    About LED Bulbs

    Light-emitting diodes date back to the 1960s. For decades LEDs did not have many practical applications due to their manufacturing cost. Today, LEDs have cost-effective applications in most electronics.

    LED vs SMD

    Tri Bulb LED (DIP)

    Tri Bulb LEDs are larger in size than SMDs. Tri Bulb LEDs, however, still have many applications for cost-effective lighting. These applications include solar-powered lighting products used in areas with unreliable power supplies. Tri Bulb LEDs are also a better alternative to lighting because they use less energy and have a longer lifespan than, fluorescent light bulbs for example. The reduction of the size of the LED made it possible to place 3 LEDs of different color in one unit. The three colors – red, blue and green – create smaller pitch. The pitch (or distance) between pixels affects the resolution and image quality of an LED display, such as a digital billboard

    SMD

    SMD LEDs mount on the surface of electronic boards but do not physically go through the boards like other types of LEDs. Another important feature of SMD is miniaturization. Using one LED to create three colors results in improved image quality.

    How much does a Digital LED Billboard cost in South Africa?

    The cost of a digital billboard depends on many factors including the type of environment it needs to work in as well as your desired functionality. Though it is difficult to estimate, there are some things that you need to be aware of based on what you would like to do.

    Types Of LED Digital Billboard Screens Surfaces

    LED Digital Billboard Screen systems are generally designed for either indoor or outdoor environments. Screens can be built with a standard flat surface, curved surface, spliced surface, and transparent surfaces (ranging from 20% – 98% transparency). Understanding this should get you started with deciding what to do next.

    Types Of LED Digital Billboards Locations

    Indoor and Outdoor Digital Billboards can be mounted against a wall, hang from a suitable structure or be held up by a pole/s strong enough to carry the LED Digital Billboard Screen. When considering the structure aspect, whether wall mounts or on a pole, the choice should service two things: 1) It should be safe & 2) It should be visible from where the main foot or vehicle traffic is.

    Size Of The LED Digital Billboard Screen

    The total cost will comprise of the screen system, the structure, and putting it all together. All this aside, the size will be a balance of budget, visibility & the Digital Billboards’ visual impact. Size matters, the bigger the screen, the bigger the bill but also the bigger the screen the greater the value or offering.

    Every situation is different but we hope this helps.

    What Are Smart Billboards?: Cape Town

    If you’ve traveled anywhere by car, bus, or foot, you’ve undoubtedly seen an electronic billboard. To be clear, when we refer to an electronic or digital billboard, we are not only referring to traditional billboards like the ones you see next to freeways, but also smaller digital screens that might appear next to bus benches, shopping centers, or other high traffic areas.

    Once hailed as the next big thing in outdoor advertising, digital billboards quickly grew stale. Why? Because even though digital billboards allow a rotation of ads to be displayed, these types of billboards are still very easy to ignore.

    In order for any advertisement to really capture the attention of a human being, the ad needs to speak to the viewer, both literally and figuratively. This is where smart billboards come into play.

    What is Smart Advertising?

    A “smart” advertisement, much like a smartphone or any other “smart” device, is an advertisement that can dynamically react to its environment by sending and receiving data over an information network (like the Internet).

    The concept of a smart advertisement has been around for quite some time; in fact, any digital, out of home advertising that can adapt its message based on the time, date, or the weather can already be considered a “smart advertisement”.

    Keep in mind though that while these adaptive billboards may seem highly intelligent compared to traditional static billboards they are still very simple implementations that barely scratch the surface of what a truly high-tech billboard could achieve.

    What sorts of things will the billboards of the future do? They’ll dynamically react to their environment, changing the content displayed on the screen based on information they can collect about you, the onlooker.

    In order to accomplish this task, the billboard or digital screens of the future will be equipped with an array of technologies ranging from cameras, radar, infrared, and antennas, which will provide the “eyes” needed to be able to see, listen and react to their environment.

    How Digital Billboards are Changing the Face of Outdoor Advertising

    Advertisements, regardless of their form, are engineered to accomplish one thing: capture the attention of an onlooker and inspire action. In the past, the advertising industry predominantly used mediums such as newspapers, billboards, television, and the radio to deliver their marketing messages. These “traditional” mediums have received a few face lifts over the years in the form of digital outdoor advertising, as well as more advanced printing and broadcasting methods that increased their fidelity. However, with the advent of computers and the internet, traditional advertising became increasingly more sophisticated and digital or Internet-based advertising, which has proven to be significantly better for targeting specific demographics, leading many advertisers to drop support for traditional methods altogether.

    Recent technological innovations, however, have led many big players in the advertising industry to go back to traditional forms of advertising, specifically digital billboards and their smaller screened counterparts. Why? Because unlike online ads, billboards are not seen as being an inconvenience; in some cases, billboards are even seen as “artistic”, especially those put into the public’s eye by companies like Apple and Coca Cola. But what about capturing the passerby’s attention? With the use of new interactive technologies, billboards are becoming more than just static images painted on a wall: billboards are now participating members of the Internet of Things, and they’re getting smarter every day.
