An LED screen trailer, also referred to as a mobile video wall or jumbotron, is a video wall that is permanently constructed onto a trailer to allow mobility. In contrast, modular LED screens need to be constructed onsite then torn down and loaded onto a truck to be moved.
Mobile video walls are designed with fast setup and simple operation in mind – saving time, money, labor personnel, and headache. They typically include onboard power, production, and audio. Simply unhook the trailer, turn on the generator, and hit play for a full LED production. If you rent the screen – your onsite technician will handle this. But if you purchase one – you can breathe easy knowing that just about anyone can set one up and operate it.
As events transition outdoors due to the novel coronavirus, mobile jumbotron displays are becoming an increasingly popular option for capturing a large outdoor audience with minimal operating costs.
Here are 26 ways to wow the crowd with an LED screen trailer.
Socially Distanced Drive-Ins
Take any event to the parking lot. Stagger parking spaces to every-other spot to allow 6 feet of space at concerts, tailgates, graduations, worship events, and more. Sync the display production with an FM radio station so attendees can tune into the audio.
Raise money for your event or cause. Display calls to action to encourage raising funds such as real-time donation tickers and sponsor signage.
Add to the excitement of fairs, carnivals, art, music, religious, and food festivals with mobile LED screen.
LED screens are the perfect way to gather the community. Bring the people together for movies at the park, watch parties or other city-based events.
Zoom in on the performance and broadcast it to the audience to give every crowd member a front-row view. You can also incorporate on-screen visuals to create a captivating live production.
Why settle for a 60” tailgate TV when you can have a 200” video wall?
Sports Watch Parties
No tickets? No problem. Tune in to the game on the big screen. Onboard DISH and WIFI let you easily tap into the game feed.
Display movies on the big screen night or day. LED technology shines bright enough to be seen clearly under direct sunlight. No need for the sun to set for the big showing. You can live stream the movie via onboard WIFI or load up a DVD / Blu-ray disc.
High Shool Sports
Track meets, football, soccer, and tennis are just a few examples. Display scoring, video, and messaging to students and spectators.
Display signage and live camera feeds of speakers at political rallies.
Be heard by broadcasting your message to the masses – LED video walls were designed to do just that. As an added bonus you can hook up a microphone to the onboard PA system.
Outdoor Trade Shows
Set your booth apart from the other exhibitors. LED displays encourage foot traffic and give you the ability to deliver your brand to the masses at trade shows.
Sports, campus events, and outdoor lectures are just a few ways colleges can benefit from LED screen trailers.
Tow your mobile video wall down the street at parades while displaying dynamic, crowd-capturing content.

Employee seminars, conferences, holiday parties, appreciation events, trade shows, and company retreats are all examples of corporate events that utilize LED screen trailers to broadcast content to their employees.
Rather than having a permanent LED sign constructed outside of your business, consider using a mobile screen. This gives you the flexibility to reposition the screen or even take it offsite for special events. Showcase products, promotions, announcements, and more outside of your business with a mobile screen.
Use your screen as a mobile digital billboard to display directional signage, messages, and company branding by perching the screen on the side of the road.
As grad parties transition toward outdoor settings, LED screen trailers are great for uniting students, teachers, and their families while celebrating their big day. Display virtual yearbooks, student slides, and live video simulcasting.

Whether your business is expanding, moving, having an anniversary, or celebrating another important milestone, add to the excitement and generate buzz with a large outdoor LED screen.
