MVIX empowers Habasit America - world leader for power transmission and conveyor belting - to enhance employee communication via digital signage at their state-of-the-art production facility in their Suwanee, GA headquarters.

Sterling, VA (PRWEB) - Habasit America - world leader for power transmission and conveyor belting - selects MVIX to power the digital signage screens in their state-of-the-art production facility in their Suwanee, GA headquarters.

For over 65 years, Habasit America has been offering conveyor belting solutions that include fabric belts, power transmission belts, plastic modular belts, timing belts, and chains. This wide selection of unequaled, comprehensive and superior products gives them the unique ability to service almost any industry and application. Their products move automotive parts, food and beverages, electronic components, paper, pharmaceuticals, textiles, wood, and airport baggage. This unparalleled and extensive market presence is made possible by their impressive global network of over 30 Habasit affiliates, 250 service centers, and over 3300 employees worldwide.

The advertising and information landscapes are changing and consumers and employees are increasingly swayed by dynamic media. Innovation and change are no longer options, they are critical. This has seen manufacturing facilities actively turning to digital signage as a messaging solution and Habasit America is no exception. Their customer-driven approach led them to invest in digital signage systems for looping product feature videos at their Suwanee, GA offices. The products in the videos were placed right underneath the digital signage screens. “Digital signage allows us to engage with our employees and visitors, and invite them into this virtual world where they not only see the physical product, but they see it in application too,” said Allison Cox, Habasit America’s Communications and Brand Manager. "This builds brand identity and enhances the audience experience."

The use cases for Mvix digital signage systems are limitless. With the success of the initial investment, Habasit America acquired additional systems for employee communication. These are used to display company updates, events, job openings, HR deadlines, etc. Mvix signage systems provided an opportunity for real-time interaction and made it easy for the communication department to disseminate information to the employees. Reacting dynamically and having direct control of communication processes is one of the requirements the future has in store for successful companies such as Habasit America.

The multi-user platform of Mvix signage systems makes them ideal for companies with multiple locations. Multiple users get access to the same account with different permissions. Account administrators can create users and assign rights for each functional level/group of the network. This ability to assign highly specialized user-based permissions allows the versatile management of the signage network across multiple locations.

“We currently have four U.S. and Canadian locations equipped with Mvix signage systems,” said Allison. “One of the features of Mvix’s systems that drew us in is centralized control. We oversee the signage networks at our Suwanee location, but each individual location has an admin that will usually update content based on the needs of their location.”

When Habasit America started exploring digital signage options, Mvix quickly made it to their short list. “There were not a significant amount of comparable, affordable, and professional-quality options,” added Allison. Mvix’s simple user interface and the ease of updating content were some of the features that appealed to Habasit America. Their Director of IT, Gerald Brouillette, had previous experience with Mvix’s systems and highly recommended them as a superior product. Within a few days after purchase, Mvix’s systems were up and running and it did not take long for Habasit America to purchase additional systems.

“Habasit America is a role-model company where employee communication is at the core of its operations,” said A. Jay, the Mvix Sr. Director of Business Relations. “Digital Signage is a young, dynamic and extremely flexible communications solution, and we are fully committed to complementing Habasit America’s efforts of expanding their messaging options.”

Allison agrees, “We've placed numerous orders for additional units and certainly wouldn't have done this without having seen positive results from the existing units. Mvix has met and exceeded our expectations!”

Reflect, the premier turnkey digital media solutions provider for out-of-home customer experiences, announced the release of Reflect WayFinder.  The advanced digital wayfinding application is improving guest experiences for brands nationwide.  Reflect WayFinder was featured in the New Product Showcase at the Digital Signage Expo last week in Las Vegas.

Reflect helps brands power their communications with digital media solutions and immersive guest experiences, engaging their customers throughout their journey visiting a brand’s location.  Introduced to the market in 2005, ReflectView™ is employed by some of the most well-known brands in the world including Best Buy, GameStop, Levi’s, Target, and Verizon Wireless. Large-scale digital media networks powered by Reflect are managing more than 300,000 screens across the United States and Canada.

Reflect understands that consumer-facing companies must find new ways to extend the positive customer experience across the multiple channels of the customer journey — including mobile, social media, broadcast, and brick-and-mortar — while maintaining a consistent brand message and approach. With Reflect Wayfinder, consumer-facing companies are engaging and guiding customers when it counts the most, on location, while providing a connected, seamless omnichannel experience.

