More details for New Street
Passenger information displays at Birmngham New Street have been upgraded to provide travellers with more details including arrival times at destinations on route and reservation levels in the carriages.
Passengers using Birmingham New Street are now even better informed than ever about services and the trains they are boarding following the upgrading of passenger information displays in the station to provide additional details.
Developed in partnership with Worldline and Virgin Trains and brought to fruition by passenger information display (PID) specialist Infotec, the provision of additional detail helps with passenger management.
First introduced at London Euston, the approach allows the displays to present passengers with up-to-date details about the reservation levels in each carriage, potential cycle storage, arrival times at each calling point and the location of quiet zones within the trains, alongside the core details.
It speeds up embarking, helps reduce dwell times on platforms and is proving very popular with rail users.
Infotec designed and manufactured scores of displays for New Street when it was redeveloped a couple of years ago and the new details have been added, within the limits of the line-based technology of the existing displays.
The line-based displays used at New Street have since been superseded by Infotec’s full matrix range; with the FM87P being the latest main board design. The new FM range of displays enable even more detailed graphics to be used and offer the smoothest of scrolling and enhanced animations such as page transitions.
The FM87P displays, manufactured at Infotec’s factory in Leicestershire, have most recently been deployed at London Waterloo with other locations looking to introduce them in the near future.
Infotec continues to expand into the on-vehicle display sector, A year-long trial in New York City is the latest achievement.
Infotec is pleased to announce successful registration to the Environmental Management System Standard ISO 14001: 2015, providing independent approval of the systems and the procedures we have developed.
Infotec's considerable expertise and experience is proving useful in the on-vehicle display sector, as a second order for the Vancouver Metro proves
