Kowloon, Hong Kong, 2008/08/20 - Leading Linux-based digital signage solutions provider 1-2-1VIEW has installed its turnkey digital signage solution at the Kowloon Shangri-La Hotel, one of Hong Kong’s top 5-star hotels.
The Kowloon Shangri-La Hotel engaged 1-2-1VIEW to replace a legacy system with a new digital signage system to keep guests informed of activities in various key locations as well as weather forecasts for the week.
Using the 1-2-1VIEW’s Ninja N207 media players, the hotel’s digital signage network displays video and still images on 19 plasma and LCD screens located prominently throughout the premises, including the lobby area and function rooms. The screens range from 15” to 50” in size and function both in portrait and landscape orientations and are capable of streaming standard definition video.
The network utilizes 1-2-1VIEW’s latest software Version 3.0 featuring an Event Entry Scheduler which enables administrators to set validity periods for content and automatic switch back to default images after the content expires.
“For a 5-star hotel like ours it’s paramount to be able to display up-to-date or even up-to-minute information about what’s on in our various locations instantly to ensure customers are well informed at all times,“ said Billy Chiu, Information Technology Manager for the Kowloon Shangri-La Hotel. “We really needed a system that is not only reliable but also flexible and easy to use and 1-2-1VIEW fulfilled all of our requirements.”
Designed with client needs and maximum versatility in mind, the 1-2-1VIEW Digital Signage Management Software also connects through a local area network to the internet to deliver live data feeds such as weather reports, newscasts or financial updates in a multi-zone set up.
For the project, 1-2-1VIEW collaborated with local systems integrator Cyber-On-Air (Asia) Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of publicly listed New World Mobility Holdings Ltd, which provided network integration, hardware installation and service support for the project.
