IAdea Deutschland GmbH offers suitable digital signage total solutions
Modernizing libraries with digital signage
(PresseBox) (Schwentinental, 03.12.19) Libraries are dusty relics. One would think in times of the ubiquitous internet. However, firstly, this is by no means the case and secondly, libraries can be made more vibrant and attractive than ever before with digital signage.
With digital signage, libraries and bookstores can be modernized in many ways: Starting with info points and a wayfinding system to the digitization of the cafeteria and the presentation as well as interactive execution of numerous library-specific services or corresponding advertising.
"With digital signage, we enable the audiovisual transport of informal or entertaining content as an experience that creates an attractive and magical effect on the viewer or user," says the managing partner, Björn Christiansen, of IAdea Germany. In line with this credo, the German digital signage pioneer offers the necessary portfolio from a single source.
For example, smart signboards for clear signage, the intuitive info points, digitization of the cafeteria and the optimized wayfinding system. All these displays with their different form factors are controlled via robust media players designed for 24/7 operation, which can be integrated either in a digital signage network, in an existing LAN or via wireless. Content creation and playout can be time-controlled locally, remotely or from the cloud.
IAdea Germany offers smart signboards in sizes from 10 to 98 inches. The most important features here, in addition to the robust design for monitored 24/7 continuous operation, are above all the "visible" properties such as a high resolution of up to 4K, a brightness of up to at least 300 nit and the latest wide-angle technology for optimized viewing up to an angle of 178 degrees from any perspective.
In addition to WiFi-only, standalone and HD players, the current flagship in IAdea Germany's portfolio is the "Smart Player 4K Cloud".
This high-end player for digital signage, chosen as an example, allows "True 4K" at any time, in any format and from any angle. It is the perfect media player for companies, stationary retail, the hotel and hospitality industry, the education sector, for law firms or practices, and wherever colorful, brilliant content plays a central role.
It is suitable for digital signage with signboards or any type of HDMI display at all levels in the company, centralized cloud control of kiosk systems, and in general for multiple displays of information, presentations, services, advertising, menus, events, etc.
Equipped with quad-core processors, the "Smart Player 4K Cloud" is a robust appliance, both physically and in terms of hardware. For example, the normally wear-sensitive flash memories are optimized for 24/7 operation. The Android operating system used is also immune to failure and compromise through additional integrated security solutions.
In short, according to Björn Christiansen, Managing Director of IAdea Germany, "The Smart Player 4K Cloud is designed for year-round continuous operation and also incorporates a self-healing mechanism to remain active without intervention from personnel. This allows on-site staff to focus entirely on their actual tasks and not have to worry about the technology." For extensive projects, the German digital signage specialist offers appropriate project consulting, stands by with qualified technical support and offers an advanced replacement service or takes over the complete operation as a managed service.
Content can be created, monitored and controlled conveniently and cost-effectively with IAdea Germany's own CRM system "DS-Channel", which is provided from the cloud in German data centers. DS-Channel is free of charge for the first three years, is hosted in the IAdea-Germany cloud and can be operated at any time from any location. These are among the most important advantages of cloud computing and why IAdea Germany provides its own native digital signage cloud communication platform with "DS-Channel".
DS-Channel can be used to control, manage and monitor individual media players or signboards of the new cloud generation from IAdea Deutschland as well as to set up extensive digital signage networks centered on the cloud.
The DS-Channel digital signage communication platform is free of charge for the first three years in conjunction with the new DS-Channel media players and signboards from IAdea Deutschland. After that, the license for DS-Channel costs only 36 euros per player and year.
The advantages of DS-Channel are manifold: All digital signage content is created centrally in the cloud via the content management system and played out from there to the corresponding media players and signboards via the playlists. This means that no technical staff are required on site and content can be created, controlled and monitored from any location and at any time.
Together with the new high-performance media players and signboards of the DS-Channel series from IAdea Germany, DS-Channel can be used to set up a central digital signage platform for almost any application across all industries. The underlying content management system of DS-Channel is so intuitive that even non-digital signage specialists can "conjure up" sophisticated content on their digital advertising spaces. The numerous ready-made design templates are also helpful. The robust media players support all common screen sizes and formats as well as kiosk systems and video walls.
In addition to the advantages of the cloud and its free connection as well as the intuitive content management system, DS-Channel offers numerous other benefits, including
- the suitability for both single systems, small networks up to highly scalable cloud-centric digital signage networks with thousands of sites and displays,
- the ability to play out campaigns with meta-data based scheduling,
- intelligent, dynamic hot folders based on meta-data tagging for folders or content,
- the creation of XML templates for importing data sources from other systems,
- support for beacons with distance and motion sensors to switch content,
- the creation of playout reports and overviews of device availability,
- support for interactive kiosk applications,
- additional widgets for weather or integration of social network channels and
- a QR code generator to automatically display dynamic links as QR codes.
"The strengths of our media players and signboards come into their own with our next generation digital signage platform DS-Channel. Fail-safety, robustness and longevity of the hardware paired with the centralized and time as well as location-independent management from the cloud, massively reduces the effort for maintenance and care of a digital signage network and does not require specialized staff on site nor for the creation and distribution of the digital signage content," explains Kiel-based entrepreneur Dipl.-Kfm. Björn Christiansen. "This makes the new DS channel digital signage solutions from IAdea Germany ideally suited for enhancing the brand experience and improving consistent brand communication in stationary retail across all industries," Christiansen continues. The same applies equally for informing employees in larger corporate networks, for general information, for queue optimization or also generally for entertaining visitors in hotels, hospitals, restaurants or practices of any kind.
