Q1) What is an LED media facade?

An LED media facade, also known as an LED video wall or LED display, is a large-scale display technology that uses Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) to create dynamic visual content, graphics, animations, and videos on the exterior of buildings or other structures. These installations are commonly seen on the facades of commercial buildings, stadiums, theaters, and other high-traffic areas.
