A common question often encountered by customers looking to embark on outdoor digital signage, an outdoor TV or an outdoor information screen, is what type of screen can be placed inside?

Fortunately, because most modern TVs are built to the Video and Electronics and Standards Association (VESA) nearly any consumer or commercial grade TV can be fitted inside an LCD enclosure, whether its and LCD, plasma, 3D, HD or combinations of such, from sizes as small as 24” all the way to 70”.
Even touch screens can be housed in an LCD type enclosure, and no matter what type of device is enclosed, it will be comprehensively protected from the weather, impact and temperature.
This is the real advantage of an LCD enclosure, not only are you afforded all the protection an outdoor TV would offer (and beyond when it comes to physical protection), but you have complete freedom in what device you wish to install in it.
