Active wear retailer taps into shopper social media to join in on International Yoga Day

NEW YORK - ComQi's shopper engagement technology tapped into social media to connect a major active wear retailer's customers with a global celebration of yoga this past weekend.

Shoppers at the downtown flagship of the national retailer were asked to post messages and images during Sunday's International Yoga Day using their hashtag. Curated Tweets and Instagram posts were then displayed on ComQi-powered screens in the store through the day.

"A lot of retailers don't really think about the value of live content, and this is a great example of how technology can easily enable a retail brand to share an interesting experience with its customers, by asking for and reflecting their thoughts and photos they've taken," says Stuart Armstrong, Chief Revenue Officer ComQi.

Social media visualizations in retail environments - run through moderation and approval tools - are a powerful way to connect retail brands and their customers, particularly when the "conversation" is around a health and lifestyle pursuit like yoga, says Armstrong.

Live-streaming video is also emerging as an in-store tool to connect with shoppers. Several factors are combining these days to make live-streaming video much more easily planned and executed:

  •     The stable, high-speed connections needed for quality video streaming are now commonplace, affordable and easily arranged;
  •     High-priced cameras, teams and trucks can be replaced by low-cost but HD quality IP-connected cameras;
  •     Content management and video compression software make it easy to set-up, run and deliver quality streams to remote screens.

"We see a lot of potential for live video as a new part of the retail experience," says Armstrong, "primarily for shoppers but also for those people who spend their time thinking about retail operations."

Scheduled live-streams make it possible, as an example, for authors to do book talks with fans at dozens, hundreds or 1,000s of stores. An intimate concert by a pop star could be exclusively viewed, only at stores, by invited customers of a retail sponsor. The Paris runway show of a hot new designer could run on screens in shops back in the US, for all shoppers or as a loyalty perk.

Armstrong says experiences at places like theme parks and large shopping malls could be elevated simply by using high-quality live cameras to show what's happening in areas too far away to see. If theme park visitors could see lines are heavy for one attraction, and lighter for another, that would inevitably influence visitor traffic and help "load-balance" attraction line-ups.

Live streaming can also be used by retailers and other businesses as powerful communications and training tools. With video conferencing now commonplace in businesses, it's now easy for content management systems such as ComQi EnGage to schedule an Internet-based video feed and run it before and after store-hours.

That could be anything from a motivational speech to store staff from the CEO, says Armstrong, to product knowledge and training sessions from manufacturers or even celebrities associated with a brand or clothing line.

Armstrong notes that ComQi's EnGage platform is already optimized for social media and for scheduled, full-time or even triggered video streams. "It might be a big task for some platforms, but with our system design all we really need are the details on that live stream, and we're ready to turn it on and give shoppers engaging and, perhaps unexpectedly great, in-store experiences."

By Paul Shwabe

There appears to be a shrinking separation between architectural design, building structural engineering and construction material practices. The classic delineation between these areas of expertise within the building industry is necessitating more collaboration as a result to pursue a “high-performance building” or seeking the bulls-eye target of a zero net-energy environmental design.

Each of these practices, as well as facility and operations management, are rapidly focusing on the use of more smart embedded technology within the building design, as well as interior products for real-time metric feedback, modeling and simulation of data, to evaluate the actual energy-related performance. This was very evident during the National Facilities Management and Technology Conference (NFMT) held June 2-3 in Ft. Worth, Texas. The event included sponsored workshops, conference sessions and exhibitors that featured topics of interest for facility professionals responsible for the management, operations, maintenance, renovation and construction of non-residential buildings.

Real Time Data

The theme of this year's NFMT was "Transform Your Building" and key takeaways included trends and technolgoies that define a high-performance building. As I was walking the expo, it hit me that the ability for automation, improved control, data collection and tracking all still remain stored and displayed from the perspective of the native vendor’s desktop application (i.e., electrical, HVAC, water). While these applications provide the necessary analysis and tools to measure, they limit facility and operations management from a total view.

What is needed is a single unifying intelligent visual dashboard to aggregate all the critical data combined and analyzed, which really displays a building performance so the facility can achieve as a fully optimized high-performance building. Such a solution would need to not only consider building sensor equipment, but extend to exterior environmental climate data as well as occupant behavior and usage.

