Standard LCD monitors appear "washed-out" and are difficult, if not impossible, to view outdoors or in high ambient light conditions. This is due to the brightness of the monitor, as well as both internal and exterior reflections. TRU-Vu Monitors has the ideal solutions to overcome these issues.
For bright daylight conditions, and areas with lots of reflected light, TRU-Vu's Optically Bonded Daylight Readable monitors are the perfect solution. The optical bonding process injects an optical-grade epoxy resin into the air gap between the LCD panel and the outer glass. This reduces the internal reflections by over 98%, which improves the contrast ratio and overall viewability of the screen. (as seen in the image above). An additional benefit is that it also increases the monitor's durability.
For applications with bright sunlight falling directly onto the face of the screen, a true Sunlight Readable (aka High-Bright) monitor is the best choice. These sunlight LCD monitors have 1,000 or more nits of screen brightness, which is strong enough to produce clear, sharp, viewable images. Sunlight Readable monitors are available in sizes from 7.0" to 55". We also offer several Optically Bonded Sunlight Readable monitors for the ultimate sunlight solution.
For a more detailed description of both technologies, see this ARTICLE. To see a video comparing Optically Bonded, Sunlight Readable and standard LCD monitors in bright sunlight, click HERE.

Pipeline & Sewer Video Inspection
Inspecting underground pipes and sewers for cracks, leaks or holes is crucial for municipal water and sewer systems, as well as for nuclear, petrochemical, and industrial companies. In the TV inspection of mainlines and drainlines, operators must be able to clearly see the tiniest problems, in any type of conditions. When used outdoors, the images on a standard LCD monitor are washed out and nearly invisible. To remedy this, TRU-Vu offers two types of solutions, Sunlight Readable and Optically Bonded monitors for video pipe inspection systems. Optically Bonded monitors work well in areas with lots of reflected light, while Sunlight Readable monitors are excellent even with direct, bright sunlight falling onto the face of the monitor.
The 8.4", 10.4" and 15" Optically Bonded and 8.4", 10.4" and 15" Sunlight Readable monitors have been extremely popular in portable/mobile pipe inspection systems, as well as truck-mounted video pipe inspection, municipal sewer cleaning equipment systems, and sewer inspection equipment. Our 7" LCD monitor is an excellent low-cost alternative for portable push-camera inspection systems where sunlight and reflections are not a major concern.
For use inside in truck-mounted sewer cleaning equipment and pipeline inspection systems, our 17" , 19" and 22" standard LCD monitors have been very popular.
