Case Studies A Fast Food Restaurant Chain Serves Up Digital Signage One fast food chain in Southeast Asia adopted a network managed digital signage system two years ago for storefront digital media campaigns. Originally, this company used commercial-grade PCs as their hardware platform. However, the commercial systems were unreliable and suffered frequent downtime. Advertising revenue was lost as a result, which caused intense frustration on the part of the end users. In addition, commercial-grade system couldn’t support the current market demand for playback of high-definition content. As the previous signage system had fallen short of expectations for reliability and stability, the fast-food chain decided to phase-in an Advantech ARK-DS303 signage player. Advantech exceeded the customer’s expectations by offering the following features: • Compact-size, industrial-grade digital signage player based on the ARK-DS series. Supports high-definition video up to 1080p and is capable of integrating an optional TV-tuner to offer live TV content for digital signage • Robust operating system based on Windows XP Embedded with Enhanced Write Filtering (EWF) and watchdog timer • Powerful and cost efficient Campaign Manager digital signage software developed by one of Advantech’s software partners. Advantech offered lower total cost of ownership with long-term product support, less worry about continual maintenance, and spare parts support from our global service network.

Industrial grade products at competitive cost

On average, patients wait 15 minutes or more in a clinic waiting area before receiving doctor treatment. A new service, the MedicalTV network, facilitates improved communications between patients and staff, delivering in-depth information, satisfying interests and curiosity. The network delivers the latest information on health and wellness programs, pain management, physician directories, hospital events, local news and weather, and general hospital information directly to a patient’s room. NetAd Alliance teamed up with Advantech selecting the ARK-DS350 to roll out the MedicalTV Network, starting with the Obstetrics and Gynecology clinic in Taiwan. Patients receive the latest, up-to-date information in the form of media rich content that is not only visually stimulating but also very informative.

Digital Signage has Evolved into a Multi-Sensory Experience Digital Signage is at the forefront of digital media distribution and can transmit digital images, information or advertising to single or multiple locations simultaneously. Advantech’s development of digital signage hardware platforms focuses on the needs of different customer groups and has led to development of a full range of products. These include digital signage players, digital signage displays, as well as interactive digital signage stations. Along with traditional high image quality full-HD video playback, interactive Flash-based special effects can be easily demonstrated, and in addition, the multi-touch screen mimics many of the functions of a self-service station. Advantech’s digital signage products can play multiple types of information at the same time, an essential feature for digital advertising, public transportation displays, emergency notification systems, as well as multi-purpose displays used in universities and colleges, electronic billboards, and other types of public and private applications. The Advantech Digital Signage Station leads the way for consumers to browse for products and services while at the same time watching customized content and important information.

Digital Signage Solutions Why Choose an Advantech Industrial-Grade Solution Over Consumer Hardware? Founded in 1983, Advantech is putting significant investment into developing and providing application-ready and service-ready computing platforms for digital signage, self-service, and interactive display markets. And of course, there is the choice between consumer grade and industrial grade platforms. While consumer-grade hardware entices buyers with low initial cost, it is not generally a desirable choice in terms of total cost of ownership (TCO). Here are some of the advantages of our industrial grade solutions: • Much longer life expectancy, even under 24/7 operation • Able to handle much wider temperature ranges • Excellent engineering support • Availability of customized BIOS and XPe images

Case Studies A Fast Food Restaurant Chain Serves Up Digital Signage One fast food chain in Southeast Asia adopted a network managed digital signage system two years ago for storefront digital media campaigns. Originally, this company used commercial-grade PCs as their hardware platform. However, the commercial systems were unreliable and suffered frequent downtime. Advertising revenue was lost as a result, which caused intense frustration on the part of the end users. In addition, commercial-grade system couldn’t support the current market demand for playback of high-definition content. As the previous signage system had fallen short of expectations for reliability and stability, the fast-food chain decided to phase-in an Advantech ARK-DS303 signage player. Advantech exceeded the customer’s expectations by offering the following features: • Compact-size, industrial-grade digital signage player based on the ARK-DS series. Supports high-definition video up to 1080p and is capable of integrating an optional TV-tuner to offer live TV content for digital signage • Robust operating system based on Windows XP Embedded with Enhanced Write Filtering (EWF) and watchdog timer • Powerful and cost efficient Campaign Manager digital signage software developed by one of Advantech’s software partners. Advantech offered lower total cost of ownership with long-term product support, less worry about continual maintenance, and spare parts support from our global service network.

On average, patients wait 15 minutes or more in a clinic waiting area before receiving doctor treatment. A new service, the MedicalTV network, facilitates improved communications between patients and staff, delivering in-depth information, satisfying interests and curiosity. The network delivers the latest information on health and wellness programs, pain management, physician directories, hospital events, local news and weather, and general hospital information directly to a patient’s room. NetAd Alliance teamed up with Advantech selecting the ARK-DS350 to roll out the MedicalTV Network, starting with the Obstetrics and Gynecology clinic in Taiwan. Patients receive the latest, up-to-date information in the form of media rich content that is not only visually stimulating but also very informative.

Digital Signage has Evolved into a Multi-Sensory Experience Digital Signage is at the forefront of digital media distribution and can transmit digital images, information or advertising to single or multiple locations simultaneously. Advantech’s development of digital signage hardware platforms focuses on the needs of different customer groups and has led to development of a full range of products. These include digital signage players, digital signage displays, as well as interactive digital signage stations. Along with traditional high image quality full-HD video playback, interactive Flash-based special effects can be easily demonstrated, and in addition, the multi-touch screen mimics many of the functions of a self-service station. Advantech’s digital signage products can play multiple types of information at the same time, an essential feature for digital advertising, public transportation displays, emergency notification systems, as well as multi-purpose displays used in universities and colleges, electronic billboards, and other types of public and private applications. The Advantech Digital Signage Station leads the way for consumers to browse for products and services while at the same time watching customized content and important information.
