Displaydata launches next generation Graphic Display Labels at NRF

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.

Product summary:

Chroma
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
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.

Luna
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.

Dynamic Communicator
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.

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not.

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...

In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed cloud as a ‘better data center’ and how it adds new capacity (faster) and improves application availability (redundancy). The cloud is a ‘Dynamic Tool for Dynamic Apps’ and resource allocation is an integral part of your application architecture, so use only the resources you need and allocate /de-allocate resources on the fly.
Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes ho...
