Advantages Of Seamless Curved LED Display
Display technology has evolved well past the bulky monochromatic displays of the early 20th century. Screens have improved dramatically in terms of color range and resolution while becoming sleeker and more compact. Modular LED technology makes video display available in any size from small enough to fit inside a trade show booth to large enough to scale the side of a building.
One thing that has stayed relatively consistent is the shape of display technology. Screens predominately remain flat and rectangular. Fairly recently, curved video walls became possible. Thanks to LED, these curved video displays can be seamless.
Seamless curved LED video walls come with several advantages including the ability to create a sense of depth and the capacity to adapt to various environments.
Curved Video Displays Create A Sense Of Depth
Curved LED has the ability to create an enhanced feeling of depth. Imagine a concave display. The viewer can step into the display and the video wall literally surrounds them taking advantage of the viewer’s peripheral vision creating a more immersive experience. A convex display can encourage the viewer to travel around the display in order to view the whole video. The modern audience may enjoy their screens, but that doesn’t mean you should completely discount the physical experience. Appeal to your customers in a way that engages their audio and visual senses as well as their physical sense of space.
So far we have discussed curved screens that engage audiences in a physical space, but what about screens that appear on camera? More and more TV studio set designs are using curved screens to create an appealing atmosphere. Curved screens can curve toward the talent, visually placing emphasis on the importance of the speaker.
Curvable Video Displays Are Adaptable To Their Environment
Seamless curved LED screens can be built around columns, into organic flowing architecture, into desks, signage, or studio backdrops. There is no need to limit yourself to boxy layouts and straight lines. LED screens have grown thinner and more versatile. Custom LED solutions can be built to fit any space. With such a versatile display option, application is only limited by the designer’s or organization’s imagination.
LED can output high quality video even flat, curved, or custom applications. Check out our curvable UHD LED series built to look great on or off camera.
Upgrade to Curved LED
If you are still trying to decide whether to go LED or LCD for your large format video walls read this article. If you have decided on LED, take the time to consider curved LED.
Live Broadcast LED Video Display
Video displays have become the norm in broadcast studio design. With seamless video walls, curved panels, 3D designs, and a host of other choices and specifications available, a broadcast display is only limited by imagination. Choosing the right broadcast display requires consideration of aesthetic appeal, technical factors, and product longevity.
A display should complement and enhance its setting. The appearance of a video wall is more than just what graphics pop up on the screen. Video displays must have superior image quality and integrate seamlessly into their environment.
LED Screens Outperform Their LCD Counterparts: Advantages of LED panels over LCD screens include truer black levels, glare free display, and bezel free surfaces. Furthermore, the pixel pitch of LED screens have improved so much that ultra high definition is not only possible with LED - it is also more affordable. Similar to other technologies, the cost of LED has gone down over time while quality has improved.
LED Video Displays Integrate Seamlessly Into A Broadcast Studio: Due to the modular nature of LED video wall panels, video display screens can be made to fit any space. Video display screens aren't standalone products. Rigging is naturally involved as well. Neoti offers UHD LED video panels that can be mounted directly against a wall eliminating concerns about the appearance of rigging. If mounting against a wall isn't optimal, Neoti offers a variety of clean professional rigging options. The Neoti team can even create custom rigging solutions for unconventional spaces.
Aesthetics are all well and good, but without supporting technology to make the display work, the point is moot. When buying an LED video wall it is important to consider screen resolution, refresh rate, and integration.
Screen Resolution: LED screens have come a long way. Fine pixel pitch allows for HD, UHD, and even 4K screens and beyond. Neoti offers UHD panels built specifically for the broadcast industry.
Refresh Rate: Quick refresh rates are critical to ensure smooth transitions and quality viewing. Lag time is disruptive to the viewing experience and distracts from the message. A camera crew only gets one shot to record a live broadcast.
Integration: Studios vary greatly in display needs, studio layout, and existing technology. Neoti works with the studio to understand the studio's unique needs. Neoti offers full service LED solutions handling everything from design to rigging to full installation. If the customer doesn't need the full package, Neoti is happy to work with the customer to ensure their needs are satisfied in a way that is as efficient and beneficial to the customer. Neoti seeks to be a LED resource regardless of the customer's needs or experience.
A video display wall is a significant investment. Neoti works to ensure that every Neoti LED video display looks great the day it is installed and for a long time to come.
Training: As with any piece of technology, proper maintenance is essential for longevity. Neoti can do onsite training for the customer's AV, technical, or maintenance crew, educating them on the proper way to perform regular LED maintenance.
