Commercial Displays vs Consumer TVs
Many people assume that there are no differences between the TVs in our homes and the digital displays in business spaces like retail stores and public signage. The fact is, there are many differences in the process to manufacturer a commercial grade display and why these are so important to making the right choice.
So why use commercial grade displays?
Designed for 24/7 use
Most consumer displays run from 1-8 hours per day. On the other hand businesses usually require 12-15 hours of operation per day. Commercial displays are specifically designed for these extended-use applications with premium components that eliminate screen burn and also provide the display with better cooling mechanisms.
Extra inputs to accommodate for more advanced network connections
Not every business is the same. Devices in business are required to be integrated or a seamless transaction or customer experience. Having extra inputs in a commerical display allows the flexibility for majority of business cases and allows for future growth and updates with technology. Built in OPS slots are also available for a true all-in-one standalone deployment.
Enhanced durability to suit business environments
Commercial displays are toughened and treated with high grade anti-glare process to withstand workplace environments. For example commercial displays could be installed where customers could possibly bump while walking past. The components used are of higher quality extending the screens lifespan which will translate to a better ROI for business owners.
Powerful processors for on-board applications such as digital signage
Commercial displays are typically equipped with better on-board OS systems able to handle more demanding applications required for business.
Warranty covers use for commercial applications
Support for commercial displays far exceeds the support for consumer TV’s. This allows businesses to focus on their business while a technician can come on-site and fix the commercial display or replace required parts.
Network configuration on commercial displays usually allows for ,much better 2 way communication. Allowing not only for screens to reveice information from another source, but to send its own information back out. This is especially useful when a number of displays are required on the same network or centralised control.
Longer display lifespan
Although the cost of a commercial grade display is higher than purchasing a consumer TV. In the long run the components in commercial displays are designed to last longer and to withstand the elements of extended running times and many different business environments.
