Our outdoor screens and indoor solutions are evident in everyday life – from information displays on your daily bus or rail commute or drive thru menu boards to fuel pump price displays to advertising displays at the shopping centres, GDS provides customised display signs, solutions and services to a wide range of clients across diverse markets.

Choosing the right technology is paramount to the success of any project. With so many options available, it can be overwhelming. However, it’s important to take the time to evaluate all of your options before making a decision. You need to consider factors such as security, cost, reliability, functionality, quality and ease of use. By taking the time to choose the right technology, you can ensure that your project will meet or exceed expectations.

Public information displays must offer reliable operation in all environmental conditions: they must be bright, rugged and offer long-term operation with very little down time. Our innovative designs meet these exacting demands.

Today GDS with over 40 years of experience and over 700,000+ displays operational in outdoor and harsh environments.
