We’re all very excited at PPL Towers to be supplying freestanding screens on a rental or sale basis in 2019. These units have 49” screens and operate either from WIFI, wired or USB. They couldn’t be more easy to use, ideal for exhibitions, retail, receptions, just about anywhere. They can be touch screen or monitor. Toughened glass and smart metallic finish. They can even come in a smart flight case to keep them safe and sound.

On a whistle stop tour of some of the finest golf courses in Scotland. LED and LCD screen quotes to be done as courses look to complete work during the Winter. Many have added health club facilities so LCD screens for the gym and LED screens for outdoors. A big difference from the weather in Manchester and Liverpool last week! Wish we were in the kite surfing business.

Great to visit Scotland last week and travel past the host of The Open in 2018, Carnoustie Golf Links. Lots of exciting things going on in Scotland for us as we demonstrate some of the latest screen technology available to clubs and restaurants.

Great to attend and learn at Leeds Business Week. Well done to the Yorkshire Mafia for putting on such a useful week with lots of interesting sessions. Of special note was Nigel Cliffe who brought energy and enthusiasm to his session on Growing a pipeline of new business. Great fun and entertainment #LeedsBizWeek

We were delighted to complete seven time temp displays. Golf like all sports needs to make sure that players start at the right time to keep the pace of play up and matches on schedule. The signs for the R&A incorporated 6 x 4” digits, GPS communication with synchronised timing accurate to 10 nanoseconds, photo sensor configured for automatic brightness adjustment & RF remotes with a number of additional functions at hand. The temperature feature was an additional element which was added to give spectators more information.

Delighted to visit the Manchester Chamber of Commerce construction lunch. Great to hear all about the new plans for Manchester and Manchester Airport. Got to make some new friends and enjoyed an excellent lunch at the Lowry Theatre Manchester. Looking forward to providing LED screen installations in Manchester.

Communication of information at sports events is critical, and screens at events are both needed and expected. Each year we have a team of a dozen staff at The Open Golf Championship building the on-course outdoor LED screens for The R&A.

This year we started onsite in May. British weather can be unpredictable, so anyone part of the team will see all four seasons when working outdoors on a golf course.

When we assessed the challenge, we selected LED screens that were purposely meant for outdoor use and capable of being viewed from 50m away. Each screen has its own supporting structure. A total 51 tonnes of steel is used in these structures. There are 394 bolt connections per structure, and 178,432 LED clusters per screen. Oh, and the screens needed to be able to handle winds of up to 90 mph.

We work with The R&A to make sure the locations of the screens are correct. We install the structure, make sure it is level, then install the LED tiles. Finally we connect it to a generator power source and test the screen.

The process of installing LED screens at The Open started in 2014 and has grown every year since. On practise days the screens display the tee times golfers and show which hole they are on. On tournament days the screens tell you who is playing on any given hole, helping to make a visit to The Open more informative and enjoyable.

We were recently engaged to work on a mobile classroom project. Our client was building a trailer type vehicle around 70 venues over the course of a year and wanted to install an LED screen to display information.

Custom LED installs are a passion of ours so our crew went to visit the trailer in the build process and measure up. We provided a state of the art P3.9mm LED screen to Scottish Golf and our installers travelled to the client’s trailer to install the screen (no jokes about the trailer having a ‘hole in one’). Custom installs are all about the detail, so having done our site visit and inspection the installation went smoothly.

You’ll be able to see the LED screen travelling around the highlands and lowlands of Scotland, visiting many golf courses on its way, with the LED displaying Scottish Golf competitions, scores and information.

Having a nice big area to build LED screens means we are able to test them out before they leave the building. We’re really lucky to have this space and make full use of it for testing and for maintenance.

Many of the LED screens we build are to a bespoke size (indoor or outdoor screens) so we have built a frame that has moveable supports so we can move it around to fit any size of screen build, simples!

This week we took delivery of some super sleek LCD screens. Great for point of sale, behind counter or kiosk installations. The content management system is a breeze and makes it really easy to upload .jpegs or .mp4 files.

The LCD monitors are WIFI enabled so content can be updated remotely. Even the smallest of areas can be catered for with the small 22 inch screens to make things look swish.
