Low cost, powerful digital signage media player is preloaded with StrandVision electronic signage software and adds several features…

MENOMONIE, Wis. – StrandVision LLC and Shuttle Computer Group, Inc. today announced a marketing agreement under which StrandVision will sell a new digital signage point-of-display digital media player. The device is based on Shuttle DS61 hardware that comes preloaded with, and is optimized to display, StrandVision’s patented digital signage content software.

Branded the StrandVision R360 Digital Media Player, the new player is a slim (6.5" x 7.5" x 1.8”), powerful x86-based Linux digital signage platform that offers the best quality, performance and connectivity to process high-quality digital media. When coupled with StrandVision’s Internet–based, hassle-free, digital signage software, it presents an unparalleled electronic signage package.

“At StrandVision our goal is to make digital signage setup and administration as quick and easy as possible and the R360 Media Player supports that goal,” commented Mike Strand, StrandVision founder and CEO. “Customers simply plug the device into their display and connect it to the Internet. It automatically selects one of the StrandVision digital signage host servers from the cloud, logs in using a preloaded username and password, initializes the connection and begins transmitting the user's digital signage content in seconds. Remotely managed digital signage doesn’t get any easier.”

The R360 Digital Media Player works seamlessly with StrandVision’s cloud digital signage servers and requires virtually no local administration. The fully configured player includes universal hardware to mount the unit directly onto a display or a wall mount, making installation quick and simple.

“Joining Shuttle’s innovative hardware with StrandVision’s software creates an easy-to-implement and manage package that will meet its customers’ needs,” said Marty Lash, director, sales and marketing, Shuttle Computer Group, Inc.

The R360 Digital Media Player is remotely updated and managed by the StrandVision patented digital signage software minimizing end-user housekeeping. Each customer unit constantly receives digital signage content updates from the StrandVision Web portal yet can run independently if there is an Internet interruption. The StrandVision player is capable of self-correcting most issues and automatically sends system performance updates and alerts to StrandVision and digital signage system administrators.

In addition to a more powerful processor and increased storage and memory, the new StrandVision player includes several upgrades and features. Wi-Fi® communication, previously a $79.99 option, is now included; a DVI™ video output has been added, along with the previously available HDMI® port for connection to digital displays; a VESA™ mounting kit, which can save up to $150.00 for specialized wall mounts.

Company's digital dignage media players deliver background content in real time at CNBC Studios

LOS GATOS, CA – BrightSign, LLC®, the market leader in digital signage players, today announced that it was selected by CNBC to complete an integral component of its recent studio overhaul. The global leader in business news recently undertook a project to increase the flexibility of content delivery to screens immediately behind the news desk, and BrightSign figured prominently in the solution that was installed in late 2013.

“We’ve been looking at ways to streamline how we select and display content on the screens that serve as a backdrop to our on-air anchors and reporters,” said Lou Visconti, production technology specialist, CNBC. “Once I saw BrightSign’s app in action, I was excited to harness the app’s functionality to help us better manage and display background content.”

The monitors located behind the anchor desks at CNBC were underutilized, typically relegated to looping background content that wasn’t nearly as timely as the network’s real-time news programming. BrightSign developed a custom web page for CNBC to fully utilize these background monitors by offering greater control of the content being fed to the monitors, and giving staff the ability to switch content sources in real time to better reflect breaking news as it develops.

“We’re proud of our association with CNBC, and we are pleased that our products played such a vital role in the network’s latest studio renovation,” said Jeff Hastings, BrightSign’s CEO. “CNBC required technology that could scale and adapt to their specific use case, with reliable hardware to withstand the rigors of the studio environment – we delivered on both accounts and we couldn’t be more pleased with the end result.”

For full details, images and additional information about this installation, please contact BrightSign for its recently published case study detailing its collaboration with CNBC.

— iTouch Zero Bezel Surface Acoustic Wave Technology improves player experience, reduces power consumption, and lowers costs with Elo quality and reliability backed by a 3 year warranty —

Milpitas, CA — Elo Touch Solutions (Elo), the original inventor of touchscreen technology, has announced a portfolio of touchscreen platforms for the global gaming industry based on Elo iTouch® surface acoustic wave technology. Employing energy-saving LED technology that reduces power consumption by fifty percent, the stylish zero-bezel, true flat clear glass touchscreens are available in a variety of sizes for gaming machine, loyalty programme kiosk, interactive directory map, sports book, hotel, restaurant and retail applications. The Elo 24-inch true flat touchscreens will be on display in booths 4019 and 4041 during the G2E Global Gaming Expo Las Vegas to be held 24-26 September 2013.

“Elo is the players’ choice for gaming touchscreens,” said Craig Witsoe, CEO Elo Touch Solutions. “Quality and reliability at a competitive price point is our reputation in the gaming industry as our interactive touch technology helps capture players’ attention with thin, bright, colourful HD touch displays big enough to be noticed in a casino environment.”

Breeze Digital Signage promises stellar performance and affordability by using innovative cloud technologies, leading the way for Keywest Technology to provide an enterprise-class digital signage system worldwide.

LENEXA, Kan.  –After four years of development and beta testing, Keywest Technology has officially launched Breeze Digital Signage, a hybrid cloud solution that reduces the expense and complexity of owning and managing digital signage systems.

“Keywest Technology is crossing a significant threshold with Breeze by offering a cloud-hosted digital signage solution that packs the features and functionality of our traditional hardware- and software-based digital signage solutions into a robust Web-based platform,” said Nick Nichols, president of Keywest Technology.

One of the major innovations of Breeze Digital Signage is its ability to scale from a pure software-as-a-service with zero hardware costs all the way to a “private cloud” solution that resides on local servers. This hybrid approach enables Keywest Technology to work hand-in-glove with business management’s operational needs, offering one of the most flexible systems on the market today.

