    Dolev Family
    Dolev is a new family of high-quality bi-amplified studio-grade speakers that deliver clear and balanced flat response with low THD even at high volume. Dolev speakers are designed for control rooms, editing studios, sports bars, music clubs, high-end facilities, and home entertainment.

    Dolev offers three different models: 5.25” with a 50W amplifier, 6.5” with 75W amplifier and 8” with 100W amplifier.

    New mounts offer superior display alignment and seamless installation


    AURORA, Ill. – November 12, 2014 – Peerless-AV®, the leader in digital signage and video wall mounts, is excited to announce the addition of four new SmartMount™ Digital Menu Board Ceiling Mounts to its current product line of SmartMount™ Menu Board Wall Mounts.

    Ideal for use in quick service restaurants, transportation, convention centers, and retail locations, Peerless-AV’s new SmartMount™ Menu Board Ceiling Mounts provide a solution for any application.

    Peerless-AV’s line of SmartMount™ Menu Board Ceiling Mounts include:
    DS-MBY942L-2X1: landscape configuration for 40"-42" displays with overall mounting hole patterns 1769 x 400mm (69.65"W x 15.75"H)
    DS-MBY942L-3X1: landscape configuration for 40"-42" displays with overall mounting hole patterns 2658 x 400mm (104.65"W x 15.75"H)
    DS-MBY947L-2X1: landscape configuration for 46"-48" displays with overall mounting hole patterns 1960 x 400mm (77.15"W x 15.75"H)
    DS-MBY947L-3X1: landscape configuration for 46"-48" displays with overall mounting hole patterns 2944 x 400mm (115.90"W x 15.75"H)

    Unlike its competitors, Peerless-AV’s SmartMount™ Menu Board Ceiling Mounts offer vertical adjustment on each universal display adaptor bracket for post-install leveling and height adjustment fine-tuning. The SmartMount™ Menu Board Ceiling Mounts also offer connecting wall plates that create a continuous mounting surface for ease of display alignment. With a quick connect latch that automatically engages the wall plate, installers are provided with a speedy set-up and peace of mind.

    Included security features deter tampering and theft, and the horizontal adjustment allows installers to create a menu board with a seamless appearance. The mounts also feature continuous and Increlok™ tilt options, assuring that all displays are tilted at the same angle for precise alignment.

    For ease of use, the mounts are wider than anything else on the market, making them compatible with a wide range of display makes and models.

    “Many of our customers expressed the need for digital signage in spaces where wall mounts were not an option,” said John Potts, President, Peerless-AV. “With our SmartMount™ Menu Board Ceiling Mounts, customers have the flexibility to not only include digital signage in once inaccessible areas, but they can do so easily and securely.”

    To provide complete flexibility for customers, Peerless-AV also offers an accessory menu board frame. The ACC-MBF allows for an installer to use an existing wall mount and connect it to a column for ceiling installation. For installs where the customer wants a longer menu board, Peerless-AV offers the ACC-MBC, which allows two menu board ceiling mounts to be combined to create a longer array.

    Peerless-AV®’s SmartMount™ Menu Board Ceiling Mounts are currently available through Peerless-AV direct sales representatives and authorized distribution network.

    Since 2001 Acquire Digital have gone from strength to strength achieving global success in the Digital Signage and Kiosk industry. As part of the Working Solutions Ltd - which also offer solutions to vertical markets, such as the Wayfinder, Digital Menu Boards and Taxi Signage - Acquire Digital was the original digital signage software package designed by the team and was the first of its kind, allowing end users to build comprehensive digital signage networks.


    Today, Acquire Digital boasts an impressive product portfolio geared towards the creation of interactive, immersive experiences and are edging towards global recognition for being a leading digital experience and visual communications company.

Our internal teams work very closely together ensuring that solutions work efficiently to create maximum impact. We are lucky to have such talented teams of people at Acquire with unrivalled proficiency in User Experience (UI interfaces).’


    To reflect this creative flair and expertise in visual communications the company have recently undergone an extensive re-brand expanding across all communication platforms, website and products.

    Traditional system structure for digital signage was PC based, each client display must be combined with one media engine or PC Box embedded OS, total cost for deployment is higher, also consumed heavy power electricity and not easy to upgrade and maintenance.

    The innovative e-Signage+ Master has changing the system structure on hardware: the PC based media player been replaced by Zero Client Adaptor; the host server is replaced by an industrial grade media server. It means : reducing your electricity usage and lowing whole system carbon footprint .

    Innovative Solution for In-Store Audio Featured in Massive Roll-out of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Retail Displays


    SAN DIEGO, Nov. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Turtle Beach Corporation (NASDAQ: HEAR), a leading innovator of audio products and solutions, today announced the company's HyperSound® virtual reality audio solution has been implemented in Activision's Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare retail displays. The displays have been installed in 987 Best Buy locations in North America. The installation represents the largest implementation of virtual reality audio in a retail setting.

