Outdoor Digital Signage Using a Steel LCD Enclosure

Outdoor digital signage does not have to be in an obvious outside location, this is why an outdoor Lcd enclosure is sometimes overlooked.
When individuals see they words outside digital signage, the prompt thought that comes to the other persons mind is outdoors in a shopping mall, airport or train station, but sometimes people mean other places rather than in the home, one instance is in a cave.
Sounds mad but one successful company has deployed outdoor digital signage in a cave in Spain, this is used by schools on educational visits and the dynamic advertising is interactive in some parts, depicting stick men and dinosaurs. But the real problem was that standard hardware could not deal with the harsh conditions in the cave, the constant damp atmosphere, this hindered the project for some time.
Then they learned that by putting the outdoor digital signage into monitor enclosures everything would be safe and secure.
What makes a steel lcd enclosure the perfect solution is that it is made from metal and the unit will accommodate a media player or small computer and the LCD or plasma screen. The inner temperature of the TV enclosure is maintained through a set of cooling and heating units that are thermostatically managed, providing the gadgets inside the steel case with the defense necessary from the harsh environment as well as any potential vandalism.
Just one thing to consider if you are thinking of fitting an outdoor digital signage system in a cave, is that due to the low light levels, you can actually use conventional LCD and plasma televisions without any loss of quality. This is another good reason why an out of doors dynamic signage solution should be deployed in caves that are used for education and visitor centres.
The electronic signage solution can display educational data then mixed with adverts for the souvenir shop or the bistro, it can also be used to communicate information to a school party should someone go missing.
