Enplug, Syncromatics Showcase Transit Digital Signage at DSE 2018

Enplug and Syncromatics are modernizing mass transit systems with what company officials call “innovative digital signage technology,” and they plan to showcase it at Enplug’s Digital Signage Expo 2018 booth [#2908] in Las Vegas March 27-29.

“Transit authorities around the country are installing digital displays on buses and in bus shelters to provide real-time information to passengers,” according to the joint announcement. “These displays show live information from different sources with bus arrival times, service alerts, and more to provide a crucial communication channel for improving the transit user experience.”

Syncromatics and Enplug’s Cloud-based Digital Signage in Action

Recently, Anaheim Resort Transportation in southern California implemented a new digital signage system. Multimedia info-tainment screens on 80 buses provide real-time information and advertising to guests visiting Disneyland and other area attractions. The content changes automatically based on where each bus is along its route through an integration with Syncromatics’ cloud-based dispatching software.

Enplug’s open software development kit enables third-party developers like Syncromatics build apps on its platform, making it an optimal choice for custom projects.

Syncromatics uses Enplug’s cloud-based digital signage software platform to deploy real-time content across its network of displays. Enplug DisplayOS supports real-time content triggering based on geolocation, time, social media interactions, or any other event.

According to Syncromatics CEO Ian Sephton, “Partnering with Enplug has given us the technology platform we need to bring our solutions to the market in less time and with more scalability than we could build on our own.”

Enplug CEO Nanxi Liu said, “The rider experience on mass transit systems is long overdue for improvement. We’re excited about our partnership with Syncromatics that makes rides more enjoyable.”

Laser phosphor projectors, which emit a more consistent light output over their lifetimes, becoming increasingly popular choices as sources for digital signage billboards in transit hubs around the world. With lasers as their light sources, laser phosphor projectors offer up to 20,000 hours of projector life at maximum brightness, according to NEC senior product manager for projectors Richard McPherson.

Laser stay cooler for longer in extreme conditions, offer clearer images and remain easy to view whether someone is close to the digital signage display or far away, he says.
