An LED table is a quality investment that can generate advertising dollars for your school or company, but it is no small purchase. When buying a digital scorer’s table, it is necessary that you completely understand what you are buying and the quality of the product. Boostr has put together a list of the most important questions to ask when purchasing an LED table, whether that be from us or from any vendor.
The first important question to ask might just be the most crucial. You not only need to ask what the pixel pitch is, but you should also verify this information on the back of the panel. If a company is being honest and has good intentions, then this information should be easy for them to verify. A lower millimeter number will give you higher resolution and clarity than a higher millimeter number. For example, 4.8mm is a much better option than 6mm.
Display panel height is equally as important as pixel pitch. You can verify the height by asking for a picture of the panel size. This should also be simple for the company to verify for you. The display area is incredibly important, as that is what drives advertisers to invest their dollars with you. That area is determined by the display panel height.
Ideally, you want each of your panels to be from the same batch lot. This will ensure consistency in the color and clarity between the panels. If you are looking to purchase a new panel or replace a part, always make sure that the company you are buying from has panels in stock from the same batch. Even though a part from a different batch can be programmed to function, you will most likely see a noticeable difference in the presentation.
This is not always easy to define, and sometimes companies will try to ensure you that their parts are high-quality even if they are not. However, there are some things you can look out for when purchasing. Most importantly, there should never be any breaks in the display panel area. Boostr custom builds all of its tables based on size and criteria specified when the order is placed. That way, we can avoid this problem completely.
