A new educational facility in the capital of Saudi Arabia has deployed CAYIN digital signage solutions to convey timely information across a network of 38 LCD screens throughout the building, according to an announcement from CAYIN Technology Co. Ltd.
The signage was installed in the main entrance, meeting rooms, auditorium and conference halls of the SABIC Academy, the new learning center of Saudi Basic Industries Corp. in Riyadh.
CAYIN's digital signage solutions were introduced in this project by SMARTECH AV, CAYIN's premium partners in Saudi Arabia, to replace old-fashioned bulletin boards and create a speedy digital information channel.
"This is the first learning center in Saudi Arabia to use this technology to manage all meeting rooms completely," said Yousef Abdul Hadi, projects Manager of SMARTECH AV Co. "We are honored to be selected as the main partner to supply all AV and digital signage with room schedule systems for the first smart learning academy in Saudi Arabia."
The new Academy contains 30 meeting rooms and hosts a wide variety of learning programs, including workshops, summits and training classes every day. Instead of using bulletin boards, SABIC deploys 17-inch flush-mounted LCD screens in the wall outside the 30 meeting rooms, along with CAYIN's digital signage solutions. The screens indicate the meeting topic, start time and duration of the meeting, helping enrolled trainees locate the correct class and meeting room.
Each screen connects to one CAYIN SMP-WEB4 digital signage player and is managed centrally via CAYIN's meetingPost software. Equipped with a room booking system, meetingPost enables administrators to process online booking for meeting and banquet rooms.
That allows SABIC Academy to edit a meeting list for each meeting room in advance, but for impromptu meetings or room changes, the administrator can also input meeting information remotely in the office without running back and forth in the building to change the post.
In addition to meeting rooms, SABIC Academy also installed three 51-inch LCD screens in the main entrance, two for the auditorium, and two for the multipurpose hall to increase the reach of the Academy's public announcements. With the help of CAYIN lobbyPost software, SABIC can select a template, enter data, and immediately show high quality video, tickers, Web pages, pictures, weather information and even live TV programs.
