sunlight readble displays outdoors

We have a wide variety of sunlight readable display solutions and industrial hi-brite TFT displays for direct sunlight operations.

From small displays for portable industrial applications, to large professional advertising displays for outdoor use.

There are different technologies available to achieve sunlight readability, depending on your application, with brightness up to 5000 nits!

The most common way is to upgrade the backlight to dramatically increase the brightness but we also have factory manufactured super high bright panels.

High bright displays are very effective and are now available in all sizes of LCD TFT Display offering you a lot of flexibility.

Although high brightness displays will generate more heat and use more power than a traditional LCD ours utilise the latest low power high bright LEDs to keep power consumption to a minimum.

Optical Bonding

 Sunlight Readable Displays outdoors

Alternatively, Optical Bonding is a great technology for sunlight readability.

Optical Bonding is a process in which an optical gel is bonded between your LCD and a cover glass or touchscreen.

The gel behind the glass stops any condensation, strengthens the front glass, and also improves sunlight readability.

It also keeps power and heat down as does not affect the backlight in any way.

Here is a comparison:

Due to the Optical Bonding gel, it also dramatically reduces reflection:
