LED Video wall resale values?
« on: September 20, 2017, 05:15:24 pm »



Hi everyone,

Not sure if this is the best place to post. We are about to purchase a new LED wall for our venue. This will be the 3rd one in 11 years. We've been getting about 4 years out of them until they start to have issues. We than limp through that last year making repairs. So far, we have done two install screens. This is an outdoor (covered) environment.

I'm considering going with a touring style screen, complete with cases. Mainly, because I feel they're built a bit stronger but more so because we could possibly sell every three years on the used market. Which leads to my question. How is the used market for touring LED walls? Does brand matter? Absen, Panasonic vs something like Chauvet or Elation?

After moderate use, what percentage of the new price would be reasonable to ask for a used screen? Keep in mind it won't be put up and taken down constantly like a typical touring screen.

Thank you!

pretty saturated due to the rapidly changing technology

it absolutely does, although resolution typically matters more. There's not much of a resale value for 10mm + LED wall these days, given the cheap price of comparable 6mm or less products

while less physical wear and tear on the panels, it's likely that an installed screen will have more useage on it than a touring product. Realistically, you're probably looking at 30-40% resale value if sold in under 5 years. Less if longer or if there's a more advanced product that comes out. We've come pretty close to the pinnacle of LED video resolution, with walls available down to 1/2mm pitches there's not too much smaller that they can go
