Kim Menen The Managing Director of outdoor digital signage manufacturers, AquaLite Outdoor assisted James Hogg Designs in demonstrating a unit at Burnley College for appraisal which after further discussions was given the go-ahead.

Each enclosure was custom manufactured in exterior grade stainless steel with groundworks provided by Burnley College.

Both enclosure’s was supplied with two 65” outdoor digital LED media screens located opposite each other on either side of the road facing in different directions.

Each screen also featured a custom designed and built quick release screen mount for ease of maintenance.

Working closely with the college’s IT department Digitalvue also provided the CMS (Control Management Software) to drive content over two media players located in each enclosure, one hardwired and one Wi-Fi connected. The end result engaged students and visitors with a wealth of information through dynamic content and provided a potent marketing tool for Burnley College to deliver key messages and information concerning the college’s activities.

“It’s been an exciting project using all of my IT team’s skills. The IT development team made the FastTrack software, and we purchased eight Acante kiosks, customising them to run our software.

We then linked them to the Aqualite overhead screens, which we can use to dynamically change the queues.

“Aqualite Outdoor TV screens were recommended to me by PureAV, and after a convincing demonstration we decided it was the right product for us. The main features that separated it from the competition were price, durability and the quality. Providing a full HD picture in an Outdoor, fully IP rated screen with high brightness options ticked every box for our application. We needed the TV displays to look good, display a great picture and have enough brightness to be seen when the sun was out in full view. We are very pleased with the product and I would recommend them to anybody seeking a similar solution”.

“We can now send prepaid visitors, groups etc. to specific queues using the screens which we can dynamically change from a web page. If we know there are lots of large groups coming through we can change some of the screens to create dedicated group entrances depending on the visitor flow on the day”.

“More and more businesses are now taking their marketing strategy and budget outdoor to reach a whole new audience. The Aqualite range of weatherproof outdoor TV displays allows companies to position their marketing messages in pretty much any outdoor location – from large digital billboard displays to smaller screens on kiosks, bus shelters and even on the sides of company vehicles.”
