Advanced content management systems enhance airport experiences

Nov. 3, 2023
These advanced solutions can simplify the technology design of new terminals, reduce the labor burden on IT staff, and enable instant network-wide updates across multiple digital screens, Dan Verbsky writes for AviationPros.

FORT ATKINSON, Wis., - Digital displays are found almost everywhere these days, and whether they are providing information, advertisements or entertainment, they generally require constant monitoring to ensure reliable operation and manage content, which can include real-time data. In the transportation industry, where an airport may deploy hundreds of screens across miles of real estate, the latest easy-to-use content management systems (CMSs) are making it possible to centrally control content, power and emergency broadcast capabilities for virtually every type and size of digital screen from flight information displays and overhead banners to direct-view LED video walls and menu boards, Dan Verbsky writes for AviationProsContinue reading original article.

The Military & Aerospace Electronics take:

3 November 2023 - A digital signage network is only as good as the content it presents, Verbsky writes. Even though modern digital displays have evolved to support a multitude of functions, many users and operators are still stuck using antiquated content delivery methods such as manually loading content items onto each display via USB sticks. In fast-paced, captive-audience environments like airports, the advantages of CMS solutions, such as LG webOS, can deliver massive benefits for both internal operations and customer experiences.

Digital signage displays that use system-on-a-chip designs, for instance, can eliminate the need for external media player boxes that require their own power supply and typically end their lifecycle as e-waste. Since this design change can simplify installation for workers and remove the need for dozens or even hundreds of devices, both the energy and financial savings can be significant.
