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.

 

All Weather TV Screens For World Cup Football Parties

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.

I 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.

I 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!

Kim 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 Film for Daylight Readable Signage

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.

World Cup Football – Outdoor TV Screens For Pubs With Beer Gardens

With the 2014 World Cup in Brazil this summer, brighter times are on the way for pubs, bars and hotels with beer gardens in the UK. The scale of the business opportunity for regional and local breweries, pub chains and pub companies over the summer of 2014 shouldn’t be underestimated.

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. “”
