Outdoor Digital Signage
There are plenty of challenges when applying outside digital signage but despite this more and more digital screens are being erected outside to make the most of the greater audience numbers these outside digital advertising screens can generate. While the most obvious challenge for taking a commercial grade LCD display outdoors is shielding it from the weather, and specifically rainfall, the problems associated with the sun can be just as hard to overcome.

The issue with the sun and outdoor digital signage is the direct sunlight will frequently create the screen unreadable. Not only can sun cause warmth (you should know what that is like when you try and watch the TV at home throughout the summer months where very often you are forced to shut the curtain to see the display clearly) but even if there is absolutely no warmth in bright sunlight the display will appear dim and hard to read. But there are ways to ensure the display is as easy as you can when taken outside:
Assuming you’ve the brightest type of display potential will go along way to ensuring 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 display should be 800 nits but LCD using 1000+ nits are available and should be taken into account when seeking to get into external electronic signage. It should also be mentioned that in general commercial screens have greater nit values and therefore are better suited for outdoor signage screens.
Preventing glare is accomplished in a number of ways. Sadly, no matter which way you select this there most likely will be some drop-off in brightness. Direct sunlight may cause more problems than simply glare also. Display burn can grow whether sunlight is continually on it either the outside digital display ought to be turned off from sunlight another solution to protect against this display burn ought to be looked at such as cooling the display .
Bespoke Outdoor Content
A great deal of content that works well in indoor places doesn’t respond well to be taken outside. Use colors and designs that are more prominent in outdoor places. There is frequently a great deal of trial and error involved with this but assess what works and what doesn’t and you should soon develop a flare for designing material that is suitable for outdoor digital signage.
