Dublin Airport Authority (DAA) has awarded a contract to Intersystems to install 133 NEC P402 40” LCD Monitors with the latest open pluggable specification (OPS) controllers.  The airport will be the first in the world to utilise this integration.
With around 60,000 passengers and more than 600 aircraft movements a day, Dublin is the busiest airport in Ireland and one of the ten busiest in Europe.
The OPS controllers, the result of collaboration between NEC, Intel and Microsoft, will also be the first to operate with Intersystems’ latest VisionClient software and deliver an internally-integrated solution on any display with an OPS-compliant slot.
Bruce Allen, Intersystems’ CEO, commented: “This is the first sale of these NEC OPS controllers anywhere in the world, so we’re excited to launch this with the DAA team and our partners at NEC.  It’s a massive step forward in controller independence which is built right into the monitor allowing for greater flexibility for the airport.”
The new displays will replace Intersystems’ older CRT monitors throughout Terminal 1 initially and are expected to be in place by mid-year.  The contract also allows the same services to be provided at other DAA airports, Shannon and Cork.
