This year, each monthly edition of our newsletter will include a technical tip related to the specification, installation or post-install management of anything LED related.
This month, the software based feature of automatic brightness scheduling is discussed. Automatic brightness setting is a software based feature that many content management systems do not offer, as the feature applies to LED screens that must change brightness at different times of the day. As a general rule of thumb, LED screens operate at 90-100% of maximum brightness to counteract direct sunlight in them middle of the day. Overnight, this brightness percentage must be changed to around 20% to avoid an overpowering eye-saw.
As well as being more visibly attractive, the correct scheduling of brightness reduces power consumption, the production of heat and improved the screens lifetime, as wear on the diodes is reduced.
