New York - A special Tennis Edition of Time Warner Cable’s interactive “App Station” was created by digital merchandising agency, Reality Interactive, to support Time Warner Cable’s sponsorship of the US Open.

The Tennis Edition of the App Station was designed in the same style as the version in TWC’s retail locations. The event version shows content that is relevant for the event. It features tennis-specific imagery, and displays a US Open news feed. The App Station features a massive 11-foot touch-screen display.

On the screen, visitors can explore TWC products through four simulated demos of TWC’s mobile apps; TWC TV®, TWC WiFi® Finder, My TWC® and IntelligentHome. These simulated demos were created for TWC by Reality Interactive to inspire customers by showing the benefits of TWC’s apps in the context of their own lives.

Automated, dynamic content now freely provided to digital signage subscribers

PITTSBURGH, PA--(Marketwired) - Industry Weapon, experts in simplifying and advancing the applications of digital signage, now provide a complementary Content Program to subscribers who lack the time to create new content for their digital screens on a day-to-day basis. The program pushes fresh media, relevant to their industry, to the signage each day.

"The reason why most digital signage deployments fail is because the content doesn't change enough. Once the signs become boring, the entire infrastructure is a lost cause. We provide our clients with a program that keeps their signage new and exciting without them having to do anything." -David Wible, CEO, Industry Weapon

The Content Program begins on a simple dashboard platform, where users type their messages into templates designed for their specific industries. Afterward, the dashboard automates the input into aesthetically pleasing slides, complete with the users' branding and colors. These slides change appearance three times a day on an eight-day schedule, totaling in 192 different slides.

Most viewers will be primarily interested in what Industry Weapon deems "focus content." Focus content is made up of information like important announcements, company spotlights, performance metrics, and executive messaging. This content is programed to utilize the majority of the screen.

After focus content is "anchor content:" media displayed for the purpose of engaging broader audiences. Industry Weapon's anchor content consists of several elements, including: date, time, weather, social media, news feeds, and fun facts. Users choose up to eight categories per vertical.

As an added bonus, the digital media company incorporates high-quality video content onto their subscribers' signage. Slides are accompanied with a partial screen video or a motion graphic. The program changes the videos three times per day, and alternates the color and animation of the motion graphic each day for eight days.

Industry Weapon's content program guarantees diversified content so that viewers never feel that they are seeing the same messages twice. The program keeps audiences engaged with eight categories updating three times each day on an eight-day schedule.

Industry Weapon (www.industryweapon.com), a digital media company, specializes in simplifying and advancing the applications of digital signage. The SaaS solution enables subscribers to design, schedule, and publish multimedia content and integrated data sources to screens, kiosks, tablets and mobile devices. Industry Weapon's solution is suited for all industries and includes 24/7 free training and support along with design and creative services.

Sheehan Brothers Vending, a pioneer in automated food-service merchandising, has announced its selection of Mvix digital signage systems for its new, innovative service called Micromarkets (aka Contemporary Cafes).

Sterling, VA (PRWEB) - Sheehan Brothers Vending, a pioneer in automated food-service merchandising has announced its selection of Mvix digital signage systems for its new, innovative service called Micromarkets (aka Contemporary Cafes). As a part of this service, Sheehan will equip these on-site markets with state-of-the art, cloud-based digital menu boards provided by Mvix.

Founded in 1956, Sheehan Brothers Vending is a family-owned, full line vending service that operates vending machines, commissaries, and cafes in businesses, schools, hospitals, government offices, recreation facilities, factory floors, and executive board rooms. With the inception of its new service called Micromarkets, Sheehan Brothers Vending is establishing small, convenience store like open markets where customers can make purchases using a self-checkout kiosk at offices and work-sites. These custom-designed, unattended, 24/7 micro convenience stores carry several hundred fresh-food items for office employees and the workforce.

“We decided to add the media boards and your software into our markets because we wanted to promote our specials we run in the market each week to our customers. Instead of printing out signs for each market every week that no one would really look at we decided we wanted to go digital. It falls right in line with what the contemporary cafes are all about. It gave our cafes a more contemporary look and saved us time and money printing out and posting signage,” said Patrick Sheehan, Need Title here at Sheehan Vending.

As a part of this new service, Mvix’s digital signage systems equipped with large display screens are being installed in these contemporary cafes to display menu information, fun facts, weather and other trivia. “We are delighted to be a part of this new venture,” said A. Jay, Director of Business Relations at Mvix. “Sheehan Brothers Vending is a reputed name and an established institution in the vending industry. We are humbled to hear this news.”

“We compared Mvix with some other digital signage solutions and really no one else had what we were looking for that could beat the price,” remarked Patrick. The digital signage systems were evaluated at the corporate warehouse for multiple weeks before this decision was made. “We are very satisfied with the overall solution and found it to be very user-friendly. The technical support has been remarkable and quick. The system has been really great so far and has exceeded all our expectations,” commented Patrick.

