What is the Difference Between Indoor and Outdoor LED display

indoor led display

A very important difference of indoor LED display and outdoor led display is the LED’s brightness, Indoor LED displays are just bright enough to be seen indoors, but have not bright enough to be seen in direct sunlight. Outdoor led panel signs can be seen and used in full-on, mid-day sunlight, and are weatherproof to withstand the harsh environmental conditions. Sometimes, people choose an outdoor led panel sign for indoor use, they just want the led panel sign to be seen from the street.

Another difference between indoor LED screens and outdoor LED screens relates to the resolutions that the screens offer. Because outdoor LED screens are normally intended to be viewed from farther distances than their indoor counterparts, outdoor screens can rely on lower resolutions with very little compromise in terms of visibility. Indoor LED screens that are intended to be viewed from shorter distances require higher resolutions to achieve picture with optimal quality.

The most obvious and commonly thought of difference between indoor LED displays and outdoor LED displays relates to the ability of the display to withstand inclimate weather conditions. Because indoor LED displays are not exposed to the elements, additional protections are not necessary, whereas with outdoor LED displays, weather protection is not an option, especially in certain geographic regions where extreme weather conditions are frequently experienced.

No matter the type of LED screen you are looking to purchase, there are certain characteristics that you should be sure to take into account. There are reasons why we manufacture indoor LED displays the way we do, and there are other reasons why outdoor LED displays are manufactured differently. When deciding which LED screen is right for you, be sure to take each of these factors into consideration.
