Anti-glare Screen Protectors for Outdoor Use (Full Sun)

Greetings,
After looking at Internet research results (product descriptions, reviews, etc.), I am not confident about purchasing anything, with regard to Anti-glare Screen Protector solutions.
I am looking for recommendations to better view screen contents on my laptop as well as my dual 18 inch monitors (for karaoke lyrics) when hosting events that are outside in the full sun.

Thanks in advance for any and all feedback.

Best,
Gwen (aka The Karaoke Queen)

I built a thin plywood cover that folds (for storage) to cover my laptop. I too am very interested in finding something different.

I do not do Karaoke in the full sun for that reason...

I hope someone here has found something better!

Re: Anti-glare Screen Protectors for Outdoor Use (Full Sun)

I did the same as Kod. I made 3, 1 for my laptop 1 for singers monitor and 1 for audience monitor.

You can also improve laptop visibility by using high contrast mode in windows 10.

To turn high contrast on or off from the keyboard, press left Alt+left Shift+Print Screen.
Then turn brightness up to max.

Kod,

I appreciate your response. Do you happen to have a picture of your design? (I can\'t imagine what you have described.)

Thanks,
Gwen

Roy,

I appreciate your response too, and plan try your contrast adjustment recommendation. Do you happen to have a picture of your design you can share?


Thanks,
Gwen

Gwen,

I do not have a picture of mine, but it is similar to Roys design in the video, except mine is for the laptop computer and has a top that fits over the three sides.

Think of his lying on its side and placing a top cover over it. The top of my cover is slanted the same way. It is higher in the front and lower in the back to allow me to see over it.

I used the same hinge configuration Roy did.

I just use a 10x10 pop up, turn up the brightness and contrast on the tv (LCD) and they sing under it.
