Wireless Signage

Avocent is certainly blowing the wireless technology horn when it comes to possibilities for digital signage. The company introduced Wednesday its Emerge MPX 1500T HD multipoint extender transmitter as its latest offering in this category. Basically, it’s a smaller than ever before wireless transmitter for distributing HD content from one source to multiple destinations.

Avocent executive Matt Nelson told me improvements in such technology in recent months have made wireless a much more attractive option in the signage game, largely because of the speed of deployment of such systems and improvements to Avocent’s web interface and system management software, allowing long-range management.

Matt agrees that, in many ways, the hardest part of setting up such a wireless application for digital signage involves figuring out where wireless is feasible, and where it isn’t for such applications. His colleague, John Jensen, and others at Avocent are teaching classes through InfoComm and elsewhere these days on the subject of how to conduct site surveys to make such determinations, and we at Sound & Video Contractor plan to be covering this important issue in the near future.
