I totally understand some businesses or retail stores don’t have the budget to buy a Commercial Screen since they are more expensive than residential screens but if you’re tossing up choosing between a Commercial and Residential screen, do yourself a favour and just get a Commercial Screen. You’ll thank me later. You can read about the Commercial vs Retail (residential) screens in this article Commercial vs Retail. Here’s a photo of a restaurant using a residential screen.

FAIL FEATURES

  • Content is not displaying
  • Menu is not displaying at the correct orientation
  • Power cord is visible
  • Bracket is maybe too wide

SUGGESTIONS/RECOMMENDATIONS

  • Use a digital signage software solution provided by a digital signage company. This also maybe includes getting a digital signage player that automatically starts and display the content. With the correct digital signage player you can then remotely manage the content for the screen.
  • Purchase a commercial grade screen with a built in player that allows content to be played automatically
  • Install power at the back of the screen. It looks very unprofessional having the power running on a power board
  • Purchase a portrait mounting bracket. It appears that maybe the one that was used in the picture is for landscape
