in /by

The integration of pop culture, global investors, brands, live streaming and social sharing has driven the explosive growth of the esports industry. Various esports games have then gradually established league mechanisms, bringing new market opportunities for other industries.

Among them, esports live streaming, as one of the most important parts of esports events, has guided a new direction for the LED display screen industry and promoted the development of esports LED displays.

With the inclusion of esports in the 2022 Asian Games in Hangzhou, LED display screens have an unparalleled advantage in esports live streaming thanks to their ultra-high definition, 5G + 8K, multi-screen interactivity, and other technology support.

In order to allow fans from any angle to enjoy the high-definition visual and fully experience the esports competition, the Hangzhou Asian Games Electronic Competition Venues installed 15 huge high-definition LED display screens for real-time live broadcast.

LCD vs LED vs OLED Screens for Esports

Since the presentation of real-time game images is the main focus of the display requirements in gaming competitions, there are tight criteria for the size and instant response of the display screen. More than that, in order to show the audience every aspect of the fight process, a huge screen with high brightness, contrast, and color saturation is also required.

LED, LCD, and OLED are the three most common display types on the market today. Despite having the finest image quality, OLED screens are too expensive for use in widespread commercial applications. As the most primitive display technology, LCD screens fall short of LED screens in terms of brightness, clarity, contrast, and endurance.

An ideal option for esports events is an LED display screen. They have high refresh rates, high definition, high contrast, and they can combine with high dynamic, high frame rate, and 3D virtual reality to achieve an immersive viewing experience. LED display screens are good at showing the audience synchronization of every detail in esports. Additionally, LEDs can precisely show the stunning visual effects of the game world because it has brightness and contrast on par with or even better than OLED.

Where is the LED Screen for Esports Applied?

The building of the tournament venue is obviously crucial given that the esports game is recognized as an international event. Each esports venue will be equipped with large esport LED screens.

According to the Esports Venue Construction Standards released by the China Stadium Association in 2017, esports venues are divided into four levels: A, B, C and D, and esports venues above the C level must be equipped with LED display screens. The standard also specifies that the venues should comprise at least one primary screen and numerous subsidiary screens to ensure that the audience can watch comfortably from all angles under normal circumstances.

Technical Requirements for LED Screens for Esports

As with conventional sports events, the emphasis of esports competition is live gaming and huge screen viewing. LED screens for esports in real-time presentation, network information dissemination, and ultra-high definition display, however, have more demanding technical requirements than those for general sports events.

1. Low latency, high frame rate and high refresh rate

In contrast to other display technologies, the LED screens for esports must broadcast the game screens in real time with a very low latency in order to fully immerse the audience in the intense action. To enable real-time flawless synchronization without scan lines and lagging, the delay at the receiving end of the LED display screen should be less than 2 frames.
On top of that, LED screens for esports require nanosecond screen response time, high frame rate of 144fps, and high refresh rate of at least 3,840Hz to guarantee a consistent viewing experience for both online and offline viewers. If the screen response time has a delay of 3-5 milliseconds, there are heavy shadows and trailing when playing intense sports visuals, greatly affecting the viewing experience of the audience.

2. Ultra high definition (UHD)

The most fundamental demand for LED display screens across all businesses is now HD display. However, HD display is crucial during an esports competition since it makes it easier for players and spectators to see every detail of the game, including fine textures, small symbols, and text.

High-definition displays for esports contests are now feasible thanks to advancements in fine pitch LED display technology. The smaller the pixel pitch a LED screen for esports has, the more LED pixels work on the LED module to produce HD images. For instance, a P1.8 LED display has at least 284,444 pixels square meters to produce high-definition images.

3. High brightness, high contrast and high grayscale

Since esports events are frequently hosted indoors, there will inevitably be intense stage lighting. As a result, the esports LED screens must feature high brightness, high contrast, and high grayscale in order to completely restore the original color of the source image and display as many details as possible for each game frame.

