The InfoComm trade show action starts way before the thousands of attendees step foot inside the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando., June 12-14. This year, LG is rolling out the welcome mat for the 44,000 people coming and going through the Orlando International Airport with the installation of more than 1,200 advanced LG digital signage displays.
700 Videowall Screens Create 1,561-Foot Display
A total of 700 LG 55-inch ultra-thin-bezel videowall screens were installed at the airport to create a continuous 1,561-foot digital display wall behind airline counters, and another 500 LG displays were installed for way-finding from the check-in areas to concessions to security checkpoints.
“The massive Orlando videowall exemplifies how advanced display technologies can transform the airport experience,” says Clark Brown, vice president, digital signage, LG Electronics USA Business Solutions. “This major project showcases LG’s commitment to leadership in the transportation sector, and we’re proud how LG technology has brought GOAA’s (Greater Orlando Aviation Authority) vision to life.”
In Plane Switching Ensures Accurate Color and Contrast
Each display features LG’s In Plane Switching (IPS) panel technology to ensure accurate color saturation and contrast, even at wide viewing angles. The Orlando project also requires accurate color and brightness calibration across multiple displays – an important factor for multiple airline companies.
LG Electronics, along with communications/IT solutions provider SITA and visual communications innovator Synect, worked to design and install the LG ultra-high definition videowall, which delivers a wide viewing angle, while integrated with the airport management system that allocates airline check-in counters and gates autonomously based on real-time flight and airport data. The airport is applying a year ‘round digital content strategy with Synect for seasonal campaigns and promotions, as well as a digital airport envoy named Annie the Astronaut who helps passengers navigate through the airport. In addition, interactive games entertain its young travelers and decrease perceived wait times.
