In October 2007, the newly constructed Neue Messe Stuttgart opened its gates. In addition to modern architecture, the fair also offers a cutting-edge IT infrastructure. For this new high-tech fair, dimedis developed a digital visitor information and direction system. The system consists of more than 200 screens and terminals that can be found all over the fair. The terminals are used for many different functions like the search for exhibitors and products at self-service terminals, digital check-in and check-out of visitors at manned service counters or the electronic purchase of tickets and printing of badges to name just a few.
A part of the solutions put into place by dimedis also include the use our Digital Signage software, kompas:
The dynamic orientation system presents multimedia information, advertisements and event notes. It displays static and video imagery as well as dynamic contents from a database, helping visitors find their way around the site and keep up to date with what's happening on the fair right now. Content can be scheduled to appear at a certain point in time or for a certain amount of time and adjusted to the location of the display it is being shown on. External sources like the times of departure and arrival of public means of transportation are also included into the system, giving valuable information to visitors - at the right time and in the right place. The whole system can easily be controlled from anywhere through a web-based workstation.
Digital room signs display the room assignments for conference rooms and the likes. This happens through the use of a central database into which all booked times for any room are entered. In addition to the time, further information like the names of speakers, meeting topics or logos are also shown on the screen.
Entirely different applications, many requirements, one solution: The project Neue Messe Stuttgart impressively demonstrates the versatility and power of kompas.
