Outdoor Displays – Sunlight Considerations
One of the most significant factors on outdoor display is the impact of the sun. In a sunny environment, high-brightness displays will be needed for optimal viewing, achieving luminance of between 1,500 and 2,500 candelas per square metre. The display’s brightness should be measured through their cover glass and/or film, of course, not just at the surface of the liquid crystal display (LCD) itself. When positioning outdoor digital displays, east and west orientations are the worst, as they will received the most direct sunlight. North and south orientations are best.
