Over the past several years Guangzhou, a city of long history and gigantic proportions, acquired a completely new look. New highways criss-cross the city, high-speed trains arrive to new rail terminals and of course a new exhibition hall overwhelms visitors by enormous size. Large international exhibitions are now conducted in Guangzhou practically non-stop. Naturally, we are only interested in events related directly or indirectly with digital and LED technologies. Guangzhou is definitely becoming a prominent site for these events: previously international visitors used to travel to Taipei (Taiwan) or Hong Kong, but nowadays trade shows in those cities are dwarfed by the event in the neighbor city of Guangzhou.
LED China 2013 Trade Show covers all aspects of production and maintenance of LED screens, manufacture of components (from LED drivers and power supplies, plastic for modules and metal for cabinets), screen assembly (of every shape and form), software solutions (development of control systems and software packages), integration solutions (frequently presented by European or US companies). A separate pavilion features manufacturing for LED production, packaging and testing; SMD machines for PCB assembly, metal cutting, bending and soldering  for manufacture of cabinets and support structures of all sizes.
Practically all companies offer LED screens of three types:
For outdoor permanent installations (strong support structures, enhanced cabinets, high-brightness LEDs,plastic with water resistant and anti-vandal properties, etc.);
Rental LED screens (low weight aluminum cabinets, fast assembly structures, etc.);
For indoor installation (LEDs of lower brightness, low weight and extra thin cabinets, tight pitch of pixels, etc.).
At present large companies entered a race of making LED screens with progressively tighter pitch. Theoretically, this is an important task. It’s a laudable wish to create a LED screen than matches TV screen in resolution. Today there appear test models of LED screens with 1.9 or even 1.5 mm pitch at various exhibitions. But let us no forget about the practicality of this research. Large outdoor screen does not need such tight pitch. On a smaller indoor screen such resolution will lead to excessive screen price. Therefore when choosing a LED screen we should not jump at the newest and latest but should be more conservative in our choice: look for a screen that fully conforms to business requirements an not to the idealistic picture of what modern screen may be. Otherwise, even a small screen may become exorbitantly expensive.
2-3 years ago only a handful of companies was able to manufacture a curved screen. However the technology of LED strips (transparent, light-weight curtains ideal for media façade installations) progressed drastically. The result was that companies started experimenting with unusual an non-standard forms, separated module into strips with LED pixels of varying thickness). As a result, practically, every screen manufacturer can offer straight or curved (convex or concave) screens of different sizes and resolutions.
Engineers are thinking – and suddenly you have LED pixels soldered not on a rigid PCB but on a flexible rubber-based PCB. These rubber modules have certain advantages – lower weight, no rust, flexibility. Low eight allowed to make one more innovation: to combine rubber strips with magnets. As a result, installation of these rubber-magnetized modules becomes easy in areas that are hard to reach.