RMG Networks has historical and real-time data collection aggregators that provide the real-time metrics and alerts with aggregated reporting from multiple source in a single easy to visualize dashboards displayed on mobile, desktop and large format displays. These tools are ideal for command and control rooms where critical decisions are made.  

About RMG Networks

RMG Networks is a global provider of intelligent visual solutions that drive business.

Its RMG Media Networks business unit engages elusive audience segments with relevant content and advertising delivered through digital place-based networks, including the largest digital airline media network with a monthly audience of more than 35 million passengers and a mall media network reaching more than 62 million monthly viewers in 161 shopping malls across the United States.

The VIA PAD instant−present USB device, VIA Site Management and VIA v1.7 Software Upgrade strengthen Kramer's collaboration offering

Kramer announced three new, important VIA releases: VIA PAD, an instant−present USB touch device; VIA Site Management, an IT software solution for VIA administrators; and powerful collaboration software enhancements for VIA Collage and VIA Connect PRO.

“We are extremely excited to build on the market splash we’ve made in the past year with our VIA wireless collaboration solutions,” said Neta Lempert, VP Digital Business Development at Kramer. “With this new release we believe VIA will continue to lead the way in the collaboration space,” he added.

VIA Collage is Kramer’s award−winning wireless BYOD meeting solution for TRUE−Collaboration™ in any size meeting space. VIA Connect PRO offers wireless BYOD solutions for True−Collaboration in mid−sized meeting rooms and huddle spaces.

And now, VIA Site Management (VSM) has been added to the VIA family of solutions. VIA Site Management is an IT software solution that lets administrators view and manage multiple VIA rooms within the same network. Administrators can easily and remotely monitor each device, configure and manage software updates, check each device’s status, perform resets, and more.

“VIA Site Management brings together the whole picture in a very user−friendly way and keeps everything running smoothly,” said Lempert.

VIA PAD, Kramer’s new external USB touch device for Mac and PC lets VIA Collage and VIA Connect PRO users present on the main display with a touch of a finger. Users can also present content by pressing “Step−in” inside the VIA app.

Kramer’s VIA v1.7 software update introduces 4K−UHD output for VIA Collage. VIA Collage users can present 4K−UHD content with compatible 4K−UHD displays.

The latest release brings HTML5 enhancements and content deployment improvements to the Coca Cola Lounge at CineEurope 2015

Barcelona, Spain – YCD Multimedia, the leading global provider of advanced digital signage software solutions, announces the release of version 3.7.1 of its popular C-nario Digital Signage Suite to the European and Asian markets. The latest release brings key improvements in its support of HTML5 and other important bug fixes.

Originally introduced in version 3.7, the HTML5 item allowed users to display and run HTML5 content on the C-nario Digital Signage Suite Platform. The Item supported both widgets and online URLs, with built-in authentication for secure content, and WebKit compliance for excellent compatibility.

Version 3.7.1 brings two important new features for HTML5 content:

  •     Device control API – allowing HTML5 content to communicate with content and elements (“devices”) in the C-nario system, opening up opportunities for localization of content, data links to / from connected devices, multi-player gaming, high resolution interactives and more.
  •     HTML5 Failover & Recovery provides graceful handling of errors or issues resulting from intermittent internet connections. During playback, if an error in a user-provided URL is detected the system will automatically “fail over” to backup URL or stored content. Once the monitored URL no longer returns an error, the system can automatically “recover” to the original URL.

Additional enhancements include:

  1.     Faster content distribution – Thanks to a revamped process and data optimization, version 3.7.1 shortens deployment times for complex content by as much as 60% compared with 3.7. Furthermore, background processing ensures users can continue working within the system immediately after initiating a content transfer.
  2.     Improved Sequence (timeline) nesting makes it simpler to create complex synchronized sequences.
  3.     4K Support – support for content playback and distribution to 4K capable displays.

C-nario Digital Signage Suite version 3.7.1 is now available in new or upgrade licenses. The new version will be powering all the display elements at the Coca Cola Lounge for the second year at CineEurope 2015. The lounge will focus on showcasing how creative digital signage can be used within cinemas to create immersive and interactive experiences that increase not only guest engagement but also revenue.
