Electrosonic has installed a 33 screen signage network at the National Exhibition Centre (NEC).

The signage and wayfinding network, part of the NECs 490m redevelopment, uses 30x 46in LCD screens and three 61in plasmas. It will be used to give detailed information about events taking place in each hall and for giving information about current and forthcoming events.

The displays are arranged in clusters. Two 4 x 2 arrays and one 8 x 1 array are mounted on curved walls, and two 3 x 1 arrays are mounted on overhead girders above stairways. These all use NEC LCD4610 displays. In a separate multi-purpose open area a 3 x1 array of NEC 61XM4 plasma displays is installed, and these displays can be set to run other content, including off-air television, when not needed for signage.

The system uses players from DVS as image sources, which are either mounted behind the LCD panels or racks in spaces close to the displays.

A combination of Scala InfoChannel Player 3 and Beaver Groups Global Media Manager is used for scheduling the system, managing the media and playing out content.

The complete system is on the National Exhibition Centres IT network. A server is installed in NEC House (which is on the NEC site) which allows staff to load new content and schedules remotely.
