Different problems for different businesses cannot be solved with the same solution. This logic applies to the airport industry as well.
Located in West London, Heathrow is the busiest airport in the United Kingdom carrying over 60 million passengers a year. It needed new flight information display system (FIDS) screens
that deliver clarity with industry-leading brightness for its terminals in all 460 strategic locations throughout the terminal’s concourses, check-in areas and departure lounges. As you might expect, since these displays were going to be so prevalent, they also needed to be cost-effective.
Only Samsung’s large-format display (LFD)
range was broad enough to provide everything the Heathrow airport demanded. Not only could it deliver a full range of screen sizes, it could supply all the required variations of specifications within each segment. The screens incorporate Samsung’s own Digital Information Display (DID)
technology, which provides higher brightness and an exceptionally high contrast ratio (three times that of a traditional TV monitor), plus improved color saturation. At the same time, their operating temperature is exceptionally low, which eliminates image corruption.
Samsung’s embedded PCs
also make the screens highly cost-effective, since there is no need to purchase a separate computer for each screen. Moreover, Samsung delivered a state-of-the-art yet highly cost-effective digital display solution, including technical and sales support, on time and on budget.
