Outdoor Digital Signage
There are lots of challenges when implementing outdoor digital signage but despite this more and more digital screens are being built outside to make the most of their greater audience numbers these outside digital advertising screens can create. While the most obvious challenge for carrying a industrial grade LCD screen outside is protecting it from the weather, and in particular rainfall, the problems connected with the sun can be just as difficult to overcome.

The issue with the sun and outdoor digital signage is the direct sunlight will often make the screen unreadable. Not only can sun cause warmth (you must know what that is like when you attempt to see the TV at home during the summer months where very often you are forced to shut the curtain to see the screen obviously ) but even if there’s absolutely no warmth in bright sunlight the screen will appear dim and difficult to read. But there are ways to ensure the screen is as easy as you can when taken outside:
Assuming you’ve the cleverest type of screen potential will go along way to making sure that 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 screen should be 800 nits but LCD using 1000+ nits are available and should be taken into account when seeking to get into outdoor digital signage. It should also be noted that in general industrial screens have greater nit values and therefore are better suited to outdoor signage screens.
Anti-glare technology Sadly, whichever way you go on that there probably will be some drop-off in brightness. Direct sunlight can cause more problems than just glare too. Display burn can grow whether sunlight is continually on it either the outside digital screen ought to be turned off from sunlight or some other solution to prevent 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 does not respond well to be taken outside. Use colours and designs that are more notable in outdoor locations. There is often a lot of trial and error involved with this but check what works and what does not and you need to soon develop a teaser for designing content that is suitable for outdoor digital signage.
