I attended a high school that was comparable to the size of a college campus. Where I lived, many people had the means to invest heavily and donate in the school. Sports were huge as to where the theater department was left in the shadows. The whole community loved supporting the high school football team. So much so that even local commercials even featured some of the football players! The screens they used though in the stadium were old though and were hard to see clearly. Eventually the parents pulled together and voted on what would be the next best investment for the school.
They decided on LED screens for the stadium. One of the moms lead the research into what the best option was an in conclusion decided on LED displays. This would allow the games to be watched clearly from the stands, and even for playbacks to be aired. The screens would be able to be read during the day and at night. The undergoing of construction and labor needed to put up the large screens was not strenuous since the screens came in an assortment of shapes and sizes, and more specifically they could come in LED panels that were light-weight and easily assembled. They were also cost effective because the LED screens did not use nearly as much energy as the old screens. This meant that the school would save on the electricity bill while running the giant screens.
My high-school also held ceremonies on the football field so the screens would be used more than just for the games. It would be another way to help the seniors of the community see what was going on as well. The LED display was purchased and put up in no time. The picture was very clear and everyone was impressed with what a difference it made for game day experience. Eventually due to the number of people moving out to the hill country, the school was due for another expansion and the theater department was getting new facilities. To be included in the new developments was the addition of LED curtains and screens for the theater. These could be used during productions to increase the surreal effects of setting and scene. Whether it be a clear starry night or a dark lightning strewn ocean in which we were trying to displays, the screens could make it all that much more possible.
When guest speakers would visit our school the theater could also be used for their speeches. The LED screens could be used to display picture or quotes to highlight what the speaker was talking. There was even the option to have verbatim what the speaker was saying displayed on the screen. Word of all this high-school had to offer got around fast and made more parents eager to move out to the hill country. Overall LED screens are an affordable and practical investment any school can make to enhance the the learning and overall experience of attending!
If you are looking to take your touring experience to the next level, one of the best ways to make the concert experience infinitely better for your audience is to add a LED screen to your show. LED screens have combined some of the best technology out there to allow clear, bright and undoubtedly stunning pictures and designs to the background of your performance. LEDs provide the brightest and most vivid picture and the LED screens can be designed to fit any size so no matter if you are playing smaller venues or large arenas you can find something to fit your exact specifications. If you are going between a variety of different sized venues it is also possible to attach a number of smaller LED display screens together and achieve a larger scale screen. Most LED screens are designed for both indoor as well as outdoor use as well so they can easily go between any concert venue without worries. The screens are also light and flexible which makes them easy to transport while on the road. Four panels can fold together and fit into a single road case.
The panels and screens are also quite easy to set up and many companies even have screens with a quick lock system which not only makes the process of hanging them up easier, but safer and with less worry about expensive accidents. The whole thing is also ran by a single control unit so whoever is running the system can quickly and easily switch between different images and controlling the panels individually or as a single unit. The LED panels and screens can either be set up behind the band to add fun, crazy, trippy background images or set up above or to the side of the band to ensure that even the people in the very back can get a great and up close view of the band. One of the coolest uses of LED screens that I have personally seen is when Radiohead used them on their tour last year. Instead of being put together in a single shape they were hanging from different levels and different angles, sometimes shifting directions but all with a common design. Having them move around in particular gave an amazing effect to stage.
LED screens also have the added benefit of showing up in pictures when the audience goes home and posts all of their photos and videos of the concert online, they will be sharp and clear, showing the full beauty of the concert rather than the band with a weird, fuzzy mess in the background that no one on YouTube can decipher. This becomes especially important if you are using any footage of the concerts for music videos, promotional videos or any sort of video that follows the tour. If people are going to watch, and especially to pay for, any of your recorded material, it has to be of the highest quality possible. LED panels are so versatile that there isn’t anything you can’t do with this cool technology.
