From watching games from afar and sometimes through binoculars, you can now experience more interactive game-watching. And one of the elements that make watching sports live more thrilling and enjoyable is the scoreboard LED screens. LED displays keep you updated about the game, wherever you are in the venue. 

From NBA games to football matches, watching sports has evolved throughout the years. Research shows that the majority of people today prefer watching games outside of sports venues. With technological advancement, many prefer live viewing in the comfort of their own homes. However, the truth is that nothing beats watching sports live with your own eyes looking at the players. 

LED scoreboards have become the standard for many sports venues. They have become a convenient element in many sports games to fully satisfy the viewing experience of fans watching the games live. Because of these LED displays, watching sports matches live is now more engaging than ever. 

What Is an LED Scoreboard Screen?

A scoreboard LED display is a device integrated with LED technology to assist in displaying information about a specific game on a massive screen. These can be seen in locations where sports matches are often held. 

Technically, LED scoreboards display the current score in the game but they’ve evolved since then and are now multi-functional and can show other details about the game. More than just the real-time scores, the screens also show game statistics, replays, and highlights. Commercials and advertisements are also shown on the displays, along with announcements and important notices. 

Features of a Scoreboard LED Display

To get to know LED scoreboard screens better, here are some of the most common features in these LED scoreboards. 

Thin & Lightweight Structure

These displays are designed to have a thin and lightweight structure. They are also often matched with LED cabinets structured with lightweight designs. This saves a lot of costs in terms of delivery and installation. 

High Protection Level

LED scoreboard screens have a high level of protection since they are designed to be durable enough to operate outdoors. They have an IP65 protection level, making sure that the scoreboard is waterproof and protected from weather elements that can damage the device. 

High Refresh Rate

These LED displays are guaranteed to have a fast refresh rate to ensure that live streaming is possible without the panels flickering when the panels are changing. This rate can reach up to 3840HZm, which makes sure that no flickers can be seen. 

Fine Pixel Pitch 

LED scoreboard screens feature fine pixel pitches that showcase vibrant and colorful images. With these specs, viewers can enjoy smooth transitions of replays and highlight plays. P10 LED scoreboards make an incredible option for arenas. 

Types of LED Scoreboards to Consider

LED scoreboards also come in different varieties. In the past, monochromatic scoreboards with two colors reigned supreme. Today, full-color LED screens function as scoreboards and have become a common sight. Two of the categories you can find to differentiate the variety of LED scoreboard types are installation and sports. 

Scoreboard LED Display Types Based on Installation 

The installation of the LED scoreboard screens needs to be strategic for the optimal running of the games that will use them. Here are some of the major installations for these LED displays:

Besides screens for scores, they can also accommodate ads and live streaming of the game. These scoreboards are often used outdoors so they have a high protection level to boast about.  

Center-hung LED Scoreboards

Scoreboard LED Display Types Based on Sports

Finally, LED scoreboards can be categorized based on the specific sports they are often used in. The most common and popular types of LED scoreboard screens based on the sports they’re used in are the following:
