Flight information is essential in the hospitality and airport industries and Noventri has made digital flight information a simple solution with the Noventri Eco-Flight Board. The Eco-Flight Board is a digital signage flight information board that provides guests and travelers with updates of departure times, delays and cancellations with no required interaction for users or viewers.
Noventri Eco-Flight Board is a highly stable information board and is not a PC-based system. It is made up of an HD flat-screen with the new Noventri Eco-Series SF-200 digital signage player mounted to the back and requires only an Internet connection to provide dynamic updates of airport flight information. Eco-Flight Boards are used in airports in an array of boards to show current flight information for various
Flight cancellations and delays may seem like an inconvenience, but guests and hotels both benefit by knowing about them in advance with Eco-Flight Boards. Guests can book additional nights at the hotel once they realize their flight has been cancelled or take in a meal at the hotel restaurant if flights are delayed, thus avoiding wait time at the airport. While hotels benefit from knowing cancellation and delays in advance because they can schedule extra rotations of shuttle service for stranded travelers and they can ramp up staff for sudden weather changes and cancellations.
Optional features for the Eco-Flight Board include:
- Available Branding – so that the Eco-Flight Board reflects the look and feel of the hotel.
- Installation Services – although installation is simply hanging a screen and connecting it to the Internet, Noventri will do all the work for you, if needed.
- Local Weather – providing added information for viewers.
- In-Room Channel – a convenience for guests to check flight statuses without leaving the room.
- Three-Year Extended Warranty
“Having flight information at their fingertips for hotel guests provides a great opportunity for hotels,” says David Linetsky, President of Noventri. “This allows guests to reschedule flights and wait out delays without leaving the hotel.”

“I’m remodeling the kids’ room. May I get a gallon of lead-based paint, please?”
Before 1978, lead-based paint was deemed to be good practice and a great value. Now, in the US, a company can be fined and possibly face criminal charges for failure to comply with regulations regarding removal and disclosure of lead-based paint.
Why? Because we are now aware of the unintended, yet harmful health effects. Today, how would you react if you overheard someone asking the above question? They must be joking, or have no concern for the well-being of their children.
In like manner, it has become standard in the digital signage industry to promote video as the ultimate medium for reaching customers. Conventional “wisdom” says it’s good practice and gets the best value out of your signage. This is because many choose to ignore the harmful side effects video has upon customers.
For example, imagine yourself in a store. You notice a TV suspended from the ceiling near the checkout area. It’s playing a video. What instantly comes to mind?
“Hey, there is going to be some interesting information I really need to know.”
Nope. Most likely it’s, “Oh no! It’s a commercial.” You make the association between a TV showing video and being sold to. You quickly turn away. That’s what customers do.
At Noventri, we embrace the universal truth that people hate watching commercials and will avoid them at every opportunity. How could we, in good conscience, tout the effectiveness of video in digital signage applications? We cannot. We do not. It is a source of pride to stand up for the truth.
Despite these facts, the geeks and crooks of the digital signage industry continue to push “lead paint” as best practice.
“You must have video to have great signage!”
Or “Using lead makes for superior paints!”
A new coat of paint does brighten a room, makes it feel warm, clean, and inviting. Digital signage has the same effect. Isn’t everyone much better off without the lead and video?
Digital Signage and Reforestation – An Unlikely Partnership Plays Key Role in the Reforestation of Florida State Forest
The 2009 Florida wildfires left their mark on forests, but Noventri Digital Signage played a key role in assisting in the reforestation of the land through a partnership with the Arbor Day Foundation and purchases of the SF-100e digital signage player from Noventri.
Smithsburg, Maryland, August 9, 2010 – As part of the release of the Eco-Series SF-100e digital signage player, a green, eco-friendly technology, Noventri agreed to plant a tree for each player purchased. Recent purchases have resulted in the completion of replanting trees in the John M. Bethea State Forest in Sanderson, Florida.