Taking advantage of its hybrid flexibility, Breeze customers may choose a complete turnkey package, including hardware, custom creative programming, installation and a multitude of Keywest Technology services tailored to meet business objectives and goals. Conversely, Breeze may simply be used as a service (SaaS) where clients take on the creative design, hardware integration, server maintenance, system installation, etc. or, anything in-between.

Breeze provides operational ubiquity by being compatible with today’s most popular Web browsers, including Internet Explorer 10, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, with other HTML 5-capable browsers being added on future software updates. Breeze is also indifferent to computing platforms. It can be accessed and controlled from popular computer operating systems, e.g., Windows, Mac and Linux.

Breeze offers professional digital signage management tools via a Web browser, to build and schedule effective digital signage communications quickly and easily. Breeze provides administrative privileges, allowing organizations to delegate specific content management responsibilities while maintaining overall control of content.

Once administrators and users login to Breeze Dashboard via a secured browser connection, they have access to a variety of powerful built-in tools to manage and schedule digital signage content quickly and easily. They include: a media scheduler, a playlist preview window, a timeline, RSS creator, report creator, nested playlist editor, approval queue and an events tool.

In addition to these management tools, Breeze Digital Signage also includes a rich complement of widgets that make it easy to add clocks, calendars, weather data, Twitter feeds, RSS feeds, streaming video, Facebook content, Sales Force CRM events and QR codes to digital signage screens. Many more content-sourcing widgets will be added with system updates at no charge. Also, custom widgets are available that are tailored to individual needs of businesses who would like to display unique information on their digital signs.

Upgrading and scaling Breeze is easy for users as well. Since Breeze is fundamentally a software-as-a-service offering, users don’t need to buy new costly computers or software every time they need a new feature. Rather, Breeze users can order custom widgets to aggregate private or syndicated data to achieve communication goals. Likewise, users are not locked into a specific service plan and are free to modify, or upgrade, their bandwidth and storage usage as required to “right-size” the system to their needs.

“Everything about Breeze removes cost and complexity from digital signage,” said Nichols. “Giving users the chance to change bandwidth and storage requirements as needed is another example of how we have strived to eliminate unnecessary expense from digital signage.”

Keywest Technology gives Breeze users two alternatives to support media playback. The company is making available a thin, VESA wall mount player optimized for digital signage playback, which runs the reliable and secure Linux operating system. Breeze users can also choose a virtual media player that works with any display devices that support HTML-5.

Breeze is available immediately through authorized resellers, channel partners and Keywest Systems Group. For more information about Breeze Digital Signage, go to

TAIPEI, TAIWAN - CAYIN’s Digital Signage Solutions help Highlight Tech Corp. (Htc) to easily and instantly deliver its message between mainland China and Taiwan.

Htc took advantage of digital signage solutions for internal communication in multinational corporations. Through the use of digital signage, Htc can effectively integrate and convey its messages to its plants, and further stay in tuned with employees across Taiwan Straits, including Tainan and Hsinchu, and even in Shanghai, China.

To accomplish this project, CAYIN cooperated with one of its distributors, Nanshang Automation. After a series of evaluations conducted by a representative from Htc, CAYIN finally stood out from other candidates. There are three highlighted advantages of CAYIN’s system: diversified functions, high stability and flexibility, and a large collection of successful stories.

The placements included four web-based players in Tainan, one player in Hsinchu, and four players in Shanghai. It allows administrators the flexibility in defining the size and the location of each zone with different content creation in order to provide dynamic and informative content to its employees. Moreover, the deployment of a CMS-40 content management server at the Tainan headquarters also allows central control of all media players in different areas by the administrators. Furthermore, the implementation of xPost application software allows administrators to take advantage of the features of meetingPost, in that they can further remotely manage and arrange meeting schedules.

Htc believes that CAYIN’s system can provide the best solution for its internal communication. In mainland China, in particular, the network environment is relatively restricted and unstable. Moreover, CAYIN’s Digital Signage Solutions can be of great help for its future needs in the integration of manufacturing and storage information into an ERP system.

Please download the complete case study from CAYIN’s website:

Installation features dynamic menu boards, promotional boards and personalized music

MINNEAPOLIS – Wireless Ronin Technologies, Inc. (OTCQB: RNIN), a leading digital marketing technologies solutions provider, has entered into an agreement with MENAFEX, LLC (MENAFEX) to install its digital marketing solutions at a MOOYAH franchise location in Dubai. The installation was completed for the Ibn Battuta Mall location, one of four new country launches planned for MOOYAH in the Middle East before year-end. The Ibn Battuta Mall restaurant is the first of at least 10 restaurants to be owned and operated by UAE based AWGAL Investments, which has entered into a multi-unit development agreement with MENAFEX, MOOYAH’s international development partner for the UAE.

The unique deployment featured two bilingual menu boards and two integrated promotional boards, as well as custom radio integration via MOOYAH Radio, powered by Wireless Ronin’s partner Custom Channels. The promotional boards are seamlessly integrated with the Custom Channels music service to show a “now playing” feature, which displays information about the music being played, including artist, song title and album. Wireless Ronin will provide ongoing hosting and maintenance services.

“This installation marks our eleventh deployment in the Middle East region and represents a tremendous opportunity for further international expansion,” said Scott Koller, Wireless Ronin’s president and CEO. “We were able to create a truly customized in-store experience, which should ultimately increase customer engagement and sales for the franchisee. The success of our installations at U.S. MOOYAH locations over the past three years was a key driver in establishing our new business relationship with MENAFEX.”

“We are excited about our partnership with Wireless Ronin as it allows us to bring a unified technology solution to our international MOOYAH development partners, as well as the other strategic brands for which we hold master franchise rights. We believe that Wireless Ronin has the adaptive content capability and distributed presence needed to rapidly deploy new marketing and promotional opportunities to our country and brand partners,” said Stephen Getty, MENAFEX president and CEO. “Having piloted the integrated model of WRT and Custom Channels technologies, we are confident the implementation can be supported across hundreds of additional stores while increasing the opportunities for guest engagement through WRT supported social media marketing solutions.”