Mvix, based in Sterling, Virginia, was founded in 2005 and has become one of the industry leaders in the field of cloud-based digital signage and menu board solutions. With over 10000 clients in over 29 countries, Mvix has established itself as a dominant player in the affordable digital signage market. “Our digital signage systems are designed with stability, easy-of-use and affordability in mind and Sheehan’s project is an exemplar use of our platform,” stated A. Jay. “The affordable cost structure and intuitive, hassle-free content management system is the core of Mvix platform and our clients appreciate that.”

Merged entity to operate as Creative Realities; company now offers global retailers and brands the most innovative marketing technology solutions and services in the industry

NEW YORK and MINNEAPOLIS, /PRNewswire/ -- Creative Realities, LLC ("Creative Realities") and Wireless Ronin Technologies, Inc. (OTCQB: RNIN) ("Wireless Ronin") announced the successful completion of their merger, resulting in one of the largest and most innovative marketing technology solutions companies in the world.

Under the terms of the agreement and as previously announced, Creative Realities merged into a subsidiary of Wireless Ronin, with the sole equity holder of Creative Realities (an affiliate of Pegasus Capital Advisors), receiving approximately 59.2% of the outstanding shares of Wireless Ronin common stock, calculated on a modified fully-diluted basis, including the shares of common stock issued in connection with Wireless Ronin's merger with Broadcast International, Inc. that closed on August 1, 2014. In the transaction, Creative Realities' sole equity holder also received warrants to acquire an additional 1.5% of Wireless Ronin's common stock.  The combined companies are now operating under the Creative Realities brand name and will trade on the OTCQB under the ticker symbol RNIN.

Paul Price, previously Chief Executive Officer ("CEO") of Creative Realities has been named CEO of the combined company and will also serve as a director.  Scott Koller, previously CEO of Wireless Ronin has been named President of the combined company, and John Walpuck, previously Chief Financial Officer ("CFO") of Wireless Ronin has been named Chief Operating Officer and CFO of the combined company.  The combined company will be headquartered in New York, NY with operational facilities in Fairfield, NJ, Minneapolis, MN, Salt Lake City, UT, and Windsor, Ontario.

Commenting on the merger, Paul Price stated, "We are very excited to have completed this merger and look forward to providing our customers, whether retailers, venue operators or brands, with the latest technologies to create better shopping experiences.  Collectively, with Wireless Ronin's cloud-based content management platform, Broadcast International's award-winning Managed Media Services platform and Creative Realities' full service approach, we now offer customers a one-stop, single source solution.  We truly believe that through the combination of our resources which include the latest innovations in software, display, sensor and mobile technologies, we are better positioned to deliver the most effective marketing technology programs to help improve the in-store engagement of customers, increase customer loyalty and drive increased sales."

Since its inception, Creative Realities has partnered with some of the world's most recognized retailers, venues and brands.  Creative Realities provides a host of marketing technology solutions across multiple verticals, including beauty, fashion, consumer packaged goods, digital place-based media networks, electronics, eyewear, financial services, health and wellness, and hospitality.  Through the combination of the three companies, Creative Realities counts among its customers Adidas, Adspace, Aramark, Calvin Klein, Caterpillar, Chrysler, KFC, Macy's, Nestle, Rite Aid, Sunglass Hut, and many more.

Price continued, "We see significant growth opportunities for our company both near- and long-term, and with both existing and new global customers.  Companies no longer need to work with multiple vendors as we can provide them with a full-service offering that begins in the planning and design stage and runs all the way through in-store implementation.  Furthermore, we have the tools and wherewithal to help retailers and brands effectively manage their programs upon roll-out, while quickly adapting to consumer preferences and any changes in their strategies.  The seniority of our management team and their collective experiences across marketing categories and technologies represent a truly unique combination of talents to help retailers and brands leverage marketing technology."

Turnkey digital signage offering provides a platform to engage customers through customized messages and promotions that increase sales and improve loyalty

RIDGEFIELD PARK, NJ – Samsung Electronics America, Inc. introduced Samsung Smart Signage TV (SSTV), an all-in-one digital signage solution designed for small, single-location business owners. Providing everything a small storefront owner needs to get up and running with digital signage, Samsung SSTV combines the functionality of a TV with built-in content management software for creating personalized promotional content to increase sales and improve customer loyalty and retention.

“Samsung understands the unique challenges small business owners face when it comes to selecting and implementing technology, and we built this product to address the market need for a cost-effective, easy-to-manage, professional-grade solution that is better suited for these environments than the consumer solutions that many small business owners are using,” said Tod Pike, senior vice president at Samsung’s Enterprise Business Division. “With Samsung Smart Signage TV, we’re giving small business owners the power to enhance their customer communications, enabling them to create more personalized content to drive conversations that extend long after a customer leaves the store to keep them coming back.”

