Outdoor LED Screens
Each cluster on an LED screen has a red, green and blue LED, which light up accordingly to create the correct colour. If you look very closely at your television set then you can see individual pixels. If you look very closely at an LED screen, all you see is lots of very bright little lights, because the pixels are much bigger, but when you get further away the picture becomes clearer.
Resolution capability / Viewing distance
Pixel pitch is a term used when describing how far apart the LED clusters (pixels) are from each other. Meaning the closer the pixels are to each other, the closer the viewing distance becomes before it becomes pixelated. But due to working with unique LED technology of “virtual pixels” which very cleverly shares LEDs between pixels, making the optical resolution twice as high as the physical resolution. For example LED screens using this technology often give out specifications saying the actual pitch is 14mm and the virtual pitch is 7mm.
For most outdoor LED screens their pixel pitch is generally around the 20mm mark, which is suitable for most outdoor events because audiences are at least 5m away from the screens. Pixel pitch becomes very important when it comes to indoor screens, as audiences are generally closer. This is where high resolution screens are preferred because the viewing distances are minimal, due to having a 4-mm pixel pitch.

Outdoor Equipment is classified as to how much weather and water it can handle by an IP rating.
The numbers that follow IP each have a specific meaning. The first indicates the degree of protection (of people) from moving parts, as well as the protection of enclosed equipment from foreign bodies. The second defines the protection level that the enclosure enjoys from various forms of moisture (drips, sprays, submersion etc). The tables below should help make sense of it:
|IP Rated Enclosures – quick find chart|
|A number replaced by x indicates that the enclosure is not rated for that spec.|
|First Digit (intrusion protection)|
|0||No special protection|
|1||Protection from a large part of the body such as a hand (but no protection from deliberate access); from solid objects greater than 50mm in diameter.|
|2||Protection against fingers or other object not greater than 80mm in length and 12mm in diameter.|
|3||Protection from entry by tools, wires etc, with a diameter of 2.5 mm or more.|
|4||Protection against solid bodies larger than 1mm (eg fine tools/small etc).|
|5||Protected against dust that may harm equipment.|
|6||Totally dust tight.|
|Second Digit (moisture protection)|
|1||Protection against condensation.|
|2||Protection against water droplets deflected up to 15° from vertical|
|3||Protected against spray up to 60° from vertical.|
|4||Protected against water spray from all directions.|
|5||Protection against low pressure water jets (all directions)|
|6||Protection against string water jets and waves.|
|7||Protected against temporary immersion.|
|8||Protected against prolonged effects of immersion under pressure.|
