Three Uses for Outdoor TV Enclosures

Outdoor TV enclosures are a simple and cost effective way of using a TV screen outdoors and keeping it protected from the weather, variations in temperature and physical threats such as vandalism. Since the rise of the flat panel LCD display, taking a TV outdoors has become a common occurrence.

All sorts of companies, businesses and organizations now want to take a screen outdoors for a whole host of reasons. While some manufacturers produce specialist outdoor TV screens for this very purpose, these can be expensive and the return on investment can be quite poor because the TV screen will eventually need replacing, resulting in another heady investment. However, with an outdoor TV enclosure, generation after generation of standard LCD screens can be housed and enabled to function in almost any outdoor location.

Backyard TVs

Anybody who enjoys spending time on the porch or backyard, soaking up the sun and enjoying a barbecue, will find an outdoor TV a great complement to any back yard. With a TV secured inside an outdoor TV enclosure, no longer do you have to go back inside when your favorite show starts. Able to withstand the weather and variable summer and winter temperatures, an outdoor TV enclosure provides a secure environment to keep a TV outside all year round.

Householders aren’t the only ones making use of TV enclosures outside either. With smoking bans now in force in most states, having a TV outside a bar or restaurant, enables people to watch the big game and enjoy a beer, while not having to miss any of the action when they need to go outside for a cigarette. This helps customer retention and provides an excellent investment for any busy bar.

Outdoor Advertising screens

Digital signage has penetrated nearly every public arena. From shopping malls to airports, using LCD screens to display advertising is an effective method of reaching out of home audiences. Outdoor digital signage is even more effective, as the audience potential of a screen on a busy main street or outside a retail store is huge. Far more people will see an outdoor digital signage display than one indoors, which is why so many advertisers and retailers are now looking to install screens outdoors.

Traditionally, because of the high costs of outdoor TV systems, outdoor digital signage was normally only affordable by large advertising companies. However, because of the cost effectiveness and return of investment of outdoor TV enclosures, more and more smaller companies and retailers are using them to provide outdoor digital advertisements.

Outdoor Information Screens

Another popular use for outdoor TV enclosures is for protecting screens outside public buildings and service locations. Because LCD screens can display real time information, they are ideal for providing up to the minute news and information. Schools, colleges, train stations and even churches are using outdoor screens to communicate to people passing by or entering a building.

From schedules and important information to emergency broadcasts, outdoor screens are becoming the must have technology for all sorts of service providers. As outdoor LCD enclosures are so cost effective, they make outdoor information screens affordable for all sorts of organizations that require an effective form of outdoor messaging.
