outdoor advertising billboard

With the advancement of social technology, outdoor advertising is rapidly transforming from traditional static billboards to dynamic digitalization. Outdoor advertising machine transmission information will not be affected by the weather while can bring good visual and auditory enjoyment, can be widely used in outdoor advertising playback, outdoor public information release, outdoor media communication, touch interactive query and other fields all-weather, which greatly improve the sense of picture hierarchy, and can better express details. The use scenarios of outdoor advertising billboards have gradually expanded from semi-outdoor to fully outdoor, and their challenges are more diversified.

The standard brightness of outdoor advertising player is to reach 1500 nits in an unobstructed sun environment to be called an outdoor display. Recently, a Singapore specialist digital signage consultancy conducted a set of reviews of outdoor displays. The results can be seen from a range of displays ranging from 450 Nits to 3,000 Nits, but a brightness of just 1,500 Nits does not look good in daylight. This means that the display brightness of only 1500 Nits will cause the attenuation and loss of visual communication, and cannot play a role in attracting public attention. However, SUNTUNE OHD series of outdoor billboards can achieve a brightness of up to 3000 Nits, which is exactly double the industry standard, ensuring a clear and bright display even in the face of midday bright glare, allowing the image to shine “backlight”.

As a screen display technology, “anti-glare” has been widely used in daily life such as mobile phones, tablets and displays. But for outdoor advertising billboards, if you don’t want to become a “public dressing mirror”, you need higher anti-glare indicators. Especially when applied to the information display scenario of the transportation industry, if the display is unclear or the refraction of strong light occurs, it will bring great risks to the road safety. SUNTUNE Outdoor Advertising Billboard provides enhanced picture visibility and reduced specular reflection through unique technology that enhances picture contrast and patented reflection cancellation film. Meanwhile, SUNTUNE outdoor advertising billboard is not only “anti-glare”, but also “anti-polarization”. Through the application of circular polarizing technology, the problem of “display blind zone” caused by traditional LCD displays when wearing polarized sunglasses is solved, and the road safety is guaranteed more comprehensively.

Outdoor advertising billboard is an important terminal in the construction of smart city informatization and an important element to create a city business card. The development of outdoor advertising billboards will provide a strong boost for the construction of smart cities.

bus digital display

With the development of smart cities, the demand for outdoor LCD advertising player is increasing, and there are many applications and uses, with a wide range of solutions and styles, then what kind of players can be better applied for users?

1. Exterior styling
To select a player, first of all, it depends on what kind of environment it will be installed in, such as: community gates, commercial streets, campus, bus stops, etc. The surrounding is different, the LCD advertising player is better integrated into it. SUNTUNE RECOMMENDS CHOOSING THE EXTERIOR STYLING MOST SUITABLE, OR HAVING IT CUSTOMIZED.

2. Configure features
Secondly, it depends on how the device is used, whether it will install and run specific software. If you only play pictures, videos, text and other information, you can choose an Android motherboard, or take the solution with HDMI motherboard. If you have software to run, you need to choose either Android or Windows, according to what type of the software and the configurations required. If there are interactive queries, you need to add touch capabilities. If face recognition is required, you need to add cameras for face recognition. Meanwhile many other features can be added, such as QR code scanner, fingerprint reader, printer, and so on.

3. Mode of heat dissipation
There are usually 2 kinds of outdoor LCD advertising player, namely air-cooling (IP55) and air conditioning (IP65). In areas with little temperature difference, air cooling can be OK to dissipate heat. If the temperature difference between day and night is large and the winter is relatively cold, it is better to use an air conditioner for heat control.

led billboard display

LED and LCD are two completely different light-emitting technologies; the former is light-emitting diode positive light, the latter is liquid crystal backlight light. Both technologies are widely used in mobile phones, TVs, commercial displays and other fields. Here’s SUNTUNE’s lay down analysis of the differences between these two for business applications.

1. LED displays compared to LCD displays in visual effect
LED display is composed of a number of 320mm*160mm (conventional size) LED units, regardless of size, can be infinitely spliced without splicing gaps, so the screen customization is high and the picture integrity is very good. LCD splicing screen is composed of several LCD units. The LCD unit specifications are usually 49 inches, 55 inches, 65 inches, etc. To choose the units properly, it needs to refer to the specifications of the entire screen. Besides, the picture integrity is not so good because of the splicing gaps.

2. In brightness
The brightness of LEDs is in the range of 800 to 6000 Nits, while the brightness of LCD is 250-1500 Nits. LCD screen gets low in brightness, not suitable for outdoor or the indoor with strong light. LED display, however, is not limited by light intensity and can be used both indoors and outdoors.

3. The power per square meter of conventional LED display is about 450W-800W according to the difference between dot spacing and other parameters, and the power per square meter of conventional LCD screen is about 350W, and the power consumption per square meter of normal use of LED display is greater than that of LCD screen. In specific places, the brightness of the LED display can be turned down so to reduce power consumption.

4. The LED is emitting light through the chip, and the color saturation is high. The LCD is through its backlight, and the color reproduction is average, plus each liquid crystal unit will have a certain color difference, resulting in the overall color general.

5. See it up close
For example, when viewing a screen within 1 meter, the LCD screen has delicate picture quality and high definition. The lamp beads of the LED display are obviously grainy and the clarity is average. However, standing at a normal visual distance of 2 meters away, there is little difference in image quality between the two. Of course, the clarity of the picture quality is also related to the model of the LED display, and the close-up picture quality of the small-pitch LED display is very clear.

6. In functions
Actually, the two are only used as a display function, there is no essential difference. Both have the function of playing videos, pictures, PPT and other materials.

So to sum up, LED or LCD, which one do you think is better? In fact, the most suitable is the best. Stay tuned for a separate SUNTUNE post on how to pick the right LCD display!
