  • What is Pixel Density?

     

    When researching LED walls, you will often hear reference to a “P” number, such as P10, P16, P5, P4, etc. This refers to the “pixel pitch” or ultimately, the density of the resolution of the device. LED Wall pixel pitch is chosen based on the distance from the wall of the first viewer. The closer the viewer, the smaller the pixel pitch has to be in order to present a cohesive image.

    Many of the early “visual effect” walls used in churches were P10 or higher, which demands that for video applications, the closest viewer be 75 or more feet away. At (or greater than) this distance, the image appears to the viewer as a solid image, not a random collection of dots.

    It is now common to have a P4, P5, or P6 wall in church, where the first seating position may only be 15 feet away, and the display can approximate HD or even 4K quality. Axia Concepts can be engaged to visit your site and work with you to design a video wall solution for a flat fee (plus travel.) The fee is refundable if an actual LED wall is purchased
