Digital Frames in Airports The company operates a network of digital frames, strategically placed in the areas of airports, such as departure halls, terminals and arrival halls, where most of the air travelers congregate and spend significant amounts of time waiting. The company’s digital frames are high-definition liquid crystal display (LCD) screens that change digital picture displays approximately every 6 or 12 seconds, with certain exceptions of 5 to 10 seconds in certain large airports. The company’s digital frames include standalone digital frames and mega-size LEDs. Standalone digital frames display advertisements on vertical or horizontal display panels ranging in size from 52 to 108 inches. The company also owns and operates digital frames of a larger size, up to 108 inches and 106 inches, in the airports of Beijing and Haikou, respectively.

There are approximately 10 to 280 on an airplane. The company’s airplane display programs are played once for approximately 45 minutes to an hour per flight. Approximately 4.5 to 15 minutes of each program consist of advertising content provided to the company by its advertisers and the rest of the program consists of non-advertising content. The non-advertising content on these planes includes travel shows, documentaries, sports and other content similar to that shown on its airport programs.
