NuShield Screen Protectors For Apple and Google Devices in Cars

Written By [php snippet=1]

Isn’t technology great? We have gone from Walkmans to iPods, oversized, bulky mobile phones to sleek smart phones, and from hard-to-fold maps in the glove box to digital GPS systems that tell us how to get anywhere. With the newest forms of car technology, consumers will be able to do it all right from the dashboard of their car from their phones, iPads, or notebook devices. Apple CarPlay combines the intelligence of the iOS operating system with your car, so you can use your phone, tablet, or iPod without having to pick up a device.

The new Google Open Auto Alliance does the same thing for Android users. With all of these conveniences, multi tasking is about to become the easiest way to get anything done, even while you are driving. So what’s the catch? The only downside is the reflective glare that keeps you from being able to see your LCD. So how do you fix it? Using an antireflective screen protector takes away the bright reflections and makes your screen visible again.

NuShield® DayVue™ is an antireflective protectant you use in your car to alleviate that reflective glare while you glimpse your GPS or other in-vehicle electronics devices. Not only does DayVue make it easier to read your messages or see who you’re calling, the screen protector is scratch resistant and easy to install. And the special coating on the film allows you to see the display even when you are wearing polarized sunglasses. Don’t have an Apple CarPlay yet but still enjoy using devices while you are in the car? Add a DayVue screen protector to you and your family’s devices, including iPads, phones, monitors, computers, and any handheld device.

The NuShield car screen protector uses light canceling technology to make it easy to see your device with no problems. The protectors come in a variety of sizes to fit all of your devices, so you don’t have to squint to see which songs you are looking for on your iPod. Eliminate eye strain while protecting your device’s screens with the DayVue protector film.

Need some help when you’re using your electronics inside? The NuShield Antiglare/Antifingerprint Screen Protector Film is a must have for indoor applications. Is your office lighting so harsh and bright you can’t see your computer screen? Use NuShield AG to cut the glare on any LCD screen. Using NuShield AG is the best way to reduce 99% of UVB light, and as a bonus, it hides the appearance of fingerprints, keeping your device neat and clean. Your computer or handheld device may even last longer when you use NuShield AG, because wear and damage are reduced. One of the best things about NuShield is how easy it is to put on and take off without any device damage.

Passing a device back and forth between your kids, or setting your device down in public places can encourage bacterial growth. Put a stop to it when you use NuShield Triple A screen protector, which includes an antimicrobial coating to prevent the growth of germs on your device. The Triple A is also antiglare and antifingerprint, making it a must for consumers who work in hospitals, airports, or libraries. This protector is the only option for devices with multiple users. Reduce the risk of germs and make it easy to see in any type of light with the NuShield Triple A.

Though in-vehicle electronics and a wide variety of devices like phones, MP3 players, laptops, and tablets make our lives easier, why not make it even simpler to see when it’s sunny, while protecting your device from scratches and fingerprints? That’s where the NuShield line of products comes in. Enjoy your devices without destroying your eyesight!

Do I need a protective case for my device?

Written By [php snippet=1]

You just spent a lot of money purchasing your tablet or Smartphone and you’re worried about dropping, breaking or scratching it while using your new device. Or you work in an environment where your device can come in contact with chemicals, dirt, grime or water that can damage the case, the screen or the inside parts.

There are several options on the market to protect your device. There is the simple body wrap sold by ZAGG or Ghost Armor at your mall that permanently adheres to the case that protects against scratches, but not much more. Also, their screen protector is not coated so that your display looks like a mirror when you try to use your device outside. You can also purchase a wide variety of plastic frame cases at the mall, but their main function is to look pretty and not very functional to prevent damage when the device is dropped.

If you really need to protect your tablet or phone from damage because you use it in a tough work environment or expect to drop it then you should consider a rubberized protective case. There are a number of manufacturers on the market and you can purchase this in retail stores. The two most notable companies are AMDi and Lifeproof and they offer cases for both tablets and phones.

Even with the case protected from damage, you will still have readability issues with the display. Some of these cases will come with a clear adhesive film to use as a screen protector over the display, but they are not treated for glare or fingerprint control.

Many users take the extra step to purchase a NuShield screen protector film to replace the one that came with the case or place it over the installed clear screen protector to provide glare protection. The NuShield DayVue anti reflective screen protector allows users to read the display outdoors. The film has been installed by companies whose employees work outside or have their device mounted inside cars.

The NuShield Triple A anti glare screen protector has been used in education and health care environments where not only glare, but also germ elimination is necessary. The Triple A film also hides fingerprints and is ideal for areas where multiple persons touch the screen.

Protecting your tablet or Smartphone is always a good idea because the case and screen can be easily damaged. There are several options for protection, but the NuShield films for protecting the LCD display is the best solution no matter which case you choose.

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.

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.

NuShield’s Anti Reflective Screen Protectors Improve Your Golf Practice

Written By [php snippet=1]

Thanks to the advancements in practical technology, golfers now have the tools to improve their golf games through applications on their smart phone, laptop or tablet. Some of these applications allow them to capture video of their swings to show ways in which they can improve their game. However, since golfers use these applications on the driving range, sunlight blocks the displays not allowing outdoor screens visibility. This is where the NuShield® DayVue™ anti reflective screen protector film saves the day.

Benefits of The NuShield DayVue Anti Reflective Screen Protector for Golfers

  • Prevents a smart phone, laptop or tablet’s display from scratching, due to everyday use.
  • Allows easy fingerprint cleaning so golfers see a clear view of their screen when they record or watch video and tutorials.
  • anti reflective screen protectors for outdoor use on cameras, phones, ipads, tablets and laptopsAbility for the golfer to wear polarized sunglasses and still see the screens clearly.
  • The tacky adhesive is easy to install and remove. Film sizes can fit a wide variety of devices.

Combined, these benefits make the anti reflective screen protector an appealing buy for golfers.

Customer Review of NuShield Products

While standard anti glare films darken the screen outdoors, only the NuShield DayVue anti reflective film allows users to view their electronic devices in this environment. Due to their efficiency, the DayVue received positive reviews from customers. Kitti Ford-Scholz from Kanehoe, Hawaii, says that the NuShield products are fantastic and that she recommends these anti reflective screen protectors to all iPad users.

Ultimately, the new developments in mobile applications are making it easier for golfers to improve their game. However, since these applications are used outdoors it’s important that golfers have anti reflective films on their devices to view their display effectively. The NuShield DayVue anti reflective screen protector film is easy to install, it allows the user to see  the display and not a self reflection,  and it can protect the surface of the phone, laptop or tablet from incurring scratches. The result is a great film protector that helps golfers view their displays clearly, so they can work on improving their game.

The difference is clear when you view a smartphone, camera, tablet, or laptop with and without the DayVue Anti Reflective films side by side outside.
