COST COMPARISON 

An accurate direct price comparison between the Vivid 4 and AV3 LED panels is hard to do. Chauvet DJ lists their panel’s price for a four pack with a flight case. American DJ’s AV3 is listed per panel, and each of its flight cases hold 8 panels, so merely adding 4 panels + a flight case will not give you an accurate price.

They are also different sizes, so while it costs more, each Chauvet DJ panel is twice as long!

AV3 Per Panel= $1,139.99 

4x AV3 + flight case= $5,059.95 

Vivid 4 for a 4 pack plus flight case= $6,599.99

Further complicating an accurate price comparison is the fact that prices are provided in MAP. meaning the lowest price allowed to be listed online. For the most accurate price, you would have to inquire over email for a personalized low price. 

WHAT’S PIXEL PITCH? AND DOES IT MATTER?

Pixel Pitch is the measure of distance between the tiny LEDs that make up your LED screen. It is measured in millimeters, and features a range of anywhere below 10, with the smaller the better! A smaller Pixel Pitch looks better close up, whereas you have to be farther away to get the full resolution effect of larger Pixel Pitches. Smaller Pixel Pitch means more expensive! So if your LED wall is only going to be viewed from a distance, a larger pixel pitch will be a great option.
