Outdoor use of LED screens
Temporary installed outdoor LED screens
Incidents with outdoor LED screens are a returning point of discussion. With this in mind, we would like to support all AV techs on the road with some basic information about the theory and practice concerning the use of temporary installed outdoor LED screens.
Like most products used in the entertainment industry, LED screens are utilized in outdoor as well as indoor environments. When used outdoor, environmental aspects need to be taken into account. Sun, rain and wind can have a large influence on either the performance or the structural integrity of your screen. Let us focus on a few of these influences and what you need to know about them, before you build your LED screen outdoors.

Wind is one of the most influential factors to take into account when using your LED screen in an outdoor environment, because it might affect the structural integrity of your screen. Many smaller and larger accidents with LED screens showcase just how devastating wind force can be. Did you ever walk outside in the wind and rain and tried to hold on to your umbrella? Now think of the same, but with an umbrella 200 times the size. That gives you an impression of wind force.
You need proper knowledge of the situation before building an LED screen in an outdoor environment.
