One of the busiest airports in North America, Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (ABIA) is expanding its passenger terminal to meet the forecasted passenger growth at the airport.
The SpinetiX HMP100™ (hyper media player) is a fully featured network display controller for digital signage, video walls and kiosks. It allows to simultaneously and dynamically blend any kind of media from any network source and to position it anywhere in the scene. Moreover it is compatible with any digital signage frontend through standard XML languages.
Digital signage for airports
What does the HMP100 mean for airports? First of all the display controller is a very small embedded and purpose-build device. This means that the device is extremely reliable and that there are no maintenance costs. Secondly, thanks to open standard technologies it can be easily integrated into existing solutions or being used to create additional applications for travelers (eg: instant messaging for evacuation solutions, audio-video streaming, touch screens for kiosk applications, integrations with RFID, GPS and 3G, etc). The HMP100 is not just a simple media player, it is a platform which allows to connect news, weather and airport information. It can be used for way-finding, flight tables, advertisement and emergency notifications. All this with this little box which is not only extremely compact and reliable but also environmentally friendly (only 2W of power consumption).

Future-proof digital signage systems for airports
Currently, one of the most misguided airport strategies is to use a PC-based advertisement solution without anticipating of future integration possibilities. The HMP100 is the unique alternative to proprietary, PC-based solutions which allows you to integrate with a parking system, queuing system or to simply show ‘go-to-gate’ messages mixed with entertainment. Without the need for central servers and without any recurring licence fees, the SpinetiX devices are easy to install. Moreover the compact equipment comes with a life-time warranty as there is no need for maintenance. This makes HMP100 digital signage a truly future proof, cost-effective and interoperable system thanks to the use open standard technologies.
