The immersive experience has been gaining popularity in recent years, gradually emerging across various industries. The immersive experience is a positive and impactful psychological experience that provides individuals with immense pleasure and awe while engaging in an activity, preventing them from feeling bored even after repeated participation. For instance, emerging technologies like VR utilize sensory and cognitive experiences to create an atmosphere that allows participants to fully enjoy and feel as if they are in a virtual world.
As for LED display screens, they represent a significant advancement in the digital signage industry, boasting high brightness, vibrant colors, and seamless integration, making them an ideal choice for creating captivating immersive visual experiences. By integrating content with naked-eye 3D, virtual reality (VR), and augmented reality (AR) technologies, LED display screens can create the most realistic experiences in various environments, including entertainment venues, museums, retail spaces, and corporate settings.
In this article, we will explore how LED displays can deliver optimal results in immersive settings and the key factors to consider when using them to create impactful experiences.
What is Immersive LED Display?
An immersive LED display is a large screen made up of multiple LED modules arranged in a grid pattern. It uses ambiance, lighting, sound effects, and performance to put the audience in a state of total absorption, completely immersing them in the scene in front of them. Each LED module can emit specific colors of light, such as red, green, or blue (RGB), allowing for a full range of colors and a wider color gamut than other display technologies. Immersive LED displays use a video processor to send signals to each LED module, controlling the brightness and color reproduction of the video image and synchronizing the display with the original video.
The LED dome at the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco is an incredible example of the practical application of immersive LED technology. It is one of the largest all-digital planetariums in the world and proves that integrated immersive LED display technology has no limits.
What are the Advantages of LED Displays for Immersive Exhibits?
We perceive the world through our bodies, and immersive atmospheres transform our bodies into sensory systems, engaging our visual, auditory, olfactory, gustatory, and tactile senses to achieve interactive experiences on behavioral and emotional levels. As the primary visual medium, LED display screens, with their high definition, interactivity, large screens, and flexibility, allow visitors to immerse themselves in the scene, achieving full immersion, emotional engagement, and a completely new experience for display spaces.
- High-Definition Display
In immersive LED display applications, viewers are very close to the display screens, requiring high refresh rates and resolutions to meet their needs. LED display screens are equipped with high-quality driver ICs, achieving refresh rates of over 3840Hz. With their lifelike ultra-high-definition effects, LED displays reconstruct the relationship between exhibition content and display space, becoming the mainstream choice for diverse immersive experiences. They are favored by exhibition spaces, museums, convention centers, and businesses, bringing new possibilities to cultural and tourism exhibitions.
- High Interactivity
Immersive scenes enhanced by LED displays break the “fifth wall” between the stage and the audience, allowing everything to happen around the audience. Viewers can interact with the screen in real-time, making the visuals more vivid and enhancing the immersive experience. In immersive environments, imagined scenes come to life, allowing interaction through sight, touch, smell, and sound, showcasing the charm of LED display screens in immersive settings.
- Large-Screen Display
Immersive spaces require wide viewing angles and large, high-definition screens to help audiences feel fully immersed. A key feature of LED display screens is their modular design, allowing for flexible assembly to create large screens, expanding visual space, and achieving better immersion. Therefore, the modular design of LED displays meets the requirements of immersive spatial architecture.
- High Flexibility
Flexible LED displays, with their high flexibility, are essential for creating immersive LED video walls. They can be assembled into various unique shapes based on the environment, creating three-dimensional spaces and naked-eye 3D effects. They can also be combined with interactive effects to blend motion and stillness, creating striking immersive scenes.
What Types of LED Displays Are Popular in Immersive Settings?
Without a doubt, almost all types of LED display screens can meet the demands of immersive settings and play a significant role. Flexible LED screens, transparent LED screens, interactive LED floor screens, and others are becoming the stars of various immersive settings, thanks to their high brightness and colorful display effects, as well as innovative technological developments.
- Flexible LED Screens
In the experience of the five senses, vision is the key to determining the immersive experience. Enhancing visual immersion to bring a more realistic experience to virtual spaces is at the core of current human-computer interface development. The immersive experience brought by flexible LED screens can be quantified by calculating the “immersion coefficient”. The human eye’s field of view in the real world is fixed, at approximately 160 degrees horizontally and 135 degrees vertically, accounting for 1/6 of the 360-degree omnidirectional field of view in a three-dimensional space. When the immersion factor exceeds 0.3, it can present a highly immersive display. The high immersion of flexible LED screens can provide complete visual coverage, creating a better immersive experience and making the metaverse world more convincing.
- Transparent LED Screens
Transparent LED screens allow viewers to see content from one side or through the screen to the content on the other side. Providing a seamless experience through realistic 3D image display, transparent LED screens are one of the most effective immersive display setups. For example, in the immersive exhibition hall of the Yunnan Archaeological Experience Museum in China, six transparent LED screens can present different content based on the overall changes in the immersive exhibition hall. LED floor screens feature surprises such as fireflies gathering and butterflies flying. At the junction of the LED large screen and the floor screen, stars and fireflies converge. Viewers immersed in this environment can experience scenes of ancient prosperity and the lives of early inhabitants.
- Interactive LED Screens
Interactive LED screens are essential display devices for immersive experiences, allowing viewers to interact with screen content using touch, motion, or other input forms. Interactive LED displays typically have sensors and tracking technology to detect and respond to your input in real-time. For example, the world’s first original theater-style interactive art exhibition “Tracing the Classic of Mountains and Seas” premiered at the 0101PARK in Wensan Digital Life Street in Hangzhou, China. This light and shadow art exhibition uses LED display screens and projection technology as carriers, integrating 360-degree fully immersive digital content presentation, naked-eye 3D giant screens, 5G interaction, aroma devices, and other cutting-edge technologies to create a 360-degree multi-sensory immersive light and shadow space, fully replicating the world of the “Classic of Mountains and Seas”.
Can LED Displays Enhance Immersive Experiences?
LED displays provide a more immersive experience in traditional exhibition spaces, not only meeting the needs of visitors at a higher level but also engaging their perceptual systems, providing sensory enjoyment, and infusing the exhibition hall with a sense of technology and vitality. This allows every visitor to have a wonderful experience, even amid the deluge of information.
In today’s rapidly advancing technological landscape, the immersive display industry is poised for robust growth in response to diverse demands. Future immersive exhibition halls will incorporate advanced technologies such as holographic interactive projection, immersive projection systems, AR (augmented reality), and VR (virtual reality). By integrating sound, light, electricity, projection, images, text, and interactive videos, these exhibitions will provide visitors with an immersive experience while gaining a deep understanding of the theme and essence of the entire exhibition hall. LED displays will play a pivotal role in modernizing and informatizing the exhibition hall, achieving better communication effects than traditional static and one-way display methods.
