The Village of Schaumburg needed to display customized information for residents and visitors across various sign locations.
Deployment & Usage
As a part of this installation, the digital signage display screens are being configured to provide customized information to residents, visitors, and commuters based on the various sign locations. Furthermore, the cloud-based management software is being utilized to remotely and dynamically manage informational content on all screens throughout the day.
The first phase of the digital signage installation is expected to last about 3 months. In addition to the normal municipal operations, the village owns and/or operates a minor league baseball stadium, commuter rail station, regional airport, performing arts center, and a convention center that includes a 500-room hotel, and 150,000 sq. feet exhibition space. Moreover, Schaumburg is home to the Woodfield Shopping Center, one of the largest indoor malls in America. Implementation of the entire network across all facilities of Schaumburg will span over a two-year period.
Why It Worked
Commenting on the adoption of Mvix digital signage solutions, Jack Netter, Assistant Director for Cultural Services, stated; “Technically, the system has been flawless. The ability to manage all displays from a central location, whether they are on our WAN or not, is fantastic. The authoring side is also very functional, making onsite schedule changes or troubleshooting very convenient. The (digital signage) players are simply bullet-proof. They just work. I’m accustomed to having some flexibility in terms of configuring hardware myself, but tech support has been so responsive, it’s been a non-issue. They’re very economical. The initial investment is extremely reasonable and the TCO, given the no-fee service makes the Mvix a no-brainer.”
