    Helping to create digital signage not easily forgotten, Videotel Digital has added a mega church to their list of happy clients. Crossroads Church in Ohio is one of the latest and greatest to sing the praises of the company’s VP71XD Industrial Digital Signage Media Player. Used for a dynamic annual event based on the power of prayer, the media player assured the inspirational and effectual flow of the event. Using its feature of rebooting on demand, should any glitch in power occur, the mid-western church with six locations happily reported the seamless functionality of the unit.

    Patrick Buescher, a representative of Crossroads Church, said of the VP71XD Industrial Digital Signage Media Player, “Annually, we operate what we call a ‘Prayer Experience’ which is best described as a temporary art installation. There are many rooms through this audio-guided tour that have different environments, some of which use projection mapping as an element. After running into issues with computer software playback, we chose to find the simplest solution available. We needed one box that just plays a video on a loop reliably. If there were a power outage, it would simply boot back up and do its job without intervention. We are very happy with the reliability, quality, and simplicity of the players we purchased from Videotel Digital. Each unit replaced $1800 in computers and software and have been significantly more reliable and user-friendly."

    The VP71XD has a built-in scheduler that allows users to display various content at specific times of the day. Looping without intervention, after it automatically turns on, the industrial media player has a proven lifespan of over six years without failure. To add to the product’s outstanding digital signage features, the VP71XD can make content, played from a USB cable or SD card, interactive as well. To do this, the media player will connect to an interplay module and LED push buttons, motion sensors and proximity sensors.

It is a church that values its heritage and its community and seeks to continue to make a powerful impact on the world.

    Summertime: normally a period of packed vacation schedules, empty business diaries, and little news.

    But this month has brought one of the biggest stories in the recent history of the digital out-of-home sector: the takeover of Scala, a long-established market leader, by Stratacache, which is perhaps less widely-known but equally renowned for the quality of its tech and its installations.
    It seems to have been welcomed, and rightly so, I think.
    Scala and Stratacache’s strengths are complementary rather than competitive, and the fact that this joining of giants involves two companies already deeply familiar with the field – rather than an outsider buying in – suggests their future offerings are likely to be even more finely attuned to the needs of the market.
    It’s early days yet, and it’ll be interesting to see how the combination pans out in practice: for example, to what extent will there still be two distinct product sets, or will everything eventually get merged into one mega-system?
    But for now, it’s safe to say that even if there were never good grounds to not buy Scala or Stratacache platforms, there are now even more reasons to put them on your shortlist.

    Peerless-AV®, the leader in digital signage solutions, is proud to announce the commemoration of the company’s 75th anniversary. Peerless-AV, originally known as Peerless Industries, first opened its doors in 1941 in Illinois and in honor of this achievement, the company will be celebrating its decades of innovation and adherence to its core values.

    The company’s famed early innovation, the first known CRT TV wall mount, also recently celebrated its 50th anniversary. Designed for various applications, including hospitality, restaurants and bars, and home entertainment, the Model 1100 supported 17" and 19" TV sets weighing up to 60 lbs. It also featured a swivel bracket with the ability to turn 40 degrees.

    “Reaching these milestones are important moments for us at Peerless-AV and we are happy to celebrate this anniversary with our customers and partners in the AV space,” said John Potts, President, Peerless-AV. “We are thankful for the opportunity to continue providing solutions to our loyal customer base and we look forward to another 75 years of developing reliable and innovative solutions.”

    In the 75 years since Peerless-AV opened its doors, the company has celebrated many milestones, from extending its product line to include mounting hardware in 1978, to opening a 38,000 square foot plant in Mexico in 1995, to launching the Jumbo 2000 mount in 1999 and the Plasma, LCD, and projector mount lines in 2003, to creating the Xtreme™ Outdoor Soundbar, the first powered outdoor soundbar on the market, in 2016.

    2009 marked the launch of major developments for the company with the acquisition of BBG in the UK. The following year the company opened its Aurora, Illinois location, launched its first non-mount product (HD Flow™ Wireless AV System), debuted video wall mounts, and rebranded itself as Peerless-AV.

    In the years since, while the company continues to develop mounts, Peerless-AV has added an Emerging Technology Group (2011), launched the PeerAir™ (2012), acquired Cill™ Technologies (2013), an outdoor TV manufacturer, and launched a kiosk division (2014), expanding its repertoire of expertise to encompass a multitude of AV technologies. And, with 75 years under its belt, Peerless-AV is proud of its unrivaled reputation for quality AV innovations, as the very word “peerless” suggests.

    “Marking the 75th anniversary of our company, a place that has stayed true to its roots since the beginning, brings a great deal of pride to our team,” said Nick Belcore, Executive Vice President, Peerless-AV. “We are one of the only manufacturers in the AV industry that has not been acquired, merged, or shut down, and that speaks volumes to our ability to maintain our vision of providing quality manufacturing, exceptional customer service, and pioneering products that have stood the test of time.”

     Videotel is excited to announce their new partnership with Turtle Beach Corporation to use the Company’s revolutionary HyperSound® directed audio technology. The two companies have linked arms to provide the retail marketplace with interactive solutions using HyperSound directional speakers that give a 3D audio effect in a specific location, essentially making the listener feel like they’re wearing a surround sound headphone without actually wearing any headphone at all. With HyperSound directional audio integrated into Videotel's interactive digital signage solutions, Videotel will now be able to create private listening zones tied to specific consumer products. By directing audio to intended individuals only, multiple audio zones can be enabled without disrupting other displays. Leveraging directional audio has already proven to be game-changing in the marketspace. Using Turtle Beach’s HyperSound technology with their SENSE Solution, Videotel also enjoyed one of the busiest booths on the trade show floor at DSE 2016.

    Perfect for retailers, system integrators and a myriad of organizations, HyperSound directional speakers and Videotel solutions increase the effect to attract consumers to a display, enhance engagement and increase dwell time. Essential for exhibits, the immersive experience boosts the likelihood of passersby seeking the product advertised.

    Targeting advertising or informational messaging with an effectiveness not seen in the marketplace thus far, Videotel interactive solutions and HyperSound directional speakers are symbiotic, and a great technology-driven step forward for the market. Thus, Videotel now sells Turtle Beach’s HyperSound directional speakers both separately and as bundles.