“We believe this will be the first of many installations throughout the Middle East, as both restaurants and retailers look to differentiate themselves among competitors. We seek to provide the highest quality digital marketing solutions in the market and we remain optimistic about future deployments in our growing pipeline, both domestically and internationally,” added Koller.

LAKE ANNA STATE PARK, VA - A recent Virginia Tech study found that new multimedia exhibits at the Lake Anna State Park Visitor Center in Spotsylvania, Va., were viewed very favorably by park visitors. This spring the park visitor center received new interactive, technology-driven education displays to replace static displays developed when the center opened in the 1980s. Researchers from the school’s Pamplin College of Business and the College of Natural Resources and Environment partnered to develop the study.

Multimedia Exhibits - Large Format Graphics - Reader Rails - Touchscreen Interactives

“State park visitor centers should be places where visitor experiences are enhanced and knowledge of the area’s cultural, natural and recreational resources is informed,” said Joe Elton, state parks director for the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation. “This study suggests that these new robust, multimedia displays do that in a most entertaining fashion.” Virginia’s 36 state parks are managed by the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation.

In a random survey of visitors to the park’s visitor center, 98 percent of respondents found the exhibits to be educational; 94 percent described the exhibits as entertaining. Similarly, 91 percent of survey participants would recommend the exhibits to friends and family and 95 percent would support the development of similar exhibits in other Virginia State Parks.

The study was conducted by Dr. Vincent P. Magnini of Virginia Tech’s Department of Hospitality and Tourism Management and Dr. Michael G. Sorice from the Department of Forest Resources and Environmental Conservation. “The visitors overwhelmingly like the new displays, intend to spread positive word-of-mouth about them and support the notion of constructing more,” Dr. Magnini said of the study’s results.

The Lake Anna exhibits were designed and installed by Imperial Multimedia of Baraboo, Wisc., in collaboration with state park staff. They feature a life-like storyteller, numerous interactive educational exhibits, several video features and a 3-D theater. A digital sign provides live streaming weather, notices of daily park events, alerts and a slideshow of special park features.

Multimedia Exhibits - Large Format Graphics - Touchscreen Interactives

“We find modern visitors are busy and demanding,” Elton said. “If it isn’t cool, forget it. If it doesn’t impress them quickly, it is an opportunity lost. We recognize young people may be spending eight hours a day or more involved with some form of technology and as a result traditional static exhibits can’t compete.”

Buoyed by the response to the exhibits at Lake Anna State Park, Virginia State Parks, the Virginia Association for Parks and Imperial Multimedia will partner to design and develop new exhibits in 11 Virginia State Park visitor centers over the next several years. The partners, in collaboration with local state park friends groups, will seek private support for the new exhibits in the other state park facilities. Funding for the exhibits at Lake Anna came from the private sector, the result of fundraising efforts by the VAFP and the Friends of Lake Anna State Park.

“I’m very impressed with the public nature of this partnership, which is recruiting private money to improve public facilities,” Elton added. “The practical impact is visitors are more impressed, more likely to return to the park in the future and are more likely to appreciate the stewardship responsibility we have to our cultural and natural resources, as well as stewardship of our bodies through adoption of a healthy, active lifestyle.”

#everywhereUR spotlights the power of out of home advertising

Outdoor Advertising Association of America (OAAA), Aerva, Clear Channel Outdoor and others to support the #EverywhereUR OOH campaign that runs in New York. The interactive campaign will coincide with Advertising Week which is celebrating its 10th anniversary.

This ubiquitous OOH campaign will be integrated with a mobile elements using Twitter via AerTweet and Pic2Screen powered by Aerva. Viewers will be invited to snap a photo and have their image appear in Times Square – then, their image on the Times Square billboard will be sent back as a keepsake photo for the user to share and view in the keepsakes gallery.

As part of the annual Advertising Week held in New York from September 23 – 27, the Outdoor Advertising Association of America (OAAA), along with OOH media companies, has launched a campaign that highlights the effectiveness of out of home (OOH) advertising and its influential relationship to social media. A network of more than 2,500 billboards across the country is proving to the American public that OOH advertising is “EverywhereUR.”

“OOH is the perfect medium to allow advertisers to engage with the public because it is everywhere you are, reaching consumers where they spend more than 70 percent of their waking hours – outside of the home.” said Nancy Fletcher, OAAA president & CEO.

The campaign allows Americans everywhere to have their personal photos featured on a digital billboard in Times Square and then captured for posterity. The public is urged to snap a photo and tweet it using the hashtag #everywhereUR. The photos will be filtered by the hashtag, censored for appropriate content, and have a chance to appear as a photo reel on a digital billboard in Times Square. The images will be captured by cameras and sent back to the sender’s Twitter account, giving them a keepsake of their personal image on a prominent Times Square billboard.

“The proliferation of social networks has taken OOH to new heights, positioning the medium to emerge as a key advertising option that amplifies integrated marketing campaigns,” added Fletcher. “Through this campaign, we hope social media users enjoy seeing themselves in the bright lights of Times Square, and we hope advertisers see the effectiveness and versatility of America’s OOH network.”

The #everywhereUR campaign began soliciting photos and participation the week of September 16 and goes live marking the kick off to the 10th Annual Advertising Week. The seamless technology that allows the public to participate in this interactive OOH campaign was donated by Aerva, a digital signage technology firm that enables realtime interactivity between mobile applications and OOH.

“Everyone is mobile these days,” said Sanjay Manandhar, Aerva CEO. “It is for this reason the trend in advertising today is interaction with the public via mobile applications. When we engage users, the ad becomes meaningful. Social engagement also allows us to broaden the scope of measurement, helping advertisers to more closely define their audiences and ad placement.”

