IMS Audio Visual Receives a DIGI Award From the Digital Signage Group

IMS takes a unique approach by using digital signage for corporate branding

CHARLOTTE, NC - Feb. 12 - Congratulations to IMS Audio Visual, Inc. of Aston, PA who announced on Feb. 5th that that they had been awarded the 2008 DIGI Award for Excellence in Creativity from The Digital Signage Group. This recognition is for the Digital Signage Design and Integration of a custom system at Plymouth Meeting, PA -based Health Advocate, Inc.

One of the highlights to the IMS project was the "Welcome Wall" that greets visitors in main lobby. The Welcome Wall consists of a 50" 1080P HD display and an ultra -large a 130' 16:9 Blue Ocean® Rear Projection Screen with suspension kit for a frameless 'free floating' effect to wow visitors as they enter the Lobby Exhibit Area. They decided on thin 9mm screen thickness option for a lighter weight solution that would perfectly fit with their application. The screen is driven by a Sanyo PLV -WF10™ LCD projector and both displays in the Exhibit Area show automated content; each with a networked AGNPRO miniBox™ HMP HD media player. The entire display system is controlled via an AMX NI -3100 and Modero 8.5" wireless touch panel, programmed with customized matrix switching.

The Digital Signage Group will be announcing the winners of the fourth annual DIGI Awards during the Digital Signage Expo in Las Vegas, Feb 27 -28th. IMS will be participating in a special Digital Signage panel discussion held at the Expo.
