OUTDOOR CINEMA SCREEN HIRE

CRYSTAL CLEAR OUTDOOR LED CINEMA SCREENS FOR HIRE

Thus far, the 2020s have been the decade of the outdoor cinema experience. While the previous issues surrounding public health may have driven up demand for drive-in and outdoor cinema experiences, these magical events have earnt a stellar reputation in their own right. Over the last few years, thousands of moviegoers have enjoyed the combination of the silver screen and the great outdoors for the very first time.

 

Suppose you are thinking of capitalising on this demand by hosting an outdoor cinema event. In that case, you're going to need to hire an outdoor LED screen capable of delivering the goods to ensure your screening is a resounding success. So what factors do you need to be considering before pulling the trigger?

 

+CONSIDERATIONS FOR HIRING AN OUTDOOR CINEMA SCREEN FOR YOUR EVENT

 

First and foremost, you need to consider the quality of the LED screen you intend to hire. A lot of event organisers rush into hiring a mobile outdoor LED screen solution that is attached to some kind of vehicle. Unfortunately, while these may be cheaper options, they are priced that way for a reason, chief among which is the picture quality. So let's start there. 

+CHECK THE PIXEL PITCH (SCREEN RESOLUTION) OF YOUR LED SCREEN

 

You need to investigate the pixel pitch of any LED screen you hire. The lower the distance (measured in millimetres) between the LEDs, the closer to the screen your viewers can get without being able to see the individual nodes and the higher the quality of the screen resolution. Many events companies offer LED screens with 6mm, 9mm, or even 12mm pixel pitches. That's fine if you are hiring an LED screen for a music festival where fans can be 20+ metres away, but no good for event organisers trying to create the ultimate outdoor cinema event.

 

You can roughly translate the millimetre measurement into the number of metres away your viewers will have to be from the screen in order not to suffer a tainted viewing experience. Here at On Tour Events, our screens boast 3.9mm pixel pitch which means you can seat people just 3-4 metres away and they won't have any issues whatsoever. That's nearly double the resolution of many other UK-based LED screen hire outfits.  

+PAY ATTENTION TO THE SIZE OF YOUR LED CINEMA SCREEN

Another important consideration is the size of your size. While you might be inclined to think bigger is better (why wouldn't you?!), it's vital to remember that the dimensions you choose have to match up to the aspect ratio of your content.

 

The most common aspect ratio formats are 4:3 and 16:9, and so it makes sense to hire an outdoor LED screen with dimensions that can accommodate these requirements. Otherwise, you will be left with an awkward-looking setup with black strips on either side of the screen, wasting your LED screen's potential.

+MAKE SURE YOU ARE HIRING AN IP65-RATED LED SCREEN

 

Next, since your outdoor cinema experience is, well, outdoors, you have to ensure that the LED screen you hire has enough resistance to the elements. There's no such thing as a sure thing when it comes to the British weather, so you need to make sure that your LED screen is at least IP 65-rated (as ours are), which means they are developed specifically to work in high moisture environments.

 

Failure to do so could result in your screen failing should the weather take a turn for the worse. The last thing you want to do is have people chasing refunds after only viewing half a film.

 

+DON'T FORGET TO HIRE THE EVENT PRODUCTION EXTRAS

 

In many ways hiring your outdoor LED video wall is just the beginning. What would an outdoor cinema experience be without the booming surround sound to match? How are you going to elevate your screen off the ground to ensure everyone has a great view? If you're hosting an event in a rural setting so as not to disturb residential areas, how are you going to get the necessary power your screen?

 

Thus, you're going to need to hire staging equipmentrent some state-of-the-art sound equipment, and temporarily lease a power generator. Fortunately, here at On Tour Events, we can provide all of the above and more as part of a turn-key outdoor cinema package for your event. We even include the technicians and engineers required to set everything up and dismantle once the event is over.

 

+CONSIDER THE CONTENT STRATEGY FOR YOUR LED SCREEN 

 

If our industry-leading LED screens are one thing, it's versatile. What that means for you as an event organiser is that you have an opportunity to use the screen as far more than just a medium for screening your film.

 

For instance, in the preceding adverts, you could use the screen to display advertising campaigns of your corporate partners and sponsors who will be keen to get in front of your audience. You could generate significant revenue from such an arrangement which could help to offset the investment made in hiring event production equipment.

 

Likewise, you could use the screen as digital signage, reminding your guests to follow specific protocols such as turning their phones off or remaining in their vehicles. Alternatively, if you have an intermission, you could use your LED screen as a Twitter wall to encourage online engagement and generate a buzz around your outdoor cinema event. The choice is yours. But a well-planned content strategy can have numerous benefits for your event.
