A 10 Line true colour LED Video Wall display system has been commissioned by the Northeast Frontier Railway at New Jalpaiguri and Katihar stations to provide a host of information to the railway passengers.
A video wall is a special setup that consists of multiple computer monitors or television sets tiled together in order to form one large screen. The system is more attractive and dynamic then static displays.
NF Railway Chief Public Relation Officer PJ Sharma said this on Saturday and informed that it is being used for providing train arrival and departure information apart from coach guidance and platform numbers to passengers well in advance.
“So passengers can safely move to the respective platforms on time, to avoid last-minute rush. This system operates on dual view mode system; that is whatever changes are made by the operator the same will be displayed on the video wall fitted at the platform,” he said adding, the pre-planned data can be continuously run on the system as pre-fixed schedule.
He said the LED Video Wall system allows the railway officials to manage thousands of displays from a central location for the entire country.
“Broadcasting of different contents at the same time by dividing the screen into different regions is also there. The system has the potential for Indian railways to use the facility as a great source to earn revenue, as the advertisers can easily reach the huge masses 24×7 that throng railway stations regularly throughout the country,” Sharma added.