“Reflect WayFinder uses state of the art technologies and builds on our proven ReflectView digital media platform. Together, this lets us deliver adaptive, dynamic location information together with traditional media content in a way that is seamless for our partners.”  Bart Massey, Chief Operating Officer for Reflect
    
Reflect WayFinder was developed to provide clients with a turnkey, customizable digital mapping solution.  Reflect has the ability to design and create the right wayfinding experience, tailored to the needs of any brand.   Reflect will work with clients to determine the right type of product to fit their objectives, and then construct the appropriate applications and content to deliver a solution using our industry-leading ReflectView digital media platform. Reflect solutions are custom designed, but with scalability, expandability, and reliability in mind.

Reflect WayFinder | Passive

For easy, quick mapping needs, Reflect will work with clients to create a user-friendly digital map of their space that can be directly displayed on non-interactive media players. The power of the ReflectView platform allows the digital map to be displayed when and where the client wants it, and also allows it to be intermixed with other content as desired. This solution is ideal for less complex facilities and areas where user interaction with a map is not needed. This is also a great way to start a wayfinding program with only a small investment in custom content.

Reflect WayFinder | Interactive

For more sophisticated scenarios where user specific interactions are needed, Reflect can construct custom map applications that allow users to interact with the digital display to perform actions like zooming in on a map, searching for store or department names, or showing routes from the user’s location to their desired destination. Interactivity greatly enhances the user experience, and Reflect puts experienced software design and UX experts to work to help design an experience that is tailored to the client’s customers.

Reflect WayFinder | Custom

Advanced, highly sophisticated experiences are not a problem.. Reflect can integrate mapping applications with digital media (videos, images, etc.) from the ReflectView system, and also from customized data sources that are unique to the client. Any type of data that is available for consumption can be connected to a Reflect map application to create truly unique and immersive guest experiences. The Reflect team will work with client resources to analyze data, provide the client with supplementary content such as social media and other engaging digital media, and design an experience that is elegant, functional, and provides users with a great experience.

More than simply a strategy for nurturing customer relationships, a positive customer experience can help shape a brand’s story, generating sales lift and deepening brand connections. To create a compelling experience, brands need the right tools to manage the digital touch points and messaging customers engage with from the moment they first interact with the brand, to the second they walk on location, until they finalize the purchase, and beyond. By controlling the right digital experiences from the moment customers walk through the door, businesses gain a competitive edge.

2015 Digital Signage Portfolio Underscores LG's Leadership in Display Technology and Smart TV

LAS VEGAS/PRNewswire/ -- LG Electronics USA introduced its next generation of digital signage products, led by Ultra HD signage displays and an expanded line of displays featuring the commercial version of its award-winning webOS platform.

Customers attending Digital Signage Expo 2015 (LG Booth #1213) will have the opportunity to discover more about LG's business-to-business (B2B) solutions with indoor and outdoor signage and a wide range of commercial applications for airports, quick-service restaurants (QSR), retail, hotels, education and public settings.

"Our customers are at the core of everything we do," said Kimun Paik, B2B senior vice president, LG Electronics USA, which is the exclusive Gold Sponsor of DSE 2015. "As new applications for digital signage emerge and the category continues to grow, it's our customers' input that drives our commitment to delivering superior engineering in a wide range of real-world commercial applications."

Ultra HD Signage Displays

Exemplifying LG's leadership in 4K Ultra HD display technology is LG's largest 2015 digital signage display, the 98-inch class (98.0 inches measured diagonally) 98LS95A, which is designed to delight both customers and end users. It delivers 3840 X 2160 resolution in a 16:9 aspect ratio, displaying vivid images with superior brightness and an incredible level of detail – four times the resolution of 1080p Full HD displays.

LG's In Plane Switching (IPS) LCD panel technology produces accurate and consistent colors from virtually any viewing angle. The 98LS95A, with a bezel width of just 14.6mm, may be mounted in portrait or landscape mode for use in a wide range of commercial applications.

Full HD Displays with "webOS for Signage"

LG's Full HD Displays with webOS for Signage (models 49LS75A and 55LS75A) were designed with customer's needs at the forefront. These models are equipped with a slim bezel that measures 7.4mm, contributing to a sleek and stylish design. Each model also comes with Wi-Fi connectivity and OPS compatibility.

