Is LED renting an LED display right for me?
If you have a budget of at least $4,000, a crowd of 50+ people, and are looking to enhance your event, the answer is yes! The answer may be no if you are hosting a private event on a limited budget, or do not require a display larger than 12’x7′. If this is the case, renting an LED TV or projection screen for cheaper may be your best route
What is your rental cost?
Rental rates start at $4,500 for our 12×7 mobile unit for the first day and are billed by the day not the hour. Whether your one day event is one hour or 12 hours, your rate will be the same. Our second size up mobile screen starts at $6,500, and modular screens can range from $6,000 to $20,000+ in price depending on size and product used. Consecutive days will drop off in pricing as well.
What is included with my rental?
Rental includes an LED technician onsite for the duration of your event to handle everything related to the LED display. Power is also included with our mobile units, and sound is available upon request for no additional charge. Add-ons to your rate include content creation and camera work.
How does your display work?
We use a display software that is ran off of a laptop that feeds to our LED boards. If we are taking in an external feed such as a camera, the input is SDI. The audio input we take is XLR.
How does content creation and deliver work?
We have a dedicated in-house content consultant that will provide you the design specs, collect the content, and review it to make sure it is optimized for the boards. You can learn more at our content creation guide.
What Tech Do I Need to Know?
While you don’t need to know any tech before calling us up, you may want to inform yourself on some basic LED terms that you are sure to hear thrown out there:
Mobile and Modular – A mobile screen is permanently fabricated onto a truck or trailer to allow mobility and speedy setup. Modular LED is custom-built onsite by linking together individual LED tiles, approximately 2’x2′ in size.
Aspect Ratio – Refers to the fraction of screen width divided by screen height. A 16:9 ratio is the standard for video, so when determining a modular size you will want width divided by height to equal close to 1.779 (16/9). Other aspect ratios include 1:1 (square) and 3:4 (portrait)
Pitch/Resolution – Refers to image clarity. In its most basic sense, the lower the pitch the better and the higher the resolution the better. You can learn more about resolution here.
Nits – A Measurement of screen brightness. 4,000+ nits are required for outdoor viewing. We suggest at least 5,000 nits for direct sunlight.
