A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11930603B2) describes a display system that includes a display surface formed from vertically adjacent module rows, each comprising one or more display modules with light-emitting elements. The system utilizes tension members hanging from a support structure to support the display in a hanging manner, with base supporting members providing underlying support to the bottom-most row and vertically adjacent rows above it. Intermediate alignment members guide and align the tension members and display modules, ensuring proper positioning and orientation. The support cabinet partially encloses the interior space, with base supporting members directly connected to the display modules for structural integrity.

Furthermore, the patent details a display system with multiple display surfaces, each formed from vertically adjacent rows of display modules with light-emitting elements. Tension members and base supporting members provide underlying support to the bottom-most rows of each surface, ensuring stability and weight distribution. Intermediate alignment members aid in guiding and aligning components for optimal display performance. The system's design allows for efficient support without the need for additional structures, with the base supporting members serving as the primary support for all display modules. This innovative display system offers a unique approach to supporting multiple display surfaces with a focus on structural integrity and alignment precision.
