    Innovative and engaging network will expand to 1,500 screens by 2017.

    London, England. January 27, 2015. The first and only provider of digital signage in washrooms across the United Kingdom, Captive Media Ltd, has converted its network to BroadSign International, LLC’s cloud-based software platform. After deploying 60 screens in London in 2014, another 160 will be installed in major regional cities over the next few months, contributing toward an expansion goal of 1,500 screens by 2017.

    Captive Media screens situated in washrooms of bars, pubs and clubs, reach a targeted audience of males between 18 and 35 years old. Each 12” LCD screen generates around 800 impressions per week for a total of just under 100,000 weekly impressions across the current network.

    “We conducted a review of the Top 30 digital signage software companies identified by DailyDOOH and chose BroadSign because it is best-in-class for ad-based networks and one of only a few that would allow us to distribute interactive games in addition to regular video assets,” said Gordon MacSween, Founder and Director at Captive Media.

    Network content is meant to entertain, promote and engage, with 10-second slots contributing to a 90-second loop, half of which is entertainment including RSS-fed pictorial news and the other contains ads. The interactive portion lasts about 55 seconds (the average dwell time) and contains branded content and games ideal for brands targeting a male, Gen Y audience, such as Guinness, Smirnoff and Captain Morgan.

    “BroadSign has built a reputation for being at the forefront of innovation in our industry and we do so to ensure our customers can focus on being leaders in their respective domains,” said Skip Beloff, Vice President of Sales at BroadSign. “By minimizing scheduling time, Captive Media can focus on venue and advertiser acquisitions to expand its highly successful network rather than occupy resources with software development.”

    Not only do Captive Media screens turn a minute of boredom into a unique experience for pub-goers, the network delivers directly attributable sales uplifts of 25% to 200% for featured brands and the venue.

    “There are so many factors involved in building and operating a new digital signage network that it’s a blessing to schedule ads simply and reliably, and delivering audited reports in an industry where measurability is normally an Achilles heel is an added bonus,” continued MacSween.

    To learn more about BroadSign’s digital signage software, book a meeting with a representative at Integrated Systems Europe or sign up for a free trial.

    Tel Aviv, Israel - Innovative digital signage solution provider Monitors Anywhere has announced it is to unveil the new version release of its Monitors AnyWhere solution at London’s education technologies trade show BETT2015.


    Users of digital signage solutions often find many of the infrastructures on the market unnecessarily complicated as well as being priced beyond their means. The Monitors AnyWhere solution uses a HDMI over LAN zero client technology to provide them with a simpler, greener, less expensive alternative, which requires only a single computer, together with one zero client per monitor in order to control all their digital displays. These benefits have made the original Monitors AnyWhere release a popular choice for educational environments, as well as proving to be the ideal solution within a range of other environments, including healthcare, hospitality and corporate communications.


    The new version release, Monitors AnyWhere v2, incorporates exciting new features, including the ability to control and monitor up to twenty digital signage channels across a wired or wireless LAN (Local Area Network) from a single workstation. Visitors to the show will also be able to see demonstrations of Monitors AnyWhere’s powerful new Video Wall capabilities.


    Monitors AnyWhere’s Product Manager Roy Tal believes that Monitors AnyWhere v2 offers educational establishments greater benefits than ever before. He said: “The new version includes many new features which makes it super easy for Universities, Colleges and schools to use our software to implement digital signage in their venues.”


    Visitors to BETT2015 can learn more about Monitors AnyWhere by visiting representatives from the company who will be there to welcome them and answer their questions at booth number C512 throughout the event, which runs from Wednesday 21 to Saturday 24 January 2015 at ExCeL London.

    BroadSign software powers the “King Channel” in over 50 Burger King locations across the Netherlands.

    Amsterdam, The Netherlands. January 12, 2015. The Amsterdam-based in-store marketing frontrunner, The Music Marketeers BV, is using BroadSign International, LLC’s cloud-based digital signage software to power the Burger King “King Channel”.

    Situated in over 50 of the fast food giant’s Dutch locations, the King Channel has an average of three 40” screens per restaurant that entertain and inform customers who choose to eat their meals onsite. Content composed of 70% music videos, 20% live video, 5% advertising and 5% information also assists in reinforcing Burger King’s branding and communications.

    UIE BlueSync enables next-generation connected experiences between the car, smart phone and consumer electronic devices through Bluetooth Low Energy

    UIEvolution, Inc., a leading global vertical cloud SaaS provider delivering solutions to consumer-focused enterprise companies in the Automotive, Cruise and Hospitality industries, today introduced UIE BlueSyncTM.

