In recent years, the LED screen has become an important tool for places of worship, especially those with large congregation churches that put their member’s comfort in mind. As church LED screens or video walls are rapidly growing among churches in Nigeria the visual benefits are worthy of note as they make our services more compelling and entertaining.
Here are a few of the common mistakes to avoid when buying a church LED screen or video wall in Nigeria.
- Mistake of Buying The Wrong Type Of LED Screen Your Church Deserves.
There are two types of LED screen functionalities; Indoor and Outdoor. So in other to get the right desired screen for your congregation usage you must first consider if you need it for Indoor usage or Outdoor.
Both functionalities also come with either Fixed or Mobile capacity. How they designed a Fixed Indoor LED screen is different from the Mobile Indoor LED screen. Although both might have the same resolution, the compartments and panels are different.
Contrary to this, if your worship center is in a room or warehouse, or enclosed auditorium it is advisable to buy Indoor Church LED wall/screen.
Outdoor church LED screen cabinets have added safety features or protections that are not needed in indoor church LED screens. As LED screens designed for outdoor or open yard crusade or church service needs an extra layer of protection against impacts and penetration caused by rain, sand dust, and other hazardous particles.
In summary, the Church LED screen display you need to invest in depends on the environment where it will be installed and used. That’s why it is always good to engage the service of a Professional LED screen consultant to make help you choose the best-LED screen for your church.
2. Mistake of Buying The Wrong LED screen Size or Dimension.
To get the perfect LED screen display for your church you need to consider the size of the auditorium, the congregation, and the closeness of each viewer to the LED screen projection.
To avoid waste of money and ineffective projection from screen to audiences the following important factors are to be considered;
The Budget: LED stage screen prices in Nigeria is not cheap and the recent rise in dollar exchange to naira had made it look expensive. From most of the projects, we have handled the cheapest price budget for the church LED screen project was $7,500 for a 9 square meters screen size. We advised you to always prepare a notable budget for your LED screen project before involving the service of an LED screen consultant.
The Church Size: Secondly, the size of the auditorium where the LED screen will be positioned is also important. Smaller church sizes and congregations may purchase a smaller LED screen display size and the Larger auditorium or church should acquire a Larger LED screen size.
Church Architecture Design: The construction of some church auditorium are likely going to affect the shape and size of the LED screen that would be effective at the worship center. Things like Pillars, dividers, types of Furniture, and other fixtures can obstruct some church members’ views.
Viewing Distance To The Audience: For the most effective Church LED screen usage in any church, the screen must be positioned at a height that will consider the back row seats. The height is usually 1/10 while the screen width is determined by using the aspect ratio.
3. Inadequate Planning Of Power Supply For Your Church LED Screen.
In a Nation like Nigeria where inadequate power supply is predominant, it is important to plan for sufficient power supply along with your plans of buying a Church LED screen for your ministry. However, if your church is currently adequately served by a 50KVA and above diesel-powered generator, you can still accommodate up to 40SQM of LED screen display with full resolution and brightness.
There are two types of LED screen surfaces that determine the power consumption of an LED screen. The DIP and SMD. The DIP consumes much more energy than the SMD (Surface Mounted Diodes) so when buying a Church LED screen in Nigeria, always buy the type that consumes less energy which is the SMD.
4. Mistake of Buying Modules Instead of Cabinets.
Buying a set of modules for your church LED screen project is a long-time mistake that might lead to a waste of investment for your ministry. Modules are smaller components that make one cabinet, so instead of buying one full cabinet, some churches make the mistake of assembling the modules individually, whereby ending in modules breaking down separately without spare parts to fix them.
Our advice is to avoid buying modules separately, as some Chinese manufacturing companies might play smart on your intelligence and convince you to buy cheaper Modules separately and assemble it by yourself, as the total cost will be cheaper compared to cabinets of the same dimension/size. Unfortunately, you will need to pay more for Module configuration and installation and spend more for faulty in the future.
So try as much as possible to avoid the mistake of buying Modules instead of Cabinets.
5. Mistake of Buying a Lower Refresh Rate LED Screen For A Church That Needs High Refresh Rate LED screen
There are two types of LED screen Refresh rates; 3840hz and 1920hz refresh rates.
If your church is a high-impact church that Televises most of your services either online TV or terrestrial television, the type of LED screen to buy is the one with a high refresh rate which is 3840hz because this is the type of LED screen that so clearly through other cameras. That are no water ripples when taking pictures and when viewed on Television by viewers online or at home.
But if your church doesn’t run telecast ministry you can buy the low refresh rate LED screen for your church and 1920Hz is always cheaper than the 3840Hz refresh rate.
6. Mistake of Not Engaging The Service of a Professional LED Screen Consultant before Buying Your Screen.
If you don’t want to commit any of the above mistakes, then you may have to engage the service of a professional LED screen consultant like Virads Media. Buying an LED screen for your church is a big project and it is best handled by professionals, who will analyze your church capacity, the dimension best suitable for you, and the other factors to consider.

2. What Pixel Pitch Is Best For My Church LED Screen Display?
Understanding the term Pixel pitch is a bit technical but if you pay attention, you will have a better understanding. Pixel pitch is responsible for the visual performance of an LED screen display and the clarity of the images the viewers will see.
The pixel pitch and the viewing distance are also directly related, as the smaller the pitch the shorter the viewing distance required to clearly see the images shown on the screen.
In other terms, the closer the viewing distance, the closer the distance between the LED diodes is needed. For indoor LED screens for churches, low pixel pitch is recommended.
