Outdoor LED Display Solution: P1.5 and P1.8 LED Display

in /by

As the pandemic begins to wane, more and more outdoor activities are being done one after another, which is causing the outdoor display industry to once again see a resurgence. Since fine pixel pitch LED display is the current display technology, outdoor LED displays are gradually progressing toward ultra-high definition and multi-value added features.

The pixel pitch, or how closely the tiny light-emitting pixels can be arranged on the LED display, has become a major topic of discussion in recent years when it comes to high-definition displays for outdoor LED screens.

What is Pixel Pitch?
Pixel pitch describes the density of each tiny LED pixel on an LED display and is the vertical and horizontal distance between the center points of each LED pixel. Pixel pitch is sometimes referred to as pitch or dot pitch, abbreviated as “P” and measured in millimeters. Thus a P1.0 LED display denotes an LED display with an LED pixel pitch of 1 mm.

The fixed-size circuit boards and backplanes sequentially mounted with LED beads are called LED modules. These LED modules are seamlessly stitched and stacked together to form a large indoor or outdoor LED wall.

Pixel pitch is important because it affects the visual quality of the outdoor display. Since pixel pitch represents the amount of space between two pixels, a smaller pixel pitch indicates less white space between pixels, which equates to higher pixel density and higher screen resolution.

Images can have smoother edges and better detail thanks to higher pixel density and screen resolution. It allows the viewers to get closer to the screen and yet enjoy a high definition image without the distraction of identifying individual split pixels.

Development of Outdoor LED Display
In Past years, the development of LED screens accelerated. At the moment, LED inline lights hold the top spot in the market for outdoor LED displays. The special nature of the straight plug itself determines the large point spacing between the LED lights, typically 4 mm, 5 mm or even larger.

The first outdoor LED displays to hit the market were for huge billboards in shopping malls and on highways. The visuals on the screens looked fantastic from hundreds of feet away, but when you approached close, the text and photos looked horrible.

People are increasingly expecting to see the image of a direct-view LED display up close as outdoor LED screens are used more frequently. The demand for high-definition viewing effects has led to the trend of pixel pitch of outdoor LED displays downsizing. Therefore, the space is getting smaller and smaller as LED technology develops and manufacturing techniques improve.

The pixel pitch of outdoor LED screens, LED advertising screens, and outdoor LED signs has gradually decreased from P10 to P3, P2.5, and is now capable of P1.8 and P1.5.

● P1.5 LED Display
P1.5 LED display refers to the LED module in the LED pixel pitch of 1.5mm, pixel density of up to 444,444 per square meters and the minimum viewing distance of 1.5 meters.

● P1.8 LED Display
P1.8 LED display refers to the LED module in the LED pixel pitch of 1.8mm, pixel density of 288,906 per square meters, and the minimum viewing distance of 1.8 meters.

P1.5 LED displays and P1.8 LED displays provide more pixels to form an image on the display for spectacular high definition image quality when compared to P20 and P16 LED displays. P1.5 LED displays feature a closer ideal viewing distance and greater resolution as a result.

Additionally, the narrow pixel pitch LED display technology, represented by P1.8 and P1.5 LED displays, is renowned for its great brightness, energy efficiency, and extended life. Wider viewing angles are also made possible by this technology, allowing images to be clearly seen from farther away or from a variety of angles. Narrow pixel pitch LED display screen also provides a larger color range and higher brightness.

Fine pixel outdoor LED displays are now widely used in applications where people can see the screen up close, such as advertising in airports and rail terminals, seamless LED video wall centers in control and operations rooms, and in parking lots of public and private buildings.

RIGARD Narrow Pixel Outdoor LED Displays
RIGARD has overcome the technological barrier and achieved a reduced pixel pitch of P1.8 and P1.5 for outdoor LED display, while the pixel pitch of the majority of present outdoor LED screens can only accomplish P2.5.


1. Superior Image Quality
As more and more businesses turn to outdoor LED displays to enhance the customer experience, RIGARD’s P1.5 LED displays and P1.8 LED displays offer the ideal combination of superior image quality and intuitive ease of use. We use video processing technology combined with high dynamic range (HDR) image optimization to add clarity and detail to the presentation of featured content, providing your audiences with more realistic and memorable content.

2. High Definition Image Display
RIGARD’s P1.5 LED displays and P1.8 LED displays feature refresh rates up to 3840 Hz and brightness levels up to 4000 nits. By using custom algorithms to analyze and optimize brightness levels in each content scene, our narrow pixel outdoor LED display screens provide you with bright and high-definition image displays.

3. Accurate Color Representation
Low grayscale levels on conventional LED displays make it difficult to represent red, green, and blue colors properly and without artifacts. RIGARD, however, overcomes these difficulties with the outstanding outdoor LED display technology, which boosts image color fidelity by keeping constant R/G/B levels. As a result, even in low-light settings like outdoor stage LED displays at night, our P1.5 LED displays and P1.8 LED displays can display content in the best quality with consistent and accurate color performance.

4. Flexible Installation
RIGARD’s outdoor display screens have a compact design with a 45° angle for high-precision stitching for more installation freedom. With no need for aisle space, our P1.5 and P1.8 LED displays provide full frontal access to important signage components, while complementing back access makes maintenance simpler and quicker.

5. Durable Performance
Outdoor LED displays are subject to stricter environmental adaptation standards than indoor displays. The P1.5 and P1.8 LED displays from RIGARD include high-performance silicone lamp faces that are waterproof on both sides. It can withstand moisture and salt spray even in hostile environments, extending the service life. To further guarantee that the narrow pixel pitch outdoor LED screens can function correctly in all usage circumstances, we will conduct extensive high and low temperature tests as well as salt spray tests before they are sent out for display applications in unique geographic regions.

There are more chances than ever for high-definition LED displays to offer an engaging visual experience when people are outdoors, whether it be LED scoreboards and stage backdrops or LED advertising billboards and traffic signs. And RIGARD narrow pixel pitch outdoor LED display solutions are made to suit your requirements.
