LCD TV or commercial LCD screen
In the UK, we usually look in high street retailers, when we want a new television. We can buy 40” LCD TV’s for £600 including VAT. Being TV’s, they come with speakers, a desktop stand and built in analogue TV tuner for BBC1, BBC2, ITV, Channel 4 and Channel 5, plus Teletext, or built in digital TV tuner for Freeview.
An “LCD screen” is designed for corporate use, normally called a commercial LCD, and usually does not include a TV tuner. Many LCD screens do not include speakers or any sort of stand in the basic price. When you add speakers and a stand or wall mount bracket, you are looking at paying around 50% more for what looks like an LCD TV.
The reason for paying around 50% more for the commercial LCD screen, is the usage. LCD TV’s are for home use and are designed to be used 4-6 hours per day and usually have a 1 year RTB warranty. LCD screens are designed to be used 12-18 hours per day and usually come with 2 or more years warranty and have a far higher build quality. For example, a London retail chain put home TV’s in their shops to display video advertisements during opening hours. After a few months the TV’s began to fail, as they were not up to the task of being used 10 hours per day.
Another difference is the connectors on the back of the screens. LCD TV’s tend to have scart connectors to make connecting to Sky boxes, DVD players, etc, easier. On LCD screens, higher quality connections such as component video are available.
If you want to run digital signage, such as a display in a shop window, then buy an LCD screen, not an LCD TV.
You may also like to consider plasma screens, rather than LCD, for 42" above digital signage requirements.
