Airports are constantly challenged to offer an efficient proposition to its passengers, discouraging confusion or anxiety during the travelling experience, whilst remaining profitable and attractive. NEC’s display innovation helps ensure the airport is one step ahead of the travellers’ needs.Richard Wilks, Aviation Business Development Manager EMEA at NEC Display Solutions
NEC’s Airport Display Solutions
The airport environment is a hostile one for a display, operating extensive for periods with much static information. Displays are deployed either open to the terminal environment or typically housed in a protective casing.
Although much less popular today a lot of older airports are still using traditional analogue split-flap boards for their main way of displaying flight information in departure and arrival halls.
With the trend for larger and brighter terminal buildings to accommodate more non-operational businesses and provide a more comfortable and modern environment, comes the challenge of getting clear and dynamic messaging.
Airports have widely been identified as prime sites for the deployment of digital signage, as passengers often have long periods of dwell time and in general a proportion of passengers fit in the profile of CIP or VIP.
NEC is regarded as one of the leading experts in control room solutions for the broadcast, government, telecoms and utilities application.
With long waiting times in departure lounges and gates, airports need to provide a range of entertainment opportunities to waiting passengers, especially those with children.
