Visually Reimagining Travel

As the travel sector continues to expand, transportation hubs are fast evolving to keep pace with the digital world and meet the growing expectations of today’s passengers. At the center of this trend are major facility and technology renovations that aim to add value to transportation facilities and improve the passenger experience.

Keeping Passengers Informed

The priority of rushed travelers is to find the information they need as soon as possible—whether it’s a departure time, an update on a delay or the right track or gate. Leading-edge display solutions offer visual performance, wide viewing angles, the reliability for around-the-clock operation and can be updated in real-time to communicate any important changes. Display technologies that are compatible with emergency broadcast systems can be set up to relay urgent messages or information in specific areas or throughout a venue.

A large, overcrowded transportation hub can be overwhelming to anxious travelers. Digital wayfinding helps passengers navigate busy terminals and unfamiliar layouts by guiding them to where they need to be. Vivid, ultra-high-resolution displays are easily noticed and provide crisp and vibrant directional signage—reducing passenger stress and the bottlenecks that create confusion in high-traffic areas.

Digital Signage for
a Captive Audience

Transportation hubs offer a golden opportunity to reach large captive audiences and drive revenue. Striking display technologies provide more impact than static signage and can capture people’s attention in active environments—informing waiting passengers about anything from retail and restaurant options in the terminal to events and attractions in the local city.

A key strategy of the modern transport hub is to minimize the anxiety of travel by fostering comfort and safety among passengers, turning extended periods of downtime into positive and enjoyable experiences.

Advertising & Digital Signage

Eye-catching display technologies offer a compelling medium for advertising and digital signage across transport venues by attracting the attention of passerby and engaging captive audiences, allowing facilities to maximize ad space opportunities at key locations.

Digital displays deployed as flight information displays (FIDs), gate information displays (GIDs) and baggage information displays (BIDs) serve a critical role in busy terminals by providing passengers with the most up-to-date information in the places where they urgently need it. Durable, commercial-grade FIDs, GIDs and BIDs displays featuring high brightness, wide viewing angles and 24x7 reliability deliver lasting, mission-critical performance for demanding public terminal environments.
