Re-launched digital wayfinding at the dimedis stand

As another highlight dimedis presents a world premiere: the latest version of the guide kompas wayfinding on a stele shines for the first time completely in HTML5 and in a revised design. The EuroShop visitor can try out the guidance solution for a shopping centre. kompas wayfinding is an intuitive and intelligent guidance system. The interaction with the guidance takes place via a touch screen. The software documents all user actions and searches anonymously, making it a permanent survey tool.

Each kompas wayfinding terminal dynamically calculates the route from the current location to the destination found. This means that a kompas wayfinding system shows your customers the right way at all locations. kompas wayfinding is a learning system: If you search for terms that are not yet stored in the kompas wayfinding database, these terms are displayed on an administrator interface. In no time at all, these terms can be assigned to different shops and locations.

kompas Door Signage

With kompas Door Signage, simple e-paper labels are transformed into digital-signage door signs for clear depiction of appointments and room occupation. Using a state-of-the-art HTML5 template architecture, there are no technological limits to how your information is graphically presented on the e-paper labels. In addition, corresponding interfaces ensure that your information is up to date at all times.

The e-paper labels used are battery-powered and stand out due to the high-contrast image, whereby current is only consumed when the displayed content changes. This results in a battery life of up to 5 years! As the e-paper labels are updated via WLAN, no cables are required. This makes them an ideal solution for use as flexible digital door signs. They are thus also ideal when retrofitting existing buildings! Needless to say, kompas Door Signage also provides you with a connection to your calendar tool (e.g. Exchange and CalDAV).

kompas Door Signage supports any number of e-paper labels in one network and integrates these transparently into your digital-signage network. Mixed operation of conventional kompas players and e-paper labels is also no problem.

All benefits at a glance
  • Concise and constantly up-to-date display of appointments and room occupation
  • Connection to your calendar tool (e.g. Exchange and CalDAV)
  • No cables required during assembly
  • Battery life of up to 5 years
Ideal when retrofitting existing buildings

kompas Satellite

With kompas Satellite, digital-signage screens no longer require a built-in player to play and display booked content. Instead, this is simply streamed in real time via the connected network. Hence, it does not matter which end device is used to display the content, allowing kompas Satellite to run on screens and tablets from all manufacturers. The hub PC retrieves the contents from the kompas server, and then all that is required is a network connection to the POS in order to display the contents on the tablets and screens via a browser – this also functions without an external Internet connection. Digital signage was never this straightforward and cheap!

In kompas Satellite the player function is completely integrated into the browser in the form of a portable JavaScript application responsible for displaying the contents. The most important feature here is that the contents – such as pictures, videos or HTML content – is not saved and played locally as is usually the case, but rather streamed live via a so-called hub. 
kompas Satellite concentrates exclusively on playing content and, for this reason, is not equipped with more complex features. It is thus a very good and cost-effective option for displaying contents quickly and easily, especially for the POS. Simply configure the end device’s browser on the hub, book content, and the job is done! The kompas user can display the status indicator of the screens and a spot protocol at any time via the connected monitoring system.

All benefits at a glance
  • Display of contents without a built-in player
  • Screens, tablets, digital door signs and much more besides – every type of hardware can be used
  • Ideal solution for simple and cost-effective use at the POS

kompas RFID

To be seen for the first time at our stand: the integration of RFID at the POS. kompas plays out the content as soon as the customer takes the product off the shelf or lifts it up. The screen can then display further information or start a video to whet the appetite for the product. An ideal tool for staging products at the POS and supporting sales. With the help of Peakmedia, we have already successfully supported a sports shop in Austria with this technology.

EuroShop 2020: dimedis presents digital and innovative smart retail solutions

Digital signage in the retail sector with kompas – kompas strengthens the shop-customer communication – Big data and digital signage – Control intelligent marketing campaigns with kompas – Use of RFID at the POS – kompas Satellite: door signage and low-price entry-level solution for the POS

Cologne, 02 January 2020 – At the world’s leading trade fair for the retail sector, EuroShop in the German city Düsseldorf, dimedis will be demonstrating the use of digital displays and wayfinding systems for retailers as well as presenting important innovations and trends in the field of smart retail. From February 16–21, 2020 dimedis will be presenting the multi award-winning digital-signage software kompas as well as the completely revamped wayfinding software kompas wayfinding on its own booth (Hall 1, Booth C96).

