Digital signage can be used by airports for general information, alerts, advertising, and wayfinding in busy locations to help arriving and departing passengers navigate the airport more easily. Effective signage will also encourage travellers to spend more time in the airport engaging with the digital environment or shopping.

Some common uses for digital signage include check-in counters, security checkpoints, concourses, commercial areas, baggage claim, and scheduling. Using digital signage in key locations can allow transport hubs to elevate their brand and provide a memorable customer experience.

The importance of infrastructure spending is becoming more widely recognised, meaning that businesses who operate transport locations are investing in new technology such as DVLED displays to improve passengers’ travel experiences. Technology will become further integrated into transit hubs such as airports, which will provide a better level of service and reduce the need for person-to-person contact.

High-performance display systems for airports

LG offers commercial transportation display solutions, along with the necessary software platforms for simple integration and remote management. Signage and display solutions are important for bringing clarity to busy situations. In emergencies, clear and visible signage is important for safety, and display systems need to be reliable, clear, and flexible.

With the development of new digital signage and display technology, professionals in the transportation industry have many choices available for designing hub information environments. A well-designed display system helps to create a better experience for travellers and makes operations easier for transport managers.

Direct view LED signage

LG produces both indoor and outdoor Direct View LED Signage solutions (DVLED) that use vivid colours to create an engaging viewing experience. DVLED solutions are suitable for use in high-traffic areas and are available in resolutions ranging from Full HD to 8K Ultra HD.

LG’s signage solutions are also available in 25 different sizes, from 81in to 49ft, making them suitable for various different applications. To best fit in with the surrounding environment, the display systems come in both 16:9 and 39:9 ultra-stretch formats. For fast and efficient system integration, each display comes pre-configured and includes an LG intelligent controller for easy operation.

DVLED displays are made up of thousands of light-emitting diodes (LEDs) mounted onto a display panel, without using liquid crystal polarised glass. No backlight is required, and the LEDs produce the required image themselves. Benefits of DVLED displays include vibrant colours, effective contrast ratios, and high brightness levels. The displays also have no bezels, meaning several panels can be joined together to form a video wall. They are also energy efficient with a high refresh rate, making them suitable for high-impact visuals.

DVLED displays for indoor applications come with the ability to curve the display for the perfect viewing angle. Customers can also choose the correct brightness and pixel pitch for different situations, making the displays suitable for indoor environments.

DVLED displays for outdoor use are designed for uses such as wayfinding, dynamic directionals, information signage, and more. Outdoor DVLED displays are available in a range of resolutions and sizes, making them suitable for many different situations. They are also certified to withstand adverse environments and are resistant to dust and moisture.

LG outdoor DVLED displays can deliver high levels of colour and brightness in outdoor conditions, including in direct sunlight. For larger outdoor displays, the LBS Stadium Series Large Format DVLED Signage has a brightness of 6,000 nits that can be extended up to 8,500 nits.

Remote display management software

LG also offers a range of software platforms for remote management and easy integration. LG’s webOS platform is an all-in-one software system and hardware based upon the popular webOS Smart TV Platform. With this platform, users can download content to create customised applications and update them easily and quickly. LG’s digital displays feature a system-on-a-chip (SoC), which is designed to work with LG’s webOS platform. The high-performing chip helps to lower ownership costs as it eliminates the need for an external PC or media player.

Using Wi-Fi, Smart Platform Signage can be updated via smartphone or tablet, without the need for a wired connection or network infrastructure. Built upon web-based standards such as JavaScript, CSS, and HTML 5, the webOS platform allows users to control their displays remotely. The platform also includes security features to protect file integrity and prevent unauthorised outside access.
