Industry – Retail Installation of the Year honors a project that helped solve a business challenge by successfully leveraging innovative digital signage hardware, complex systems and collaboration among partners to bring a powerful, all-encompassing retail solution to life. Ping HD’s expertise in leveraging Samsung SSP and web-based content enabled them to provide a sports stadium in Detroit with the flexibility of updating pricing and product availability on an array of Samsung displays quickly and seamlessly.

When people say “digital signage”, they’re talking about digital displays used to inform and persuade, and it’s popping up in public spaces all over the world. Retailers and transit systems using digital signage are increasingly common, and every day more and more campuses, government institutions and corporations are finding their own ways to benefit from this increasingly affordable technology.

Our digital signage software can be used in any environment… lobby reception, student lounges, cafeterias, break rooms, call centers, elevator banks, manufacturing floors, meeting rooms…virtually any public space or network. And Visix takes digital signage beyond large displays, believing that anything with a screen can be a digital sign – desktops, RSS readers, smartphones and more.

Companies use digital signage to welcome visitors, show meeting schedules, or tell employees what’s for lunch. Maybe students are reminded that registration ends tomorrow or directed to interactive wayfinding on touchscreens to find their way around campus. As the day comes to a close, screens in your facility might show local weather and traffic so that people can plan their commutes. What you show is really only limited by what you can imagine and create.
