One of the most closely-related measurements to pixel pitch is known as dot pitch for computer screens. When computer monitors were first invented, it was relatively easy to see the individual pixels with the naked eye. Those monitors, therefore, had a low dot pitch. These days, when most computer screens come in high resolution, it can be very difficult to make out individual dots unless you get close.
Take this way of thinking about a computer screen, and blow it up to the size of an LED Wall. It’s the overall density of LED clusters on the board.
This is far from mystical jargon that you should leave to the professionals; it is actually a make-it-or-break-it factor affecting your end cost.
LED Walls are usually sold as a number of rectangular, pixelated panels. A lower pixel pitch means more dots and more money. A higher pixel pitch means fewer dots and less money.
Don’t unnecessarily drive up your costs with a pixel pitch that’s too low for your needs!
On the other hand, make sure you are getting what you pay for in terms of your desired resolution.