    UIE BlueSync enables any device with Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) to exchange information with the car’s in-dash head unit. This creates new opportunities for integrated smart vehicle interactions and provides all passengers a more enjoyable in-vehicle infotainment experience, which current systems can not provide.

    UIE BlueSync creates a secure network that supports connections with multiple smartphones and other BLE-equipped devices within the car and the home. UIE BlueSync eliminates the need for active device pairing, enabling handsets to interoperate with the vehicle’s head unit so that a driver or passenger can experience a more social and personalized experience. With UIE BlueSync, drivers can send driving directions from their phone to their in-dash navigation unit, view video from a BLE-equipped back-up camera on their phone or tablet or automatically set driver preferences, such as seat and mirror positions from their phone.

    “We want to make the vehicle’s head unit, smart devices and, of course, the smart phone work together seamlessly to provide greater convenience and fun for the driver and passengers,” UIEvolution CEO and president Chris Ruff said. “UIE BlueSync takes advantage of the power and growing ubiquity of Bluetooth Low Energy to bring new meaning to the concept of the connected car, transforming the vehicle’s head unit into a smart hub for nearby devices.”

    UIE BlueSync is the next step in UIEvolution’s connected car platform, promising a more robust driving experience by expanding the reach of the vehicle’s head unit beyond radio and navigation. Vehicle owners will have the ability to control which devices can access the head unit and what features those devices can access. Because it is based on industry standards, in the future UIE BlueSync will also make it possible to connect the car with other smart BLE devices. For example, a vehicle could automatically and securely check itself in for a service appointment when arriving at the dealership.

    UIE BlueSync will be compatible with all mobile devices that support Bluetooth Low Energy, including wearables, smart home devices and even the vehicle’s central computer. UIE BlueSync utilizes industry-standard security protocols to protect user data, as well.

    “UIE BlueSync offers unique capabilities for the near future of the connected car,” said Koji Hosaka, UIEvolution’s Japan President and GM of Automotive. “With the growing penetration of global standards like Bluetooth Low Energy, people increasingly expect their smart devices to talk to each other and the car is a natural part of that ecosystem. Our goal at UIEvolution is make those integrations as simple and intuitive as possible.”

    More information on UIEvolution’s products and solutions can be found here.

    About UIEvolution
    UIEvolution is a vertical cloud Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) provider specializing in highly scalable products and services across a broad range of markets, including Automotive, Cruise, Hotel, Retail and more.

    Fourth major award this year for innovative presentation/collaboration solution.


    Kramer Electronics is pleased to announce that VIA Collage was voted a Sound & Video Contractor 2014 Innovative Products Award winner. The award honors electronic and mechanical innovations in pro AV. Winners were chosen exclusively by Sound & Video Contractor’s readers.
    This is VIA Collage’s fourth major award this year. The product won Best in Show from Government Video Magazine, AV Technology Magazine and Sound & Video Contractor Magazine at InfoComm 2014 in Las Vegas.

    Kramer VIA Collage is a wireless presentation and collaboration solution that lets people easily get actual work done during meetings. Users can collaborate on and finalize projects in real time and save the results. With VIA Collage, meeting participants can view, edit, comment on, and share files between individuals or with all participants simultaneously.

    VIA Collage’s proprietary technology stands out in the market with full HD resolution (1080p60) wireless video streaming. Most other products do not allow full frame rate, causing videos to be choppy and difficult to watch. VIA Collage also features an HDMI input for external video sources such as a camera and DVD or Blu-Ray™ players.

    “We are getting more demand for BYOD and the VIA Collage fits that niche nicely,” said John Delmont, technical sales, VMI. “Many of the collaborative conference rooms we do for folks like Disney and Quiksilver are asking for wireless functionality. The VIA Collage lets them display laptops as well as iPads, iPhones and Droid devices. The security of the encrypted signal is also a plus,” added Delmont.

    VIA Collage removes common meeting annoyances such as searching for adapters or passing a cable to someone else and waiting for them to configure their laptop to display an image. When users connect to VIA Collage, in one click, their screen (on any PC, Mac, iOS, or Android device) instantly appears on the main display.

    Up to six user screens can be shown dynamically on a single main display. Up to 12 screens can be shown simultaneously on two displays. Users can also put the main display on their screen with the View Main Display option. This feature is especially useful for participants sitting far away from the main display.

    VIA Collage supports third-party applications such as Skype®, Go To Meeting®, Lync®, WebEx®, Microsoft Office(r), and more. The VIA Collage White Board lets users annotate over any file or video frame using their device’s keyboard, mouse or touch panel.

    Whether users are in the room, down the street or halfway around the world, VIA Collage lets meeting participants instantly connect and collaborate in real time.
