Color scheme - Outdoor display

Hi,

Power Bi noob here.

Not sure if correct forum, question is related to usability I guess.

 

Tasked with preparing a simple, dashboard for large outdoor display, to be readable 24/7.

 

Any suggestions/tips for theme, color schemes for maximum readabilty - varying sunlight etc.?

 

If question not suitable for this forum, perhaps can suggest alternative.

 

Thanks

Display to mounted on outdoor wall at client manufacturing facility.

 

Dashboard to show about 6 KPi and maybe some brief narrative (that will change daily)

KPi data coming from Gateway(s).

 

Display will be client supply, don't have exact details, but from what I can gather 50"+ monitor, possibly OLED.

 

I am thinking Power BI dashboard(s) - chromless mode -via Chromium browser  running on inexpensive hardware (Intel comute stick, Raspberry Pi). Wifi connection to Power Bi Pro service.

 

 

Browser to run in kiosk mode, running some auto-refresh add-on possibly.

 

As I said I am trying to figure about suitable themes, color schemes.  Something that work night/day and in varying sunlight conditions.

Thanks
