Thus, we recommend you test it well before time. What integrators do not understand is that digital signage is all about content. The ability to display eye-catching content all the time is what attracts consumers to LED technology.

The versatility of the content allows displays to overcome distortion that is a result of unfavorable lighting and low grayscale among other issues.
As a result, you need to ensure that your content’s links are working and you incorporate the dynamic peaking technology.
Incorporating technology will help, however, do remember that it is technology in the end and it has the capacity to fail. Therefore, you need to ensure that media player along with other LED components does not fail after a few days of installation.

Inspect the site beforehand

Inspecting the site will give you an idea regarding how you will place the LED screen, what are the lighting conditions and what angles should you be using. In addition, it will provide you with information regarding the wall material, the cable strength, electrical supply, and other similar factors.
If the place you are planning to install the LED screen is a new building or space, you should run the internet and electricity test beforehand. Ensure that both things run smoothly and there are no hurdles. Also, check if the required number of outlets is what you need. In case, you need more get them installed before bringing the
LED screen to your place.

Foot traffic

While you are inspecting the site for physical attributes, also check out the for the amount of traffic that the site has. It is not worth the money and effort to install an LED display where there is limited traffic.
Make sure that the place where you install LED display has moderate traffic, if not high. Although, places with high traffic are ideal for digital signage.

Color management

The modern LED displays are a better version of their predecessor LCDs. They offer a wider range of colors, extended depth of shades and have the ability to bring out the best in the content.
Despite so many technological advancements, we still have LEDs that are still having problems when it comes to executing against the wider gamut. This can lead to bad reception. The skin color on these digital display tends to appear reddish instead of the usual color.

How to avoid reddish skin color

In order to avoid the above problem, we recommend you to opt for am LED display that has a good color management feature.
An up to date color management system have the ability to maintain consistent RGB gradation. Their algorithm is specialized to display colors with great precision. They can perform exceptionally well despite having a low grayscale level. Doing this will eliminate the reddish skin color issues as well.

To ensure that you do not miss out anything, we recommend that you make a checklist of the tools you plan to take with. This way, you will not forget anything even if you are in a hurry. You will not miss out on the commonly misplaced tools such as the screwdrivers, tape measures, or drill bites.
In case, you have already staged the hardware elsewhere, make sure you do not miss out any parts. Repack everything and bring it with you on the site.
Generally, people miss out in things like visa brackets that go on the back of the LED screen, or other special tools that are required for the fitting of an LED display.

Scene adaptive HDR

An effective LED display should broadcast content with consistency. However, this can be difficult especially due to the variation in brightness and grayscale levels.

During the evaluation process, we recommend that you use the adaptive HDR technology as it has the ability to offer ongoing uniformity by finding and adjusting discrepancies.
The amazing feature reaches peak brightness while maintaining universal contrast and for this effective results it depends on numerous components.

The inverse tone mapping algorithm

The specially designed algorithms have the capability to accommodate not only the content’s brightness but also refine the contents contrast according to the display’s size.

In addition, this technology has an amazing and outstanding defense feature. The technology has the capability to ensure that the change in the brightness level of the screen can be scaled to the viewer’s eyes. This ensures that everyone is able to fully enjoy the LEDs content. Sometimes the viewer’s eye struggles to read the content when it reaches its peak brightness. The audience might find it difficult to see content with additional grey and white.
However, with this technology, it will not be an issue anymore. The anti-dazzling feature increases the brightness in the target area and at the same time, it also reduces brightness in other areas. This thus delivers an engaging and better viewing experience.

Electrics charged and packed

To ensure that everything goes smoothly on the final install day, every display is taken out and test well before time. This is a blessing as well as a curse. A well tested LED screen will save you the hassle of testing it on the final day, however, at the same time there is a high possibility that you might miss out in some cords or small parts of the screen.
Therefore, before heading to the site ensure that you have all the parts you need. Double check the primary power cord, the secondary power adapters, the VGA cable, DP port cable, HDMI cable or any other similar cable. If there is a remote with the digital screen, make sure you bring it with you. It will really make things easier. Lastly, ensure you have all the tools that will charge the batteries.

Be precise

It is important to measure and level to the best of your abilities. You would not like to end up with several holes in the wall to get the right one. Besides giving an unprofessional look, it also damages the wall.
Use the correct tools, for instance, the size of your drill but should be according to the size of your wall dry anchors. After all, you would not want the holes in the wall or too big for your dry anchors or vice versa.

Expect the unexpected
