Flytoget initiated a tender process in 2012, in order to find the most suitable supplier of a new digital signage platform for the company’s Airport Express Train. The process has come to a conclusion and a contract is now signed with Mermaid.
Mermaid will install a large network of customised digital signage screens as well as implement fibre optic broadband in 16 train sets. The deal with Flytoget has been reached by Mermaid’s Norwegian subsidiary company Mermaid Norway, and manifests the company’s strong focus on the transport sector as well as the company’s commitment to offer professional media solutions at sharp prices. Within recent years Mermaid has thus become a key supplier of customised digital signage solutions within the Danish transport sector, and it is Mermaid’s ambition to gain a similar position in Norway, Sweden and other selected markets, as the one in Denmark. Flytoget’s new digital signage platform will be implemented in early 2013. The agreement signed defines Mermaid as supplier of all hardware and software. The Airport Express Train carries approximately 6 million passengers per year – from Oslo city centre to Oslo Airport.
