Peerless-AV Contracted By Minor League Baseball as Display Partner

Peerless digital signage ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. and AURORA, Ill., Feb. 26, 2019 — Minor League Baseball™ (MiLB™) today announced that Peerless-AV® — a leading manufacturer and provider of audio-visual products — will be the “Official Digital Display Partner of MiLB.” Among the many extensions of the strategic partnership, Peerless-AV will be integrated into MiLB’s existing partnerships with Allegiant Air and ISM Connect to establish it as the exclusive provider of screen technologies for Minor League Baseball.

In July 2018, Minor League Baseball established a partnership with ISM Connect to launch the Allegiant Airline Network, the largest in-venue digitally connected smart screen network in sports and entertainment. Beginning this season, select MiLB clubs will have the opportunity to participate in the digital network, with the technology furnished by Peerless-AV. More than 50 MiLB ballparks are scheduled to feature Peerless-AV technology by Opening Day 2020.

The installation process of Peerless-AV displays is underway for Opening Night 2019, and Minor League Baseball and Peerless-AV are planning further placements during the year. Throughout the partnership term, Peerless-AV technology will be incorporated into numerous locations — such as concourse LCD displays, video boards and ribbon boards — to further boost fan engagement and partnership opportunities for MiLB and its teams. As clubs continue to make enhancements to their state-of-the-art ballparks, Peerless-AV will be a valuable resource throughout the design and installation process.

“Minor League Baseball is committed to driving innovation and enhancing ballpark experiences for our fans. Peerless-AV’s commitment to be at the forefront of digital display technology aligns perfectly with our vision for being a leader in authentic fan engagement,” said David Wright, Chief Marketing and Commercial Officer for Minor League Baseball. “This partnership will allow us to continue making deeper and more meaningful connections with our fans and position MiLB as a dynamic leader in sport and entertainment.”

“Creating and implementing high-quality display solutions to enhance the fan experience is a key focus for our team at Peerless-AV,” said Nick Belcore, Executive Vice President for Peerless-AV. “With a shared goal of increasing fan engagement through the use of innovative technology, we are excited to be partnering with Minor League Baseball on this initiative.”

Case Study – LED video wall Epic Sports Bar Samsung

Colossal Direct View LED Display For Bar

Peerless digital signage Northern Quest Resort & Casino, located in Spokane, Washington, offers luxurious accommodations, Vegas-style gambling, a spa, and over one dozen restaurants, bars, and lounges. One of the most popular spots in the resort is EPIC Sports Bar, a comfortable sports bar featuring upscale pub fare.

Open daily at 7 am, EPIC’s guests can enjoy viewing sporting events at any time of day – breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

Like all sports bars, EPIC’s crowds and varying event types make high quality displays a must for patrons. However, constructing and maintaining a large screen was a challenge. The bar originally relied on an old TV screen, which was then upgraded to a movie screen and two sizable projectors that would play content. However it was difficult, if not impossible to clean the screen and when the HVAC system was in use, the screen would shake. Further, the projectors proved to be quite noisy and replacement costs were astronomical.

The Solution

With these issues in place, Northern Quest Resort & Casino decided to seek out a digital signage option for EPIC that would best showcase sporting events and entertainment, while meeting the resort’s high aesthetic standards.

In summer 2017, the resort began conducting research, turning to its longstanding installation partner, YESCO, for help with the project. YESCO next sought to find a display and mount that would best meet EPIC’s needs. Based on past experience and a strong partnership, YESCO selected Samsung for its IFH LED displays. With trusted recommendations, along with video wall expertise, quality hardware, and a comfortable price point, YESCO chose Peerless-AV as the mount manufacturer for the project.

An additional benefit of working with Peerless-AV was SEAMLESS by Peerless-AV ® , the company’s LED video wall integration program that provided start-to-finish support throughout the project. Peerless-AV’s dedicated SEAMLESS LED Solutions Team sets the bar for high quality design, incorporating a dynamic group of structural and mechanical engineers, product managers, project managers, installers, and sales and service personnel, which were all available to YESCO and Northern Quest Resort & Casino.

Newly enhanced directories create seamless digital experience for shoppers

NEW YORK, Oct. 31, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Simon, a global leader in retail real estate, is rolling out new, interactive digital directories to nine centers in time for the busy Holiday season with a broader roll out planned for next year.

New interactive digital directories are currently in use at King of Prussia. (PRNewsFoto/Simon). Click for full size.

These enhanced, innovative digital directories incorporate the latest in digital wayfinding and interactive capabilities and are designed to provide shoppers with convenient access to what’s going on at their favorite mall through an engaging new user interface.

