ONELAN is delighted to have been shortlisted for an AV Award in the Corporate Project of the Year category with its installation at Autotrader.
At its new office in Manchester, Autotrader wanted to communicate brand awareness and company values to all employees, provide real time monitoring to its squads across Product and Technology, and provide access to KPI and business data to different departments. It also wanted to communicate promotional messaging to visitors (Customers & Suppliers) and enhance productivity, process workflow and employee engagement.
Digital signage was selected as the most suitable technology for its requirements. ONELAN's solution was chosen by Autotrader for its simplicity of use, flexibility with signage and touch in a single platform, and the access to managed services for creative and technical expertise of the platform in the shape of onemedia. Viewpoint was the integrator responsible for the installation.

ONELAN has opened the new demonstration suite at its headquarters in Henley-on-Thames to showcase its full range of digital signage players and vertical market applications, including the NEW Reserva room booking system. ONELAN's 4K expertise and experience is evident with an NEC 2×2 video wall with 4K loop-through, along with a 4K windmill configuration video wall which is driven by a combination of ONELAN / Datapath technologies.
The demonstration area is comprised of collaborative solutions with trusted partners, such as: Datapath, onemedia, NEC, LG, Samsung, Jansen, Peerless, and Realisation.
The University of Greenwich has 3 campuses in south-east London and north Kent. These are located at Greenwich in the grounds of the Old Royal Naval College, in Avery Hill and Medway.
The University wanted a way to show information to staff and visitors across all three campuses to give staff & students a much better idea of what is going on elsewhere on other campuses and so feel much more involved.
Historically communications for staff and students have taken the form of traditional printed posters and leaflets. The Service Development & Communications team realised that digital signage would fulfil the University's requirements for better communications, and having selected ONELAN, are testing it and gradually rolling it out across the University.
The Service Development & Communications team currently manages the digital signage content, but as the system evolves, this will be delegated to other individuals across the three campuses.
The University has a ONELAN Content Management System (CMS) and a ONELAN 4K player driving a 3 × 2 video wall in the main reception at Greenwich. Different zones display bus and train updates, students' work and event information. An RSS feed at the bottom shows BBC news.
There are also two other screens within the building showing department specific information, and that will in future be able to show data extracted from the University's website.
ONELAN operates globally and is known for its high reliability 24/7 Linux players. The company is delighted to be ranking within the top 10 of DailyDOOH's top 25 list, and for DailyDOOH's recognition of its increasing success in the retail sector.
DailyDOOH's annual listing is intended to provide an objective analysis of different companies providing a breakdown by vertical sector of the key players. In short it is designed to act as a starting point for businesses looking to generate an RFP.
For over 10 years ONELAN has pioneered reliability, high quality playback, security and remote management with its range of Linux based signage players. ONELAN's CMS-Server and Publisher ensure there is a solution, from a small foyer network with a single administrator, through to Enterprise 24/7 networks with 1000s of players and multiple concurrent users. It is currently developing its commercial offering for the Samsung Smart Signage Platform, LG's webOS-based Smart Signage display range and Google Chrome OS. ONELAN is also planning to bring its room booking system Reserva to these platforms later this year.

This range of compact and attractive digital meeting room signs clearly display the availability of the room and a summary of future bookings. Reserva is dynamically linked to your calendaring system (e.g. Microsoft Exchange) to ensure meetings displayed on screen are always up-to-date.
The Reserva Room Signage range prevents double bookings and eliminates the distraction, confusion and frustration caused when two meetings are scheduled in the same room.
Reserva includes the following features:
• Can be customised with customer logo
• Can be used to show other Digital Signage content
• Fully interactive touch screen (optional)
• Available in a range of screen sizes
• Auto rotate for portrait or landscape installation
Reserva can proactively manage 'no shows' to help maximise workspace utilisation. Interactive Reserva room signage is also available with the following functionality from the room sign: book a meeting, extend or shorten a meeting, and require attendees to confirm their attendance in order to keep their room booking.

With multiple car showrooms and sites in Dundee and St Andrews, Barnetts Motor Group wanted the best solution for delivering internal and showroom external marketing messages and information to create customer excitement and staff awareness electronically.
Barnetts Motor Group had three main objectives:
1. To source and deploy a delivery mechanism to best communicate energy and excitement to customer facing areas such as showrooms and coffee areas centrally controlled by Marketing.
2. Utilising the same mechanism, to deploy a solution to communicate to staff in rest areas, canteen's etc where company objectives, statistics, priorities and the latest company marketing initiatives can be communicated.
3. To achieve the above with one touch point operator without the need for repeating or rework but also with the capability for local messaging to be utilised.
The flexibility, immediacy and exciting video content capable of being deployed through digital signage made this a natural choice for a dealership at the cutting edge of technology and process control. A four screen showroom 'horizon' deployment will be followed by other showroom applications with around 20 screens planned.
ONELAN was chosen as the best in class for flexibility, ease of use and quality of delivery.
According to Barnetts Motor Group, the system is not the cheapest but you get what you pay for. It is very easy to use, reliable and fit for purpose. 'It's early days for us but so far staff and customers appear to like the system. It projects a modern, hi-tec image of our business. Customers have said "it's cool".'
"The speed and quality with which Vision Sound and Light installed and configured the system for us was impressive. We gave them 2 weeks from initial pricing to completing the job and it was done on time and to exceptionally high quality. The training we received meant we could use the system properly from day 1. We would highly recommend them for AV installations."
