CAYIN Digital Signage Facilitate Meeting Management for New SABIC Academy in Riyadh

The new SABIC Academy in Riyadh utilizes CAYIN's digital signage solutions to convey timely information throughout 38 LCD screens in the Academy. This project was implemented by SMARTECH AV, CAYIN's premium partners in Saudi Arabia.

TAIPEI, TAIWAN, June 26, 2012 - The new SABIC Academy in Riyadh utilizes CAYIN's digital signage solutions to convey timely information throughout 38 LCD screens in the main entrance, meeting rooms, auditorium, and conference halls. Multiple state-of-the-art technologies were introduced to the new Academy to accomplish this smart building.


SABIC Academy is the new learning center of Saudi Basic Industries Corporation in Riyadh. The new academy has become the benchmark of education facilities in the Kingdom. CAYIN's digital signage solution is introduced in this project by SMARTECH AV, CAYIN's premium partners in Saudi Arabia, to replace old-fashioned bulletin boards and create a speedy digital information channel.

"This is the first learning center in Saudi Arabia to use this technology to manage all meeting rooms completely," said Mr.Yousef Abdul Hadi Projects Manager of SMARTECH AV Co. "We are honored to be selected as the main partner to supply all AV and Digital Signage with room schedule systems for the first smart learning academy in Saudi Arabia."

The new Academy contains 30 meeting rooms and hosts a wide variety of learning programs, including workshops, summits and training classes every day. Instead of using bulletin boards, SABIC deploys 17" LCD screens (Flush Mount) in the wall outside 30 meeting rooms, along with CAYIN's digital signage solutions. The screen clearly indicates the meeting topic, start time, and duration of the meeting. Therefore, enrolled trainees can locate the correct class and meeting room easily.

Each screen connects to one CAYIN SMP-WEB4 digital signage player and is managed centrally via CAYIN's meetingPost software. Equipped with a room booking system, meetingPost enables administrators to process online booking for meeting and banquet rooms.

Therefore, SABIC Academy can edit a meeting list for each meeting room in advance. For impromptu meetings or room changes, the administrator can also input meeting information remotely in the office without running back and forth in the building to change the post.

In addition to meeting rooms, SABIC Academy also installs three 51" LCD screens in the main entrance, two for the auditorium, and two for the multipurpose hall to increase the reach of the Academy's public announcements. With the help of CAYIN lobbyPost software, SABIC can select a template, enter data, and immediately show high quality video, tickers, web pages, pictures, weather information, and even live TV programs from the satellite.

SABIC Academy is an important education facility for the nation to develop industry leaders in the petrochemical industry. World-class leaders and courses, accompanied by world-class learning facilities successfully enhance the level of education and training and add a new dimension to the advancement of the Kingdom.
