Outdoor Digital Signage
There are lots of challenges when implementing outdoor digital signage but despite this more and more digital screens are being erected out to take advantage of their greater audience numbers these outside digital advertising screens can create. While the most obvious challenge for carrying a industrial grade LCD screen outdoors is shielding it from the weather, and in particular rain, the problems connected with the sunlight can be equally as hard to overcome.

The problem with the sunlight and outdoor digital signage is the direct sunlight will often create the screen unreadable. Not only can sunlight cause glare (you must know what that is like when you attempt to watch the TV at home throughout the summertime where very often you’re forced to close the curtain to watch the display obviously ) but even if there is absolutely no glare in bright sunlight the display will look dim and hard to read. However there are methods to ensure the display is as readable as you can when taken outside:
Assuming you’ve the cleverest kind of display possible will go along way to making sure that the display is readable. The brightness of LCD screens is measured in nits (aka candela per square metre). The minimum display brightness for any outside LCD screen should be 800 nits but LCD with 1000+ nits can be found and should be taken into account when seeking to get into external electronic signage. It should also be noted that in general industrial screens have greater 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, no matter which way you go on that there most likely will be a few drop-off in brightness. Direct sunlight may cause more problems than just glare too. Display burn can grow whether sunlight is continually on it so either the outside digital display should be turned away from sunlight or some other solution to prevent this display burn should be looked at like warming the display .
Bespoke Outdoor Content
A lot of content which works well in indoor locations doesn’t respond well to be taken outside. Use colors and designs which are more notable in outdoor locations. There’s often a lot of trial and error involved in this but check what works and what doesn’t and you should soon develop a flare for designing material that is suitable for outdoor digital signage.