    "This marquee implementation of HyperSound will change the way retailers think about retail audio," said Rodney Schutt, SVP and General Manager of HyperSound. "This is the first, large-scale implementation of a new generation of retail audio that is unlike anything that has been done before."

    HyperSound audio emitters and a sub-woofer are integrated into the base of the retail display. They create a zone of audio that encompasses anyone standing in front of the display. The quality of the audio is three dimensional, creating a virtual reality effect that is similar to wearing a pair of surround sound headsets. The engineers at Turtle Beach have recently developed a new approach to HyperSound's digital signal processing that creates a more immersive, three-dimensional audio experience.

    HyperSound represents a revolutionary new way to deliver targeted brand and product messages in store. Site-specific, targeted point-of-sale messaging can provide a number of benefits to retailers, including increased engagement and dwell time, and increased average revenue per customer. Because HyperSound creates a controlled sound zone, multiple displays can gain the benefits of audio in the same store without conflicting. To date, the use of audio with displays and kiosks has been limited by the noise bleed associated with traditional speakers, and the sound reflection and low volumes associated with earlier versions of directional audio.

    Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is the latest installment of the incredibly successful Call of Duty® franchise. Call of Duty title launches have become an annual entertainment event and retail phenomenon, with fans across the world heading to stores for midnight launch events.

    Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, developed by Sledgehammer Games, envisions the powerful battlegrounds of the future, where both technology and tactic have evolved to usher in a new era of combat for the franchise. Advanced Warfare launches November 4 for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation®3, PlayStation®4, and PC.

    The Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare kiosks were installed in Best Buy locations during the last two weeks of October.

    ACTIVISION, CALL OF DUTY, and CALL OF DUTY ADVANCED WARFARE are trademarks of Activision Publishing, Inc.

    Two-in-one solution is more cost-effective and offers high quality scaling

    Kramer Electronics announced today the release of the VP−427 Receiver/Scaler, a cost−effective two−in−one HDBaseT™ receiver solution with a built−in scaler.

    The compact Kramer VP−427 reduces complexity while increasing reliability. The solution also offers a significantly lower price point than standard two−unit solutions. The VP−427 can scale input video to the native resolution of the HDMI receiver or any other resolution (up to 1080p). The unit also supports bidirectional IR and bidirectional RS−232.

    The Kramer VP−427 Receiver/Scaler receives an HDBaseT signal through an HDBaseT twisted pair cable and converts it back to HDMI, IR and RS−232. A bidirectional RS−232 port lets users embed and de−embed control commands in the HDBaseT data stream. Infrared input and output ports let users control devices over the HDBaseT data stream. The unit includes embedded audio support.

    The Kramer VP−427 up− or down−scales the picture to match the precise resolution of the HDMI monitor. The VP−427 offers ProcAmp control for contrast, brightness and R, G, B level/gain. Setup and adjustment is easy with an on−screen display, accessible via front−panel buttons.

    BroadSign and Blue Bite will collaborate on digital signage networks’ mobile strategies and campaigns.

    New York, NY. November 3, 2014. Blue Bite, the Mobile Standard in OOH™, and BroadSign International, LLC, top provider of cloud-based digital signage software, have announced a partnership intended to simplify and enhance the mobile component of digital signage campaigns.

    As mobile is incorporated into an increasing number of digital signage programs, BroadSign and Blue Bite will harness the power of the former’s robust content management platform and the latter’s mTAG technology to deliver mobile marketing solutions in North America and worldwide.

    “Blue Bite’s method of bridging the gap between digital and physical worlds through mobile is second to none, so it’s no surprise that its dominant market share consists of many BroadSign customers requiring reliable and innovative suppliers,” said Daniel Parisien, Vice President of Marketing and Strategy at BroadSign. “It is important that our partners offer the same level of quality and service that BroadSign has built its reputation upon – and the culture fit with Blue Bite is definitely present.”

    In addition to sharing premium customers like Adspace Networks, Pikasso and JCDecaux, BroadSign and Blue Bite have an aligned vision regarding the future of digital out-of-home. Both companies believe in a technology-agnostic approach to mobile, with Blue Bite implementing the best fitting set of mobile onramps for each deployment and BroadSign functioning as a standardized and trusted means of content scheduling, display and reporting.

    "BroadSign is a leader in the digital signage industry and we feel that a combined approach will offer a best-in-class platform for the digital out-of-home community,” said Mikhail Damiani, CEO at Blue Bite. “Furthermore, BroadSign gives us the ability to scale our footprint and deliver a larger mobile audience to Blue Bite’s brand and agency partners."

