School Sign Technology

An LED school sign is a uses light-emitting diodes or LEDs to create a message via text, picture or video.  An LED sign is made up of small building blocks or modules of LEDs.  Golden Rule Signs offers both indoor and outdoor LED school sign solutions.  From an LED marquee sign out front of a school and LED scoreboards or advertising panels at the school’s athletic facilities to indoor video walls that function as scoreboards for basketball/volleyball or play a movie clip at a pep-rally, the applications and solutions are both broad and innovative.

Below are technical aspects of LED technology that would be beneficial for any prospective buyer to learn. If you have questions or comments about LED technology, contact our team and we will answer any questions and work together to design the perfect sign package for your school.

What is a Pixel?

A pixel is a cluster of 1 or more LEDs. Full-color pixels feature red, green, and blue LEDs or diodes.

What is Pitch?

The pixel-pitch of an LED sign is the distance between each pixel, typically measured in millimeters. Golden Rule Signs offers 20mm, 16mm, 10mm, and 6mm, and 3mm LED school signs.

What is a Matrix?

An LED display’s matrix represents the number of pixels on the display measured vertically and horizontally.  A display with a pixel matrix of 64 x 192 has 64 pixels from top to bottom and 192 from left to right.  This is not representative of the physical size of the sign.

What is the Viewing Angle?

A sign’s viewing angle dictates its ability to been viewed from the extreme left and right. The content on an LED school sign with a poor viewing angle (70 degrees) will disappear sooner as you pass the sign.
