Text visibility / accessability on public information screens

I'm in the process with our supplier of upgrading the technology behind our Flight Information Display System for our airport, this runs the flight information screens in the terminal showing the departures / arrivals information. With that comes the opportunity to give the information screens a bit of a facelift, currently it looks a bit like this.

I'm looking for some ideas / best practices on updating the colours and fonts for the information screens to make it A. look good and B. easily readable from a distance.

Most other airports that I've been to recently tend to have a black background with a combination of white / yellow text like this, ideally I don't want to go for a carbon copy of that but is it one of the best font / colour combinations for readability etc?
