Mobile display units launched by London Heathrow

Display solutions provider NEC and technology manufacturer Parity Aviation have partnered with London Heathrow Airport’s Innovation Team to introduce a new generation of mobile display units (MDUs), providing passengers with real-time flight information and guidance during peak hours.

The MDUs have the appearance of permanent displays but are easy to maneuver and can operate on battery power for up to 35 hours. Each display is connected to the airport’s central management system via wi-fi.

The units feature 55in LCD HD screens connected to a wireless OPS slot-in embedded PC. Both devices are attached to a mobile chassis that can elevate the display up to 10.5ft high. The display’s locking function aids stability and its wheels can be retracted during deployment. 

Stephen Garner, passenger services manager for departures in Terminal 5, London Heathrow, said, “We know that our passengers have a better journey when they have all the information they need about the airport and their flight. The new displays are perfect for providing quick, up-to-date information and support to a large number of passengers, particularly when time is of the essence and situations change rapidly. We hope passengers will find them useful during their journey.”
