NEC Display Solutions of America, provider of commercial and residential LCD, plasma, and projector displays, has announced an easy-to-install solution for companies to install digital signage with custom content in their lobbies. The NEC Lobby Signage Solution has, according to NEC, “all of the components needed to create an effective communications tool, including the high-performance 40-inch NEC AccuSync PV40 display, mounting hardware, PC hardware, content management software, and power suppression.”
This all-in-one package is designed to provide a cost-effective, turnkey solution that is flexible and easily editable. The pre-configured solution is ideal for stand-alone, one-off applications versus the traditional network-driven offerings.
“The fact that this new Lobby Signage Solution provides the flexibility for virtually any business environment makes it extremely easy for those companies currently lacking digital signage,” said Jeff Blankensop, Director of Business Development for NEC Display Solutions. “Even non-technical users have the ability to tailor rich media content with a combination of text, graphics, flash animation, movies and sound to a variety of applications, bringing any lobby to life.”
According to NEC, the small- to-medium-sized businesses, corporate and hospitality markets will benefit from the bundle’s content design voucher provided by EscapeWire Solutions. The voucher can be redeemed upon purchase and used for the development of custom templates utilizing a company’s logos, images and more. The system is ideal for employee messaging, VIP welcoming, way-finding, event listing, trade shows, community messaging, safety awareness, menu boards, and event messaging.
