P3 P4 LED wall are more commonly used LED displays because their spacing is relatively small, so many people use them as background walls or video walls. This can not only modify the background but also watch as a TV. It can be said that It is very convenient. What is the difference between LED display P3 and P4? Which is better? Let’s talk about the difference between the two.
Before understanding the LED display, we first need to understand what the P in front of P3 and P4 means, so that when we encounter other different types of products, we can quickly respond to their problems.
If we are usually careful, we will find that all types of LED displays will form a phrase with P followed by a number followed by an LED display. It is roughly like this:P+Num+“LED display”
For example, the P3 LED display or P4 LED display we mentioned above. Then on this basis, we will see more expansion of some phrases, such as “P3 full-color indoor LED display”, “P4 outdoor rental LED display” and so on.
After splitting the phrases, some viewers must have guessed the secret between them. The P in the LED display P3 or P4 refers to the distance between the center points of the two lights (generally represents the pixel spacing), and the number after P refers to the distance between two pixels, commonly known as the point spacing.
Different types of LED walls can be judged by different point spacings. The splicing of P3 LED modules is called P3 LED wall, and the splicing of P4 LED modules is called P4 LED wall. The P3 vs P4 LED wall use more delicate P3 LED modules to make the display look more perfect.
The smaller the value of the distance between two-pixel points, the higher the unit pixel point, and the clearer the display screen. The smaller the dot pitch, the higher the pixel density, and the clearer the picture. However, the smaller the corresponding point spacing is, the closer the visual distance is. If it is viewed too far, the effect of the picture will gradually decrease.
At this point, we can already see that the pixels of P3 and P4 are different, so their sharpness can already be viewed at different distances. This difference in modules will eventually be reflected between LED screen P3 vs P4. In this way, we can summarize the following differences:
Let’s first look at the parameters of the two
Basic parameters of P3 LED display
- Dot spacing: 3mm
- Pixel density: 111111 points/㎡
- Drive mode: 1/16 scan
- Average power consumption: 580W
- Best viewing distance: 3~30M
Basic parameters of P4 LED display
- Dot spacing: 4mm
- Pixel density: 62500 points/㎡
- Drive mode: 1/8 scan
- Average power consumption: 390W
- Best viewing distance: 5~40M
The difference between the two
different number of pixels
Although in reality, a gap of 1 mm is insignificant to us, if it exceeds 1 mm, the gap will gradually increase and the effect will be greatly reduced.
In the LED industry, for example, the difference between P3 LED modules and P4 LED modules is 1 mm. However, after being assembled into a 1 square meter P3 LED display and a P4 LED display, the gap between the two reaches 48,611 points. This undoubtedly adds a lot of costs, and these costs will ultimately be shared with customers.
The smaller the dot pitch of the LED display, the more difficult the production and processing will be, and the higher the price will be. Therefore, in the same type, the price of P3 is higher than that of P4. And the larger the dot spacing, the more suitable for long-distance viewing. Because the dot spacing is different, the price and lamp density of the two are also different;
different viewing distances
In the range of less than or equal to 10 meters, the display effect of P3 will be better than that of P4. In the range of more than 10 meters, the viewing effect of the two is not very obvious. If you pursue cost-effectiveness, you can choose P4, but if you use P3, the effect It will be better, if it is more than 20 meters, then it will be better to choose P4.
After our actual calculation, we know that the best viewing distance of p3 LED display is 3 meters away. If you watch it within 3 meters, the picture will have some graininess. It is recommended to choose a display with a smaller dot pitch.
The best viewing distance of the P4 LED screen is 4 meters away, and the viewing distance of the P4 is longer. If the viewing distance is within 4 meters, there will also be graininess. If the viewing distance is relatively far, you can choose P4, if the viewing distance is relatively short. Just use P3. If the viewing distance is very long and choose the P3 screen, it is likely to spend a lot of money, but the advantages of the P3 LED display will not be exerted.
So when we choose a display, we must first measure the viewing distance. Avoid spending more money because the viewing distance is too far, but it does not achieve better results.
The size of a single module of the P3 LED display is 192×192mm, and the size of a single module of the P4 LED screen is 320×160mm. From the perspective of a single module, the module of P4 will be larger, and the module of P3 will be smaller.
Different application scenarios
The application scenarios of LED screens are different. P3 LED displays are mainly used in indoor, large lecture halls, large banquet halls, and other occasions. The picture is clear and high in contrast. The LED display is mainly used for performance stages, rental, and other occasions with a relatively long viewing distance, and the outdoor P4 screen is mainly used in squares, stadiums, and other occasions.
Like the LED video wall, both P3 and P4 have customer choices. The difference between the LED wall P3 vs P4 is that the dot pitch of P3 is smaller, and the effect will be better when viewed at a close distance, but the corresponding price will be more expensive.
