America's Leading Watch Retailer Selects YCD Multimedia' s Digital Signage Platform to Create Unique Customer Experience

"Using sophisticated video displays is part of our effort to modernize the experience of watch purchasing,"

New York - December 13, 2012. YCD Multimedia, a global leader in providing smart digital media solutions to the retail business world, today announced that TOURNEAU, America's leading watch retailer, has selected YCD's C-nario Messenger digital signage platform as the engine behind a unique video display in its new concept store in South Coast Plaza, Costa Mesa, California. The integrator was Media Services Worldwide, a US provider of design, integration and installation services.


The video display comprises four screens in a row, displaying synchronized content of clips and images across the entire configuration. The unique video display is part of TOURNEAU's new store design, making the process of watch-shopping more inviting and interactive, departing from the traditional "behind the counter" client/sales relationship to a more personalized experience.

The new installation joins another implementation of C-nario Messenger at TOURNEAU's concept store on 510 Madison Avenue in New York City. This store includes YCD-based four video walls. TOURNEAU also plans to implement YCD's platform in its store on 57th Street in New York.

"Using sophisticated video displays is part of our effort to modernize the experience of watch purchasing," said Jason Filiano, IT Manager, TOURNEAU NY. "Our reputation is based on more than 100 years of high quality, excellent service and satisfied customers. Adopting new technologies for our stores is another milestone in providing the best customer experience."

"YCD is proud to be selected by TOURNEAU for its stores, indicating C-nario Messenger's ability to create ambiance and style," said Sam Losar, President of YCD USA. "The digital media at TOURNEAU shops attract customers and create unique customer experience, while combining infotainment with enhanced branding."
