New technology on show at Passenger Terminal Expo 2010

Imago Group plc, Europe’s largest video communications distributor, and CONRAC GmbH, which specialises in the development of high-end displays and display systems, have joined forces to deliver a unique and highly flexible passenger information solution. This will be revealed for the first time at Passenger Terminal Expo (March 23-25, Brussels).

CONRAC is an expert in FIDS (Flight Information Display Systems) and PIDS (Passenger Information Display Systems) which combine high performance screens with a complete hardware and software solution to control the display of information. It currently has airport installations in more than 60 countries worldwide.
Imago is a Master Distributor of the Tripleplay VIPtv family of products. This is a comprehensive range of software which delivers IPTV (high quality, multi-channel TV over Intranets), Video on Demand and High Definition Digital Signage. Tripleplay products have been deployed widely in the hotel, education and leisure sector.
As a result of the collaboration between CONRAC and Imago, a new, powerful and unique solution will provide a high quality screen, full information management, and the facility to broadcast live TV, stream recorded video, such as advertising, and display digital signage. This Flight Information Display System with a fully integrated IPTV solution is the first of its kind on the market.

“This is a real breakthrough for the airport information display system market,” said Peter Nice, Head of New Business Development at Imago. “The development of the FIDS technology now enables the screens to show video content in addition to flight information, and because the displays are of such a superior specification, the quality of the picture – whether it is live TV or streamed video – is of the highest resolution and clarity.”
Walter Hammel, Managing Director, CONRAC, said: “The addition of Tripleplay technology to our own solution provides our customers with a wealth of options, in terms of displaying innovative content. The new solution is extremely reliable, and has been proven to deliver 24/7 without interruption, which is vital in airport or travel termini locations.”

Imago and CONRAC will be providing demonstrations of the FIDS and IPTV solution working together at the exhibition on stand no. 3080.
