Why Do Some Video Walls Look Bad on Camera?

Does your LED Video Wall look great in person but have a strange rippling pattern on camera? That is called a moiré pattern and is one of the many challenges that we assist you with when installing a Springtree LED Video Wall.

The Solution

The best way to minimize the effect is to set your video wall to a 3840hz or higher refresh rate. Every Springtree Video Wall is preset to 3840hz.
*Pushing your refresh rate higher than this can result in a loss of its ability to create true blacks in its display.

We also help preset your camera’s settings and positions to minimize any moiré pattern in your live stream.

What is Pixel Pitch?

Pixel Pitch is the distance between a Video Wall’s LED Clusters, also known as pixels. Pixel pitch is important to pay attention to because it determines how far the wall needs to be from your audience. It also correlates with price. The lower the pixel pitch, the higher the price.

A way to do a rough estimate is the 10x rule. Multiply the pixel pitch by 10, and that is the rough distance your audience needs to be away from your wall. So a 3.9 pixel pitch wall would need to be 39 feet away from the nearest audience member. Springtree offers a 3.9 and a 2.9 pixel pitch wall. If you need a different pixel pitch, or an outdoor wall, please contact us directly.