Viewing is available in either landscape or portrait, and the 49-inch class (48.5-inches diagonally) and 55-inch class (54.64-inches diagonally) LS75A series models are equipped with the IP5X Dust-Proof certification, which protects against contaminants and resists dust for better performance and less heat generation.

The webOS display is also equipped with Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), which allows the TV to automatically configure a self-diagnosis to check the screen status with a pixel sensor. These features were designed to shorten integration time, reduce maintenance of the displays and allow business owners to focus on what is important for them, their customers.

EcoSmart Features

LG's ENERGY STAR® certified LED signage displays incorporate LG's EcoSmart features, which allow for multiple manual and automatic options for energy conservation and provide an ideal solution for corporate and lodging environments looking to save on energy costs. LG EcoSmart features include:

  •     Dynamic Power Savings: Reduces power consumption and optimizes picture settings
  •     Static Power Savings: Allows the installer to set the preferred power consumption level
  •     Intelligent Sensor: Allows integrators to program the display to respond to the ambient light and automatically reduce brightness, therefore reducing consumption under most circumstances.

LAS VEGAS/PRNewswire/ -- The commercial version of LG Electronics' popular webOS smart TV platform – expanding into more digital signage displays in 2015 – offers a convenient new option for content providers and business owners using LG's Smart Platform Signage solutions.

Optimized for commercial applications, LG's "webOS for Signage" is an all-in-one hardware and software platform. The launch of webOS for Signage builds on the runaway success of the webOS smart TV platform for consumer television. The award-winning webOS approach is widely considered the most intuitive smart TV platform on the market.

"Beyond providing customized and functional solutions for business owners and system integrators, LG's webOS for Signage enables a variety of web-based applications across multiple platforms, including Linux, Android, iOS and Windows, as well as the ability to write applications using HTML 5," said Clark Brown, digital signage vice president for LG Electronics USA.

For 2015, LG's Smart Platform Signage solution running webOS allows system integrators to download useful content and develop customized applications that fit their exact needs.  With webOS, LG's Smart Platform Signage can be updated immediately via a smartphone or tablet. WiFi connectivity eliminates the need for a wired connection or costly network infrastructure.

LG has engaged in new and noteworthy software partnerships to further develop these capabilities and bring cloud-based digital signage to LG digital displays featuring the webOS platform. Examples include partnerships with such leading companies as Signagelive and Ping HD, which have announced customized applications:

  •     Signagelive's low-cost, fully-supported cloud solution that runs on LG's flexible webOS for signage platform eliminates the need for external media players to run and manage digital signage campaigns.
  •     Ping HD has launched EngagePHDTM, an easy-to-use, Web-based design, content management and network monitoring application with support for LG's webOS commercial displays.

"Providing support for the LG webOS display range expands the choice of compatible solutions available to our customers," said Jason Cremins, CEO of Signagelive. "LG's highly regarded reputation in the market place together with our cross-platform capabilities make digital signage technology accessible and affordable for wide-scape commercial use by all market sectors."

Kevin Goldsmith, Director of Digital Media Operations at Ping HD, said, "A market-leading yet simplified solution for software partners like LG's webOS was ideal for EngagePHD. LG's solution was top of mind when we designed our enhanced content management software for low-cost, robust and scalable Digital Signage platforms."

"Among the key benefits to content providers and app developers are the flexibility and ease-of-use of webOS for Signage, meaning faster development and more seamless integration," Brown explained.

"But even more importantly, the webOS platform is a high-performance system-on-a-chip approach with powerful capabilities that can actually reduce the total cost of ownership," said Brown.

Visitors to LG's booth at DSE 2015 (March 11-12, Las Vegas Convention Center, Central Hall #1213) will be able to experience the LG Smart Platform Signage with webOS.

Mvix, a global provider of turnkey digital signage solutions, has announced that their digital signage systems have been implemented at Domtar Corporation’s 20-acre Johnsonburg Mill. The paper mill, one of the biggest employers in Elk County, Pennsylvania, has equipped its 4 business units with multiple digital signage screens to enhance employee communication and publish HR health, safety, and quality information.

Sterling, VA (PRWEB) - Mvix, a global provider of turnkey digital signage solutions, has announced that their digitals signage systems have been implemented at Domtar Corporation’s 20-acre Johnsonburg Mill. The paper mill, one of the biggest employers in Elk County, Pennsylvania, has equipped its 4 business units with multiple digital signage screens to enhance employee communication and publish HR health, safety, and quality information.

