Vivitek Launches Novo Wireless Presentation System

Vivitek has launched a new Novo Wireless Presentation System aimed at small to medium-sized business like cafes, beauty salons, garages, small retailers and even office reception areas. Vivitek’s new NovoDSmini digital signage solution can be connected to any display device with HDMI. Like Vivitek’s existing NovoDS solutions, the NovoDSmini benefits from NovoDS Studio, the simple to use playlist editing and device management software. Users do not need any programming skills to create digital signage to capture their customers’ attention in any environment. The NovoDSmini can play content ranging from text, audio, photos, videos, webpages, YouTube, Twitter and weather updates. The 36 pre-arranged templates allow users to easily create information about an SME’s services or offers. 

NovoDS Studio software helps to effortlessly create digital signage. Its multi-page-playlist editing and scheduling flexibility — by hour, day, week or month — means SMEs can use the product to deliver relevant messages over their chosen time-frame, without having to frequently update content manually. For instance, a cafeteria can program the NovoDSmini to display the breakfast options from 6 a.m. to 11 a.m., the lunch options from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m., followed by dinner specials from 5 p.m. on. This dynamic content creates far more impact on audiences than just showing and repeating one playlist. Furthermore, images are displayed in Full-HD 1080p, NovoDSmini ensures that the content displayed is eye-catching, even in smaller areas.

For shop owners with multiple digital signage screens to manage, NovoDSmini also provides a centralized device management function to enable users to control all of the NovoDS devices on the network. This ensures that SMEs are kept productive and focused on their task at hand, rather than spending time on managing digital signage devices. Users can monitor the device or devices’ status easily and they can update all the devices’ content at once, or separate them into groups and assign different schedules per group, according to the content, venue and the time it is due to be displayed. Users also have the option to synchronize content over selected devices, to create a stunning effect across multiple signage displays.
