Apollo Display Technologies has scored an unusual coup for a digital signage company: Its digital signage system has played a prominent role in the reconstruction and refurbishment of a restaurant on the Discovery Channel’s all-new "Construction Intervention" reality show. The episode, which premiered on Tuesday, April 20, featured fireman Walter Lewis’ Just Wingin’ It restaurant nestled on busy Eighth Ave. in New York’s Harlem.

Lewis always wanted to give back to his community, but being a firefighter wasn't enough. He wanted to open a business that helped his community thrive while providing a safe hangout for local youths. Lewis' dreams came true when he opened Just Wingin' It in Harlem.

Unfortunately, a bad construction job forced him to shut his doors indefinitely — only a few months after opening. Lewis had always been there for his community, so New York City construction veteran Charlie Frattini and his team decided they were going to be there for him. The redesign of this small restaurant includes a brand new layout that can handle heavy customer traffic, new restaurant-grade kitchen equipment, space-saving seating, a brand new welcoming restaurant façade — and digital menu boards.

The installed Maxline digital signage system from Ronkonkoma, N.Y.-based Apollo Display Technologies consists of three 40-inch Albra series 1080P full HD commercial-grade monitors based on the company’s ArtistaNET II control technology and MCB (Media Control Box). According to the company, the entire Ethernet-based system is run from its ACC (Artista Control Center) software package and is fully Green compliant.
