Pixel Dance Floor VS. LED Screen Floor

Apr 25, 2024 | Product Guides

When discussing Pixel dance floors and LED screen floor, many people generally refer to them as LED floor tiles, but in fact, they differ in appearance, connection and installation methods, effects, control methods, and cost. This article will deeply analyze the differences between pixel floor tiles and LED screen floor to help you find the floor tile that you really want to buy and that truly suits your needs.

1.What Is Pixel Dance Floor?

An LED pixel dance floor is a type of floor tile embedded with LEDs, where the panel’s appearance typically features neatly arranged small dots (pixels) with relatively wide spacing between them. The built-in LEDs can illuminate, allowing the dance floor to create simple patterns, text effects, and a variety of RGB colors.

1.1 Main Features

Highly Customizable Effects:
Pixel dance floors can display a rich variety of dance floor effects, such as simple patterns, twinkling starlight, RGB color gradients, and text effects. You can customize patterns, dynamic effects, and colors according to their own needs, tailoring them to specific themes or event requirements.

Load Bearing Capacity:
The Pixel dance floor boasts a robust gravity bearing capacity, typically ranging from 300-600kg. Various manufacturers opt for different floor tiles and panel materials for their dance floor tiles, resulting in varying load capacities.

Among the LED dance floor tiles in the industry, the highest gravity-bearing capacity is found in TOP DANCE’s LED dance floor. This can be attributed to the utilization of ABS plastic chassis and 10mm tempered glass for the joint, as the strength is determined by the materials chosen.

LED Source:
Each pixel dance floor tile is embedded with small LEDs, allowing for control over the color and brightness of each LED. This enables the creation of various patterns and dynamic effects. These LEDs are commonly more energy-efficient and boast a long lifespan. A top-notch LED light can typically last up to 50,000 hours!

1.2 Control and Installation

Control System:
The control methods for pixel floor tiles are quite flexible. In addition to traditional DMX and computer controls, most pixel floor tiles on the market now feature wireless remote control. This method offers high flexibility and allows for control from a significant distance, with simple button presses to switch effects.

Moreover, the most advanced control systems of pixel dance floor on the market have reached the next level. TOP DANCE’s pixel dance floor tiles can be controlled via a tablet, where users can select the required installation size directly (such as 20×20 ft, 16×16 ft, 24×24 ft), enter text effects, and choose pattern effects right on the tablet.

Installation Flexibility:
Pixel dance floor come with wired connections and magnetic connections, with the latter having become the mainstream in the pixel dance floor market. LED dance floors can be assembled in just one second, and a 20×20 ft set can be installed in 15 minutes. This floor tile design allows for easy assembly and disassembly, making it suitable for temporary events or permanent displays.

TOP DANCE has achieved a full industry lead with the advanced version of magnetic dance floors, the battery magnetic dance floor. It is the only company that can achieve an installation without the need to connect a single wire, making it extremely convenient.

1.3 Main Applications

It is commonly used to create dynamic ground effects and is suitable for venues such as dance halls, nightclubs, and banquet halls, making it a popular choice for events like weddings, parties, coming-of-age ceremonies, and DJ activities.

2.What Is LED Screen Floor?

An LED screen floor is essentially an LED screen that can be placed on the ground and withstand being stepped on. It directly displays images, videos, and dynamic visual effects on the ground. Combining the advantages of both LED displays and LED floor tiles, it can, like other LED screens, feature different pixel modules to present various picture qualities and play a variety of image and video formats. Additionally, like other LED dance floors, it can be used on the floor, incorporated into event venue setups, and display engaging visual effects.

2.1 Main Features

Exceptional Strength and Capacity:
The LED floor screen design must be able to withstand the weight of passing crowds and even the pressure of the various equipment used in the show. The strongest load-bearing capacity of 2000kg/sqm can be realized.

Interactive Effects and:
With built-in sensors, the LED floor screen responds to body movements such as steps and jumps to increase your interaction. With high refresh rates and high-definition output, our floors offer stunning visual displays.

Enduring Radiance
LED screen floor stands out for its high-quality LEDs and robustness, offering a lifespan of up to 100,000 hours.

2.2 Control and Installation

Control System
The system for controlling LED floor displays is usually complex, allowing for remote or close-range control of content playback, and supports multiple input sources.

Installation Method
LED floor displays require cable connections between the panels, as well as the installation of the panels and support feet at the base. Overall, the installation time is relatively long, but the process is relatively straightforward.

2.3 Main Applications

This type of equipment is particularly suitable for locations that require strong visual impact and interactive experiences, such as concerts, TV studios, exhibitions, and commercial events.

3.What Are the Differences Between LED Screen Floor & Pixel Dance Floor?

3.1 Appearance

In terms of appearance, pixel dance floors and LED floor displays are completely different. A pixel dance floor typically features larger spaced dots, resembling traditional floor tiles, and is shaped like a square casing with its own frame. On the other hand, the appearance of an LED floor display is more akin to an LED screen; its panel is composed of modules, forming a continuous large display area that looks like a single large screen with no obvious separation between the edges. Additionally, it includes adjustable support feet underneath.

3.2 Installation Way

In terms of installation, magnetic connections are the mainstream method for assembling dance floors, providing an intuitive, simple, and quick setup. In contrast, the installation of LED floor displays is somewhat more complex, as it involves connecting panels with cables, generally requiring more time to set up. Magnetic pixel dance floors can be installed in just a few minutes—for a 20×20 ft area, it only takes about fifteen minutes—whereas LED floor displays might take about an hour. Therefore, for temporary events, pixel floor tiles have a clear advantage in terms of speed and ease of installation.

3.3 Effects Display

Regarding the display of effects, LED floor displays can present a richer variety of effects compared to pixel floor tiles. It’s akin to the images played on a computer, such as high-definition videos and complex images, which can be displayed one-to-one on an LED floor display. In contrast, pixel dance floors are limited to relatively simple patterns, text, and color changes, and cannot achieve the same effects as LED floor displays.

3.4 Control Method

In terms of control methods, pixel floor tiles offer a variety of options, including wireless remote and tablet controls, as well as DMX and computer controls. LED floor displays, on the other hand, can only be controlled via computer.

3.5 Application

In fact, the applications of both are quite similar; they can be used in dance halls, nightclubs, banquet halls, and other venues, making them popular choices for weddings, parties, coming-of-age ceremonies, and DJ events. However, for one-time events, pixel dance floors can be installed more quickly and are thus more suitable. On the other hand, LED floor displays are better suited for locations that require a strong visual impact and interactive experience, such as concerts, TV studios, exhibitions, and commercial events.
