Choosing a video screen for the trade show

You’ve made a great video content, you’ve chosen a type of the screen to demonstrate it — will now everything go smoothly? Yes, unless, of course, you stumble upon some nasty technical issues. Here are a few simple things we would advise you to check before you bring a screen to your exhibition stand.

Be careful with pixel size

Suppose your outstanding video content is full of lovely visual elements. You want every visitor to get the idea you have put behind the video. While your clients are not some fruit flies, their eyes and their brain feel better when the image on the screen consists of smaller pixels, rather than large ones.

You should only use screens with large grid elements when your stand size is overwhelmingly large and the video content doesn’t require any particular details to be seen. When a viewer stands too close to such screens one can only see a set of tiny individual lamps.

Discard the bulky obsolete screens

You pay for every square inch of your exhibition stand and it’s irrational to use bulky screens that require a lot of space behind them. These screens may be cheaper, but they are heavier and require some additional extra reliable bracing. So we advise you to prefer modern thin screens over their fat old counterparts.

Beware of dead pixels

This is certainly what a supplier should think about, but it won’t hurt if you double-check it too. Even a couple of dead pixels can ruin the image and spoil the overall impression of the video content.

Watch out: seams on large bent screens


Large screens tend to distort the image in general, especially if the viewer is too close. Bended screens compensate for it. Some low-quality bended screens may show the seams between individual units and this usually looks very ugly. If you plan to use the bent video screens in your exhibition stand, make sure they don’t have this imperfection.

Mind technical requirements

Just as with any equipment it would be a great idea to find out the technical requirements of your screens ahead of time. Some may require a special power source, different screens may need different video formats.

Mind the installation requirements — how the screen should be fixed. Usually, you will get a checklist from your supplier, so you should see if the exhibition venue can support them. Finding out that you need a certain type of socket to switch on the video screen after you already brought it to the stand is a little too late, so try to learn these details in advance.  

Now you are well-equipped and ready to choose the best suitable screens for your video content.
