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

The problem with the sun and outdoor electronic signage is the direct sunlight will often create 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 summertime where quite often you are forced to shut the curtain to watch the display obviously ) but even when there is absolutely no warmth in bright sunlight the display will appear dim and difficult to see. However there are ways to ensure the display is as easy as possible when taken outdoors:
Ensuring you have the brightest kind of display potential will go along way to ensuring the display is readable. The minimum display brightness for any outdoor LCD display should be 800 nits but LCD using 1000+ nits can be found and must be taken into account when seeking to get into outdoor digital signage. It should also be mentioned that in general industrial screens have higher nit values and 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 simply glare too. Screen burn can grow if sunlight is constantly on it either the outdoor digital display ought to be turned away from sunlight another remedy to protect against this display burn ought to be looked at such as warming the display .
Bespoke Outdoor Content
A great deal of content which works well in indoor places doesn’t respond well to be taken outdoors. Use colors and designs which are more prominent in outdoor places. There is often 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 content that is suitable for outdoor electronic signage.
