Modular TFT display for buses and trains

With the new TFT display PIDvisio3, INIT has once again demonstrated its capability to persistently improve its product range. The result of the latest product update is a modular-based design which can ideally be adapted to the customers’ needs. The high resolution display is available in virtually any size.

  • Double-mounted installation possible
  • Infotainment
  • Real-time transfer information
  • Slim design

Durable, modern and budget-friendly

Due to the standardisation of many components and the use of proven displays that have been manufactured for industrial use, INIT is able to provide a passenger information display which is durable, modern and budget-friendly. Since the design forgoes moving parts and fans, the display is totally maintenance-free.

In its standard version, PIDvisio3 offers a 47 cm (18.51") TFT display screen which perfectly meets market requirements. The HD resolution (1366 x 768 pixels) provides passengers with high quality infotainment, ensuring that every journey becomes an entertaining experience. This experience is guaranteed through autoadjust brightness (max. 400 cd/m2 ) and 1000:1 display contrast. Outsourcing the device control to the on-board computer (via ethernet) results in a slimline design and a significantly reduced weight compared with the previous model. With a display size of 47 cm (18.51") and an aspect ratio of 16:9, the overall dimensions of the standard version are just 47 cm x 29 cm x 5 cm.

Furthermore, the aluminium housing and modular display concept mean that virtually any display size can be produced costefficiently. This also includes the extrawide screen display in 16:3 format.

Two-display installation

Thanks to the minimal width of the frame, two displays can be installed next to each other – an option that is increasingly used in public transport vehicles. This two-display installation makes it possible to combine relevant travel data with infotainment, so that passengers don’t miss important information.

Revenues can be increased by utilising a location-based infotainment system, while the INIT multimedia data centre helps to manage the advertising slots.
