Outdoor Digital Signage
Outdoor Digital Signage
There are plenty of challenges when implementing outdoor digital signage but despite this more and more electronic screens are being built out to make the most of their greater audience numbers these outdoor digital advertising screens can create. While the most obvious challenge for carrying a industrial grade LCD display outdoors is shielding it from the weather, and in particular rain, the problems connected with the sun can be just as hard to overcome. Outdoor Screens
The problem with the sun and outdoor electronic signage is the direct sunlight will frequently make the screen unreadable. Not only can sun cause glare (you must know what that’s like when you try and see the TV at home during the summertime where very often you are forced to close the curtain to see the display clearly) but even if there is absolutely no glare in bright sunlight the display will appear dim and hard to see. But there are methods to ensure the display is as readable as possible when taken outdoors:
Assuming you’ve the brightest type of display potential will go along way to ensuring that the display is readable. The minimum display brightness for any outdoor LCD display should be 800 nits but LCD with 1000+ nits can be found and should be considered when seeking to get into outdoor digital signage. It should also be mentioned that in general industrial screens have greater nit values and therefore are better suited for outdoor signage displays.
Preventing glare is done in many of ways. Sadly, no matter which way you select that there probably will be a few drop-off in brightness. Direct sunlight can cause more problems than just glare also. Screen burn can develop whether sunlight is constantly on it so either the outdoor digital display ought to be turned away from sunlight another solution to prevent this display burn ought to be looked at such as warming the display .
Bespoke Outdoor Content
A lot of content that works well in indoor locations doesn’t respond well to be taken outdoors. Use colors and designs that are more prominent in outdoor locations. There is frequently a great deal of trial and error involved in this but assess what works and what doesn’t and you need to soon develop a teaser for designing material that’s suitable for outdoor electronic signage.
