Office signage shows real-time data

A new corporate digital signage network for Carisbrooke Shipping provides staff with real-time data on fuel consumption by the company’s more than 50 vessels.

Three offices in Britain, Germany and the Netherlands have received Samsung 48-inch displays which show content served by the cloud-based Embed Signage system.

Eclipse Digital Media devised the network, which displays a range of internal communications as well as the fuel updates and other content based on external Web data services.

“We’ve been looking for a way to improve information flow within our company as well as providing some introductory info for our visitor. Digital signage seemed like a perfect fit.

“Our solution needed to be flexible and easy to manage – preferably cloud-based, allowing centralised management of devices located in different geographical locations,” said Daniel Lewandowski, IT manager for Carisbrooke, which is based on the Isle of Wight off the southern English coast.
