The video wall measures more than 31 feet wide by 18 feet tall (9.5 meters by 5.5 meters) and is composed of 64 Leyard TWA1.2 LED video wall displays with a 1.2 mm pixel pitch. That delivers 7680 x 4320 resolution, and at about 10 to 12 feet away, the individual LED lights all stitch together into one big, crisp visual.
The street price of each of those 64 LED blocks is about $36,000 USD, hence the $2.3 million.
Leyard and Planar are also showing a 4K video wall using a pixel pitch of just 0.9 mm. I’ve seen 0.85 mm from a Shenzhen company at ISE, but 0.9 is about as tight as pixel pitches are getting these days.
The whole resolution as a measurement of indoor LED walls thing is not something I yet have my head around. I just think in terms of pixel pitch, but as you can see, a 1.2 mm wall here is 8K and the tighter 0.9 mm is 4 K.
I’ll do a post soon, or even better, if some LED smartypants would like to do a guest post …
