Factors To Consider for Stadium LED Display

1.     High Brightness and Good Contrast

Weather conditions are unpredictable and keep changing. To maintain good visibility under outdoor light conditions, the stadium LED display needs to be bright so that viewers can clearly see what’s on the display, even on bright sunny days.

On the other hand, high contrast improves image clarity —highlighting images and text. This makes them an accessible viewing option for fans across most of the stadium.

2.     Wide Viewing Angle

Stadiums are generally large and so, stadium LED displays must have a wide viewing angle. This ensures spectators can easily view the screen content from all angles without inconsistent brightness or color distortion.

For example, an angle of 140° horizontally and vertically makes sure that close to 90-95% viewers can clearly see the content on display, regardless of their positioning in the venue.

3.     High Resolution

High resolution gives images greater detail ensuring that all videos, statistics and advertisements are in high-definition. When considering different resolutions for LED Displays for sports, select carefully according to the dimensions, distance and size of the stadium.

4.     Screen Protection

Previously, stadium screens were at risk of damage because of natural wear and tear due to regular use. However, recent advances in technology have allowed manufacturers to create sturdier and stronger screens.

Although, this doesn’t mean that stadium LED Displays nowadays require zero maintenance. It’s important to protect these investments for use over a long period of time.

Here are a few possible options for keeping your display protected

  • Using police tape or protective film on boundaries (like surrounding walls),
  • Practicing caution when cleaning screens using liquid cleaners. These could potentially result in water-related marks being left behind on the board itself.
  • Adding additional layers. For example: bubble wrap
