Liffey Meats Display Screens Boost Factory Production by 5%-10%

Liffey Meats pride themselves on being able to respond quickly and efficiently to their customer”s needs and  are always looking for opportunities to use new technology to increase production in their factories.

Liffey1As one of Ireland’s most modern and progressive beef processors, Liffey meats are situated in the centre of some of Ireland”s finest grasslands where they have built a formidable supplier base from quality assured farms which guarantee complete traceability and excellent beef.

Garth Kivlehan, of Liffey Meats explains… I’d seen that rugged screens were becoming available, I looked at a few different displays and for me, this was by far the best display option.

I made contact with Aqualite and I was sold, a few weeks later we’d ordered a 42” screen, taken delivery and installed it overlooking the production hall which specialises in beef de-boning for hind quarters”

“Having the screen works very well for us and has actually increased production; we’ve looked at the numbers and our production has increased by between 5-10% – just by installing it in our production hall. The entire facility and workforce can now, at any given time, clearly see our performance targets, it’s a great motivator!”

“As you would expect we need to ensure complete cleanliness throughout our facility, nowhere is this more important than in out butchery hall where we have the screen, so the great benefit of the Aqualite is that, along with everything else in the hall we wash it every day with high pressure washers, foamed and sanitized daily. We probably have the cleanest Aqualite screen in the county! “

“The beauty is that as the targets are displayed to everyone in the production hall (including Supervisors).  Before we had the screen, it was just Supervisors that were issued with the daily targets, who then had to communicate to our production line staff”

Digital Signange For Liffey MeatsGarth goes on to explain how it’s used….”Shown in the picture is the room temperature (top left corner). We display the time (in the top-right hand corner) the bottom left is the target number of quarters of beef required, in this case at 622 and the bottom right is the ‘actual’ number of quarters of beef being produced at that time, it shows green if we’re above target and a red light if we’re slipping below our yield target.”

“I’m now looking at the possibility of ordering more Aqualite screens,  I’m sure they’re great for outdoor TV but I do think there is much more of a market for these screens to be served as ‘total information displays’ for production facilities”

Kim Menen of Aqualite Outdoor added “It can sometimes be a challenge for companies to develop effective internal communications, the screen at Liffey Meats is a fantastic application and we”re delighted it”s being put to such productive use. It just shows how using an Aqualite screen in this environment, to monitor productivity, can have a direct effect and ultimately increase profit”

IP66 LCD & LED Screens To Display Arriva Trains Rail Travel Info

LCD and LED digital display screens are the most efficient way to broadcast fast changing travel information and arrival and departure schedules to passengers in the public areas of transport hubs such in airports, ports, train stations, bus and coach depots, ferry terminals, etc.

Sam Russell, Communities and Stakeholder Manager of Arriva Rail in London explains a recent challenge to improve the information  provided to train passengers about other public transport options near their stations.

‘What we were looking for was a solution that would help us to present this information on a safe, robust and easily installed digital display screen, in a suitable location on the station where it was clear and visible.

We decided to install Aqualite’s IP66 digital display screens because the product was an excellent fit for our needs, in terms of protection from the British weather and display quality. Also  the display screens were quickly and conveniently available.

Since the installation we have found that our customers and industry partners value the new information that the screen has been able to provide’

Kim Menen of Aqualite Outdoor added, ‘Our 1p66 rated electronic  screens offer the best display solution for train and underground station digital signage networks.

These high visability screens can withstand  all weathers and can be used to broadcast train timetables and directions at the entrance, in the ticket hall or passageways and on the platforms.

They are also ideal for displaying dynamic advertisements on the escalators and can be used to create magnificent visual effects.’

2018 World Cup Outdoor TV Screening

With the World Cup just around the corner, stories are already circulating about an anticipated supply shortage of weatherproof screens for  pubs, clubs and hotels hoping to attract customers with the lure of big screen World Cup match coverage. The scale of the business opportunity for AV resellers and installers over the summer of 2018 shouldn’t be underestimated.

Electronic Digital Notice Boards

The hospitality sector has been hit by both a combination of poor trading conditions and the bad weather. The summer is the time to claw it back, and an outdoor screen will provide an additional attraction to punters and turns unproductive outdoor spaces into revenue generators.

While the World Cup provides the key attraction, there is also tennis, golf, horse racing and other crowd pulling events.

To pub landlords and bar owners who are looking to boost profits this summer the economics are fairly straightforward

A moderately busy town or city pub can turn- over £2,000 to £3,000 in an hour. By extending the busy period, through providing entertainment, and increasing the capacity of the premises, by making an outdoor space productive, the ROI on an outdoor screen is pretty impressive.

Waterproof and Weather Proof TV Screens For Pubs, Bars & Hotels

When designing an TV display screen for outdoor use there are essentially two problems: (1) bad weather, and (2) good weather.

Hooters Phuket - Aqualite Outdoor TV

Some vendors have tried to get around the problem of bad weather by installing standard commercial screens in a sealed cabinet. While this is fine in an outdoor advertising context it doesn’t provide an ideal solution for outdoor entertainment. The cabinets are bulky and can restrict the viewing angle. In contrast a display designed specifically for outdoor applications looks almost as slim and stylish as its indoor equivalent, and yet offers a similar level of protection to a cabinet. The new AquaLite range is encased in metal. Wiring and controls largely concealed and the LCD panel protected with 6 mm toughened glass.

The AquaLite range is rated at IP66, which is currently the best available for an outdoor LCD screen and indicates total protection against dust and temporary flooding by water. This means that the screen should withstand anything that the British summer will throw at it in terms of bad weather.

But in some respects, good weather can present equally difficult operating conditions for an outdoor LCD display. The important considerations here are glare, ambient light and heat.

All AquaLite screens, whether LED backlit or standard, are fit- ted with anti-reflective glass to filter out the worst of the sun’s light. While this is effective up to a point, the additional brightness achieved with the LED backlighting is the best defence against strong ambient light.

When compared with its direct competitors, the AquaLite is the only offering to offer the combination of 1500 candelas of brightness and Full HD. Where conditions don’t demand full power, the brightness can be adjusted by the user, delivering a high quality image with lower power consumption. While the additional brightness available from the LED backlit model commands a premium over the standard fluorescent AquaLite range, it can make a difference between viewers enjoying the game or sidling off home to watch it there.

Outdoor TV Screen Specifications

With the increasing variety of outdoor applications in mind, AquaLite LED backlit range is available in 26” 32” 42” 55” 65” 70” 82”, 100” & 136” screen sizes

The screens are all Full HD, and as such can be used for movies and promotional videos as well as sports. Text display is very legible, offering the potential to use the displays in transport and other text or numeric data applications.

All of the models in the range feature a built-in analogue and digital tuner for accessing broadcast content.

There is also an SD card slot for digital signage applica- tions, and further models are planned with a slot for a PC card for signage applications. With the toughened glass pro- tective screen extending beyond the LCD panel,

AquaLite can overprint the surround with a corporate livery for a pub chain or a hotel group, for example.
