Outdoor Digital Signage
There are plenty of challenges when implementing outdoor digital signage but despite this more and more digital screens are being erected out to make the most of the higher audience numbers these outdoor digital advertising screens can generate. While the most obvious challenge for taking a commercial grade LCD display outside is protecting it from the weather, and in particular rain, the problems associated with the sun can be just as hard to overcome.

The issue with the sun and outdoor digital signage is that direct sunlight will often make the screen unreadable. Not only can sun cause glare (you should know what that is like when you try and see the TV at home throughout the summer months where very often you are forced to close the curtain to see the display clearly) but even when there is absolutely no glare in bright sunlight the display will look dim and hard to read. However there are ways to ensure the display is as readable as you can when taken outside:
Ensuring you have the cleverest kind of display possible 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 outdoor LCD display 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 commercial screens have higher nit values and are better suited to outdoor signage screens.
Anti-glare technologies Regrettably, whichever way you go on this there probably will be a few 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 outdoor digital display ought to be turned off from sunlight or some other remedy to prevent this display burn ought to be looked at like cooling the display .
Bespoke Outdoor Content
A lot of content which works well in indoor places doesn’t respond well to be taken outside. Use colors and designs which are more prominent in outdoor places. There is 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 content that is suitable for outdoor digital signage.
