Sunlight readable screens – do you need it?

Posted: April 14, 2010 at 4:30 pm   /   by   /   comments (1)

I was walking past several shops the other day and noticed that most of them had a plasma screen at the front of their shop  – facing out on the street. Now if you asked me what was displaying on these screens I would not be able to answer this because it was a sunny day and there was too much glare on the screen.

So in this situation, should the store owner have paid the extra money and went with sunlight readable screens? Did the installer mention this to the store manager? Was there a site survey conducted and did someone analyse the environmental constraints?

I guess these are some of the questions you need to ask yourself or the installer before proceeding with purchasing a screen.

    What we have found in the past is that site surveys are done in winter when the light is lower and a demo is set, up then the client signs it off, then when in the summer and the brighter sunlight the issue is raised.

    It is similar to wireless network signals, when they first came out and when in the summer businesses find they cannot access the internet, they found that the trees had leaves on and this was the problem as autumn was when the site surveys were done.
