If you’re at all familiar with the electronic devices used in the field today by various branches of the U.S. military, you’re probably also familiar with the concept of military-grade laptops or military-spec consumer electronic devices.
Military-Grade Laptops and Tablets
The Panasonic Toughbook, for instance, is probably the best-known of the military-grade laptops used by our fighting forces.
If you’ve been working in the cruise ship industry for, say, 10 or 15 years, you’ve almost certainly noticed some changes to cruise ship technology.
Prior to the late 1990s, or perhaps even the early part of the 21st century, for instance, most ship pursers were still keeping the majority of their financial records on actual paper.
A cruise line’s marketing manager spent a good portion of their day working the (land line) phones in those days, long before Facebook or Twitter have even been conceived. A housekeeping administrative assistant carried her marching orders around on a clipboard, not a tablet computer. A shore excursion manager was forced to find a payphone if something went wrong, and a call back to the ship was deemed necessary. Today, they wouldn’t dream of walking onto land without a fully charged smartphone.
Think back to a time 10 years ago—or even five years ago. Are you having trouble envisioning what life was like before your smartphone parceled out every piece of information you could possibly ask for? Do you find yourself wondering how life even existed when you didn’t have your tablet at your fingertips at all times?
Technology has definitely changed the way we live our lives. There was a time when the only way you could catch your favorite movies and TV shows was to literally rearrange your life around the schedules set forth by the television networks and local cinemas. Now we live in a world in which you can watch whatever you want—whenever and wherever you desire—all with the magic of those wonderful mobile devices we call tablets.
The Concerns of Mobile Convenience
Whether you realize it or not, when you’re watching a video, a movie or a TV show on your tablet, you’re often catching a good amount of glare as well. Not only can the bright and glaring tablet screen be annoying to stare at for the duration of a movie or a few episodes of a TV show, but the strain can also cause health issues. Enhanced by sunlight, overhead fluorescent lights, or even the regular lighting in your home, the glare from tablets can cause great strain on the eyes, which can lead to severe headaches.
As the days grow warmer, more people will spend time outside enjoying the sun, sand and water. Boating enthusiasts flock to the nearest body of water as part of their warm weather rituals. Fishing, swimming and other water sports abound.
Electronic Marine Navigation
Before jumping into your boat, it might be time to check your marine navigation equipment along with other electronic devices and protect them from the effects of sunglare. On the water sunlight reflects from multiple angles, making the ability to read LCD displays very difficult. The GPS equipment can also be damaged by salt water and sea spray, and prolonged exposure to sunlight.
The DayVue film has a very low tack adhesive rubber backing which holds it on the screen. This allows for easy installation on flat LCD surfaces and easy adjustment if necessary. It usually takes less than 5 minutes to install the film and push out the larger bubbles. Smaller bubbles usually dissipate within 24 hours.
NuShield offers the DayVue film in sizes to fit any LCD display up to 40 inch diagonal and the company currently has sizes for over 500 different GPS displays. This includes manufacturers such as Eagle, Garmin, Humminbird, Lowrance, Navman, Raymarine, and Simrad fishfinders, chartplotters and other GPS devices.
NuShield also makes the Triple A film which helps to eliminate glare on televisions placed inside larger cabins.
“Once again, I’d like to say a MAJOR thanks for your OUTSTANDING (and quite unexpected, surprising and refreshing I might add LOL) customer service. I’m talking your company up to all my boating friends in particular, as the shield is a Godsend for GPS/Sonar/Fish Finder out on the water!” – Mary Gentile, Matlacha, FL
“NuShield is a great product. Those of us that use computers and monitors for navigation on the waterways cannot do without NuShield! It works great inside the car when polarized glasses are used.” – MH, Gray, TN
“…Thought I would tell you that the ones I got for my boat are working great. Less glare and no water spots.” — Kevin Hinkemeyer, St Augusta, MN
“Great product to use on marine electronics. I have tried several other brands and none even come close to being as effective or ease to install. Keep up the good work.” — Alton Sing, Elizabethtown, NC
“I installed on my MFD83d I liked so much I am putting it on my fishfinder also.” – MB, Peabody, MA
“To all the team at NuShield, I can’t believe the difference the DayVue screen has made to my Lowrance display in my boat and have been recommending it to all the fishermen I know in Darwin.” – Steve Jones, Darwin, Australia
Enjoy your water sports, fishing, and fun on the water this summer – but first make sure your electronic screens are well protected using NuShield DayVue.

