What is a mobile LED display?

In theory, every LED display can be a mobile LED display. We can install a display screen on a trailer or truck. It is a flexible way of using a display screen. We can move this mobile LED screen trailer or truck anywhere to display our content. We can use it for advertising, stage events, etc.

There are various kinds of trailers available that we can use. For example, we can have open or closed trailers. A closed trailer has a protected space for an LED display. And there is a separate area for the control room.

What should we consider before buying a mobile LED display?

For mobile LED screens, there are some specifications. We should consider these while renting or buying. So here is the list of some specifications:

  • Screen Size
  • Aspect ratio
  • Pixel pitch
  • Resolution
  • IP rating
  • Brightness
  • Wind rating
  • Warranty

Screen size:

It would be best if you always preferred to have mobile LED screen trailers of bigger sizes. The primary purpose is to grab the attention of the audience. We can grab attention if it is visible at a significant distance. People can view it from further away if it is big enough. So, if you expect large crowds of people, you should consider a screen at least 15 ft. wide.

Aspect ratio:

A trailer screen aspect ratio is 16:9. It is the standard ratio. If you want to display your traditional content, ensure this ratio.

Pixel pitch:

The pixel pitch is the measurement between the center of two adjacent pixels. It measures how close together these pixels are. The lower the pixel pitch, the higher the pixel density per unit. For high pixel density, we have high resolution. Therefore, a small pixel pitch is of great value.

So, while renting a display, we must consider the pixel pitch. A number usually indicates pixel pitch. For example, if we have a P5 screen, it suggests that the dot pitch is 5 mm.

Pixel density will determine the resolution of the mobile LED display trailer. In simple words, the resolution of a screen is its pixel count. We can write it as pixels width x pixels high. For example, consider a screen with W 1,280 x H 768 pixels. 1,280 is the number of pixels on the screen width, while 768 indicates its height pixel number. Applying this formula, we can determine the resolution of the screen.

IP rating:

IP stands for ingress protection. It is the measurement of the screen resistance to dust and liquid. So you have to take into consideration this aspect for outdoor advertising usage. Mobile screens will counter dust regularly. So you will prefer LEDs with a suitable IP rating.

For outdoor displays, the minimum rating should be IP65.


The primary factor which we have to encounter in outdoor setup is daylight. In daylight, it is pretty challenging to view displays if the brightness is low. Thus, the brightness should be high enough that the screen has a clear view even in daylight.

We measure the brightness in nits. For outdoor screens, we need a brightness of 4,500 nits or more. This expected value will ensure a clear view even in bright daylight.

Wind rating:

For outdoor LED screens, we always consider environmental factors. The wind is also an essential factor affecting the display’s quality. Wind rating is an important safety measure. Make sure you have stamped wind rating of your unit. It will ensure the safety of the screen.


Maintenance is always an essential factor for any electronic device. These screens usually need some maintenance. We have to replace modules after some time. So, while buying such screens, consider the spare parts. Moreover, ensure a warranty that comes with your screen.
