ONELAN has announced that is has undertaken a joint integration with Enistic, which provides corporate energy-management solutions for education establishments and businesses, to help schools and businesses better conserve energy.
Enistic's energy management system can now be integrated into ONELAN's digital signage solutions and will record up to 16 different energy-consumption zones, showing how much power is being consumed by devices in each zone. The company says this is particularly useful for schools, where there is considerable pressure to be more energy conscious and â€˜green' and can be used as a tool for altering behavior, e.g. by encouraging students to switch off lights.
There is easy access to real-time device data and historical data. Reports can be viewed that show which devices could potentially be turned off in order to save money and reduce carbon dioxide. In a corporate environment, reports can be viewed live on a screen, not just occasionally on individual staff desktops. On a Net-Top-Box (NTB), these reports can be combined with other dynamically changing information such as live TV, RSS newsfeeds and weather forecasts.
ONELAN offer free layouts to any NTB owner that can be customized for their own energy consumption profile.
The company also announced that its digital signage has been installed at Illamasqua cosmetic counters both across the United Kingdom and internationally.
A London-based cosmetic brand, Illamasqua celebrated its first birthday in November and decided to use digital signage to help differentiate itself in a highly competitive market.
ONELAN digital signage fits easily into the network on each counter, and content is managed centrally by Illamasqua's strategic and creative agency, Propaganda, and sent to each counter both in the United Kingdom and Australia.
ONELAN digital signage is used primarily to display Illamasqua's new collection films and model and product photography. Occasionally, offers are displayed relating to seasonal holidays and also specific offers for particular regions.
Initially launched in Selfridges in Oxford Street, London, Illamasqua now have eight counters with ONELAN digital signage across the United Kingdom from Selfridges in the Trafford Centre in Manchester to Debenhams in Cardiff, and Belfast. In Australia digital signage has just been installed at an Illamasqua counter in Myer Sydney City. These all use ONELAN's NTB 5500, driving a variety of portrait and landscape 30-inch and 40-inch screens.
