CHOSEN FOR EXPERTISE

Krispy Kreme have been driven towards a digital transformation for years and tasked their IT solution provider Theravada to help achieve this. Theravada built a strong relationship with Eclipse Digital through many meetings and working on initial trial stores. After verifying Eclipse Digital’s services and valuing the expertise offered by the team, Theravada sub-contracted Eclipse Digital to provide a variety of Digital Signage services including hardware architecture, supply and commissioning, LED installation and ongoing support.

DIGITAL MENU BOARDS

Overview

Krispy Kreme have been rolling out digital menu boards to their nationwide Theatre stores, Fresh shops, Rockets and Drive Thrus. The digital menus come in various configurations including:

  • Single screen landscape / portrait
  • 5×1 portrait
  • 3×1 landscape
  • 2×1 portrait
  • Video walls
  • Large stretched screens
  • Shelf edge displays

Theravada provide the full solution to Krispy Kreme with the screen technology, installation services and support. The media player hardware supply, commissioning and software support is sub-contracted to Eclipse Digital.

Eclipse Digital work to provide excellent support service to Theravada and take care of the media player setup process, ensuring they are fully commissioned and pre-configured with store content, ready to be installed by the Theravada engineers.

Software

embed signage is the digital signage software used throughout the Krispy Kreme estate. The software provides Krispy Kreme with the flexibility for hardware choices due to the vast selection of hardware supported. The software offers support for unlimited resolution configurations and gives scheduling tools to allow for campaigns to be easily scheduled and rules specified to activate different content.

The software includes functionality to sync content, integrate external systems such as LED lighting and for devices to trigger content on other devices… plus many more features which Krispy Kreme use depending on the store and customer experience required.

The menu board content consists of a combination images and menu pricing along with animated promo sections, some animations covering just one screen, others covering small sections of a screen. At specific intervals, the entire menu board (2×1, 3×1, 5×1 configurations) will show a take over that goes over all screens making a huge visual impact.

“The main reason for choosing embed is the user experience. Based on the others I have seen on the market this is by far the best. Not only visually but intuitively too. On top of that, the features are extensive and the support from the team is second to none”

GEN8 CABINETS

Overview

Krispy Kreme were looking to make fundamental changes to how the doughnuts were presented and sold in-store at partner sites such as Tesco and Welcome Break, through the introduction of digital technology to their cabinets. The new digital cabinets, dubbed ‘GEN8 cabs’ (being the 8th generation of the sales cabinets), were set to be unique, groundbreaking and ultimately a tool for increasing sales.

“The initial trial in 15 Tesco stores has gone very well and we are now pleased to continue the rollout into many more”
Suk Nicholas, Sales Director, Krispy Kreme UK

Technology

Each cabinet has digital header screens (one front 37″, one left 21″, one right 21″), which are used to reinforce key brand messages such as ‘Made Fresh Daily’ as well as providing specific tailored content depending on the store, the time of day, and the season.

There is a 15” HD display mounted internally which is used to deliver brand messages and promotion material such as ‘how it’s made’ films along with ‘Buy a Dozen’ promotions.

The cabinets also include digital shelf edge labels (SELs) which are used to display attractor loops (e.g. a waterfall of doughnuts) to catch the eye of customers, as well as full product ingredient specs, enabling customers to easily check for any allergens.

Presence sensors are used to detect when human presence is within a specific area in front of the cabinet. This triggers content to change on the SELs, which switch from a waterfall of doughnuts to fixed product information in order for the customer to make their purchase decision.

Finally, the cabinets include an LED light strip at the bottom which illuminate the floor below giving off a ‘floating’ effect. The colour can be changed to match the content and brand messaging for example, when running the Valentine’s campaign, the colour theme on screen was red so the LED strip was changed to red to match.

All of the content, sensor parameters, triggers and LED strip colours are controlled via one cloud based digital signage software; embed signage.

