Passenger Signage Solutions
In recent years, digital signage is becoming more prevalent in transport industry and is considered as an effective tool to manage passengers flow. Not only crucial information can be delivered to passengers in real-time via digital signage, it also generates substantial revenue for transport operators as well as advertisement agencies.
At airport, train station or bus stop, digital signage improves travel experience by serving a variety of functions including time table display, service status, public announcement, and way-finding. To operators, centralized digital screens would enable them to manage traffics within terminals more effortlessly and guide passengers to their destination dynamically. Moreover, with aid of the cutting-edge technology from graphics and Ultra HD (4K2K), eye-catching displays help to attract audiences' attention and boost sales from the advertisement.
Not limited to indoor uses, digital signage also increases its presence in semi-outdoor, and even outdoor condition. At bus stop, passenger information display systems (PIDS) present not only real-time information such as arrival schedule for passengers, but also serves as public bulletin boards to deliver public announcements and much more.
In mission critical applications such as FIDS and PIDS, system reliability is the key to keep up service consistency and reduce maintenance effort to minimum. Centralized and proactive hardware remote monitoring technology like Intel® Active Management Technology (iAMT) could significantly minimize system downtime and accomplish faster, more effective response to failure call. Furthermore, to avoid interruption in daily operation, there is increasing trend to adopt modulized OPS (Open Pluggable Specification) to facilitate maintenance as well as to enable hassle-free deployment.
NEXCOM also provides solutions for wide-temperature outdoor applications that are capable of operating the pre-sell menu boards under extreme weather conditions. For enhanced customer experience, NEXCOM offers a cutting-edge solution integrated with facial recognition software, allowing the system to offer customer's favorite menu, improve customer satisfaction, and create the interactive dinning experience.
Again, to accommodate to harsh outdoor operating conditions at bus stops, system's capability to operate under high temperature condition must be addressed strongly.
