s a result of many years of experience
in display systems design, Transinform is now able to offer its new product
the monitors intended for collective use, based on wide-format TFT LCD panels
with embedded PCs. The monitors with screen sizes of 32, 42, 47 or 55 inches
represent the latest generation models of color liquid crystal TFT panels.
A built-in controller allows to generate images on the monitor screen and to
control most of the image properties over the local network, based on the specified
program or operator commands directed from a workstation or a central server.
The application of state of the art technologies and the use of industrial
quality components allow achieving a very high image quality in terms of brightness,
contrast, and full color. The images displayed are free of blinking, jitter,
and geometric distortions. Anti-reflex glass contributing to image contrast
enhancement also provides protection against tampering, while the embedded computer
intended for built-in systems is extremely robust, contains no electromechanical
parts, and supports a highly flexible functionality. Constant monitoring and the
Watchdog function create truly invaluable capabilities to ensure uninterrupted
operation of FIDS. The monitor design features support displaying Video and S-Video
images. The monitor has a simple and service-friendly design to encompass elegant
appearance and compact size. These features not only address the issues of customer
service technology, but also contribute to the attractive terminal interiors.
The TFT LCD monitors are not the only devices to be integrated into FIDS.
Depending on the specific terminal architecture and customer preferences,
we are able to provide panels based on liquid crystals, flap indicators,
large LCD boards, etc. During the preparation phase of each project for building
a visual notification system for travelers, Transinform will be actively involved
in designing and, if requested by the customer, will manufacture the supports
for monitors and illuminated signs. When faced with the task of creating a FIDS
in any given airport, we exercise a comprehensive approach to the task at hand.
In addition to the FIDS supplied to the customer for outfitting the airport,
we provide static illuminated signs that are meeting the IATA requirements and
are manufactured to fit the monitor design style including matching color patterns.
In the systems development and commissioning, we at Transinform assign a high
priority to the training of customer's personnel and providing support throughout
the entire system life. During that period, the personnel may at any time receive
consultations and make real time modifications to the control software applications,
which are normally required in the long-term facility operation due to the changes
in terminal architecture or traveler service technologies.