Production for billboards and other OOH formats was donated by Circle Graphics, one of the world’s largest producers of large-format graphics. The #everywhereUR campaign features art from Toronto-based artist Jazzberry Blue. The self-taught traveling artist uses a combination of bold color palettes and geometric figures in his art.

WAYNE, NJ – JVC Professional Products Company, a division of JVC Americas Corp., today announced it has partnered with RGB Spectrum to jointly develop an affordable, “Ultra HD” real-time multiviewer system that is appropriate for a variety of high-end monitoring applications. The system combines JVC’s PS-840UD Professional Series ProVérité or RS-840UD Reference Series 4K 84-inch LCD monitors with RGB Spectrum’s SuperView 4K Multiviewer.

Recently showcased at InfoComm 2013, the system generated significant customer, dealer, and system integrator interest. It is ideal for high-profile custom installations in medical, simulation, command and control centers, and more.

The SuperView 4K is a real-time multiviewer designed for monitors with a native resolution of 3840x2160, four times the resolution of full HD. Based on RGB Spectrum’s real-time architecture, it can display and manipulate native 4K images, a combination of 4K and HD (1920x1080) windows, or up to eight HD graphic or video windows (scaled or unscaled) on a single 4K monitor. When combined with a JVC PS-840UD or RS 840UD, the result is an eight megapixel multiviewer with unprecedented multi-window clarity and resolution.

Developed specifically for rigorous commercial use, both JVC monitors feature an IPS LCD panel with 120Hz refresh rate and 10 bit color depth. Housed in a slim bezel with a 178 degree viewing angle, the ELED Illuminated monitors produce vibrant, natural images from a variety of HD and 4K input sources, including HDMI 1.4a (single cable 4K up to 30p) and HDMI (four cable 4K up to 60p). The PS-840UD includes compatibility with the Intel open pluggable specification (OPS), which makes it a high-performance choice for high-end public signage display applications. The RS-840UD has been licensed with the Imaging Science Foundation (ISF) and includes a C3 mode for professional calibration. Precise settings are stored in the monitor for accurate reproduction of film or video content in a variety of viewing environments.

“The emerging 4K market is on every system integrator’s mind, and working with JVC enables us to address this emerging requirement with a complete system solution for 4K,” said Jed Deame, vice president of marketing at RGB Spectrum. “From the board room to teleconferencing to high-end custom installations, the SuperView 4K multiviewer plus the 84-inch 4K monitors by JVC offers customers an extraordinary new level of performance.”

“Our new 4K monitors are designed for custom installations that require reliability and ultra-high resolution,” added John Havens, JVC national marketing and communications manager. “When combined with RGB Spectrum’s SuperView 4K Multiviewer, it is an ideal solution for conference rooms, studios and trucks, medical imaging, casinos, and other high-end surveillance applications.”

ViewSonic brings big performance and ergonomics to the enterprise in a 20” unique, smaller form factor catering to specialized size, resolution and space requirements

WALNUT, Calif. – ViewSonic Corp., a leading global provider of visual solution products, is expanding its VG39 ergonomic display series with the availability of the new VG2039m-LED. As one of the very first display manufacturers to offer a 19.5” visible panel designed specifically for the enterprise[1], the new VG2039m-LED complements 22” and 24” VG series models, which are already shipping.

“Many of our commercial customers need certain sizes and resolutions, whether it be due to space limitations, application needs, or in some cases cost,” said Kenneth Mau, Product Manager for ViewSonic. “We designed the VG2039m-LED especially for our enterprise customers who value premium features such as a thin, matte finish bezel, advanced ergonomics and DisplayPort connectivity, while requiring a smaller form factor.”

Ideal for demanding business professionals, the 20” (19.5” visible) VG2039m-LED widescreen display offers the high-performance features and functionality of the VG39 family, within a space-saving design. As compared to a conventional 18.5” panel, the VG2039m-LED delivers 37 percent more pixels and 10 percent more viewing area, translating to enhanced clarity (native 1600×900 Full HD resolution), and higher levels of detail (20,000,000:1 MEGA dynamic contrast ratio).

With a thin, matte finish bezel and hidden stereo speakers, the VG2039m-LED is ideal for dual or multi-monitor setup support. And with a fully ergonomic stand (with height adjust, swivel and tilt), users can create a more comfortable working environment to maximize productivity. Teamed with a flexible VESA-mountable design[2], the VG2039m-LED is perfect for everything from government and education applications to the office place.

The VG2039m-LED is a future-proof display choice equipped with flexible connectivity options (DisplayPort, DVI-D and VGA) that are widely adopted in the enterprise. Furthermore, the cost and energy savings provided by this Energy Star and EPEAT Silver certified display make it a great long-term investment.

The VG2039m-LED is available this week in the Americas for an ESP of $179.99. Other available displays within the growing VG39 enterprise series include the 22” VG2239m-LED and 24” VG2439m-LED.

LOS GATOS, CA – BrightSign today announced that international luxury brand Dior is using BrightSign players to drive video walls in 13 stores and concessions in Europe and Asia. The installation was conceived and is managed by Digitalli, a media content agency.

Dior stores and concessions in France, UK, Italy, Spain, Russia, China and Japan feature two or more video walls with 2-5 synchronized screens driven by BrightSign players. Dior commissioned Digitalli to provide synchronized video content to run on all of the screens worldwide. Bertrand Degien, Technical Director, recommended BrightSign players for the new Points of Sale (POS) they installed. BrightSign solid-state players are the playback platform of choice for Digitalli at new stores around the world based on their stellar image quality and total reliability.

The Dior installation is challenging in two ways. Installations in Dior stores and concessions worldwide are carried out by local AV integrators and as a result the format of the screens isn’t completely standard. Secondly, the Internet connection in some stores cannot be used to upload content due to security restrictions.

