Why Digital Signage?
Traditional paper handouts or posters can be cost effective, but they are time consuming to create, post and keep current. Often they get lost in the clutter. E-mail is a great tool but, with our inbox's overflowing will your message ever get read? Of course social media and corporate information repositories are great, but they require a login and computer or smart phone access – not always practical in hallways and factory floors.
With the cost of large displays dropping rapidly, VBrick's Digital Signage solution cost effectively enables important and visually appealing corporate information to be easily created, scheduled, and delivered across an organization. Signage displays can be centrally managed, locally managed or have specific areas designated for local control.
VBrick Digital Signage provides a rich set of tools to deliver traditional text, graphics and tickers, but we don't stop there. VBrick takes digital signage to the next level by enabling compelling multimedia video clips, real time broadcasts, and television broadcasts. Personnel walking by a VBrick Digital Sign get a more impactful message with live or stored content that literally speaks to them.
VBrick's Digital Signage is at home in a lobby, at a sporting event or on the factory floor. A display can be instantly transformed from delivering IP television, weather and organizational updates into a screen that is broadcasting live meetings or events. Should a crisis occurs, Mass Alert notifications can be triggered almost instantly. These alerts can preempt normal content to provide warnings, offer suggested actions or advise when the situation has returned to normal.
The Bigger Picture
Of course this is a VBrick solution so it is part of the greater VBrick ecosystem, making it easy to manage and deliver multimedia content anywhere to almost any device, including popular tablets.
Digital Signage Content Manager
VBrick's user-friendly web based interface makes it easy to create visually captivating digital signage content; easily incorporating Flash videos, information tickers, PowerPoint, graphics, RSS feeds, and of course streaming video. Publishing content is as easy as creating a style template, selecting a playlist, and scheduling the content to play.
VBrick's Digital Signage Content Management software includes access control functionality providing content creation and content approval privileges to different users. As an example, a user could create content that displays in a particular region of the screen, but it won't be active until a moderator approves it. This allows any number of users to create content without sacrificing management and quality control standards.
VBrick's Digital Signage Players are the engines that power the content for individual television displays. The player receives high definition content over the IP network and displays it on a wide variety of plasma or LCD displays. For organizations that are powering large numbers of displays, the Signage Player can be teamed with a High Definition VBrick encoding appliance; a single Player becomes the source so the encoder can broadcast the player's output to hundreds or thousands of additional TV displays (with set top boxes) delivering the same content to every TV for a fraction of the cost.
