Deep Analysis of Pixel Pitch for LED Video Walls


When it comes to LED video walls, pixel pitch is one of the most important factors to consider.

This article will teach you everything you need to know about video wall pixel pitch, specifically when it comes to viewing distance.

What is pixel pitch?

Video wall pixel pitch describes the distance between 2 pixels in millimeters, sometimes called dot pitch.

This distance largely determines the appearance and performance of the LED video wall.

In summary, smaller pixel pitch means less space between pixels. Smaller pixel pitch results in higher pixel density and higher screen resolution.

Some people think pixel pitch and resolution are the same thing. This is a major misunderstanding. They are related, but not the same.

Why is pixel pitch important?

Pixel pitch is very important and affects the optimal viewing distance of your monitor.

Lower pixel pitch values result in images with smoother edges and finer detail. Even if the viewer is close to the LED video wall, he can enjoy a clear image instead of individual pixels.

It's worth noting! While higher pixel density can improve visual quality, that doesn't mean smaller pixel pitch is always ideal. At longer viewing distances, higher pixel density loses its visual advantage and increases cost.

There is a guideline when determining viewing distance and pixel pitch. That is, the smaller the pixel pitch, the shorter the minimum viewing distance.

Therefore, a 1.2mm led screen will have a higher resolution and a smaller optimal viewing distance than a 1.6mm led screen.

What pixel pitch is right for you?

The answer is that consumers can determine the pixel pitch value of the LED screen by determining the viewing distance of the screen.

For example, LED screens in studios require a smaller pixel pitch to provide a clear image to nearby viewers. And LED screens played in front of the public, such as those suspended on the stage, can use higher pixel pitch.

Commonly used pixel pitch measurement methods are for reference only

Indoor led screens generally use LED displays with a pixel pitch of 4mm to 20mm.

In a retail or office environment, 4mm pixel pitch is generally considered optimal. Because most people sit near the led screen.

The pixel pitch of airport LED screens is usually 5mm to 6mm, which makes it easier for tourists to view them at close range.
