There are various reasons for wanting to install a screen outdoors. Digital signage, providing information, or even entertaining customers outside a bar or pub so they can smoke and not miss the big game, but whatever the reason, any outdoor screen needs comprehensive protection from the weather, temperature and other outdoor hazards.

Placing a screen outdoors has many benefits and applications. For digital signage users, outdoor audiences are much larger and there is less digital competition in the outdoor market, making the screen more noticeable. For service industries, providing information on a screen, detailing schedules, timetables and even menus for restaurants is so much more effective and efficient that just using static media. While for pubs and clubs where smoking bans force a lot of customers outside, offering outdoor entertainment helps to keep them for longer.

Using an outdoor screen can be challenging, however, as simply using a standard LCD or plasma screen in an outdoor environment is not going to work. Weather, temperature and risk of physical damage mean that any screen used in an outdoor environment requires comprehensive protection.

All manner of outdoor screen applications are suitable for LCD enclosures. LCD enclosures are protective housings that enable the outdoor use of almost any make, model and size of standard LCD (or plasma) screen. Enclosing the device inside, the LCD enclosure provides all the protection these standard devices need to function in an outdoor environment.

LCD enclosures are weatherproof, not just from the rain, although they ensure no rainfall or water splashes can get inside at the enclosed screen, but they also prevent snow, hail and even windblown dust from getting inside. Often this weatherproof meets national and international guidelines such as NEMA 4 (National Electrical Manufacturers Association) or the European equivalent, IP65.

This weatherproofing means that the screens can be left outdoors during inclement weather and are still be able to function. This is essential for outdoor digital signage displays, which often need to work 24-hours a day.

LCD enclosures also provide a controlled temperature environment for the screen. This is important for outdoor screens, as they have to function in the heat of summer and under the icy temperatures of winter. Inside each LCD enclosure are climatic systems such as cooling fans, which carry hot air from the screen, insulation, heaters, activated when temperatures drop, and ventilation systems that allow hot air to pass out of the enclosure, carrying heat away while preventing moisture from getting inside.

Another important aspect to the protection offered by an LCD enclosure is security. Often manufactured from steel, LCD enclosures provide a tough barrier against impact, while features such as shatterproof screens, tamperproof locks and secure mounting brackets prevent attempts of theft or vandalism-essential for screens left unsupervised.

The great advantage to using LCD enclosures for outside screen usage is their versatility. An LCD enclosure accommodates standard screens, whether LCD or plasma, allowing the user to decide the type of device to use. Available in varying sizes, LCD enclosures can accommodate almost any make or model of LCD display, plus they also have space to house media players or computers used for providing content.

Whether it's for outdoor digital signage, an information screen or an outdoor TV, an LCD enclosure provides versatile, comprehensive all-round protection. And because they house standard displays, LCD enclosures are cost-effective too. The price of an LCD enclosure, even combined with the price of the enclosed TV, is still far cheaper than alternative outdoor screens, which quite often do not offer the same level of protection.