DIRECT VIEW LED

Overview

In some stand out locations Krispy Kreme needed screens with a big impact and unique size. They scoped a variety of Direct View LED products through Theravada who commissioned Eclipse Digital to design, supply, install and commission the LED solutions.

Technology

Eclipse Digital specified a range of Absen indoor direct view LED products to be used in various locations. The pixel pitch selected was 2.4mm and offered a range of module sizes to meet the unique spaces.

Absen LED was installed at:

  • Canary Wharf – 2 x LED portrait banners

HOT NOW COUNTDOWN

Overview

At Krispy Kreme’s Westfield Stratford location, there was a requirement to bring the ‘Hot Now’ Doughnut theatre to life and deliver a real spectacle for the customer.

Doughnuts are made fresh on site every day and come out hot ready to eat. To bring more theatre to this, Krispy Kreme wanted a countdown experience to build excitement to when the hot doughnuts would be ready.

Technology

It all starts with a 10″ touch screen tablet where staff on site can activate the Hot Now countdown. They press a button on the screen and this kick-starts the countdown on the 5×1 Portrait Digital Menus.

During the 30 minute countdown, content changes in a variety of ways, every 5 minutes, to highlight how long is left including a full screen promo takeover crescendo on both the 5×1 portrait digital menus and the 2×1 portrait digital menus.

Once the countdown has completed, the menu content on the 2×1 and 5×1 switch to the HOT NOW menu and promo content, the lights dim in store and the red HOT NOW sign above the serving counter, red LED lighting around the serving ‘hole in the wall‘ as well as the main store entrance sign all activate.

Technology used to deliver the HOT NOW experience:

  • 10″ POE touch screen tablet for countdown activation
  • Samsung Video Wall Screens with iBASE digital signage media players for 2×1 and 5×1 portrait menus
  • Mode Lighting Tiger Power Units with iBASE digital signage media player for lighting control
  • The content, device communication and light system integration is managed via embed signage

CLIENT BACKGROUND

Wembley Park is undergoing a major transformation and fast becoming North-west London’s go-to visitor destination and digital signage is playing a key role in the transformation. The Wembley Park redevelopment is being completed by property development and investment company, Quintain. The project has seen £2bn investment to date and once complete will boast 8.8 million sq ft of mixed-use development, 8,400 new homes and a 7 acre park.

About Quintain
Established in 1992, Quintain brings property and places to life through investment and development. Our most famous project is Wembley Park, covering approximately 85 acres of land around the UK’s largest National Stadium in North West London. To date Quintain have completed more than 3,000 homes and mixed use development at Wembley Park, including London’s first outlet centre which now attracts 7 million visitors a year. This year Quintain will have 3,000 homes under construction on this site, with outline consent in place for the delivery of a further 3,000. Previously, Quintain were instrumental in the conception of Greenwich Peninsula, a 15,000-home development around The O2 in South East London that is now controlled by Knight Dragon.

About Wembley Park
Wembley Park is a dynamic new cultural neighbourhood being created in North West London. Building on the international reputation for music and sporting events for which the area is known, Wembley Park is fast becoming a landmark destination with culture, entertainment and a community at its heart. It includes homes, shops, and places to work, as well as attractive public spaces, with parks and gardens adding to the squares and wide boulevards already created. When completed, nearly half of the 85-acre site will be open space.

CHOSEN FOR EXPERTISE

Through a comprehensive tender process, Quintain carefully evaluated various suppliers and selected Eclipse Digital Media to undertake a variety of work as part of the transformation.

Work commissioned and completed includes an LED digital transformation of the Bobby Moore Bridge, LED totems on Olympic Way and White Horse Square plus a variety of digital signage for Europe’s first multi-storey coach park; the Pink Car Park

“The digital signage projects we’ve commissioned with Eclipse Digital have required collaboration with many different contractors, architects and planning teams. Eclipse Digital have been fully co-operative from start to finish. The overall professionalism from Eclipse Digital has been outstanding”

Senior Project Manager, Quintain

BOBBY MOORE BRIDGE

Overview

The Bobby Moore Bridge underpass is the pedestrian route into Wembley Park from Wembley Park Underground Station where visitors walk along Olympic Way to venues and visitor attractions such as the iconic Wembley Stadium, The SSE Arena Wembley, London Designer Outlet and Troubadour Theatre. Named after the legendary England player, it was dedicated in 1993 following his death. This space was identified as a vital / flagship area to improve throughout the redevelopment of Wembley Park.

