average 3D billboard price varies from thousands of dollars to hundreds of thousands of dollars considering its location, size, clarity, and quality.
Here are some other factors that relate to the final budgets, for instance, installation and structure. Moreover, designs like corner displays may also need additional costs ranging from dozens to hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Here we list some factors affecting the final prices:
(1) Screen size
The larger the size, the higher the price.
(2) Video complexity
The final visual effects depend largely on the 3D contents themselves. Whether it has handled details accurately has direct impact on the level of visual verisimilitude, and sometimes even may be costly.
(3) Production complexity
Typically, there are five steps of production: requirements defined, planning, producing content, correcting screen, and finishing product acceptance.
This refers to video time and production time. The longer the time of your display materials, the more expansive they are. And do not forget to take the production time into consideration to have a probable price in mind.
Do not forget a digital 3D billboard can be highly profitable by generating more income and offsetting your costs finally. That is why 3D billboard advertising becomes more popular than ever before and rising like a new mainstream after traditional printed billboard.
However, the prices are more expensive than a traditional printed billboards, which is needless to say.
So, what are the reasons for the higher prices you need to pay for it?
4. Why Are 3D Digital Billboards Better than Traditional Billboards?
3D LED display can do better than conventional displays in both advertising and entertainment as it performs better in both brand image development, content delivery, and also the final conversion rate.
Here we will give you more evidence to prove this point.
What Is 3D Advertising?
3D advertisements have more depth than traditional 2D advertisements as they can pop out from the place. In this way, interactivity can be improved hugely, and customers can have more comprehensive senses of what is the products about, and how the products work.
Simply to say, 3D advertisements draw crowd’s attention, and deeper your brands and products in their mind at the same time.
It will improve your conversion rate, and you can expect higher potential profits.
(1) More appealing advertising way
Compared with conventional billboards, 3D advertising billboard is no doubly more attractive. Using such screen, your advertisements and brands can stand out immediately in such a information explosion age.
In many developed countries such as Japan, America and Korea, 3D LED billboard has already become a trend, and has already been applied to many marvelous real cases.
(2) Effect of Internet celebrities
A gigantic, amazing, and interactive 3D billboard inherently has the specialties of the important landscape. The Internet celebrities in the city may take photos and videos of these vivid screens, and share your brands on the Internet then.
That really can be the good-value trick to attract huge human traffic for free, isn’t it?
(3) Higher public retention and conversion rate
Want your advertisements to get much more attention in a limited duration? 3D advertising can achieve this goal beyond all doubt!
It is obvious that the masses will stop for the 3D advertisements as the eye-catching videos can bring viewers experiences of both entertainment and education.
Put your brand in your potential customers’ priority when people search for the same products in their brains by choosing 3D billboard advertising as it can impress your targeted clients deeply, and effectively.
(4) Create a public tech space
Realizing an outstanding 3D LED screen must combine the design philosophy of the supporting building and the specificity of the screen itself.
For example, designers often depend on the corners of bearing buildings because the two sides can be wonderful conditions to create left and right views to perform 3D visual effects.
Just like we mentioned above, the working principle laying behind 3D LED display is binocular disparity caused by different images for the right and left eyes.
(5) Generate a bunch of revenues
The sponsorship alone can generate huge profits for you. The average cost of having 3D billboard advertisements varies from a range of $1,200 to $15,000 per month, and your orders can be ceaseless as many large companies are paying attention to such effective advertising methods.
It is not to mention that the screen can be your cash cow if you want to display and propagate your own brands.
The surging exposure rate will bring you much more business opportunities by reaching to huge potential targeted market, and get their attentions.
(6) Improve aesthetics
By providing the public with a unique visual experience, your promotional methods become a creative and aesthetic landmark and give your viewers unforgettable impressions and memories.
(7) Better user engagement
The golden rule for marketing is that if you grab people’s attention at first, and encourage their engagement, then you will get profits.
3D visualization is no doubly a more in-depth advertising method and is more appreciated by your customers. With 3D marketing, advertisers can create an experience that is more memorable than 2D ads.
This will guide your customers to pay attention to the contents you display, and interact with them.
(8) More advanced display technology
Traditional LED billboard for 2D content is flat, meaning you can’t produce 3D effect on it even the content is in 3D tech.
However, 3D displays are not flat typically, and contents produced for these screens should be especially with 3D effects.
Now, you may have already understood why 3D advertising billboard stands out from numerous advertising methods, how it promotes brands impressively, and demonstrate values of such a “high-end” sense.
5. Technologies of Naked-eye 3D LED Screen
There are two types of technologies that applied to this kind of LED displays. And the first type is parallax barrier.
How does a parallax barrier work?
A parallax barrier is a device placed in front of an image source such as a a liquid crystal display, so that it can display a stereoscopic or multiscopic image without the viewer having to wear 3D glasses.
Placed in front of the regular display, it consists of an opaque layer with a series of precisely spaced slits that allow each eye to see a different set of pixels, creating a sense of depth through parallax.
The second technology is Lenticular lens. These displays use the refraction and focus of lenticular lenses to change the direction that light travels.
6. How Do 3D Digital Billboards Work?
In short word, It works via “forced perspective”.
This term stands for such a phenomenon, that from certain vantage points, flat images can be viewed as dimensional. Just like in real life, the two different images in each eye will give us the depth we perceive in real objects.
For 3D naked-eye screen, it will show two different images as well, and both photos are taken from two different angles to be combined. Therefore, our left and right eyes will see different images without obvious perception, resulting in the depth observed in 3D video clips.
The videos can show a three-dimensional effect not only up-down, left-right, but also front-back, and long-distance close-up images.
You may want to ask – is there any real case for me to understand the principle further?
For SM building, the right part of the huge 3D LED billboard shows main view of the image, while the left part shows the left view of the image. Finally, a realistic 3D effect is performed.
That is why the stunning 3D effect comes from – a little tricks for your eyes with reasonable viewing distance, size, shadow effect and perspective relationships, creating much more impressive visual performances for all viewers.
Up to now, you may have already catch on why such a screen have huge potentials to optimize your business, and how is it differ from traditional advertising screen. So, do we have any corresponding products can recommend to you?
