Grocery retails leading advertising group, Adcorp360, is rolling out Ping HD’s award-winning EngagePHD content management platform on System on a Chip (SoC) digital signage displays from Samsung.
Expecting to finish the initial rollout within over 2,500 grocery stores throughout the United States, Adcorp360 selected Ping HD’s EngagePHD Digital Signage content management software to power synchronized advertising content across multiple SoC displays located at the point of purchase.
The solution is built around 32” Samsung Smart Signage Platform (SSP) SoC commercial displays which eliminates the need for any external media players or onsite servers and reducing the number of potential failure points. Each screen is connected to the Internet wirelessly through a router over a cellular network and the content is synchronized across all screens.
Typically, grocery customers will see eight to twelve displays in each of the current 100 stores implemented so far, with a display located at each of the checkouts.
EngagePHD; is an easy-to-use, web-based design, content management and network monitoring application. Built using the latest web technologies, this application works seamlessly with Samsung’s SSP commercial digital signage displays. The EngagePHD™ dashboard amongst other powerful features allow operators to manage content, verify operational status, receive automated alerts and book advertising campaigns.
