BBC Choose Aqualite TV Monitors for Mobile & Outside Broadcasts

Outdoor TV Monitors For Studios & Outside Broadcast Units

Aqualite weatherproof TV displays help the BBC deliver live and pre-recorded outside broadcasts for TV news, sports, entertainment and live events.

BBC_LogoAqualite Outdoor have established an excellent reputation within the outside broadcasting market through successfully integrating the IP66 range of outdoor, all weather TV digital displays in the latest mobile television studios and outside broadcast units. Aqualite staff have extensive knowledge and experience of the engineering and project management of outside broadcast systems.

“The aim of our business is to supply a very high quality product and service for the outside broadcast market. We have successfully achieved this by offering the right products and keeping very close relationships with our clients and Aqualite is fast becoming the market leader for the supply, rental and sale of fully weatherproofed TV monitors for the outside television broadcast industry.” said Kim Menen of Aqualite Outdoor.

“We have built strong alliances with TV production partners and broadcasting equipment distributors who have a vast degree of broadcast experience to help deliver the best outside broadcasting TV monitors and have a proven track record within the industry. As the foremost supplier of IP66 HD TV monitors, Aqualite are well-placed to support the growing demands of outside broadcasters across the world” he added.

As an example, the BBC have seen the potential of using Aqualite TV monitors and screens as part of their outside broadcast set up.

“We use the Aqualite 32” LED TV on our sporting outside broadcasts as an outdoor presentation monitor, usually pitchside mounted on a Unicol Stand. Obviously the waterproof factor is of great importance to us, as Broadcasting must go on no matter what the elements.” said Dermot Scott, the Vision Supervisor in the Technology and Operations department at BBC Northern Ireland.

“Also the High Brightness daylight readable aspect is of great importance, especially when our journalists, presenters and pundits are viewing live pictures and using these to steer their conversation. We have used Aqualite at several of our local sports grounds and also at Murrayfield, when we were doing presentation for S4C. We’ve had the Aqualite display for around three and a half years and it’s very much commented on by other Broadcasters!” He added.

Aqualite Outdoor is situated in the UK, with operating offices in Germany, Poland, Holland, Belgium, France and Denmark.

Daily Mail Awards Aqualite Outdoor TV “Best of the Bunch!”

Best Outdoor TV Display Screens For Homes & Gardens

Daily Mail’s Film Critic, Brian Viner tests the new breed of outdoor TVs and asks the question…….”Is it time you got a TV in your garden?” Saturday 16th July 2016 – Daily Mail (Newspaper and Mail Online)

“Manufacturers have cottoned on to increasing demand with a new range of high-definition smart TVs, boasting all the functions of a good indoors set — and the ability to withstand everything from blazing sun to lashing rain and even snow.”

“As this paper’s film critic I spend an awful lot of time watching screens in darkened rooms; it seemed like a treat to do it from the comfort of a deckchair, glass of beer in hand.”

So I decided to give some of the latest models a try. They all require mains power so, depending on how close your nearest socket is to your back door, you’ll probably need an extension cord.

Mind you, I now have my wife to contend with, rather than my mother. ‘Why on earth would you want to be watching television at all on a lovely summer’s day?’ she asked. This time around, I had a ready answer. ‘Because the sun is out — and the cricket is on!’

My mother’s familiar rebuke still echoes, more than 40 years after she first issued it: ‘Why do you want to be cooped up indoors watching television on a lovely summer’s day?’

It was a fair point, and — finally — I have the perfect riposte: ‘OK, I’ll go and watch telly in the garden!’

Across Britain, outdoor televisions are proliferating. The trend started in pubs after 2007, when the smoking ban came in. Landlords realised they had to make a virtue of forcing their customers outside, and duly began putting up weatherproof TVs to show sporting events.

TEST: With a handsome black surround, this gained even the grudging approval of my hard-to-please family. The IP66 protection means it will cope with temperatures up to 68c, and as low as 20 degrees below zero, which just about covers all four seasons at my home in Herefordshire.

There is also the capacity to build a PC into the model, turning it into a kind of giant home computer that you control with a touchscreen — although that’s intended more for interactive use at visitor attractions than for your garden.

The sound came through two small attachable ten-watt speakers, and the picture quality was decent, although as with all the models boasting high-gloss screens, I had to fiddle with the positioning of my deckchair before I could completely get rid of the sun’s reflective glare.

“On the whole, though, I was impressed with the Aqualite. The company proudly claims that its TVs work well in factories, mines, quarries, airports and ships, as well as on gas and oil rigs in Arctic, desert or even tropical locations.”

Now it can add, that it can also handle the rigours of a Herefordshire patio!

VERDICT: The best of the bunch of regular outdoor TVs — if you’ve got the cash.

“Meanwhile, in our own private gardens, Brits have started to embrace outdoor living like never before, installing hot tubs and fancy barbecues once considered suspiciously ‘New World’. Is it any wonder that our nation of sun-worshippers is now switching on to the idea of alfresco viewing at home?
