Live streaming is hardly considered a specialty service anymore. Most performance venues are realising it’s virtually a requirement to stay with the times in an increasingly online, inter-connected world.

Elevate your traditional mirror into a futuristic, appealing display that brings a ‘wow’ factor to any customer-facing environment. Samsung’s MLE Series display is a multi-functional hybrid display that adds unparalleled clarity and readily-available information to any mirror setting. The polarized film overlay within MLE displays ensures higher transmittance and reflectance in order to attain a more realistic product view. The MLE Series displays add ambience to any retail setting through a sleek, pristine design. With an embedded proximity sensor, built-in WiFi and integrated Samsung MagicInfo software, MLE displays can be leveraged as an all-in-one retail solution, allowing for the displays to become a valuable tool for driving and managing retail sales.
Samsung’s MLE mirror displays create a more engaging and informative customer experience by combining the power and reach of digital signage with the visual clarity of a standard mirror. Featuring high (55 percent) reflectance, the MLE displays clearly portray both real-time mirror imagery and complementary content with minimal visual impairment. Through improved visual accuracy, the MLE display can serve as a valuable sales tool that persuades and informs customers.
The unique composition of Samsung’s MLE mirror displays offers consumers a more realistic and complete product view. Featuring a polarized film overlay, the MLE mirror displays deliver superb transmittance (90 percent) and advanced reflectance (55 percent) that reduce visual distraction. As a result, customers can enjoy clearer and more vivid content than standard half-mirror format alternatives offer while simultaneously receiving higher-performing mirror visibility.
Samsung’s MLE displays elevate the traditional mirror through a bezel-free design that further keeps viewers focused on reflected and shared content rather than on the signage itself. Additionally, this bezel-free composition grants retail owners added flexibility to take their mirror display arrangements even further. Several MLE displays can be combined into unique, video-wall style arrangements without gaps or inconsistencies between screens, generating endless visual possibilities.
As shoppers approach and depart, the MLE displays’ embedded proximity sensor instinctively transitions between traditional promotional signage and a clear mirror. Retailers can set the sensors to activate once motion is detected at one of three distances (0.7m, 1.0m and 1.5m), while also pre-setting the display to shrink (small-image mode) or expand (full-image mode) featured imagery. Users also have the flexibility to set the shape and position of the expanded or contracted content to match specific motions.
Enjoy the versatility of expanded connectivity to mobile devices, from easy media sharing and screen control to simple content mirroring from a tablet or mobile phone to your display. With Samsung MagicInfo content management software, selecting and scheduling software is simple to control with either an RS232 or LAN/WiFi connection.
Powered by a System-on-Chip (SoC) semiconductor and quad core CPU with 8GB of storage, Samsung’s SMART Signage Platform is an open and integrated player side media platform that provides a powerful, streamlined solution to reduce TCO for digital signage deployments, through savings in hardware, installation and operating costs
2 USB, DVI, DP, HDMI, Component and Composite inputs provide enhanced connectivity to meet your business’ digital signage needs.
Epson has launched a new lineup of high-brightness 3LCD projectors with a laser-light source. The projectors, which include the EB-L25000U — the world’s first-ever 25,000-lumen 3LCD projector — are also the first to include inorganic 3LCD panels with a laser light source and an inorganic phosphor wheel.
So what does it mean for the consumer? Quality, reliability and flexibility, says Epson.
The new lineup includes a 4K-compatible lens and the world’s first zero offset ultra-short throw lens in five models ranging in brightness from 6,000 to 25,000 lumens.
Those lumens equate to what Epson describes as “a highly efficient light source” making the range suitable for large venues — like auditoriums and concert halls. “Using Epson’s proprietary 3LCD technology, the new projectors are capable of reproducing spectacular images with outstanding levels of colour brightness,” Epsom states.
Inorganic material — like in Epson’s original LCD panels and phosphor wheel — means a high level of light and heat resistance, so the projector can be used for longer periods of time. This range boasts 20,000 hours of maintenance-free use.
The projectors can rotate 360 degrees and are fully tiltable, with a large range of lenses available. Epsom says this “ensures that these projectors can be installed in a wide variety of locations for projection mapping, signage and a host of other applications”.
According to research by Futuresource, the high-lumen projector market is forecast to grow by 125 per cent by 2020. In response, Epson has been focusing heavily on large-scale projection.
“This is the announcement the projector world has been waiting for from Epson,” said Craig Heckenberg, GM of the Business Division at Epson Australia.
“Epson’s 3LCD laser projectors offer customers the outstanding value and performance you would expect from the global projector market leader alongside the very highest quality and sharpness of image. As a result of the benefits that Epson brings to the laser projector market, opportunities and uses for these amazing pieces of equipment continue to grow.”

A digital information display system building company is conducting a large-scale project of installing information-delivery signage at Seoul Metro stations, which are crowded all the time. In order to grab the attention of people quickly passing by, it was essential to choose a display with not only a clear image but also balanced color and high resolution from any angle.
“Since it is a large-scale project – installing 500 information delivery signs at 112 Metro stations – we chose LG’s product. LG’s IPS technology has a vivid and lifelike quality. It has no variation or color distortion and its color depiction is very detailed. Moreover, considering the large number of people always present where the signage was to be installed, the IPS panel was perfect for the project since it displays a clear, even image from any viewing angle.”
The LG product used for the project is the webOS 65-inch model just launched this year. As SoC Built-in model, it can play contents simply by plugging a USB without separate media player, making it easy to change and update contents.
Signage can be used as an effective advertising medium, carrying information about nearby shops. The contents can be updated easily and consumers can receive information about the shops close to the station on a wide screen display with a high-quality picture.
The public offered many favorable reviews about the signage at the Seoul Metro stations:
“The quality is absolutely fantastic with the best resolution and clarity.”
“It is the real No.1.”
“It seems to be displaying really vivid images.”
As usability is enhanced, the signage that accurately delivers diverse information through a vivid, high resolution display is becoming a popular advertising medium.
Along the passageway from Trade Center station to COEX, there is an eye-catching digital signage tunnel. Whereas the previous lighted advertisements at stations were static, the digital signage displays attention-getting video advertisements as well as media art.
The media tunnel, made of 126 55-inch IPS interconnected digital signage displays together reaching a total length of 27m, has created the biggest media advertising space in Korea. In addition, it has an action recognition program and interactive contents, enabling various communications with users. The space filled with LG digital signage is gaining attention for its increased advertising effectiveness thanks to its live contents and outstanding interior effect.
A video wall made of LG digital signage can also be seen at the exit of Gangnam station, which has the highest floating population. The applied model is the 55WV70MS, which has improved visibility due to its shine-out technology that provides a clear image even under direct sunlight or bright lighting. Although nine screens are used to compose one large display in a 3×3 format, the entire display overwhelms the space thanks to the ultra-slim bezels, combining to create an immersive viewing experience.
On either side of subway exit stairs, there is a 55-inch display that gives the impression of a photo frame due to the slim bezel. These displays provide up-to-the-minute information as people pass by, and thanks to the IPS panel they can be read from any angle.
A large video wall near the exit and display advertising board next to the stairs provide realistic and vivid contents benefiting the public by presenting necessary information and allowing corporations to maximize their promotion efforts.
LG Digital Signage not only offers advertising solutions but also adds beauty and value to any place. Its advanced technology has displays that are so visually appealing they serve as media art.