    Blue Bite and BroadSign are optimistic that the partnership will promote the benefits of allocating advertising dollars to DOOH media, from more effective consumer engagement to increased ROI. In offering advertisers the seamless ability to plan and execute campaigns with real time analytics and performance reports, the companies foresee rises in acceptance of and demand for integrated digital signage and mobile solutions – a trend that will further aid in the integration of current OOH and mobile practices for media agencies.

    Such aspirations complement the Digital Place Based Advertising Association’s “video everywhere” approach to digital signage, an organization of which Blue Bite and BroadSign are members. Representatives from both parties will be present at the 2014 Video Everywhere Summit.

    Initial deployment consists of 50 double-sided totems in 17 malls across Croatia.

    Zagreb, Croatia. Oct. 28, 2014. Croatian digital signage network, Go2Digital, LLC, has selected BroadSign International, LLC’s cloud-based digital signage software to power its screens in shopping malls – the first network of its kind in the country.

    The initial deployment consists of 50 double-sided totems with 65” screens across the top 17 malls in Croatia. Reaching over 2.2 million unique visitors each month, Go2Digital’s network has more viewers than the nation’s leading online portal and most-watched TV channel.

    “BroadSign’s focus on ad-based DOOH networks and great references are what initially drew Go2Digital to its platform,” said Edin Pasalic, CEO and Co-Founder at Go2Digital. “Now that we’ve completed deployment, BroadSign’s automation allows us to minimize operating costs by maintaining a large network with one employee and maximize advertising opportunities by using criteria to quickly target campaigns to specific screens. These features demonstrate just why BroadSign is the number one provider of digital signage software.” 

    Running an ad-based model, Go2Digital accommodates the short shopping mall dwell time with 90-second loops divided into 15-second slots. Advertisers like Samsung, Unilever and Croatia’s leading telecommunications provider, Hrvatski Telekom, target specific audiences at certain times of the day through unique and interactive campaigns that complement or serve as a substitute to national TV and online outlets.

    “The BroadSign platform is a robust and reliable means for enterprise networks to push the envelope when it comes to widespread advertising campaigns that rely on hyperlocal targeting,” said Skip Beloff, Vice President of Sales at BroadSign. “Go2Digital understands the Croatian market and we look forward to enabling its establishment of the largest national DOOH network as it expands into additional shopping malls and verticals.”

    Go2Digital plans on bringing screens into supermarkets, transit venues and city networks, with a goal of 500 screens throughout Croatia in the near future. “We are following in the footsteps of major global network operators in terms of our regional strategy, verticals and of course, selecting the industry standard for software,” added Pasalic.

    Greece-based telecommunications company, WIND Hellas, recently launched a new store that promises to transform the way their customers shop.


    As one of the largest telecommunication companies in Greece, WIND Hellas has opened its first new concept store in Marousi, Athens with an impressive launch. The newly refurbished store utilises several digitally interactive displays in a bid to reduce paper, eliminate pushy face-to-face sales and ultimately enhance the experience for the shopper.


    In a dramatic drive to provide shoppers with a higher level of autonomy WIND have enlisted help from Acquire Digital to develop advanced digital point of sale (POS) systems that assist with the sales of handsets, mobile phone plans and broadband.


    Mr. Kostas Tsaganos, WIND Chief Commercial Officer, at the launch said, ‘With the launch of our new stores we re-introduce WIND into the Greek retail market. We have completely changed the customer experience by creating a store that is digital, innovative, unique in the Greek market, and at the same time, is human-centric and friendly. Our investment will boost the market and at the same time will provide the Greek customer with a retail experience of international level.’ Customers can now easily determine product suitability by using the interactive POS display, comparing key features like camera spec and phone memory while simultaneously obtaining a comparison of monthly charges.


    The store now boasts a large touch screen POS wall, which allows customers to browse handsets and tariffs; and an innovative Top 5 table top which displays physical mobile handsets in the more traditional fashion but plays engaging videos when handsets are picked up by customers. Neil Farr, Managing Director at Acquire Digital said, ‘one of the major challenges for the team was primarily understanding the vast array of tariffs available in Greece. We had to find a way of presenting these in a simpler format while providing customers with the ability to discover the best options and deals for them.’


    The POS wall is powered by the advance Acquire software engine and underwent further development to create a unique solution designed for the project. The end-user interface, comprising of an easy-to-up-date database was also specifically designed by the Acquire team to enable shop staff to make easy and instant changes to data displayed on the digital screens.


    Neil Farr attended the opening of store and added, ‘this is a great investment for WIND and one that will set them apart from its competitors. At a time when other UK-based mobile phone companies are going into administration it is clear that mobile phone companies are not exempt from falling behind as a result of failing to move with the times. By working with us WIND have succeeded in making their in-store experience much more appealing by empowering the customer.’


    WIND will continue to work collaboratively with Acquire Digital to roll out the concept store across the country by the end of 2015.