To further enhance image quality, this necessitates LED screens for esports to additionally support HDR10. With HDR10, you can distinguish a wider range of colors and depth between lighter and darker tones. HDR10 technology also combines the effects of dimming and altering brightness levels to produce game images at the greatest nits levels in addition to balancing color and contrast.

4. Large size and wide angle

As opposed to traditional sports competitions, what draws the audience’s attention is the exciting screen feedback during games, not the player’s action scenario. Therefore, the size of the LED screens for esports must be large enough, and the four side viewing screens must be very simple to construct. This necessitates flexible installation capabilities and seamless splicing in the esports LED displays.

Furthermore, the LED screens for esports need to have a wide angle so that everyone in the stadium can see the image on the screen well. The LED display screens that have a 160° horizontal viewing angle and a 140° vertical viewing angle can dramatically enhance the viewing experience for audiences in various locations on the scene.

5. Wide color gamut

The vibrant nature of the gaming industry further raises expectations for the color display capabilities of LED display screens. Wide Color Gamut is also required for LED screens for esports in order to enhance color accuracy and bring each game character to life for the audience.

6. Extremely high stability

The Actions per minute (APM) of professional gaming players can be more than 300 times, and some even more than 500 times. Therefore, the esports LED screens need to be highly stable and durable. To avoid negative influence on participants and the audience’s viewing experience, the esports LED display cannot flicker or go out or in other unexpected circumstances while there is a live broadcast.

What is IMD LED Display and Difference Between IMD and COB Encapsulation?

in /by

In recent years, the popularity of 5G network, the upgrade of digital services, the application of conference visualization, the in-depth practice of smart cities and the continuous expansion of the security monitoring market stimulate the development of HD display market segmentation. HD display, which is being upgraded from 4K display to 8K display, is gradually becoming the development vane of the current display technology.

Small pitch display technology is the key to making this market segmentation with great future possibilities. The current LED display industry has broken through technological innovation and can produce LED displays with pixel pitch less than 10mm. Since its introduction, the small pixel pitch LED video wall has become the most popular display solution in the indoor display market with its advantages of high brightness, high resolution, high gray level and high contrast, widely used in conference rooms, lecture halls, government service centers, etc.

As the size of LEDs gets smaller, the ability to pick up and accurately place it becomes increasingly difficult. The challenges of packaging technology contribute to high cost, making small pixel pitch LED video walls still have a long way to go to achieve mass production. The LED display industry has been looking for newer ways to reduce costs and allow for smaller pixel pitches.

Historically, LEDs were diced from epitaxial wafers, placed in surface-mount packages, wire-bonded at the appropriate location, and encapsulated in epoxy or silicon, which is known as SMD technology. The changes in the way LEDs are packaged can be described as a new packaging technology that packages the LED chip, rather than the LED lamp, directly onto the PCB, known as COB.

In the past few years, SMD and COB technologies have been dominating the small pixel pitch display market. We have also always heard opinions about COB winning over the traditional SMD with various technical advantages. However, to this day we find that the most popular solution for small pixel pitch LED displays represented by P0.9 LED displays is neither SMD nor COB, but IMD.

What is IMD LED Display?

IMD (Integrated Matrix Devices) refers to the packaging of two, four, six or more groups of RGB diodes in a small unit, also known as “N-in-1”. Typical IMD models are generated as 2*2 or 4-in-1 packages, where each 4-in-1 package includes four SMDs and each SMD includes three chips (red, green, and blue).

IMD is an intermediate product between SMD and COB, combining the advantages of both. IMD is a new generation of LED packaging technology that meets the current market demand in terms of both appearance and performance.

Differences between IMD and COB/SMD

Higher reliability and protection performance

LED display screens must be transported over long distances to reach the client, and they will inevitably be bumped during the process of installation to put into use. Therefore, the protection of LED display screens is one of the important factors considered by LED display manufacturers and the rental market. As both IMD and COB are using integrated packaging technology, the hermeticity and reliability have made a qualitative leap compared with the traditional SMD, meeting the requirements of customers at this stage.

