How Long is 100,000 Hours?

The typical lifetime of LEDs used in Leyard and Planar’s LED display solutions is 100,000 hours. That means that if you turn on a Leyard DirectLight LED video wall right now, the LED display will run for 100,000 before it achieves half-brightness (and will continue to run beyond that, of course).

Let’s put it all into perspective:

  • 100,000 hours is over 11 years
  • 100,000 hours is over 595 weeks
  • 100,000 hours is over 4,000 days

What could you do in 100,000 hours?

  • You could watch over 66,666 soccer matches.
  • You could drive from Los Angeles, California to New York, New York 2,439 times.
  • You could have 5,660 Star Wars movie marathons (watching all 8 movies that have been released to date).
  • You could watch 100,000 American football games.
  • You could walk all the way across Europe 138 times.

Here are some things our customers do with the 100,000 hour lifetime of an LED display:

  • Monitor real-time operations in a control room.
  • Display advertising and brand content.
  • Present company information to visitors in executive briefing centers or board rooms.
  • Film and distribute news content in front of a broadcast set design.
