The Klang Valley Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) railway line in Malaysia was the first of three new lines planned to serve the Greater Kuala Lumpur area, with 31 stations serving a population of 1.2 million. The 51km-long line required a multi-node distributed Passenger Information Display System (PIDS) to display live train information, synchronised PA/PIDS messages, images and logos, safety messages and billable advertising. This was also required to integrate with the Public Address Voice Alarm (PAVA) equipment, so that screens located on the station platforms would display emergency information and wayfinding in the event of an emergency.
ASL provided VIPEDIA-12 and V2000 PAVA amplification and routing, together with our iVENCS Control System for PIDS, with intuitive user displays that allow complete control at multiple workstations across the operational control centres and each station. Multiple server redundancy ensures peace of mind whilst each workstation also includes its own local server, so that each station’s passenger information displays can continue to operate even if the line’s IP network fails.
