How To Protect Your Electronics This Summer

Summer has officially arrived, and though you might be ready to embrace the heat and all that the season has to offer, your electronics aren’t thinking the same.

Just like how the heat may get to you after a while, your electronics will suffer too if you aren’t careful. And let’s face it, we all need our electronics to be there and working when we need them. 

Here are some tips to ensure your electronics are safe and working correctly all summer long:

Allow For Airflow

Your electronics need some breathing room, especially during the summer, to keep cool. About 2-3 inches of ample space around your electronic devices to ensure that the vents are clear and unobstructed. The average electronics place their vents on the back, so be sure to take a look.  

Avoid The Sun

There’s no doubt that during the summer months the temperatures are hot and the sun makes you feel it even more. Be conscious to avoid leaving electronics directly in the sunlight, or they will overheat quickly. Cooler areas are always ideal since electronics produce their own heat when they are on. Position your computers and other devices along the airflow path of a fan or air conditioner, and remember hot air rises, so the lower levels of your home are also ideal.

Don’t Stack Them

Since electronics produce their own heat as they function, stacking them on top of one another will only increase that heat. While your electronics are on shelves or tabletops, keep them distanced and don’t carry too many devices in a bag, and avoid enclosed spaces together.

Keep Them Clean

Taking the time to ensure your devices are clean can also help them keep cool in the heat. Dirt, dust, dander, and more can build up around your device’s vents and fans, which can lead them to break or not work correctly, leading to overheating. Try using a can of compressed air to help!

Protect Them From Summer Storms

Heat isn’t the only thing dangerous for your electronics; summer storms can also cause issues for your devices. You never know when a storm will roll in and cause surges to your electrical system, so it’s best to take necessary precautions. Be sure to save all your important files and data to a backup, shut down your devices at the end of the day or after use, and utilize surge protectors.

How To Choose Content For Your Video Wall

Take your business to the next level with a made-for-you video wall by Apollo Displays Technologies! Our video walls, composed of bright, durable display screens, can be customized to meet your business needs and goals. If you’re looking for something to help your storefront stand out from others, this might be just what you need.

So, now that you’ve invested in an Apollo Display Technologies video wall, it’s time to decide what content to showcase! Your new video wall gives you the opportunity to display whatever you want your customers to see; a perfect way to bring in new ones and have the old ones excited about returning. The team at Apollo Display’s has some ideas to get you started:

Create a Unified Display

One of the most effective strategies is to create a unified display, where the visuals are pieced together as a whole rather than put separately on individual screens. A video playing across your entire video wall is sure to attract eyes. But be considerate of how the screen’s black bars could disrupt your visuals, especially if there is text.  

Build A Photo-Op Experience

Everyone loves a good photo, but taking the perfect picture with the right background can be challenging. Turn your video wall into a beautiful backdrop designed to be posed with or used as a background for photos. This will make your video wall and store interactive and intriguing for customers. Plus, if they share the image, they’re telling others about your store and the experience they had there!  

Interactivity

If you want to take your custom video wall to the next level, try making it interactive! Customers will love feeling like they are part of your business and can create their own experience. This can include adding a continuously updated social media feed, games, product demonstrations, and more. This is especially beneficial if your screens have touch capabilities.

Get The Word Out

Think about what you want your audience to know about your products, services, and business. This is what you should be advertising across your video wall, so customers know exactly what to expect and why they should buy what you’re selling. Get creative, and utilize the entire space you are given. Remember that imagery is everything, and the visuals should always be cohesive and eye-catching.  Lastly, don’t forget about text; it should always be easy to read and make sense.

How To Prevent Condensation Build Up In Electronics

Our electronics are important to us, and it’s normal to want to ensure they are working correctly at all times, and nothing is preventing us from using them to their fullest potential. Fogging and condensation is a natural occurrence when there is excessive humidity or moisture in the air. When the moist air comes in contact with a cold surface, such as a window or screen, fog and condensation can build up.

Luckily with Apollo Display Technologies optical bonding, you won’t have to worry about your screens fogging up at all.

Utilize Optical Bonding

Optical bonding is a crucial process that consists of applying a thin layer of silicone adhesive gel to a glass screen or touchscreen, which is then attached to an LCD panel of a monitor. This process is done to secure the two together in order to create a solid bond without any pockets of air in between them. 

One of the most important advantages of optical bonding is that it prevents any condensation build-up or fogging from occurring. Since the air gap between the panes of glass is eliminated with this process, no moisture can penetrate. 

Other advantages of the optical bonding process include:

  • Greater durability
  • Better imaging
  • Improved touchscreen accuracy
  • Protection from dust and dirt particles
  • Higher contrast
  • Improved readability in in bright environments

VacuBond® Vacuum Bonding

When it comes to optical bonding, Apollo Display Technologies are leaders in the industry. With our own direct dry optical bonding process, VacuBond® Vacuum Bonding, you will feel comfortable knowing that all your display screens are protected against condensation, durable, and able to withstand harsh conditions.

How To Prevent Digital Eye Strain

There’s no escaping your digital devices in today’s society, but do you know how extended use can impact your health? As entertaining and vital as our digital screens are, it’s important to acknowledge the amount of time each day you spend using your technology and when to take breaks. If you’re one of the many people that experiences pain and discomfort in your eyes and body after spending a long time on digital devices, you are experiencing digital eye strain.

What is Digital Eye Strain?

Digital eye strain is a temporary discomfort or pain caused by using and looking at digital devices for an extended period. Symptoms of this strain can follow after even just one to two hours, and with many spending eight or more hours a day staring at digital screens, this can be a continual problem. Some devices that contribute to digital eye strain include desktop or laptop computers, smartphones, televisions, tablets, gaming screens, and more.

The discomfort and pain associated with digital eye strain occur due to a combination of factors. One reason is that screens often have a small print or pixilated imagery that can be tough to focus on, causing eye strain. Also, blue light, or high-energy visible light, emitted from digital devices, can be harmful to the eyes, especially after repeated exposure from bright screens.

Some symptoms of digital eye strain include: 

  • Irritated, dry, tired, or red eyes
  • Blurred vision
  • Headache
  • Back, neck, or shoulder pain

Tips To Prevent Digital Eye Strain

Luckily, there are tips you can utilize to help minimize the impact digital devices have on your eyes. These methods include:

  • Keep your distance – Position your digital device, so there is enough space between your eyes and the screen. 
  • Adjust screen brightness – Using the device’s control settings, lower your brightness when necessary. Try also making your background a more muted color rather than bright white. 
  • Dim your surrounding lights – Reduce the amount of light from the areas around your device, so your eyes don’t have to compete. When outside, avoid direct sunlight to reduce glare. 
  • Increase the text size – Make the text on your screens larger so it’s more comfortable and easy to read for your eyes.
  • Wear computer glasses – Increasing in popularity, computer glasses are worn to block blue light and decrease eye strain during continual digital device use. They look like regular glasses, but the lens is different and not for those who need help seeing closer.
