Due to the coronavirus outbreak, Michigan's governor has ordered all non-essential businesses to close. We will continue to accept orders but will be unable to process them until at least April 14, 2020. We will be able to process orders for Face Shields as they come in. We do have limited capabilities, if you are associated with a business that is deemed essential. We will be available for questions/information via email and live chat. Thank you for your patience and business!
If you're reading this blog post, chances are you already know what an optical comparator is. Until we heard from a customer at Modern Manufacturing & Engineering, WE didn't know. But we were soon schooled in the optical comparator universe.
When owner Don Basch listened to Governor Gretchen Whitmer, Michigan's Governor, address to citizenson March 23, 2020, he, along with everyone else in the state, heard the news that all non-essential businesses were ordered to close their doors until at least April 13th. That night, Don went home, got on the internet, and researched what he could do to help protect the medical and emergency responder professionals in his Traverse City community.
"I found a local group that shared a Google doc showing PPE itemsthat hospitals are needing to help keep doctors and nurses protected. One of the items was face shields with a suggested design." Don went to the Photodonshop and got to work making a shield using some materials he had in stock. After tinkering with the shieldpattern, he constructed the first shield. He also ordered someadditionalsupplies needed to make the shields.
"We now havesupplies on hand to make about 1,500 shields," Don said. Photodon plans to provideas many shields as they can and currently have face shields ready to deliver. "We just want to do what we can to help with what we are capable of doing," Don said.
Andy was on a mission to find a screen protector that would keep his new 55-inch television protected from scratches AND his eyes protected from eye strain. After researching the Photodon website, he enthusiastically placed his order with an MXB blue light cut screen protector, but it wasn't just for his large gaming television monitor. He also bought MXB blue light cut screen protectors for a 2nd TV and for his iPhone!
Reason (and we install – fairly local)
Why? Andy's biggest concern, even ahead of keeping his devices in pristine condition, was conserving his eye health. He was trying to diminish his chances of developing macular degeneration like his grandma had and like his mom has now. Photodon's blue light cut screen protectors can help to reduce the threat of this potentially life-altering condition.
Andy chose Photodon for its MXB screen protectors because his research led him to us. Our informational site, accompanied by blogs, research, and videos, helped convince him and his parents to use our MXB screen protectors to protect their devices and their eye health.
And because Andy lives relatively close to the Photodon shop, he was able to have us install his new MXB screen protector onto his 55-inch television for him in our cleanroom.
How is it working for Andy now? "The protectors are amazing! My eyes do not get tired as quickly as they did, and I am sleeping better than I was before them."
You can also help regulate your sleep patterns, prevent over-eating, reduce eye stress, and lessen your risk for macular degeneration just like Andy is doing now. Let the sales team at Photodon know how we can assist you! We are available Monday through Friday, 9am – 5pm EST, at 847-377-1185 and at email@example.com.
The Mascoutah Police Department of Mascoutah, IL came to Photodon for help with solving a privacy problem. Since coming up with custom solutions for our customers is what we do best, we were well-equipped and happy to help.
Police officers use computers in their police cars so that they have ready access to information. A great deal of public information is retrieved through these computers — information necessary for them to do their jobs effectively. Why? Sometimes they need to get the position of other police officers in the area, or they need to look up suspect information at a crime scene. These computers — often ruggedized tablets –are also used for record-keeping and tracking vital data such as license plates.
The Mascoutah Police Department's Challenge: Help Us Keep Public Information Protected
Lieutenant Matt S. called us and said that his department's Motion R12 Rugged tablets were installed on the dash of their squad cars. The problem? When the officers leave the car, the screen is left in plain view, leaving the public's personal information in the database vulnerable to wandering eyes.
He wondered if we had any suggestions as to how to help keep information on the screen from being seen by people outside the car. He explained that it is their duty to protect the public's private data.
We offered to send 5"x3" samples of our privacy filter materials to Lieutenant Matt so that he and his colleagues could decide which of our filter options would work best to solve their problem. We offer three types of privacy filters from which they could choose:
Choice #1: 2-way adhesive privacy filters (P2S) — meant to be installed one time and left in place and offers privacy from left to right;
Choice #2: 4-way adhesive privacy filters (P4S) — also installed once and offering privacy from left to right and top to bottom;
Choice #3: 2-way non-adhesive privacy filters (P2L) — designed to have the option to be taken on and off of the screen several times.
2-way Privacy Filter Demo
4-way Privacy Filter Demo
After receiving the samples, the team of police officers decided to purchase the 2-way adhesive privacy filter for the computers in their squad cars. Problem solved. Here is what Lieutenant Matt had to say:
I installed the screen protectors the same day we received them. They fit like a glove and the officers love them compared to the ones we had before.
The overall satisfaction is a "5-star" rating.
I appreciate the time and assistance and will definitely relay our satisfaction with the Photodon screen protectors to other departments using the Motion R12 tablets.
We love helping our customers solve problems, especially in protecting their digital gear from damage, glare, and visual data breaches. We can make privacy filters for first responders, emergency personnel, fire departments, and more. If we don't have a particular privacy filter on our website, we will custom cut the filters for your device. Custom is what we do.
Several months ago, a new customer named Jason – an owner of a Maaco Collision Repair & Auto Painting business in Minnesota – called Photodon. His problem? He had been purchasing a protective cover for his Satorius TopMix2 Paint Terminal that
A) didn't fit (it was like a bag around the machine);
B) was expensive (around $100.00); and
C) had to be replaced monthly because the plastic would get damaged when the paint had to be cleaned off it.
The TopMix touch screen is connected to a scale and mixer. When the paint is mixed, as you can imagine, it can splatter. In addition, the paint shop workers often touch the screen with gloves that have paint on them. This means that the very expensive touch screen needs to be protected.
Jason explained, "I use a paint thinner to clean the screen about once a week, and the protector I'm using gets damaged quickly. I'm spending a fortune on these protective covers. "I'm hoping you can help me."
Increasingly, companies find it essential that images, data, and other information be protected from visual hacking.
Leadership teams are making the decision to provide their employees with computer privacy screens so as to decrease the risk of private and/or sensitive information getting within sight of unauthorized personnel or clients.
