Wayfinding applications rely on touchscreens and interactive maps to help orient visitors as they make their way to their destination. In most cases, interactive maps are created using HTML5. When someone points to a location using the on-screen map, a video or an animation pops-up to provide directions.
The QL platform supports HTML5 natively so it’s easy to manage and deploy your existing content. QL Player can also display an attractor loop with a mix of content when there is no one using the screen.
Digital signage screens positioned at the entrance of exhibition venues are managed from a central system. Building managers take charge of screens located in hallways and conference rooms, while food court staff members manage their own programming. Everyone works from the same software platform with access rights managed by a designated administrator.
Staff working in different areas use QL to collaborate together. They create content and monitor their media player devices to ensure everything is running smoothly.
QL Content Manager users are assigned a profile that is consistent with their responsibilities. IT maintenance workers can monitor and service digital signage devices, while the marketing team creates and manages the content. QL Content Manager features its own content approval system. A designated staff member gets to review content published by other employees before it is shown on screen.
Convention centers and exhibition halls are large organizations with many departments who must work together on tight deadlines. QL Content Manager is very easy to learn and a joy to use. The software’s user interface includes several collaborative features that help people be more productive.
- An integrated content approval system.
- Real-time player monitoring with automated email alerts.
- User roles and custom domains. Control staff access to specific features and screens.
Exhibition hall food courts use digital menu boards to advertise and display their products. QL features a data feed management tool that lets restaurant staff manage their own content with ease. On-site staff can also use QL Mobile to edit product names, descriptions and product images using their smartphone or tablet.
QL-powered digital signage displays show meetings currently in progress, and any upcoming meetings at conference room entrances. For example, QL can interface directly with Microsoft 365 and Google Calendar. When rooms have been assigned their own calendars, staff members book the space using their software of choice. QL can retrieve this data and display it in real-time.
Strategically installed conference room digital signage displays list current and upcoming events to inform visitors. Screens are updated constantly with the most current information.
Digital signage screens in other areas can display a range of useful real-time information, including:
- Flight departure times from the nearest airport.
- Local news and weather forecasts.
- Alert messages in case of fire or other emergency.
For applications used to sell advertising space, Aquaji provides advertisers with proof of display with, for each display, how many people had the screen in their field of vision, how many looked at the advertisement, or simply a count of vehicles.
Exhibition centers measure their performance on the basis of numbers of visitors and exhibitors. Since the center operator’s business is to obtain value from space rented to exhibitors and from advertising space, Navori offers an analytics solution that uses Aquaji computer vision software to add value to the space.
Aquaji provides the exhibition centre with data such as building occupancy on any day of the week or time of day, and enables it to inform exhibitors of numbers of people passing through the corridors for the same show held the year before and measure the waiting time for restaurants and occupancy of rooms.
