When it comes to using digital screens for your business there are major differences between commercial-grade digital displays and residential televisions. The Howard Company only offers commercial-grade screens for digital menu boards for restaurants due to their many advantages. Here are a few things to consider when looking at commercial-grade digital screens:

  • Durability: Commercial-grade displays are made for continuous use, allowing them to last longer than residential televisions. Hotels and Airports are two industries that are big advocates for commercial-grade screens as they are displaying information 24/7.
  • Warranty: Generally speaking, purchasing screens at big box stores will not include a warranty if it ends up being displayed in a high-use business setting.
  • Privacy: Commercial-grade monitors often are not equipped with television tuners, which provides protection from tampering.
