All About Waterproof TVs
Since flat-screen TVs first emerged more than a decade ago, their use has become ubiquitous by replacing the cathode ray tubes (CRTs) that were used for years to provide television entertainment.
Now, modern LCD (liquid crystal display) and plasma screens are found in almost every room, but their use does not stop there. These flat screens are commonly found outside the home and are used for advertising and information, even outdoors.
Outdoor digital advertising is growing out of outdoor advertising, while information screens are also being displayed outdoors, particularly in the transportation industry, which use them at bus stations and other locations to provide information about schedules.
However, the use of outdoor screens is not an easy task, with the need to protect the climate screens and the extreme temperature of an outdoor environment.
The outdoor screens are being produced by several LCD manufacturers. These devices are designed as waterproof TVs for outdoor use and are commonly used as outdoor digital signage and outdoor information displays.
Water resistant TVs come with a price that is prohibitive for many smaller companies and businesses and also have other disadvantages:
While waterproof televisions are built with national and international guidelines such as IP65 and NEMA 4, and this ensures that they keep climate elements like rain at bay; however, there are other challenges to using outdoor locations that outdoor LCD screens are not as good to overcome.
While an outdoor TV has a wider temperature range than a commercial display or usual consumer grade, it can often have difficulties when the ambient temperature is very extreme. Extremely hot areas and sub-zero temperatures can be too much for these outdoor devices and can cause them to fail.
In addition, as many outdoor screens are left in unmanned locations, outdoor screens are quite vulnerable and poorly equipped to deal with serious impacts, such as those caused by vandalism. The consequence of this is that the outer screen must be housed in a kind of protective cover. However, many LCD enclosures that offer this physical protection are also weather resistant and contain temperature control components.
As these LCD outdoor enclosures can accommodate standard commercial and consumer displays, keep them protected from the weather, temperature and impact they eliminate with the need for outdoor displays. And because commercial grade displays combined with an LCD housing are much cheaper than outdoor TVs, it’s also a cost-effective alternative.
These waterproof TVs accompany a completely remarkable summary of the highlights, which include:
• Built in DTT
• On the screen sensor switch control
• Prepared HD
• Supplied as a fixed unit, without infiltration of waste between glass and screen
• Heated screen
• Waterproof seal to comply with all controls of the wet room
• Amazing 20 “LCD screen
There is even a totally waterproof remote control to work the television from its flat and informal position. Exquisite!
Waterproof TVs in hotels
Since I initially ended up considering these televisions, I have seen them active in some driving accommodations throughout the United Kingdom. I imagine that we will see more and more in the inns as standard, since the contenders will have no desire to feel abandoned with what they are presenting to their clients.
Having seen the establishment of one of these waterproof miracles, I was amazed at how effectively they fit. A basic design is used to make the recess to adapt to the sponsorship plate, the sound (if applicable) and the ariel links are associated and the television is anchored to the plate with a pair of screws.
