London Heathrow Airport

Heathrow Airport – TV Display Screens Improve Cargo Handling

Heathrow Airport Choose Aqualite Outdoor Screens

Aqualite Outdoor displays, signage screens, billboards and TV monitors have become the established way to broadcast fast changing courier and freight forwarding information in the cargo handling and distribution areas of transport hubs such as airports and sea ports.

Chris Fahey who is Head of IT at Courier Facilities at London’s Heathrow Airport takes up the story.

We found Aqualite after looking for a modern solution to provide our ground staff with information during the day- we were previously using a whiteboard and decided it was time to upgrade to something more high tech.

Ultimately, the decision to go with an Aqualite outdoor screen came down to the fact that their screens are specifically manufactured to situations like ours. We needed a weatherproof outdoor display that was fit for our purpose & that wouldn’t break the bank.

We currently use our screen airside at our Heathrow airport cargo facility to provide real time updates and information on delivery bay allocation and shipments to our ground staff.

We’ve noticed a measurable increase in our coordination and efficiency as an organization since installing the screen.

Having the ability to remotely update the information we broadcast to employees in real time is a world apart from our old system and I don’t think we can ever go back!

We were initially worried that finding an outdoor screen capable of withstanding the extreme weather conditions like the high speed winds and hail storms we occasionally experience at Heathrow would be impossible. But after 5 years, our Aqualite is still going strong without a single issue whatsoever. I think going with a dedicated manufacturer like Aqualite rather than trying to use an outdoor case with a TV inside it has made a difference as this screen is very solid and has done a reliable job every day.

Overall my experience with Aqualite has been excellent since the beginning, the team made an obvious effort to make sure they understood my needs and that I would receive the right piece of technology for my situation. The screen was affordable, arrived on time, and has surprised me with its durability. I’d most definitely recommend Aqualite to anyone in need of an outdoor screen.’

PIDS Display Screens For Train, Metro & Bus Stations

Arriva Trains - London OvergroundLCD 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.

PIDS Display Screens For 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 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’

Passenger Info Display Screens For Railway StationsKim 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.’

Ford – Big Drive Thru & Road Side Advertising Billboards & Screens

Large Road Side TV Advertising Displays & Billboards

Aqualite Outdoor are delighted to announce the installation of what we hope will be a number of outdoor LED advertising billboards for a road side, car park display at Haynes Bros Ltd, Ford Car Sales Dealers in Maidenhead.

We were originally contacted by the IT department at the car dealership to enquire about our range of IP 66 rated outdoor weatherproof LCD and LED TV advertising screens and we discussed the various issues and challenges which related to the road side site, to determine the best product and specification screen to supply.

Robin Menen of Aqualite takes up the story. ‘ The Aqualite Outdoor range of big TV screens and LED billboards are suitable for all road side locations such as petrol stations, car sales lots, transport cafes, diners, retail parks, distribution centres and commercial, business and industrial estates.

The screens are designed to work in all weathers from freezing Arctic conditions to Tropical heat and humidity and offer high visibility even in direct sunlight with anti reflective and anti glare screen coatings that ensure marketing messages are hard to miss and easy to read.’

Haynes Bros Ltd (Ford-Maidenhead) had occupied the site for many years and traditionally utilised a 2m x 2m static “billboard” type vinyl sign used to advertise and promote various car sales offers and display information throughout the year.

This big vinyl advertising sign was located at the entrance to their car showroom and angled towards oncoming traffic and pedestrians for the best visibility and exposure.

Their problem was that every time they wanted to run a promotion or change the advertising messages in any way- they had to design and get their signage company  to reprint a large vinyl replacement advertisement which would  then replace the current sign message being used.

This was not only costly but also took time and effort to do,  not to mention that they found themselves restricted in terms of being able to offer multiple advertising promotions from the single sign.

Aqualite Outdoor discussed the various challenges including orientation, brightness and viewing distances involved and decided, along with Haynes, that a pixel pitch of 3.9mm was the optimum LED module to use housed in the existing frame from the old vinyl sign. The brightness of the new Aqualite outdoor LED billboard needed to be controlled at night, so as not to dazzle drivers.

After planning consents had been obtained, Aqualite Outdoor installed a brand new 2m x 2xm P3.9 LED advertising billboard that could be connected to the Ford car dealership’s internal LAN, allowing for the real time updating and ever changing delivery of car sales adverts, car promotions and high impact Ford marketing messages.

Aqualite Outdoor thanks Haynes Bros Ltd in Maidenhead for the opportunity to demonstrate the effectiveness of their big screen LED advertising billboard range. We look forward to providing further outdoor advertising display screens at other car showrooms and car sales forecourts manged by the Haynes Ford dealership.

It’s all about the tools and how they make the tradesman’s life easier – so it was paramount that staff on the truck were able to do instant demonstrations of all product showing real-life situations. The whole facility has numerous areas for both product demonstration and large audience live presentation.

Smart Factory Display Screens Boost Meat Production 10%

Liffey Meats – Smart Factory Display Screens Boost Meat Production 10%

IP66 Smart Food Factory Floor TV Display Screens

Smart Meat Factory Floor TV Display ScreensLiffey Meats pride themselves on being able to respond quickly and efficiently to their customer”s needs and  are always looking for opportunities to use smart factory technology to increase production on the factory floor.

