18 / 08 / 20

Hanover’s multimedia signage is helping the public transport sector deliver a rapid response during the Covid-19 pandemic, in an ever-changing communications environment.

The company’s TFT multimedia screens – purpose built for public transport environments – are being used to quickly convey the latest news, developments and advice to passengers.

Hanover’s TFTs have the ability to display still images, animated graphics and high definition videos, enabling users to get messages across in an attractive and reassuring format.

Programming is undertaken using Hanover’s own software package, making it quick and convenient to create compelling messages across an operator’s fleet.

Faris Bilal, Technical Support Manager said: “Hanover’s TFT systems enable bus operators to present more information to passengers, with the remote update function allowing content to be updated almost immediately and on a daily basis.

“While they are usually used to present complete vehicle routes, places of interest, connection points, timetables, promotional information and advertising messages, we are finding they are being increasingly adapted to deliver key messages during the pandemic.”

Hanover’s TFTs are available with a choice of both VGA and Ethernet communications options, and in a variety of sizes.

They are produced to the company’s renowned stringent manufacturing and quality control process, which underpins Hanover’s two-year warranty and offers the back-up of full technical support.

Hanover has a global reputation for innovation in passenger information systems within the public transport industry.

The company, which employs 200 people in Lewes, near Brighton, as well as over 100 additional staff across the world, was formed in Lewes, East Sussex, in 1985, as a designer and manufacturer of passenger information equipment for the public transport industry.

Over the years it has enjoyed sustained growth to become a global business, with subsidiaries in continental Europe, North America and Australia, and partnering agents in other overseas territories throughout the world.

Hanover specialises in audio-visual passenger information, automatic vehicle positioning, geo-localisation and fleet management.
