About LED Message Boards
LED message boards, or Electronic Message Centers (EMCs) are computerized programmable electronic visual communication devices, specially manufactured for the outside environment. They are capable of storing and displaying multiple messages in dozens of formats and at varying intervals. Electronic Message Boards (as they are sometimes referred to as well) allow you to change your message frequently, but without the cost of replacing missing or broken letters, and without the physical labor involved in changing copy. Thus, LED signs allow you to communicate more effectively with the typical person passing by at a particular time day by changing the message and graphic of your sign to match the profile on the street. Outdoor Electronic Message Center cabinets are specially produced to withstand the harshest outside environment like snow, rain and direct sunlight. They are also able to compete with the sun due to the use of ultra-bright LEDs. The signs come in a host of resolutions, referred to as mil. The smaller the mil number, the higher the resolution. A 9 mil sign will have near TV quality, while a 19 mil sign is better viewed from around 60 feet. We have full color and monochrome (orange, white, or red).
LED Message Boards FAQ
Are there any restrictions on the content for LED Message Boards?
Yes. Almost all communities regulate what can be displayed on the boards. Everything from content, to the number of times the display can change, whether the message can flash, the colors that can be used if it does flash, to how bright the display is are all governed by local municipal code.
I have an earlier generation EMC (electronic message board)that is starting to act up. Can I have it upgraded to a new design?
These signs can always be retrofitted with upgraded electronics. Whether the existing sign can handle the newer electronics tends to be a problem with most signs. If the sign has any type of cabinet, a certain amount of fabrication will be needed, which can get expensive. Most times it is more cost efficient to replace the entire cabinet and integrate the new electronics in the new sign.
Do the new EMC’s require a separate power run?
Most communities regulate this issue and while the new boards operate on a fraction of the power of the old boards, most still require that the sign sit on a dedicated circuit. Our licensed electricians review the community codes prior to connecting the new sign and pulling all necessary permits.
