Outdoor Digital Signage
There are lots of challenges when implementing outdoor digital signage however despite this more and more electronic screens are being erected out to take advantage of their higher audience numbers these outside digital advertising screens can generate. While the most obvious challenge for taking a industrial grade LCD display outdoors is shielding it from the weather, and specifically rain, the issues associated with the sun can be just as difficult to overcome. interactive displays
The problem with the sun and outdoor electronic signage is the direct sunlight will often make the screen unreadable. Not only can sun cause glare (you must know what that is like when you try and see the TV at home throughout the summertime where quite often you’re forced to shut the curtain to watch the screen obviously ) but even when there is absolutely no glare in bright sunlight the screen will look dim and difficult to read. However there are ways to ensure the screen is as easy as possible when taken outdoors:
Assuming you’ve the cleverest kind of screen potential will go along way to making sure the screen is readable. The brightness of LCD screens is measured in nits (aka candela per square metre). The minimum screen brightness for any outside LCD display should be 800 nits however LCD with 1000+ nits are available and must be taken into account when seeking to get into external electronic signage. It should also be noted that in general industrial screens have higher nit values and are better suited for outdoor signage screens.
Preventing glare is done in a number of ways. Optical bondng, anti-reflective glass and tinting are only some choices. Regrettably, whichever way you select this there most likely will be a few drop-off in brightness. Direct sunlight may cause more issues than simply glare too. Screen burn can grow if the sun is continually on it so either the outside digital screen ought to be turned off from the sun another solution to prevent this screen burn ought to be considered such as cooling the screen .
Bespoke Outdoor Content
A lot of content that works well in indoor places does not respond well to be taken outdoors. Use colours and designs that are more prominent in outdoor places. There’s often a great deal of trial and error involved with this but assess what works and what does not and you should soon develop a teaser for designing material that is acceptable for outdoor electronic signage.
