There are plans to establish live port calls on huge interactive screens for visitors coming to Posidonia 2018.
It is a global event held in collaboration between global ship tracking intelligence company MarineTraffic and the event organisers.
The event is being held in the main thoroughfare between Halls 2 & 3, the screens will display live port calls in the style of an airport departures board, and visitors will be able to interact via control consoles to show vessels’ live positions by flag or by vessel type.
Interactive screens setup
A set of four 110 inch 4K resolution LCD screens have been setup to show video footage taken from across Posidonia over its five days, as well as display showing the international range of companies, products and services present at the show on a global map.
MarineTraffic head of engineering, Savvas Kampouridis said, “We’re really excited about this innovative installation – we hope it will be a real talking point for the visitors. We’re so pleased to be making such a big splash at our first ever Posidonia.”
Posidonia Exhibitions executive director Theodore Vokos said, “Posidonia has always been a strong supporter of new technology and new developments being showcased on the exhibition floor,” commented. “With over 80 IT companies present, this year’s Posidonia is very much about shipping embracing the digital revolution”.
