NuShield Solves a Safety Concern for Store Owners

Do some research on products like our NuShield anti glare screen protector film and you’ll be surprised at how many different applications they have. Screen protector films can be applied not only to the displays of electronics, but also directly on windows to prevent glare from bright sunlight from hindering visibility indoors.

Those who do business from a storefront location such as convenience stores, know that bright sunlight poring into Point of Saletheir store windows can make it hard to see. Glare can not only make it impossible to read cash register and computer screen displays, but it can also make interaction and communication with co-workers and clients difficult.

Consider the following scenario: A police officer can’t see into a local convenience store because posters have been put up over the windows to block the glare from the sun and to allow store clerks to make out cash register screens. While these posters might improve visibility on the inside of the store, the safety of those working in the store is compromised if the police cannot see the store clerk and the register area. Thieves take note of factors like poor visibility and use them to their advantage to rob storefront locations while invisible to the police and other passersby.

Twitch Gamers Use NuShield Anti-Reflective Screen Protectors to Get an Edge

In his family’s sunroom on a bright summer afternoon, Johnny is playing Titan Fall on Xbox One and streaming on Twitch. It’s one of the best games he’s ever played on any Xbox (even though there is no campaign!) He’s killing all the bad guys and racking up the score – he’s gaining gamers one by one, each gamer leaving more and more amazing comments along the way. It’s probably his best game yet. Things look good for him! But, in the sun lurks an evil being. An evil so horrible, so horrific, that you couldn’t believe it if you tried!

Twitch gamers use NuShield protective films to get an edge on their gameThat evil is called Dr. Glare. Funny enough this dangerous and irritating villain only comes out during the day when the sun is bright and hot. Nonetheless, Johnny tries his best to beat Dr. Glare. He dives left, then right, he moves his chair, he goes deeper inside, he closes the drapes. He tries everything he can to keep Dr. Glare out, but to no avail. Suddenly, a Minion comes from behind a wall in Titan Fall and kills Johnny on the spot! If only he would have had a way to keep that nasty Dr. Glare out of his room. If only he had a hero to come in and save the day – and his game!

If you are a Twitch gamer that goes through this on a daily basis dealing with your own Dr. Glare, start thinking about how to defeat this monstrous villain! It might seem like it’s futile at first. Like nothing you do will keep him away, but if only you had the right weapons and the right hero, then you could defeat him. In times like this, there is only one thing to do — get out the Anti-Glare signal and call for… Captain Anti-Glare! Surely, with the super power of NuShield’s®  Antiglare/Anti-fingerprint screen protector he will be able to defeat Dr. Glare!

All right, so Anti-Glare is not a super hero, but it might feel like one after you defeat reflection or glare issues on your TV. All gamers go through this problem, but when you are Twitch gamer and you are streaming your game, any inconsistency or issue like glare, is always something you want to get rid of as soon as possible! Yes, a screen protector like NuShield AG Antiglare is the perfect weapon to have when playing any games on any television. Not only is it going to keep Dr. Glare away and allow you to play in peace with other gamers, but if you are playing on Twitch and you are playing live, it could also keep your fans and followers from getting annoyed at Dr. Glare as well.

NuShield AG Antiglare has two weapons to help fight against glare and reflective issues to help gamers, depending on where you are playing. You can choose from:

Weapon #1: NuShield® DayVue™ Anti-Reflective: A great weapon for fighting all those annoyning screen reflections that block your ability to see the screen if you are playing outside ,or

Weapon #2: NuShield® AG™ Anti-Glare films for indoor use.

Both of these weapons use a material that is stronger and more reliable than anything else out there. Both of shields will help you play a better more clear game, help you see the television screen better without all those reflections and glare, and both will protect your TV screen.

NuShield can be used on almost any gaming device too, not just a television set. Gamers are using them on DS, Gameboy, Sony Slim and more.

Restaurants Prevent Bacterial Contamination with NuShield Triple A Anti-microbial Screen Protectors

Owning a restaurant can be a fun and interesting experience. However, just with any other business, there are certain things you must consider in order to run a successful, healthy and people-friendly organization. It doesn’t matter if you own a full restaurant or you just serve appetizers, health issues are always going to come into play. This is especially true with restaurants, bars and pubs that use play systems with televisions for sports events, games and more. It’s the reason why many restaurants use devices such as sneeze guards and use plastic covers on their menus. Germs can and probably will spread if you don’t prevent bacterial contamination.

Germs can cause all sorts of sicknesses, flus, coughs and colds. If you have televisions, play systems or even bar arcade systems in your establishment, it’s a good idea to start looking into Anti-microbial Screen Protectors.

NuShield® Triple A™ Antiglare, Antimicrobial, Antifingerprint Screen Protectors are just like the NuShield screen protectors you place on your phone, television sets at home or iPad devices. But, they do a few more things in a restaurant scene considering they are used to control bacterial contamination. Here are just a few of the amazing benefits that you can get from these screens:

Anti-microbial Protection:
These protectors, as the name states, help keep micro-bacteria at bay. Unlike regular screens, these Anti-microbial Screen Protectors are very easy to clean (or throw away) and it keeps your customers safe and healthy. Not only can Anti-microbial Screen Protectors help with inhibiting bacteria, but it can also help keep away other inhabitants as well such as mold, fungus and mildew. This also makes these Screen Protectors great for indoor, as well as outdoor use in your restaurant and bar. This is especially true for restaurants that have outdoor television sets and are worried about the climate and surrounds around the television sets or monitors.