Domtar Corporation is the largest integrated marketer and manufacturer of uncoated freesheet paper in North America and one of the largest in the world. They have 13 pulp and paper mills (9 in the United States and 4 in Canada), with an annual production capacity of approximately 3.4 million tons of uncoated freesheet paper. Domtar, which trades on the Toronto and New York stock exchanges, reported 2014 sales of $5.6 billion.

The Johnsonburg Mill has a 125-year history in Pennsylvania. With 4 business units spanning over 20 acres, the mill has an annual paper production capacity of 369,000 tons and pulp production capacity of 238,000 tonnes. Its 2 paper machines produce business paper for copiers, xerographic, envelopes, and offset printing, as well as commercial printing paper used in such items as financial reports and hardcover books. If you've ever read a Harry Potter book... you thumbed through Johnsonburg paper.

Manufacturing facilities may be the best equipped out of any work environment to reap the benefits of digital signage in the workplace. Employees charged with repeating technical tasks and operating complex machinery do not have ready access to the traditional mediums of phone and email service. This required Domtar’s Johnsonburg Mill to find a more cost-effective and convenient way to communicate efficiently and effectively with their over 350 employees.

“Safety is a core value here at Domtar,” said Martin Ogden, the IT Manager at Domtar’s Johnsonburg Mill. “Digital signage allows us to reinforce safety information via safety videos and training, safety monitoring, and safety tracking.”

Digital signage for manufacturing plants is an asset. The benefits are wide ranging, from increasing safety awareness to improving plant communications and providing real-time presentation of metrics without relying on regular access to a computer. Displaying such information excites and empowers the workforce to improve productivity.

Martin and his team reviewed between 15-20 vendors before selecting Mvix. “Mvix was a no-brainer,” Martin added. “Their solution was low cost, and offered a lot of flexibility with regards to remote management.” Mvix trained the Domtar IT team on the digital signage software, XhibitSignage, and they in turn trained about 20 content providers.

XhibitSignage is a multi-user platform, allowing multiple users to have access to the same account. Account administrators can create users and assign highly specialized rights and permissions for each functional level of the network. For example, a user might be given access to a collection of media and playlist, but may be restricted from editing schedules of playback.

“The support we received from the team at Mvix was world-class. They were attentive and very thorough. We couldn’t be happier!” Martin added. “As we continue to expand, Mvix will be our go-to for all of our digital signage needs.”

“Martin and his entire team were great to work with,” said A. Jay, the Mvix Senior Director of Business Relations. “They understand the value of digital signage and have done an outstanding job in leveraging its functionality to the fullest. We are very excited to continue our partnership as they continue to expand and find more uses for our digital signage systems.”

Mvix’s enterprise-level digital signage systems support “set it and forget it” programming. This frees up a lot of time for floor managers and enables them to spend more time on the floor with their plant workers. The software is 100% web-based making it easily accessible, includes free media widgets and free updates and has a very flexible and user friendly scheduling tool built in it, which generates engaging communications.

About Mvix USA

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 solutions. With over 11K clients and 33K installations in over 29 countries, Mvix has established itself as a dominant player in the affordable digital signage market.

“Our digital signage systems have powerful dynamic data capabilities which is ideal for manufacturing facilities who need to reinforce communications by visualizing data, “ stated A. Jay. “ Connected and informed employees are well worth the effort!”

The PeerAir™ Pro Wireless AV System now has three HDMI inputs while maintaining VGA or Component input, and features a new quick push-button multi-cast configuration set up.

Pico Broadcaster AV (HDS-PB100AV): A digital signage integrator's dream, the Pico Broadcaster AV broadcasts HD content to an unlimited number of DTVs that have an ATSC tuner and over-the-air antenna within a 350 feet (106m) radius. This device accepts content from any HD source via Component or Non-HDCP HDMI outputs, and then broadcasts the signal to any open "white space" channel local to the area.

The Pico Broadcaster AV offers simple plug and play functionality with its standard AV connection and an adjustable power output setting. The system relies on a web-based graphical user interface for ease of configuration along with configurable IP addresses for system control and setup to join any pre-existing network.

