MONITOR VISORS AND MONITOR HOODS TO CORRECT GLARE PROBLEMS OR TO REPLACE UNDERACHIEVING GLARE SCREENS
- Visor fits a variety of computer sizes - width expands from 15.3" to 27"
- Can help eliminate symptoms associated with Comp. Vision Syndrome
- Ensures maximum glare reduction with an extra-deep bezel
- Interior surface features a light absorbing dark matte finish
- Perfect for larger monitors - extends out to 30" in width from 16.5"
- Deep bezel depth ensures maximum privacy
- Outperforms most other anti-glare screen products
- Enhances the perception of colors and saturation on the monitor
READ THE FACTS BELOW TO UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU HAVE BEEN MISSING
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...."

WHY GLARE SCREENS AND FILTERS DON'T WORK VERY WELL
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.
OUR VISORS WORK ON MANY LCD MONITORS, FLAT SCREEN DISPLAYS, TV SETS AND VIDEO MONITORS
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
