Reflections on Reflections

Specular reflections are those we normally associate with a highly polished surface, such as a mirror. In technical terms, the angle of incidence of the light is equal to the angle of reflection of the light (see figure 1). All materials obey the law of reflection when viewed at a fine enough detail. It is the specular reflection which is responsible for forming an image in a shiny surface. It also results in a bright spot, called a specular highlight, when a small light source is at such a position that it can reflect into the eye.

LCD inspection pixel grades

LCD’s that come off the production line new are not 100% pixel defect free. LCD manufactures created their own LCD grading system in order to account for the variations in pixel quality.  There are acceptable limits within the LCD market to the number of dead pixels within a specific sector of the LCD.  Below are the manufacturer’s terminology

Brand new Z grade (AUO grading system)
Zero pixel defects- not even 1 pixel can be dead.

Brand New A grade (all other mfrs) (P Grade for AUO)
(1,3,3)- 1 sub pixel can be out in 1 sector up to 3 pixels can be out (these are never noticeable to the naked eye)

Brand New A minus grade (N grade for AUO)
(3,3,5)- up to 3 sub pixels out in 1 sector

Brand New B grade
(3,5,7) Up to 7 bad sub pixels.

LCD solutions providers and panel purchasing

Depending on the type of application, whether it be outdoor digital signage or industrial display screens, there are many important elements to making the right panel choice for your new, state of the art display.

If it's outdoor digital signage, there are, offcourse, the basic questions. Is the display large enough for the intended audience to view from the desired location? Is the panel sunlight readable (typically over 1000 nits) with low reflection? If it's an industrial display, is the panel wide format (16:10 opposed to 4:3). Is the lamp/LED light bar repleacable to enhance the products lifetime? Once these questions are answered and you've decided what manufacturer you'll purchase the displays from, there are still other important factors in your purchase.

A well run digital signage network increases advertising revenue, especially in airports. Digital Signage Universe-The Blog reports today on The Screen Forum, a UK-based organization dedicated to information sharing and networking within the digital signage industry. An interesting statistic was reported: In 2009, 4.37 billion ticketed passengers took to the sky worldwide. The US represented about 30% of the worldwide passenger traffic with more than 1.3 billion ticketed passengers.  Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, one of the world's largest domestic-based transportation hubs, handled more than 87 million passengers in 2009.

London's Heathrow airport, the world's largest international airport, handled more than 62 million international passengers in 2008. "What's happening at London's Heathrow airport is quite astonishing," said Erik Bottema, Director of Aviator North America, a division of Kinetic Worldwide. "From a media perspective, Heathrow is two-thirds of the size of Atlanta's airport, but it's generating approximately 10 times the advertising revenue." Perhaps Heathrow Airport is a prime example of what can happen when a digital signage network is implemented properly. it will be interesting to see what happens when airports, train and bus stations across American embrace digital signage technology.

Confused by DOOH? Let's stick with digital signage.

Daniel Parisien of Digital Signage Digest writes of the compulsive need to remain digital signage. He says, "There is a lot of discussion going on in recent weeks surrounding the term digital out-of-home compared to digital signage. Some say digital out-of-home is a subset of digital signage where DOOH is related to advertising networks. Others say digital signage is not related to advertising and is a different category than digital out-of-home. Veterans to this space must remember the cyclical nature of our industry and the compulsive need gurus-of-the-week have to give a new name to digital signage."

Digital Signage Solves Nutritional Labeling for Restaurants.
Signum Digital Solutions writes of a new law passed by Congress in March (Section 4205 of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act) and what that means for 20-plus restaurant chains across the country.

Going digital will alleviate much of the execution questions that restaurant management is grappling with today. The flexibility of digital signage offers restaurants the ability to meet compliance demands painlessly and could serve as a communication vehicle to promote a myriad of other brand-related services, products and events.

How digital signage networks can be profitable.
Bill gerba of Wirespring technologies offers us the dirt on what it takes to make your digital signage company valuable and what it means for cash-strapped and growth-constrained digital signage companies today. Bill tells us, "Building out a digital signage network takes a lot of capital -- there's no doubt about that. And for many companies, the challenge of raising enough money to get a network started is matched in difficulty only by the subsequent tasks of raising follow-on money for expansion, and making a successful exit via merger or acquisition."