Smaller pixel pitch

SMD technology has physical limitations that make it the best solution to produce LED displays with a pixel pitch close to 1.2mm. Further reduction in pixel pitch would result in high costs. IMD technology, on the other hand, can achieve mass production of smaller pixel pitch LED displays, such as P0.8, P0.6, P0.4 LED screens, in a short period of time and at a very low cost.

 More stable color consistency

IMD inherits the long-accumulated sorting technology of SMD, which makes it have good color consistency in display effect compared with current COB, without the problem of poor appearance and lighting uniformity. Although COB has also improved in color consistency, it is not as stable as IMD, and sometimes there are batches of errors. To reduce this risk, COB usually uses fixed chips for chip bonding. However, this approach does not guarantee that the optoelectronic parameters of all LED components are within a reasonable range after repair, which requires engineers to perform point-by-point calibration. As a result, COBs cost more than IMDs to achieve the same level of color consistency.

Lower maintenance costs

Controlling costs to create more value for downstream customers is essential. When a local area of the LED display screen is damaged, LED screen with IMD technology only need to remove a single damaged point for maintenance, while those with COB technology need to remove the entire LED module for maintenance, which undoubtedly increases maintenance costs.

All in all, IMD offers better crash protection and more possibilities for smaller pixel pitches than conventional SMD. Compared with COB, IMD has higher color consistency and lower maintenance cost, especially when only a single diode needs to be repaired. IMD combines the advantages of traditional SMD and COB to properly solve the problems of damage protection, black level consistency, seamless stitching, light leakage, and maintenance. With higher contrast, higher integration, easier maintenance and lower cost, it is the ideal technology for the evolution to finer pitch.

With the above information, you may notice that IMD technology is superior to COB and SMD technology for small pixel pitch LED displays. If you are looking for small pixel pitch LED displays, Mini LED displays, or even Micro LED displays, you can refer to RIGARD’s narrow pixel pitch series. We have a global reputation for gaining significant market share in many types of small pixel LED displays with our mastery of IMD and COB technologies.

Will Cinema LED Screen Replace Projector into The Theaters?

in /by

The majority of current movies are projection-based, i.e., the projector projects the movie content on the curtain or screen. The curtain directly in front of the viewing area, as the internal hardware setting of the cinema, is the most important factor affecting the viewing experience of audiences. In order to provide audiences with high-definition picture quality and a rich viewing experience, the curtain has undergone an upgrade from the initial simple white cloth to an ordinary screen, giant screen, and even dome and ring screen, with a huge change in picture quality, screen size, and form.

However, as the market becomes more demanding in terms of movie experience and picture quality, projectors are gradually showing their downside. Even we have 4K projectors, they are only capable of achieving HD pictures in the center area of the screen but defocus around the edges. In addition, the projector has a low brightness value, which means that only in a completely dark environment can viewers see the movie. What is worse, the low brightness can easily cause discomfort such as dizziness and eye swelling from prolonged viewing. Furthermore, the immersive visual and sound experience is an important measurement factor for movie viewing, but the sound system of the projector is difficult to meet such high requirements, which urges theaters to purchase a separate stereo system. It undoubtedly increases the cost for theaters.

In fact, the inherent flaws of projection technology have never been solved. Even with the support of laser light source technology, it is difficult to meet the audience’s demanding requirements for ever-increasing picture quality, and the pressure of cost has prompted them to seek new breakthroughs. In this case, Samsung launched the world’s first Cinema LED Screen at CinemaCon Film Expo in March 2017, which heralded the birth of the cinema LED screen, whose advantages happen to cover the shortcomings of traditional movie projection methods. Since then, the launch of the cinema LED screen has been considered a new breakthrough for LED screens into the field of film projection technology.

