As a component of 5G smart light poles, these LED light pole screens are not only high-definition and bright, but also equipped with brightness Intelligent functions such as automatic adjustment, remote one-button power off, multi-screen synchronous playback, temperature-controlled intelligent heat dissipation, and intelligent IP broadcasting. The Chinese company Liantronics supplied more than 430 square meters of small-pitch LED screens to help Al Araby TV in Qatar’s Lusail New City to build a technologically-sounding news studio and interview studio.
Professional services escort world-class events
Today, sports events and LED displays can be described as the “best partner”. With the help of LED displays, sports event information can be presented in a timely manner; the whole game and exciting moments can be displayed in high definition; The event creates more value; the real-time interaction of the fans at the scene can be presented, pushing the atmosphere of the scene to a climax.

The average temperature in summer can reach 40°C, even in December, the average temperature is as high as 15°C~24°C.
