ZM Media partnered with Spectacular Media to introduce a turnkey "all in one box" digital signage solution for the sign industry at the Tri-State Sign Expo in Joplin, Mo., in early August, according to an announcement from the companies.
According to the announcement, Ben Ziglin of ZM Media believed the initial investment in time, education and money required to get started with digital signage is too high and the technology available too complicated for an average sign company, so he created a turnkey solution for sign companies to offer to clients.
"Spectacular Media has been awesome with their support and partnership," Ziglin said in the announcement. "They really understand the market and how to deliver a simple, effective [digital signage] solution for clients. Together, we're offering a turnkey 'all-in-one-box' solution for sign companies to take part in the digital signage movement."
ZM Media's solution-in-a-box consists of an option for either a 32-inch or 40-inch commercial-grade LCD screen set with all of the required mounting brackets, cables and media player set up, installed and ready to go out of the box, the companies said. ZM Media includes instructions on installation and initial startup to make the solution a simple three-step process to unpack, install and plug in.
"It's great to finally see someone bring an offering like this to the sign industry," Spectacular Media Technology Rep Deacon Wardlow said in the announcement. "Not only are they delivering a solid solution for sign companies, but they're backing the solution with the knowledge, experience and support so sign companies can get the most out of the system."
Spectacular Media's cloud-based SM Infinity ensures the digital signage solution is easy to manage with custom-tailored content developed for each client, the announcement said. The cloudware system allows anytime, anyplace access to the LCD screens with dynamic conditional messaging and dayparting options standard.
