Live demonstrations of cutting-edge technologies and services relating to the passenger and baggage processing sector are key to understanding the latest developments in the field. Future Travel Experience Asia 2013 hosts the largest exhibition of passenger-focused technologies and solutions ever staged in Asia.

In the first part of our Exhibition Preview, we round-up what you can expect to see from Damarel, Desko, ICM Airport Technics, IER, Custom Engineering and PrehKeyTec.

Damarel (Exhibition Booth #10)

Damarel (Exhibition Booth #10)

Damarel will be showing the latest in passenger and ground handling software, including the brand new EMBARKmobile – a truly portable solution for airline passenger gate boarding. Designed for the latest generation of tablets, smartphones and PDAs, EMBARKmobile supports the devices you want to use, where you want to use them.

Also of interest will be both the Vanguard (security system) and Embark (e-gate compatible boarding), now supporting self-service operations. Our ever popular, low-cost L-DCS and FiNDnet Suite will also be on show.

With worldwide installations, Damarel is continuing to deliver class-leading, cost-effective solutions to improve passenger throughput, increase efficiency and reduce costs.

DESKO (Exhibition Booth #30)

DESKO (Exhibition Booth #30)

DESKO has been designing and manufacturing hardware and software solutions for automated data entry for over 20 years. DESKO has your ideal solution within the fields of Passport & ID Capture, Paperless Transactions & Electronic Documents.

This year we will show our new BGR 504 Pro which is based on the existing and well established DESKO GRSK 504 gate reader series. The new BGR comes in the same sized envelope and provides at a minimum serial or USB connections. It is therefore completely plug and play with existing installations both from a mechanical and an interfacing point of view.

Like its well-proven predecessor, the DESKO BGR 504 Pro is based on a robust flatbed scan technology for the highest, super-fast barcode read rates. Because of its barrier-free flatbed design the BRG 504 Pro allows for user-friendly mobile boarding pass reading from smart phones and tablets.

A large colour LCD display for text and picture, multicolour LEDs for clear visual feedback and an adjustable volume control (integrated buzzer and/or external buzzer) for acoustic feedback make the BGR 504 Pro the ideal device for fast and trouble-free boarding processes.

DESKO’s smart device approach and optional features like NFC boarding guarantee a future-proof infrastructure and protect your investment.

Come see us and find out more about the new BGR 504 Pro at Booth 30!