Liffey Meats are Ireland’s most modern and progressive beef processors and are situated in Co. Cavan, from 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 LED TV display 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”

Food & Meat Factory Display Screens

“Having the screen works very well for us and has actually increased factory 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 factory 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 IP66 rated 100% waterproof screen 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 digital signage screen in the county! “

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

Smart Food & Meat Factory TV ScreensGarth 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”

Outdoor TV Screens For Patios

Large Outdoor LED TV Display Screens For Homes, Patios & Gardens

LED TVs For Home, Garden, Patio & Outside Areas

Stoke City Fans, Luka and Steve Bentley, never miss a game at the BET365 Stadium and with an Aqualite Outdoor TV screen installed in their garden, they and their friends are looking forward to watching the 2018 World Cup Finals this summer, come rain or shine. 

Steve Bentley takes up the story. ”I guess my initial motivation for considering an outdoor TV was quite unusual. My son Luka, who is now 10, has cerebral palsy. His main pleasure in life is watching TV, especially football.

During the summer months, we found ourselves staying inside with Luka, rather than enjoying the garden, and this led me to investigate the possibility of taking a TV outside.

Of course, the main issues with trying to watch a regular TV outside soon became apparent.   The shiny screen and limited brightness meant that it was often difficult to see the picture.

Outdoor TV Screens For Patio & Pool AreasI looked at a number of specialist options, including  weather proof casings for standard TV’s, and a number of purpose built outdoor screens.  Aqualite were the only company with established credibility in this space, who’s products gave me the level of confidence which I was looking for.

The product more than lived up to the hype. It’s always a great talking point, and its perfect for BBQ’s during the football season. Our friends never fail to be impressed; both with the clarity of the picture in daylight, and the fact that the unit permanently resides outside.

I have made use of complimentary technology with my outdoor TV installation, which includes a wireless HDMI transmitter and receiver, and a wireless solar-powered speaker.  It’s a great combination, which allows me to stream content from a Sky or Virgin box, and output the audio to the area where guests are sitting.

Outdoor TV Screens For Patio & Back GardenI have to admit that I was a little sceptical regarding the units durability, especially during the first winter, which was a harsh one, with considerable amounts of snow.

Also, living in the North West, rain is never far away. I needn’t have worried.  Come the spring time, I switched on the Aqualite TV and it functioned perfectly. That was four years ago, and it has survived every winter since.

I consider the Aqualite TV to be one the best purchases I have ever made, and of course Luka loves it too.  I’m now looking forward to the World Cup 2018, where the Aqualite screen will no doubt provide the backdrop to plenty of outdoor entertainment, and hopefully some success on the pitch!

IP66 Big Outdoor TV LED Display ScreensKim Menen the managing director of Aqualite Outdoor added, ‘Football is a sport that could have been invented specifically for television and everyone knows that watching the big game is always more fun with your friends.

It’s great to hear how much joy our customers get from the Aquaite range of all weather TV screens and we are thrilled with Luca and Steve’s feedback.

Our screens allow all of the great sporting events to be shared and enjoyed and have even been known to make Port Vale look like a good team.”

Anti Glare & Anti Reflective TV Screen Coatings & Films

Anti Glare & Anti Reflective TV Display Screens

Aqualite Outdoor TV screens have anti glare film to create an anti reflective, clear and protective coating that reduces sun and snow glare and reflection for higher visibility outside in daylight

At the recent Midwich ‘Technology Exposed’ Showcase held at Ascot Race Course with over 80 AV manufacturers in attendance, Aqualite Outdoor decided that this would be an opportune time to show off their new anti reflective film and anti glare coating for outdoor LCD and LED TV advertising & digital signage screens, panels, monitors & displays

Aqualite Outdoor are manufacturers and trade distributors of specialist IP66 rated weatherproof outdoor TV screens. Kim Menen Director of Aqualite said ‘Whilst the Aqualite range of outdoor TV screens has 4 reflective coatings on both sides of the toughened glass, there will always be an element of glare in extremely high ambient light conditions. Outdoor environments can sometimes be especially bright and therefore cause unwanted reflection.’

Specially developed for Aqualite Outdoor the AQAR Film (Aqualite Anti-Reflective film) is easy to apply, 0.006mm thin and reduces glare by an incredible 65%. As well as having screen protection properties leaving no residue if removed.

Bryan Denyar Editor and Owner of the Trade publication AV News who watched a demonstration of the anti glare coating at the show commented that the film would be a great advantage to Education in high bright environments where glare is an issue.

The anti-glare film can be supplied to the exact size required.

Chigwell School – Big TV Screen Displays For Schools & Colleges

LED TV Display Screens For Schools, Colleges & Universities

Chigwell School In EssexChigwell School in Essex installs Aqualite LED digital signage screens to manage queues in the school catering hall.

Founded in 1629 and situated on a 100-acre site in the heart of West Essex, Chigwell School is home to over 800 boys and girls from 4-18 years of age. It boasts top-class facilities across all departments from Art to Sciences and everything in between.

Food and beverage catering for such a large and diverse group of pupils no doubt has its challenges which is where the Aqualite screen comes in.

Positioned outside the school catering hall it helps to reduce queuing times by allowing the pupils to decide what they’d like for lunch whilst waiting in line.

The Standard Brightness 42” Aqualite screen is perfectly positioned under a glass roof canopy so it’s exposed to the elements but on this occasion is protected by rain and snow.

IT Technician Nathalie White has worked at Chigwell School for just over three years and apart from the screen requiring a replacement remote control, has had nothing but positive comments on the screen and its performance.

Kim Menen of Aqualite commented, “Here at Aqualite we are both proud and pleased to have supplied an outdoor screen for the school back in 2010 – which is still going strong and earning its keep.”

“Outside in all weathers, it’s a perfect application for our screen within a large educational environment, I think the pupils here are very fortunate to have this small, but helpful digital menu-board facility which helps to make their day just that little bit easier!”