Durability:
Unlike a regular screen on a television, the materials used to make these Screen Protectors are very durable and can last for extended periods of usage. The materials in the protectors actually act as a barrier against any bacteria; but if bacteria does get on the Screen Protector bacteria does not get absorbed or transferred to the next person that touches the screen. It’s all very technologically advanced!

Beyond actually keep your customers safe, you can also help to keep your electronics safe. The Anti-microbial Screen Protectors reduces stains and odors from spilled drinks or cigar and cigarette smoke. Cigar and cigarette smoke can really tarnish your screen and even ruin the colors on your television. Spilled drinks on a monitor can outright ruin the entire system.

However, something like the Anti-microbial Screen Protectors leave a razor sharp image as if you never even had the Anti-microbial Screen Protectors on it.

After all, owning a restaurant isn’t just about making money, it’s about taking care of your community and making sure they are in a safe environment.

Tip: NuShield Anti Glare Films In TV Room Design

When it comes to TV room design there are a few factors to consider. One of the most important factors is the light inside the room. If you tend to have a lot of windows, doors or natural light that comes into the TV room that you are designing, the biggest issue you are going to have is the glare that bounces off the TV from the light inside the house. Even if you don’t have windows or doors in the room per se, other types of light, from bulbs inside the house, can cause a glare on the TV. The best way to reduce or eliminate glare is to affix a NuShield® Anti-Glare screen film on the TV. These films do double duty – they also hide nuisance glare and keep little fingerprints at bay. Unlike some of the other anti-glare screens on the market, NuShield AG Antiglare films protect your TV a few different ways and have features unlike other brands out there on the market today.

  • Clarity
    When using an anti-glare screen or film, people tend to complain about the cloudiness that it creates on their TV. When designing TV rooms and using NuShield Antiglare films this is not an issue. In fact, the NuShield AG Antiglare/Anti fingerprint and Triple A Anti glare/anti microbial/anti fingerprint films are the clearest films available as far as anti-glare goes.
  • Fingerprints
    If you have kids in your house or you tend to get a lot of fingerprints from adults touching the TV, NuShield Anti glare films hide fingerprints from the TV because unlike your television set, it’s made with a material that does not attach the oils from your fingers to the screen. It’s a nice option especially if you are designing TV rooms for your kids!
  • Durability
    Beyond just keeping the glare off your television set, the NuShield Anti glare films also have an anti-scratch resistant material. This might not be a huge issue if you are designing TV rooms for adults, but if you are designing a playroom with a TV for your kids, well, you know kids! If something can happen, it usually does happen with children, even if it’s an accident. And it is not just kids.  If you have a dog or cat who might be attracted to something on the screen, it is easy to have paw prints or nail marks left on the display.  If you have a nice big beautiful television set, the last thing you need or want is scratch and scuff marks!

UVB Light: When looking at any film for anti-glare, you also want to make sure that it has a high degree of elimination when it comes to UVB light. The NuShield Antiglare films has one of the highest degrees at around 99.9% for eliminating UVB ultra violet light. This is important for two reasons. First off, it makes your screen last for a longer period and second off, it will keep your TV colors bright and colorful.

Why is a Screen Protector Essential for Boat Televisions

Written By [php snippet=1]

The old adage about “boats being holes in the water, where the owner throws money” has, if anything, become even more apt with the advent of upmarket consumer electronics. Marine satellite trackers that remain signal-locked underway, boosted antennas which collect the same amount of signal as their old-fashioned, outsize cousins, multi-stateroom entertainment systems, humidity- and corrosion-resistant speakers, all add immeasurably to the boating experience. But the sums they subtract from the old bank balance can be equally conspicuous.

Flat-Screen Pros and Cons

Flatscreen television technology is a lifesaver for all who live or vacation in relatively compact spaces. That said — like everything else, it seems — those flatscreen TVs manufactured for on-vessel applications, as opposed to equivalents aimed at regular residential markets, are vastly more expensive.

And there are the add-ons. Both conventional pedestals and brackets, and ultramodern servomotor-driven lifts (which accommodate TVs inside other furniture, first driving them into the viewing area, then retracting them), must be made with marine application in mind. Wave motion creates a great deal of stress, so mounting systems have to be cushioned from vibration as well as protected against moisture and salt ingression.

Nonetheless, for many, a flatscreen TV is now a boating must. Imagine this disappointment: an owner has a wonderful, hi-def surround-sound system installed, then checks it out in port when he gets to his boat Friday evening. Everything’s fine. Next day, when it’s time to while away an hour at anchor admiring his new purchase, all he gets is a funhouse hall-of-mirrors; a chaotic reflection of everything else in his environment.

What happened?

