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