Xtreme™ Fully Sealed Displays: Ideal for various digital signage applications, Peerless-AV's Xtreme™ displays are 100% sealed and engineered to endure the outside elements in all seasons. Ventless with full 1080p HD flatscreens, the Xtreme™ displays are designed to withstand extreme heat (+140°) and extreme cold (-40°) without damaging the LCD. Relying on a patented Dynamic Thermal Transfer™ system to cool or warm internal components during extreme weather, the Xtreme™ displays remove the need for external filters, vents and exhaust fans. In addition, the patented design completely seals all internal components as well as the cable entry -- protecting the display from rain, sleet, snow, dust, insects and even pressure washing.

Far surpassing ordinary outdoor displays, the Xtreme™ displays have achieved IP68 and NEMA 6 ratings with true ease. The displays are maintenance free, cost-effective, and reliable even in the harshest of conditions.

Video Wall Mounts: At DSE, Peerless-AV will be showcasing a variety of video wall mounts, including the award-winning Full Service Video Wall Mount (DS-VW765-LAND), the Full Service Video Wall Mount with Quick Release (DS-VW765-LQR), the Full Service Thin Video Wall Mount with Quick Release (DS-VW755S), and the Full Service Video Wall Mount with Quick Release for large displays (DS-VW795-QR). These mounts offer integrators the ability to design video walls with ease and flexibility.

Peerless-AV will be showing custom kiosks offering various features such as printer, camera, and scanner, too.

Software-defined architecture and new economic model help enable rapid market expansion

BARCELONA, SPAIN--(Marketwired) - Mobile World Congress 2015 - Cisco (NASDAQ: CSCO) announced that AT&T, a leader in emerging devices and telematics services, will use its virtualized mobile Internet solution in helping to support AT&T's auto maker customers in providing advanced connected car services.

According to the Cisco® Visual Networking Index™ Global Mobile Data Traffic Forecast for 2014 to 2019, 11.5 billion mobile-ready devices and connections will be online over the next five years. Machine-to-machine (M2M) connections, which the forecast notes will soon outnumber people, will make up 28% of those connections.

M2M services, such as connected cars, require a fundamental transformation in the underlying mobile architecture -- combining virtual with physical networking resources. Virtual resources -- connectivity and network services enabled in software rather than hardware -- bring a lower entry cost, flexible deployment models, and rapid time-to-market. Carrier-grade performance and spare capacity come with the physical resources.

Supporting Quotes:

Cameron Coursey, Vice President, Product Development and Operations, Internet of Things, AT&T - "With this new software-driven mobile Internet solution incorporated in to our offerings, we can help to provide auto makers with advanced connected car services that give consumers more real-time communications services that positively impact the driving experience."

Kelly Ahuja, Senior Vice President, Service Provider Business, Products, and Solutions, Cisco - "Our collaboration with AT&T to implement virtual mobile network technology for connected cars marks a significant milestone for innovation in the connected car industry. We are transforming mobile architecture and delivering a powerful new network that marries virtual and physical resources. Virtualization is a means to an end. When coupled with physical technology, it affords new economies of scale that allow service providers like AT&T to innovate faster and deliver a better in-car experience."

About Cisco

Cisco (NASDAQ: CSCO) is the worldwide leader in IT that helps companies seize the opportunities of tomorrow by proving that amazing things can happen when you connect the previously unconnected.

Macomb, Michigan’s Emagine Entertainment location unveils Christie’s first interactive experimental signage

“The Christie THREE SIXTY capabilities and display technologies are backed by the company’s 85 years of innovative engineering and overall leadership in visual and audio industries. Our creative approach to experiential and multi-platform media infrastructures enable advertisers and brands to break through the clutter,” said Sean James, vice president of Christie’s Global Professional Services. “We have become a fully-integrated digital media company that can provide all the equipment, content experiences, content management systems, media sales and monitoring that corporations need to build a single display or a fully-connected, national display network, and everything in-between.”

Monetize Installations or Develop a Network

Media sales services are provided through Christie Experiential Networks (CEN), where clients can monetize their digital investments through sponsored digital content experiences and multi-platform strategic partnerships. Christie also invests in the development of niche experiential installations for high-traffic, brand and emotion-driven environments.

At the show, Christie will debut the Interactive One-Sheet and Digital Standee kiosks featuring Christie FHD651-T 65-inch and the Christie FHQ841-T 84 inch UHD LCD display panels.

