German automaker Mercedes Benz sells a lot of vehicles in China these days, and earlier this month, it opened an R&D center in Beijing – with the customer areas including a couple of giant LED walls that have a very tight 1.9 mm pixel pitch.
That’s tight enough to look at from up close without the image starting to break apart, as it will for the sorts of LED boards you see on things like roadsides and in stadiums.
These boards are made by the Chinese firm Leyard.
