Casino Lugano strikes it lucky with ONELAN

Casino Lugano is situated on the lakeside, in the central area of ​​the city of Lugano itself. They wanted a solution that could manage multiple video sources on one screen, and chose digital signage to do this. Having seen ONELAN at ISE 2011, they chose their digital signage for its user friendliness.

Casino Lugano needed to manage 20 screens in real time with different content (publicity,promo,tv) remotely from an executive office.

22 ONELAN Net-top-boxes (NTB) are installed and one Omni-server.

Exact change attracts with ONELAN

Spanish currency exchange company Maccorp Exact Change has a new digital window to attract its clients at the airport. The project includes a video wall network operating in Madrid Barajas Airport, supporting seven foreign exchange retail locations. The programming and management of the network has been developed by Realisation and it is managed from the company’s offices in London. The digital signage application uses ONELAN and the displays are ultra narrow bezel screens. The project was developed in just three months and incorporates intelligent programming to present 80 currency offers in 11 languages across five different video wall screen configurations.

KWK Knurów installs ONELAN

KWK Knurów is part of a group of mines owned by Kompania Weglowa in Poland. Kompania Weglowa comprises fifteen individual mines and is the biggest coal mining operation in the European Union. It is located in Silesia in the south of Poland. The mine employs 60,000 people, and produces 40,000 tonnes of coal annually.

The mine management wanted a cost effective method of displaying important health and safety information to both miners and head office staff. Kompania Weglowa selected ONELAN digital signage as it represented the most suitable solution for their requirements.

They have ten ONELAN Net-top-box (NTB) 510 subscriber units and ten ONELAN NTB 510 publisher units that are used for Health and safety training and company presentations for coal mine workers.

All screens are located in the main ​​staff training area; it is too dusty underground for the screens to operate.

Content is managed by Department of Health and Safety and not by the mine itself.

The ONELAN NTBs drive 46” and 50” screens. There are also two video walls (one is 3x3 and the other 2x3).

Euroforum choose ONELAN for a centralised digital signage solution

San Lorenzo de El Escorial is a little village near Madrid. Felipe II chose it in XVI ages to build the Real Monasterio. It is considered the 8th Wonder of the World and is a World Heritage site. This building is now the Euroforum headquarters dedicated to specialized training and important business meetings.

The building was completely restored in 1991 for Miguel de Orion, to become the biggest centre for management development in Europe.

In 2011 a major modernisation programme was undertaken including the installation of
audiovisual equipment and an ambitious digital signage installation.

There were two requirements:
Firstly the updating of existing audio and projection equipment in different rooms and halls and secondly to create a dynamic comunication system in the main courtyard, reception and entrance hall, and conference rooms.

Digital Signage was chosen as it allows the centralized management of the entire network, the ability to instantly update the content and information, and the ability to integrate with other systems.

ONELAN was chosen for its stability, because it is Linux based and because it can be integrated e.g with a room booking system with Google Calendar or Outlook, or with TV channels and the ability to transmit live events with streaming.

22” flat screen monitors each driven by a ONELAN Net-top-box (NTB) are located outside each hall and show meeting information.

An additional system is installed in the reception area with a 40” monitor driven by another ONELAN NTB
In the main courtyard there are two large format videowalls both 5 x 3 40” LCD monitors with thin border. Each videowall is run by two ONELAN NTB 5505 player, and shows four simultaneous videos, flash animation, TV images and live events from the halls.

The biggest challenge was to install digital signage system in the main courtyard whereby it is fully integrated between the stone walls of the building. RPS Audiovisual worked with architects to get the best practical solution and aesthetics. A unique metal was designed to facilitate access and maintenance.

Thomastown Recreation and Aquatic Centre Works out with ONELAN

The Thomastown Recreation and Aquatic Centre (TRAC) project in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia is a $40M redevelopment of an existing aquatic centre into a state-of-the-art aquatic and leisure facility at the centrepiece of the local City Of Whittlesea council. It features an indoor sports stadium, indoor heated water park, 50m swimming pool, outdoor water park and fully equipped health club, fitness studios and consulting suites.

TRAC required an easy to use and powerful digital signage solution that would inform and entertain visitors to the centre. The solution had to be centrally managed and enable staff to instantly change the displays with a range of content such as Video, TV, web content, Powerpoint, Text and Flash.

The first piece of technology that visitors see as they arrive at the Thomastown recreation and aquatic centre is a 2 x 2 Video wall facing the carpark. These 4x 52” displays reside behind laminated anti-reflective glass and are driven by a ONELAN Net-top-box (NTB)
5505 media player. The screens displays centre information, forthcoming events, welcome messages, Live Video and Powerpoint presentations.

The TRAC reception is an open area fronted with large floor to ceiling windows, with doors leading directly to the main reception desk. At the desk there are 3 x 46” commercial displays side by side each displaying content from a ONELAN NTB 510. The screens display a mix of pricing, classes, events and local news.

The hallway and gym areas experience heavy foot traffic making them excellent locations for two 40” Touch screens. These screens provide class information and schedules for visitors. A user is able select from a range of classes and watch a video of that class. The content is created and managed by the centre marketing team.

The staff at TRAC created all of the digital signage background layouts and touch content. The Touch content required configuration of playlists and zones to trigger videos and display schedules. The solution was designed and managed by the marketing team at the centre.
