Livewire Digital's SmartScreen application for City 24/7 received a nod from the Today Show as one of the top applications to watch in 2013. The screens are powered by Livewire's digital signage software and managed through its eConcierge Content Management System.
The SmartScreens are interactive digital signs, a collaborative development effort by York-based Livewire and KioWare, placed throughout the New York City. They provide public access to location-based information such as restaurants, parks and shopping venues, as well as local events and city-wide events. When not in use, the screens will display advertisements and users will have the ability to view more information about the ads.
The first of the 32-inch touchscreen-based solutions was unveiled on Nov. 20 in Union Square by City 24/7, with plans to introduce the SmartScreens in 12 more metropolitan cities in the near future.
"It's an honor to have our software shown on the Today Show," said David McCracken, Livewire's president and CEO. "The City 24/7 application is a great example of how our flexible eConcierge system is easily adapted to businesses and municipalities of all sizes. The platform provides the technology for City 24/7 to connect with users via their SmartScreens, mobile app and website, and allows City 24/7 to easily keep the content fresh and up to date."
