Will enable Ocean to deliver next generation visual experiences


Bradford, Yorkshire, UK, Date 2020 - Calibre today announced that the company had secured orders from leading UK DooH company Ocean Outdoor for two of Calibre’s AiO (All-in-One) LEDFusion A130 130-inch LED displays.


Ocean Outdoor UK and Ocean Group recently moved into a new flagship facility which will be the companies’ new London headquarters in Soho. Concurrently, the companies’ West End office underwent a major refurbishment – which included the deployment of a number of displays throughout the offices. 


Two of these new displays were Calibre’s AiO LEDFusion A130 screens. One is deployed as the main presentation screen at the centre of Ocean’s new boardroom and the second is used primarily by the sales team and for internal messaging. Both screens are integrated with the internal office AV equipment with the capability to change messaging in real-time reflecting how Ocean Outdoor operates the display of their client’s advertising at all of their sites.


Ultra-slim at <38mm and bezel-free, and with a 170 degree viewing angle, the LEDFusion A130s feature HD resolution, a 1.5mm pixel pitch, 600 nits of brightness and a 5,000:1 contrast ratio for exceptional image quality. Control is via an iOS/Android app. Connectivity includes two HDMI ports; 3G-SDI; two USB ports; audio out; RS232 in/out; and RJ45 for LAN control. The units are also optionally OPS-pluggable.


“Ocean is a technology-led media company at the leading edge of DooH, and as such it’s imperative that we equip ourselves with best of breed solutions,” said John Kilfeather, Operations and Technology Director at Ocean Outdoor. “Our recent move provided us with an obvious opportunity to assess what was available. Calibre’s AiO displays impressed us with not only their size, but also their outstanding image quality, their functionality and flexibility and their ease of deployment. They now enhance our everyday operations.”
