Are you intending to your monitor or display outdoors or in a high ambient light application like a shop window?

If so then in 9 out of 10 cases you will need a sunlight readable LCD panel within the LCD monitor or display design.

There is nothing worse than to overlook this point or cut corners here and not be able to see your content on the display.

So make sure you budget for this in your design or wish list to ensure that you get the LCD monitor that works in the way that you intend.

At present there are two main ways of making your LCD monitor visible in bright sunshine and we have listed these below.

High Brightness

This is a traditional method of increasing the backlight illumination of the LCD Panel by using an LED array that is capable of delivering upto 10 times the brightness of a traditional LCD monitor, so anywhere between 1000 and 2500 cd/m2.

At this brightness range whilst you cannot fully combat the effects of direct sunlight the performance of the using High Brightness technology will stand out where as traditional LCD monitors will wash out and the image virtually invisible to see.

Transflective Film

Another very successful way of ensuring image clarity in direct sunlight is to use a “Transflective LCD Panel” within your LCD Monitor or display design. The key thing about this technology is that it uses a reflective layer in the LCD panel construction . This reflects the sunlight through the LCD panel making the image appear to be very crisp and clear.

This technology is a passive low power approach to the issue of viewing LCD Monitors in direct sunlight and as such lends itself to display equipment that needs to be battery operated or in low power portable application.

Window Vision
