Learn More About School Sign Technology
A school sign LED display is a video display which uses light-emitting diodes. A LED panel is a small display, or a component of a larger display. They are typically used outdoors in store signs and billboards, and in recent years have also become commonly used in destination signs on public transport vehicles. LED panels are sometimes used as form of lighting, for the purpose of general illumination, task lighting, or even stage lighting rather than display.

What is a Pixel?
A pixel is a cluster of 1 or more LED’s. Monochrome and Grayscale LED school sign pixels have 1 or more LED’s of either red or amber while full color pixels feature red, green and blue LED’s. More LED’s per pixel will produce higher quality pictures, animations and text.
What is Pitch?
The pitch of an LED school sign is the distance between each pixel. If the specifications of the school sign you are buying state that the pitch (or resolution) is 20mm – this means there are twenty millimeters from the center of one pixel to the next.
What is Matrix?
An LED display’s matrix represents how many pixels on the display. A display with a matrix resolution of 32 (h) by 128 (w) means it has 32 pixels from top to bottom and 128 from left to right.
What is the Viewing Angle?
A school sign viewing angle dictates the signs ability to been viewed from to the extreme left and right of the school sign. The content on an LED school sign with a poor viewing angle (70 degrees) will disappear sooner as you pass the sign.
