ViewSonic unveils digital signage bundle

From CMPNet Asia comes this news of a hardware-based digital signage solution from ViewSonic:

"In a move that support several key trends in the display market, ViewSonic yesterday said it would begin offering a bundled package to integrators creating solutions for the point-of-sale and signage arena.

"The bundle includes ViewSonic's WMA 100 Wireless Media Adapter, Wireless Media Gateway, 17-inch N1750W LCD display and scheduling firmware.

"The move comes as more technology products originally created for the consumer market are finding the way into commercial environments. It also reflects the need for integrators and vendors to develop full value-added solutions that offer higher margins than selling stand-alone products.

"ViewSonic is initially targeting about 180 of its audio-visual partners to sell the solution, expected to hit the streets sometime during the fourth quarter but also will roll it out to IT solution providers once the company chooses distributors to support it, Volpe said. 'This solution plays right in the middle of the IT and AV guys,' Volpe said. 'They're excited about it because it's easy to install, reliable and affordable. It's an enhancement to both of their businesses.'"