“I love the BrightSign solid-state players,” said Bertrand Degien. “They are robust, and easy to use and provide great quality Full HD playback. We provide over 30 different videos per month to be played in-synch on the BrightSign players on two different walls in each store worldwide. Though with some stores we are able to access the players directly through the BrightSign Network, for most we have to send SD cards with the content which are handled by the store staff. Due to the simplicity of the BrightSign players, this has caused no issue even though we are working with staff around the world speaking multiple different languages. In addition, BrightAuthor software makes it very easy to synchronise the content across all of the screens in each store. The software also allows us to edit the movie to work with the specific screens in each store.”

Pierre Gillet - Vice President, European Sales for BrightSign added, “The use of BrightSign players by a premium brand like Dior in 13 stores around the world demonstrates that our players stand comparison with much more costly solutions in terms of playback quality. The Dior installation is exceptionally demanding as the screens are located all over the world, so the total reliability of BrightSign players was a further key factor in Digitalli’s choice for these counters.”

About Digitalli

Digitalli is a media content agency specialising in the integration of digital signage and new technologies at Points of Sale, particularly for the most famous luxury and cosmetic brands. They are highly skilled in the set-up of video walls and they are able to provide fully synchronized content to suit every aspect ratio used in store. Digitalli is based in Paris and provides robust and reliable installations, as well as high definition content. Creating a reliable and qualitative content and container chain has pushed Digitalli to choose BrightSign in order to perfectly fulfill the luxury brands expectations.

The Studio Pro Series eliminates the moiré effect with superb performance.
ATLANTA, GEORGIA, — NanoLumens® today announced its Studio Pro Series LED displays for broadcast studio applications. The breakthrough large-format displays address all of the challenges traditionally associated with LED broadcast display systems and promise to revolutionize the way studios design their sets.
NanoLumens formally introduced the Studio Pro Series last week at the Atlanta, Georgia regional section of the Society of Motion Picture & Television Engineers (SMPTE) September meeting, which they co-hosted with Sony at the NanoLumens corporate headquarters. More than 55 engineers attended the unveiling, which included a demonstration of the Studio Pro displays with a Sony 4K professional camera.
“The need to rely on bulky, heat generating and noisy rear projection display systems is officially over,” asserted NanoLumens President & CEO Rick Cope. “Our new Studio Pro Series of LED broadcast displays allows designers to create sets in entirely new ways with displays that are less than 6 inches thick while cutting down on cost, heat, energy consumption and maintenance issues.”
According to Cope, “The best way to prove a breakthrough technology is to subject it to real-world testing with the same high-end cameras and equipment, and that is exactly what we did using Sony’s world-class professional cameras.”
The Studio Pro Series allows set designers to better create sets to more effectively engage their viewers while eliminating the single biggest performance issue that has limited the use of LED displays in broadcast applications — the moiré effect.

DULUTH, Ga.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--FNB, South Africa’s oldest bank and one of the largest financial institutions in the country, is automating and innovating routine banking transactions and improving customer service by installing 1,250 NCR SelfServ™ 4 units. The SelfServ 4 is an ATM-like kiosk that FNB has branded “Slimline ATMs” in their retail sites and remote sites not served by traditional branches and conventional ATMs nationwide.

The SelfServ 4 offers consumers the convenience of bypassing not only teller lines but even actual banking interaction and quickly completing typical branch transactions, such as account maintenance and financial product research and purchases. By migrating routine transactions to self-service channels, in-bank tellers can dedicate more time to customer service, facilitating high-value product purchases and cross-sales.

According to NCR global research, in-the-bank tellers spend 90 percent of their time on basic account maintenance and payment transactions and just 10 percent interacting with customers. Increasing face-to-face customer service opportunities not only improves the overall customer experience, it helps branches cut down operational costs since typical self-service transactions cost up to 75 percent less than teller transactions.

“FNB has been recognized as the most innovative bank in the world, and we are leading the field again with new concepts into banking methodologies,” said Aziz Cassim, Head of Self Service Delivery at FNB. “We developed this as a unique technology to address access to banking in a way that deepens functionality and brings full digital banking to our remote sites. In the process, we created a unique ATM designed specifically for emerging market and lower income needs. This slimline ATM also has great potential across all our market segments from personal to business and commercial due to its deep digital banking ability.”

FNB worked with Bytes Managed Solutions, which exclusively distributes and supports financial services solutions from NCR.

"Banks continue to look for innovative solutions to modernize and improve the efficiencies of their retail banking channels,” said Percy Thaver, Country Manager, NCR South Africa. "With NCR financial kiosks, FNB is taking a dramatic step toward developing a branch channel optimized for customer service.”

DULUTH, Ga., (BUSINESS WIRE) -- NCR Corporation, the global leader in consumer transaction technologies, today announced a four-year partnership with the Atlanta Falcons of the National Football League.

In addition, interns from Georgia Tech will use NCR's leading POS Counterpoint software technology and mobile applications to allow suite holders the ability to make purchases during the game from the comforts of their suite and then have the merchandise delivered before the end of the game.

Furthermore, NCR Wayfinding interactive self-service solution will be installed at the stadium, to make it easier for fans to find their way around the large, multi-tier stadium with a touch of the finger.

"The Atlanta Falcons organization wants to provide Falcons fans with the best game day experience possible. With the help of NCR we have an opportunity to make the selection, purchase and pickup of Falcons merchandise easier and more convenient for our fans," said Tim Zulawski Vice President of Sponsorship Sales & Service for the Atlanta Falcons.

NCR's CFO Bob Fishman is equally enthusiastic. "We are very proud to sponsor the Atlanta Falcons," he said. "Today's partnership announcement is focused on creating exceptional fan experiences by leveraging our leading consumer transaction technologies, making the everyday easier for fans and the Falcons."

