There are numerous sizes of LED poster screens available on the market, but what is the best size? The answer is 2 meters height with a pitch of 1.875 is best and here’s why.

Why are 2 meters high optimal?

Because the average height of people is 1.7m or a little higher, so displayed on the screen needs to reserve a total of 20cm above and below the spare part, so the ideal height of the poster screen should be about 2 meters. While the characters in the poster screen accounted for about 90% of the height of the screen, the poster and the human are 1:1 display without doing any scaling, it can achieve the best display results and meet the user’s user experience.

In addition. The traditional exhibition stand at a height of 2 meters, poster screen as a more intelligent display device. It can seamlessly play the traditional exhibition stand design files, to achieve rapid replacement.

Why choose 1.8mm pixel pitch and 6 cabinets the best?

  • A single cabinet pitch is the 320 * 180;
  • in order to meet the 16:9 ratio, the specific system single cabinet 600 * 337.5 size;
  • The best pitch is 1.875mm (i.e. 600/320 or 337.5/180);

If you use the above 2.0mm pitch cabinet, the resolution is less than 2K, affecting the visual effect.

 if you use less than 1.8mm pitch LED display cabinet, the resolution is more than 2k. You need to customize additional material, at the same time, it will also increase the LED card cost.

why not use 640 * 480 or 640 * 320 cabinet?

According to scientists on the human body structure research, found that the human two eyes of the field of vision range is a rectangle with an aspect ratio of 16:9, so the TV, monitors and other industries are based on this golden ratio of size.

 At the same time, 16:9 is the international standard for high-definition television for Australia, Japan, Canada and the United States and Europe’s satellite television and some non-HD widescreen television; 

  • The aspect ratio of 640 * 480 cabinet is 4:3;
  • The aspect ratio of 640 * 320 cabinet is 2:1;

While 600 * 337.5 cabinet aspect ratio is exactly 16:9, the overall visual effect is best.
