Mitsubishi Electric Completes Installation of Japan's Largest Digital Signage Systems at Narita International Airport
Narita International Airport has undertaken a fundamental review of airport information presentation and has introduced this digital signage system to deliver appropriate and timely information to its customers.
In addition to manufacturing the large display systems and the video streaming system, Mitsubishi Electric contributed to the overall concept design, including unit placement, design of the large display systems and LCDs, and video content creation, which includes choosing the clearest and most visually appealing fonts and progression speeds for each location and how to most effectively arrange displays to provide information and entertainment to waiting travelers.
Core features of the system include:
- Panorama Vision, the world's first seamless and smooth 160-degree OLED concave screen. It measures 9.6m x 1.9m (385-inch), consisting of 2,000 96mm x 96mm OLED panels.
- Large-scale multiple LCD screen units installed in all passenger terminal areas, including a 9.2m x 1.7m unit consisting of 27 46-inch display panels (equivalent to a 370-inch screen) as well as units made up of 16, 12, 8 and 4 panels, respectively.
- 42-inch touchscreen user stations created along the principles of universal design.
- Mediaway, a video streaming system, delivering full HD video to 100 display units simultaneously or independently, and capable of promptly switching from scheduled videos to emergency information.
