Advertise Me was recently involved with the setup of a digital signage solution for Tourism Malaysia at the Wedding and Bridal Exhibition. The requirements was very simple but the client was looking for a company that was reliable and innovative to assist with the setup of their digital signage solution. That’s were Advertise Me stepped in.

The requirements

  • The main requirement was to display several promotional videos and also a Powerpoint presentation
  • Due to space restrictions, a medium sized screen was required
  • The client requested to have speakers since the videos had audio
  • The screen needed to be placed on the trestle table

The solution

Advertise Me supplied Tourism Malaysia with a commercial grade 19″ digital signage player with built in speakers.

Due to the different video formats supplied, Advertise Me converted the videos using AVS4YOU. We’ve been long term users of this great application and we recommend this to everyone.

The digital signage player was able to randomly play content from a USB thumb drive so the transfer of the video files was very quick and straight forward, especially if there was any last minute changes.

The results

The photos speak for themselves.

   

We look forward to the next exhibition and if your business is looking at hiring a digital signage solution, then feel free to contact us.

Most digital signage players will have two video outputs (VGA, or HDMI/DVI) which means you will be able to connect two screens to the players. Here’s a few examples:

 

This will give you the ability to setup the player to display content in extended mode (stretched across the two screens) or clone mode (same content on both screens). Now what happens if you want to connect a third screen to the player and even a second screen if your player doesn’t support this already? Maybe install a video card? Now most commercial grade digital signage players don’t have any slots for installing the video card, so what now?

I have an EZY solution for you. There’s obviously several solutions available but this is probably the most cost effective solution. All you need is a spare USB port and the correct OS.

It’s called J5create USB3.0 to HDMI/DVI Display Adaptor. You can buy them from here for about $80. It’s basically a USB display adaptor that allows you to connect multiple screens to the same digital signage player. There’s an adaptor for VGA, DVI and HDMI.

In the previous article, we talked about Intel’s OPS (Open Pluggable Specification) and how screen and digital signage player manufacturers are fast adopting this technology.

The main advantages of OPS:

We decided to help the digital signage community by compiling a list of OPS digital signage players and screens. At the moment it’s not comprehensive but we hope to update this on a regular basis.
