There are many options for displays as different technologies, sizes, styles suit different applications. We have experiences to share which can help you decide on the best products for all indoor and outdoor signage, information kiosks and help points.

Digital Signage is increasing its appeal for existing users and finding new markets in different sectors and applications. As a consequence, solutions are developing and new products and technologies are evolving. We can talk you through the pros and cons of System on Chip (SOC), dedicated signage players, 4k and how you might combine all three!

Control Rooms

Operations centres, Emergency Operation Centres, Media Rooms, Silver Command Centres, Airport Fire Centres, Multi-Agency Control Centres (MACC) – all types of Control Rooms which need to be able to monitor key live data. Video walls are a good solution as they can show CCTV, Airport Radar, Ground Radar, Flight Information and other essential data simultaneously and allow these applications to be expanded for a closer look. Touch tables are also used for those times requiring greater interactivity between key personnel.

We have a wealth of experience from the airport industry where we have upgraded facilities as well as installed completely new facilities.

Interactive Wayfinding Solutions

Digital solutions for wayfinding have increased hugely over the past few years with touch screens being available in larger sizes and costs reducing as the usage grows. SPC Group offer a range of standard solutions incorporating a touch screen into a totem or kiosk but also offer bespoke solutions. These can be powder coat finished to blend in with a clients branding, have graphics applied and the controlling software can be developed to meet a clients exact needs.

As well as being used to show maps for customers wayfinding these solutions can provide additional information. This could be in the ability to scan a boarding card with the system linked to an Airports FID data, show real time passenger information such as train or bus timetables, give updates on weather, traffic and news, and to generate revenues through advertising. 

Additions such as cameras for face to face communication or merely proximity sensing can be included as can the ability to transfer information to a mobile device. Menus for food outlets can be displayed with links to a restaurants data hub and QR codes displayed for additional retail information sent to a personal device.

SPC Group have installed many wayfinding units and can arrange for potential customers to view and use these solutions as a demonstration of what can be achieved. Monitoring of devices can be part of an ongoing contract using, for example, google analytics to monitor the traffic on a site thereby gaining an understanding of the usage and effectiveness of the system.

Meeting and Conference Rooms

From simple huddle areas to fully-equipped boardrooms, we all understand the value of meetings with colleagues, suppliers and customers. The ability to connect with a remote site, both aurally and visually, is just the start; more complex requirements include connecting to multiple sites, to mobile clients, data sharing and collaboration, real time messaging, unified communications.

There are options on how to operate video conferencing. The latest cloud-based services offer considerable benefits to smaller companies and those just starting to get into video as they have a lower up-front cost, offer scalability and do not require much in-house technical support. Operating video conferencing over your network requires greater initial outlay and competent in-house technical support. It provides greater control and security but less flexibility than cloud-based options. Adding a control system is a popular choice as these allow the operation of all technical devices in the room through one user interface. These save time and inconvenience, just one system to learn rather than many, they can be Wifi, Bluetooth, wireless or wired. We are here to help de-mystify the high tech talk and buzz words surround meeting room technology so that you understand what’s available and can decide what you really need. If possible, we will arrange product demonstrations at your site. SPC Group provide training for users of the system as part of our handover on project completion.
