Choosing an LCD monitor for a job that involves a lot of sunlight is not an easy task. This is because the LCD panels on most typical LCD displays only produce between 200-500 nits of backlighting which is not enough brightness to create high contrast needed for sunlight and daylight readability.
In order to make their monitors more viewable during the day, some manufacturers are configuring their flat screen panels to produce at least 343 nits of backlighting. However, this is still not enough to make the display more viewable when placed in an area that receives a lot of sunlight. Businesses that need public displays and outdoor digital signage need display panels that produce great contrast that is visible against the glare. Fortunately, LCD panel manufacturers are now taking the backlighting to the next level by incorporating a backlighting technology that produces at least 1,000 nits of lighting to create sunlight readable LCD displays. Outdoor monitors are desirable not only for businesses that need digital signage displays but also for home owners who would like to install television near their swimming pool or in their backyard. Outdoor televisions are great for entertaining guests in the garden or yard during those weekend barbeque picnics or a simple celebration.
Thanks to sunlight readable LCD displays, businesses can have a more effective outdoor digital signage solution while home owners and guests need not to stay indoors just to watch their favorite television programs as they can enjoy watching the scenes while they are enjoying the relaxing water in the pool.
