Digital information and traffic control
Swedavia, the company that owns Sweden’s 10 major airports, commissioned NEC to provide giant LED screens in the check-in and baggage reclaim areas, so it could provide passengers with travel information and updates, advertising, promotions and other content. At 44 and 15 square metres respectively, these wall-sized screens provide attention-grabbing, ultra-bright visuals, keeping passengers informed and updated while also providing major new revenue and advertising opportunities.
Swedavia had specific requirements for the project, of which the most important was that the entire screens – not only the individual modules – should meet EMC Class B so that they did not cause an interference with other communications systems and devices in the terminal, or elsewhere in the airport.
We engineered two 3.91 mm direct view LED screens with special shielding so that they emitted negligible levels of electromagnetic radiation. After a period of robust testing, during which both NEC LED-B039i screens passed the EMC criteria with flying colours, the giant screens were unveiled last month and are now fully operational. We were responsible for every aspect of the project, from designing the modules, providing the power and data, manufacturing, installing and commissioning. The company also provided a back-end platform that enables Stockholm Arlanda Airport to compile and manage content from multiple sources for the screens into a single application.
