Context-aware Retail Signage: Clas Ohlson - In the Clas Ohlson flagship store located in the recently opened Mall of Scandinavia in Stockholm, NEC teamed up with SMS/Smart Media Solutions, and Smartsign to create a new digitalized display solution that interacts with customers and shows commercial messages.
First, the screen was prepared with leafengine sensor technology and Smartsign software in the integrated computer - the Slot-in PC located on the back of the screen. Next, the screen was mounted in the custom made and stable stand, created by SMS/Smart Media Solutions. Two sensors were installed – one sensor senses if someone gets closer than one meter to the screen and the other one, a light-sensor, senses when the product is lifted from the shelf at the stand. The sensors were calibrated to be adapted to local light conditions. When the sensors are triggered, new messages appear on the screen. The stand integrates a professional NEC 40” display, leafengine sensor technology, two sensors and Smartsign software, along with the retail products from Kärcher and a product demonstration video. All in all, Clas Ohlson got a new integrated in-store display that engages with customers through a digital visual solution.
NEC leafengine - Making digital signage interactive with leafengine, a unified sensor - software connectivity that enables access to a broad catalogue of sensors, including gender and age classification, proximity detection, NFC, QR-Codes and many others.
Digital Signage, InStore Assistant, Self Service and Touch Mirror
The connection to the Onlineshop is ensured by the Digital Signage solution, a self service terminal, the InStore Assistant as a customer consulting tool for employees, as well as a mirror with built-in touch screen.
The 80 "digital signage screens in the shop window and as video walls in the checkout area play product videos and image pictures.
With the help of the wall-mounted self-service terminal and the 2m large mirror with built-in touch-screen, customers can capture articles via scanners and query availabilities, sizes and colors. By linking to Omnichannel processes, the articles can be ordered directly. Delivery options Ship-to-Store or Ship-to-Home are available. With the help of the InStore Assistant on smartphones, customer consultants can request item stocks and order items from other stores or the onlineshop for the customer.
The BÄR GmbH a manufactory for comfortable shoes with 22 stores throughout Germany uses for the sales consulting a combination of Guided Selling and Digital Signage .
The employees control over their mobile device, the content that will be shown on screens or video screens at the POS. This can be an emotional video as well as product or availability information or matching accessories.
Successful reference project @ the Adler Modemärkte AG shows how they benefits from the digitization of the sales floor.
The sales promotion applications are deployed at various locations of the Adler Company. In all locations the solutions demonstrate how digital solutions and personal service are intertwined and thus give the sales personnel more time to take care of customers and focus on their core tasks.
• InStore Assistant - sales advice with mobile devices
• Interactive fitting room - browse the collection and get inspired
• Digital signage at the POS - for guaranteed more attention
• Cab Occupancy App - displays occupancy

Strimy is a very simple and versatile digital signage service: it’s the ideal solution for strong and effective visual communication. It can be used for information purposes, advertising and/or entartainment.
The client-server technology allows you to manage hundreds of monitors, at the same time, located anywhere. With a few clicks on the web interface, you can upload multimedia files into the cloud, define rss sources and schedule your contents.
The monitors can be managed individually or jointly, and at your convenience.
Strimy has been natively developed for Raspberry Pi.
It needs a 24/24h internet connection; however it’s not a streaming service: the scheduled contents are downloaded to local memory before being played, so it’s ensured to work even with intermittent connection, without bandwith consumption.
If the requirements are satisfied, Strimy is ready to work: at first boot you’ll see on screen an unique code, that has to be entered from the web interface to complete activation.

Car Dealer Flagship Store with LED Video Wall - In and around Düsseldorf, the Moll Group stands for exclusive “car performance”. Its showroom received a technical upgrade for the McLaren, Lamborghini und Aston Martin premium sports car brands.
It is obvious: super sports cars have to be presented in style. At Moll in Düsseldorf the decision was made to use a generously dimensioned, high-resolution LED wall. The feed goes through a system supplied by a company called ~sedna and is realised by means of Apple components. Sports car customers are not only receptive to visual stimulation, though, a full, rich sound is usually also important to them. That is why the GOERTZ team relied on a powerful Bose sound system for the showroom, installing a total of 16 ceiling loudspeakers and four ceiling subwoofers.
Individuality was the motto for this store concept – in line with this, Moll as the customer gets to create and manage content himself. The LED wall as well as multi-zone sound and lighting are controlled very comfortably via an iPad.
