Onboard information and entertainment (infotainment) systems on mass transit authority (MTA) subways, trams and buses really began to grow in popularity around the turn of the century. These early systems were based on 12” TFT display units with a typical 4:3 format and were rather limited in their display of interesting and up-to-date content.
As a result, today’s real-time dynamic passenger information systems include connection information and have become a must. Such systems also typically include content such as news, weather information and sport updates – all produced in high-definition (HD) resolution (720p minimum) and in 16:9 format.
VIANOVA Technologies' own modular infotainment solutions go beyond these basic needs as they throw flexibility and expandability into the bargain. Delivering vibrant full HD images, the VIANOVA Technologies' display units can house digital cameras to perform additional video surveillance or passenger counting tasks.
