Insteo, BrightSign, Phillips Commercial and Peerless-AV announced today their collaboration to deliver a dramatic ‘Social Buzz’ wall and Entry Archway for DSE 2014. These video walls serve as a welcome to all attendees and highlight top social media posts and photos from Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram and Flickr.
DSE assembled an all-star team to create the entry display comprised of two video walls at the entryway to DSE 2014. BrightSign is providing its market-leading solid-state players that distribute content to Philips displays secured with Peerless-AV mounts.
The entryway includes two video walls – an elevated, eight-display archway running welcome messaging video loops, and an eye-level social media ‘Buzz Wall’ also comprised of eight displays. Although BrightSign players support HTML5 social media templates from the Insteo library, Insteo instead chose to implement an all-video solution that offers a more dramatic, curated and innovative presentation. Insteo’s creative team uses the powerful BrightSign Network to keep the video walls fresh and up to date.
“Insteo is more commonly known for HTML5 digital content, but our background is originally in motion graphics and animation,” said Jim Nista, CEO & creative director at Insteo. “We recognized that a pre-rendered video loop wouldn’t fit with the need for up-to-date social buzz – but we wanted to showcase more dynamic motion graphics. We’re using BrightSign Network to deliver frequent updates so we can have the best of both – eye-catching rendered video and fresh content.”
Insteo’s staff in Long Beach, California will curate social media content from around the web and render out new videos frequently throughout the show. These videos will push over the BrightSign Network and feed the eye-level displays to keep content relevant. BrightSign players control Ethernet synchronization of brilliant Full HD video wall content, and BrightSign Network provides the ability to send updates remotely.
“We’re dedicated to strengthening partnerships within the digital signage industry and continuing our work with DSE. It is always an honor to be selected by show management for the prestigious responsibility of powering an entry installation that becomes more impressive each year,” said Jeff Hastings, BrightSign’s CEO. “The selection of BrightSign players is a testament to the reliability and flexibility of our solid-state platform.”
In addition to providing video content for the entryway, DSE selected Insteo to create an interactive registration map to illustrate the global origins of show attendees. Motion graphics on the social media wall show attendees how to register on a digital map, located near the entryway. This registration map, created by Insteo and powered by Elo Touch, Peerless-AV and Cradlepoint, allows DSE 2014 visitors to use their smartphones to add themselves to the map to highlight the international diversity of this year’s DSE attendance.
