2. The Function of Stage Rental LED Screen

As an influential information medium, the most fundamental function of the display screen is to display important information.

The information you want to transmit can be delivered to the audience perfectly across some spatial distance restrictions. Stage rental LED screens are no exception.

In addition to display functions, people pay more attention to this product to combine with event content to bring audiences an immersive viewing experience.

(1). Break the distance limit

There are many display manufacturers now, and there are also many models and sizes of stage rental displays.

As a full-color display, the rental LED display is equipped with a data receiving card, which can accept pictures and video signals from various computer terminals or video players.

These hardware facilities help broadcast live, and the live broadcast picture can be clear and vivid.

At various large-scale concerts and cultural evenings, the application of rental LED screens breaks the seat limitation, allowing audiences far away from the stage to watch the performance.

(2). Deliver the content of the event

The second powerful function is a kind of display function.

However, because of the particularity of the application site, the rental display screen can be combined with the program content, producing unexpected effects. 

For example, show some beautiful pictures, slow-motion playback, close-up shots, etc. You can make personalized matches according to the program and play customized videos.

You also can change the stage background at will. Therefore, the LED display brings the artistic conception of the performance to the extreme.

3. 3 Tips for Choosing Stage Rental LED Screen

There are many models of rental display products on the market, so how can you buy the most suitable one among the many products?

The following aspects are the points you must pay attention to when choosing a stage rental display.

(1). Choose a display with a smaller pixel pitch for the main screen

Usually, the LED display screen used for small stage performances only contains the main stage screen.

However, the stage rental led screen used for large-scale events is composed of three parts: main stage screen, auxiliary screen, and extended screen. Their functions are also different.

The function of the main screen is to live broadcast the stage screen, replay great content, etc.

Therefore, you had better choose a display screen with a smaller pixel pitch. And the display screen will be more exquisite.

In general, a display with a pixel pitch controlled below p6 is an excellent choice for the main screen. In this way, the larger the screen area, the better the picture effect.

If the pixel pitch of the screen is too large, the pixels of the display screen will not meet the requirements, which will seriously affect the audience’s viewing experience.

(2). The sub-screen has a variety of options

On the large-scale event site, there are thousands of participants. One main screen cannot cover the entire audience.

Multiple sub-screens will be installed on both sides of the main screen. The function of the sub-screen is mainly to save the picture played on the main screen.

Its playback content is relatively abstract, such as dancing fireworks, flashing squares, etc.

Compared with the main screen, the sub-screen has more choices. If your budget is sufficient and you are looking for a shocking stage effect, the flexible LED display is a good choice.

They come in many shapes, such as s-shaped curved screens, cylindrical LED displays, circular LED displays, etc.

(3). The extended screen of stage rental LED display

Some large-scale concerts and stage performances will use relatively large venues, which makes it impossible to see the wonderful performances on the stage in some places.

At this time, a large screen will be placed on the side of the venue to broadcast live on the stage.

This screen can be called a video expansion, and the specifications used are often similar to the main screen.

If your budget is limited, you can also use cheap stage rental led screens with larger pixel pitches for the sub-screens.

For the images played on the extended screen, its audience is generally those who are particularly far away from the main stage.

For large-scale performances, the existence of sub-screens is necessary.

(4). Powerful control system

In addition to choosing a display body with a small pixel pitch, a sufficiently powerful control system will be a strong helper.

The large area of the stage determines the coverage area that the display must reach.

Therefore, as the stage background of the rental LED display, the area must not be too small.

Generally speaking, the stage rental LED screen has a large display area, high pixels, a large number of transmission cards, and a large number of module units.

Sometimes multiple controller cards are needed to control cascade splicing.

Therefore, a control system with powerful display performance is beneficial. If the quality of the control system is not good enough, the display effect of the screen will be greatly reduced.

In addition, the video processor can help patch and cut the video to realize simultaneous playback of multiple windows.

The video effect is more delicate and soft. The audience’s viewing experience will be much better.

(5). Lightweight stage rental LED screen

First of all, based on the particularity of the stage rental display application scenario, it is best to choose a rental screen that is simple to disassemble and light in weight.

Which size to choose depends on the area of the stage. The lightweight of the box makes it easy to transport and install.

Secondly, you had better adopt a standardized display lightbox structure. Because of the simple installation method, it can save time and labor costs.

4. 4 Factors in the Design of Stage Rental LED Screens

Before starting a stage rental display project, there are some factors such as the display model, display content, and installation site environment.

The following four major factors are the designers must consider when designing the scheme.

(1). The pixel pitch of the stage rental LED screen

Pixel pitch refers to the distance between two adjacent lights on the LED module, generally measured with millimeters.

For example, p3mm means that the pixel pitch is 3 mm. The smaller the pixel pitch, the higher the resolution of the picture.

In general, the pixel pitch of outdoor LED displays is relatively large, and the more common model is P10.

The pixel pitch of indoor LED displays is small, and p2.5mm is the most common. Therefore, according to the different venues, the consideration of rental display screens is various.

(2). Packaging technology

A factor that determines the quality of LEDs is the material, such as chips, brackets, and gold wires.

Another factor is the packaging technology. Currently, there are two mainstream packaging technologies on the market, DIP and SMD.

The DIP LED module is to make three light-emitting tubes together into a pixel point module, which is directly installed on the PCB board and soldered.

The process is relatively simple, and the cost is low. The distinguishing feature of DIP LED is its stability and durability, so it is mainly working outdoors.

SMD 3IN1 technology refers to the encapsulation and synthesis of three light-emitting points in a light-emitting tube.

This packaging technology has high requirements for materials and processes in the production process.

(3). Design of LED control circuit

The display effect of the stage LED display of the control system depends on the size and time of the current and voltage passing through it, so the control system mainly controls the power output of the LED.

At present, the LED power supply designed by PWM (pulse modulation) control method has a conversion efficiency of 80% to 90%, and the output voltage or current is very stable, which is a high-reliability power supply.

The entire display screen consists of multiple module units. To guarantee the reliability of the power supply and data, it is better to use a hybrid connection.

When a certain circuit source fails, other power sources will automatically perform current sharing.

(4). The requirements of the camera on the stage rental LED screen

Although the high refresh rate can ensure that the large screen can still respond in time under high-speed camera shooting.

Screen transition is smoother and smoother, and there will be no large-area splash screen phenomenon.

When the camera is shooting at the led screen, occasionally there will be stripes and strange colors like water waves.

It is the moiré phenomenon brought about by the digitization of TV cameras. This phenomenon affects the display effect of live broadcast and recording.

Some companies superimpose a layer of optical treatment screen on the surface of the LED display screen, which is composed of a specific ratio of special light-absorbing material and a microbead lens coating on the surface.

Through the use of the optical screen, the LED screen changes from the original grid-like light to continuous surface light. While increasing the contrast, it retains a higher definition.
