Do you use a curved monitor?
If you use a curved ultrawide monitor, you know the performance and efficiency offered by this type of screen is unparalleled.

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:
2-way adhesive privacy filters (P2S) — meant to be installed one time and left in place; offers privacy from left to right;
2-way non-adhesive privacy filters (P2L) — has the option to be taken on and off of the screen several times; offers privacy from left to right.
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:
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.

Privacy filters, also known as privacy screens, are like a set of vertical blinds for your computer monitor or any device with a screen, but on a nanoscale. Most modern-day filters are only the thickness of a common business card — .012” (.3 mm). Unlike vertical blinds, the louvers are permanently set in the full open (on edge) position.
There are approximately 42 louvers in the 12-pt. letter “a” shown below. This makes for about 715 of these louvers per inch (25.4mm) and equates to thousands of mini-louvers per typical screen. The thickness of a dollar bill (.0043”) is approximately the same thickness as 2 louvers in the images below.
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 to decrease the risk of private and/or sensitive information getting within sight of unauthorized personnel or clients.
Hospitals and medical offices can greatly benefit from privacy filters on their computer monitors and other electronic devices so that patient information is viewed only by those persons who are authorized to see the information. Photodon carries three types of privacy filters: Two are adhesive (Two-way privacy filters and four-way privacy filters), and the third is non-adhesive and 2-way. We specialize in custom cutting.
