Helping retailers bring the digital experience in-store
Monday 13 January 2014: Displaydata, formerly ZBD, today unveils a new product set, the Dynamic Solution Suite, introducing next generation, fully graphic electronic shelf-edge labels (ESL) at the National Retail Federation Big Show (NRF). The new range - consisting of three display families: Aura, Chroma and Luna - will enable retailers to select the most appropriate and cost-effective digital display solution for their business.
2014 is set to be a breakthrough year for consumers and how they behave with in-store retail technology. In particular, the ESL Bluetooth beacon - an integral new feature from Displaydata - allows retailers to deliver rich content that enhances the customer experience. It allows retailers to push promotions and individualised messaging out to consumers based on their buying behaviour (when combined with a loyalty scheme), helping retailers to influence consumer behaviour at the shelf-edge and informing buying decisions.
The Chroma is the first three-colour display range, giving retailers the chance to choose between Red, Black and White. Chroma displays can be used to promote logos and allow retailers to present enhanced promotional data at the shelf-edge. Displaydata's electrophoretic display technology provides a clear, engaging, visual experience with replaceable batteries for longer shelf-life.
Aura is a two-colour display range, allowing retailers to display black on paper-white using the latest electrophoretic display technology. The Aura range also offers a 180⁰ viewing angle, with replaceable batteries for longer shelf-life.
Following the success of Displaydata's Epop range, Luna offers retailers the most affordable fully graphic ESL on the market, with improved white state and a wider viewing angle. Similar to the Aura and Chroma family of displays the Luna is powered by replaceable batteries for longer shelf-life.
As well as introducing the next generation of graphic display labels, Displaydata will also be showcasing its new Dynamic Communicator which, no matter the size of retail estate, provides the single infrastructure required to manage in-store displays centrally. One Dynamic Communicator can cover an area of 50,000sq ft. and 65,000 ESLs and provides true two-way communication, reducing the time needed for store pricing updates from days or weeks, to a matter of minutes.
The Dynamic Solution Suite also allows retailers to analyse system status and performance across all stores in real-time and is the only solution that ensures 100% price accuracy is possible at all times.
Andrew Dark, Chief Executive Officer, Displaydata, said: "Having evolved our business, products and software, we now have a complete solution that will enable the widespread adoption of shelf-edge displays across retailers of all shapes and sizes and revolutionise the customer experience at the point where it matters most. As well as helping retailers to fully engage customers at the shelf-edge, our next generation products and infrastructure allow retailers to adopt agile pricing strategies and instantly change prices across their stores to offer promotions depending on the time of day, the season or the locality."
Displaydata will be exhibiting in Hall 3A, Stand No. 4231.
Displaydata is a venture-backed private company established in 2000. It is the leader in the design and supply of fully graphic electronic shelf labels (ESLs) and dynamic digital display solutions for retailers.
Displaydata's Dynamic Solution Suite features fully graphic, high definition, zero power displays of up to three colours. These are connected with a high-speed two-way RF 'light touch' infrastructure, and controlled by a suite of management and information software. Centrally managed and fully scalable, the solution easily, wirelessly and instantly updates everything from an individual ESL to an entire retail enterprise.
Displaydata's ESL Bluetooth Beacons enable promotional offers and added-value information to be sent direct to customers' smartphones, for a more engaging and rewarding in-store experience.
Displaydata will debut its new branding at The National Retail Federation Big Show (Hall 3A, Stand Number 4231) in New York on 12-14 January 2014, as well as launching significant additions to its product and software line-up. For more information visit www.displaydata.com or contact:

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and shared the must-have mindsets for removing complexity from the develop...

While not quite mainstream yet, WebRTC is starting to gain ground with Carriers, Enterprises and Independent Software Vendors (ISV’s) alike. WebRTC makes it easy for developers to add audio and video communications into their applications by using Web browsers as their platform. But like any market, every customer engagement has unique requirements, as well as constraints. And of course, one size does not fit all. In her session at WebRTC Summit, Dr. Natasha Tamaskar, Vice President, Head of C...

The idea behind this session is my blog post - 5 Logstash Alternatives - which is unfortunately too short to do the presented log shippers justice. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Radu Gheorghe, Software Engineer at Sematext Group, will talk more about the things that matter: kinds of buffers, protocols, ways of parsing, correlating and de-duplicating messages, as well as supported inputs and outputs. And of course performance. All this should let you know which log shipper...

Who are you? How do you introduce yourself? Do you use a name, or do you greet a friend by the last four digits of his social security number? Assuming you don’t, why are we content to associate our identity with 10 random digits assigned by our phone company? Identity is an issue that affects everyone, but as individuals we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ben Klang, Founder & President of Mojo Lingo, discussed the impact of technology on identity. Sho...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...