NuShield Anti-Reflective, Anti Glare Protection for Laptops
As the weather is changing, the bright sunshine, the long days and alluring summer bloom seems to call everyone outside. If you work at home, on your laptop, you may be tempted to take it out to the park for a change of scenery and a boost of creativity. Even watching a movie by yourself outside, under the quiet shade of a tree, can be very rewarding on a cool summer afternoon.
However, the biggest problem of taking your laptop outside on a sunny day is the screen reflections and glare — making it nearly impossible to see what’s on the screen instead of what is in front of it. Even indoors, brightness coming through the window or from overhead lights as is found in a lot of work places, can be a nuisance. NuShield’s range of protective films offer a solution to any indoor or outdoor problem that helps to cut down the glare and making your work a little easier.
Perfect visibility even in broad daylight
The NuShield® DayVue™ Antireflective Screen Protector gives you perfect visibility by cutting down reflections and glare — necessary when working outdoors in bright, sunny conditions. The colors are not compromised but the film reduces reflections from harsh light sources. The DayVue has UV protection and filters out the sun’s glare, so you can read the LCD display easily in outdoors.
Kathleen, a writer from Morrisville, VT, says she had to squint at her laptop when she worked on it at her back deck due to the reflection. The NuShield DayVue film solved the problem and she can now ‘see the words on the screen rather than (her) own face or trees behind.’
Easily wipe off fingerprints, oils
With a NuShield DayVue film protecting your LCD display you can take your laptop to the beach or pool without worry. Suntan lotion, sand or water wipes off easily and the film allows you to read the display while you are wearing polarized sunglasses. You don’t have to hide under the umbrella any more.
Real protection against scratches
All of NuShield films are available at affordable prices. Ellen of Carlsbad, CA is so impressed with its durability and reasonable price that she claims that if she had not been a teacher-librarian, she would have probably sold NuShield films at outdoor cafes. NuShield screen protective films also protect your laptop screen from scratches — when that errant Frisbee flies against the laptop screen! According to David McGuire from Towanda, PA, all of the advertised features of NuShield work perfectly in reality.
The films use low-tack rubber as an adhesive, so it does not leave residue when pulled off. It is easy to install and just as easy to remove. These protective films are also available for Smartphones, PC tablets, PDAs, iPhones, LCD monitors, GPS devices, iPods and other electronic devices with LCD displays.
Image reflections on the viewfinder of a digital camera is a phenomenon that becomes the bane of a photographer’s existence when shooting where there are a lot of bright lights or outside in the sun. To combat this problem, you can get your camera, a pair of sunglasses, figuratively speaking, and the NuShield® DayVue™ Antireflective Screen Protector Film that is particularly good at reducing image glare.
What Causes Screen Reflections
Both the sun and any reflective object in the view can cause glare. When the sunlight hits a reflective object at a certain angle – a reflective angle – it reflects into the camera viewfinder. Void this by either edging the objects away from the camera or fitting a NuShield DayVue camera glare filter to the viewfinder.
The Challenges of Bright Sun
Photographers often have to shoot out in the sun. Picnics or graduation ceremony, Easter egg hunt or beach weddings — most of these occasions demand a photographer to take their camera and click photos in locations that have the lot of sunlight. Although it works in reducing glare, hiding the sun behind a tree is not always possible. For example, while taking pictures on a beach, the photographer will be hard pressed to find a shady tree. Using a NuShield DayVue camera anti-reflective filter on the viewfinder of the camera solves these problems.
NuShield DayVue Anti-Reflective Screen Protector
The NuShield DayVue screen protector adheres to the surface of the display to reduce reflections. With this protective film, you are able to compose the shot and see the result, even if you are wearing polarized sunglasses. The DayVue anti-reflective filter can also be adhered to surfaces of any other electronic device like the LCD display of a Smartphone, laptop, tablet and so on which helps you read these gadgets in bright sunlight without a problem.
The Advantages of Using NuShield DayVue Anti-Reflectives
NuShield DayVue is complete with scratch resistance that protects the screen from damage. It uses low tack adhesive to adhere to the surfaces, so when it is removed, no residue is left behind. The light cancelling technology helps to read the displays.
And DayVue films improve the visibility of camera display whether your sunglasses are on or off. Photographers no longer need to interrupt the flow of shooting to adjust sunglasses. The photographer’s eye adjustments to light can be a huge nuisance if the camera is not equipped with an anti-reflective camera filter on the viewfinder.
Customers who used NuShield DayVue camera anti-reflective filters rave about the product. Tom Pepper from Jackson, MI says that NuShield DayVue is, “an amazing improvement in viewing quality”. According to Wesley Howard of Portland, OR, NuShield DayVue is the “best screen protector in the world”. Many happy customers have lauded their customer supported and quick responding customer care staff, too.
