Although today’s LED technology is particularly mature and prices have decreased significantly compared to a few years ago, it is still expensive for many businesses. So what are the factors that affect the price of LED display screens?
Nowadays, with the increasing number of LED display screen manufacturers, the competition in the LED display screen industry is becoming increasingly fierce, and LED displays have also engaged in price wars. However, the saying “cheap is not good, good is not cheap” is actually quite true. Today, with the development of technology, LED display screens have indeed seen a decrease in materials from upstream to downstream, but they have still not decreased much. So many manufacturers have varying levels of prices, what are the reasons behind this? Let’s analyze it below. In fact, there are four main types of factors that affect the price of LED display screens.
1、 The impact of raw materials on the price of LED display screens
In terms of raw materials, they can be divided into imported materials and domestically produced materials.
In terms of luminescent chips, the sources of imports include the United States, Japan, Taiwan, such as NIA, Kerui, and Wafer. Currently, there are also some domestically produced chips such as Huacan. Each type of luminescent chip has its own advantages and disadvantages. The chips from the United States and Japan, as they have always mastered core technologies, have high prices but also the best quality under similar monopolies. The prices of chips in Taiwan and mainland China are relatively cheap, but there is still a certain gap in their performance compared to chips in the United States and Japan. If LED display screens are used in important situations, it is recommended to use imported materials; In addition to LED chips, the main factor affecting the price of LED display screens is the LED driver IC, which is also a very important factor affecting the quality and lifespan of LED display screens. When making full color LED displays, it is necessary to use a constant voltage and current driver IC; In addition, other materials such as power supplies, glue, and various accessories for making display screens are determined by their price, which to some extent affects the normal use of the display screen.
2、 The impact of specifications on the price of LED display screens
Here we will only talk about conventional products. Outdoor LED display screens can be divided into single color, dual color, and full color in terms of color, and can be divided into indoor and outdoor semi outdoor in terms of usage environment. The price of each specification of LED electronic display screen is different. Indoor full color can be divided into full color with surface sticker, full color with surface sticker in one, and full color with dot matrix. Outdoor full color can be divided into 1R1G1B (usually high-density, such as PH8, PH110) 2R1G1B (usually high-density, such as PH16, PH20, etc.). Due to different specifications, production and research processes, and the use of raw materials, the price will not vary, so single and dual color LED displays are the cheapest.
3、 The impact of main supporting systems on the price of LED display screens
Display system accessories: sending card, receiving card, adapter card;
Playback system: Control the computer, multimedia card, graphics card, and playback software;
Protection system: heat dissipation system, power distribution system, lightning protection system;
LED display screen editing system: editing computer, video compression card, editing software;
Sound system: amplifier+speaker;
Display screen video input equipment: DVD/VCD player, video recorder, closed circuit television;
LED display screen image and text input: scanner, digital camera. The above accessories and devices, except for system accessories and playback systems, are all optional devices.
Monitoring system: sensors+monitoring software;
Although these factors are not the most important for LED display screens, they cannot be ignored. A poor receiving and sending card can cause the LED display screen to not receive and send signals properly, so we still need to take it seriously.
4、 The impact of construction factors on the price of LED display screens
LED display screens are influenced by factors such as installation location, installation method, screen size, and frame structure material selection, and there will definitely be significant differences in installation project prices. Especially when installing outdoor LED full color display screens, in cold seasons, due to the influence of construction environment, the project prices vary greatly.
The above are the four main factors that affect the price of display screens. Understanding these main factors, in the process of purchasing display screens in the future, it is necessary to consider the issues that have already arisen in the service life of LED electronic displays in the future, and you will understand why many manufacturers have uneven prices.
