Depending on the ambient light, it is necessary to have a minimum brightness level to guarantee sufficient visibility. Typically, airports and modern offices are flooded with light via glass atriums and facades, these and other equally bright spaces require displays to deliver brightness of 700cd/m² or even more, however, domestic televisions rarely surpass 300cd/m². Large format displays usually provide a high (≥700cd/m²) or moderate (350-500cd/m²) brightness output suitable for common light conditions, ensuring effortless readability even in challenging circumstances.
Consumer displays cannot be operate in portrait mode due to ventilation and something call the Gravity Defect, which makes a portion of the panel to look blacked out and the rest to be blurry. On the other hand, commercial displays are designed to operate in both landscape and portrait modes.
For consumer televisions, grayscale is skewed for more of the bright white end of the scale relative to the narrow broadcast standards that they must meet. At wider angles, color fi delity and contrast decreases dramatically. Commercial displays will produce a full grayscale with good linear color tracking from black to white showing all 256 different levels of luminance (brightness). Most importantly, color fi delity will be much greater at larger angles, a very important consideration since your audience isn't always looking at the screen straight on.
Using TVs for digital menu boards will result in constant maintenance and adjustments, while commercial displays will proactively prepare you for any potential issues thus eliminating downtime.
Replacing a non-functioning TV requires costly labor and equipment to swap the unit, during which time your menu is no longer being communicated to your audience. As an investment for your business, commercial panels are designed to be a reliable asset, specially optimized to perform perfectly, fit for purpose, without any compromise to quality. A digital menu board isn't simply an additional accessory to your business, it is your primary means of communcation and it has proven its worth as a permanent solution bringing significant business benefits.Evaluate your menu board project
