Gail Chiasson, North American Editor

Omnivex Corporation, Concord, Ontario, announced yesterday (June 20/13) that 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 datacomb, HIAA will continue to replace its existing display management system, consisting of the remaining 50 displays, over the next two months

After a formal selection process, Omnivex Moxie was chosen as the best solution that gives the HIAA full control over the content displayed to its customers. In addition to flight, gate and baggage information, HIAA also plans to extend the system to include interactive wayfinding for travelers and internal communications to its staff.

Mike Maxwell, HIAA director of business solutions & IT, says, “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. We’re also very happy that the best-in-breed solution we chose is all Canadian.”

Halifax Robert L. Stanfield International Airport is Atlantic Canada’s principal full service airport, providing passengers and cargo clients with access to markets across Canada, the U.S. and Europe. It’s the only airport in Atlantic Canada to offer U.S. preclearance and Canada Customs services on a 24- hour, seven-days-a-week basis. The Airport is a major economic generator, valued at over $1.26 billion to the provincial economy, welcomes over 3.6 million passengers annually, and is an internationally recognized leader in customer service, having been rated the Best Airport in the World in its class for seven of the past 10 years.
