Jumbotron vs LED screen panels

A Jumbotron is widely known as a giant screen typically used in large venues such as stadiums and arenas.
Think of it as a TV screen, but hundreds of times bigger.

Used for close-up shots, player profiles, and crowd entertainment, it’s now an integral part of sporting events. But despite its popularity for displaying images of large events without projection, LED video walls have been replacing conventional Jumbotron screens, primarily because of the inferior image resolution.

This technology is also lighter and smaller than the Jumbotron, but there are more benefits:

  • More cost-effective and environmentally friendly, saving about 40% of energy.
  • Mercury-free technology that does not pollute the environment.
  • LED panels are adaptable, and can customize and personalize content for different uses and situations.
  • Superior image quality with sharper contrast and a wider color palette.

Replacing old Jumbotron with Big LED screens

LED screens have already replaced modern Jumbotrons. However, if we compare the original Jumbotron with the modern LED wall, we can see the following major differences between them:

Traditional Jumbotron screens are being replaced by LED screen panels, primarily because their image resolution is not the best, despite their widespread use in displaying images of large events without projection. The lighter weight and smaller size of this technology compared to the Jumbotron is another advantage. Other benefits:
  • They are more cost-effective and environmentally friendly because they save approximately 40% of energy.
  • They do not pollute the environment because their technology does not contain mercury.
  • They are adaptable, able to adapt and personalize their contents for various uses and situations.
  • They have superior image quality, with sharper contrasts and a broader color palette.
LED display panels are estimated to have 45 times more pixels than Jumbotron displays. These previously utilized cathode ray tubes, but have since transitioned to light-emitting diode panels (pure blue and green). Jumbotron vs Led screen panels

Why you should choose a LED Wall

LED Wall screens have undeniable advantages over previous technology. First and foremost, their longevity, is ten times that of CRT-based systems. What else should be considered when selecting a quality LED screen?
  • It would be preferable if they had local dimming (a system that improves lighting locally through several light sources in different areas of the screen to avoid dark spots). Thus, the greater the number of illumination zones, the brighter and higher quality of the image.
  • Consider the “pitch,” which is the optimal viewing distance from the front of the screen. The closer an individual is to it, the smaller the pitch.
  • Accordingly, the minimum distance between the viewer and the screen is calculated to be three times the diagonal of the product.
  • Minimal response time is desired.
  • The refresh rate should be as high as possible in hertz (Hz).
  • Also, the brightness and contrast should be high.
  • High resolution is required. 1080p is calculated for HD and Full HD.
  • Ideal inputs would include USB, HDMI (for DVD and external multimedia disks), and DTT.
  • Big LED screens are High Definition; they are pre-designed to reproduce images with a high resolution via the DVI or HDMI interface.
In turn, the major brands have designed various types of LED walls, which, despite having identical specifications, can be divided into two categories: Outdoor led panels include television screens and monitors. By virtue of their internal structure, indoor screen panels can be joined to form giant screens for a variety of purposes.
  • Video or cinema projection
  • Massive occasions
  • Regulatory and informative billboards
Always consider the minimum distance between the viewer and the screen when selecting the best LED display.

The old Jumbotron will be replaced with large LED screens.

In recent years, LED Video Walls have become the preferred option, for example, when selecting billboards, due to their visual appeal:
  • They are visually appealing, effective at attracting customers, and beneficial to the brand’s reputation (branding).
  • They work in tandem with signage
  • They are customizable
  • When necessary, content can be updated and adapted.
  • They have numerous applications.
  • They possess strong and uniform illumination.
  • They are cost-effective and durable
  • They are portable and adaptable to the various available spaces.
Jumbotron vs Led screen panels

Examples of this technology’s use in stadiums.

In February of this year, SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California installed a 109-meter-long, oval-shaped LED screen and began transmitting all kinds of information about the game, including replays, close-ups, statistics, results, and interactive updates, allowing the public to enjoy the show more by providing quality and interesting content instantly and on the spot. Another example is the Churchill Downs racetrack in the United States, where a large LED panel was installed a few years ago so that spectators can view the race broadcast from anywhere in the venue. It is a 4K LED Big Board measuring 52.12 x 27.43 meters and installed approximately 80 meters above the ground. This creates a viewing area of over 4,600 square meters.

Types of stadiums that made this visual upgrade:

  • Ice Hockey
  • American soccer stadiums
  • NBA stadiums
  • Live music venues
  • Baseball
  • Racetracks

Additionally, live-streaming video of the event can be displayed on an LED wall. This allows everyone to see every detail of what is happening, even if they are not directly in front of the stage.

But, what else should be considered when selecting a quality LED screen?

  • It would be preferable if they had local dimming (a system that improves lighting locally through several light sources in different areas of the screen to avoid dark spots). Thus, the greater the number of illumination zones, the brighter and higher quality of the image.
  • Consider the “pitch,” which is the optimal viewing distance from the front of the screen. The smaller dimension it has, the less distance will have to be between the screen and the viewer.
  • For the ideal viewing experience, the pixel pitch should be multiplied by 10. For instance, with a 4 mm pixel pitch, a viewer must be 12 feet (3.66 m) away from a video wall for any detail, and 40 feet (ca. 12 m) away for optimal viewing.
  • The refresh rate should be as high as possible in hertz (Hz).
  • Large LED screens are High Definition; they are pre-designed to reproduce images with a high resolution via the DVI or HDMI interface.
  •  

In order to choose the best LED screen, it is always necessary to consider the minimum distance between the audience and the screen.

