MERCER ISLAND, WA-Digital signage technology provider and consultant International Business Systems recently completed the installation of a large-scale 3M digital signage network in the Las Vegas World Market's 16-story new building furniture mart. In July 2005, IBS installed a 3M digital signage network in the new ten-story Las Vegas World Mart, which delivers custom content to 66 large format screens using Magenta Research MultiView technology to all 10 floors.
The second 16-story building was completed in January 2007, linking an additional 54 screens on all 16 floors to the original structure and expanding the existing Magenta Research MultiView installation. With the addition of Building B, IBS has deployed over 120 screens between the two buildings and using Magenta exclusively in both buildings. "IBS uses Magenta because it performs exactly as designed making our installation easier and quicker," said Brent Brown, VP and CIO. "When you gaze up the escalators, you can see 16 floors of screens and know that there is a Magenta receiver working the way you and the client require."
Randy Young, Magenta's director of marketing, commented: "For this application, IBS took advantage of the breadth of the MultiView Series product line. Five-output, four-output, and single-output transmitters were combined with several 1x9 Cat-5 distribution hubs to cost-effectively distribute the content. The MultiView Series offers four distance tiers of receiver capability-250, 500, 1000, and 1500 feet-so the receivers utilized at the World Market were matched to the extension distances required over the 16 floors."
