How to Use the New LED Screen Builder from Firefly LED

If you haven’t already checked it out, we have an intuitive LED screen builder on our website that allows you to build your very own LED display. We just relaunched it with an updated user interface, and a simplified results page — all with the goal of helping ease the buying process.

To some, it may seem overwhelming or confusing, so we’ll walk you through how to use it so you can take full advantage. Let’s dive in!

Step 1: Series, Pixel Pitch & Ratio

When you first arrive on the Screen Builder page, the first section is dedicated to specifying the LED series of choice, pixel pitch and the ratio. Once you’ve explored your options in both the Indoor LED and Outdoor LED, you’ll want to select the LED series that best applies to your specific needs. For this example, we’ll use our Indoor LED A Series.

Please note, our E Series, Flyer Series, and C Series are not included in our LED Screen Builder — they are all-in-one displays that don’t have custom capabilities. You can visit their respective pages to view their pricing and buy them direct.

Once you’ve chosen A Series, the appropriate Pixel Pitch options for that series will populate based on your selection. If you’re unsure about Pixel Pitch, check out our article here where explain what it is. We’ll go ahead and select 1.2mm, where the viewing distance of our screen will be close.

Now that we’ve chosen the Pixel Pitch, the Ratio field will now be available to pick from. You’ll notice that the only option is to choose “Custom” — this is intentional, as choosing a ratio is all too confusing at this point, and we want you to build a screen without constraints.

Let’s move on to the next step!

Step 2: Width & Height

With the initial options selected, you’ll want to now enter your Screen Width and Height. Because the Ratio is Custom, the Width and Height can be any number you want, independently, without any tie to a specific proportion.

With your space in mind, go ahead and enter the desired width and height of your custom LED display in total feet. For this example, we’ll enter 10 ft wide, by 5 feet high.

Step 3: Review the Specs

At this point, we’ve entered all the pertinent information for building our LED screen. Now, you’ll be able to review in real-time all of your Screen’s specs in the table. Here’s what’s shown and a quick description:

  • Total Area: This is the total area of your screen, calculated in square feet
  • Total Panels Required: Based on your screen size and panel selection, this is how many panels we’ll need to create this sized screen
  • Total Width: Because the panel size cannot meet your exact width/height, this is the calculated actual width of your screen shown in number of panels and feet
  • Total Height: Same as width, this is the actual size of your screen in number of panels and feet
  • Screen Resolution: Based on your Series, pixel pitch and size of screen, this is the resolution of your LED screen in pixels
  • Total Weight: This is the weight, in pounds, of your screen
  • Max Power Draw: Energy consumption required of your LED screen

The best part of our LED screen builder is if you are not happy with any of the outputs shown in your specs, you can go back to your screen width and height and tweak it until you’re happy with the result. Every calculation is done in real-time, making it incredibly easy and fast to play with.

You can even switch Series, change the Pixel Pitch, and enter as many different size configurations your heart desires — there’s truly no limit!

Step 4: Get Instant Pricing

Say you’ve gotten your LED screen exactly how you want it, now is when you can get the LED screen cost! Just enter your Name and Email, and then hit “Price My Screen” — from here you’ll be taken directly to the Success page that will look like this:

As you can see, this gives you a snapshot once again of your custom LED screen, and then an Estimated Screen Cost below that.

Keep in mind, this does not include any accessories, taxes, installation and delivery — but it gives you a great idea of a starting point on your custom screen.
