Investec is an international specialist bank and asset manager that provides a diverse range of financial products and services to a niche client base in three principal markets - the United Kingdom, South Africa and Australia, in addition to certain other countries.
Investec in Dublin wanted to enhance its reception area and selected a 4K Video wall driven by a ONELAN 4K digital signage player to achieve this.
Playing a mixture of full 3840 pixels wide by 1440 pixel high bespoke animated content across all six screens to create full brand impact, the bespoke content includes live TV, live market data and promotional HD brand videos. With the ONELAN 4K player Investec was able to seamlessly switch from full wall content to a mixture of content types across multiple screens.
In order to implement the video wall, Emotion Media, a ONELAN Accredited Content Partner, worked with Digicom who provided the video hardware and carried out the installation.
Emotion Media created and manipulated all the content for this exciting project. It used a ONELAN 4K player with a HD capture port to stream live market data from a house pc. It was also able to display live Sky news in full HD quality using a YouTube link with a string of code to force full HD and auto play.
Emotion Media created bespoke animations of Investec's brand videos. Existing low resolution content was enhanced to create leading-edge versions with the correct resolution needed for the 4K video players.
Alternative layout options were also created to include live social media feeds and RSS news feeds while the promotional videos and market data were on display. Investec staff also has the ability to display welcome screen messages very easily and schedule them for special events and visitors.

ONELAN has developed new features for its Content Management System (CMS) to improve ease of administration particularly for enterprise customers.
CMS 2.0 incorporates role based access control which allows administrators to delegate access to certain elements of content creation, play listing and scheduling to non-administrative staff. All content changes are also recorded in a change log which can be audited to track what changes have been made, by whom and when.
Backups can now be automated and can be directed to a network location, further streamlining internal processes in larger businesses.
The new CMS version also supports adding PDFs to content play lists and a range of User Interface (UI) improvements.
