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.

History repeats itself in grand style: Centennial Concert Hall

June 28, 2017

What began as an urban renewal project in 1960 has to this day remained the centre of attention in Manitoba's arts & culture community. The Manitoba Centennial Centre Corporation is the overseer of Centennial Concert Hall, Manitoba Museum, The Planetarium, and the Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre (and more)! The MCCC stands proud among the finest of Canada’s cultural organizations. 

On October 1, 1965, the shovels first hit the ground for a concept that would house incredible programs under the MCCC umbrella of performing arts. Three years later, Centennial Concert Hall opened its doors. Professionals from all over Canada worked together to create this landmark, $8 million, 253,014 square foot building; a venue that would go on to host some of the world's most talented performers in the following decades. 



In 2007, Electra Sign was tasked with creating a sign structure that would complement the surrounding buildings, draw visual attention to the area, and further create awareness for the programs offered. Now, more than a decade
 later, our crew returned to Centennial Concert Hall to upgrade the sign's electronic messaging centre, replacing the previously installed 16mm model with the latest high resolution 12mm model from Watchfire Signs. The difference in picture quality has to be seen to be believed, but ease-of-use received an upgrade as well! Less than a day after installation had concluded, Gerry McDougal (Manager, Marketing and I.T.) had the Concert Hall's messages brilliantly displayed for all of Winnipeg's passersby to see. 

With amazing shows, exhibits and more for the whole family to enjoy – visit Centennial Concert Hall and the entire Manitoba Centennial Centre and learn more about the many venues offered. Located in the heart of the city, access is simple via bus, bike, car, or take a walk and enjoy the upcoming celebrations of Canada’s 150th birthday along the way!
