The MeetingMinder™ PoE interactive room sign allows a single cable to supply both power and data to conference room signs.
ATLANTA, GA – April 5, 2011 – Visix, Inc., a leading digital signage software provider, has added a Power over Ethernet model to their MeetingMinder™ interactive room signs line. The 15-inch interactive display allows a single Ethernet cable to supply both power and data to the room sign, addressing concerns of both physical concealment and AC proximity for power bricks.
“We’re always looking for ways to make our customers’ jobs easier. We launched our room sign line to help our digital signage clients meet a need that no other product could, and the Power over Ethernet model is the next evolution in that process,” says Trey Hicks, Vice President of Sales for Visix.
The company added interactive room signs as a natural extension of their digital signage solutions because customers wanted to extend their digital signage communications to meeting room signs. Competitive products only allowed users to display room and event schedules. Visix MeetingMinders™ were designed to provide a more versatile solution, allowing clients to leverage their digital signage software to publish a variety of media and messages in addition to schedules.
Ongoing client feedback revealed that installation regulations and retrofitting can make placing room sign power supplies cumbersome in some environments. In response, Visix actively researched the development of a Power over Ethernet option to address those issues and reduce client costs while still meeting building and safety regulations.
“It’s about the customer experience. We’ve had great success in the market with our room signs and we’re constantly analyzing how our products can maximize clients’ return on their investment. We’ll continue to look for new technologies to make organizational communications faster, easier and more economical,” says Sean Matthews, President of Visix.
Visix, Inc. designs, develops and supports a suite of browser-based digital signage products that allows users to create, manage and schedule organizational communications from anywhere and to deliver messages and media to virtually any endpoint. The company offers digital signage software, interactive room signs, and applications for targeted messaging to desktops and portable devices.
