Messe Düsseldorf is further expanding its existing digital-signage network by installing 35 digital door and room signs at its head office. These will replace and supplement analog notices for offices, meeting rooms, rooms reserved for industry associations, and journalists’ offices. The digital-signage software solution kompas from dimedis controls and networks the door signage screens. Twenty 7.5-inch e-paper displays as well as fifteen 10-inch LCD displays from IAdea are being employed. The absolute highlight: kompas integrates all common calendar tools in order to display the room allocation dynamically on the screens. In addition, the screens do not require a separate power supply: the 10-inch units with color displays are powered via a Power over Ethernet cable, and the e-paper units have a battery with a service life of up to five years. The screens display the appointments dynamically, the latest information is highlighted, and old appointments are hidden.