Tapping into the talented students at Georgia Tech, NCR is providing the students with an opportunity to work with the Atlanta Falcons. Students will learn the real-world complexities of integrating technology and marketing into business--on one of the biggest sports and entertainment stages that exist today.

NCR and the Falcons are also kicking off a series of programs for NCR employees and the community.

MINNEAPOLIS – Wireless Ronin Technologies, Inc. (OTCQB: RNIN), a leading digital marketing technologies solutions provider, releases a new version of its flagship software platform, RoninCast® 4.2. The upgrade expands the functionality of the interactive digital marketing platform with a “Play It Now” hot link feature that allows a mobile device to control the content of nearby digital media displays in real time.

This exciting new functionality enhances both customer-facing and employee-facing applications. Live education or sales presentations, for example, become richer with RoninCast 4.2’s ability to control varying content on devices around a room from a single presentation for a true multi-media effect. The “Play It Now” feature is also ideal for in-store sales support applications. In these situations, a sales associate can lead a customer through product features on a large format display, controlling the content from a smartphone or tablet.

The upgrade has been a key driver for winning recent new business, including Indian Motorcycle, a division of NYSE-listed Polaris Industries and a leader in the power sports industry. Customers or sales advisors at an Indian Motorcycle dealership can select relevant content from a table-side tablet and then send it to the large screen of a RoninCast-powered Media Hearth in the dealership showroom. As recently announced, Indian Motorcycle has installed this RoninCast 4.2-based interactive digital marketing solution at 35 dealerships, with plans to expand across its dealer network nationwide.

The upgrade builds off the highly successful fourth-generation RoninCast platform that was released in February 2013. RoninCast leverages HTML5 capabilities to more cost-effectively deliver robust digital content to current or emerging marketing technology platforms, including digital signage, interactive kiosk, mobile, social and web.

RoninCast 4.2’s additional upgrades include enhanced security features and additional integration with our digital music service partner, Custom Channels. The RoninCast software now includes a Custom Channels Widget that allows for the easy integration of the Custom Channels music service and the ability to display “What’s Playing Now” on nearby digital screens. Tying together in-store music with real-time updates of artist, title and album information on a visual display creates an immersive brand experience for customers to see and enjoy.

“We continue to make tremendous progress advancing our technology, demonstrated by our second major software upgrade and release this year,” said Scott Koller, Wireless Ronin’s president and CEO. “We believe RoninCast 4.2 will drive broader adoption by existing customers and generate new major customer wins like Indian Motorcycle.”

RoninCast 4.2 is scheduled for release in October 2013. To see a video preview of the new “Play It Now” functionality,

Shoppers benefit from reduced queues and faster service at the checkout, retailer gains increased capacity and cost efficiency

MOSCOW--(BUSINESS WIRE)--After a successful introduction of NCR SelfServ™ checkout in the Vladimir and Korolev markets last year, Globus is making self-checkout available in more cities in Russia, enhancing shopper experiences and streamlining business operations. The hypermarket chain plans installations in its new markets in Krasnogorsk and Tver as well as in the chain's existing store in Klimovsk.

Globus customers have quickly embraced self-checkout. For instance, in Globus’ Vladimir store, about 15,000 customers a week are using self-checkout technology. Shoppers are migrating to self-checkout because it helps save time by scanning, bagging and paying for goods themselves. The user-friendly interface guides shoppers through each step of the self-checkout process by visual and verbal prompts.

For Globus, self-checkout reduces queues in the checkout area, allowing the store to serve additional customers more quickly. Since one attendant looks after three to six self-checkout stations, it also allows Globus to redeploy employees for more value-added tasks such as helping customers find merchandise in the aisles, offering product advice and making sure shelves are stocked properly. The addition of the compact self-checkouts more than doubles the number of tills within the same footprint as traditional checkouts without any need to reduce the space allocated to merchandise.

As an added advantage, manual cash counting is no longer necessary since the checkout units count money automatically, accelerating the entire cash handling process.

"Self-checkout makes shopping easier and more convenient for our customers, which they really like. It has resulted in increasing our customer base and decreasing queues," said Nikolay Baranov, store manager of Globus in Vladimir. "By enabling a time-saving self service solution, we are not only increasing our efficiency but also adding value to the customer in the process."

According to a new study published by strategic research and consulting firm RBR, NCR is the leader in retail self-checkout shipments with a total of 70 percent share, which is an increase of six percent in 2012.

"Self-checkout technology helps retailers boost customer service levels, and also operate more cost- and time-effectively. Staff at the self-checkout no longer have to do the typical tasks of a manned till, such as taking goods, scanning them and typing in the prices, but can concentrate on more value-added, customer focused activities," said Arif Kasumov, NCR SelfServ Retail Solution Specialist for Russia.

About Globus

Globus is an international chain of hypermarkets, which is represented by the retail outlets in Germany, the Czech Republic and Russia.

Award winning digital display technology takes another step forward with latest upgrade

CYPRESS, Calif. – Four years after initial product launch, Christie® MicroTiles® continue to captivate audiences with high resolution, high brightness displays that bring digital content to life in rich, vivid colors. Now, Christie has taken another step forward in near seamless video walls by offering a new screen option for its multiple award-winning technology: the Christie MicroTiles S310 screen.

Featuring the same optical performance and construction as the S300, the Christie MicroTiles S310 screen is slightly larger and features 0.7-millimeter seams (compared to 1.3-millimeter seams for the S300). The S310 operating temperature range is 5 degrees Celsius (41 degrees Fahrenheit) to 35 degrees Celsius (95 degrees Fahrenheit). Just like the S300 screen option, the Christie MicroTiles S310 screen delivers excellent contrast with deeper blacks and image uniformity in even the most demanding indoor high ambient light environments.

