“What is your opinion on using traditional video wall panels vs. tight-pitch LEDs?”

The world of digital displays is evolving rapidly. Technology continues to advance, and product quality improvements are continuously available.

The pitch of an LED (light emitting diode) is the space between the pixels on a screen, measured from the center of one pixel to the center of an adjacent pixel. The larger the distance, or pitch, the lower the resolution or clarity. The gaps between the lights appear as tiny dark patches. Thus, the closer the LED, the more those dark gaps are reduced.

Tight-pitch LEDs are those set closer together. This is also referred to as close pitch, narrow pitch, or short pitch. A display with a tight pitch will provide a picture that is not only of higher resolution but also one with more uniform light. 

A tight-pitch LED screen will provide a more intense, realistic, and beautiful image. When quality is critical, this becomes an excellent choice.
