Customised display solutions, coupled with powerful embedded systems, can improve the passenger experience, while at the same time, efficiency can deliver savings for transportation operators. Through first-hand experience working on contracts for some of the world’s leading system integrators in the rail and bus transportation sectors, Display Technology understands the characteristics and challenges involved when incorporating displays into passenger information systems with real time information.

Display Technology in the rail sector

One project for real time information incorporated a Litemax 43” 4309-B model as the base panel. The FHD 43-inch industrial-grade LCD panel has a peak brightness of 1800-2000 cd/m2 , enabling sharp text and vivid colours even in direct sunlight.

Litemax also has a 4309-A model with a 4K resolution (also known as Ultra High-Definition). For ease of installation, a full outdoor kit is provided, including a TFT controller board. This visually stunning 4K display has a peak brightness of 1800 cd/m2 , allowing for easy viewing in direct sunlight.

Display Technology can also offer an Ultra High Bright 3500 nit display at 163 Watts power consumption. This 4301-B display offers 100,000 hours MTBF and Hi-Tni 110 °C for anti-blackening in direct sunlight, offering enhanced durability and performance in the outdoor transportation market.

The value-add element Display Technology can offer also means that there is potential for custom or semi-custom solutions for volume projects.

Display Technology in the bus sector


Display Technology have also supplied embedded technology to work with real time bus data, allowing information to be shown in a matter of seconds or minutes, to ensure passengers are constantly updated with accurate data. This complements high bright displays, offering a minimum of 3000 cd/m2 , and DC to DC converters suitable for passenger information systems.

The high bright displays/monitors can show the preceding/next bus stops, as well as expected time of arrival and information on local transportation interchanges. This information is intended to make passenger travel easier, as well as offer them additional alternatives. The screens can also include local area information, including maps, local news and details about local events.
