Digital Information system
Since the 2013/2014 winter season, Zermatt Bergbahnen has kept visitors up to date with local news in daily bulletins at a number of central locations. In setting up the resort-wide project the company was able to count on the support of experienced professional partners: netvico GmbH for digital signage and richnerstutz AG for large-format printing.
46-inch screens in the matterhorn paradise
The 46-inch screens of the digital information system are situated close to the turnstiles. They provide visitors with up-to-date information, including open facilities and slopes, wind and temperature readings and the time of the last descent. A particular feature of the digital displays is that they provide a flexible and direct means of broadcasting news. They also carry image films and webcam shots from different stations, offering authentic impressions of the alpine world.
The displays are installed both indoors and outdoors. The housings are fully air-conditioned and able to withstand the extremes of temperature experienced in the Alps, ranging from minus 40º to plus 55º Celsius. Thanks to a special non-reflective protective glass, information is easy to read, even in bright sunlight. Outdoors, the displays are fitted into metal frames which are a striking visual feature of the stations.
the most impressive digital signage medium in the resort
Trockener Steg has the centrepiece: a wall of nine linked monitors that is over three metres wide and almost two metres in height. This is currently the most impressive digital signage medium in the Zermatt resort area.
