Merthyr Tydfil Adopts ONELAN for College-wide Communication

Jan 2011….Merthyr Tydfil originally had a standalone digital signage player which was just used in the college library. They needed a new digital signage system to provide information college wide (news/ messages/ important announcements etc). ONELAN emerged as the best solution able to deliver what they required: a system where more than one user could upload information, which could be time scheduled, that used common file formats and with great flexibility in the layout design of the screens.

What is installed
Two ONELAN Net-Top-Box (NTB) 5500s are used to publish content to ONELAN Century NTBs located across the college campus driving 46” Samsung screens, and a 32” LG screen. Signage is situated on each of the four floors of the college. In the library a NTB 5500 is connected to a LG 40” screen. In the main reception there is a 50” screen.

ONELAN’s power saving techniques enable a system to be scheduled to shut down and reboot the screens which benefits Merthyr Tydfil’s sustainability policy. It reduces the printing of posters and leaflets, saving on printing and paper costs.

End result/Customer feedback
“We are delighted with our ONELAN signage system, it provides flexibility, creativity and professional output every time.” Gareth Morgan, Merthyr Tydfil IT Dept.
