The Halifax International Airport Authority (HIAA) has migrated the first 100, of a total of 150, of its displays to the Omnivex Moxie software solution. Working with the Omnivex local Value Added Reseller, 3D catacomb, the Halifax International Airport Authority will continue to replace their existing display management system, consisting of the remaining 50 displays, over the next two months.

After a formal selection process, Omnivex Moxie was chosen for its ability to give the HIAA full control over the content displayed to their customers. In addition to flight, gate and baggage information, HIAA also plans to extend the system to include interactive way finding for travelers and internal communications to their staff.

"We are excited about the possibilities," said Mike Maxwell, HIAA Director of Business Solutions & IT. "Omnivex Moxie allows us to realize our vision of being able to present any message on any screen at the airport, giving us unlimited possibilities to ensure the best information is being presented to the traveling public and our airport staff."

San Francisco Airport's Wayfinding Touchscreens

San Francisco International Airport (SFO) services more than 41 million domestic and international travelers annually. The airport is one of the largest in the United States and features 4 terminals with 7 boarding areas. Back in 2012 SFO launched a project to renovate Boarding Area E. As a part of this project SFO chose Omnivex Moxie to create an interactive wayfinding tool in this renovated area that would eliminate the need for various static maps, assist in navigating from terminal to terminal, and provide travelers with the best route to get where they need to go.
