LED façade and screens

Below the LED Wall specifications
The Ahoy LED façade is 900 x 150 pixels. The margins are 62 pixels left and right and 10 pixels above. These margins are included in the template. Note: do not make video material as 900 x 150 pixels. Always use the template and a resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels. This is because the hardware used in the LED façade extracts the pixels from the 1024 x 768 frame including the margins and dimensions as stated in the template. You can download the template from our website: template.psd This is a Photoshop file, containing three masks:

1) Example Mask
In this mask you will find the pixels that you will actually see on the façade. Due to the proportions, there may be a slight difference. Only the transparent elements are visible. You should also bear in mind that there are some sections of the sides where there are no LED lamps.

2) Mask 900 x 150 pixels
You can use this mask to view the margins on the façade.

3) Video Mask
You can use this mask to render the final video. Because of the size of the file, we advise you to also apply the Video Mask to your images before making the final video.
