Sunlight Readable LCD Monitors At A Glance

Sunlight Readable LCD Displays from General Digital

Selecting an LCD monitor for "daylight" jobs isn't an easy task. But don't worry–it's not your fault. On most typical flat screen computer monitors, the LCD panels only produce between 200 and 350 nits of backlighting. For daylight and sunlight readability, this is not enough luminance to create the high contrast necessary to make monitor displays visible against glare. 

Daylight Readable and Sunlight Readable LCD technology takes backlighting to the next level. In order to be properly viewable during the day, whether outdoors or indoors in high ambient lighting, General Digital configures its daylight readable flat panel screens to produce at least 343 nits of luminance. To guarantee color visibility in direct sun, our sunlight readable flat panel displays produce at least 686 nits of luminance.

Thanks to extra effort and extensive research into outdoor display visibility, General Digital has created a set of industry-leading high brightness monitors. Most of our display products are engineered go wherever you need them and work flawlessly for years—decades even.

With some models UL and FCC certified and upholding the standards of military requirements, General Digital's monitors with the sunlight or daylight readable option are high quality and durable.

Rugged Sunlight Readable Displays Built to Last

Some outdoor and harsh environments just aren't made for the everyday flat panel LCD monitor. Industrial workstations typically require a rugged monitor capable of being read in spite of the elements, and typical monitors lack the ability to survive the wear and tear of military and industrial environments. For companies that need a daylight readable monitor that works anywhere, built to handle an industrial workload, General Digital's monitors are the solution.

  • Nighttime readable and touch screen adaptability
  • Rugged, all-metal construction
  • Customer-driven design and configuration control
  • Support of screen resolutions up to 4096 x 2160 pixels (4K UHD)
