Madrid’s Ministry of Science and Innovation installs Digital Signage from ONELAN

The Ministry for Science and Innovation (Ministerio de Ciencia e Innovación) required a new, innovative and modern solution for their communications. At the same time they wanted give their reception area a contemporary ‘hi tech’ image in keeping with their activities.

A digital signage solution comprising ONELAN Net-Top-Box (NTB) Millenium 5500s has been installed by RPS Audiovisuales, ONELAN’s Spanish distributor, to achieve this.

The Ministry wanted to provide a better more interactive service, and did not wish to use printed brochures alone to achieve this. By installing a six screen video wall with a movement sensor, visitors are able to see relevant information without necessarily having to ask employees on reception.

In addition the Ministry wanted to make the results of some recently published research easily accessible to visitors. ONELAN digital signage with interactive touch screens was installed to allow visitors to easily find information relating to particular projects they are interested in.

The Ministry also wanted to entertain visitors while they waited in reception, and so two 52” screens have been placed in the reception area, showing Ministry information and videos, in addition to some advertising and local news. This has resulted in a much more ‘high tech’ image for the Ministry and also ensures visitors are both entertained and informed when they come to the Ministry.

Finally, the introduction of ONELAN’s digital signage has reduced the requirement for a large amount of printed information and brochures, and has also resulted in staff efficiencies.


"One of the positive aspects of the installation here (in the Ministry) is that it demonstrates to other officials and businessmen who visit that by using digital signage it does not have to be costly to do high quality marketing ".
“…..it is the most appropriate solution for our needs and many individuals at the Ministry have been involved. With a project of this kind, we all work as one team: both those who choose the content and those providing technical support”.
Santiago Asensio, Ministerio de Ciencia e Innovación

Ravintolamestarit Dishes up Innovative Marketing with ONELAN



Ravintolamestarit Oy, Finland, established the Isä Camillo restaurant and bar in 1997 and have since grown into a chain of seven restaurants. They identified a business opportunity in Kuopio city, which at the time lacked many noteworthy restaurants.

Ravintolamestarit were looking for new and innovative ways to market their business, and on the advice of Avek Esitysratkaisut Oy (Avek), decided to invest in digital signage from ONELAN. They wanted to create a new image for their restaurants by using digital signage, and realised that it could also be used as a unique and effective marketing and information delivery channel.

Ravintolamestarit have installed one ONELAN Net Top Box (NTB) 510 publisher unit and six ONELAN NTB 510 subscriber units. The digital signage is managed and controlled using ONELAN’s Digital Signage Manager (DSM).

The content has been created by Ad Kiiwi as well as Ravintolamestarit themselves. Advertising is focused for different customer groups.
Staff in each restaurant update information such as lunch time menus and offers on an adhoc basis. Advertising and other content (images, videos, press releases etc) are updated centrally every week by Ravintolamestarit Oy.

Each screen also has an RSS news feed showing local news.
Training, real-time maintenance as well as support and some content production are supplied by Avek.

How it is used
The digital signage is used to deliver important information from service and product marketing to event information. Revenue from alcohol manufacturers and other advertisers has helped cover the costs of the initial system acquisition.
The need for traditional marketing is now minimal; since they have installed digital signage the use (and cost) of posters and flyers has reduced by 90%.
While Ravintolamestarit are not planning on expanding their business further at the moment, they are planning to maximise the use of their digital signage technology for advertising with the assistance of Avek Esitysratkaisut Oy.

End user feedback
“We see ONELAN digital signage as an excellent way of standing out from our competition. With digital signage we are now using our time more efficiently and can now concentrate our resources on other things instead of marketing.” Erkka Isotalo, Ravintolamestarit .
