EUROPE: Oran Safety Glass has won its first contract to supply its ScreeneX glass-embedded high-resolution LCD screens. The order has been placed by CN-Consult, which will incorporate ScreeneX into 170 InnoScreen overhead displays which are to be installed this year at stations in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
ScreeneX uses insulated, laminated or tempered glass suitable for use in signs, partitions, vehicle doors and windscreens. According to OSG, it is tamper-proof and resistant to vibration and temperature extremes. Real-time information as well as advertising content can be programmed via a server.
‘This initial public rollout of ScreeneX is an exciting opportunity for us to show off the system's capacity for high resolution video, text and graphics’, said OSG Chief Executive Daniel Cohen. ‘It is an ideal use of the technology, keeping European rail passengers up-to-date with timetables, safety alerts, weather and news updates. I'm especially proud of our R&D team and engineers who have created incredible products that are virtually impossible to vandalise.’
