What is an LED Video Wall? Why Get One?

This question might seem obvious, but more information always helps with decision-making. An LED video wall is essentially an array of smaller LED display panels combined. When it comes to LED video walls, size is rarely an issue. However, there are still many considerations before getting one. Today, we’ll be looking at five of them.

1.Proven Applications and Differentiation from Outdoor LED Displays

The LED video wall is a proven tool for advertising, entertaining, and information sharing. It’s important not to confuse it with an outdoor LED display. They differ entirely in their structure, display quality, and purpose. While LED video walls aren’t typically used in retail, industries like real estate, education, corporate, and even transportation can benefit from their features.

That being said, it’s crucial to have a clear purpose for your LED video wall. Identifying the specific purpose and expected return on investment (ROI) is essential. Without a clear direction, the investment may not be justified, and the expected benefits may not be achieved. LED video walls might be a common sight in Singapore, but not every business can afford them.

Now that we’ve set the foundation, let’s dive into the considerations for purchasing an LED video wall.

2.Installation and Maintenance Complexity

It’s vital for businesses to understand and accept the complexity involved in installing and maintaining an LED video wall. While the business doesn’t need to be an expert on the process, it should recognize the additional steps involved in setup.

Setting up an LED video wall can be more complex than it initially appears. It involves not only mounting multiple displays but also configuring hardware and software to work seamlessly together. As such, regular maintenance is essential for addressing display alignment, color calibration, and fixing dead pixels or faulty components.

3.Cost: Display, Maintenance, and Operation

Beyond the initial cost of the display, businesses often overlook maintenance and operating costs. Regular maintenance is important for optimal performance, and the LED video wall uses significantly more energy compared to an LED display, especially when displaying videos.

4.Content Management and Considerations

Projecting content on an LED video wall is entirely different from a home television. Resolution and aspect ratio can negatively impact the display if not considered carefully. Aspect ratio determines the frame’s shape and dimensions, affecting how the content is displayed.

Resolution directly impacts the quality and detail of the content. While a higher resolution allows for more intricate details, the level of detail in the content itself also matters. If the original content lacks detail or is low quality, increasing the resolution won’t necessarily improve the overall appearance.

An efficient content management system (CMS) is crucial to address these challenges. A CMS not only manages and updates content effectively but also coordinates and schedules it.

5.Heat and Noise Considerations

Despite efficient energy consumption and heat dissipation, an LED video wall will still generate heat. While cooling fans are commonly installed to prevent overheating, the noise they produce can be a concern, especially in quiet environments.


LED video walls are not just about putting together multiple screens. They involve technical complexities, cost considerations, content challenges, and ongoing maintenance. To fully utilize their potential, it’s important to understand and plan for these factors. Contact us today to learn more!
