United Neon’s new digital billboard, powered by Signbox and Avolution, transforms Manila traffic display
By SITeam on May 23, 2012
United Neon, a leading advertising firm specializing in outdoor digital signage in the Philippines, engaged the Philippine’s best known digital signage experts, Avolution Inc, to design their latest LED digital billboard, so as to better monitor and schedule advertising content.
The impressive eye-catching 5 metre high billboard sits at Edsa Shaw, a popular crossing right outside Shangri-La Hotel In Manila, and is powered by Infobox, an all-in-one digital signage solution by Signbox Microsystems.
United Neon wanted to take digital OOH media to a whole new level. United Neon already used the LED digital billboard in Edsa Shaw for advertisements that could be scheduled on a daily, weekly and monthly basis. However, United Neon were facing difficulties monitoring the advertising material that was being displayed on the LED digital billboard.
United Neon decided to adopt the latest digital signage software technology and chose Signbox Microsystems’ certified partner Avolution Inc. to supply the digital signage system, Infobox. Apart from monitoring and scheduling advertising content better, it also enhanced the capabilities of United Neon to customize the design of the advertising content being played.
“United Neon were quite impressed with our good quality display and the ease with which they can upload content to LED billboards, which might otherwise be difficult to access. The project is a good marketing tool for us as potential clients are immediately able to see real live examples of our work,” says Lea Bermudez, VP Sales and Marketing at Avolution Inc.
The solution facilitated a significant tie-up with Metro Manila Development Authority, the resident traffic control authority in Manila, since this LED billboard is a highly effective means of communication, especially for urgent traffic information. This also spurred on a series of partnerships between Avolution and other LED billboards to display real-time content.
Stuart Lakin, Director at Signbox said, “Avolution have been strong partners of Signbox for many years, and have a fantastic track record of delivering high quality digital signage deployments to customers across the country. This is another example of Avolution’s professionalism and we are delighted to continue our work with them.”
