Outdoor Digital Signage
There are plenty of challenges when applying outside digital signage but despite this more and more digital screens are being built out to make the most of the higher audience numbers these outside digital advertising screens can generate. While the most obvious obstacle for carrying a industrial grade LCD display outdoors is protecting it from the weather, and in particular rainfall, the problems associated with the sunlight can be equally as difficult to overcome. interactive displays
The problem with the sunlight and outdoor digital signage is that direct sunlight will often make the screen unreadable. Not only can sunlight cause warmth (you should know what that’s like when you attempt to see the TV at home during the summer months where quite often you are forced to shut the curtain to watch the display obviously ) but even when there’s absolutely no warmth in bright sunlight the display will appear dim and difficult to read. But there are methods to ensure the display is as readable as you can when taken outside:
Ensuring you have the cleverest kind of display potential will go along way to ensuring the display is readable. The brightness of LCD displays is measured in nits (aka candela per square metre). The minimum display brightness for any outside LCD display should be 800 nits but LCD with 1000+ nits are available and should be considered when seeking to get into outdoor digital signage. It should also be mentioned that in general industrial screens have higher nit values and are better suited for outdoor signage displays.
Preventing glare is done in a number of ways. Regrettably, whichever way you select this there probably will be some drop-off in brightness. Direct sunlight can cause more problems than simply glare too. Screen burn can grow if sunlight is constantly on it either the outside digital display ought to be turned away from sunlight another solution to protect against this display burn ought to be looked at such as cooling the display itself.
A great deal of content which works well in indoor places does not respond well to be taken outside. Use colors and designs which are more prominent in outdoor places. There is often a great deal of trial and error involved in this but assess what works and what does not and you should soon develop a flare for designing material that’s suitable for outdoor digital signage.
