First test of a new RGB LED display for a train in Canada. The display has 16 x 144 high power RGB LED’s to make sure it is readable in bright sunlight. The hardware uses a iMX6 CPU and runs a custom Linux OS. Content is send to to display via Ethernet using client specified rail/public transport network protocols.
Since it is a multiplex display it is rather difficult to film because the update rate is different from the camera framerate so it looks like it is flickering. Also because the LED’s are so bright the camera has problem finding the right exposure.
