If you just want to learn more about how LED billboards work in advertising, we have put together some information based on our 25+ years of service in the industry.Before we dive in, let us go over some basic information for those needing background details. 


What Exactly Are LED Billboards?

LED Billboards, also known as Digital Billboards, are digital displays made up of tiny lights called Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs). These tiny diodes come in three colors—red, green, and blue (RGB)—and work together to form a pixel.

There are two main types of LED modules.

  1. DIP LED Display Modules.
  2. SMD LED Display Modules.

Generally speaking, DIP LED Display Modules are used outdoors, and SMD LED Display Modules are used indoors, however technology has improved over the years where SMD is now bright enough to be a great outdoor solution as well. Anything 16mm and greater will be DIP and anything below 16mm will be SMD.

Since LED billboards work in both environments, they make a flexible and excellent signage solution.


A Basic Summary Of How LED Billboards Work

Amazingly, a nearly endless number of colors can be created just by changing the intensity of the individual color diodes, resulting in the classic, eye-popping look that you see in LEDs.

And that is pretty much the cornerstone of how they work.

Everything you see advertised on LED billboards operates off this principle of color mixing.

The Implications

It naturally follows that LED billboards utilize this technology to create large advertising displays. Of course, the technology itself is quite complex, even though the basics are simple.

LED Billboard Programming and Scheduling

Programming an image or video onto an LED billboard is the next step once you have received your LED billboard and created your advertisement. Digital LED billboards use software to adjust their displays and determine advertisement run times.

During the programming process, you get to pick whether you want the screen to be synchronized to an input source or sent to a control card. Changes can be made using the modem connected to the billboard.


LED Billboard Maintenance and Aftercare Service 

Installing your LED billboard is not the final phase of the project. Natural wear and tear will definitely impact the quality of your LED billboard, and you will want to make sure it does not sustain significant damage over time.