Christie Velvet ‘Best New LED Wall’

A winner right out of the gate, Christie Velvet high brightness indoor LED tiles are easy to install and seamless to integrate. A wide viewing angle and ‘built-to-order’ 1.9 mm, 2.5 mm, 3 mm and 4 mm pixel pitches provide almost limitless design capabilities and installation options. Exceptional image clarity and 24/7 reliability make them equally at home in retail, hospitality, corporate lobbies, and control room environments. Backed by Christie’s industry-leading warranty and after sales services, they are part of the Christie family of display solutions that include projectors, LCD, Christie Velvet LED displays and Christie® MicroTiles® modular display system, some with tiled and touch-panel options. Complete solutions can include single or multiple display technologies to meet the most sophisticated display needs.

Christie Design Studio: An Interactive Retail and Event-Driven Mapping Kiosk

The Christie Design Studio is a turnkey solution in the theme of a ‘Point Of Sale’ style interactive kiosk. This solution demonstrates the potential creative expression that is possible with Christie display and software solutions working together, integrated into an effective interactive and immersive display experience.

Featuring a one-fifth scale model of a Corvette C7 Stingray created by Hyphen Services rapid prototyping, the Christie Design Studio brings the car to life through 3D, projection mapped photorealistic graphics on its body. The car is displayed within a diorama constructed of Christie MicroTiles, with multiple Christie projectors illuminating it, using Christie Twist™ LT for warping and blending. An interactive touch panel allows users to explore design options instantly and customize their vehicle to taste. Winner of a “Best Concept” award, the C7 display was developed in collaboration with Ventuz and 3DEXCITE. 3DEXCITE’s DELTAGEN software provides the backbone of this solution’s rendering pipeline and is built from the same tools many automakers use for digital review of new car designs, and development of marketing assets for web and print.

The Christie Design Studio can easily be deployed in many environments, such as retail settings where clothing can be mapped onto mannequins, or in a promotional event context to create buzz around a brand or new product. Advertisers can experiment with different graphics on various surfaces and structures before deploying in the field; corporations can project designs and logos on a scale model of buildings or interior spaces, such as lobbies, hallways and boardrooms, to test new concepts. For examples, download Christie’s “Book of Transformations,” with scores of projection mapping projects. The free downloadable app for iOS and Android devices features information about projection trends and technics, as well as case studies of some of the best projects delivered around the world using Christie projection technology.

“Experiential is growing everywhere; brands are embracing it, and consumers demand it,” said James. “The more effectively you can break through environmental noise and visual chaos and engage the customer, the more direct and immediate the benefit to the brand or advertiser.”

All KioWare products can be used to secure mobile devices such as tablets, desktops, and smartphones running Android or Windows Operating Systems.  KioWare kiosk software products lock down your device into kiosk mode, which secures the overall operating system, home screen and usage of applications.

Version 3.5 of KioWare for Android (Lite, Basic, & Full with Server) now supports Android Lollipop (5.0).    Users running Android 5.0 can now use KioWare to safely secure their tablets or phones to approved websites or applications, as determined by the device owner or administrator.  The configuration tool has also been updated to Android’s Material Light Design.  Version 3.5 of KioWare for Android also includes support for proxy settings, allowing for KioWare’s browser to be configured for use with an internet proxy server.  Also new to this version of KioWare is support for WebRTC on Android 5.0 devices.  This allows JavaScript to access WebRTC functions, providing access to the camera and microphone, ultimately allowing on-­‐page embedding of the video or camera.

when configured to do so.  KioWare Server allows for remote kiosk management, usage stats, kiosk health monitoring and remote content updating.

Released Today: Six Flags Case Study "Six Flags Standardizes on Ultra-Reliable ComQi EnGage to Deliver Targeted Guest Messaging and Promotion"

New York, NY (PRWEB) - ComQi highlights Six Flags Entertainment Corporation's, the world’s largest regional theme park company, heavy use of digital signage to meet marketing, sponsorship, partnership and operations objectives.

The Six Flags case study focuses on the companies media network of screens at its parks that reach guests in ride queues and high traffic areas. The network using ComQi’s EnGage content management platform. The park operator is now in the process of getting all of its concession menu systems on EnGage.

Six Flags Media Networks is a cross-platform media vehicle designed to deliver a mass audience and impressions for brand advertisers who work with the theme park operator. Media buys can include print and special events, but the big drivers for Six Flags are the screens around the parks seen by a huge daily, weekly and annual audience.

