3 Reasons to Choose Signs in Landscape Style

Landscape LED signs are more popular for easier content creation. 

We all get used to watching landscape video shots at 4:3 or 16:9 ratio, such as cinema screen and computer monitors, even we prefer to make rotation when watching videos on mobile. 

In most cases, we recommend to choose landscape style for billboards because of the below advantages.

  • Perfect for large & impressionable video/text, it fits to human’s actual field of vision
  • The viewing area is larger than vertical LED signs if the size is the same, attracting more audience
  • People don’t have to look up to the LED billboard for watching videos/images.
