Mirada Media Deploys Dynamic Digital Signage in Place Ville Marie
First installation of a 57 inch NEC LCD display panel for digital signage at a commercial establishment in Quebec
Montreal, April 12 2007 - Mirada Media Inc, the leader in end-to-end integration of digital signage solutions, is proud to announce an exclusivity contract for all digital signage services in the Galerie Place Ville Marie.
SITQ - the Place Ville Marie complex operator - was searching for a novel and flexible way to inform shoppers and the general public entering Place Ville Marie via the new entrance on Cathcart and University streets. The information being displayed would consist primarily of upcoming events, new promotions, new services and contests that could change on a daily basis. In the future, SITQ also wanted the ability to offer add space to tenants as a value added service.
Mirada Media Inc. responded to SITQ's needs with an integrated solution composed of its ChannelView software and system along with a NEC 57 inch LCD display panel, displaying captivating and dynamic High-definition content. These components made Place Ville Marie the first establishment in Quebec to use such a large LCD panel for digital information distribution. Mirada Media Inc. was mandated to provide turnkey management of SITQ's new digital signage network. Elements such as content scheduling, network programming and management, as well as hardware monitoring and support are all performed via the ChannelView system from Mirada Media's office in Anjou. This setup allows SITQ to change the dynamic content on the screen as often as they like without the added expense of sending someone on site to change a static sign. The ChannelView system offers a digital platform for dynamic content distribution (video, Flash, etc.) and live information sources (news, weather, etc. from RSS feeds) which are updated instantaneously. This unparalleled flexibility is a key factor in the increasing adoption of dynamic digital signage in every marketplace - from retail to corporate to educational environments, and more.
The official inauguration of Galerie Place Ville Marie's new section was on Thursday, April 12th at 11am.
