ARCHIVE: Adtec’s Approach

mediaHub-HDAs the show madness started easing up, I had time for a nice chat with the always cheery Ron Johnson, director of sales and marketing for Adtec Digital (N6825) this afternoon. After regaling me for a while with tales from the early days of digital signage (“we called our product 13 years ago a multimedia player device, but it was digital signage back before most people knew that term,” Ron said), he spoke with pride about a cool little device from Adtec called mediaHUB HD–a 1080i and 720p encoder that made its InfoComm debut this week.

Ron was particularly pleased that the mediaHUB, checking in at a price point around $12,000, is more than a real-time encoder. It also has a hard drive and can play the role of a scheduling and management server, among other chores. more…

Three Things at Broadcast Pix

At NAB, Broadcast Pix introduced three key upgrades to their line—in some ways these upgrades are even more pertinent to the InfoComm market, which sees them for the first time this week.

First: The introduction of an intermediate 2ME control surface. So now you can configure the system with either a soft touch screen, a compact 1ME, or the more expansive 2ME. Russell Whittaker, VP of Sales says the key difference between the 1ME and 2ME is not so much processing features and ease of use. There is more room to spread out the channels and subroutines. Also of course the 2ME config allows presentation users to dedicate 1ME to projectors and the other to broadcast (whether satellite or web). more…

X2O Media has a Different Angle on Digital Signage

x20xpresenter.jpgX2O Media gave me a great demo of their Xpresenter Player and server system for digital signage. The content creation is PowerPoint based but you certainly wouldn’t know that by just looking at it. In fact, there is an even simpler mode that uses templates to create some pretty CNN-like signage displays. Touch screens can be designed too and I was show one that has a lot of different possible applications. They sure could use a system like the one X2O Media showed me just to get people from one place to another here in the exhibit halls. Maybe we’ll see something like that next year. A system that actually worked from any entrance to get people quickly to the booth they want would be the greatest sales trick ever.
