Wireless Ronin Breaks Down Barriers to Digital Signage With Samsung's New Smart Signage Displays
MINNEAPOLIS, MN, Feb 28, 2013 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
Wireless Ronin Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: RNIN), a leading digital
marketing technologies company, has aligned with Samsung Electronics
America, the number one worldwide provider of commercial LCD
displays, to offer a breakthrough in digital signage solutions for
retail, QSRs or any business looking to transform how they engage
their customers and increase sales without the cost, complication and
limitations of traditional digital signage.
The revolutionary digital marketing solution combines the fourth
generation of Wireless Ronin's RoninCast(R) software with Samsung's
new Samsung Smart Signage Platform displays, both of which debuted
this week at the Digital Signage Expo (DSE) in Las Vegas.
Samsung's Smart Signage displays include a built-in CPU that powers
an Internet connection and a new open-source media player, allowing
for cloud-based video playback and interactive content delivered by
RoninCast software, without needing a separate device. Replacing
external media player devices and monitors today with integrated
ultra-flat and lightweight, large-format smart displays ensures
cleaner and simpler installation and operational processes that can
save both time and money.
When powered by RoninCast 4.0 software, Samsung displays can present
vivid, engaging and dynamic content, including real-time data
updates, custom industry content, and food service content like menus
and coupons. RoninCast software facilitates easy promotion and
limited time offer implementation, as well as the integration of key
brand messaging, local community news and social media feeds. The
integrated platform gives businesses a true plug-and-play solution,
from content creation and installation, to content validation,
software upgrades and network monitoring.
"We're excited to partner with Samsung as one of the earliest
adopters of their Smart Signage Platform," said Scott Koller,
president and CEO of Wireless Ronin. "Despite the clear and
compelling benefits digital marketing can deliver, deploying digital
signage, especially across multiple locations, can seem like a
daunting and expensive project. RoninCast 4.0 software, combined with
Samsung's new Smart Signage Platform, dramatically simplifies
deployment and ongoing management, breaking down these barriers and
opening the field to a much larger universe of potential users."
"Samsung's open-source digital signage software ties in perfectly
with the new HTML5 capabilities of RoninCast 4.0 software, providing
clear advantages for the end user by lowering costs, simplifying
installation, improving uptime, and ultimately increasing the ROI for
our customers," continued Koller. "An embedded device with video
playback and browser capabilities is something WRT has been asking of
the display manufacturers for a long time, and Samsung is one of the
first to respond with their new Smart Signage Platform. We plan to
leverage its capabilities with our new RoninCast 4.0 software
Summary of Benefits from Combined Offering:
-- Rather than requiring a separate display and player, the single
Samsung Smart Signage Platform solution allows for more efficient and
less costly installation and ongoing support.
-- Samsung's Smart Signage Platform interface enables RoninCast 4.0
software to gather information from the displays for better monitoring
and support, including remote management of the player and displays,
like controlling power, color, and other adjustments.
-- Samsung's Smart Signage Platform eliminates player expense and
maintenance issues, reduces cabling and complexity, and allows cleaner
installations, featuring extremely thin displays mounted virtually
flush with walls.
-- The combined platform takes advantage of features introduced in
RoninCast 4.0 software, including omni-channel capabilities using
HTML5 to push content to multiple channels and devices.
