The Greater Orlando Aviation Authority, in collaboration with Synect, has introduced an automated visual communication system at Terminal C in Orlando International Airport (MCO), US.
The 1.8 million-square-foot Terminal C was opened last month.
The informational communications programme consists of a creative custom video from the Central Florida region. It will display dynamic and automatically updated travel information across the airport.
This visual communication system is said to play across 872 connected screens at the new terminal.
Terminal C also includes additional displays at the security area, gates, arrivals, customs and border protection (CBP ), international and domestic baggage claim, ground transport and wayfinding route.
Synect’s Passenger360 platform, which is already used at Terminals A and B, is used to manage the network. This automation is enabled by Passenger360’s integration with MCO’s airport operations centre (AOC ).
The Passenger360 system will absorb changes made by the AOC and updates to airport activity, like flight schedules, wait times, weather, and potential emergencies, and quickly integrate into the massive visual communication network.
By automatically making thousands of updates per second to the dynamic informational content, the Passenger360 system can accommodate and reflect real-time airport activity.
Synect CEO Yahav Ran said: “The Orlando International Airport’s Terminal C is a flawless example of how visual communication can transform airport communication and the passenger journey.
“We are grateful to the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority for their ongoing commitment to innovation along with their purposeful use of content and technology to delight passengers while helping them navigate the airport environment.”
