Helsinki Goal for ComQi Partner

Helsinki’s Hartwall Arena is one of the most active and versatile arenas in Europe.

A modernization program that included 240 new displays located around the facility, recently raised the level of fan experience, something than many Jokerit ice hockey fans will appreciate for their KHL (Kontinental Hockey League) games.

Managed by ComQi partner iConnect, the system uses the EnGage platform along with 60 ComQi media players to drive all the displays, which include several video walls, screens located in the bars, walkways and hospitality suites. Read more...

From Large to Little: Pushing Digital Signage Boundaries

Take two on the hottest trends in digital signage—4K and video walls—put them together and you’ve got ONELAN’s solution that combines a 4K player with a video wall solution.

Their simple, cost effective communication solution, designed to create a high impact visual experience with Ultra High 4K definition, will be on show at their stand at ISE 2015.

To create a video wall using the ONELAN Net-Top-Box (NTB), there are two approaches.  A first approach uses the displays’ built in loop-through capability and a second approach uses a single 4K NTB with a video wall controller from their partner Datapath.

Using the ONELAN 4K player and the Datapath video wall controller, you can break away from the traditional video wall layout. ONELAN says “…your imagination is the only limit with ever more creative video wall arrangements.” And the market for more creative video wall arrangements certainly is growing.

 Yes, Electronic Paper for Digital Signage

How about a Build-Your-Own-Sign using electronic paper technology?

Luka Birsa, Visionect CTO, argues “Electronic paper’s high-readability and low power consumption make it ideal not only for e-books, but also for use in digital signs – which can now come in any size and are no longer limited to the dimensions of electronic paper displays available on the market. New hardware and software from Visionect make it possible to build a custom digital sign by combining multiple EPDs or electronic paper displays into larger screens for the first time, ushering in a new era of digital signage.”

The new Visionect Platform enable companies to develop their own electronic paper digital signage products and solutions that are custom-tailored to their exact needs.

Scala Goes to London for 2014 Conference

On a rare glorious spring morning Scala held its 2014 Conference, this time at the Timber Lodge in the recently opened Olympic Park as part of London Digital Signage Week.

A smaller scale event from last year's conference, proceedings were opened by Scala CEO Tom Nix with a straight to the point keynote on the digital signage industry's top vertical-- retail. According to Scala retail is top signage driver, taking over 45% share of a "great" 2013.

As Nix puts it, digital signage not only allows retailers to emulate the Amazon online experience within brick-and-mortar outlets, it also provides a "tsunami" of valuable data.

What to do with such data? Partners use it to build a strong ROI case for maximized, optimized campaigns, of course. In other words, "omnichannel makes money."

World's Largest Free-Standing Video Wall Totem

Messe Düsseldorf's north entrance hall now features “the world's largest free-standing video wall totem” with a height of almost seven metres. The digital installation replaces printed posters that once hung in the same place.

The fairgrounds turned to an industrial computer integrator with a digital signage division (InoNet Computer GmbH) for design and construction of the video wall which consists of 24 NEC 46'' screens.

The structural integrity of the wall presented quite a challenge: at a height of 6.80m, the stability of the construction is critical. Proper ventilation also came under careful consideration to keep the screens from overheating under constant operation. Driving the installation is a single InoNet Magnius video wall controller, which can daisy chain up to 144 screens. Read more...