While most properties in today’s highly fragmented media landscape measure audience impression times by seconds or minutes, Six Flags delivers audience dwell times that can be counted in hours.

High quality networked displays are positioned in the queue areas for rides and attractions, entertaining park visitors while they wait.

“We deliver a lot of eyeballs, and the recall rates are super high,” says Six Flags’ Sean Andersen, who runs the Media Networks program as Director of Interactive Services.

Six Flags now has nearly 200 media players driving over 400 screens across the various parks, and that number will increase more than 50% as menu-boards are converted over from an older system and standardized on EnGage.

Along with LCD display monitors, Six Flags also runs programming on large outdoor LED screens in prominent areas.

BrightSign’s players will be working behind the scenes in dozens of booths, including BenQ America (booth #2242), Insteo (booth C2), Keyser Retail Solutions (booth #3031), Panasonic (booth #1519), Philips Signage Solutions (booth #1624), Planar Systems (booth #1018), Premier Mounts (booth #2521), Reflect Systems (booth #3132), Tightrope Media Systems (booth #2631), Wovenmedia (booth #2040) and many more integration and distribution partners.

On March 10 between 9am and 3:30pm, the tour will provide a limited number of attendees with customer-facing views and behind-the-scenes insights into some of the best digital signage installations in Las Vegas, both on and off the Strip. BrightSign’s work with Boulder Station Hotel and Casino will be one of a small handful of venues visited during the escorted, six-hour pre-show coach tour. In 2013, BrightSign was instrumental in Boulder Stations’ major renovation, which caught the eye of the DSE tour selection committee.

New technology innovation helps boost microSD™ card capacity by 1,000X in less than a decade
Consumers can now store 16 hours of Full HD video, 7,500 songs, 3,200 photos and more than 125 apps,1 all on a single removable card

SanDisk Ultra® microSDXC™ UHS-I 128GB Memory Card MOBILE WORLD CONGRESS, BARCELONA – SanDisk Corporation (NASDAQ: SNDK), a global leader in flash storage solutions, today announced the new 128GB2 SanDisk Ultra® microSDXC™ UHS-I memory card, the world’s largest capacity microSD card. Smaller than the size of a fingernail, the new SanDisk Ultra microSDXC card enables consumers to use their phones and tablets as if storage limitations were never a concern, allowing users to capture thousands of songs and photos, and hours of video on a single, removable card.

“SanDisk’s high-performance 128GB SanDisk Ultra microSDXC memory card will reshape the way users interact with their devices,” said Stuart Robinson, director, Handset Component Technologies, Strategy Analytics. “Until now, consumers had to spread out their content between multiple products because the memory on those devices was not able to hold enough data in one place. This 128GB microSD card is going to be popular as the preferred removable storage option, giving users fast, secure and reliable access to their personal data archives.”

Ideal for Today’s Smartphone and Tablet Users

Designed for Android™ smartphones and tablets, the new SanDisk Ultra microSDXC card provides consumers the highest storage capacity available in a removable form factor. Ideal for shooting Full HD video and high-quality pictures, the 128GB SanDisk Ultra microSDXC card delivers twice the speed of ordinary microSD memory cards3 and offers the highest video recording performance available.

“The new SanDisk Ultra microSDXC card again demonstrates how SanDisk continues to expand the possibilities of storage so that consumers can benefit from our latest technology advancements,” said Susan Park, director, retail product marketing, SanDisk. “With 128GB of removable storage, consumers will enjoy the freedom to capture and save whatever they want on a smartphone or tablet, without worrying about running out of storage space.”

An Enhanced SanDisk Memory Zone App – Smarter Ways to Organize, Optimize, and Backup Android Smartphones

A new version of the SanDisk® Memory Zone app (available on the Google Play™ store in beta) lets users easily view, access, and backup all of their files from their phone’s memory in one convenient place. As a part of the SanDisk Memory Zone app, SanDisk is releasing OptiMem™, a new feature that allows Android users to enhance their phone’s internal memory by automatically transferring some of their old photos and videos to their microSD card4. OptiMem will continuously monitor the user’s mobile device memory levels, and inform them whenever the internal memory falls below a pre-defined threshold.
Technological Breakthrough

Compared to when the microSD card format was first launched in 2004 with 128MB of capacity, SanDisk has increased storage capacity of microSD cards 1,000 times over in less than a decade with the 128GB SanDisk Ultra microSDXC card. To enable 128GB of storage on a removable microSD card, SanDisk developed an innovative proprietary technique that allows for 16 memory die to be vertically stacked, each shaved to be thinner than a strand of hair.

