The Kings Arms | Case Study

Hospitality Technology Solutions

The Kings Arms, formerly the Kings Head, is a spacious and relaxed pet friendly local situated near Garstang Arts Centre in Preston. The cheerful staff and attentive service is renowned in the area generating lots of repeat custom; especially when highly anticipated live sports events are taking place.

The Brief

New owners intended to give the premises a revamp to transform it into an attractive pit stop on Garstang High Street, where you can grab a cold beverage and catch all the sporting action. They requested various large-scale TV screens to be fixed at high visibility points to display BT Sport and Sky Sports. The outdoor area was under utilised, so enhancing it into an outdoor viewing area with a high spec Outdoor TV was the main prerequisite set out prior to commencing work.

The Delivery

To meet the customer brief, we supplied and fitted several Samsung Hospitality 4K LED TVs ranging from 55” – 65” on Peerless flat TV brackets throughout the premises. Hospitality TVs are specifically built to function in Hospitality settings in place of Domestic TVs, they have longer run times with the ability to function for 16+ hours per day. They’re also composed of more robust materials than Domestic TVs, making them more likely to withstand impact and damage which is vital for a venue that gets as much footfall as the Kings Arms on match days. Finally, the 4K resolution will bring the football to life, offering crystal clear images and vivid life-like colours on screen, creating an in-stadium experience from the comfort of the pub!

The main aim for the beer garden was to facilitate the streaming of live sport and create an additional revenue stream with outdoor viewing, especially important for The Kings Arms with the upcoming Winter World Cup. To achieve this we opted for a Samsung 75" Terrace TV; Samsung's Terrace TV brings indoor entertainment outdoors, all year-round. The bright QLED 4K HDR Outdoor TV with built-in IP55-rated weather resistant durability provides protection from water, dust, and heat. The Anti-Reflection Screen and ultra-bright picture automatically adjusts its brightness and contrast settings to suit the viewing environment, making it perfect for Outdoor TV viewing during the day or in the evening. Even on the sunniest of days, popular sporting events can now be watched outside due to the Samsung Terrace TVs striking 2000 nits’ brightness.
