‘GESS, being the region’s foremost event to learn and experience the best solutions for teachers and students, is the ideal event for us to showcase our products and technology’, adds Jeroen.

3 Reasons to Use Interactive Digital Signage

3 Reasons to Use Interactive Digital Signage

The following article has been re-posted from digitalsignagetoday.com

No matter what industry you use it in, interactive digital signage can make your content more impactful, engaging and exciting.

Just like people are more likely to remember something if they write it down, they are also more likely to remember something if they have to engage with it, rather than just see it. We only remember 10 percent of what we read. We only remember 20 percent of what we hear. We only remember 30 percent of what we see. But we remember 80 percent of what we personally experience. That’s where interactive signs come in.

Not convinced interactive digital signage is for you? Here’s three reasons why interactive digital signage is a must.

It’s engaging

What are you most likely to stop and look at: a screen with a slogan and photo OR a screen that offers you the choice to look at whatever content you’re most interested in?

Probably the second option, right? 81 percent of survey respondents said that interactive content grabs attention more effectively than static content. So yes, it’s pretty obvious that we’re more likely to approach an interactive kiosk than a static sign (even if it’s on a digital screen). With interactive marketing your business can grow brand awareness, differentiate from your competition, increase customer loyalty, and increase profits!

In retail, making digital signage advertisements interactive increases a shopper’s likelihood to impulse buy. In fact, 70 percent of marketers found that interactive content is more effective in converting visitors. So, instead of displaying a photo or video of your products, get creative and think of ways your customers can engage with your products digitally!

It’s memorable

What are you most likely to remember: a screen with a slogan and photo; or a screen that offers you the choice to look at whatever content you’re most interested in?

Again, probably the second option! That’s because digital signage is inherently more memorable than traditional, static digital signage. Interactive advertising manages to hold the attention of the consumer longer, leading to a better chance of that consumer remembering your brand. Actually, unaided brand recall was 8 percent higher for interactive ads, and 10 percent higher for aided brand recall — for example when viewing a subsequent ad or piece of marketing.

Today the average person is bombarded with the equivalent of 174 newspapers of data every single day. That’s a lot of distracting information! In reality, the average person only retains about 10 percent of the information we hear, 3 days after we hear it.

So, by making our digital signage interactive, it increases the likelihood that your content will be retained among the 174-newspapers-worth of information we absorb in a given day.

It’s impactful

We can’t emphasize enough that consumers are demanding more and more from businesses. They’re looking for personable, meaningful interactions among a sea of constant distraction. This is exactly what makes having the ability to actually interest and engage them with your content so impactful.

By integrating interactive content into your digital signage strategy, you make it easier to gather impactful metrics — how many people are interacting, what are they interacting with, for how long, where are they dropping off, etc. You open up the doors to help make data-driven decisions that will ultimately impact your bottom line.

At the end of the day, it is of course important to carefully consider what content works best for your digital strategy and customer profiles. If interactive digital signage sounds like a good fit for both, you could be on the cusp of something incredibly impactful!

NEC Display Announces New Platform for Video Walls

NEC Display Announces New Platform for Video Walls

The following article has been re-posted from displaydaily.com

NEC Display Solutions of America, a leading provider of commercial-grade digital signage displays and projectors, announced its new 46” and 49” UN Series displays designed to make installing and managing video walls easier than ever through commercial-grade features such as color control, easy content distribution, and enhanced software capabilities.

Backed by NEC Display’s known quality and expertise in the video wall market, the new 46” UN462A and UN462VA are designed for digital signage applications and feature professional-grade panels with high-haze, anti-glare panel technology, FHD resolution and uniformity control across the entire digital canvas thanks to its rigorous factory self-calibration. The 46” display sports an ultra-narrow cabinet with a 3.5mm bezel gap. Meanwhile, the 49” UN492S and UN492VS adds an S-IPS panel with an ultra-narrow cabinet featuring a bezel gap of 1.8mm, ideal for corporate, cinema, house of worship, and retail signage customers.

“With our new UN Series video wall displays, we’re elevating our customers’ video wall capabilities by enhancing ease of use and delivering the commercial-grade quality and features that NEC is known for,” said Ben Hardy, Senior Product Manager at NEC Display Solutions. “Each display is calibrated to produce a uniform image out of the box, and we’ve maintained a high-haze panel, enhanced our daisy chain functionality, and future-proofed the connectivity options by adding a DisplayPort and HDMI out connection.”

The 46” and 49” UN Series displays feature improved color management with the addition of NEC’s proprietary SpectraView Engine that allows for self-calibration by connecting a sensor directly to the display, as well as making significant adjustments via the on-screen display. In addition, the UN Series feature improved NDWC capabilities with corner adjustment and uniformity correction and quicker recalibration techniques. The displays also include both DisplayPort and HDMI out connections to daisy chain signals from the internal media player for easy video wall installation and management. Meanwhile, the new TileCut function ensures the image does not get cut off when displaying content on non-16:9 video walls – a must for customers who need to ensure their content is always properly displayed.

“We’ve designed our new UN Series video wall displays to directly address the needs of customers who need video walls for digital signage, presentation, entertainment, or informational applications,” Hardy said. “With an anti-glare panel and accurate color reproduction, the UN Series offers close-viewing ability, presenting a cost-efficient indoor video wall option in addition to direct view LED panels.”

The UN Series’ impressive commercial-grade feature set is rounded out with a full steel chassis, faster processing times, and TileMatrix functionality for complete control over image adjustments on the wall.

Among other key benefits of each display:

  • Full commercial build with steel chassis, commercial-grade cooling fans and temperature sensor with self-diagnostics for 24/7 operation
  • Brightness up to 700 cd/m2
  • Raspberry Pi and OPS/Expansion slots for added content management capability
  • Direct LED-backlighting, translating to improved brightness uniformity, reduced power consumption and mercury-free components
  • Auto ID, Auto IP Address and Auto TileMatrix, which ease the time necessary to set up control and image properties across the video walls
  • FrameComp, which compensates for content lag in larger video walls with horizontal moving objects
  • Expanded daisy chain options with DisplayPort 1.2 and HDMI Out, which enables 4K UHD resolution pass through and TileMatrix capabilities across entire wall
  • NaViSet Administrator 2 software compatible, which allows asset management capabilities of the products as well as full control and task management
  • Uniformity calibration of each display for gamma, intensity, and RGB for color consistency from display to display