Responsive Support: Neoti is an American based LED company with a team dedicated to quality service. Neoti is very responsive to customers' needs. Often technical support can be accomplished over the phone, greatly reducing downtime and hassle. If phone support is not enough, Neoti is not afraid to travel. Neoti regularly travels across the continental United States.
US Based Repair Center: LED walls are both sturdy and reliable, but sometimes accidents happen. Neoti's US based repair center is the perfect solution for the unexpected. Frequently, with other LED companies, repairs have to be sent overseas and can take months to be fixed and shipped back. Neoti's centrally based US location and dedicated staff greatly reduces repair time. Neoti even services the LED panels of all major competitors.

Choose A LED Studio Backdrop That Supports Your Talent
Get Ready For Your Close Up
When incorporating an LED Video Display into a studio set design, it is important to think of more than just what looks good in a static environment. Studio backdrops have to hold up in live broadcast situations to communicate clearly, and support the talent.
Choose An LED Video Display That Supports The Talent
For LED Video Displays that appear on camera, one of the first considerations should be refresh rate. The refresh rate measures the number of times a second the display hardware draws data. Because the LED screen will be on camera, a quick refresh rate is necessary to avoid lag time. Lag time is disastrous in the world of live TV. You don't get a second chance to record live TV - but a poor recording can be replayed indefinitely.
One of the many benefits of LED Video Display over LCD Video Display, is bezel free design. Bezels are detrimental to your broadcast studio in two ways. First, you have to more closely monitor the content going on the wall behind the talent. If your talent is highlighting a prominent figure, you don't want said prominent figure to have a line down his or her face. Not only people, but text is especially difficult with bezels. The second way that bezels are detrimental to your broadcast studio is that they aren't always flattering for your talent. Do you really want a bezel to protrude from the top of your talent's head? Do yourself and your talent a favor - choose a bezel free design.
An additional benefit of LED Video Display is the elimination of glare. Because LED Video Displays don't have reflective properties, there will never be glare or awkward reflection coming from behind the news desk. This lack of glare helps keep the attention where it should be - the talent.

Custom LED Solutions for Broadcast: Ensure Your Video Wall Displays Are Ready For Prime Time
LED Video Displays are now the norm for backgrounds on news, entertainment, and various other types of programming. Millions of viewers tune in each day with an expectation of pristine image quality. The LED Video Display must perform flawlessly for the imagery to work.
At first glance a Broadcast LED Video Display may look like any other LED Video Display, but this is simply not the case. The primary differentiating factor: a LED Video Display in a consumer environment is setup for in-person viewing, while broadcast LED Video Displays are designed to look optimal on camera.
Important Features for Broadcast LED Video Displays
Quick Refresh Rates
Any lag time could distract a viewer from the message of the broadcast. It is important that the refresh rate is high enough to create smooth transitions, display quality videos, and consistently provide clear information.
Dual Power Source
Our premium Broadcast ready LED Video Display Panels have an optional dual power source. In the event one power source goes out during a broadcast, the other power source can kick in and maintain a steady stream until the broadcast is over. Once the broadcast is complete a set technician can address the failed power source. All the while the viewing audience is none the wiser.
Tight Pixel Pitch
Pixel pitch determines resolution and is critical to on-screen displays. The tighter the camera shot, the tighter the pixel pitch needs to be to avoid any adverse effects. Therefore, when developing an on-air LED Video Display solution, consideration of pixel pitch is essential.
Fitting the Physical Space
Another important consideration for LED Video Display is how well will the LED Video Display fit into the allotted space. Are curved or flat screens preferable? Perhaps a combination of both? The modular nature of LED Video Display allows for custom sizing of Video Wall Solutions.
A seamless, bezel-less design is a major advantage of a LED Video Display. Imagine a person's face split in half due to an inconveniently placed bezel, or text that seems to drop off before continuing. Broadcast is all about conveying a message. Let nothing distract from that.
Trusted Service & Repair
At our US based service center we service all of our own products as well as products from major LED manufacturers. Neoti certified technicians repair or replace diodes, modules, shaders, receiving cards, hub boards, power supplies, and more. Affordable service contracts are available, or repairs can be completed as needed.
Beware of One Size Fits All LED Options
There are thousands of LED providers in the US; however, not all of them understand the distinct challenges and applications of broadcast LED Video Display. A vendor may offer the latest in LED technology, yet may not have the capacity or capability to design a custom broadcast solution. Using a vendor with inadequate or non-existent customization skills to create a LED Video Display that doesn’t translate on air can be a source of frustration for studios and audiences alike.
