Mermaid technology a/s has won a really nice EU tender for the supply of an infotainment system for the S-trains owned and run by the Danish National Rail Company (DSB). This is by far the largest digital signage contract ever signed in Denmark, involving as it does; hardware, software and services totaling something like DKK 45 million.
Delivery of Infotainment systems to DSB’s S-trains will take place over the course of two years.
Henrik Johnsen, Managing director at Mermaid, told us “Signing this significant agreement in the transportation industry is a great breakthrough for us. The agreement is a result of our venture into this particular business area and represents a strategic breakthrough, nationally as well as internationally. The demand for digital signage in the public domain is clearly increasing, and DSB’s decision to implement an infotainment system is a logical consequence of this trend. Mermaid has the experience and size to carry out this assignment, and we look forward to getting started”
Once deployed S-train users will be able to experience targeted TV on screens in each train carriage – including news, entertainment and traffic information. The content will be financed by geographically targeted information and advertisements
