DC Media FIDS in a Box Digital Sign (DMFB) Product Details
FIDS in a Box is an add-on module for use in the DC Media Digital Sign technology and is designed to provide display functionality for real time flight arrival/departure information in digital signage displays.
The easy to use interface provides the client with the ability to insert a flight information table in a digital sign and modify visual aspects such as fonts, color, colunms, sizing, logo's etc. Because the flight information is listed in the digital sign as an object, other multimedia elements can also be included such as advertising banners, scrolling messages, promotional material and flight safety information.
