LED - the rising star for businesses

Early adopters of new technologies can often be found in the corporate sector, especially when it comes to AV.  And a technology currently leading the way within the corporate market is sub 5mm, Narrow Pixel Pitch (NPP) LED, which now holds 58% of the corporate LED signage market.

Why has it seen such growth? Because LED provides high brightness, high impact displays, even in high ambient light environments .  This makes it ideal as the main display in a boardroom or auditorium or the atrium welcome in the lobby.

But it is not just the brightness that makes these displays the corporate high flier:

Making a big impression

LED displays produce glorious imagery with incredible depth of colour and detail – even in bright boardrooms – guaranteeing presentations look impressive.


LCD screens can only reach around 100” in size – and even then – they are incredibly expensive, heavy and impractical to install.  LED displays are modular in design, so can be as large as you need.  These are made up of slim panels to create a seamless display with no bezels disrupting the image.

Optoma’s QUAD LED display has the simplicity of a single LCD screen but is larger (130”), proportionally lighter, easier to install but still gives the ‘wow factor’.  Its unique pre-build process reduces the installation complexity and means this can be operational in just a couple of hours with less downtime for the business and a lower overall total project cost.

Each LED screen is made up of individual surface mount diodes or SMD (sometimes referred to as a package). Within each SMD there is an individual red, green and blue diode which makes each SMD work as an individual pixel that is the building block for all display devices. A full HD screen is made up of over two million individual pixels.

Optoma’s QUAD LED display is at the forefront of LED screen design, pioneering a 4-in-1 (four pixels in one package) SMD layout. This unique design creates a high-quality image with extremely wide viewing angles and a very flat finish. The design creates excellent black levels along with the added benefit of a robust front face less prone to damage.

ErP compliance

Corporate environments need to ensure equipment is ErP compliant and draws less than 0.5W in standby.  QUAD FHDQ130 is one of the few LED displays that can achieve this. 

No image retention

Unlike other technologies, LED does not suffer from image retention so static information can be displayed with no risk of image burn.

Low maintenance and reliability

Requirements of display products used in corporate environments often include a low maintenance solution, efficient running costs and operating temperatures. Optoma LED displays are highly reliable, designed for 24/7 usage, built from high quality parts down to component level, providing a low maintenance solution with a lifespan of over 100,000 hours or around ten years.


It is especially important in a corporate setting that displays are quiet to not distract audiences from the presentation or meeting. LED displays provide this visual focus without distraction.

Multiple mounting solutions

LED displays can be fitted on a framework, freestanding or wall mounted.  The LED modules can be fixed directly onto a suitable wall using wood or plaster screws without a mounting frame but a simple, lightweight frame option is available if needed. Optoma’s QUAD LED display comes with both a wall mounting bracket and hanging brackets.


LED displays are the natural choice for display technology in the corporate space.  They are bigger, brighter, while being reflection and bezel free.  They perform well in large environments with high ambient light.
