How NuShield Helps the Staff at SeaWorld

SeaWorldSeaWorld is a place that has a combination of attributes: It is both entertaining and important.

With the safety and happiness of many marine mammals, fish, and other sea creatures in the hands of the SeaWorld staff, these professionals require top-of-the-line technology to ensure the facility’s operations run smoothly and efficiently.

The staffers at SeaWorld employ Microsoft Surface 3 tablets to keep everything on track.  A specialized software tracks the feeding and medicating of the various fish and mammals in the staffers’ care.

But here’s where things get a little tricky: These employees spend a great deal of their workday outside in the Florida sunshine, which often causes substantial glare on their Surface devices. In addition to problems that can be caused by the sun, SeaWorld’s team members obviously spend much of their time around water, and most of that is saltwater.

Saltwater can cause dual damage to unprotected devices: Water itself is, of course, a foe to electronics. And salt can cause corrosion to occur. The graininess of salt can also make it difficult to use and clean these touchscreen tablets.

In search of a remedy to the sun and salt situations, SeaWorld explored the various technologies offered by NuShield. The optimal solution was the DayVue film.

SeaWorldNuShield’s DayVue anti-reflective film technology allows SeaWorld staff to move easily from location to location within the park without interference from the sun’s rays. This easy-to-apply product shields the SeaWorld team’s Microsoft Surface tablets, allowing them to work wherever in the park they’re needed at any given time of the day, and without the interference of glare.

With medical and feeding needs at their fingertips, NuShield has empowered the SeaWorld staff to efficiently and effectively care for the park’s beloved animals. Timely attention and necessary adjustments to care can now be easily factored into the team’s daily assignments. After the staff cares for the animals, they’re able to check off tasks from their digital to-do lists and account for their daily routines—even with wet fingers.

This added layer of protection gives staff members a worry-free way to handle their touch screen devices, even after they’ve been immersed in salt water. This means the safety not only of the SeaWorld animals, but also of the team’s technological equipment, is well taken care of. Thanks to NuShield’s protective layer, the salt grains can easily be removed with the wipe of a damp cloth, and the daily duties of SeaWorld’s team can continue uninterrupted.

DayVue film incorporates a number of technologies that continue to make life easier for the staff at SeaWorld. Because the screens can be clearly seen, even through polarized sunglasses, any staff member is able to easily utilize his or her tablet. Prescription sunglasses and polarized lenses can be an obstacle for competing products. But NuShield’s technology accounts for the blue end of the spectrum and minimizes negative results, thus allowing much easier viewing for any user.

A Microsoft Surface 3 tablet

Salt remnants that could otherwise damage SeaWorld’s Surface 3 tablets are no longer a worry for the team. DayVue film is also scratch-resistant, which means the encasement of the Surface devices are well-protected from damage that could otherwise result from daily wear.

The scratch-resistant and sun-reflective properties of the DayVue film make NuShield’s pairing with SeaWorld a perfect marriage. The controlled coating thickness and refractive index of the film itself works wonders in Florida’s sunny outside environment. And thanks to the affordable pricing structure offered by NuShield, SeaWorld of Orlando was able to outfit all necessary Surface 3 tablets for its caretaking team, this ensuring that food, medication, and overall happiness is continually supplied to all the inhabitants of the facility’s underwater world.
