Coveted SBB infrastructure award bestowed upon Daktronics

Posted on August 7, 2015

Daktronics announced its acceptance of an Infrastructure Partner Award from Switzerland’s largest travel and transport company, Schweizerische Bundesbahnen (SBB).

The award distinguishes Daktronics for the excellence of its successful pilot installation in the city of Neuchâtel, which included two LED displays. The installation was completed in October 2014 and deemed to be in a very short time frame offering great customer service.

Daktronics partnered with SBB to install 50 LED video displays – a total of 475 square metres – throughout 17 railway stations across Switzerland. Following the pilot, the next 40 displays at 14 different railway stations will be installed between July and November 2015, with the installation of eight additional displays at another two locations to be installed through 2018.

SBB is the first public transport company in Europe to introduce large-screen, central displays with LED technology of this scope across its network. The project upgrades SBB’s technology from flip-digit displays and some previously existing digital signage, to a full remit of new LED displays that are more flexible, easier to control and service, and ensure clear, visible customer information at its stations. The displays will show a combination of train schedules and travel information to advertising and emergency messages.

Pete Egart, VP of EMEA & Latin America, stated, “It is a great honor for Daktronics to receive this award from SBB. The project itself is a ground-breaking first in EMEA and Daktronics is very proud to have partnered with SBB to achieve this common goal. To win an award for the high quality and discretion of the install – elements we consider as standard practice at Daktronics - aligns our current practices and the strongly held understanding that our customers are at the focus of our business.”
