Norwegian Rail Choo-Choo-Chooses Omnivex Digital Signage

Norway’s Minister of Transport and Communications, Magnhild Meltveit, recently opened the newly renovated Lillehammer train station, announcing that it would be the model for all 400 existing stations in Norway. The new station features 16 LCD displays, powered by Omnivex Moxie Software providing bus and train schedules along with other local information. A driving factor behind the installation was the need to improve accessibility for those with disabilities. This has been achieved through the use interactive displays which support communication for the hearing and vision impaired. The project was developed and implemented by Rom Eiendom AS, one of the largest property companies in Norway, with support from local systems integrator, Hatteland Solutions.          

"Our goal has been that Lillehammer would be the most modern and contemporary public transport hub. We thank everyone who has been involved in an exciting collaboration and we wish Lillehammer happiness with a modern coaching facility covering all the needs of future travelers when it comes to waiting rooms, information, services and accommodation," says Paul Berger, CEO Rom Eiendom. Geir Ove Finstad from Hatteland Solutions has been working with Rom Eiendom to identify the best technologies for future transportation hubs since 2009. “This project has proven again that with the right technology you can remove barriers and make accessibility equal for everyone” said Finstad.
