This monitor hood is built specifically for the Apple 27-inch iMac 2012-2015 monitor! It measures 25.5" horizontally (65cm) and 17" vertically (38.1cm) and is 8.25" deep (20.9cm). (Slim Hoods = 6" depth 15.2cm)
Our new design features include:
- New slimmer-looking design
- Improved exterior material durability
- Stronger elastic attachment cord
- Small notch on each side to access USB ports
This fully-assembled, easy-to-install monitor hood creates a shaded environment for your screen, offering serious anti-glare and privacy protection, which is ideal for those involved in color-critical work. The eight ¼-inch depth effectively keeps private information safe from onlookers, providing an excellent accessory in testing, banking, and medical facilities.
At the core of our monitor hoods is a high-density fiberboard, the outside covering is a very tough embossed cloth material (similar to book covering) and the interior is a durable non-reflective woven material that is neutral gray. An elastic cord holds the hood in place and makes for easy installation and removal when desired. The elastic cord attachment allows for a wide range of variation of monitor shapes. Rigid plastic strips on the front edges provide reinforcement, protection, and a finished look. These hoods are intended for indoor type usage.
Monitor Hoods are made in-house, and we provide all of the essential items needed for simple no-hassle installation, including bumper buttons for positioning, foam strips for cushioning and light blocking, and detailed installation instructions.
This custom monitor hood ships flat, ready to be unfolded and the elastic cord attachment is pre-installed and ready to be mounted. (Also see installation video on adjacent tab).
These hoods are custom made for the monitor noted in the title, but can be readjusted in width, larger or smaller, to fit your next screen with a few minor adjustments. Custom hoods are available to fit monitors not already listed on our website, up to 46" wide, see our custom hood page: https://www.photodon.com/c/Custom-Monitor-Hoods.html
- Monitor hoods do not block light coming from behind the viewer or eliminate reflections in rooms with excessive lighting.
- If your monitor has heat exhausting vents along the top edge, a hood will block these vents unless you use something to lift the hood slightly.
Monitor Hood Pros and Cons
Is a monitor hood or an anti-glare film right for you? Here are some ideas to consider as you make a decision.....
|Monitor Hood Pros - The benefits of a monitor hood versus an anti-glare screen protector
|A monitor hood cuts down glare without compromising image clarity.
|while high anti-glare screen protectors can cause pixeling and decreased image clarity.
|A monitor hood allows for accurate color calibration.
|while anti-glare films can cause decreased image quality and may inhibit proper color calibration.
|Monitor hoods provide an ideal amount of privacy for computers adjacent to each other.
|while standard anti-glare films do not provide privacy. However we do have Privacy Filters as well to help with privacy issues.
|Eye Fatigue & Glare Reduction In Ambient Light
|A monitor hood aids eye fatigue and glare reduction by eliminating ambient light from overhead and side light sources.
|Anti-glare screen protectors allow for glare reduction and relief from eye fatigue, but do not reduce ambient light from hitting the screen.
|Monitor Hood Cons - When a screen protector makes better sense than a monitor hood
|Hoods are limited in size to monitors and TVs up to 46 inches.
|while anti-glare screen protectors are available for all flat screens up to 100” diameter.
|A monitor hood does not shield a screen’s surface, therefore cannot prevent scratches or smudges.
|while screen protectors shield screen from scratches, smudges and other wear and tear.
|The high-quality material used on Photodon's monitor hoods is meant for indoor use only.
|We are a custom shop, and want to help find your solution. Please contact [email protected] if you are in need of an outdoor monitor hood.
Hood OptionsDual Monitor Hood:
Our adjustable Dual Monitor Hood option covers two identical monitors side by side. The angle of the screens is adjustable from straight across and up to 45-degrees.
The calibration door option is for professional persons who calibrate their monitors. The calibration process ensures the color seen on the screen is the same as it will be when printed either in-house or at another facility. The sliding door size is 3" x 2.25" and is available for all 8.25" hoods.
The slim monitor hood provides a reduced depth option at 6-inches from front to back, lighter weight, but same professional design and attachment.
