Hanover launches new Smart TFT products
Hanover has launched new Smart TFT products to meet the needs of an increasingly digitised public transport sector looking to offer passengers the best onboard experience possible.
With features including multiple displays, mixed display sizes and resolutions, the new TFTs offer greater flexibility, attractive aesthetics and the reassurance of a two-year warranty as standard.
Used in conjunction with Hanover’s passenger information system software, the new displays can use templates to split display areas up for different content types – such as passenger information, next stop and transfer updates and stop accessibility details – in both static and video format.
They can also show real time information, such as rail, airport, weather and Twitter feeds, and include different content on different displays simultaneously to deliver a complete range of information from various sources.
Developed to operate under a seamless process, the templates and media content can be updated wirelessly and the TFTs are capable of integrating IP based displays through on-board architecture.
A spokesperson from Hanover’s Technical Sales Team said: “The new Smart TFTs maximise opportunities for operating companies to communicate with passengers in a highly engaging format.
“Offering a compact design and installation solution, the new Smart models are slimmer and lighter than our previous TFTs, and can be specified in different sizes, aspect ratios and mounting options to make the most of space available.
“Utilising LED backlighting makes these brighter for clearer messaging, and they can be operated through a choice of interfaces including Ethernet based, VGA, DVI, HDMI and Display Port.”
Hanover has an international reputation for innovation in passenger information systems within the public transport industry.
The company employs 200 people in Lewes, near Brighton, and almost 100 staff across the globe.
Hanover was formed in Lewes, East Sussex, in 1985 as a designer and manufacturer of passenger information equipment for the public transport industry.
Over the years it has enjoyed sustained growth to become a global business, with subsidiaries in continental Europe, North America and Australia, and partnering agents in other overseas territories throughout the world.
As well as the latest innovation in audio-visual passenger information, Hanover also specialises in high-definition LED display technology, automatic vehicle positioning, geo-localisation and fleet management.
