From outdoor TVs, information screens, to outdoor digital signages, all of these things have one thing in common, that is they use LCD displays. There is only a slight difference between the typical LCD screen that you use inside of your home and the LCD screen that is used outdoors. With outdoor LCD displays, you can expect them to come with protective barriers that allow them to be safe from outdoor elements for better functionality while outdoors.
A lot of companies make sure to produce a wide range of outdoor LCD displays owing to the increasing demand for outdoor digital signages. However, they can be quite expensive if you compare them with the price of the typical indoor LCD display. A lot of companies have shied away from using these outdoor advertising means because of their price. That is why, as of today, they prefer to use outdoor TVs first to entertain consumers as well as to offer some relevant information outdoors.
If you decide to use and have an outdoor LCD display installed, here are some crucial details to keep in mind.
• Outdoor LCD display enclosure: Since outdoor LCD displays are akin to those that you can find indoors, it is best to have them protected at all times while outdoors using he most appropriate LCD enclosures. These enclosures are usually made as per the standards of the TV manufacturer. This means that these enclosures come in different sizes allowing the housing of any model or make of your outdoor TV of choice.
Most of the time, LCD enclosures offer several benefits to your LCD screen from keeping it free from dust and particles, keeping it at steady temperatures, keeping it dry from moisture and rain, and offering a more heavy-duty protection against robbery threats and vandals. By making sure that all of these benefits are obtained from your enclosures, you will not have to worry about damaging your outdoor LCD displays.
• Weatherproofing: The most common outside element that is the number one cause of damaged outdoor LCD displays is the weather. Electronics and water are not intended to be mixed. Thus, you have to make sure to keep your LCD displays as dry as it can ever be. Rainfall must thus be kept out of the way from your LCD displays. However, this can pose a lot of challenges. You see, TV screens of all shapes and sizes will need to have some access to air for them not to get overheated.
All outdoor LCD screens have their own ventilations systems for air to go in and remove excess heat away from the device. But then, this can serve as an entry point to any rainfall or water. To resolve this issue, LCD display enclosures have been made to come with shaped channels that do not allow water going inside but just allow airflow to permeate. This results in both the prevention of moisture intrusion and the introduction of heat transfer effectively.
• Temperature control: The enclosures used on outdoor LCD displays offer a well-controlled environment in order for the screen to be kept at constant temperatures. They come with cooling fans to transfer some heat produced by the LCD display as well as heater systems for proper temperature control inside the TV enclosure.