The major brands have developed different types of LED screens, and although both have the same specifications, they can be divided into two main types:

Outdoor screens panels:

Best solution for stages, shows, stadiums, bars, stores and more.

Indoor screens panels:

for Indoor environments. Ideal for stages, shows, churches, tradeshows, and more.

LED Market's commitment to excellence is evident in every aspect of their service
good service, thank you
LED Market has been instrumental in enhancing our church services. Steve's professionalism and commitment to excellence have exceeded our expectations. The LED panels have transformed our sanctuary into a dynamic space where our congregation can engage with the message of hope and love.
We recently incorporated LED Market's LED video wall into our trade show booths, and the results have been fantastic. The P3.91mm display size of 9.8 ft provides stunning visuals that attract visitors and make our booth stand out from the crowd.
Fantastic communication and incredible customer service makes up for the lackluster LED control software "NovaLCT" (which is not LED Market's product BTW - they are stuck with it). LED Market has knowledgeable experts who can help navigate the software to get your wall up and running.
Response from the owner: Hi Matt,Thank you for your fantastic review! We're thrilled to hear you appreciated our communication and customer service. Our team is always here to help navigate the LED control software and ensure your LED video wall operates flawlessly.Best regards,LED MARKET TEAM
Thank you LED Market for our fantastic new Video Wall. We are very happy with the product and your service.
Response from the owner: It was a pleasure working with you. Thank you for your review. I hope you enjoy your LED video wall.
Our purchase of the P2.97 display was a suitable experience.From the sale provided by Steve to the process of cost estimation and the hiring of installers.They have listened to us with great attention. We had no knowledge about this technology, but now we have become almost experts, all thanks to Steve and Santhi. Ledmarket is a company that provides a significant amount of value through its services, which is quite noteworthy.
Response from the owner: Thank you guys. Enjoy the led wall!
Our rating is 10/10 because my first call was great, the second call was much better in understanding which pixel pitch and installation method to choose, the third call with Steve was even better because they got us a financed price, and the fourth call was for complete the purchase and receive the order in a few days!I can't say anything other than Thank you STEVE!!!
They contacted me dozens of times until one day I gave up and bought the LED screen for my church. The parishioners and the entire community that attends Sunday services are happy!If they are happy and enjoy more, then so am I!
The 1.86mm panel for our virtual production studio was definitely the best purchase of the year. We'd worked with other companies and now we're left with LEDMarket. Next year, we'll need more panels to increase the filming stages and we already have our new provider :)Steve always answered our calls, but one time we called after hours and the technician spent a long time helping us until we finished the successful installation...this has never happened before with an AV integrator or provider.
They have installed a 3.11mm LED video wall in our school entrance hall. We have done the first show with the families and everyone has been shocked! I congratulate ledmarket for the work done and the quality of their products. Steve was always great with us
Steve is the best salesman. Please speak with him and inquire about any inquiries you may have regarding the operation of the LED panels. Our screen is a 3.91 and it appears excellent on our stage...I believe that, for a church, it is a suitable resolution.
I would not recommend any other company other than Ledmarket. Everything has turned out well!
They're attentive to every detail, with lots of experience in the LED video wall industry. Our next tradeshows will definitely be more successful with these LED panels. Steve's really friendly on the phone. They sent us guides and help to solve problems not related to our screen but that helped to finish the installation. Our AV integrator's demanding, but he always mentions the pleasant experience of working with LEDmarket technicians during the installation of the LED video walls system. It's a company with a track record and responsibility for carrying out successful projects. We'd buy from this supplier again.
Ledmarket is an excellent supplier for the installation of street billboards.
Ledmarket is an excellent supplier for the installation of street billboards. Every year we place more than 20 LED display signage in different states, we have found our next supplier for 2024!
Thank you Steve, your work was impeccable, you helped us a lot, congratulations for completing this operation so successfully, my family and I are very happy with our new LED dispay home theater
The people who work at Led Market have helped us since the beginning. They made our experience amazing by giving us great advice on which LED panel type to buy and then calling us to help us set it up. They offer great service after the sale, which makes us very happy and gives us peace of mind. Our church has changed a lot since we got this big LED screen. Thank you, Steave!

From pre-sales inquiries answered by Santhiago to expert technical help from Gus during setup, we're sold. Delivery from Florida to Texas was seamless.
We're starting a virtual production project, and the 2.5 screen they sold us is perfect. As I told you the other day, Santhiago, next month we're getting the second one. Thanks.
We spent 3 months deciding whether the church should invest in the screen or not. Without a doubt, the best decision. People are amazed, and so are we. Thanks, Santhiago.
Purchased an LED screen for our events - the quality is fantastic. Installation was a breeze.
Response from the owner: At LED Market, we strive to provide top-notch products that meet the highest standards of quality. We understand the importance of delivering a fantastic visual experience for your events, and we're delighted that our LED screen has met your expectations.
The technical support provided has been outstanding. They promptly addressed any concerns we had and ensured our LED screen operated flawlessly. We definitely recommend you guys!
We are extremely satisfied with the LED panels. We have taken this with us for touring. First times it was a bit complex but now we got it and extremely happy with it
Pretty happy about the whole experience with this company. So many Us companies to choose from that is hard to choose one. If you call them and they reply within 5 minutes…then we buy from you. Thank you TJ and Santhiago for answering all of my questions
They are great in every way. Recommend led market
Our restaurant's ambiance has been transformed with the screen. 5 stars!
