• Our visors enhance perception of color and saturation—they allow the monitor to perform as designed
• Our monitor hoods have black interiors to absorb light, ensuring optimal screen viewing
• Our hoods will reduce eyestrain and the symptoms of Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS) for many users
• When inconvenient to control overhead lighting, create a small, dark viewing area for monitors with these visors
• If you need to see more accurate renditions of color and image, our hoods are usually the best answer
• A monitor hood will increase privacy for the user; our MVAL visors meet privacy requirements for HIPAA
• MVAL visors are lightweight and appropriate for use on flat screen and LED monitors
From the Federal Aviation Administration:
"The following measures shall be taken to avoid glare from artificial light sources:
• Locate light sources so that they do not shine...within 60 degrees of the center of the visual field
• If additional lighting is needed, use dim light sources rather than bright ones
• Use polarized light, shields, hoods, lens, diffusers, or visors.*
• Use indirect lighting where possible...."

Based on research by the National Academy of Sciences for the Department of the Navy, results showed that the light (luminance)… was lost at an alarming rate when glare screens were used (testing 7 different styles of glare screens--including several circular polarizing screens). Luminance (on average) was reduced from 115 cd/square meter to 34 cd/square meter! This result was obtained by placing the different glare screens over a smooth finish monitor in a dark room.
• We recommend hoods wherever flat screen and LCD displays are hampered by excessive light
• Use our visors at point-of-purchase displays, with x-ray film viewers, x-ray view boxes, or x-ray illuminators
• The depth of our MVAL monitors increases computer screen privacy dramatically in high security applications
• Use our hoods for television glare in settings with harsh light (if reduced viewing angles are acceptable)
• Yes, we provide custom solutions to meet your specific applications
• Remember that visors reduce viewing angles and only those sitting in front of the monitor will see the entire image