Features of Cinema LED Screen over Projector’s

Cinema LED screen refers to a huge LED screen made of multiple LED modules stitched together combined with driver ICs and controllers to display perfect black levels, intense brightness, and brilliant colors, bringing audiences an unprecedented way to watch digital cinema. Cinema LED screen has surpassed the traditional screen in some aspects since its launch while overcoming its own problems in the process of entering cinema screening, boosting confidence for LED display suppliers.

Combined with the active light-emitting method and the diffuse reflective design of the surface, the cinema LED screen ensures uniform exposure of the screen surface and consistent display of every aspect of the image, which are the advantages that are difficult to counteract with traditional projection methods. Since cinema LED screens do not require a completely darkened room, it opens new doors for theaters, game rooms, or restaurant theaters to further enrich cinema services.

• Stronger Contrast in Color.

Cinema LED screens not only perform better in non-dark rooms but also produce deeper blacks given the active light-emitting method and compatibility with various HDR technologies to create stronger color contrast and richer color rendering. For projectors, on the other hand, the contrast between color pixels and black pixels is not significant as all projectors shine light onto the screen through the lens.

• High Definition Display.

The rapid development of digital film and television has higher requirements for high-definition displays and innovative displays, while the cinema LED screen is just right to meet this demand. Along with the breakthroughs and innovations in small pitch display technology, small pixel pitch LED displays do have the advantage of allowing 4K content or even 8K content to be played. Moreover, their refresh rate is as high as 3840Hz, making it greater to handle every detail of an image than a projector.

• Support 3D Display.

LED display screen supports the presentation of 3D content, allowing users to watch 3D movies with their naked eyes without the need for specialized 3D glasses. With high brightness and industry-leading 3D stereoscopic depth, LED display screens bring visual detail to the forefront. With cinema LED screens, viewers will see fewer motion artifacts and blur but more vivid and realistic 3D movie content, even at high speeds.

• Longer Lifespan.

It goes without saying that LED screens last up to 100,000 hours, three times longer than projectors, which typically last 20-30,000 hours. It effectively reduces the time and cost of subsequent maintenance. In the long run, cinema LED screens are more cost-effective than projectors.

• Easy to Install and Maintain.

The cinema LED wall is made by stitching multiple LED modules together and it supports installation from the front, which makes the cinema LED screen easier to install and maintain. When an LED module is damaged, it can be replaced individually without dismantling the whole LED display to repair.

The Future of Cinema LED Screens

The future development of cinema LED screens does have unlimited prospects, but limited by technical barriers and DCI certification, most LED display manufacturers have failed to enter the cinema market. Nevertheless, XR virtual filming, a hot new market segment in recent years, opens up a new path for LED screen manufacturers to enter the movie market. With the advantages of more HD shooting effects, less post-production, and more virtual scene shooting possibilities than the green screen, virtual production LED wall is favored by directors and has been widely used in film and TV series shooting to replace the green screen. Virtual production LED wall in film and television drama shooting is the application of LED screens in the film industry and facilitates the further promotion of the cinema LED screen.

Moreover, consumers have become accustomed to high resolution, high-quality images and immersive virtual reality on large TVs, and expectations for cinematic visuals are growing. LED display screens that offer 4K resolution, HDR, high brightness levels, and high contrast are the main solution today and in the future.

If you are considering investing in an LED display screen for virtual cinematography, RIGARD’s narrow pixel pitch LED screen is the solution to help you achieve your goal.

Not only is it the world’s largest LED screen, but it is also paired with world-class cutting-edge display technology and broadcast control systems. With 5G+8K+AI technology as the main strategy, Beijing Winter Olympics for the first time used 50fps resolution video elements and the unprecedented 8K Ultra High Definition (UHD) screen to captivate the world with ultra-high definition and smoothness.

In the following section, we will take you through how 8K LED display technology worked to deliver such stunning visual effects to the audience at the Beijing Winter Olympics.

