  • Recommended: QLED, MicroLED
  • Supported: OLED, LED
  • Not recommended for extended use: Plasma, Cathode Ray Tube (CRT), Liquid Crystal Display (LCD), older technologies

To ensure the best performance and display quality, to take good care of TVs, and to control energy consumption, we recommend:

  • Setting automatic brightness and contrast.

  • Managing the time of display of each artwork through the app.

  • Not displaying a still image longer than 90 minutes.

  • Switching to different frame colors if displaying framed artworks for long periods of time.

Long exposure of still images or frames may result in what we commonly refer to as burn-in, which is actually an uneven aging due to usage.

Burn-in happens over time when TVs display still images for long periods of time. This effect results in some areas of the screen with less definition or poor coloring. 

The effect is progressive and it may not be immediately visible after one long exposure. That’s why there are some recommendations to take into account to keep taking good care of screens. 

Burn-in can happen in any TV, regardless of its technology. Most sensitive to burn-in are OLED TVs and plasma TVs. WindowSight recommends using QLED or MicroLED technologies. 

Phantom effect should not be confused with burn-in. Phantom effect happens when an image temporarily stays on the screen for a few moments after displaying it. This can be an indicator that the TV may have suffered from burn-in if it had been on display for longer.

Features

Search and Explore
WindowSight aims to be a place for discovery and happy encounters. Whether you are looking for something specific or wish to be surprised, you can use the Search section in the app.

Compilations
Compilations are general categories to explore the latest and trending content on each topic or artistic field, for example, “photography” or “black and white”, created by WindowSight.

My Library
Sort and organize your favorites on your Library by accessing the content you have liked, your playlists, and the artists and Collections you follow…

Playlists
Playlists are managed and played through the mobile app. Build them with the artworks you like, for instance: graphic design, monochrome, architecture, etc. and feature different artists to make your own streamable exhibitions.

Playlists by Artists
Artists may create their own playlists, featuring their and other artists’ content and offer a unique view on their personal interests. 

Following Playlists
You can also follow other users’ and artists’ playlists for easy access and to stay updated.

Most probably, the artwork has been unpublished and will come back soon, or removed entirely from the platform, either by the artist or WindowSight.

Artists have the option of organizing their projects in Collections. Just like playlists, Collections can be followed in order to stay tuned for new artworks added to them.

Account and Payments

You can edit your account and payment information through the app and through our website.

Users who do not wish to see or display content not considered suitable for all audiences may activate the Sensitive Content switch to block Nudity or Mature content. 

The Sensitive Content switch can be easily activated and deactivated through the app’s Settings.

  • Nudity includes depiction of any human body, regardless of their gender, without full clothing. 
  • Mature Content includes content that may trigger a negative response on the audience or which some may prefer not to display. 

When the switches are off, no content labeled as mature or as nudity will show up anywhere in the app nor will it be displayed on your TV.

Your membership fee will be charged on the provided bank account every month on the same day as the first payment took place.

First payment takes place after the free trial period.
