When placing a screen outside, there are two choices. Either, use an Outdoor TV, one designed to operate in all weathers, or use a standard TV and place it in an outdoor LCD enclosure, but what advantages does using an LCD enclosure offer?
One of the biggest advantages for using a TV in an outdoor enclosure is the cost savings. An Outdoor TV is highly expensive, often costing many times the price of standard models. Even with the price of a standard TV and LCD enclosure, the combined cost is a lot lower than outdoor TVs. When using more than one screen, this saving can make a huge difference on a budget, and makes getting return on the investment a lot easier and lot quicker to attain.
While outdoor TVs provide defense against weather and excessive temperatures, this protection is limited. An outdoor TV may run at temperatures as low minus five degrees, but what happens if temperatures drop further? Freak weather and temperature extremes that fall outside the normal conditions for an area could leave to the outdoor TVs failing.
Made from steel, LCD enclosures are incredibly tough. While outdoor TVs are designed to withstand impacts, their toughness pales compared to the rugged qualities of a steel enclosure. With shatterproof screens and anti-tamper locks, LCD enclosure provides unrivaled defense against vandalism and theft.
LCD enclosures are customizable for almost any location. In extremely cold locations where temperatures regularly plummet below zero, heaters fitted inside the enclosure prevent internal freezing, while in warm locations where temperatures regularly exceed forty degrees, additional cooling fans or air conditioners are an option.
Another great advantage of LCD enclosures is their flexibility. The same enclosure can be used for several generations of screen, so when the screen needs replacing (as all TVs eventually do) the same LCD enclosure can still provide the protection, enabling you to source any make or model of the screen size you desire.