The John M. Bethea State Forest is a 37,736-acre state forest that establishes a continuous wildlife corridor between Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge and the Osceola National Forest.
The state forest recently suffered catastrophic wildfires, which impacted over 80% of its trees. Reforestation efforts were recently completed through The Florida Division of Forestry and the Arbor Day Foundation with 571,000 slash and longleaf pine seedlings planted on 840 acres of land. Noventri donations went directly toward the reforestation of this forest.
“Noventri is proud to have had a part in the preservation of this essential land,” says Andrew Hoffman, VP of Noventri. “We want to thank our clients, since it was their purchases that allowed for our donations to find their way into this National forest.”
From early on, Noventri realized the need for technology to be eco-friendly, and has strived to maintain that stance with its recent release of an eco-friendly digital signage player.
The Eco-Series SF-100e digital signage player uses less than four watts. This is a substantial savings over using a standard computer to provide digital signage within buildings. The SF-100e also saves fossil fuel since it is manufactured within the United States where it is sold nationally. Planting a tree for each purchased player only makes it more eco-friendly.
Some of the recent clients whose purchases were responsible for the reforestation of the John M. Bethea State Forest include: Oxford Hotel, Aramark – Pennsylvania Convention Center, Massanutten Resorts, Dominion Post, Sign Solutions, Tect Aerospace, Marriott Inner Harbor, Morgan State University, Embassy Suites Hunt Valley, Tropicana Casino Resort, Ionics EMS, Vertical Systems, Missouri Athletic Club, Manheim Public Library, Otterbein United Brethren and Scranton School District.

Noventri exhibited along side of over one-hundred exhibitors on Monday, June 7th at the e-ventplex in Frederick, Maryland. Congressman Roscoe Bartlett hosted the “free community service event designed for homeowners, farmers and small business owners to discover practical ways that you can save money, use less energy and go green on any size budget.” Noventri’s booth showed several of their new Eco-Series SF-100e players in action, enlightening visitors that digital signage can, in fact, be green.
Noventri will be showcasing a green technology used for digital signage, digital reader boards for hotels and digital menu boards for restaurants at the Go Green Energy Conference hosted by Congressman Roscoe Bartlett.
Smithsburg, Maryland, May 26, 2010 – Noventri will be showcasing a green digital signage technology, the Eco-Series SF-100e, at the Go Green Energy Conference, on June 7, 2010 hosted by Congressman Roscoe Bartlett in conjunction with the Frederick County Office of Economic Development and the Frederick City Department of Economic Development.
The Go Green Conference will be held at The e-ventplex at the Frederick Fairgrounds located at 797 East Patrick Street, Frederick, Maryland and will run from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm. The conference will share ways to save money, use less energy, and assist businesses and individuals in transitioning to domestic, cleaner and renewable energy sources.
Noventri plans to demonstrate how the SF-100e digital signage player player can benefit local businesses and our environment. The SF-100e is a digital signage player designed specifically with the green aspect in mind. Besides its miniscule use of electricity, the product saves energy in the sense that it is manufactured locally, therefore eliminating the excessive use of fossil fuels for shipping.
The SF-100e is also RoHS compliant in that Noventri has avoided the use of dangerous substances commonly used in the manufacture of electronic equipment. Additionally, the small size of the player means less materials in the manufacturing process, which saves energy usage in the long run.
Noventri has also partnered with the Arbor Day Foundation to plant a tree for each player purchased, at which time, Noventri issues a certificate to the buyer acknowledging their participation in preserving our National Forests.
“The Eco-Series SF-100e is the perfect digital signage solution for small and large businesses that are energy conscious,” says Andrew Hoffman, Vice President of Noventri. “We strive to meet the objectives of our clients by offering a solution to communicate more efficiently while maintaining the green aspect. These objectives are attainable with the Eco-Series digital signage product line and this sets us apart from everyone else.”