The Glare Gremlin

The myriad light sources inside a cabin — from unshielded exterior doors and hatches, windows and portholes to brightwork, chrome trim and brass fixtures — can all serve to overwhelm a flatscreen’s backlighting, particularly in daytime.
All that’s left visible on-screen may be a series of mirrored images. To fix this, the TV must be retrofitted with an anti glare screen protector.

Why Is a Screen Protector Recommended?

It’s imperative to use the correct tool for any job on board. It’s thus important to understand what an anti glare screen protector does:

  • Anti glare films scatter reflected light, effectively disintegrating echo-images by diffusing sources of luminescence, and the brightly-lit objects observed on mirror-like screen surfaces.  The NuShield® Triple A™ anti glare film is an excellent option and it also provides anti fingerprint protection as well.
  • If the TV is mounted topside and is viewed outdoors in sunlight, then the NuShield DayVue™ anti reflective screen protector is the correct solution.  Anti reflective films cancel reflected light, meaning they diminish reflectance across most of the spectrum visible to humans. They’re used to maximize screen visibility in outdoor environments, where intense ambient light can overwhelm LCD backlighting, making the screen appear dark.  The DayVue anti reflective film even works when you and your guests are wearing polarized sunglasses on deck.  And the DayVue film can also be used on LCD instrument panels outside to make them visible in sunlight.

Both anti glare and anti reflective film types provide excellent protection from bounced-back UVB ultra violet rays, and protect screens from scratches. For flatscreen TVs that are watched indoors, even inside a boat, anti glare products are required. For screens located in the bridge or cockpit, the anti reflective screen protectorworks better.

Importance of Optimization

Flat-screen TVs aren’t just for watching satellite-broadcast news/entertainment programming. Charter captains can review catches with current clients, or use footage to advertise their skills to potential contractors. With some multifunction accessories, it’s even possible to view navigational equipment’s output as a screen-in-screen display on satellite-hooked TVs anywhere on the boat.

Here’s a checklist of what’s necessary for successful onboard viewing:

  • Reception device (typically a satellite receiver)
  • Marine-grade flatscreen TV
  • Waterproof speakers
  • Anti glare (for indoor use) or anti reflective (for outdoor use) screen protection

NuShield manufactures both anti glare and anti reflective screen protector films. Their products are ideal for use in all situations, including the strenuous environment of marine boating. NuShield is the only manufacturer offering film up to 80-inches (diagonal), and can custom-cut any order size to that maximum.

Glare Screen Protectors Enhance Flat Panel TVs

Written By [php snippet=1]

The beautiful large panel TVs that are available today are a very hot trend. Almost everyone desires one to proudly display in their entertainment room, living room, or any room in their home. But these amazing TVs can come with some issues!

Reasons Why Large TVs Need Anti-Glare Screen Protectors

Over the past year, television manufacturers have stopped providing the anti glare matte finish to the display of some TVs to reduce manufacturing cost.  As a result, the display is glossy and reflects everything. Once installed in your home, you may find one of these challenges:

  • Room lighting – the lamps or other lights in the room where the television was installed cause a glare on the screen. Should you move the lights, move the television, or find some other solution?
  • Windows – in the daylight hours sunlight can cause an annoying glare on many of the large panel TV’s. You can choose to watch television in the darkness and cover your windows, or find some way to reduce the glare.
  • Reflections – those shiny flat screens can cause almost a mirror reflection, which can make TV viewing more challenging.
  • Brightness – for some people with sensitive eyes the brightness level for the newer model HDTV’s can be irritating. Some people even consider wearing sunglasses to reduce the brightness.

Thankfully, there’s an easy solution to help with all of these challenges. The NuShield® AG™ anti glare screen protector and the NuShield Triple A anti glare screen protector are the best solution to these problems. The custom cut NuShield anti glare screen protector film presents a very professional appearance and is easily installed. Immediately you will notice the difference.

NuShield glare screen protector stops w window light reflectionThe anti glare screen protector technology from NuShield actually enhances the appearance of your television in your room. Outside of the store showroom’s special lighting, your television needs some form of glare protection for the best viewing experience. The NuShield solution diffuses the glare hitting the screen with only a slight reduction in brightness. Reflections are virtually eliminated and glare from lighting or sunlight is minimized. You can relax and enjoy your television regardless of where it is installed in your home or business.

You can get NuShield glare protection for a brand new flat panel television or you can install NuShield on an older model flat panel.  The NuShield AG film can be used on TVs up to 48 inch diagonal and the NuShield Triple A film can be used on TVs up to 80 inch diagonal.  Both anti glare screen protector films are easy to wipe clean and hide fingerprints or smears. The NuShield technology enhances the entertainment value of your home flat screen TVs.

For venues that involve food service, education or healthcare environments, the NuShield Triple A™ anti glare screen protector is the best solution because the film offers an additional antimicrobial coating that prevents bacteria growth, mold and mildew on the film surface. The film can be cleaned with commercial cleaners and chemicals without harming the film, making it suitable for public places.

Before you schedule your next big game viewing on your television, consider installing anti glare protection from NuShield. Your family and guests will have a much better viewing experience. And with the right glare protection product you’ll enjoy easy screen cleanup and maintenance.