One of the key benefits and main objectives of the upgrade is to allow cohesive day-to-day experiences along with temporary commissions from designers and artists both internationally and from the local community.

Technology

This bridge has been digitally enhanced with LED screens and lighting system all connected to offer a fully integrated digital walkway to and from Wembley Park. The system includes over 100m2 Absen XD6 LED panels in two high-resolution outdoor LED configurations, fitted to the northern and southern parapets of the bridge. Under the bridge, there are a series of LED lights behind diffuse glass panels to create a ‘dot’ effect, in keeping with the original tile artwork at the site, and finally, low resolution LED strips have been spread out across the ceiling in linear rows.

Technology used on Bobby Moore Bridge includes:

Stadium Side LED

Station Side LED

Pedestrian underpass

Implementation

The project commissioned by Quintain at Wembley Park was designed by architects Dixon Jones and managed by The Light Lab. Lighting design company Speirs & Major provided the design architecture for the pedestrian underpass and Eclipse Digital Media provided the LED Digital Signage design, software and installation for the sides of the bridge.

Eclipse Digital worked with Quintain, Dixon Jones and The Light Lab to deliver the digital signage expertise required to successfully achieve the Bobby Moore Bridge upgrade. Being involved in the early phases on development and planning meant Eclipse Digital were able to complete the Absen LED installation within two weeks of starting works on site.

Software

embed signage is the digital signage software that brings the entire digital experience together on the Bobby Moore Bridge. embed signage is used to run the primary content on both Absen LED walls while also providing TCP commands to control the brightness levels of the panels based on an Astronomical clock, keeping in line with the site wide digital brightness policy. embed signage can also be used to run content underneath the bridge on the lighting technology, providing an option for Wembley Park to run content both on and under the bridge in a truly immersive digital experience.

“The solution provided by Eclipse Digital has dramatically improved the aesthetics of the main arrival point to the estate. It presents us with a range of new opportunities and gives all our partners enhanced coverage on the estate. One of the really impressive opportunities presented with the solution, is the ability to offer full digital takeovers for the bridge – that includes content on the large LEDs as well as the walls and ceiling of the underpass.”
Matt Simkin, Commercial Manager, Wembley Park

Benefits

One of the key benefits and main objectives of the upgrade is to allow cohesive day-to-day experiences along with temporary commissions from designers and artists. To launch the Bobby Moore Bridge digital transformation, architectural design collective miramandtom were commissioned to carry out a bespoke artistic installation. Their work, entitled Crossover, reflects the complex makeup of the community that live and pass through Wembley Park everyday.

WHITE HORSE SQUARE & OLYMPIC WAY

Overview

Considered the main public entrance to Wembley Park, Olympic Way runs from Wembley Park underground station to Wembley Stadium. Here, the first full wrap LED totem has been installed.

On a primary entrance route to Wembley Stadium, White Horse Square provides the pathway for visitors from Wembley Stadium train station to Wembley Park and the Stadium.

To give directional information and key messaging three outdoor full wrap LED totems have been erected standing 5.6m tall.

The totem structures were designed, built and installed by Astley Signs including the concrete plinths and wayfinding glass. Working together with Astley Signs, we were able to collaboratively ensure the entire structure was purposefully built for installing the LED and all necessary components.

