LCD Enclosures – Perfect Digital Signage Protection.
LCD Enclosures are used to protect outdoor digital signage, due to the vulnerable electronic hardware that makes this dynamic signage jaw dropping.
No longer are flat screen televisions the property of the elite, with new technology emerging on a daily basis the prices are dropping dramatically this is why from the mom and pop store to the large corporation who are installing these screens in outdoor locations. Not forgetting many home users who have a flat screen in the backyard.
LCD Enclosures – Why use them?
With the introduction of flat screen monitors into factory environments for factory information systems, the demand for protective plasma and LCD enclosures has increased; with the use of LCD housings you can deploy either a digital signage solution or a factory information solution knowing that the hardware is protected from anything that would normally harm the hardware.
These special LCD enclosures are equipped with everything you need except the TV, inside the housing is a mounting frame for the screen as well as a cooling and heating system that keeps the hardware including a small factor PC, thin client or media player and the screen at the best possible temperature, prolonging the life of the hardware maximises the return on investment.
These can also be fitted with interactive panels so that the entire digital signage comes alive and engages with the consumer directly, this is the most relevant type of marketing presently on the market. Remember if you feel as though you are being sold to as a group you will engage less, however if you feel it is tailored exactly to your requirements and your needs you will engage more and even consider buying more openly than if you where in a group.
These touch panels come in many different types from resistive touch, Sound Acoustic Wave (SAW) or infrared, however resistive touch comes out the best for outdoor use as there have much better weatherproofing, they are more stable and normally last between 3 and 5 years.
Then there is the recent introduction to 3D digital signage, here the ads will just jump out at you off the screen and scream bye me! But it will be some time before we see this outdoors.
