The Wesley United Methodist Church in Edison, NJ has a long and narrow sanctuary which is a problem for worshippers towards the back to see and hear what is going on at the front. Thanks to generous donors the church installed a new sound system and two 75” diagonal televisions upfront at a level where even the last row can see and hear the service.
However, after the televisions were installed it was found that there was a great deal of glare on the TV screen coming through from the glass doors in the back and the overhead lights surrounding the TV. Most pews from the middle rows to the back mostly saw reflections from the lights above, and sunlight coming in through the windows.
The church turned to NuShield to help solve this glare problem. Having decades of experience eliminating glare from all types of display surfaces the solution was easy and cost effective.
The NuShield Triple A anti-glare screen protector film was installed over the surface of the 75 inch diagonal TVs. The installation took a little over an hour and took two people to do the job. The film was installed while the TV was still hanging on the frame. This prevented dirt specs landing on the display and getting caught under the film which would cause bubbles on the surface. One person was responsible for holding the film straight and unrolling it while the other smoothed the film onto the display surface. The film went on smoothly and easily because of the light adhesive on the back of the film which allowed it to be lifted and replaced during installation.
A rubber edged scraper was used to keep the film from developing large air bubbles and later a simple credit card was used to push any small bubbles to the side. The surface of the film was not scratched because the NuShield film comes with a protective liner over the top to allow this type of smoothing. After installation some small bubbles remained. To fix this problem, the TV was turned on for a couple of hours to heat up the screen and burn off the smaller bubbles. The next morning these small bubbles were easily either pushed to the side or just flattened in place. In all, only a couple of small bubbles remained which over time have disappeared.
The final result was remarkable. The Triple A film diffused the reflective images which allowed excellent display readability from all angles and distance. From various locations around the church the TV could be seen clearly without any glare. The church has plans to raise the TV even higher and anchor it to the concrete wall so that it will be even easier for the back row to follow the service.
