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.
Why LED Video Display is the Best Display Choice for Featuring Your Product or Service
Signage is an important investment. You need something that says “Hey we’re here!” while remaining attractive and approachable. Traditional static signage is great, but limited. A set-it-and-forget-it signage solution isn’t effective in our ever evolving fast-paced on demand culture. Businesses need to move quickly. The last thing a company needs is to have a great new product or service, but be held up while waiting for new signage to come in that features said new product or service. If a picture is worth a thousand words, a video or motion graphic is worth a million. According to a report published by Reuters, digital signage is projected to be upwards of a 31 billion dollar industry by 2023. With the world moving to more dynamic ads, now is the time to invest in digital signage.
Deciding to invest in digital signage is one thing. Choosing which digital signage display to invest in is another process altogether. Should you go with the more traditional LCD screen or tiled LCD wall? Is LED worth the investment? What size and display options are available?
Advances in LED Video Display technology are simultaneously driving down prices while maintaining or even increasing display quality. Although LCD is still generally cheaper than LED, LED is a better investment in terms of display options and image quality.
More Display Options
LED is modular by nature. Squares, rectangles, abstract shapes, and even 3-dimensional shapes are possible with LED. A variety of IP rating options allow for outdoor LED digital signage. If none of the current module sizes are sufficient to meet a customer’s needs, custom LED options are available. LED is truly versatile and can be integrated into an endless number of environments.
LCD by contrast is very limited. Generally, with LCD you are confined to a certain aspect ratio and limited screen sizes. If a bigger LCD screen is desired, the LCD screens need to be tiled. Because the LCD screens are limited by size and dimension options, tiled LCD is also limited by size and dimension.
Tiling LCD screens creates seams or bezels that can distract from the overall message. Some LCD display companies have tried to reduce this effect by making the bezels smaller, but the eye can be diverted by even a small crack or gap in content. Additionally, these bezels can interfere with content and message. Imagine a seam cutting through the face of a model or text with awkward spacing because the bezel hadn’t been accounted for during content creation. Not only are seams unattractive, but they have been known to complicate content creation. The modular nature of LED allows LED video displays to be seamless regardless of display size.
Better Display Quality
LCD is a tried and true technology that works great - inside a home with limited ambient lighting. Lighting conditions can be highly variable in the real world. A video display should look great regardless of time of day, time of year, or lighting conditions. Such reliability isn’t possible with a LCD screen.
Direct view LED is the perfect technology to display reliable stunning glare-free output. Don’t make customers squint to see the screen. By the time the customer has discerned what is behind the glare on an LCD screen, something or someone else may have caught their attention. Worse yet, a customer may not even try to decipher what is behind the screen's glare.
Advances in LED display have allowed for tighter pixel pitch. Tighter pixel pitch translates into higher resolution. Modern LED Video Display can display even high-defintion images and video flawlessly.

Pitfalls To Avoid When Buying A LED Screen
Considering Renting/Purchasing A LED Video Wall?
Go for it. As with other digital technologies, LED video wall technology continues to grow more impressive as costs become less intimidating. LED video walls are engaging, dynamic, and versatile. Read Seamless LED Displays Offer Many Advantages Over Older Technology to learn just how a LED video wall can give you the "wow" factor you are looking for.
As you get ready to embark on your LED journey, we suggest you be on the alert for 3 common pitfalls. We suggest you buy the product you need, not the buzz. Look for a LED partner, not a LED supplier. Buy for the future, not just for today.
Don’t Buy The Buzz | Buy A Solution
Trade shows are fun, sales pitches are nice, and new products are exciting. While Neoti always works to stay on the forefront of technology, we encourage you to buy the product that is right for you and your situation. Just because the biggest and best is available, doesn’t mean it fits your situation. If your audience is going to be several feet away, then going too fine with your pixel pitch may not be necessary. Content also plays a role in selecting the ideal LED video wall solution. If high quality videos are going to be displayed on your LED video board, UHD will deliver exceptional quality. If the LED Video Board is going to exclusively display simple logos or large numbers/text, a lower resolution screen may fit the bill just fine. Pick the LED solution that is right for your space, your needs, and your content.
Don’t Look For A Supplier | Look For A Partner
Buying a LED video wall is more than just buying LED panels. Installation and rigging must be considered. Quality of the LED video display panel itself is important. Does the company you’re buying from pay close attention to quality and control? Will they be there before, during, and after the project? At Neoti, we are involved in the manufacturing at a component level taking great care in quality and control for every step of the process.
We don't stop at exceptional products. At Neoti we pride ourselves on responsiveness to our customers' needs. We work to find the solution that is best for the customer from manufacturing through installation and beyond. Do you have a preferred integrator? Great. Do you need Neoti to do all of the planning and installing? Awesome. Neoti is happy to help. Our goal isn't to just make a sale, Neoti strives to be a trustworthy longterm LED partner.
Don’t Buy LED For Today | Buy A Lasting LED Solution
A quality LED screen generally holds up reliably over time, but even with the best screens and the best environments the unexpected can occur. Often, with our competitors people have to send broken LED panels overseas and wait for months to have product returned to them. At Neoti, we seek to do better than that. We have a centrally based US Service & Repair center. Frequently customers can ship broken LED products to us, we can repair them, and the panels can be shipped back in a matter of weeks - not months. Neoti can also travel to your location (within the continental US) or even troubleshoot with your tech professionals via phone. Not only does Neoti service and repair all Neoti brand products, but we service products from other major manufacturers as well.

3 ways Neoti works to make the LED video display installation process easier is by letting the customer choose their service level, working tirelessly to reduce lead time, and by considering the longevity of both products and processes.
Neoti Lets the Customer Choose The Service Level
Neoti does not offer a one-size-fits-all solution. Every customer is different. Every install is different. Every LED solution is different.
These differences is why Neoti chooses to base the service level on the customer. There are some customers who just need the LED panels. Other customers need Neoti to provide rigging, install, and maintenance. Some customers request basic maintenance training. All of these customers are valuable and Neoti works to provide the appropriate solution for each customer.
Neoti Works Tirelessly to Reduce Lead Time
Neoti knows that customers don't want to wait forever for a LED screen. Neoti has always worked to keep lead times low. Recently Neoti signed a Distribution Partnership with Starin allowing Neoti to maintain even more readily available inventory in even more locations across the US. When a company places an order, they may not even have to wait for that inventory to come in. If it is already available, Neoti can skip that step and jump straight to planning and managing the install.
Neoti Is Designed For Longevity
Neoti is not a set-it-and-forget-it kind of company. Neoti is involved in the manufacturing process on a component level, ensuring the quality of every product. A lot of care and quality control goes into every item in inventory.
Neoti has a selection of Service Level Agreements, allowing the customer to choose how much support is needed in the maintenance of their LED display.
If the unexpected happens down the road and LED screens become damaged, Neoti has a US based repair center that can get the LED video display up and running again in a short amount of time. Neoti even repairs competitor LED screens.
Whether it's for an experience AV integrator or LED newbie, every project is different. Neoti is here to help.
