It’s easy to get lost in the ambience at the Medicine Eat Station, but it wasn’t simple creating that experience. Splitting an HD image into four pieces, rotating them 90 degrees and controlling when they playback isn’t a typical digital signage requirement.
The Keywest Technology digital signage system is the linchpin upon which the Medicine Eat Station digital window hangs. It offers all of the playback, scheduling and control capabilities of the company’s popular single-channel media controller –except it does that for each of four independent channels, or streams, of video. With the multi-head system, the restaurant can playback a single HDV (high definition video) source as a Windows Media HD file and break it up into four separate pieces –one each for four portrait oriented plasma monitors.
