Southern Railway, a major Indian Government Organization, has installed digital signage system at the Egmore Railway Station in Chennai. To provide passengers with clearer and quicker updated information, Southern Railway started out a large scale deployment of digital public information display system, which was adopted to add on to the traditional broadcasting system. The Video over IP Specialist- A & T Network Systems Pvt. Ltd., the premier Systems integrator of similar projects in India, chose CAYIN Technology as its overseas partner who has specialized in developing digital signage solutions.
Easy Management & Data Synchronization over Server and Players
One primary CAYIN CMS-Performance Server and a spare server have been set and connected to the Railway database server equipped with an administration panel which is used to edit platform numbers and arrival timing based on actual status. To extend the information from the central railway database server to any stations on the railway network catering to Chennai Division, six CAYIN’s SMP-WEB signage media players, supporting full-screen HTML/Flash/JPG and real-time video playback, and 42-inch LG plasma televisions have been collocated at concourses, passenger waiting halls, reservation campus, and platforms.
Capability of Presenting Diversified Multimedia Contents and Information
With CAYIN digital signage media players, contents can be demonstrated diversely in displays according to different occasions and situations. For instance, in the concourse, train arrival and departure information including scheduled time, expected time, delays, and platform numbers are showed on the main screens along with commercials and warning messages in moving tickers. Furthermore, live TV news, dramas, and movie trailers can also be broadcasted thanks to the live streaming programs fed from CMS server to SMP media players.
Train information can also be displayed specifically at particular platforms so that passengers, benefitting from better facility, can know exactly which platforms they should go in an instant. In general, the digital signage system not only assists passengers to manage their travel time efficiently and conveniently but also saves the administrators’ total costs of ownership.
“We are very glad that CAYIN Digital Signage products were chosen in this project and have the opportunity cooperating with our prestigious local partner, A & T Network Systems, who has been playing an essential role in project consultation, integration and implementation” said Ravel Chi, the vice president of CAYIN Technology. “It’s always our goal to bring out technology more and more broadly into different industries and this deployment in Indian railway indeed involves many fundamental functionalities through digital media technology. We treasure the partnership which allowed CAYIN Digital Signage solution to benefit from this important transportation application in India, one of the starry BRIC!”
