Changi Airport Group (Singapore) Pte Ltd (CAG) was formed on 16 June 2009. As the company managing Changi Airport, the world's most awarded airport, CAG undertakes key functions focusing on airport operations and management, air hub development, commercial activities and airport emergency services.
Over the past three decades, CAG has successfully established Changi Airport as the world's ‘Best Airport’. With more than 530 awards and accolades under its belt, Changi has come a long way since its humble beginnings in 1981, when Terminal 1 first opened.
The sixth busiest international airport today, Changi Airport is a major air hub in Asia. It handles over 55.4 million passenger movements per year. Presently, Changi Airport serves more than 100 airlines flying to over 330 cities in about 80 countries and territories worldwide. A flight takes off or lands at Changi Airport roughly once every 90 seconds.
When the Changi Airport Group issued their tender in late 2014, technology, price and ongoing support were the three main decision criteria. The goal was to replace four existing Barco video wall cubes and the controller with state-of-the-art equipment suitable for 24/7 operations. The new system needed to be compatible with most commercial televisions on a plug and play basis so that the signals can be directly output from PCs without the need of any servers. Pricing was also key.
In competition with five other system integrators, WEY Technology was awarded the video wall project in January 2015, and completed the system deployment only six weeks later in March 2015.