“With its near seamless appearance, the new Christie MicroTiles S310 screen provides an even more lifelike visual experience – and creates an even more natural touch interface when Christie MicroTiles are coupled with the Christie Interactivity Kit,” said Richard Heslett, senior product manager, Christie. “For applications such as broadcast sets, control rooms, and high-profile lobby, corporate or retail signage where the tightest possible seams are necessary, the Christie MicroTiles S310 screen is the clear choice.”

Christie Interactivity Kit provides the creative flexibility to incorporate multipoint touch interactivity into large-format digital displays and allows multiple users to interact simultaneously with content on Christie MicroTiles or any large-format video wall.

With a much wider color palette than conventional LCD and plasma displays, Christie MicroTiles display pure, saturated, accurate colors, making them ideal for public spaces. The modular display technology can be configured into nearly any shape and size to create an eye-catching digital canvas.

The Christie MicroTiles S310 screen is now shipping.

The Star Performing Arts Centre features more than 100 digital screens to provide broadcast-quality live streaming, wayfinding signs, event promotions, and meeting room information

MONTREAL — X2O Media, a full-service provider of software, network management, and content services for real-time visual communication applications, today announced its implementation of award-winning X2O Media software at Singapore's latest performing arts venue — The Star Performing Arts Centre (The Star PAC). The software platform drives information to more than 100 digital signage screens across the nine-level state-of-the-art complex, including broadcast-quality live events streaming, wayfinding capabilities, upcoming event promotions, and dynamic meeting room information.

Completed in November 2012, The Star PAC features a collection of performance and event spaces, including The Star Theatre, a 5,000-seat auditorium designed by Artec Consultants Inc; The Star Gallery, a 770-sqm multipurpose hall; The Star Terrace, a 300-seat outdoor amphitheatre; The Star Loft, a rooftop reception area; and supporting ancillary studios. The complex has become both a major cultural landmark for Southeast Asia and a revolutionary concept of how arts and commercial establishments are built into Singapore's city center.

"With a new structure as revolutionary as The Star, we needed a digital signage system equal to the task of delivering diverse content and live streaming to multiple screens, all while seamlessly integrating into our existing network," said Jack Ho, Chief Operating Officer at The Star PAC. "The X2O Media platform's flexibility, broadcast-quality graphics, real-time communication, and central management tools made it the obvious choice for our requirements. We are also able to repurpose content easily to fulfill a series of other functions, such as wayfinding signs and the promotion of upcoming events, making the installation a complete, multipurpose solution that satisfies the diverse needs of our center."

When an event is taking place, the digital screens across the complex display broadcast-quality live streaming. In addition, freestanding totem displays add crawls, ticket information, and video previews of upcoming events in the auditorium and other spaces within the complex. This information draws visitors to the facility and makes them feel welcome while keeping them informed of future events, which drives ticket sales. Furthermore, the facility-wide digital signage system offers wayfinding navigation for guests and dynamic meeting room information. The solution also delivers content to The Star Terrace, an outdoor amphitheatre where patrons can catch live performances directly from the large LED screen.

The unique deployment takes advantage of X2O's powerful content management tools, allowing the end user to operate the entire system both locally and remotely via VPN, as well as enabling different users such as graphic designers or event planners to manage their relevant content. The X2O platform also seamlessly integrates into the complex's state-of-the-art audio/video and broadcast management system, delivering versatility and elegance within a world-class performance setting.

The X2O Media signage platform enables users to communicate more effectively using stunning TV-like channels across multiple devices. Built using the HTML5 standard, the software allows users to create rich media channels quickly and easily — featuring HD video, 3D animations, charts and graphs, and links to live data sources — and publish those channels across desktop PCs, smartphones, tablets, and digital signage displays.

More information about X2O Media and the X2O platform is available at

MINNEAPOLIS – Wireless Ronin Technologies, Inc. (OTCQB: RNIN), a leading marketing technologies solutions provider, has been selected by Indian Motorcycle, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Polaris Industries (NYSE: PII), to launch its uniquely powerful digital marketing technology across its dealership network in the United States. Indian Motorcycle is expanding its dealer networks across major motorcycle markets nationwide.

The new digital marketing initiative features Indian Motorcycle branded content which is centrally deployed using Wireless Ronin’s newly upgraded omnichannel RoninCast 4.2 software. Wireless Ronin received an initial purchase order to provide the necessary hardware, software, content engineering and development and training, as well as ongoing content hosting and support at its 24/7 customer support center.

Wireless Ronin worked closely with Indian Motorcycle to create an in-store customer experience that matches the ease, functionality and interactivity of Indian Motorcycle’s existing online assets. The dealership solution includes a 46” display as part of a central Media Hearth along with a mobile tablet that sits tableside near the Media Hearth allowing customers to select content from the tablet to play on the 46” screen. When not being controlled by the tablet, the Media Hearth screen plays a standard video loop along with social media and weather content zones. A bike side tablet is also being deployed, providing interactive, bike-specific information to the customer.

While this win represents Wireless Ronin’s first entry into the power sports industry, it builds upon a 20-year history of success with the automotive industry, including ongoing deployments at hundreds of Chrysler, Fiat, Ford and Nissan dealerships across the U.S. and Canada.

“Since our dynamic digital marketing solutions are designed to provide a significant near-term return on investment, they will play a key role in Indian Motorcycle’s overall marketing strategy as they expand their dealership networks across the United States and internationally,” commented Scott Koller, the company’s president and CEO. “Like with our proven solutions for the auto industry, this digital solution for Indian Motorcycle will enhance the sales process in a highly effective way. The interactive system will track usage and content selections, creating an amazingly deep level of business intelligence. It will help them identify and respond to consumer interests and trends, which, at the end, falls to the bottom line.”

