There are many different types of digital signage setups and over the years we’ve realised there isn’t a one size fits all approach when installing a digital signage solution. Here are two digital signage setups using in-wall boxes:
With this setup, we installed an in-wall box behind the digital signage screen. The in-wall box houses the power points, data ports and the digital signage player. By using the in-wall box, the screen is mounted flushed against the wall, making the screen actually look like a digital poster. One of the downsides of using the in-wall box behind the digital signage screen is that you need to remove the digital screen in order to access the devices in the in-wall box – depending on the size of the screen this may require 2 people to lift the screen off the bracket.
We have also used an in-wall box with a cover. In this case, the in-wall box was not installed behind the digital screen but on the other side of the wall. The reason we decided to use this setup was to avoid having to remove the large digital signage screen in order to access the devices in the in-wall box. With this setup, the digital signage player is nicely mounted inside an in-wall box that is covered with a faceplate and makes the overall solution look clean and professional. To remove the faceplate, you simply just need to remove 2 screws.
NOTE: A qualified electrician is required to terminate the power points inside the in-wall box.