“Simon is a leader in this space with an unmatched network of over 175 screens deployed across the country,” said Mikael Thygesen, Simon’s Chief Marketing Officer. “It’s an important customer amenity that our shoppers interact with quite regularly.  We felt it was time to develop the next generation of this technology and elevate the consumer experience even further.  Judging from the strong positive feedback received from shoppers already, I think we’ve achieved our goal.”

These next generation units use 65″, LCD, full HD touchscreens and are strategically located in high-traffic areas, coming to life when a shopper walks within a few feet of the screen. The digital interactive maps highlight the location of shops and services and display the fastest route for shoppers to take.  Shoppers also have the option to send those directions to their mobile device through a variety of digital communication channels (beacons, NFC, SMS, etc.). A universal search option allows for a quick search of stores, dining options and services.  Information on the latest offers and deals available from retailers and restaurants equips shoppers with all the information they need to make their shopping trip productive and enjoyable.  In addition, the digital directories utilize the latest location-based marketing technology to allow brands to connect directly with their customers with real-time, relevant information.

The new units were unveiled as part of King of Prussia’s grand reopening festivities in August and are also installed at Clarksburg Premium Outlets (Clarksburg, MD); Copley Place (Boston, MA); Fashion Centre at Pentagon City (Arlington, VA); Florida Mall (Orlando, FL); Forum Shops at Caesars Palace (Las Vegas, NV); The Galleria (Houston, TX); The Westchester (White Plains, NY); Stanford Shopping Center (Palo Alto, CA) and Del Amo Fashion Center (Torrance, CA). Installations to expand the network will continue on a rolling basis.

Next Gen Wayfinding Kiosk

These next generation units were created in partnership with Gable, an award-winning provider of digital displays that helps businesses connect and engage people through effective visual communications, and Acquire Digital, whose digital signage, wayfinding and interactive development tools are being used by Blue Chip brand names around the world.

From Acquire Digital®

Acquire Digital® navigating across the USA,

with its new Wayfinding kiosk solution.

Acquire Digital® are very excited in the release of its new interactive Wayfinder kiosk solution, rolling out across America in Simon℠Shopping malls. Navigating large locations such as shopping malls can be difficult and time consuming, with traditional printed static maps often adding to the confusion. Digital Directories reduce the time taken by shoppers to find their destination by displaying the most efficiently and useful route for shoppers to take.
The Acquire Wayfinder has been developed over a number of years to produce a simple and fun interactive experience that can be installed in Shopping Malls, Airports, Exhibition spaces, City Centres and anywhere visitors need to find where to go. Over the years, it has evolved from a simple routing / mapping system to something that makes the shopping experience enjoyable and intelligent so that users can be guided not only to their destination, but also receive supplementary information related to their destination or along a route.
For Simon, Acquire Digital have used their highly configurable UI/UX system and customized their wayfinder to match the branding and requirements of Simon, whilst integrating with the Simon data to avoid duplicate entry of store details through the normal Wayfinder CMS. This also allows for more than just Wayfinding, but advertising opportunities and information about offers and events to engage with the shoppers.
The new units were unveiled as part of King of Prussia’s grand reopening festivities in August and are also installed at Clarksburg Premium Outlets (Clarksburg, MD); Copley Place (Boston, MA); Fashion Centre at Pentagon City (Arlington, VA); Florida Mall (Orlando, FL); Forum Shops at Caesars Palace (Las Vegas, NV); The Galleria (Houston, TX); The Westchester (White Plains, NY); Stanford Shopping Center (Palo Alto, CA) and Del Amo Fashion Center (Torrance, CA). Installations to expand the network will continue on a rolling basis.
The Acquire Wayfinder consists of a fully interactive, live 3D map, with multi-touch pinch & zoom, and a number of different methods to choose the destination. Even the map itself is interactive as it allows users to touch any store and find relevant information about their destination, and an animation and turn-by-turn directions of the best route(s) to their destination.
Shoppers have the option to send their chosen route to their mobile device by scanning a QR code, activating a built-in NFC tag or sending an SMS message to take their directions with them on the go.
Acquire Digital® have incorporated Beacon technology for onward routing, cameras for user recognition and audience measurement, and many other modern technologies which means the technology is always similar or better than the experiences users expect nowadays.
This project has been a huge accomplishment for the Acquire team, in collaboration with Baltimore based partners Gable.
About Acquire
Acquire Digital® has been developing digital signage and interactive solutions since 1997. With a range of products including Digital Signage, Wayfinding and interactive development tools, plus their ability to customize their offerings, Acquire has been working with many Blue Chip brands over the years in countries across the globe. From their headquarters in Leicester (UK) and offices in Boston (USA) and Macau (Asia) they provide a complete software solution from design to install and operation, whilst partnering with best of breed companies to fulfil amazing technologies across most vertical markets.

