HOW TO GET YOUR HEAD AROUND LED PIXEL PITCH

January 30, 2018

When considering making the advertising investment of an EMC (Electronic Message Centre) for your business you want to ensure that you are buying the right product for your needs. There are many things to consider when choosing and EMC such as viewing distance, the speed of passerby's, optimal size, durability and pixel pitch to name a few. EMC's are great advertising investment for your business and you want to be sure you are getting the best value for your money. Below is an expert from a good article to help understand PIXEL PITCH...

Pixel Pitch & Exterior Displays

Given the range of environments and conditions for exterior LED displays, there are many factors to consider. As with interior displays, pixel pitch is among the most important. For many billboards and building façades, viewers are typically long distances from the display, meaning pixel density may be of less importance. However, there are walk-up outdoor applications as well, where high resolution (tight pixel pitch) is paramount. Additionally, in busier environments where multiple displays are competing for attention (think Times Square or Las Vegas), a higher-quality, higher-resolution display is of much higher value.

And finally, when choosing the right pixel pitch for your display, there are functionality considerations as well. Suppose a display owner wants to take a simple messaging approach with only text and unsophisticated graphics. In this case, a higher pixel pitch (less pixels, lower resolution) might be sufficient. On the other hand, a retailer who has carefully crafted a high-end brand with premium products may want a tighter pixel pitch (more pixels, higher resolution), not because of viewing distance but rather for image quality and better functionality.

What’s Best for My Application?

As you might expect, this is a very loaded question. There are many factors you should consider before making an investment in an LED display. If you’re not an expert in this technology, it’s extremely important for you to find one—a manufacturer, a consultant, an experienced buyer—you trust to help guide you through the decision process.

As explained above, pixel pitch is a huge consideration for this process. It goes hand in hand with other factors such as display size, viewing distance, ambient light conditions, weather and moisture protection, competing media, messaging functionality, image quality and much, much more.

Properly deployed LED displays have the capacity to increase traffic, improve audience engagement, and enhance customer experience. But understanding how the technology will impact both the viewer and your bottom line prior to investment can empower you to make the best decision for your specific needs and budget.

We believe well-informed customers make better decisions for their display needs, leading to better experiences for all involved, and, ultimately, healthier long-term relationships.

Sage Creek Village Centre: A beautiful and burgeoning neighbourhood.

July 11, 2017

 Since 2006, Sage Creek has been one of Winnipeg's most beautiful and burgeoning neighbourhoods, boasting fantastic new homes and an abundance of natural walking trails. This year is set to be another formative step for the community; their new K-8 school opens this fall, and their Village Centre for businesses continues to see exciting growth, including a brand new tenant pylon sign.

   

Electra Sign has worked previously with Qualico to bring our top-quality pylon signage to the Sage Creek Village Centre, and we were more than happy to meet their needs again when they came to us with this new project. We worked with their designers and established a winning look that took the style set forth by our previous sign and advanced it, accenting our brilliant LED cabinets with exposed architectural elements and a gorgeous stonework base. And of course, no major pylon sign is complete without an award-winning Watchfire EMC. 

  

With a strong design in place, it was up to our dedicated team of engineers and manufacturers to bring this project off the page and into reality. As always, they were up to the challenge and delivered true-to-concept results that will stand proud for years to come alongside the remarkable architecture already on display at Sage Creek Village Centre. 

 

Last but certainly not least... After carefully transporting the new pylon sign to its new home, the Electra Sign install team ensures everything is just right on-site before being among the first to enjoy the sight of a new sign well done. They won't be the last though; the businesses in the Village Centre will be more visible than ever thanks to their new pylon. We hope you'll stop by and see for yourself. 

 

If you're looking for a quick bite to eat, taking time for self-improvement, or just need some speedy & convenient service, the Village Centre has you covered no matter if you call Sage Creek home or if you're just passing through. For a full list of businesses, check out Sage Creek's website. And if you're considering a pylon sign for your own development, get in touch with one of our friendly account executives and find out today what a great sign can do for you.
