What, Why, Which, How & Where Of Outdoor TVs
Below are some of our most frequently asked questions about our outdoor televisions, advertising billboards and digital signage screens.
What is the difference between an Outdoor TV and an ordinary flat screen TV in a weatherproof enclosure?
The Outdoor Screen Company range of TV screens are resistant to tropical rain, humidity, desert sun, sand, heat and even freezing and frosty Arctic weather conditions. The television interior is thermostatically controlled and the TV screen glass has an anti glare and anti reflective screen coating that ensures the brightest, high visibility, eye catching media displays both inside and outside.
Is an outdoor TV worth the money?
Outdoor TV installation costs can be reduced by simply putting a normal indoor flat screen TV in a ‘weatherproof enclosure’ but picture quality will be severely compromised by glare from the two reflective surfaces of the TV screen and the glass enclosure.
Is it safe to use a regular indoor TV outside?
With an indoor television in an enclosure installation, there is the danger of the TV interior overheating. This could result in damage to the television components. As the TV cools down after use there is also the threat of condensation forming as the delicate electronic components which could lead to electrical safety problems. Unsafe and untidy cabling, as well as the bulk associated with placing an ordinary TV in an external casing can also cause problems.
How to reduce glare and reflection from outdoor TV screens?
The Outdoor Screen Company range of TV screens reduce glare and reflection by the addition of anti glare film coating applied to the TV screen. This ensure high visibility and high quality picture definition under strong artificial indoor lighting or outside in broad daylight and bright sunny conditions. Our LED backlight, high brightness TVs offer more than double the brightness capability of your average household television.
Which TV is best for outdoor use?
The Outdoor Screen Company range of outdoor televisions are quite different to an ordinary domestic TV screen housed in a separate protective cover, enclosure or casing.
