Chicago, IL (PRWEB) October 8, 2008

Flyte Systems, the leading provider of subscription-based airport flight information displays and digital signage content for the hospitality industry, convention centers and related businesses, announced it partnering with DisplayIQ, a respected provider of interactive digital signage to hospitality and other industries, to install real-time airline travel information at two properties on the DisplayIQ platform. Flyte Systems is the only company that provides real-time airline departure information.

Hotels implementing Flyte Systems airline information on the DisplayIQ interactive digital signage platform are the Fairmont Chicago and the Hyatt Regency Phoenix. A third installation is anticipated at a Ritz Carlton property by year end.

"At every property where we have installed our digital signage systems, managers asked for live flight time information," said Brian Cunningham, president of DisplayIQ, a division of RoomNet, Inc. "Hotel operators today know guests expect to have access to live airline information at any quality property. We utilize Flyte Systems' real-time airline information in an interactive format so guests see airline flight times and may even customize the view for their greatest ease of use." Cunningham explained DisplayIQ also deploys property information in a unique interactive platform that takes digital signage beyond traditional informational reader boards. "Our display solutions represent the next level in hospitality signage which incorporates interactive touch for photo-realistic wayfinding meeting information, live flight status, touch-to-dial and SMS functionality which connects guests instantly from their mobile phone to property attractions from dining to spa to golf or even the front desk."

Brian Reynolds, president of Flyte Systems, said, "As Flyte Systems expands services to more properties, hotel companies and convention centers, it is also partnering with leading digital signage providers like DisplayIQ that incorporate our live airline data into their interactive, guest-information technology." The Flyte Systems - DisplayIQ digital signage offering is an ASP-driven solution that delivers continuously updated information to ensure flight times are accurate and frees properties from system upgrade and maintenance responsibility.

Real-time Flight Information
FlyteBoard, developed by Flyte Systems, is a wall, floor or ceiling mounted high-definition, flat panel screen that properties locate in public areas to provide guests with 'glance-and-go' convenience for more confident travel planning. What sets Flyte Systems apart from PC-based applications is the ability to post accurate, real-time airline flight arrival and departure information, not FAA-regulated scheduled departure times that do not list delays caused by air traffic control, aircraft maintenance, crew availability and weather.

Flyte Systems offers a suite of products that serve the traveling public: FlyteBoard, FlytePass, FlyteChannel and FlyteTouch.

  •     FlyteBoard is a wall, floor or ceiling mounted high-definition, flat panel screen for lobbies, restaurants, bars and other public areas, displaying flight information for one or more airports.
  •     FlyteTouch enables individual guests to search flight information via touch screens that display real-time flight arrivals and departures for one or more airports.
  •     FlytePass uses FlyteTouch technology and adds free, secure boarding pass printing, packaged in an attractive all-wood kiosk.
  •     FlyteChannel permits guests to view live airport arrival/departure screens via their in-room TV.
