Digital signage for Healthcare, made easy with ScreenScape Connect

Widescreen TV screens are everywhere these days. By now it’s rather commonplace to see large format display screens in the waiting area of a local health clinic. The applications are endless. Generally they are used to educate, inform, and entertain guests while they wait to see a health professional, and they do so in a manner that is more hygienic than printed literature which can transfer germs.

Turning on the boob tube is ok, but why not take advantage of an opportunity to reach a captive audience by using those screens for messaging that is more timely, more relevant and more helpful for your patients? Digital signage used to mean thousands of dollars in equipment and a messy IT project. Not anymore. As our friends at Trillium Health help to show in this video…it’s now simply a matter of plugging in a small yet smart device that turns any TV into a connected ScreenScape display. Enjoy!

Digital Signage made easy for Retail Financial Services

We couldn’t be more pleased to see so many banks and credit unions using ScreenScape to power their inbranch media. It wasn’t long ago that you could visit the lobby of your neighbourhood credit union and you’d expect to be entertained by cable television. When banks use conventional television programming to keep their visitors occupied they are missing a great opportunity to engage their members with timely and relevant messages which might then lead to interesting and worthwhile conversations inside the branch.

What has changed? Well, the technology has gotten much better and much more cost-effective! ScreenScape Connect offers a simple plug & play solution that can now turn any TV into a dynamic digital sign that anyone can program. Plus, at $40 per device per month, the nominal cost to operate a large scale network can now fit within almost any budget.

In this short video you can catch a glimpse of how our friends at CFF Bank are using ScreenScape Connect today.

Digital Signage Made Easy for Automotive with ScreenScape Connect

ScreenScape Connect is changing the way businesses think about digital signage. This simple plug & play device is not only cost-effective. It really helps to simplify the setup process so you can tap into the power of place-based marketing without the pain of a messy IT project. Our friends at Xtreme Tire Garage were kind enough to let us shoot this short video that shows the device in action. Enjoy!

Dell Case Study – Source for Sports

A plug-and-play win in digital signage

Source For Sports helps stores across Canada deliver an easily deployed, customizable digital signage solution powered by ScreenScape and Dell Wyse Cloud Connect.

“Each one of our stores is independently owned by people that live, work and play in the local community,” says Paul La Vigne, the company’s director of marketing. “Every store is unique.” While that uniqueness is a strength for the company, it can also be a big challenge when it comes to deploying corporate marketing or sales initiatives across all 156 stores. “Our stores are not cookie-cutter layouts, so it can be difficult for us to drive marketing messages down to the local level,” La Vigne says.

The organization decided to address the issue a few years ago by introducing their store owners to a digital sign solution from ScreenScape Networks, a company that provides an online service for delivering marketing content to in-store screens. But adoption was neither rapid nor widespread, because the solution required each Source For Sports owner to purchase, set up and manage a television connected to a computer. “The cost was part of it,” says La Vigne. “It was challenging for the stores to purchase a stand-alone computer and a TV, and then hook it all up. And as far as management was concerned, it was overwhelming for a small local store. Our store owners are retailers, not technical specialists.”

Company searches for an easy-to deploy solution

Plug-and-play device transforms in-store displays Source For Sports re engaged with ScreenScape after learning about Wyse Cloud Connect, and a new collaboration between ScreenScape and Dell to optimize the device for digital signage applications. Wyse Cloud Connect is a pocket-size device that plugs into the back of any television or display screen with an HDMI port. The device essentially turns any TV into a digital sign with full HD-display capabilities, and it can be updated, managed and monitored over the internet via ScreenScape software, through

“We looked at a few other solutions, but they weren’t as cost-effective and not nearly as easy to use as Wyse Cloud Connect,” says La Vigne. “And the fact that a large, well-respected brand like Dell was part of this made our decision that much easier.”

With the Wyse Cloud Connect device, Source For Sports store managers can easily transform smart TVs into digital signs in their stores, providing streaming content such as information about sales on sports equipment and local community events. Currently, 50 Source For Sports stores are using the solution, with the remaining stores slated to have the devices in the near future.
