LED Wall - minimum viewing distance, a quick calculator

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

We get a lot of questions about how to properly calculate the minimum viewing distance for LED video walls of specific sizes.  Here's an easy calculator. 

Take the video wall pixel pitch in millimeters, multiply by 3 and add 10%. 

For example, we'll use a very common 3.91mm pixel pitch wall panel.  3.91 x 3 = 11.73 + 10% is 12.9'. 

If you view the wall at any closer than about 13', the picture will appear to be very grainy.  The reason for this is that LED wall panels have relative low native resolution (a half-meter panel with 3.91 pixel pitch uses just 128x128 pixels), and it takes several individual panels to create a presentation display like you'd see in an auditorium or church.  A 4x7 grid of these panels will create an 80x139" display (about the same size as a 12' projection screen).  That display will have a native resolution of 896x512 pixels. 

I hope that helps you understand a bit more about minimum viewing distance.  If you have questions about LED video walls and whether they're a good fit for your application, please call us at 800-747-7301.

   

FCC Auction - more news on wireless microphones of the future.

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

The FCC has just completed another round of auctions, selling off more of the wireless spectrum that we use for wireless microphones.  The short story is that your wireless microphones that operate between 617-698MHz will be phased out at some point starting after 39 months from today. And you will have to replace them. 

In 2010, we went through this with you and our goal is to keep you as prepared as possible for what comes next.  So here is some news from the Shure website, with a closing paragraph from us. 

--

January-February 2017 -- Forward Auction Stage 4 - Wireless telecom companies bid on the spectrum. Stage 4 of the forward auction has raised enough money to meet the minimum requirements to be declared successful. Thus, we now know that 84 MHz, from 614 MHz through 698 MHz, of spectrum will be reallocated.  Stage 4 of the forward auction raised $19.63 billion.

How will the Auction affect my wireless systems?

What others say

The new microphone worked great! The guy running our sound board yesterday said he didn't know the choir sounded that good! We will want to order at least one more.

Thanks,
