The Academy of Trinity, Radstock, Somerset

Electronic Noticeboard Installation At Academy of Trinity

Aqualite Outdoor TV screens can be used for electronic noticeboards or as part of a digital signage system to manage queues or direct students and visitors in busy reception areas of schools, colleges and universities.

Trinity is a primary school based in Radstock, Somerset. It has an inclusive policy, upholding a Christian ethos and welcoming children of all faiths and denominations and those with none, equally.

The Academy of Trinity is an award winning school, achieving ‘Outstanding’ Ofsted status and it’s headteacher, Mrs Hart,  won The Pride of Britain Awards Headteacher of the Year Award in 2008.

The Academy of Trinity wanted a strong way of communicating to both students and their parents, the weekly events, achievements and photos of the school.

Trinity wanted to communicate these messages in key areas of the school including the main reception area and an outdoor area where parents would pick up their children from.

Trinity specified that they did not want to have to update each screen individually and needed a system that would be quick, easy and cost-efficient to update.

Eclipse Digital implemented a digital signage network that included one publisher box and two subscribers. One subscriber supplies content to a 42″ interior screen mounted in the main reception area of the school, while the other subscriber unit supplies content to be displayed on a weather proof, exterior 55″ Aqualite screen in the parents waiting area outside the school.

All content on the digital signage layout is customisable by the school and updated each week with the up coming events, photos from previous school events and important messages from the school.

All work for this project was designed, developed and installed by Eclipse Digital Media.

Martin King, the Head of IT at Chester Zoo explains how the new all-weather Aqualite TV display screens have been deployed to manage the queues at Chester Zoo.

“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”.

Outdoors TV Advertising Display Screens

Outdoors digital TV displays has become as important part of the advertising mix. Advances in the design and production of flat screen LCD and LED TV display screens are presenting small and medium sized business owners, marketeers and advertisers with outdoor advertising opportunities previously only available to larger companies or multinational corporations.

Kim Menem, CEO of Aqualite Outdoor takes up the story..

“Who thought the time would come when delicate LCD TVs could be left working outside in conditions ranging from freezing cold,  torrential rain to blisteringly hot summer heat, without fear of damage from the elements?”

“Well that time is here. Outdoor advertisers can now promote their brand, products or services to potential customers as they go about their 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.”

Why not advertise your company at an outdoor event, or broadcast marketing material throughout shopping malls, car parks, train stations? In addition, using Aqualite Outdoor displays for public information purposes can also increase efficiency and awareness.
