PIDS Display Screens For Train, Metro & Bus Stations
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 passenger info display system (PIDS) for train passengers about other public transport options near their train 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 PIDS 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.’

Across the UK outdoor TV screens are proliferating. The trend for weatherproof outdoor TVs began in pubs after 2007 when the UK smoking ban came in. Pub landlords started putting up ‘UK weatherproof’ TV display screens in the pub car park or beer garden to show live football, rugby, cricket, horse racing and other sporting events.
The Daily Mail’s TV & Film Critic, Brian Viner tests the new breed of outdoor weatherproof TV screens and asks the question, “Is it time you got an outdoor TV screen for your garden?” Daily Mail (Newspaper and Mail Online)
“In our own private gardens, Brits have started to embrace outdoor living like never before. Our nation of sun-worshippers is now switching on to the idea of alfresco TV viewing at home installing hot tubs and fancy barbecues once considered suspiciously ‘New World’. So maybe now it’s time to add a UK weatherproof TV screen in the garden, patio, terrace or any other outside area?
Best Weatherproof Outdoor TV Screens For UK Gardens
“Outdoor TV Manufacturers have cottoned on to increasing demand with a new range of high-definition smart TVs, boasting all the functions of a good indoor TV set. These outdoor TV screens have the ability to resist UK weather conditions from blazing sun to lashing rain and even frost and 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 watch movies and sport on a TV outside in the garden from the comfort of a deckchair, glass of beer in hand.”
So I decided to give some of the latest waterproof outdoor televisions 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 I now have the perfect riposte: ‘OK, I’ll go and watch TV in the garden!’
Daily Mail TV Awards Aqualite ‘Best Outdoor TV In UK’
TEST: With a handsome black surround, this gained even the grudging approval of my hard-to-please family. The internal thermostat ensures the TV unit will cope with temperatures up to 68c, and as low as 20 degrees below zero. Luckilly, that covers all four seasons at my home in Herefordshire, UK.
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 UK transport hubs and tourist attractions than for your garden or patio.
The sound came through two small attachable ten-watt speakers, and the picture quality was decent, due to the anti glare and non reflective 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 Outdoor television. 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: Aqualite Outdoor TVs are the best of the bunch of regular outdoor, weatherproof TVs for sale in the UK— if you’ve got the cash.

Outdoor TV Screens For Advertising & Signage

The Aqualite Outdoor range of large pub TV display screens are perfect for external use in pub beer gardens, patios, outdoors smoking areas, outside terraces and car parks.
AquaLite Outdoor TV screens, panels and monitors deliver crystal clear digital images in all weather conditions and any environment: rain, sleet, snow, ice, high humidity, low humidity, heat, sunlight, dust and even insects.
Ordinary indoor TV screens are not robust enough to withstand the damp, heat and dust and simply placing the screen in some form of weatherproof container or enclosure can hamper the picture quality or restrict viewing angles.
The Aqualite range of outdoor pub TV display screens can withstand the extremes that a European summer can produce be it bad weather or good weather and also gives viewers the very best viewing experience.
Outdoor TV Display Screens For Pub Gardens
Kim Menen explains that, “”A common problem with taking indoor TVs outside into direct sunlight is the affect on viewability and readability. Even indoors, I’m sure most people have experienced the annoyance of sun glare while watching TV at some point on a hot afternoon but the problem is many times worse outdoors. Whilst all the AquaLite Outdoor TV screens are coated 4 times with anti reflective coatings on both sides of the glass, glare can never be totally removed.
So if you wish to remove even more glare for those extra bright sunny days then we have the answer. Removing unwanted glare by a further 65% the AqualIte Anti Reflective Film does the job nicely and can make the difference between viewers enjoying the game or staying at home to watch it there. “”

Aqualite Outdoor TV display screens are P66 rated and are fully waterproof . These TVs let you watch live sports, movies or your favourite TV programes whilst in the shower, or from the comfort and luxury of your bath, pool, hot tub or jaccuzzi.
“The reason I wanted an outdoor TV was because during the first lockdown I had purchased a Hot Tub. It soon became apparent that I needed some more entertainment in the garden so I started looking at different types of Outdoor Televisions.
I liaised with various outdoor TV specialists but decided to go with Aqualite because the quality seemed a lot better such as the resolution and Brightness was 3000Nits(cd/m2) which means it will be fine for watching in all weathers and in direct sunlight.
From start to finish I must say the communication was excellent. There were some delays mainly due to the pandemic and more lockdowns but I was continually updated. I dealt with Kim Menen who always updated and even sent me pictures of parts being shipped from different parts of the world to prove it was on its way. If I ever had a question he would reply very quickly.
Kim also helped me with purchasing a suitable TV stand which fits perfectly in the corner of the gazebo.
Kim also helped me find suitable speakers for the TV which I didn’t realise which would be needed and he then put me in touch with Ashok also at Aqualite and he helped me buy the correct equipment for the speakers such as an Amp and HDMI splitter etc.
This is something I have very little knowledge about but he was really helpful and talked me through it all and I managed to get it all set up and working perfectly. The sound is just great and what is needed for the garden.
To watch TV I connected an Amazon Fire stick to the TV which connects through the HDMI cable at the back of the TV and it works brilliantly. It has great picture too and works in all weathers! I also sometimes just use the Photos app on Amazon to stream all my photos of the past years and play music through the speakers which is great to relax to of an evening.
I would say if you are thinking about purchasing an outdoor TV then go with Aqualite – they are very knowledgeable, helpful and courteous and their products are top notch.
Thanks again for everything

Aqualite Outdoor big screen TV displays can help to attract customers searching for the best places to watch live football as UK pubs and bars reopening after the lockdown. Aqualite Outdoor’s range of high visibility, extra large TV display screens are built for heavy and extended use in indoor and outdoor locations such as pubs, bars, clubs and hotels.
The scale of the business opportunity showing outdoor football over the summer of 2021 shouldn’t be underestimated by pub, bar and restaurant owners.
For UK pub landlords and bar owners who are looking to boost profits by showing live football matches outside 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.
An outdoor screen will provide an additional attraction to customers and turns unproductive outdoor spaces into revenue generators. While the prolonged football season provides the key attraction this summer, there is also tennis, golf, horse racing and other crowd pulling events.
Waterproof TV Screens For Pubs & Bars
When designing an TV display screen for outdoor use there are essentially two problems: (1) bad weather, and (2) good weather. 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.
Outdoor TV Screens For Pubs
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 Sizes & Specifications
With the increasing variety of outdoor applications in mind, AquaLite Outdoor TV range is available in 32”, 42”, 55”, 65”, 75”, 100” & 136 inch screen sizes
Due to the modular nature of LED TV technology we can supply giant outdoor LED billboard screens and video walls in sizes up to 6m x 3m.
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 applications, 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.
