Minicom Completes Landmark Digital Signage Installation

Player-to-screen distribution system to lower yearly operating expenses by $100,000

Minicom Advanced Systems, a global leader in multimedia distribution systems for digital signage, announced today that its DS Vision 3000 has been installed at a number of Landmark Theatres across the United States. The DS Vision 3000 delivers rich multimedia content from the player to distant screens while maintaining perfect image and sound quality.


The solution, combined with the application power of the Reflect Systems product, will lower yearly operating expenses for the Landmark digital signage network by $100,000. "I could not be more pleased with the Minicom product and have begun the process of retrofitting our entire network with the Minicom solution," Jason Hudak, Vice President of Technology for Landmark Theatres said. "I expect that cost savings number to climb as we expand our network," he added.

Landmark Theatres is the largest art house movie theater chain in the United States. They currently have 58 theatres in 23 markets. A number of locations have a digital signage network with high -definition content delivered to the screens located throughout. Their previous distribution system resulted in inconsistent video output to the screens.

"When installed in Landmark's upscale Harbor East development in Baltimore, the DS Vision 3000 had a 100% success rate right out of the box," said Dave Haar, Vice President of Minicom's Digital Signage Division. "The VGA solution requires half the physical cabling of the DVI/HDMI solution Landmark was using and allows it to utilize 35% fewer servers to power its displays. The Minicom solution requires significantly less electricity and cabling, resulting in dramatically lower infrastructure requirements and costs," Haar added.
