The Realities – All airline passengers and their baggage must be checked

thoroughly, resulting in noisy checkpoints with long lines. Also, federal
+1.502.267.9070 fax
regulations require that airports make periodic checkpoint procedure
announcements that passengers must be able to hear and see.
The Challenge – To find a dependable solution for informing passengers
at the checkpoint how to prepare their carry-on items to speed-up security inspection.
The Solution – IED’s Security Checkpoint Communication System. This product allows the
500ACS Announcement Control System ® to integrate synchronized text messages with
visual displays, vertically designed for the security checkpoint process. The detailed
graphical displays present specific instructions to the passengers to prepare them for the
inspection process. As passengers view the visual displays, the 500ACS Announcement
Control System ® distributes synchronized voice announcements clearly explaining the
instructions for the passengers. Interspersed with the graphical presentation
are large font scrolling text messages that reiterate the instructions in a
format compliant with ADA regulations.
