Italy’s Major Airports Feature ICMoving Infotainment Channel Powered by Scala4 min read
Nationwide Network Connects to More than 100 Million Travellers
When ICMoving set forth on a mission to become the first outdoor digital network providing information and entertainment to the public in Italian airports, the company knew it would change the television experience. The new ICMoving TV Network is an infotainment platform that broadcasts general information, advertising, entertainment and services throughout six major airports in Italy.
Working with Scala Certified Partner M-Cube, ICMoving launched the TV network, which spans 170 high-definition LCD displays in high-traffic airport locations. ICMoving uses Scala 5 software to manage all content that is driven to the screens. Through this set-up, the company can carry out its vision: Interacting with a large audience in various airports and enhancing the airport customer’s experience by broadcasting the highest level of information and entertainment.
The main benefit of the new Scala-based system is that ICMoving Channel can now guarantee much higher stability compared to the old network. In addition, the time needed to update content is significantly lower than before, and the system is much more user friendly. Most importantly, airport visitors no longer see the screens as traditional televisions, but as a modern and valuable infotainment platform.
“By using Scala, the entire network infrastructure guarantees precise real-time monitoring of all screens. Plus, our investors (the airports) can implement tailor-made solutions and broadcast content on single screens or clusters of screens,” said Marco Musacchio, ICMoving Managing Director. “They can also choose to broadcast to one or more airports, and it is possible to differentiate the broadcasts depending on time of the day.”
The ICMoving TV network is now broadcasting at the Roma Fiumicino, Milano Malpensa, Milano Linate, Bergamo Orio Al Serio, Venezia Marco Polo and Treviso Canova airports.
