CAYIN Technology recently announced that the Taipei (Taiwan) World Trade Center Nangang Exhibition Hall has had found success with its adoption of the company's digital signage solution as the center's major public information system.
CAYIN's system empowers more than 50 LCD screens, including eight sets of multiple screen video walls, and provides an effective marketing platform for all event organizers, the company says.
CAYIN's digital signage solution won customer confidence at COMPUTEX TAIPEI 2008 when the exhibition made an unprecedented expansion of its scale to the newly opened Nangang Exhibition Hall, the company says. To bridge communications among different exhibition halls, CAYIN Technology sponsored digital signage players at main entrances and some selected strategic areas.
CAYIN's digital signage system even broadcast the whole opening ceremony live, including the President's speech, via Internet and satellite. The exhibition hall manager was impressed by the high quality and stability of CAYIN's digital signage solutions and decided to proceed to full deployment of the digital public information system, the company said in its release.
Thirty-six CAYIN digital signage players are used to control more than 50 LCD displays (32-, 42-, 47-, 52- and 65-inches) located at the entrances, outside meeting rooms and along the main passageways.
The most unique part in this project is the video walls at six entrances, CAYIN says. To completely meet the diversified sizes of six entrances, the installer used both portrait- and landscape-oriented LCD screens. They are incorporated with a mix of CAYIN SMP-WEBDUO and SMP-WEBPLUS digital signage players, to compose different combinations, such as 1 x 3, 1 x 5, 1 x 6 and 1 x 9 video walls.
"In this project, one SMP-WEBDUO media player, cooperated with a DVI repeater, is used to outstretch multimedia contents across maximum 1 x 8 LCD screens," said Ravel Chi, vice president of CAYIN Technology. "Its powerful capabilities to support dual displays and to define screen resolutions are two key elements that contribute to the successful deployment."
Nangang Exhibition Hall also adopted CAYIN xPost to schedule and manage meeting room digital signage. Each meeting room is equipped with one 32-inch LCD screen outside the room right beside the door. Administrators can easily arrange all events in xPost's meeting room booking system, and screens outside meeting rooms will show the right event information automatically based on pre-configured schedules.
Nangang Exhibition Halls has hosted more than 20 international exhibitions since this project was completed in June, 2009, and CAYIN says that both event organizers and exhibition hall managers are satisfied with the performance of the new public information system.
CAYIN SMP-WEB series players support most popular multimedia codec and file formats, such as HTML web pages, Flash animations, image slide shows, and high-quality videos, providing event organizers with a variety of choices.
Network management also becomes easier. Administrators of the digital signage system can manage all media players via network from their offices on the fifth floor. Content and playlists can be controlled centrally by a CMS-Performance server, located in the control room.
In case an abnormal situation arises, administrators can monitor the functioning status of the digital signage network via SuperMonitor and start troubleshooting immediately. They can also help to generate playback reports for even organizers to evaluate the performance.
