Passenger Information Displays

LCD displays can be used in place of the LED displays either as a part of the purchased system or as an upgrade from the LED displays. These displays do not require an Ethernet backbone to be present and so can make use of the Power Line communications that are already present within the existing train-wires.

When not wholly occupied as Passenger Information Displays, they can be scheduled by the TrainFX media system to display rich moving and static graphical video information such as rolling maps – giving precise location information and advising time of arrival

Operator’s specific content can be produced, formatted, uploaded and scheduled by the TrainFX media team to play out on portrait or landscape screens using the TrainFX storage / player / scheduling systems flexible algorithms.

The landscape screens can be of any size depending on the installation restrictions. These are typically 1920 pixels wide by 378 pixels high.

Centralised Back Office

The centralised back-office consists of an application server provided as a managed service. It provides the capability to include operations, route planning and maintenance to interact with the system using a distributed web interface.

Route databases are disseminated to vehicles via internet and 3G/4G cellular service provider. The centralised back-office also allows the user to track the fleet in near real time.

The user can then select an individual train in order to display the train status giving a snapshot of all the system configuration and status.
