Get Ready For Your Close Up
When incorporating an LED video wall 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 in a way that communicates clearly and supports the talent.
Choose A Video Wall That Supports The Talent
For LED video walls 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 disasterous 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 over LCD is the 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 is the elimination of glare. Because LED does not have reflective properties, there will never be glare or awkward reflections from the video wall display. This lack of glare helps keep the attention where it should be - the talent.
