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.

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.
