ONELAN Digital Signage: the Perfect Solution for one of New Zealand's most Walked-by Walls

Chorus is New Zealand's largest telecommunications utility company, with a network of local telephone exchanges, cabinets and copper and fibre cables that currently connects around 1.8 million New Zealand homes and businesses.

Chorus's 'fibre to the cabinet' programme aims to reach thousands more by delivering high speed broadband to more than 80% of New Zealanders by the end of next year.

With a massive programme of work underway, Chorus approached the design company, Creature, to provide an effective medium and location to promote their network expansion. A large-scale digital display was decided upon, and Wellington International Airport chosen as an ideal location to promote this message to a wide audience.

An installation comprising white on white router cut layers was designed and integrated with video content displayed on a bank of digital screens. The objective of the display was to reinforce the message that the network expansion was real and happening now in numerous communities.

What is installed
ONELAN's Net-Top-Boxes (NTB's) were chosen as the digital signage content management solution for the content and display options available, as well as the instant messaging and scheduling capabilities, and ease of use.

One ONELAN NTB5005 has been installed displaying content to twelve Orion MPDP seamless panels, configured in a 4 x 3 4m wide video wall. The ONELAN unit turns the power on/off, schedules and runs content, tells the MPDP to display the image across twelve panels, and can be updated remotely across a network.

Digital Signage Content
Engaging high resolution video files are displayed; with facts and imagery used to highlight the fibre optic cabling and high-speed broadband work being completed by Chorus

End Result - end user feedback
"Having investigated various digital display systems - ONELAN combined with the Orion screens fitted the bill perfectly. It offered us, and our client, the look and functionality we were after. The ability to display various content files, have remote access and be easy to use was a pretty compelling argument." Brooke Ashton-Taylor, Account Director, Creature.

Symes de Silva get their teeth into Digital Signage with ONELAN

Symes de Silva & Associates dental practice in New Zealand chose Onelan digital signage as the ideal solution to display a wide range of information throughout the practice.

Symes de Silva & Associates is an established dental practice located in Wellington, New Zealand. The practice aims to provide the highest standards of dental care available to their clients by offering an extensive range of services and employing modern technology. With nine Dentists, five Hygienists and one Specialist Oral Surgeon, Symes de Silva is a busy practice, open for long hours and seven days a week.

Symes de Silva recognised a need to streamline the way in which information is provided and displayed to clients in their busy reception area. Digital signage was chosen to display relevant and up-to-date information to clients and staff. The new signage needed to successfully integrate with Symes de Silva's existing network, have the ability to cope with various content types, refresh instantly and most importantly be easy to use by the many administrators at the practice.

Symes de Silva's requirements included:· indoor signage to display the names of associates, power point, Television feeds and news and weather to entertain clients waiting in reception; as well as
· ground floor signage to display the practice's services to passersby on the street. A wide range of content is displayed throughout the practice. The three 50" plasma's in reception provide information to clients arriving and waiting in reception; this includes the names of associates and the services offered, as well as entertainment such as television, news and weather feeds. The ground floor display is directed more towards passers by on the street and includes PowerPoint presentations and information on the practice’s services.

Symes de Silva have improved both the efficiency of communicating information to their staff and clients. In addition, by using the digital signage to entertain, the waiting experience for their clients has also greatly improved.
