Wireless Ronin Breaks Down Barriers to Digital Signage With Samsung's New Smart Signage Displays

MINNEAPOLIS, MN -- (Marketwire) -- 02/28/13 -- Wireless Ronin Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: RNIN), a leading digital marketing technologies company, has aligned with Samsung Electronics America, the number one worldwide provider of commercial LCD displays, to offer a breakthrough in digital signage solutions for retail, QSRs or any business looking to transform how they engage their customers and increase sales without the cost, complication and limitations of traditional digital signage.

The revolutionary digital marketing solution combines the fourth generation of Wireless Ronin's RoninCast® software with Samsung's new Samsung Smart Signage Platform displays, both of which debuted this week at the Digital Signage Expo (DSE) in Las Vegas.

Samsung's Smart Signage displays include a built-in CPU that powers an Internet connection and a new open-source media player, allowing for cloud-based video playback and interactive content delivered by RoninCast software, without needing a separate device. Replacing external media player devices and monitors today with integrated ultra-flat and lightweight, large-format smart displays ensures cleaner and simpler installation and operational processes that can save both time and money.

When powered by RoninCast 4.0 software, Samsung displays can present vivid, engaging and dynamic content, including real-time data updates, custom industry content, and food service content like menus and coupons. RoninCast software facilitates easy promotion and limited time offer implementation, as well as the integration of key brand messaging, local community news and social media feeds. The integrated platform gives businesses a true plug-and-play solution, from content creation and installation, to content validation, software upgrades and network monitoring.

"We're excited to partner with Samsung as one of the earliest adopters of their Smart Signage Platform," said Scott Koller, president and CEO of Wireless Ronin. "Despite the clear and compelling benefits digital marketing can deliver, deploying digital signage, especially across multiple locations, can seem like a daunting and expensive project. RoninCast 4.0 software, combined with Samsung's new Smart Signage Platform, dramatically simplifies deployment and ongoing management, breaking down these barriers and opening the field to a much larger universe of potential users."

"Samsung's open-source digital signage software ties in perfectly with the new HTML5 capabilities of RoninCast 4.0 software, providing clear advantages for the end user by lowering costs, simplifying installation, improving uptime, and ultimately increasing the ROI for our customers," continued Koller. "An embedded device with video playback and browser capabilities is something WRT has been asking of the display manufacturers for a long time, and Samsung is one of the first to respond with their new Smart Signage Platform. We plan to leverage its capabilities with our new RoninCast 4.0 software release."

Summary of Benefits from Combined Offering:

  • Rather than requiring a separate display and player, the single Samsung Smart Signage Platform solution allows for more efficient and less costly installation and ongoing support.

  • Samsung's Smart Signage Platform interface enables RoninCast 4.0 software to gather information from the displays for better monitoring and support, including remote management of the player and displays, like controlling power, color, and other adjustments.

  • Samsung's Smart Signage Platform eliminates player expense and maintenance issues, reduces cabling and complexity, and allows cleaner installations, featuring extremely thin displays mounted virtually flush with walls.

  • The combined platform takes advantage of features introduced in RoninCast 4.0 software, including omni-channel capabilities using HTML5 to push content to multiple channels and devices.

The basic integration architecture, as defined by ESBs, hasn’t changed for more than a decade. Most cloud integration providers still rely on an ESB architecture and their proprietary connectors. As a result, enterprise integration projects suffer from constraints of availability and reliability of these connectors that are not re-usable across other integration vendors. However, the rapid adoption of APIs and almost ubiquitous availability of APIs amongst most SaaS and Cloud applications are rapidly redefining traditional integration approaches and their reliance on proprietary connectors. ...
