Protective Enclosures Co. today announced the official release of The TV Shield PRO Touch and The TV Shield PRO Lite Touch. PEC is a U.S. manufacturer of weatherproof digital signage solutions protecting digital displays and TVs in 9,000-plus locations in more than 17 countries.
Theme parks, stadiums, bars, restaurants, zoos, casinos, museums, schools, correctional facilities, hospitals, airports and retail environments have needed durable high-end digital signage displays in high-traffic or outdoor environments, but there have been limitations such as size, IP rating, aesthetics and installation practicality, the company said. The TV Shield PRO Touch and The TV Shield PRO Lite Touch are intended to address and solve these outdoor advertising challenges, according to PEC.
The TV Shield PRO Touch is a weatherproof, secure and robust touchscreen outdoor LED TV enclosure and digital signage cabinet manufactured in the U.S. The TV Shield PRO Touch (compatible with Windows, Mac and Linux) features large sizes up to 80 inches, offers weather protection equal to IP55 ratings (touch frame is IP65 rated), a sleek picture frame look and PEC's proprietary "Quick Install" system. The enclosure is composed of powder-coated lightweight aluminum, steel and stainless steel hardware. The TV Shield PRO also features PEC's "ExactSeal" proprietary triple sealing system for dirt and water intrusion prevention. The included fully articulating internal full-motion mount is designed to allow for correct placement of the screen as well as easy access to the back of the display and inputs.
The TV Shield PRO Lite Touch is designed to be an affordable protective screen enclosure built using lightweight aluminum for strength and durability. The protective cabinet's base frame bolts to the wall, while the enclosure attaches to the base frame using PEC's proprietary "Maximum Security" screw assembly system for defense against removal from the wall. The TV Shield PRO Lite Touch features .177-inch-thick ultra-clear shatterproof polycarbonate for the front shield and a .25-inch-thick aluminum front frame.
"The TV Shield PRO Lite Touch TV and digital display case will hold up in the roughest and toughest indoor or non-weather exposed outdoor environments including federal correctional institutions," PEC CEO Justin King said in the announcement. "This meticulously engineered enclosure revolutionizes TV protection."
