Munich, July 6, 2022 – Munich-based value-added distributor Concept International has entered into a sales partnership with 99sensors GmbH and DSD Deutschland. As part of this partnership, the two sensor specialists will provide their software and sensor technology for the device management of digital signage networks – 99sensors for LED displays and DSD Deutschland for LED walls, among others. Concept International can now support system integrators in the hardware management of LED displays and walls from various manufacturers. With “Remo on”, Concept International already has a device management solution for Giada players in the pipeline. All three solutions are available now and can be experienced live on July 6 and 7 at the Digital Signage Summit Europe in Munich’s Hilton Hotel at the airport (booth 9).
The “DOOH-Boxx” from 99sensors reads technical data from digital signage displays via a COM port connection and generates alarms for the people in charge if desired, for example if panels fail, the temperature is too high or the display brightness is not right. Actions can be initiated automatically and remotely, such as controlling display brightness based on ambient brightness or reducing brightness when no passers-by are reported via a sensor. DSD Germany offers a similar competence for LED walls with “DisplayControl”, where DSD’s software reads the data from the LED panels. Here, too, the persons in charge can carry out control measures remotely.
Both device management solutions clearly summarize data in web-based dashboards and generate reports. System integrators and responsible persons at the customers’ end thus always have an overview of the status of their systems.
Visitors to the Digital Signage Summit Europe, which will take place at Munich Airport on July 6 and 7, 2022, will be able to see live demos of how the tools from 99sensors, DSD and Giada work at Concept Stand 9. All three solutions are available now as add-ons when purchasing hardware through Concept International. Prices and pricing models on request.
“Hardware-grade add-on for content software”
“With the sensor technologies from 99sensors and DSD Germany, we now have diagnostic and management functions for inhomogeneous digital signage networks from different manufacturers on offer. It does not matter from which manufacturer the LED wall or display or even the signage player originates: Our management solutions enable deep and fine-grained monitoring of the different components in a cluster. They complement the software of system integrators, which is primarily aimed at controlling and playing out content, with hardware-related features,” puts Mike Finckh, CEO of Concept International, in order.
“We are delighted to have gained Concept International, a leading hardware distributor in the digital signage sector,” explains Christoph Keßeler, Managing Director of 99sensors GmbH. And Tobias Liebe, Managing Director of DSD Germany, adds: “Concept will be an ideal partner for us in marketing our hardware management solution.”
