Our display systems show passengers the destinations and times at countless stops, train stations and airports around the world. Designed and manufactured for indoor and outdoor use, the transflective properties provide information that is easy to read in all light and weather conditions. A specially developed energy management system ensures high environmental compatibility and low operating costs.
Our passenger information systems are integrated solutions. This means that the displays, electronic controls and software work together to create the perfect solution for your application and environment. That’s why we also deliver displays in combination with a Box PC, which provides current data for the display sequence independently of the on-board computer. Programming and control is via USB, Ethernet, IBIS or other standard interfaces.
Luminator Technology Group’s operator control interfaces are the link between transport employees and the displays in the vehicle. The desired display text, characters and images can be loaded via USB, wireless or Ethernet interfaces. Our control devices are very easy to install and simple to operate. Controls are optimized for ease of use by buttons or touchscreen.
Purpose-built design that is manufactured to withstand harsh environments is key to the reliability and durability of our recording systems. With the options for hybrid design that allows flexibility with the use of both IP and analog cameras, and a platform with resolution up to 4K our Recorders support up to 16 video cameras – optimal for maintaining a fleet-wide solution that provides full video coverage on all vehicle types, ranging from supervisor vehicles and smaller buses to LRVs and large multi-level trains.
Luminator Technology Group delivers NDAA-compliant, ruggedized camera solutions for transit — providing the highest quality recording and full video coverage for all types of transport vehicles. Luminator provides a wide-range of camera options, each with specific technology that is best suited for specific mounting locations. Unique technologies are deployed to capture the best video for each camera view, whether the camera is mounted in the interior of a railcar, or the exterior of a bus. Additional options and enhanced features include built-in audio recording, IR illumination for low-light conditions and high-resolution designed to capture small details and deliver unprecedented zoom capabilities.
Luminator displays are proven reliable and easy to use with decades of successful deployments. Clear video images and information is displayed allowing the driver to easily assess the current situation when reversing and at the doors. Together with our cameras, recorders and software, they form a coordinated system with many useful functions that support safe maneuvering of the vehicle as well as the safe embarking and disembarking of passengers.
