Flat Screen Mounts, AV Furniture, Stands & Trolleys Sales & Consultancy
We recently received an inquiry from an advertising company based in London. As with many initial conversations, the customer was not really too sure what questions to ask, let alone what answers to expect.
Having talked-through the traditional method of distributing audio and video signals from a central source, and then routing cables to each monitor point, it was decided this was not practical due to the nature of the building and planning restrictions.
Our technical sales chap was able to offer an entirely different solution, offering far fewer cabling issues and much more flexibility with regard to the advertising content.
There were eight locations where there was a requirement for small advertising screens, mostly on the backs of doors, all were out-of-sight of the bar’s employees, hence they would need to be fixed onto the surfaces securely.
We were able to recommend the use of 8 Apple iPads, located and fixed into position using Premier wall mounting brackets. As these iPads would run the advertising independently, the only cabling requirement would be a mains-power supply plug to be located close to the screen.
Each iPad would be programmed with MP4 adverting that would auto-run, when the iPad was powered-on. As each of the iPads would hold the adverting independently, there would not be a danger of a supply source failing to deliver to all the screens. Historically if the power was accidentally turned-off at the source equipment, then all the advertising would stop, if the supply locked-up then the advertising would fail, then of course there was the human component to worry about, either accidental or malicious.
To securely mount the iPads to the doors, the Premier Mounts IPM-110 was specified as this was a secure mount that blocked the access to the control buttons, including the ‘Home’ button, this would prevent unauthorised adjustments or changes.
The IPM-110 mount is just one option available from the US manufacturer Premier Mounts, the extensive range available from Premier allows the Apple iPad to be mounted in many new applications in many different ways.
Having costed-out the differences between the traditional way of distributing the signal around the building or using our proposal, it was estimated that there would be a 42% cost saving. Not only would our suggested solution be more flexible and potentially more reliable and robust, it actually worked-out to be less expensive. If ever there was a ‘win-win’ situation, then this was it.
