Programmable, Scrolling LED Signs
Indoor Programmable LED Signs
These signs are the pefect brightness level for viewing indoors, and offer a cost savings over our "semi-outdoor" windowfront models. They are not bright enough for use in a window.View Indoor Signs
Window Front Programmable LED Signs:
These signs come with extra-bright "LAMP" style leds that are visible in direct sunlight. Placed in your front window, they can be viewed from outdoors.View Window Signs
Outdoor Programmable LED Signs:
We carry an very popular line of lightweight and inexpensive outdoor LED signs. Nothing gets noticed like an outdoor programmable sign.View Outdoor Signs
A word on pricing: Pricing for these signs will vary based on several factors, including brightness, number of colors, and the total number of LEDs in the sign. Scroll to the bottom of the page for more information.
A scrolling led sign from brightledsigns.com will get attention and drive more people to your business. They are highly visible, and of course, can be customized with a variety of messages, graphics, and effects like flashing, scrolling, wipes and fades. We carry a wide variety of sizes, colors, and types of programmable led signs to cover just about any need.
The programmable signs are lightweight, durable, and easy to program. Our scrolling signs come with either a simple "TV-like" remote control or computer software and cables to program the sign...in fact, many of the signs come with both. Check the individual product pages for details.
Once programmed, the signs have memory that will hold your messages for months, even with the power off. Installation is a snap, since each sign comes complete with brackets or other mounting hardware.
On pricing: Several factors determine the quality and price of your sign. The most important of these are brightness, pixel, pitch, matrix, and color:
- Brightness: Indoor signs use a type of LED that is less bright than the ones used for windowfront and outdoor signs. This is why an indoor sign is generally less expensive than other types of signs. However, they are not bright enough to be used in direct sunlight, and therefore aren't recommended for placement in a window.
- Pixel: A pixel is a cluster of 1 or more LED’s. Single color signs will have 1 or more LED’s of the same color. 3 color signs have 2 different colors per pixel. When both light together, a third color is formed (a red and green pixel lit together appear yellow). Full color signs leverage red, green and blue LED’s, which combine to make an infinite number of colors. Whether monochrome or color, more LED's per pixel generally create a brighter and more readable sign.
- Pitch: The pitch for a sign is the distance, in millimeters, between each pixel. If you have a sign with a 15mm pitch, then means that there are fifteen millimeters from the center of one pixel to the next closest pixel. The smaller, or "tighter", the pitch, the more more total LEDs in the sign. A tighter pitch delivers a clearer picture, much in the same way that an High Definition Television has a clearer picture than an old tube style TV.
- Matrix: The matrix represents how many pixels high, and how many pixels wide, your sign is. A sign with a matrix resolution of 16h by 96w means it has 16 pixels from top to bottom and 128 pixels from left to right. Generally, a sign needs 7 or 8 pixels of height to display one line of text, 16 to display 2 lines, 24 to display 3 lines, and so on. If you are using 7 or 8 pixel high lines, a width of 60 pixels allows you to display 10 characters, 80 pixels allows for 13 characters, and so on. And, with graphics instead of words, the higher the matrix, the more realistic the graphics.
- Color: As described in the "pixel" section, 3 color signs require 2 different colors of LEDs, and full color signs require 3 or more different colors of LEDs. Thus, color signs are generally more expensive than single color signs.
