LED Sign Technology

What are LED’s?

A light-emitting diode (LED) is a semiconductor light source.  Introduced as a practical electronic component in 1962,early LEDs emitted low-intensity red light, but modern versions are available across the visible, ultaviolet, and infrared wavelengths, with very high brightness. LEDs present many advantages over incandescent light sources including lower energy consumption, longer lifetime, smaller size, and faster switching.

An example of the many different types of LED’s.

So, how how does a LED sign work?

When Red, Green, and Blue (RGB) LEDs are assembled and pieced together, a Pixel is formed on the Display. Any combination of billions of colors can be generated by our LED displays by different combinations of Red, Green, and Blue light. Our LED displays use a technology known as Pixel Sharing, In this process the LED contoller is capable of creating a “virtual” pixel, doubling the resolution of the display to create beautiful presentations with your message center.

What is a Pixel?

Pixel is short for picture element. It is described as: Any of a number of very small picture elements that make up a picture, as on a visual display unit

But a pixel isn’t really anything. It is not like an inch or a gram or any real way of measuring something. It is just a way of breaking down a picture into the smallest piece. So the more pixels you can get on a screen the higher the resolution! That is why we stand behind our virtual 10mm Pixel technology, because we are able to provide you with the very best LED pixel technology available.

Should I be worried about the life expectancy of my LED sign?

LEDs have an average life span of 100,000 hours or 11+ years.  With that assurance and the quality manufacturing capabilities at Sparkle Sign Co. we can provide you with a product that will Increase business appeal for years to come.

What is a module?

An LED module is the part that forms the building block of all of our displays. By combining the Red, Green, and Blue LED technology we talked about above, we are able to make full video capable screens to practically any size using this module technology.