Technology

The totem structure measures a grand 28m2 with Absen LED covering all four sides and 16m2 of the structure. These full wrap portrait orientated LED totems have significant presence and comprise of:

Software

embed signage is used to run the primary content on all LED totems while also providing TCP commands to control the brightness levels of the panels based on an Astronomical clock, keeping in line with the site wide digital brightness policy. Content between the totems can be sync’d using software features within embed signage, giving Wembley Park an option to create experiences combining all totems.

PINK COACH & CAR PARK

Overview

The Pink Coach and Car Park at Wembley Park is Europe’s first multi-storey coach and car park developed by Quintain and Huber Car Park Systems. It’s a multi-award winner and features two parking levels for coaches, as well as a five-storey car park. The suspended deck also allows for the positioning of broadcasting vehicles for Wembley Stadium.

Digital signage was required to provide ever changing, event specific information including directional information, promotions and parking details. A mix of signage was required to meet the project requirements.

Technology

This site uses digital signage in a variety of places. Upon the main vehicle entrance there is an IP65 rated high bright outdoor display and bespoke manufactured totem enclosure. At various locations around the parking areas there are 55″ high bright, IP65 rated displays in both portrait and landscape orientations. Inside the lower level staircase there is a 10m2 Absen LED display providing unmissable messaging for crowd management and directional messages for event days as well as advertising opportunities.

Technology used throughout the Pink Coach and Car Park includes:

Custom Totem

As part of the project, an entrance signage display was required to display parking tariff and driver guidance to visitors. This information would change regularly and due to the placement and parking location identification required, a custom built totem was needed.

Working with our engineering partners, we were able to design and build a custom white portrait totem with pink ‘P’ identification symbol embedded. This totem houses an IP65 high bright display running embed signage software allowing Wembley Park the ability to update the content exactly as required.

They have been truly excellent in terms of sharing their technical expertise, software training, troubleshooting and the team are on call at all times to ensure the solution is properly maintained.

The software (embed signage) we use to control the content is superb. It gives us the ability to add rules to our campaigns for when they should play as well as scheduling different layouts for specific event days. Not only is it great for content management, the software allows us to control the LED brightness through adhoc or scheduled commands. We are also able to sync brightness control to an Astronomical clock, aligning with our site wide policy to ensure night time residential amenity is appropriately protected.

We recommend Eclipse Digital without hesitation”

BIG Impact

CLIENT BACKGROUND

Matalan is a UK retail store that has been in operation since 1985. Currently Matalan has over 220 stores nationwide serving over 12 million UK families every year.

UNDERSTANDING THEIR NEEDS

As part of Matalan’s initiative to increase market share in the furniture and homeware categories they launched their first ever Matalan Homestore at their site in Knaresborough.

Matalan were seeking a digital signage solution that would give the store the ‘wow’ factor and increase footfall.

INSTALL

The Solution

Working with Matalan, Eclipse Digital Media carried out a number of site visits and evaluated several solutions including video walls before an agreement was made that an Indoor LED Wall would deliver the big impact required.

The Indoor LED Wall solution delivered by Eclipse Digital Media measured 4m x 2.3m and comprised of 28 Absen N4 Black LED Modules, a single ONELAN media player and cloud digital signage software; embed signage.

Eclipse Digital Media also installed an Intel NUC with remote management software to remotely maintain the LED software.

Software

Eclipse Digital Media used embed signage, digital signage software for this project. The software means content can be uploaded and designed for the specific resolution of the LED wall and then either published to the display immediately or scheduled to publish at a time when there is more bandwidth available on site.

Eclipse Digital Media also use remote management tools to maintain the hardware including the ONELAN media player and all LED Modules. This provides Matalan with a fully supported digital signage solution they can rely on.

RESULTS

Driving into the retail park where the store is located in Knaresborough, it is impossible to miss the 4m x 2.3m LED wall in the store front window. Initially the primary content shown on the wall included episodes of ‘The Show’ in partnership with ITV and Time Inc hosted by Denise Van Outen.

Moving forward the content strategy for the display is to evolve with a focus on driving more footfall into store. Matalan will be using footfall tracking technology to measure the impact of different content.
