Clarity Visual Announces 200-Unit Airport Sale(August 22, 2001)
Under a competitively selected contract, Clarity's displays were selected for the large-scale display devices specified for the upgrades to Dulles' passenger terminal and two midfield concourses. The entire system is to be completed in June of 2003. Clarity's portion, which will be completed in 2002, is currently valued at approximately $1.2 million.
Clarity's 40-inch AP/LCD Wildcat rear-projection units will serve as Multi-User Flight Information Display Systems (MUFIDS), for the main terminal concourse and mobile launch docks, in a variety of configurations ranging up to as many as 40 units. Dayton, Ohio-based International Display Systems, Inc. (IDS) is responsible for the design and implementation of the unique Dulles airport configuration.
Dulles will use 40" Clarity displays in terminal and concourse areas with high ambient light conditions, mounting them mostly on walls at ceiling height.
According to Mike Williams, system designer at Big Sky, Inc. the system specifier for the Dulles project, some unique characteristics of the overall project include Web access, an Integrated Voice Response (IVR) system and a gigabit Ethernet network for airlines to update display information directly from their computer systems to the server on site.
"With an international airport like Dulles, the 25-30 airlines that will use these displays have a very user-friendly system to interface their systems and the ability to display international languages such as Japanese and Mandarin Chinese," said Williams. "The separation between displays is also minimal which makes it easy to create a video wall. But the overall footprint of the Clarity displays is small, so they don't take up a lot of space."
