Signagelive showcases Lift and Learn technology at Integrate 2017 in Melbourne

 

In this video from the recent Integrate show in Melbourne, Australia, Aferdita Qesku, Sales Director Global at Signagelive, demonstrates how IAdea digital signage hardware and Signagelive can be used to deliver ‘Lift and Learn’ solutions for retail.

Signagelive exhibited at Integrate with Quantum Sphere, to showcase solutions and products to AV technicians and corporate end users, meet with buyers, integrators and distributors in the Australian retail sector.

In the example shown, when beauty products are lifted from the shelf the appropriate video explaining the product is displayed. When multiple products are lifted from the shelf, a comparison video is shown allowing the viewer to compare and decide which product is for them.

Lift and learn applications is a great way to let customers find out more about your best sellers or to compare different items before deciding which one to buy. Customers are provided with more information about the product they are looking at, this could be anything from the price, to a story about the product, or the other options available within the store of that product (maybe a different size or colour) and where these can be found.

Another example of Signagelive’s SoC and HTML5 software, with integrated support for interactive applications, has allowed Dermalogica to cost effectively deploy a “Lift and Learn” concept in its newer stores and carry out targeted campaigns about its flagship product range in an engaging way.

The Marlowe Theatre updates to Signagelive software to promote information and events to customers

Tell us a little about how you are using Signagelive in your business

Redfortress Limited is an IT Systems and Support Provider in Kent. One of our clients, The Marlowe Theatre in Canterbury, approached us to replace an older out of date Digital Signage system, that was struggling to cope with the high demand media the theatre wished to display to customers.

The theatre started by replacing 17 older Media players with Chromebox’s loaded with Signagelive software. Recently the theatre has also added an additional 13 22” Samsung integrated screens with Signagelive software.

The 22” screens are located above the door leading to the auditorium and are used to relay important information to customers about the show. Information such as how long the show is, warnings such as strobe lighting, loud bangs or no photography. Also the Marlowe Theatre is already planning the addition of more screens in a new building and on a merchandise stand.

There are other SaaS based digital signage options out there, why did you choose Signagelive?

As an IT systems provider we have worked with many Digital Signage Providers before. Most providers require a certain piece of hardware to run the screens with. Signagelive has many different hardware platforms that can all work within the same system.

We have also worked with many Digital Signage providers that have disappeared leaving clients with old out of date systems, locked in with one piece of hardware and no way to update or future proof the system. When searching for the right solution to the theatre and having spoken to, and then had a demo at the Signagelive head office, we realised Signagelive was a company that cared about their products and showed no signs of disappearing from the market.

Keywest Technology Expands Abilities With New Digital Signage Player

Keywest Technology logo. Visit keywesttechnology.comLENEXA, Kan. (September 18, 2017) – With over 15 years of digital signage experience, Keywest Technology maintains the philosophy that great content requires great software and hardware to deliver a great solution. This philosophy is underscored by the release of a new digital signage player, the “352”, which is the first multi-use player of its kind from Keywest Technology. Besides the many built-in performance features of the 352, the outstanding feature crafted by Keywest Technology is how it is cross-platform compatible, from cloud-based digital signage to premise-based digital signage to interactive integration.

According to Koytt Nichols, company president and director of R&D, the new multi-use player is the best answer to most digital signage applications.

“We are creating more possibilities by expanding digital signage capabilities at affordable price points. Every digital signage application has unique needs that in the past required different hardware, content management, configurations, and software. Our all-new multiuse 352 digital signage player easily adapts to the majority of ideas one can think of, from signage networks to interactive displays to video walls. By connecting this player to our cloud-based Breeze CMS, we offer almost unlimited possibilities to bring ideas to fruition.”

In other words, AV system integrators and IX (integrated experience) designers should not judge the capabilities of the 352 by its size, which measures only 5.5” x 4.2” x 1.1” (140 x 107.5 x 27mm). Despite its diminutive size, the multi-use player is loaded with features and tools that make it a dream to install in immersive media applications. Following are some of the 352’s most important features:
