Royal Mail welcomes with Optoma

Royal Mail has implemented a digital signage solution in its Mail Media Centre (MMC) in London. The company opted for an Optoma D5000 advanced media player to integrate into its existing installation.

The company wanted to modernise communications in the reception and the client resource area. The MMC already had two 50” plasma screens installed that were being driven by either the TV or DVD player but the organisation wanted to utilise the screens to their full potential.

“We looked for a solution that could be easily and instantly updated or managed without any real fuss,” said Ray Sappal, technical director of Visual Systems Sales, the installation company. “[It took] one day to install and test, [and was] low cost on cabling.”

MMC had to have a system that was easy to use and carried no monthly subscription charge or maintenance costs. Additional requirements included a system that they could change instantly with the ability to have pictures or video with text.

Sappal continued: “[MMC] can change templates instantly and update information quickly.”

Looking to the future, MMC’s new communications system can be added to with the introduction of more screens whenever necessary.
