I am looking at getting a monitor to place in my office to display projects we have going on, due dates, and other columns of information. Basically, I am wondering how the airports have their arrival and departure schedules displayed on the plasma monitors throughout the airport with live updates. I only need one monitor, so it is not necessary to link multiple ones but I want the same type format where I can update and display on the screen throughout the day. Any thoughts or know where I can research this process more? Thanks

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

depending on what type of helpdesk system you are using, (database related or not), you could build a webpage that pulls the data from the database and just have it auto-refresh at whatever interval you wish. You could have it change the background color to red for items that are critical, etc.

You could accomplish this with a second monitor on your PC or have a smaller, less powerful PC, witha single monitor hooked up to it to display the information. It really is just as simple as a monitor to display what ever application’s data you wish to display, a web page like mentioned before would be one, but you could display several applications’ data on the screen as well, like a MS project file, excel spreadsheet and/or a powerpoint presentation.

Airport systems are basically large versions of what has already been described. Somewhere in the depth of the airport is a bank of computers with software running on this which displays the flight information on the screen. They then have TV out cards hooked up to them which then send the video signal to a Coax cable which is run throughout the airport just like the TVs in your house. Each TV in the airport is then tuned to a specific channel. Every once and a while when I’m at the airport I’ll see a good old blue screen of death on the airport monitor showing exactly what it’s running.