Waterfall

To say that the most Chinese elements of the show in addition to the 24 festivals countdown, it is the waterfall. A drop of ink dispersed in the water transformed into the water of the Yellow River pouring down, and then rolled out a picture of the Chinese waterfall. The LED screen of the waterfall with a total area of 1,200 square meters was seamlessly spliced with the 11,000 square meters of LED floor screens on the main stage at the Winter Olympics. The waterfall then spans over 10,393 square meters of LED display panels that has 8K high-resolution technology, making each water ripple as clear and detailed as possible.

As the tide of the Yellow River recedes and the ink condenses into ice in the air, a giant ice cube rises from the ground. With 3D visual effects, the LED screen of ice cube with 600 square meters slowly rises and the entire space is laser engraved with the locations of previous Winter Olympics to create an immersive visual experience.

Olympic rings break the ice

As the centerpiece of the opening ceremony of Beijing Winter Olympics, the Olympic rings broke the ice and steadily rose to 13 meters in 43 seconds also through a 3D LED display. The inside of the rings consisted of 360° dead-angle-free LED screens that could display any image, while the outermost diffusion panels ensured clear and soft visual effects.

Interactive LED floor screen

Among the most impressive performances at the opening ceremony of the Beijing Winter Olympics were also the instantaneous trajectories left by the skaters on the floor and the real-time presentation of images from the 56 nationalities walking across the floor. These stunning visual effects were achieved by real-time rendering technology. It first obtains real-time position from an artificial intelligence-based motion capture system, then transmits this data to the real-time rendering system, and final effect we see is controlled by the LED control system.

The perfect interactive effect of the floor screen is also attributed to the advanced LED screen that supports 3840Hz ultra-high refresh rate, 100,000:1 ultra-high contrast ratio, and a total resolution of 29,900 x 15096 pixels with an area of over 10,393 square meters.

Giant LED Snowflake

Symbolizing the unity of all athletes, the giant LED snowflake in the center of the stadium was also a highlight of the opening ceremony of the Beijing Winter Olympics. The entire snowflake is made up of more than 550,000 small LED bulbs forming 96 smaller LED snowflakes.

While small pixel pitch LED screens can meet users’ needs for higher definition images, smaller pixel pitches mean more pixel points and higher costs are required. This is undoubtedly a huge gap between small-scale enterprises and innovative content display. However, with the rapid development of LED display technology, P2.5 LED display is becoming a cost-effective option for venues requiring high contrast and close viewing distance because it has the same characteristics as other narrow pixel pitch LED screens but requires less cost.

What is P2.5 LED Panel?

P2.5 LED panel is a type of small pixel pitch LED screen, which refers to a pixel pitch of 2.5mm. Although the pixel pitch of the P2.5 LED panel is larger than that of the P1.25 and P0.9 LED panel, it still provides the same high-definition images in rooms with viewing distances of 3-8 meters, thanks to groundbreaking technological innovations. A control chip built into the small pixel pitch LED screen allows for better and more precise automated control of every detail and color gamut of the image. With the precise factor control of the control chip, P2.5 LED display can provide amazing contrast, high brightness and accurate color performance, making your audience more sensitive to lighter and darker image details and getting a higher quality of visual enjoyment from them.

Moreover, the P2.5 LED panel is also able to display more details of the image without losing the information content, which is mainly shown by the ability to handle 22-bit color depth processing to achieve 64 times grayscale enhancement. Even in low brightness conditions, it can also provide a detailed and vivid image. It is predictable that the P2.5 LED panel will be one of the most effective ways to promote your creative brand.

In addition to presenting higher quality images, the P2.5 LED display has unique product features, making it the best choice for indoor displays.

Top 5 Reasons for You to Choose P1.25 LED Screen Panel

in /by

LED screen panel has become the undisputed primary solution for indoor and outdoor visual display in a wide range of industries due to its stunning visual effects presented and high cost-effectiveness compared to other visual display solutions. However, given the limited viewing distance indoors, flaws in the images displayed on LED screens can easily be magnified. It encourages companies that tend to achieve the greatest results and impress users by presenting creative content through indoor LED screens to give priority to high-definition pictures.

