On top of that, my prescription sunglasses are polarized and completely block the light from some displays.

Just tilt your head  ;D

You've got that right!  There is a company manufacturing console "tents" for specific boards.  That's not what they call them, but I saw them at LDI, NAMM, or both.  They are black fabric with a light weight frame and cover the display but leave enough of the console exposed to mix from.

I wonder if anything like this would help on the console screen directly.

I needed a new screen protection for a laptop that I use at FOH so I picked up one to try out for this summers festivals.

Use a black tent instead of white. I also use my laptop as a sunblocker if needed. I put it  on the doghouse, with the keyboard facing away from me. I then can position the screen over the console screen.

Do boards at this level provide external display outputs? (even if it's an internal header somewhere?)

If you need a better daylight solution you can mirror your DiGiCo SD engine to the offline editor running on a WIN Computer with a huge daylight viewable screen or even touchscreen.

Ya, Whatever. Just throw a '57 on it, and get off my stage.

Even that didn't work. These things weren't viewable even slightly in ambient light levels where the Midas and Yamaha consoles were clear as day (during the day...haha). A black blanket covering the entire console was the only way the guys could see their screens. Two different consoles at two different shows.

I bought a blue opaque top for my ez-up. If fixed the sunlight problem. Then i had this festival where the organizer got all upset that i had blue top and everyone else had white. She had quite a hissy fit.
So, i just reinstalled the original white top over the blue. Problem solved.

I have not seen that before, but it looks very interesting.  The product I saw was truly a small black tent to fit on (or over) the console display and most of the board. I think I found the product I saw: www.consoleshades.net

I made a sun blocker out of foam core for my Performer, primarily because the Fader Glow color coding of the fader slots was not visible in sun light.  Kind of hard to tell what layer you're on.
