Powerful Sever-grade Computer for Multiple Displays
A Chinese international airport was seeking to replace its old LED flight summary boards with a state-of-the-art video wall that, in addition to the conventional flight details that keep passengers on time, would also display airport promotional materials, destination information and other vibrant content. As the airport accommodates millions of passengers each year, their system would have to be accurate, powerful, rugged and reliable enough for 24/7 non-stop operation, with no errors tolerated. These requirements add up to a perfect combination of displays, content, connectivity, and most importantly, strong back-end systems driven by a powerful server-grade computer.
