    Designed for grocery and convenience stores, the iDOOR® represents the only digital offering for cooler and freezer door lineups that connects the shopper, message and product at the point of purchase

    Sarasota, FL – November 18, 2015Real Digital Media, provider of the enterprise class NEOCAST® digital signage platform, and Anthony®, a Dover Company, are pleased to introduce the iDOOR®, a merchandising solution which incorporates a media player and transparent LCD embedded within cooler or freezer doors to play full motion video at the point of purchase.

    The iDOOR, powered by NEOCAST, successfully combines digital technology and in-store merchandising strategies to deliver contextually relevant messaging for improved shopper engagement and conversion. This patented technology delivers high-definition visual promotions that target and connect with shopper lifestyles and demographics. The solution provides opportunities for increased shopper engagement by placing actionable messages in the line of sight of shoppers, along their path to purchase and ultimately at their point of decision.

    Ken Goldberg, CEO of Real Digital Media, states, “iDOOR is poised to transform cooler and freezer merchandising across convenience stores, grocery and fuel stations, and places digital signage at the core of strategic planning for retailers and brands in this space. This solution leverages the strengths of Anthony and Real Digital Media, considerable engineering insights, patented IP and deep market knowledge. The result is a high value application of digital signage that appeals to retailers and their vendor partners, as well as the consumer.”

    Anthony is a manufacturer and solutions provider of glass refrigerator and freezer doors, lighting systems and display equipment for use in commercial refrigeration systems. Their patented iDOOR is the only digital solution for cooler and freezer door lineups that connects the shopper, message and product at the same time, allowing retailers to understand and engage with their customers on a more relevant and personal level.

    Carre’ Bistline, Anthony’s Director, Business Development, Digital Signage Solutions, states, “the iDOOR revolutionizes how retailers promote and merchandise their brands, engage with shoppers and increase overall sales. The solution artfully pairs digital signage with how shoppers navigate through a store and optimizes messaging along the path to purchase. We think the iDOOR is the best solution for reaching the shopper at the point of decision with relevant messages, and will positively impact in-store conversions.”


    A national convenience store chain recently tested the Anthony iDOOR for a 3-month pilot program. Results from the program showed the iDOOR increased cooler door traffic by 13%, and increased the number of cooler door purchases by 7%. (src: http://www.anthonyintl.com/idoor/case-studies.html)


    The iDOOR is available now in cooler, freezer and stand-alone glass door applications, and is available in various transparent screen sizes and finishes.

    Ping HD is pleased to announce the release of version 2.0 of our award winning EngagePHD™ web based digital signage content management platform.

    Key to version 2.0 is the addition of the new ‘Dashboard’ view which strengthens the network monitoring capability of your Digital Signage network. The ‘Dashboard’ view pulls back near real-time screenshots from your LG webOS displays, Samsung SSP displays, Windows or Android Players along with key display/player information such as serial number, temperature etc… which enables users to see at a glance exactly what content is showing on any screen and therefore removes any guess work.

    Kevin Goldsmith, Director of Digital Media Operations says “As we push the boundaries of what can be achieved with SoC (System-on-a-Chip) based displays from LG & Samsung, we’ve proven that you do not need external media players and have reduced potential support issues by up to 90%. The Dashboard combined with automated email alerts provides the confidence our customers need to ensure that their Digital Signage networks are doing exactly what they should be doing.”

    An API is provided as part of this release to allow the Dashboard information to be used in 3rd party system management platforms.

    Our panelist will share their experience with:

    -What type of hardware and size of screen is best.

    - What is the most effective way to interact with the system to book a room - touch screen, smartphone, browser?

    LENEXA, Kan. (October 5, 2015) – In collaboration with Keywest Technology’s creative department, Keywest released this month a how-to guide for digital signage content. The white paper, Digital Signage Jump Start Content Guide, provides more than 20 years of collective experience in digital content tips and tricks. The guide is designed to help beginners get started with their best foot forward, yet it is packed with enough content know-how to provide intermediate users helpful advice.

    According to the company president, Nick Nichols, the guide is intended to provide the essential keys to ‘jump start’ or unlock digital content planning, which he said is the foundation for a content strategy.

    When asked why a content strategy is important, Nichols explained, “It’s easy to treat a digital sign like a billboard, which becomes just another place to throw up information. This kind of approach does not typically win viewers. Our content guide offers a logical path to getting communication results that have a return on objectives.”

    The guide doesn’t concern itself with specific graphic arts information, which is readily available in many published books, online courses, and is a standard curriculum in most schools. Instead, the guide offers key advantages, tips, and strategies to more effectively communicate using digital signs. Key topics include:

    • Why Content Is Important
    • Why Sticky Content Matters To Your Audience
    • Why Content Engagement Matters If You’re a Marketer
    • Ten Content Tactics For Managers
    • Digital Signage Content Strategies
    • Digital Signage Deployment Strategies
    • Why Digital Signage Placement Matters.