Visitors to EuroShop will learn on the spot how kompas digital signage helps them strengthen the communication with the customer. Another central issue: an intelligent digital-signage strategy on the basis of big-data analyses. This enables kompas to control targeted digital-signage campaigns through automated algorithms in order to actively promote products and thus efficiently manage inventory thanks to smart stocking. At the trade fair, dimedis will be demonstrating on the basis of concrete examples how the number of cancelled sales are reduced using digital-signage applications and how the advantages of online retailing will also be adopted in the brick-and-mortar retail sector. Special functions that will be presented at EuroShop comprise interactive applications such as a new wayfinding system for shopping malls, digital signage and RFID, and the seamless and simple integration of all screens and digital door signs into digital signage. With kompas Satellite, digital-signage screens no longer require a built-in player to play and display booked content. This solution is perfect for the POS, offering a low-price option for simple applications. kompas Door Signage represents an all-in-one-solution for meeting rooms and door signs and is part of dimedis GmbH’s smart building strategy.

Patrick Schröder, Head of Digital Signage at dimedis, talks about the exhibition at EuroShop: “EuroShop is the world's leading trade fair for the retail sector. With kompas, we want to demonstrate that, besides information and inspiration, today’s digital signage must offer more, namely a clear-cut increase in added value. With smart stocking, for example, goods can be promoted actively and by means of automation using kompas. This helps the retailers effectively and increases their profits. With kompas, we provide solutions for the entire customer journey. From advertising and emotional videos and photos to wayfinding to project configuration to the integration of smartphones and RFID. We will be presenting these concrete applications at EuroShop.”
Visitors to EuroShop will be able to test the latest version of the award-winning software themselves and, in particular, get to know the features that are relevant to the POS.

kompas RFID
On display for the first time at our booth: the integration of RFID at the POS. kompas starts playing the content the moment the customer takes the product off the shelf. The screen can then display additional information or start a video in order to increase the customer’s desire to own the product. An ideal tool with which to display products in a spectacular fashion at the POS and to support sales. With our Austria-based partner Peakmedia, we have already been able to successfully support a specialist sport shop in Austria with this technology.

kompas feature: "kompas Satellite”
With kompas Satellite, digital-signage screens no longer require a built-in player to play and depict booked content; instead, this is streamed in real time via the connected network. This enables various monitors in the network to be controlled, irrespective of their format. This solution is perfect for the POS, offering a low-price option for simple applications.
The most important feature here is that the player does not save the content locally but rather that kompas streams content such as pictures, videos or HTML content from a so-called hub live to the corresponding end device.

Messe Dortmund expands its infrastructure with innovative multi-function columns and relies on kompas digital signage in the process

 Messe Dortmund is further expanding its existing digital-signage network by installing 18 innovative multi-function columns, so-called “InfoS” throughout the exhibition grounds. These information columns with a height up to 3.5 meters combine analog (constantly visible) with digital (temporary and alternating between visible and invisible) information for a targeted trade fair visit. The 18 information columns are controlled by the digital-signage software solution kompas from dimedis. The absolute highlight: screens are located on two opposite faces of the information columns, which, besides easily understandable visual route guidance, also display digital content. This includes up-to-the-minute information about the ongoing trade fair program, advertising from participating exhibitors, image campaigns with photos and videos as well as warnings and evacuation instructions that can be displayed at short notice in the event of unforeseen occurrences.

With the exception of the power supply cables, the columns are completely wireless and operate via the trade fair’s in-house WLAN network. Every content update is sent to the columns via WLAN and saved locally in each column’s own fail-safe industrial mini PC, a slot-in computer integrated into the display to ensure that the most recently transferred content is still stored locally in the event of a network failure.

65-inch screens from Philips in portrait format are used. The information columns have a lockable roller system and can be pushed to a new location by a single person if required. The upper section of the information column with an LED backlight functions as an eye-catcher and directs the trade fair visitors to the respective halls and the nearest service points.

The columns designed by the Austrian company Typico based in Lochau are square-shaped with a side length of 1 meter. The multi-function columns are located at all intersections on the exhibition grounds and thus act as an easily recognizable source of information as well as an orientation aid. The columns were used for the first time during Germany’s largest sustainability fair, FAIR FRIENDS, in September 2019.

Thomas Malms, dimedis’s head of product development and integration for kompas, talks about the new digital-signage project at Messe Dortmund: I am convinced that the information column concept will be exceedingly well received by the visitors, on the market and by advertisers. This is the starting signal for a new approach towards sensible combinations of digital and analog media.”
Messe Dortmund uses kompas in the North Entrance, in the congress center, in the Mercure Hotel Dortmund Messe und Kongress and in the exhibition halls for the digital menu boards in the restaurant areas. Messe Dortmund has been relying on kompas since 2008 to control the total of 120 digital-signage installations on the entire exhibition grounds.

kompas®, developed by the experts in digital media distribution at dimedis GmbH, is one of the most powerful and flexible Digital Signage systems on the market. kompas offers Digital Signage users an intuitive interface built around drag-and-drop usability.