“The technology used to design the 128GB Ultra microSDXC card is well in line with what mobile users expect, and demonstrates SanDisk’s commitment to mobility,” said Christopher Chute, research director, Worldwide Digital Imaging, IDC. “Being able to fit this much capacity into a microSD card smaller than a fingernail is a game changer, and expands the possibilities of what people can do with their mobile devices. The 128GB Ultra microSDXC card frees users from constant concerns around storage limitations.”

Pricing and Availability

The family of SanDisk Ultra microSD memory cards is available worldwide in capacities ranging from 8GB to 128GB with MSRPs of $29.99 to $199.99. In the U.S., the 128GB SanDisk Ultra microSDXC card is available exclusively at BestBuy.com and Amazon.com.
SanDisk at Mobile World Congress

SanDisk will be displaying the new 128GB SanDisk Ultra microSDXC memory card in the company’s Mobile World Congress booth, Stand #7A61, located in Hall 7. The company will also be displaying the new iNAND Extreme™ embedded flash drive (announced separately today).

Latest-generation of Tightrope Carousel, BrightSign media players enable stunning videowall displays, and affordable yet dynamic large-scale networks

ST. PAUL, MINNESOTA - Tightrope Media Systems and BrightSign are evolving their partnership throughout 2015, with new innovations to more effectively power videowalls and large out-of-home networks on a tightly integrated, scalable and robust signage architecture. The two companies are leveraging each company's next-generation platforms within an integrated digital signage solution to enable these and additional benefits for their customers.
More Headlines

Last year at Digital Signage Expo, Tightrope and BrightSign announced a partnership to offer a very cost-effective enterprise solution with a full suite of tools. The combination of Tightrope's strengths in advanced content creation and management, and BrightSign's market-leading technology and signature reliability, results in a winning solution for any business or network operator to manage an affordable and sophisticated digital signage network.

This year at Digital Signage Expo, Tightrope and BrightSign will demonstrate seamless integration between Tightrope's Carousel digital signage system and BrightSign's next-generation XD2 players. The companies will exhibit two spaces apart (Tightrope at 2631; BrightSign at 2131), demonstrating how the integrated platform produces stunning videowall displays; as well as highly scalable and manageable networks for enterprise-level businesses and organizations.

New features of the integrated platform including portrait mode display and H.264 video streaming support to enhance visual capabilities for any signage network or application. Additionally, newly available media player synchronization for videowalls ensures that Carousel can drive content to multiple BrightSign players, which collectively deliver video and graphics across many panels for cohesive output and display of stunning visual content.

BrightSign XD2 networked media players, to be shown in the North America for the first time at Digital Signage Expo, all feature faster HTML5 and graphics processing; as well as Power over Ethernet (PoE) capability to simplify the powering of BrightSign players in remote locations. The complete XD2 portfolio includes:

  •  BrightSign XD232, a networked interactive player capable of full HD 1080p60 video decoding and simultaneous content playback from local, networked and streaming sources
  •  BrightSign XD1032, a networked multi-control interactive player that adds support for pure digital and surround sound audio
  •  BrightSign XD1132, a networked multi-control interactive player that adds support for live TV playback via an HDMI input and live TV player

Users of the integrated platform will also benefit from Carousel 6.5's faster processing power, which accelerates content rendering at the creation levels. The faster upfront rendering ensures quicker delivery to BrightSign media players across networks of any scale.

BrightSign CEO, Jeff Hastings, agrees that the partnership is beneficial for customers across all vertical markets. "Our respective companies are committed to technology innovation and continued integration work to provide our integrators, VAR's and end-users a leading solution for sophisticated and robust digital signage roll-outs in all shapes and sizes."

Eric Henry, signage solutions lead, Tightrope Media Systems, adds that the evolving relationship between the two companies includes cooperative research and development efforts to ensure continued innovation across the integrated Tightrope/BrightSign platform.

"We continue to bring more depth to our partnership, with dedicated project managers from both companies working together to develop new features and functionality for our combined customer base of resellers, integrators and end users," said Henry. "Digital Signage Expo is an excellent opportunity to demonstrate the most recent innovations from our combined efforts."