    Regardless if you are a digital signage wannabe or a novice user, Keywest Technology aims to jump-start the skills of communication enthusiasts by offering expert digital signage advice free of charge. The guide is available immediately on the company’s website (www.KeywestTechnology.com) under “White Papers.”

    Pigeon Forge, TN Fee Hedrick Entertainment Group specializes in providing a great customer experience with its many comedy shows. No detail is too small, so when the group recently chose Tanked to install a beautiful aquarium, it turned to Videotel to provide a streaming media player to complete the effect.

    According to Fee Hedrick's technical director, Marshall Whaley, the company was previously using a computer with a GOM player for playback of the impressive tank's fire display. "I had to pretty up the fire effect for my boss," said Whaley. "After a little help from Videotel, I was able to get the right unit and the right format."

    People often think of digital signage as an informational display with rolling text or interactive solutions as a kiosk where customers manipulate a computer display. As Fee Hedrick's technical team learned, digital signage and interactive solutions have a multitude of applications in the field.

    For the realistic fire display, Videotel's VP71 Industrial Digital Media Player fit the entertainment company's requirements for a high-quality display coupled with consistent reliability. The VP71 is more than a digital signage player. It offers the ability to seamlessly loop video around the clock from a USB port or an SD card. The player has a proven lifespan of more than four years. It's truly a hands-off, worry-free video player. Even in the event of a power outage, the VP71 will resume playback automatically when power returns to the player, without any manual interaction.

    Impressed with what you see? Videotel has a digital signage solution for any challenge you are facing. Our top-of-the-line products will give you the highest quality displays coupled with the peace of mind that your content will play on whether you are there or not. For more information on any of our high-quality industrial digital media players or interactive technology, visit the Videotel Inc. website at http://www.videoteldigital.com or call us at (800) 878-4056.

    Lake Elsinore, CA You need special equipment to be special. That’s why Audio Video Specialists sought out Videotel when they discovered the need for reliable equipment to keep up with their business needs and those of their clients. With some of their clients needing eight to 12 hours of constant looping content seven days a week, a reliable system is needed to meet their looping content demands. As the business can't continue replacing DVD players, Audio Video Specialists relies on Videotel's HD2600 DVD player to keep clients happy.

    The Videotel HD2600 DVD player is an industrial-grade DVD player strictly designed for auto looping playback. With the ability to automatically power on, play, and repeat, the content can seamlessly play without interaction, even in the event of a power loss. In addition to this, the offering of high-definition quality for signage solutions puts the Videotel HD2600 DVD player in high demand for many businesses, no matter how large or small they may be.

    Casey Elliott of Audio Video Specialists states, "Our client also has a proprietary DVD-burning format that many other DVD players won't read. We also integrate Videotel into new HDMI systems and older composite or component video systems, and Videotel has all the connections we need."

    With Videotel's HD2600 DVD player providing Audio Video Specialists the reliability and formatting its clients demand, the company no longer has to worry about replacing DVD players that are unable to keep up with its business.

    This major milestone is a direct reflection of its innovation in commercial digital signage products and its simplistic creative genius in digital signage solutions. For 35 years, Videotel has been the leader in developing audio video products and next generation digital signage solutions.

Enhancing the interactive experience, the IPM was a major hit in many vertical markets, including retail, hospitality, healthcare.

    Videotel has been a shining exhibitor at many industry shows and expos. Rave Publications named its winners of the Digital Signage Champs at the Digital Signage Expo 2015, and Videotel was awarded best new interactive digital signage solution for its revolutionary product – Elevate. With it stylish design and unique technology, the Elevate solution stood out from the pack. Customers can display a product on top of the elevate box and once the product is lifted, content is triggered to the screen within the display. Multiple video files may be launched with each lift off the sensor.

    Videotel unveiled its VP70 XD industrial media player at the InfoComm Show. This industrial grade digital media player seamlessly loops files for a smooth, visual appealing viewing experience. It also features HDMI resolution, multi-function remote control, video cables, multiple transition options and a USB card. Impressed with its design and function, Triple E Recreational Vehicles selected it for its digital signage purposes and its annual trade show.

    Other Videotel flagship products include the HD2600 industrial and medical grade looping DVD player and the VP71 industrial grade interactive digital media player. The HD2600 is designed to automatically power on, auto loop, auto repeat and auto play without any manual interaction. It’s been proven to operate continuously 24/7 for 4+ years and is the most durable DVD player on the market. The VP71 interactive digital signage media player can become an interactive experience by adding LED push buttons, motion sensors, proximity sensors or weight sensors.
