Consumer and commercial televisions are designed differently to cater to different needs of consumers. Consumer TVs are the ones you usually see in homes. Commercial TVs are the ones that big businesses and industries use for a wide range of purposes, besides displaying videos. Commercial TVs are used as signage, and most of them are operated for longer periods of time. They also have higher brightness levels and resolutions to enhance the display and entice potential customers. If you have a business and you are thinking of using a TV, you have two choices: will a consumer TV be enough to cater to your business needs or is it wiser to invest in a pricier commercial TV?
Large enterprises invest in high-grade commercial TVs. This is because the displays are much better defined, the brightness is higher to allow viewers from afar to see what is being shown, the screens can be interchanged from portrait to landscape without having to rotate the TV itself and the warranty’s coverage is more comprehensive. Business use TVs as digital signage, which usually runs for twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. A consumer TV cannot withstand very long hours of operation.
Thinner and Bigger
Commercial TVs are much bigger than consumer ones, and their sides are a lot thinner. If you see a video wall mount in a business establishment, you may notice the stark difference between the two types of TVs. Several industrial TVs can be installed alongside each other to display one whole image or video that is seamlessly displayed on every panel. This is what businesses and industries take advantage of: to be able to display larger than life signs and videos to lure more customers.
Determine the Purpose of Use
If you have a small business and you intend to show only videos of your products or services made by a videographer and you only need to operate it during opening hours, then a consumer TV is suitable for your needs. But if you have a big business and your vision is to put up a huge display of several videos, images and signs that alternate from portrait to landscape orientations and if you intend to put it up on a busy intersection where foot and vehicle traffic is heavy at all times of the day, then a commercial TV is your best choice. Determining the purpose of the television will help you arrive at a sound decision about the type of TV that you need to help you in your business.
The difference in the price is also something to consider, as commercial TVs can cost three times more than a conventional one. If money is not an issue for you, then the former will benefit your enterprise the most.
