You’ve chosen your new LED digital signage, and you want the customer to have the best viewing experience possible. Deciding on the displays was only the first half of the equation; you’re not done yet. Just as crucial is mounting the displays to ensure that the brightness, color saturation and viewing angle appear as they should.
Here are some tips to consider for the installation as outlined in our free whitepaper, “Going Direct-View, Go Big or Go Home: Best Practices for Direct View LED Display Mounting.”
- Pixel pitch: That defines the quality of the image and how close someone should stand to the displays before starting to see the individual pixels.
- Indoor or outdoor use: Make sure you’ve chosen weatherized and IP rated screens for outdoor use (IP ratings measure protection against dust and liquids). Displays used indoors usually don’t need that type of protection.
- Support: Will the wall support the weight? Non-loading bearing walls can flex over time, which can alter the viewing experience.
- Servicing the unit: If a technician needs to access the back of the displays for maintenance, it’s recommended that 25 inches of clear space is needed.
- Mobility: A motorized mount can make servicing easier for one person to handle. And it may be able to be run through major manufacturers’ systems.
- Layout: You don’t have to use just a flat wall; you can also mount on a curved, concave or convex surface.