Available in 40- and 48-inch models, Samsung SSTV provides a complete platform for displaying digital content about new promotions and daily specials, sharing educational information about products and services, and broadcasting live TV for on-premise entertainment. Business owners can wirelessly connect to the TV from their laptop, tablet or mobile device to instantly publish and update content, or load new content using a USB drive. SSTV is ideal for use in small, single-location storefronts or service providers such as pizzerias, grocers, salons, drycleaners, dental clinics and more.

Key features include:

  •     Professional-grade LED-lit LCD display designed for up to 16/7 usage to align with standard business hours
  •     Included wall-mount, stand and quick start guide to get signage up and running in hours
  •     MagicInfo Express, a built-in content management software that shop owners can use to easily update customers with information on discounts, store hours, special events and other promotional information
  •     MagicInfo Mobile, which allows businesses to make quick updates or upload photos to promotional materials directly from their Android or iOS mobile device using an app
  •     More than 200 free templates to create personalized signage designs or split-screen TV content
  •     Support for displays mounted in portrait or landscape mode
  •     Commercial grade 3-year warranty, with dedicated service and support

“We see opportunity for Samsung’s new Smart Signage TV among customers who have traditionally purchased consumer solutions for their business needs,” said Ben Davis, display market analyst at Futuresource Consulting. “It will be interesting to see the response especially in the small business market as this has been an area underserved, but discussed for a long time. An out-of-the-box solution is very interesting and one that small businesses could easily leverage to differentiate from their competitors and grow.”

This offering further builds out Samsung’s suite of digital signage solutions, which includes the Samsung Smart Signage Platform (SSP) for larger organizations. Compatible with Samsung’s latest lineup of commercial displays, SSP features a system-on-a-chip that provides support for advanced signage applications, including touch and video wall configurations, all without the need for an external media player or PC.

Samsung SSTV will be available at an MSRP of $749 for the 40-inch model and $999 for the 48-inch model through major club and electronics retailers, as well as select reseller partners.

Digital signage provides communication solution for schools

PITTSBURGH, PA--(Marketwired) - Industry Weapon, experts in simplifying and advancing the applications of digital signage, offers a communication solution for K-12 campuses, mitigating areas where campuses lack fast, effective message broadcasting.

With Industry Weapon's solution, schools create campaigns to communicate dynamic content to a larger audience than any previous form of messaging. From announcements to fun facts, students and faculty alike are more inclined to watch and retain information from the digital signs. Campuses can integrate directory and wayfinding applications for new students and visitors that need directions around the campus. Closed circuit television content can be transmitted onto the screens as well to broadcast live sports and school events.

"Our solution greatly remedies communication issues by allowing administrators to transmit content quickly and efficiently across the entire district. From safety announcements that alert the district in emergency situations, to content approval processes that allow students to create messages under supervision, we've designed numerous applications with K-12 purposes in mind."
- David Wible, CEO, Industry Weapon

K-12 institutions do not have their own Clery Act, which requires all colleges and universities to disclose information about crimes committed on or near campuses, Industry Weapon goes a step further for K-12 clients by providing the Alert Integration. This integration connects with software such as E2Campus, Simplex Grinnell, and Blackboard for immediate emergency messaging notifications. In the event of a safety breach, inclimate weather, fire, etc., the digital signage displays an emergency warning until the emergency has passed.

The digital media company also responds to the importance of test scores. For test-takers, digital signage enhances the standardized testing process by regularly providing them with simple preparation tips, broadcasting reminders of important test dates and times, and showcasing practice questions to familiarize students with the content. By creating campaigns that run during test days, students who are not being tested are informed of when to stay quiet in the hallways.

"Our digital signage, provided by Industry Weapon, has changed the face of communication across our campus. Students know best how to capture the attention of their peers, so having them create the messages insures the message will be watched. Whether the message is about an upcoming dance, fund raiser, or sporting event we are certain to get the word out because of our signage."
- Mark Clark, English/Social Studies Teacher, Rialto Unified School District

Industry Weapon wants to aid in employing effective learning by providing a solution any district can implement. Situational content is able to be displayed on appropriate signs so gymnasium messaging does not have to be the same as cafeteria messaging. K-12 institutions require a special level of communication that can reach children and adults. Visual learning provided by digital signage is the answer.

About Industry Weapon

Industry Weapon (www.industryweapon.com), a digital media company, specializes in simplifying and advancing the applications of digital signage. The SaaS solution enables subscribers to design, schedule and publish multimedia content and integrated data sources to screens, kiosks, tablets and mobile devices. Industry Weapon's solution is suited for all industries and includes 24/7 free training and support along with design and creative services.
