Complete Digital Signage Package, Including 40-inch LCD Display, Provides Customizable, Cost-Effective, All-in-One Business Solution
NEC Display Solutions of America, a leading stand-alone provider of commercial and residential LCD, plasma, and projector displays, announced today an easy way for companies to install digital signage with custom content in their lobbies.

The NEC Lobby Signage Solution has all of the components needed to create an effective communications tool, including the high-performance 40-inch NEC AccuSync PV40 display, mounting hardware, PC hardware, content management software, and power suppression.

The bundled solution can be seen at the 2008 Digital Signage Expo (NEC Display Booth No. 113) on February 27-28 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nev.

This all-in-one package is designed to provide a cost-effective, turnkey solution that is highly flexible and easily editable.  The pre-configured solution is ideal for stand-alone, one-off applications versus the traditional network-driven offerings.

"The fact that this new Lobby Signage Solution provides the flexibility for virtually any business environment makes it extremely easy for those companies currently lacking digital signage," said Jeff Blankensop, Director of Business Development for NEC Display Solutions.  "Even non-technical users have the ability to tailor rich media content with a combination of text, graphics, flash animation, movies and sound to a variety of applications, bringing any lobby to life."

The small- to-medium-sized businesses, corporate and hospitality markets will benefit from the bundle's content design voucher provided by EscapeWire Solutions.  The voucher can be redeemed upon purchase and used for the development of custom templates utilizing a company's logos, images and more.  The system is ideal for employee messaging, VIP welcoming, way-finding, event listing, trade shows, community messaging, safety awareness, menu boards, and event messaging.

NEC is known for its comprehensive solutions approach to digital signage, with design, financing, integration, deployment, and technology support resources.  The new Lobby Signage Solution leverages all of those resources to help companies achieve their visions for engaging and informative lobby environments, which project an image of technology and business alignment.

The 2007 World Digital Signage Markets Report from Frost & Sullivan states, "NEC was the leader in the world digital signage display market 2006 with 23.1 percent market share (the latest year for which data are available). The company has built on its wide range of product offerings in both the LCD and plasma displays"
