The Oregon Convention Center (OCC) in Portland, the largest convention center in the Pacific Northwest, chose the DT Research Signage System for digital signs throughout the buildings for visitors to get updated information in key locations. The SA3000 signage appliances are connected to various displays and serve as digital directories, signs outside of meeting rooms with event details, and general signage near entrances and escalators. The signage appliances are centrally managed from a remote site with the WebDT Content Manager (WCM) software, which manages how and when content is played. WCM also is used to manage some hardware functions such as power scheduling, player status, and generating content playback reports. Information from the Ungerboeck EBMS system about meeting details is updated and published directly to the signs providing the most recent information to visitors.
The SA3000 signage appliances integrate energy-efficient Intel® Core™ 2 Duo processors and Microsoft® Windows® Embedded Standard 7 in a compact design making these players easy to integrate with other applications and mount efficiently. Based on 45nm transistor technology, the SA3000P provides huge gains in video processing speed, and supports numerous media formats for compelling and targeted content. The DT Research Signage System helps the OCC reach their goal to be a leader in green and sustainable practices, while also making communications timely and effective.
