Turku, Finland – 10 September 2018 – Teleste Corporation will introduce a new series of ultrawide TFT LCD displays for public transport at InnoTrans 2018.

Creating new possibilities for on-board information delivery and advertisements

Compared to conventional on-board displays, Teleste’s ultrawide displays can be more conveniently installed in horizontal spaces, which you can find, for example, above doors, passageways and windows. Public transport operators will have an excellent opportunity to benefit from the high content availability, enabled by the overhead installation and excellent UHD image quality of the displays. For passengers, there is no more struggling to see travel information in crowded metros, trains and busses; instead, the information will be displayed where everybody can easily see it.

The ultrawide displays also introduce new ways of utilizing versatile information and advertisement applications. Their technology allows them to be connected together seamlessly in order to create extra-large screens, or they can be used as single screens. This provides dynamic ways to raise attention to the delivered content: in addition to displaying individual content on each display, you can also split the content between several displays to create a powerful, panoramic view. Operators can also utilize the displays for dynamic route maps, visualizing, for example, travel origins and destinations or other types of passenger information via graphic images or Flash.

Teleste’s ultrawide TFT LCD displays in a nutshell:

  • Designed especially for the needs of public transport
  • Excellent image quality with up to 3840 pixel resolution on the long side
  • Seamless images with almost one metre of maximum width for a single display
  • Free chaining of displays to create display solutions for different interior designs and constructions
  • Excellent readability of content in all lighting conditions, guaranteed by high brightness and the ultrawide viewing angle
  • High colour saturation and the easy creation of colour schemes to highlight, for example, special themes, dates and events
  • Low lifecycle costs, ensured by a fanless design and reliable technology
  • Part of Teleste’s rail-proven and trusted Mitron display family

Utilizing the ultrawide displays as a part of Teleste’s on-board solution also enables a new level of diagnostics, where the on-board system can be used to ensure that all display panels in the ultrawide construction are operational and online.
