Behind the Scenes Maintenance and Training on LED Screens
Many people see an LED screen and figure you just show to events every once in a while and everything just magically works. However, there is so much that goes on behind the scenes between training, testing time, repairing gear, construction of equipment and shop space, learning new technologies and software, and other maintenance.
It takes a lot to provide these LED screens and ensure the best product when we arrive at your event. We don't just show up and set your event, pack it all up at the end, and then wait for the next event. There is a ton of work that occurs between shows that most people don't realize. And as with any industry, not everyone takes these extra steps to make sure they are providing a quality product.
LED screens are a fragile technology that require constant maintenance and repair. At many shows, we end up finding LED tiles that have a pixel that may be damaged or have gone out, which is why we always bring extra tiles so we can switch that tile out with a new one. With over 10,000 pixels on every single tile, it may not be very noticeable depending on the content playing. Some people might not swap out for a new tile, but we do our best to make sure every pixel on your screen is 100%. Once we discover a bad pixel or tile, we take this back to our shop and have to take the time to solder the pixel connection back to the panel. This is just one of the many examples of some of the extra work that goes into maintaining our gear.
Along with our equipment maintenance, we are constantly looking for new training opportunities to learn more about our gear, and the rest of the industry. Whether this is traveling somewhere for a class, bringing in experts to teach us something, doing research on any number of topics, or attending seminars and trade shows, we are always looking for new learning opportunities. We are also open to new software and technology that may help us provide a better show on our big screens.
Take a look at the short video below showing just some of the training and maintenance that happens when no one else is looking:
