Updateable signage from On-Site Networks and the innovative plasma display technology from Pioneer New Media Technologies allows consumers toouse a real-time video display system for information, education and entertainment.
New York-based retailer Key Foods is the first grocery chain to take advantage of real-time video displays. The chain installed the Pioneer/On-Site system in 18 locations throughout the state of New York.
Powered by digital servers provided by On-Site, the network uses a total of 60 Pioneer 40-inch plasmas (PDP-V401s) to display information and imagery using video content that is updateable in seconds. Content providers like i-Village, the Food Network and Dell Horoscope now provide daily ad specials, cooking tips, horoscopes, entertainment news and more through the system.
On-Site Networks chose ActiveLight as it's distributor. And Active Light chose Pioneer because of the 40-inch plasma's compatibility with current video standards, its ability to handle ambient light and its cabinet depth of less than 4 inches.
On-Site Networks has developed a relationship with Pioneer and plans to expand the Digital Supermarket Network to over 5000 supermarket locations over the next few years.
