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.

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

Most people haven’t heard the word, “gamification,” even though they probably, and perhaps unwittingly, participate in it every day. Gamification is “the process of adding games or game-like elements to something (as a task) so as to encourage participation.” Further, gamification is about bringing game mechanics – rules, constructs, processes, and methods – into the real world in an effort to engage people. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robert Endo, owner and engagement manager of Intrepid D...

Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
