Outdoor Digital Signage
There are lots of challenges when applying outside digital signage however despite this more and more electronic screens are being built outside to take advantage of their greater audience numbers these outside digital advertising screens can generate. While the most obvious obstacle for taking a commercial grade LCD screen outside is shielding it from the weather, and specifically rainfall, the issues connected with the sunlight can be just as hard to overcome.

The issue with the sunlight and outdoor electronic signage is the direct sunlight will frequently make the screen unreadable. Not only can sunlight cause warmth (you should know what that is like when you attempt to watch the TV at home during the summertime where quite often you’re forced to shut the curtain to see the screen obviously ) but even if there is no warmth in bright sunlight the screen will look dim and hard to see. However there are ways to ensure the screen is as readable as possible when taken outside:
Ensuring you have the cleverest kind of screen possible will go along way to making sure the screen is readable. The brightness of LCD displays is measured in nits (aka candela per square metre). The minimum screen brightness for any outside LCD screen should be 800 nits however LCD using 1000+ nits are available and should be considered when looking to get into outdoor digital signage. It should also be mentioned that in general commercial screens have greater nit values and are better suited for outdoor signage displays.
Anti-glare technology Optical bondng, anti-reflective glass and tinting are just some options. Regrettably, no matter which way you go on that there probably will be a few drop-off in brightness. Direct sunlight can cause more issues than simply glare also. Display burn can grow if sunlight is constantly on it so either the outside digital screen ought to be turned away from sunlight another remedy to protect against this screen burn ought to be looked at such as warming the screen .
Bespoke Outdoor Content
A great deal of content that works well in indoor locations doesn’t respond well to be taken outside. Use colours and designs that are more prominent in outdoor locations. There’s frequently a great deal of trial and error involved in this but check what works and what doesn’t and you should soon develop a teaser for designing material that is acceptable for outdoor electronic signage.
