    Rockford, Illinois - GDS, Inc. (Global Display Solutions), a world leader in display technology for outdoor digital signage is exhibiting an interactive drive-thru solution for the QSR market at Digital Signage Expo booth #822. The 46” LCD screens create camera to camera interaction similar to FaceTime® resulting in an improved store/customer connection.


    The majority of sales are derived from the drive-thru lane and QSR’s recognize the need to bring the store experience to the customer’s car through the use of digital technology.


    There are two main challenges with an interactive, outdoor installation. The first is posed by the outdoor environment requiring a display that can withstand extreme heat without the noise and interference of an air conditioner while protecting against rain, dust, cold and snow. The second challenge is to improve customer satisfaction by the creation of face time with the store employee.


    GDS’s interactive drive-thru solution has proven field operation and front-of-screen performance. The sunlight readable, full outdoor LCD display with an integrated camera and microphone are available now to deploy in drive-thru lanes and are designed and manufactured to withstand the worst of Mother Nature. Replicating the in-store experience through technology, a live video feed of the store employee can be coupled with order confirmation and advertising on one screen to maximize utilization of these digital screens, increase customer interaction and improve efficiency.


    We Know Outdoor!

    GDS MIDAS QSR outdoor displays are designed to operate efficiently under full sunlight conditions without the adverse effects of solar loading on the LCD panel. MIDAS QSR is designed to operate 24/7 and includes a built-in diagnostic system to monitor the operational performance of the display. The GDS LCD displays are designed and manufactured to withstand the rigors of rain, snow, heat, cold, dust and extreme temperature ranges. They feature optical bonding, thermal management, and remote diagnostics to monitor the display from a central location and are engineered so customers with polarized sunglasses can easily read the screen.

    SAN DIEGO, CA - Videotel receives yet another rave review from a satisfied customer. In the habit of providing digital signage media players that can create dynamic visuals that wow viewers, BANG! Creative has named Videotel their top supplier. To that end, the exhibit designer has most recently enlisted the help of the manufacturer’s VP70XD media players for the State of California.


    The VP70XD is perfect for BANG! Creative as their services entail providing signage with major impact for venues such as museums, agricultural exhibits, visitor centers and the like. Particularly impactful at cultural or science centers, or planning sites, the company stakes its business on a well known fact; there’s only one chance to make a first impression. Hence their descriptive name.


    George Bralla from BANG! Creative Inc. recently said of their relationship with the Southern California industrial media player manufacturer, "BANG! Creative Inc., as a leading interpretive exhibit designer and builder, has used Videotel media players in several unique exhibits for the State of California Department of Water Resources and the Department of Parks & Recreation. The players have worked perfectly and reliably under heavy use. We plan to keep Videotel as our number one supplier of media equipment.”


    The VP70XD digital signage media player seamlessly auto loops video, audio, images and photo content directly from a USB or SD card. The industrial media player will seamlessly auto loop a mix of file types while incorporating audio files as background sound. This feature is highly useful as it eliminates the need for an audio extractor. Interactive throughout any experience it facilitates, the VP70XD also allows for various slide show transitions. This increases the number of effects that can be utilized and translated into an eye catching experience for the viewer. The VP70XD retails for $298.
