LCD vs LED Screens Explained

It can often be confusing, hearing all of these acronyms and names being flung around when talking about displays: LED, LCD, plasma, OLED, just to name a few. You will be relieved to find out that it is not really as complicated as it sounds.

There really is not much difference between LCD and LED, and those are really the two most common displays. Even though they have different acronyms, an LED TV is just a certain kind of LCD TV. The technical term for such a piece of tech would be an “LED-backlit LCD TV”, can you see why people just call them LED TVs now?

Both of these types of TV utilize a liquid crystal display panel to manipulate where light will be displayed on your screen. These panels will generally be made of two extremely thin sheets of material that hold a solution made of liquid crystal between them. When an electric current makes its way through the liquid, it causes the crystals to align, in order to allow or prevent light from passing through. Each individual crystal acts as a shutter, in the sense that it will either allow light to pass through or block it out.

As you can see, there really is no difference between an LCD and an LED screen, especially when you consider the fact that these days non-LED-backlit LCD TVs are obsolete – you will not be able to buy a brand new one from any store.

But, the good news is that LED TVs became readily available in the mid-to-late 2000s and since then they have become incredibly cost-effective.

We are available to provide LED monitor rentals for all of your short-term display needs wherever you are.

Whether you need LED screens in NYC for an annual investor presentation, or you need a huge outdoor LED video wall for a festival in Miami, renting is more cost-effective than buying and storing them between events.

LED monitors can even be clustered in order to create LED video walls, and offer a fantastic way to display information, or show films or presentations in a professional and non-intrusive manner.

LED Screens offer the ideal solution for all indoor and outdoor events with display needs, where a big screen is required in order to deliver high-impact, high-quality video and images.

If your business is staging an event such as a conference, then it is highly likely that additional screens will be required. This can be essential for a variety of reasons including branding at events, information for visitors, and for displaying live social media feeds that are related to the event. Large displays are perfect for use during presentations and speeches to ensure that those at the back don’t miss a thing. LED displays are lightweight, extremely portable, and suitable for a variety of needs and purposes.
