TRAINPAD® AT A GLANCE
a revolution for rail info and passenger amusement, it’s a beginning of a new era
TrainPAD® is a high quality device featured by a 9 or 10.6 and 12.1 Inches high resolution LCD Display with strong ‘multi touch’, ‘NFC’ interface, stereo audio and other advanced and attractive features. A compact, low power and light weight design, makes TrainPAD® a truly surprising high performance device for individual, highly enjoyable, on train entertainment offer. TrainPAD® brings the well known and universally appreciated user experience, performance and versatility of ‘pad’ devices on a train, jointly to the high level of robustness and reliability required by the rail standards.
For the first time on a public ground vehicle TrainPAD®, empowered by the standard Ethernet or the proprietary HDL technology, offers a virtually unlimited set of top class multimedia services, including the chance to get the most fascinating and trendy ‘APPs’ from one of the largest ‘APP’ store on the world, or to enjoy the once exclusively developed by the rail Operator for its value Customers. Overall, TrainPAD® can be continuously updated with new services, features and attractive ‘APPs’ and can be foundation for a promising new business model for the rail Company.
At the heart of TrainPAD® there are the universally standard recognised Ethernet architecture or the proprietary ‘Hyper Dot Link’ (HDL) technology. The HDL revolutionary technology, specifically designed and proven for the high demanding rail requirements, delivers up to two high quality ‘HD’ class videos, high quality stereo audio and bidirectional data over a low cost, highly standardized Cat5e shielded Ethernet cable inside a rail vehicle. Moreover, on the same Cat5e cable, the HDL technology carries the Power supply for the two TrainPAD® units sharing the same cable. The ‘head’ of the TrainPAD® devices is centralized in a technical room in the ‘Centralized PAD Processors Array’ (‘CPPA’) units.
‘Centralized PAD Processors Array’ means no processing resource inside the TrainPAD® device. The processing power supporting the TrainPAD® device needs, are concentrated in the technical compartment of the vehicle. A contactless interface equipping the TrainPAD® device, ‘discloses the doors’ toward an ‘endless world’ of paid services and virtual market, as well as personalized services like loyalty programs and incentives.
For a standard conservative choice, the TrainPAD® is available for installation with the common Ethernet standard architecture (WiFi and with cables connections).
