GDS Standard and Sunlight Readable Displays for Public Information and Advertising , On-board Entertainment and Safety

For over 30 years, GDS has provided customised display products, solutions and services to a wide range of clients across diverse markets. We are proud to have pioneered solutions and technologies such as outdoor information displays, outdoor LCDs, high-brightness displays, sunlight-readable displays, piezo inverters, large-screen optical-bonding displays, and thermal-management systems for outdoor applications.

Today we continue at the forefront of the displays industry, continuously improving and investing in new solutions and applications such as high-brightness LED-backlighting to maintain our best-in-class position.

Custom displays for trains, aircraft, buses and metro vehicles

According to transportation sector needs, we can produce a wide range of products for trains, aircraft, buses and metro-vehicle applications. All our display solutions are personalised to your requirements and specifications and we will work as a partner throughout the design and manufacturing process.

Sunlight-readable outdoor information displays

Our outdoor information display solutions incorporate cutting-edge technologies that deliver crisp, clear, sunlight-readable images. Built to last, our outdoor information displays feature a thermal-management system that allows them to operate even in direct sunlight.

They are available in anti-vandal, NEMA4/IP65 weather-proof casings, ensuring they will operate all day, in sun, snow, rain or humid conditions.

Large-screen, indoor LCD displays

GDS’ large-screen LCD displays are available in a wide range of sizes to suit most indoor spaces.

Standard features include 24/7 operation and anti-vandal enhancements, ideal for public areas, with uptime critical for the display of public information or advertising.

GDS displays facilitate fast and easy maintenance, and support full network connectivity including remote monitoring and diagnostics.

Advertising and outdoor information displays

Our outdoor information displays can provide digital advertising space with brilliant images, adding a potential revenue opportunity as well as providing critical information.

Displays for rail stations, shops, waiting rooms and airports

GDS displays are designed to be aesthetically pleasing from all angles including the back (no cabling is visible). This makes our displays ideal for shops, waiting rooms, airports and railway stations.

On-board displays for cockpits, dashboards and passenger cabins

We develop displays for on-board use in cockpits, dashboards and passenger cabins. Our solutions can be designed to clients’ specifications and to be compliant with the needs of the marine, avionics, automotive and railway markets.

Bus, plane, train and metro-vehicle LCD on-board displays

We can also develop advanced LCD on-board display solutions which can be installed at a prominent place inside a bus, plane, train or metro vehicle. They are ideal not only for informing passengers of the next scheduled stop but also for delivering advertising messages, tourist information or entertainment programmes while people travel.

Ruggedised, anti-reflective and sunlight-readable displays

GDS has a long history of creating displays that meet specific legal requirements. Innovations in the areas of anti-reflective, sunlight-readable displays ensure a high-quality end product that meets or exceeds specifications. Our display solutions are ruggedised to meet the demands of a wide range of environmental working conditions.

Ruggedised, anti-vandal, sunlight-readable self-service kiosks

The self-service market is growing very quickly in the transportation sector, led by airline check-in, baggage and ticketing units, as well as hotel check-in devices.

Our integrated self-service solution for public transportation companies is a modern marketing tool and offers the possibility to combine multimedia information with paper or electronic ticketing and other specific services such as kiosks to change reservation details and for airport self-check-in. We also specialise in outdoor applications and can offer ruggedised, anti-vandal, sunlight-readable kiosk solutions.

Our kiosk solutions feature:

  • Connection information, schedules and fares
  • Dynamic departure displays
  • Electronic ticketing or paper tickets
  • Audio/video support and consultation
  • Tourist and city information
  • Billed services (internet, email and SMS)
  • Automatic check-in (for airports, buses, subways and trains)
  • Electronic billboards for advertising
  • Reservation information
  • Car rental self-service kiosks
