YCD Multimedia Helps New York Historical Society Museum Visitors Make the Most of Their Visit

New York, NY – September 4, 2012. YCD Multimedia, a global leader in providing smart digital media solutions, today announced that the company’s Cnario Messenger digital signage platform has been implemented as the software behind multimedia displays at the newly renovated New-York Historical Society Museum. The museum presents the rich history of New York and the United States, including paintings, sculptures, documents, furniture and household accessories, and other artifacts.

YCD's Cnario Messenger manages various video walls across the museum, displaying useful information about the museum’s offerings and Historical Society activities, such as information about exhibits and artists, prices, wayfinding, etc. The unique video walls, arranged in various shapes, such as totems and rectangulars, are located at various key points such as the admission counter, near elevators and the theater entrance, and other places. The video walls serve as a very useful information tool for visitors, and are fully integrated in the renovated museum's architectural concept.

The content was designed by Unified Field, a provider of interactive media design and development services.

"The unique shapes and implementation of the video walls reflect the innovative redesign of the museum, adding modern high-tech elements to traditional displays," said Sam Losar, President of YCD USA. "The visitor-oriented concept of the newly renovated museum uses digital signage as a key communication tool, making a museum visit the best experience possible, while underscoring the museum's support for innovation."

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. Cnario Messenger is characterized by its superb multi-display playback capabilities, as well as its advanced management, monitoring and control tools. In addition, the system is based on open architecture, making it easy to customize and adapt to different needs. The system’s innovative content creation tools easily help to create displays and cut costs.