Rod Krois, Marketing Director for Indian Motorcycle, added: “After a competitive review process, Wireless Ronin emerged successful due to their leading technology, flexible solution approach, and end-to-end support. From our first meeting with Wireless Ronin, we were impressed with their capabilities. Their responsiveness coupled with the ability to deliver quality, reliable digital solutions are allowing us to enhance our customer experience while ensuring consistent messaging and content across our dealership network.”

CradlePoint to Provide Distributed Enterprises with Best-In Class Reliability, Performance, and Cloud-Enabled Management on Sprint’s 4G LTE Network

Boise, ID and Las Vegas, NV – CradlePoint, the global leader in 3G/4G wireless networking solutions for distributed enterprises, today announced at the M2M Evolution Conference support for Sprint’s 4G LTE network. CradlePoint’s suite of advanced networking solutions enables enterprise customers to leverage Sprint’s 4G LTE Network for a variety of enterprise networking applications.

The availability of 4G LTE has changed the way in which enterprises deploy and manage their enterprise networks. Some enterprises use 4G LTE as their primary network connectivity for employees, customers, kiosks, digital signage, point-of-sale devices, and vehicles. Other enterprises use 4G LTE as a backup network connection, significantly reducing the costly downtime associated with wired network outages. Finally, enterprises are increasingly using 4G LTE to create separate standalone networks within their enterprises, specifically to offload applications such as customer WiFi or digital signage from the secure private networks that handle sensitive customer transactions and data.

“The expansion of Sprint’s 4G LTE Network represents our commitment to the latest technology, more efficient cell sites, broader coverage areas, and stronger signal strength,” said Wayne Ward, Vice President of Business and Product Development at Sprint. “As distributed enterprises deploy a growing array of operational and customer facing applications that require the speed, flexibility, and reliability that only 4G LTE can offer, we welcome CradlePoint’s partnership and market leadership to support Sprint enterprise customers with their industry leading 4G networking solutions and cloud-based management platform.”

CradlePoint COR and ARC networking solutions are designed to leverage 4G LTE for a variety of enterprise and M2M (machine-to-machine) networking applications. Customers include retail stores and restaurants, branch offices, kiosks and digital signage, and transportation providers such as buses and taxis. Customers utilize the recently announced CradlePoint Enterprise Cloud Manager to easily configure, deploy, manage, and monitor on-premise network equipment in real-time from a central location, enabling significantly lower operating costs by reducing network downtime and costly truck rolls.

“CradlePoint is committed to the needs and requirements of distributed enterprises as they utilize 4G LTE in their business to drive increased revenues and operational efficiency,” said George Mulhern, CEO and Chairman of the Board at CradlePoint. “The combination of CradlePoint’s industry-leading wireless networking solutions with Sprint’s emerging 4G LTE network provides a compelling and cost-effective solution for Sprint’s base of customers within the enterprise, retail, machine-to-machine, and transportation markets.”

The growing support of Sprint’s 4G LTE network, which is projected to provide service to 200 million people by the end of 2013, is indicative of customers’ and enterprises’ appetite for better coverage, improved network reliability, strong voice quality, and increased management capabilities. Today’s announcement builds upon Sprints expansion of its new 4G LTE Network:

• Sprint Turns up 4G LTE in 41 More Locations, Expands LTE Coverage to 151 Markets

The CradlePoint COR and ARC series have 3G/4G dual mode capabilities to enable deployment of a single solution for many company locations, leveraging 3G in locations where 4G is not yet available. In addition, devices can be managed remotely using Enterprise Cloud Manager, CradlePoint’s network management platform for the rapid deployment, dynamic management, and enhanced intelligence of CradlePoint enterprise network solutions.

Upon certification, CradlePoint COR and ARC series routers with integrated Sprint modems will be available from authorized distributors and resellers before the end of 2013.

INTEGRATE AUSTRALIA/Sydney – Christie, a world leader in display and visualization solutions, is now offering its new Christie Brio in Australia. A powerful meeting presentation and collaboration solution providing a rich participation experience, Christie Brio allow users to virtually meet, share information and collaborate effortlessly, overcome geographical distances, and eliminate the challenge of single and multi-site workplace meetings.

Easy to install and use, Christie Brio uses wired or wireless connections to automatically coordinate and display up to five simultaneous video and audio presentations on one or two meeting room screens. Multiple attendees can now run audio and video presentations from their own handheld devices without scrambling for matching display cables and adapters, plugging in dongles, or installing and configuring new software to get it working. Whether using Macs or PCs, iPads or Android tablets, or smartphones, participants and presentations can be added to a virtual meeting in the correct aspect ratios.

“As we thought about what we wanted in a meeting technology, there were three things that were very clear,” said Kathryn Cress, vice president, global & corporate marketing, Christie. “One, it had to be easily accessible, with no special training or driver software that users had to install. Two, it had to tear down the existing communication barriers so that sharing information became effortless. And three, it had to allow users to share multiple types of content. The ultimate goal in developing Christie Brio was to ensure that all participants could share whatever they needed to—to ultimately be able to share more.”

Using a single, low-cost hardware Brio node, any meeting room can automatically add up to five presentations to that room’s displays. Once the node processes the content it can also be made available to other Brio nodes across the country via locally managed IP networks. In this way, a variety of information – including PowerPoint and keynote presentations, audio, digital whiteboards, and videoconferencing sessions – can be pushed to any display attached to the Brio node and shared with all the displays simultaneously across multiple rooms and offices.

“In Australia, the workplace is slowly changing and results are achieved largely through collaboration and interaction,” commented Michael Bosworth, general manager, Christie Australia. “By eliminating geographical distances, the intuitive Christie Brio helps companies reduce costs associated with conventional meetings. This easy-to-install-and-use solution allows participants to focus on sharing information, discussing and making real-time contributions effectively and efficiently.”

Christie Digital Systems USA, Inc. a wholly-owned subsidiary of Ushio, Inc., Japan, (JP:6925), designs, builds and installs customized projection display solutions.
