Good communication is an essential aspect of any business. Whether it’s in retail, manufacturing, service industries or a modern educational establishment, effective communication with staff, customers and visitors is vital. But communicating with all these people is not easy.
Different forms of communication have different advantages and disadvantages when it comes to communication and providing information. Traditional paper-based noticeboards, for instance, rely on somebody posting up the information, and in large area locations, this can be time-consuming and problematic.
Even modern communication methods—mobile phones and email—have their downsides as it is not always possible to know everybody’s phone numbers and not everybody checks their email regularly or has access to it.
Information screens provide an effective form of communication for many different applications, and have many advantages over many other methods of communication.
LCD screens situated in regular and strategic location throughout an area provides a clear, visual platform for displaying information. Using media players connected to a network enables instant uploading and dissemination of information on LCD screens, providing customers and staff instant access to important news as and when it happens.
A common sight in airports and train stations, LCD screens are ideal at providing timetable information and news of cancellations because of the real-time nature and speed at which information can be delivered. For this reason, a network of LCD information screens is also ideal for emergency situations, which is why many educational campuses use screens for information provision.
The only downside to using LCD screens, especially in outdoor or industrial type environments is the need to protect them. Weather elements, temperature, dust and risk of damage through impacts and vandalism all need protecting against for any network of LCD screens.
Fortunately, LCD enclosure provide an ideal form of protection for nearly any location, not only do they provide comprehensive outdoor and industrial protection, they enable information screens to be used in environments such as ski-resorts or hot-weather locations ensuring the enclosed screen is kept at the ideal temperature and free from any harmful elements.