The high-definition picture presented by the LED screen panel is closely related to the pixel pitch of the screen. As we all know, LED display is imaged mainly through the red, green, and blue light-emitting diodes forming a matrix on the PCB panel. The smallest imaging unit on the PCB panel is what we call pixel. While the measure from the midpoint of a single pixel to the midpoint of adjacent pixels is the pixel pitch, expressed in millimeters. LED screen manufacturers divide the LED pixel panel into several models based on the pixel pitch, such as P1.25, P2, P3, P10, P40 LED display, etc., where P (Point) refers to pixel pitch, and P1.25 LED display refers to the LED screen panel with a pixel pitch of 1.25mm. Those screen panels with pixel pitch within 1.25-2.5mm to provide HD images are called narrow pixel pitch LED displays which are the best choice for indoor use.

The smaller the pixel pitch, the higher the pixel density, which means more light beads will act on the panel to image so that you will get a higher resolution LED display screen that can present UHD 4K or even 8k content. Even when sitting very close to the screen panel, it is not easy to spot flaws in the picture. So, if you’re considering buying a small pixel pitch LED display for indoor broadcasting or virtual filming, a P1.25 LED panel for 4k, or even 8k content presentation is your first choice.

In addition to higher resolution and more HD quality, P1.25 LED panels possess other overwhelming advantages to assist you in the terrific content presentation for your audience.

1. High Gray Level

Unlike outdoor displays that require high brightness, indoor displays require low brightness. However, when the brightness of the LED screen panel is reduced, the gray level of the image will also be affected, which in turn affects the overall image quality. However, with a built-in controller chip that generates calibration factors for each gray level in the narrow pixel pitch LED display, the color uniformity of the image displayed by the P1.25 LED display can be significantly improved with almost no loss of grayscale. When the brightness is reduced to 20% or even 15%, the image is still clearly visible.

2. Wider Color Gamut and Stronger Contrast Ratio

To create realistic images that are closer to what the human eye sees, narrow pixel pitch LED displays support HDR and wide color gamut to enhance bright and dark content details to creative levels through intelligent color management. It perfectly matches the color gamut of the source video, eliminating color bias and presenting a wider range of colors and depths. Choosing a P1.25 LED panel with HDR and wide color gamut support for the indoor content display medium means you are available to deliver a more natural and clear image to your audience.

3. Wide Viewing Angle

Considering other factors, it is always difficult to ensure that every viewer can get the best visual enjoyment at an optimal viewing angle. However, small pixel pitch LED displays can cover a 160-degree viewing angle range in both vertical and horizontal directions. When you choose a P1.25 LED panel, your viewers will still have a naturally clear HD image when viewing the screen from any angle.

4. Lower Screen Mortality Rate

In order to cover smaller pixel pitches, COB technology, which packages LED chips rather than LED lights directly onto PCB panels, is applied to the packaging process of small pixel pitch LED displays. Compared with the traditional SDM technology, which uses surface mount technology to package LED products, COB technology possesses better heat dissipation and oxidation resistance. What’s more, COB technology utilizes high standard coating technology to prevent LED screen panels from failing due to water, moisture, and UV damage, thus effectively reducing the mortality of LED screen panels.

5. Efficient Installation and Seamless Stitching

For a comfortable viewing experience and high performance for your business, a small pixel pitch LED display that removes the steel structure and uses a die-cast aluminum case for spliced installation is the best solution. P1.25 LED panels are magnetically bonded to ensure an efficient installation and maintenance process and allow for seamless integration between panels without black lines affecting the overall viewing experience. The installation steps of P1.25 LED panels are easy in described below.

With its overwhelming advantages to liven up your indoor environment by providing a spectacular viewing experience, the indoor HD LED screen is the ideal communication medium for data centers, museums, television studios, banks, command and control centers, and more.