Excerpt – Real-Time Content Based on Age, Gender, Mood and Audience Size derived from Facial Recognition biometrics

NEW YORK, NY — A campaign for GMC’s Acadia raises the bar for consumer engagement by combining facial recognition and digital screens. The campaign marks the first time that responsive facial recognition has been used to serve personalized content to digital displays.

Facial recognition detects the gender, facial expression, age, and composition of passing audiences and then serves real-time, branded content to audience. Interactive games are included, both for children and adults.

Posterscope USA along with Quividi, EYE Corp Media and Engage M1 developed it and it ran for 8 weeks at the Santa Monica Place shopping mall. Posterscope and their partners fitted eight digital out-of-home screens in Santa Monica Place Mall with video sensors and Quividi’s audience platform to anonymously detected a passing shopper’s gender, whether they were alone or with a group, or part of a couple or a family.

“Consumers see up to 5,000 ads every single day, and we wanted to create a responsive, engaging campaign that cut through the noise,” said Jeff Tan, head of strategy at Posterscope USA. “By leveraging cutting-edge technology to deliver real-time dynamic content, we helped GMC connect with audiences via personalized location-based communication strategies. This proved particularly effective in the crowded environment that is the Santa Monica Place shopping mall.”

Free Trend Report: Why Location Is the New Currency of Marketing

Free Trend Report: Why Location Is the New Currency of MarketingFinding effective ways to deliver branded messages in today’s complex media environment is one of the biggest challenges facing advertisers. Traditional methods of advertising have become less effective as consumers spend less time in places where marketers have traditionally had an advantage in reaching them. In addition, consumer attention has fragmented across multiple channels as media options and device platforms increasingly diversify.

Active consumers spend money, and while they are going about their daily routine, they are also actively looking for information. According to Google, more than 50% of all mobile searches have local intent, and 17% of search happens while consumers are on the go.

Digital Out-of-Home (DOOH) advertising, also known as Digital Place-based (DPb) media, utilizes strategically placed, networked digital signage displays to reach on-the-go consumers while they are outside of their home with highly targeted messages. Location-based mobile and digital out-of-home media are part of a larger multiscreen ecosystem that effectively amplifies brand messages to create a deeper level of engagement with active consumers.

Why Location Is the New Currency of Marketing is aimed at CMOs, media buyers and strategists and provides insight into why marketers are increasingly shifting their advertising dollars to these rapidly emerging media platforms.

Highlights from Why Location Is the New Currency of Marketing include:

Digital Sign & Ticketing Kiosk – New Project ‘The Field Museum” with Livewire Digital

What’s more Natural than a Ticketing Kiosk?

ticketing kiosk digital sign
Click to see full size image of the ticketing kiosk digital signage project. Enclosures by Kiosk Innovations,

July 19, 2016 – YORK, PA. The Field Museum in Chicago takes pride in being one of the world’s largest natural history museums in the world. Their diverse array of permanent exhibitions and quality educational programs attract over 2 million visitors annually.

The Field Museum is constantly looking for ways to enrich their guests’ journeys and engaging them through interactive ways to continuously improve the experience they receive. Field Museum had recently implemented a new ticketing system from Ticket Return, and they soon recognized that they could improve their customer’s experience by investing in self-service ticketing kiosks and digital signage.

Ticket Return reached out to Livewire Digital, based on Livewire’s long-running experience in self-service ticketing, to create a new engaging kiosk. The kiosk had to provide guests easy and quick navigation through the product purchase process and allow them to view and select show times for various exhibits. The kiosks were also to power a secondary display screen to show advertisements and messages about upcoming events and exhibits to guests.

Going Live

The ticketing kiosks were ‘thrown into the fire’ as they were made live during the week between Christmas and New Year’s, historically one of the museum’s busiest periods each year. During the first week of their release the kiosks worked flawlessly while handling roughly 20% of all sales. David McCracken, Livewire Digital’s CEO, stated that “Immediately after seeing the robustness of our system and the integration of ticketing with our easy-to-use digital signage management, Field Museum requested more digital signs. Having a single-source for support and one management interface to handle all aspects of their digital needs greatly reduces overall maintenance costs and long-term total cost of ownership.”

Field Museum personnel agree that ‘history was made’ during that first week of operation and beyond. The new kiosks have added to their guests’ journeys, offering an engaging and time-saving start to every new exploration of the museum’s story into life on Earth.
