    How to determine your LCD/Backlight nit value

    I have both spec sheets for the backlight inverter and the actual LCD and have scoured it. I can not find any mention of the 'nit' value. I know 300+ is needed for sunny days and I want to make sure I have a bright enough display. I have a Sharp LQ10D344. Is there some formula to determine this? I used the search function and couldn't find anything that addressed this issue.

    Thanks!

    You may see it listed as candelas/meters^2 or cd/m^2.

    thanks for the responses and I saw that website as well InFix...if it was 33,705 nits I might have to shield my eyes..hehe. And I don't have a controller for this LCD yet so bringing it outside isn't an option quite yet. I will look over the spec sheet again and see if I can locate the 'candelas/meters^2 or cd/m^2' as you stated supermatty.
