Eclipse Digital Media had the pleasure of attending ISE 2014 and joined digital signage hardware manufacturers ONELAN on their stand. Eclipse were invited to showcase their latest digital signage content and demonstrate the various ways they can integrate devices to create interactive digital signage solutions.
First up to showcase was a restaurant digital signage concept that integrates:
Android tablet touch order application
Ticket / receipt printer
Front of house, advertising display
Kitchen area, current order display
Back of house marketing / sales statistics
The process for the concept is: User places an order on the tablet, this order prints a receipt / ticket for them. The order is displayed on the kitchen monitor and also automatically updates the back office latest statistics table. The lowest selling item in the sales table automatically triggers an advert front of house to try and up-sell the item. This set up can be completely customised to the customer requirements but as a showcase of integration and interactivity, this piece shows how Eclipse Digital Media can bring together various devices and data to deliver solutions based on customer specific requirements. Take a look at ONELAN’s pre-sales engineer, Łukasz Górasiński, demonstrating this proof of concept on ONELAN’s stand at ISE 2014:
The second piece being showcased on the ONELAN stand was an interactive touch application that changes content on various displays based on IP commands to ONELAN digital signage media players. This solution can be used to create a variety of interactive discover points in many environments including museums, exhibitions and schools.
2014 will be the second consecutive year that Eclipse Digital will be on ONELAN’s stand to showcase the latest technology and content developments. As an Advanced Content Design Partner and approved reseller of ONELAN digital signage, Eclipse Digital have developed new solutions that have enabled businesses to excel including dynamic digital menu boards, performance data dashboards, weather activated content, print and interactive touch solutions. At ISE 2014, Eclipse Digital will be on the ONELAN stand to demonstrate new digital signage content and solutions, if you would like to talk with one of the members of the team at ISE, contact us to arrange a meeting.

Output Magazine is a UK based print and digital magazine and have exhibited at Sign & Digital before. This year they wanted to focus on Digital Signage and educating print businesses about the opportunity Digital Signage presents. To do this Output required a partner to showcase the various applications of Digital Signage and to provide a professional insight into the Digital Signage world – that’s where we come in!
Throughout the show we will be showcasing various ways in which you can use Digital Signage including digital menu boards, corporate, retail, education and touch screen content.

The International Food and Drink Event 2013 (IFE13) has finished for another year. This exhibition, held at ExCel London, comes around every two years and this was the first time Eclipse Digital Media and ONELAN had been a part of it. At the exhibition we took a stand in the General Food hall and showcased our embed signage Digital Menu Board solutions that can be updated using an excel spreadsheet. At IFE we also showed how touch screen content can be used in a food & drink focused retail environment using digital posters.
We met many independent cafe’s, coffee shops, health food restaurants, pubs and some larger restaurant organisations, that showed great interest in our solutions. Most of the visitors we met expressed a view to be forward thinking, stand out from the competition and to have the flexibility needed to make changes to their menu at short notice, for which our solution is perfectly suited. We also discussed with people the various ways in which you can trigger content using embed signage digital menu boards with things like the local weather and using touch screen activations for specific layouts.

We attended RBTE for the first time this year, invited by Samsung and ONELAN to exhibit with them. It was a fantastic exhibition to be part of, not only for showcasing our products and services but for experiencing the latest technology trends in the retail marketplace. During the exhibition we met lots of businesses interested in pushing new technology into their stores and we were humbled by the praise our content and embed signage solution received from those businesses, as well as our peers.

ISE Amsterdam 2013 proved to be the best attended AV trade show in the world this year and not only did ISE break attendance figures but there were some other interesting figures from this years exhibition too.
Eclipse Digital Media have just arrived back in the UK from a manic few days exhibiting with ONELAN at ISE Amsterdam 2013.
The ISE 2013 exhibition is considered one of the largest in the world for the AV and electronic systems industry and consisted of 895 exhibitors in 12 halls. This year ISE 2013 broke records for its attendance which officially stacked up to a mighty 44,151 people visiting the RAI, Amsterdam.
Eclipse Digital Media partnered with ONELAN at the exhibition to showcase digital menu board solutions using Eclipse Digital Media content powered by ONELAN’s digital media players and Data Collection Engine (DCE) software. The QSR style content we created for the exhibition was used in a multi display landscape setting and the restaurant / pub chain touch screen menu content we created was displayed in portrait below the QSR menu boards and also on a standalone plinth with a 55″ touch screen.
Using ONELAN digital signage media players and their new DCE software, we were able to update all the content on the digital menu boards via an Excel spreadsheet. This spreadsheet was hosted on Dropbox and updated via iPads on the stand through a third party application called CloudOn.
The ONELAN exhibition stand also included some of ONELAN’s new products and future products such their new Enterprise Content Management Systems and multichannel delivery engine Cyclone.
ISE Amsterdam 2013 proved to be an extremely busy affair and we are extremely proud to have worked with ONELAN to showcase digital menu board solutions at the event. It also gave Eclipse Digital the opportunity to meet and share information with a network of international ONELAN resellers.
