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.

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.

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 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.

AquaLite Outdoor TVs are made in  32” 42” 55″” & 65″” screen sizes and are designed with stylish weatherproof casings, waterproof cables casino online and connections, 6mm toughened glass. An anti glare film and reflective coating for high visability outside in broad daylight and bright sunlight. The AquaLite LCD, LED, HD TV screens, panels and monitors deliver crystal clear digital images in all weather conditions and any enviroment: rain, sleet, snow, ice, high humidity, low humidity, heat, sunlight, dust and even insects.

Kim Menen explains that, “”A common problem with taking indoor TVs into direct sunlight is the affect on 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. “”
