GPAC Enters the Domain of Digital Signage!

19 Nov 2018 General all,

You'll now find 'Digital Signage' in the foyer of the Geelong Performing Arts Centre. GPAC is currently in the midst of massive upgrades as part of Geelong's Cultural Precinct Redevelopment. To help bring the foyer into the Digital Age, MultiTeK Solutions supplied, programmed and installed new Digital Signage Kiosks for the main foyer.

This latest technology installation is a unique asset for the arts centre and will provide positive effects for both theatregoers and staff alike. The Digital Signage Kiosks are specially engineered to ensure efficiency and convenience. Questions relating to session times, ticket availability and show details can be answered directly from the kiosks, rather than having customers waiting in what can sometimes be long theatre queues. Not only does this help to improve staff productivity it helps to ease 'crowd flow' at peak times when space in the foyer becomes more restricted. GPAC will initially use the Kiosks to display information that patrons once found hanging on posters; this will ultimately help to lower the centre's paper wastage.

Beautiful graphics, colour schemes and videos can be displayed from the Digital Kiosks making them a lot more exciting and engaging than regular static signs. The touchscreens are interactive and user-friendly, patrons will find them easy to navigate as they provide clear visual communications.

As explained by Peerless-AV ..."This kiosk, powered by BrightSign®, delivers flawless Full HD 1080p60 single video decoding, HTML support, networked content playback, as well as an abundant set of features like interactivity via the GPIO port, remote snapshot, live text, media feeds and multi-zone. The kiosk’s sleek, stylish design offers the ruggedness needed for public use, and simple installation and maintenance."

This high quality, cutting-edge technology supplied by MultiTek Solutions will set new boundaries for the Geelong Performing Arts Centre. It's great to see places like Geelong's cultural precinct embracing customised, interactive and engaging technology solutions.
