If you are looking to deploy digital signage outdoor, you may want to consider the location that the signage will be deployed in and calculate what the likelihood of vandalism or theft is to the digital signage hardware.
How cost effective is digital signage?
One of the many things that make digital signage so important in this day and age, is how little or as much it costs to purchase, install, run and maintain. For example, the digital signage differences between a Mom and Pop store and a large multinational corporation will vary hugely. With the budgets for the mom and pop store will by tiny when compared to the budget of the multinational corporation.
But the solution for either business very too, for example a digital poster will be a more cost effective solution for the mom and pop store that has a built in media player and is updated manually. This way it can advertise promotions on various product lines and can even advertise to passing customers when the store is closed, by placing the digital poster in the window of the store front, recommending any potential customers to order from their website and then to collect the product the following afternoon in store. And the price for this digital signage solution is approximately $1000 depending upon the size of screen.
Now the large multinational corporation can afford to deploy networked enabled digital signs throughout its locations, the city's and countries throughout the world. The content is controlled from one central location and this gives the cooperation control of the brand identity, then when any content needs updating they can be synchronised throughout the digital signs within the corporation in all the cities and countries they are located in. This network enabled digital signs depending on screen size and the size of the hard drive in the network media player these units are in the region of $3000.
Different types of digital signage solutions
There are a multitude of different types of digital signage solutions, from the digital poster with it's a Stand-Alone USB media player to a floor standing, interactive network enabled digital sign. There are two options within the hardware so the screen can either be interactive or non-touch, it also depend if the sign has got a networked enabled media player or if they update content manually. These signs can be wall mounted or floor standing, they can screens on both sides of the sign and they can even read our gestures!
There is another digital signage solution - the video wall. This is when a multitude of screens are used to create a large image on a wall. Each display that makes up the video wall is rather different than the commercial grade screens used for digital signage, video wall displays are very thin bezel walls around the screen and this delivers an uninterrupted large image across the wall.
Using outdoor LCD enclosures?
Now it is all well and good spending thousands of dollars on digital signage hardware, finding out the following day that some of the hardware has either been damaged or stolen is something that will not be calculated in the project. Now using outdoor LCD enclosures, these prevent damage to the hardware from the weather or theft.
The unique construction of outdoor LCD enclosures, if one that has been developed over three years ensuring that the product is the most secure in the most vulnerable areas. An outdoor LCD housing protects all the hardware at one location, from the screen, media player and cables everything is in a controlled and secure environment.
