LED Walls: As Costs Drop, Many Churches Look to Such Systems

One of the beautiful things about an LED video wall system is modularity. The capability to configure the panels in virtually any setup is very attractive to designers for creative elements.

By comparison, if you had a 2.8mm pixel pitch panel instead being viewed by that same audience member, it will probably feel to them as if they are watching an LED TV in their living room at home. The image quality will be very high.

With the wide variety of LED wall panels available with extremely low pixel pitches, there is some important math to be used to calculate what the best pitch is for your needs. You don’t want to buy more pixel pitch than necessary, otherwise, you would unnecessarily be wasting money. And of course, you don’t want to come in under pitch as well.

In addition, maintenance is also a key factor to account for. LED panels are very low effort, when it comes to maintenance, whereas projection tends to have a much higher maintenance schedule. I usually say it like this, LED has a higher up-front cost, but has a diminishing cost of ownership the longer you own it.

Initial investment in projection may be only slightly lower (depending on projector size vs. LED panel count) and it will have an increasing cost of ownership over the life cycle of the product. Ongoing care, cleaning, lamp replacements, etc. all will cost time and money. And while LED systems are not without required care, it is certainly significantly less than compared to projection.

These are just a few considerations when thinking about an LED video panel system for your ministry, but some we consider very important to look at.
