When it comes to selecting the right LED screen rental product, you have 2 options – modular and mobile.
Modular screens are delivered as individual panels and temporarily built onsite, and mobile screens are already built onto a set of wheels.
Here are 5 reasons why mobile LED screens are taking over the events industry and why you should consider following suit.
Mobility = flexibility
Mobile screens are just that – mobile. If you decide you want to move the screen mid-event, or have it in multiple locations in 1 day, no sweat. Just let your rental provider know and they’ll get it done.
In addition, after its stationed, the screen itself can be easily moved. Hydraulically adjustable screen heights and 360° swivel mounts allow you to capture the audience from the perfect angle every time.
Simplified load-in and strike
Set-up and tear-down can be some of the most hectic times during an event. Multiple vendors, trucks of equipment, and everyone either rushing to get show-ready or to get home as fast as possible.
With a mobile LED screen, all the equipment is on-board, and it is operated by 1 person. Instead of needing trucks of equipment and laborers, mobile screens deploy with 1 truck, 1 trailer, and 1 person. They are typically set up and torn down within 10-20 minutes.
Less labor hours, people, and equipment = one less vendor to worry about during the logistical madness of load-in & strike.
It should come as no surprise that less labor requirements equals a lower rental price tag.
In general, a mobile LED screen is about 20%-40% less expensive to rent than a modular one of the same size & specs.
Some people may prefer the look of modular trussing over a mobile truck or trailer.
But here’s the deal – since mobile screens are supported from the ground by a vertical beam (as opposed to hung from trussing), you have more opportunity to dress them up in a visually appealing way.
Methods of dressing a mobile screen include fencing, draping, and hiding behind structures or landscapes.
Get creative with your mobile rental set-up and all that you will see is an edge-to-edge, seamless display, offering a superior aesthetic over its modular alternative.
Power is included
When you rent a modular screen, you are typically responsible for providing the power.
When you go mobile, the power is onboard, giving you one less thing to worry about and pay for.
THE BOTTOM LINE
Mobile LED screens simplify the rental process by giving you more flexibility at a lower price tag.
Whether you are looking to make the switch to mobile or are a first-time renter, they are worth checking out.
