What makes an LED screen HD?
People ask all the time what makes the LED screen HD?
As long as the screen is built in the proper Aspect Ratio, we can display HD content and it will look great, even when building smaller screens. However, with our 5mm panels for example, the screen would be over 21 feet wide and 13 feet tall before it contained enough pixels to be called “HD”. HD commonly comes in 2 different formats, the 720 and 1080 format. More recently 4k content is all the rage, but 720 and 1080 content still is the most widely available and commonly used. Here is the pixel configuration for a common HD picture:
For true 720 High Definition, the screen will be at least 1280 pixels wide by 720 pixels tall, with a total pixel count of 921,600.
For true 1080 High Definition, the screen will be at least 1920 pixels wide by 1080 pixels tall, with a total pixel count of 2,073,600.
So if you know the pixel count of your screen, using these metric’s you can know if your screen qualifies to fully display, pixel for pixel, an HD image without any upscaling.
