Swiss software developer NAVORI Sa has been awarded a contract for the digital signage system being deployed at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport. In a first phase, the NAVORI QL system will display wayfinding and flight information and real-time news and weather in the airport's main corridors.
In case of any calamity, emergency and evacuation messages can be triggered automatically. A second project phase includes further rollout in the airport building as well as the installation of digital signage in the terminal shuttle trains and buses. These transit screens will have secure 3G and Wi-Fi connection and will display location-based real-time information as well as audio and video announcements of the trajectory and gates. Audio files can be assigned to the transit player units announcing next stop or terminal information. Location-based and position-precise content can be created and delivered to these vehicles with NAVORI QL Manager.
"We'll have more of such projects in the pipeline, certainly with the upcoming hybridization of our NAVORI QL server platform," said Aurélien Defendi, sales director for Lausanne, Switzerland-based NAVORI. "Google Android player technology is becoming widely available on low-cost player hardware and this will seriously leverage new installs and extensions of existing networks."
The Android QL player will be fully compatible with the QL platform at the same TV-grade playback quality, the company.
This project was realized with NAVORI partner Entré Computer Solutions from its Beloit, Wis., offices. CAL Communications from Buffalo Grove, Ill., was the project integrator.
