Once only found in metropolis centers like New York’s Time Square or London’s Piccadilly Circus, outdoor digital signage has now spread from major urban locations to nearly every town and city in the country.
Now found in many high streets, outdoor screens are providing us with advertising, branding, information and news. And they can provide a good return for outdoor advertisers with outdoor digital signage being able to reach huge audiences, far larger than the audiences received by indoor screens.
The price of outdoor and rugged screens proves too costly for many installers, however, which is why more and more outdoor TV screens are being installed in outdoor LCD enclosures to provide a means of outdoor digital signage, without the hefty price tag, but still providing protection against the various outdoor elements that can disable a screen.
LCD enclosures provide not only protection from the weather and variable temperatures of an outdoor environment, they also provide comprehensive protection against more subtle elements that can be just as damaging. Corrosion, humidity, static and bright sunlight can all lead to potential problems for an outdoor screen—not to mention the risk of vandalism.
The protection offered by an LCD enclosure is not the only reason for housing screens in them. Often, enclosed hardware can last a lot longer than manufacturer’s expectations due to the controlled environment inside the enclosure, which keeps the screen free from dust and other minor hazards.
As the growth of outdoor digital signage continues to expand, and with more and more smaller businesses wishing to get involved, the use of LCD enclosures is continuing to expand too.
Used for all manner of outdoor digital signage, advertising, branding, information screens and even outdoor TV entertainment, LCD enclosures have been deployed in some of the most hostile environments imaginable, from sub-zero temperatures to high heat location.
