Chosen as an ideal large-screen display for the huge space of this international airport. High-resolution, full-HD images extend a warm welcome to visitors from overseas.
Since Kansai International Airport opened in 1994 as Japan's first round the-clock international airport, it has
become an active Asian hub.
The Kansai area has many popular sightseeing spots, such as Kyoto and Himeji Castle, which is a World Heritage Site, and they bring a lot of overseas visitors to the airport.
The total number of people using the airport has already exceeded 220 million (as of December 2006). With the aim of making the airport more pleasing to the people who use it, Kansai International Airport Co., Ltd. (KIAC) is constantly thinking of ways to improve its services. As part of these efforts, KIAC decided to install welcome boards in front of the international arrival gates on both the north and south wings. Panasonic 103-inch full-HD plasma displays were chosen for this purpose.
The international arrival lobby of the airport, where the welcome board is set up, is a colossal atrium that stretches from the first to the fourth floor. Initially, KIAC was planning to install a huge billboard in this space. When the 103-inch plasma display was released to the market, though, they decided to take a look at it. They chose the plasma display for the following reasons:
The 103-inch plasma display extends a warm welcome to visitors leaving the arrival gate after having passed through immigration procedures and picked up their luggage. The welcome message is shown in 15 languages.
The large screen stands out even in the huge atrium space and provides clear images from a distance.So many people gather around it, it has become something of a landmark.
