Viewing Distance and Pixel Pitch

A common source of confusion is the distinction between “resolution” and “pixel pitch,” so let’s first define our terms. Most people know resolution from its use in describing TV screens and digital photos. We intuitively understand that “high resolution” means a lot of pixels.

However, since TVs and photos tend to come in predictable sizes, people have come to associate high resolution with tightly packed pixels (and therefore a sharp image) but that’s not necessarily the case. A 300×400-pixel photo might look sharp at six inches wide, but blown up to six feet, the same image would look blocky.

1. The term we use to describe the distance between each pixel is “Pixel Pitch LED Screen”, if you’re considering a led video wall, settling on a pixel pitch is one of your first decisions.

  • 1). Consider the Viewing Distance

Tightly packed pixels are more expensive. They look fantastic even up closely, but you don’t want to invest in quality that will go unnoticed. Human eyes can discern about one millimeter in pitch for every eight feet of viewing distance. From 16 feet away, a two-millimeter pitch delivers the best observable image. Anything tighter than that is overkill.

  • 2). Consider Your Content

You intuitively understand that high-resolution video would be wasted on a low-resolution display. That would mean lost visual information. The resolution of the content and the led display should match up. Whether you’re repurposing existing video or developing fresh goods, you will want to know what its resolution is going to be, because that will determine how many points of light you will require from a led display.

Here’s the thing: once your content resolution is set, your pixel pitch will govern the size of the overall display. With more pixels packed into a super-fine pitch, less wall space is needed. Modules with lower pixel densities will cost less but also take more space (and more modules) to do the same job.

  • 3). Ever-larger Resolutions

You’ve heard of “4K,” right? (It’s a bit of a misnomer. At 3,840 pixels across, the 4K UHD standard is just shy of 4,000.) So, here’s an easy-to-follow example. Using D3’s ultra-premium P1.6 modules, a 4K display would be roughly 20 feet wide and 11 feet high.

Using less densely packed P2.0 led modules would likely lower your overall cost, but it would also increase the display width by five feet and the height by three feet. Finally, for a comparable visual experience, we would want to apply Rule #1 above: position viewers of a larger display (wider pitch) roughly three feet further back than viewers of a smaller display (tighter pitch).

There are many factors that go into the design of a led display but remembering these two basic rules will make it easier for you to decide a logical starting point for your display’s pixel pitch. There are some data in theory wp hitch can reflect the relationship between the pixel pitch and the best viewing distance.

Here Are A Few Cases to Illustrate:

2. Southeast wisdom-city, a total construction area of 271622.48 square meters. The project is in the southeast area of Shijiazhuang city, south of the second ring road and sports street Interchange southeast, covering about 1500 acres, is the provincial capital of the village of large rules.
