Digital Signage for information display systems is used by the transportation industry. Flight information display systems (FIDS) are commonly used in the airline sector to generate live data feeds that are shown on digital signage screens. These screens can be found in and around airport terminals where they provide a steady stream of flight and wayfinding information for passengers and staff, while digital signage screens installed outside terminals redirect traffic in and around the airport during holidays or peak travel periods.
Other types of information display systems perform similar functions in train stations and bus terminals. They all share the same features, such as the ability to display live data feeds and useful travel information in real-time.
FIDS and other travel-related data feeds have become extremely popular with businesses outside the transportation industry. For example, hotels, convention centers, corporate and government offices use this information to keep staff and visitors updated on the latest travel advisories and flight updates with a mix of KPI dashboards, live news, and entertainment feeds.
QL’s intuitive template and ticker design tools are especially useful for managing and delivering FIDS and other types of live data without the use of programming languages or special technical expertise.
QL users simply drag and drop various elements on their templates to create content that informs and captivates. Incorporate text, geometric shapes, graphical overlays, playlist zones, media zones, and data feeds organized in tables or individual fields to your layouts.
QL also offers a dynamic data feed feature that can activate or trigger any content based on live data, such as incident reports, weather alerts and travel information.
Integrate QL with any transportation scheduling system using the QL Server API and create your own transportation signage system efficiently.
Use the QL Player API to trigger any content using external programs. Automate your messaging and create interactive applications based on any third-party software, GPS location or other external input.
Once triggered, content takes over the screen until it is no longer required, and your regularly scheduled programming resumes.
