Spain's Deusto University Selects Cnario's Platform for New Digital Signage Network
Tel Aviv, Israel – March 14, 2011. Cnario, a global provider of digital signage software solutions, today announced that the University of Deusto, one of Spain's most prestigious universities, has selected the company’s digital signage platform, Cnario Messenger, for the university’s new digital signage networks at the Bilbao and San Sebastian campuses.
The first phase of the project, in Bilbao, has already been completed. Thirteen Samsung screens were installed campus-wide, displaying information about various events on campus, as well as information about current weather, sports and general news, emergency alerts and public safety information. The second phase is planned to begin in the near future, and it will include expansion of the digital signage network to the university’s campus in San Sebastian.
Comunitac, a Spanish provider of innovative communication products and services, is the prime contractor. The project designer and integrator is IKUSI, a global provider of communications and electronic solutions and services, and a Cnario strategic partner. AsomaTV, a Spanish provider of digital signage services, helped IKUSI with content creation. Media players were provided by AOpen, a leading small form factor (SFF) computer system manufacturer and a digital signage solution provider, and a Cnario strategic partner.
Cnario Messenger is a complete digital signage display, distribution and management software platform that provides better-than-broadcast quality playback in any shape, size and resolution. The University of Deusto project also includes Cnario’s new Media Manager, an easy-to-use Web tool that allows content uploading, management and approval via the Web. It shortens time to market, and makes the entire workflow very efficient. It also includes an automatic distribution to the selected channel/s once approved. Non-approved content is deferred until approval. Another tool used in this project is Cnario’s Playlist, which provides automated, rule-based scheduling.
“Digital signage can instantly deliver information across the campus and capture the attention of students, faculty and visitors,” said Miriam Portell, Head of Media, University of Deusto. “Digital signage is an extremely valuable and efficient communication channel, and we selected solutions from the best software and hardware vendors, Cnario and Samsung.”
“Education is one of our major strategic target markets, and we are pleased that the University of Deusto decided to use our solutions as the software infrastructure for its digital signage network,” said Tamir Ginat, Cnario’s CEO. “An increasing number of higher education institutions are becoming aware of the great benefits of digital signage, and we are well positioned to meet this growing demand.”
