Project Profile: London’s New Cable Car Terminals

September 14, 2012 by Dave Haynes

London got its first cable car system just ahead of the Olympics this summer, with a gondola car service crossing the River Thames from the Greenwich Peninsula to the Royal Docks.

When you get on at either end, you see big video walls driving content for the line’s sponsor, Emirates Air Line. There are a total of 78 screens, put together by the Pioneer Group and running the Harris InfoCaster digital signage platform.

The display setups include 46-inch clusters and 24 individual 50-inch video screens. “At a time when a great deal of investment is being made in London this is a really eye-catching and arresting project — the stunning moving image quality on such large screens that we are able to create using Harris InfoCaster is tremendous,” says Paul Childerhouse, managing director at The Pioneer Group. “Alongside its technical capabilities, Harris’ willingness to support the installation with its team of engineers to help make sure that the system is doing exactly what we want and need has helped create a fantastic end result.”
