Managing Users for Zone and Scene Restrictions

Managing Users for Zone and Scene Restrictions

From a recent user: I have a quote request from a major hotel chain launching a digital signage network. They would like to restrict control on specific screen zones for each hotel manager. They want to control the bulk of the screens content, but would like the hotel manager to have access to a specific […]

Three recent celebrity news articles prompt the drafting of this blog post: Miley Cyrus and her demoralizing behavior on stage Justin Bieber and his intoxicated driving antics Shia Beouf and his weird behavior, including putting a bag over his head First, let it be known that I’m not a frequenter of TMZ, nor am I […]

The Kiosk is Dead: There’s an App for That

I simply love the creativity of entrepreneurs and would-be business-owners seeking to find ways to fill unmet needs in any market from healthcare to digital dining. The applications for the software we continuously promote are almost as innumerable as the ideas that power them. However, lately I’m seeing a growing trend among those that think […]

The Increasing Irrelevance of Digital Signage

I gave a good friend of mine a ride yesterday. He was sporting his latest purchase: a Samsung smart watch. The price: something around $300. We chatted about how “cool” the thing was. He’s obviously what one would call an early adopter–someone I would refer to as a “nerdlet.” This same friend whipped-out his smart […]

Is Intel In For the Long Haul?

Sad news when a company the likes of Intel decides to let over 5K employees go. It’s tough not to be too critical of the “misaligned resources” as the article states. It’s interesting the picture premise to the piece includes an image of Intel CEO Brian Krzanich holding the company’s Edison chip, which has often […]

Forget About Advertising Monetization

The clarion call of most would-be signagers involves something related to capturing advertising $$ for the millions of existing and deployed screens. There’s only one problem: the “if you build it, they will come” idea didn’t work as well as most had planned. Maybe it was the widespread recession or the lack of battle-testing of […]

Prediction: Tablet Deployments Will Overtake Traditional Signage

Posted by on Nov 18, 2013 in Digital Menu Boards, Displays, Tablets

Traditionally, digital signage has been just that–traditional. A typical deployment would include a standard sign player (some external PC) an LCD screen, internet and some slammin’ content. Fortunately or unfortunately–as the case may be–there are shifts afoot that I predict will end up changing the digital signage industry into something a bit unrecognizable from its […]

Applications for Digital Menus in Restaurants…And Not…

Posted by on Nov 15, 2013 in Digital Menu Boards

There’s a time and a  place for just about everything, including some of the technology we provide. We provided a number of digital signage displays for a prominent American university this last month.
