LED/Videotron P2.6 vs P3.9 Rental Panel: What Sets Them Apart

A NEW and improved! LED P2.6 Panel Module have been added to our stock. Let’s zoom in on the comparison between P2.6 and P3.9 LED panel module to see what sets them apart.

What makes LED P2.6 and P3.9 so different?

Being the most critical component of an LED screen display resolution, we designate a panel module as P2, P2.6, P3.9, etc, consisting of the letter “P” followed by a number.

In this case, the letter stands for Pixel Pitch, with the number indicating the precise distance measured in millimetres. 

The gap between a pixel’s centre and its neighbour’s centre is indicated by pixel pitch; a bigger pixel pitch shows more space between pixels, which ultimately determines the pixel density and display resolution.

Smaller pixel pitches mean more pixels or better resolution; by this, you can calculate the best value for your money when selecting the most appropriate module.

Take a look at this specification table

You can see how different both panel modules are, with P2.6 leading in quality. Now, how can we know this?

How to find Screen Resolution of LED Screen

TV Hisense 65 inch UHD 4K Resolution

Have you ever bought a TV and found the number 2K or 4K outside the box packaging? Whenever you buy a TV or LED display, there will always be a number indicating the resolution of a screen. The number of pixels between the axis on your display devices is known as screen resolution. 

The format is typically known as width x height; for example, you have heard the number 1920 x 1080; this indicates that there are 1920 pixels in width and 1080 pixels in height or a total of 2,073,600 pixels on screen.

Having a higher resolution monitor means higher pixels, and you can be sure the material displayed on the screen will be crisper and more apparent the higher the display resolution.  

We can apply the the specification from before to the following LED screen, for example.

LED P2.6 Screen Size 3m x 2m

This screen size alone is 3m x 2m (Width x Height) using the module LED P2.6. 

We know the Pixel pitch of the module is at “192px x 192px”, now if we calculate by using this formula:

Screen resolution = Module quantity x Module resolution

We can find the resolution of the screen.

First, we must obtain the module resolution on each side of the module; previously, we knew that “P” represents “Pixel pitch”; therefore, P2.6 has a pixel of “2.6”.

Tip: This goes to every module, whether it is P.10 or P3.9

Once we know the pixel pitch, we can calculate the Module Resolution by dividing each side of the module (500mm x 500mm).

Module resolution = Module side: Pixel pitch

              = 500mm : 2.6

   = 192px


Since both sides have the same size, we can conclude that the Module resolution of a P2.6 is (192px x 192px).

Now, to obtain how many modules are needed on each side of the screen, we use the following formula:

Module quantity = Module side : Pixel pitch


To obtain the Module height quantity, we convert the Pixel pitch from mm to m (500mm = 0.5m); afterwards, we can calculate as shown:

Module height quantity = 3m : 0.5m

                                             = 6 Modules

This process also goes to the width of the screen:

Module width quantity = 2m : 0.5m

                                             = 4 Modules

Afterwards, we can then calculate the resolution using the previous formula.

Screen resolution = Module quantity x Module resolution

Say if a screen has 3m x 2m in size and needs 6 x 4 modules, therefore:

 Screen height resolution = 6 x 192px

                                          = 1152px

  Screen width resolution = 4 x 192px

                                        = 768px

To conclude, we have “1152 px x 768 px” in resolution.

Of course, this formula can calculate other types of modules. In comparison to the P3.9, the total pixel of the screen in the same size would be 768px x 512px or, in other words, smaller than the P2.6.

How to choose the right LED module

Now, when it comes to choosing the suitable module for you, we have to go back to the main question: “What is the LED screen for?” 

When it comes to quality, we will always say LED P2.6 always have better quality compared to the P3.9; however, it does not mean you have to choose this type of module every time, depending on the functionality of your usage.

It is important to see that LED P3.9 can still finish the job. Even the most common module used in conferences, meetings, concerts, and parties in Bali is the LED P3.9 itself. You can find more details about this on our previous blog: LED Screen for first renter: 5 Things you need to know.

Then, when should I choose the LED P2.6?

If you have the budget, why not?

The LED Panel Module P2.6 are often used for its modular design, easy installation, and adaptability making them popular for rental. You will be sure to get the greatest results for it is the top module used for permanent installation and has the best resolution in the industry.
