All outdoor digital signage needs protection. They need waterproofing, temperature protection, and need to be rugged enough to prevent damage from impact and vandalism.
The most common method of protecting digital signage is by using an outdoor digital signage enclosure. Enclosures provide the necessary protection from bad weather, extreme temperatures, and physical damage.
However, outdoor digital signage enclosures serve other purposes.
Within an enclosure, LCD screens and their media players all look the same. However, enclosures come in all shapes, sizes, and designs. This variety makes digital signage much more aesthetically pleasing.
Some digital signage enclosures are simple boxes, yet others come in the form of kiosks, totems, or posters.
Outdoor digital signage enclosures play an important role in how the display system is mounted. A floor mounted enclosure that is bolted to the ground provides a more permanent solution. However, wall and ceiling mounted enclosures enable your digital signage to be installed almost anywhere. Whether it be hanging in train stations or on buildings, wall or ceiling mounted enclosures give you different options.
Most digital signage enclosures use the universal VESA mounting system, too, meaning any standard LCD screen is safe and secure without the need for modifications.
Return on investment
Outdoor digital signage enclosures offer an unrivalled return on investment compared with other systems.
For example, one solution is to use an outdoor TV system. While this sounds like a cost-effective alternative, it could end up costing you more in the long-term LCD screens have a limited lifespan of about five years, so they’ll eventually need replacing.
With an outdoor digital signage enclosure, you can replace the screen many times, as needed. While you replace the screen, the enclosure remains in place until the new screen is fitted. It’s a long-term solution that’s more cost-effective in the long term.
When the new screen does go in, your enclosure provides all the necessary protection. It’s weatherproof, temperature controlled, and is protected from damage.
This makes outdoor digital signage enclosures an ideal way of generating a huge return on investment, while still maintaining quality.
