A great tool for photographers needing a digital darkroom, a testing facility looking to keep test scores honest and for the airport, bank or doctor’s office where sensitive information needs to be kept private.
Computer monitor hoods are also great for the every day user who may sit under bright florescent lighting or near a sunny/bright window. Reducing/eliminating the glare on your screen makes your data is easier to read and reduces your risk for CVS (computer vision syndrome).
Ultimately a monitor hood will make you more alert and focused on your work – not on the eye strain and headaches that come with fighting glare on your screen. It helps reduce fatigue.
You’ve got options!
When ordering your monitor hood from us you have a few choices:
One is a calibration door. This is a small sliding door that can be built with your hood (made to fit your monitor!) This door allows you to drop down your calibration spider to, well, calibrate your display image!!
Instead of removing the entire hood and replacing it once you have the spider in place, you will literally “open the door” to a smarter way of calibrating, creating the digital darkroom that works!
If you need the sides of the hood shortened or made longer, we’ll make it so!
Need your hood a little deeper than what we offer? How about a little less deep? We can take care of that too!
Our hoods have options that you can choose from right on the product page. It’s like building your very own unique hood yourself!
Didn’t find what you were looking for in our hood selection?
We can custom build a hood for you! Be sure to get a hold of us to work with our capable and knowledgeable Team. We’re always happy to help you!
So who uses a computer monitor hood?
Maybe *you* should!
- Do you find yourself squinting to see past the glare on your screen?
- After an hour or two at your computer do your eyes get tired?
- Does working on your computer give you a headache?
- Is the lighting in your office bright and hard to avoid?
- Are you working with private information?
If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you may want to consider a computer monitor hood!
We also carry Privacy Shields which give you glare reduction and privacy just like a hood but without the total coverage of a Monitor Hood.
