What is the difference between LED SMD and DIP screens?
Each LED screen consists of LED modules which are made of several hundred to several thousand diodes. There are 3 types of LED modules used on the market:
- a module based on RGB SMD diodes – it is the highest quality type of diodes in which one diode emits 3 primary colours at the same time – R (red), G (green) and B (blue). These diodes are characterised by a high quality of the emitted light, wide viewing angles, colour stability and durability and energy efficiency. This type of diodes allows to create modules with high resolutions - even under P2.
- a module based on RGB DIP diodes – it is a type of diode which, like RGB SMD diodes, can emit 3 primary colours – RGB, contrary to SMD diodes it doesn’t have that wide viewing angles and has a way bigger demand for energy.
- a DIP 1R, 1G, 1B module – these modules consist of 3 sets of diodes which are installed close to each other. Each diode emits only one colour, but its closeness gives the illusion of emitting many colours. Modules based on this technology have definitely lower resolutions than modules based on RGB SMD diodes. The energy consumption is the highest in this case.
