Outdoor kiosks demand that the displays are highly robust, readable and rugged. Displays that are designed for indoor use do not perform well outdoors, for the best solution you must use a special touch screen that tolerates frequently changing weather conditions. Customers must be able to read the display in direct sunlight.
To guarantee the best customer experience, a flat panel display must be brighter than the normal 200-240 Nits, ideally in the region of 500-1000 Nits. Also look for a display that has an auto dim option as this lowers the brightness at night and on cloudy days.
When using a touch screen ensure it is sealed against rain and moisture and check to see if it has safety glass fitted that protects against vandalism and harsh use.
