Passengers using rail stations, including Langley Mill, will soon be able to use new high-tech customer information displays supplied.

New displays are being 
installed at stations operated by East Midlands Trains, including Langley Mill, Belper, 
Chesterfield and Derby.

The displays have been 
developed by Ashby-based 
Infotec Ltd.

Many of the stations use Infotec’s latest 
technological developments such as use of a GPRS connection to 
receive data and ‘text to speech’ (TTS) technology, which speaks the words as well as 
deliver them visually.

The displays consist of a mixture of LED ‘next train indicators’, a summary of 
departures, summary of 
arrivals and special notices displays in a range of sizes 
determined by the location and purpose which can make journeys that much easier.

Infotec’s text to speech technology is 
currently being used at more than 200 train stations in the UK to 
provide up to date train service 
information and security 
details as spoken words as well as written ones.

The work in Derbyshire is part of a contract awarded by Linbrooke Services Ltd which is seeing over 135 high-tech 
displays going to 25 stations in the region.
