Samsung Electronics America has launched a range of commercial display solutions to help companies as they get back to business, working with partners to develop specific display solutions that address the safety, social distancing and hygiene needs of customers.
Along with partner Palmer Digital Group, a division of the Industrial Enclosure Corporation, Samsung is introducing a Food and Drug Administration-certified temperature-screening kiosk to screen and track temperatures before entering an establishment. “Palmer Digital Group’s temperature-testing kiosks have become a line of defense for employees and customers,” said Charles Lewis, VP of business and sales at Palmer Digital Group. “Our kiosks are paired with Samsung 32-inch displays, so each user is given clear instructions and information.”
Creative Realities, a digital marketing solutions provider, also partnered with Samsung on no-contact thermal mirror technology to perform real-time temperature inspection and to trigger alerts. The thermal mirror is a cloud-based thermal screening solution with an integrated artificial intelligence platform and an array of reporting capabilities.
Remote management for displays also plays a large role in keeping up with the drive through and curbside pick-up demand at quick-serve restaurants. Samsung’s content and device management solution, MagicInfo, can help franchise owners share menu updates and feature brand promotions in real-time. Samsung is offering a 90-day trial of the MagicInfo Cloud Hosted Solution to provide businesses with the opportunity to test capabilities on their Samsung displays.
Webex on Flip
Hybrid work environments, with some employees based in an office and others telecommuting, creates an even greater need to collaborate remotely. Samsung and Cisco partnered to design Webex on Flip, a platform that lets people work as a team across various offices and environments.
“Work styles are changing, and workplaces are transforming,” said Sandeep Mehra, VP and general manager of Webex Rooms. “The modern workplace is all about collaboration hubs and businesses looking to attract the next generation of employees by adapting and implementing the very kinds of technology Samsung and Cisco partnered to create.”
Webex on Flip features various editing tools and the ability to share and source content from multiple connected devices. Available in 55- and 65-inch screen sizes, it allows for both video conferencing and a digital flipchart simultaneously to produce a more productive and engaging collaboration in any business setting.
Innovative signage solutions allow for real-time updates so businesses can share safety and brand messaging with customers. The new Samsung Pro TV has an extended 16-hour operating time, and this display lets business owners stream content for their customers while continuing to promote safety guidelines and brand information. Businesses can update messaging on the Pro TV with the Samsung Business TV app on their mobile device. For outdoor signage, the new Pro TV Terrace Edition launching later this year is designed to withstand the elements with a brighter display that can stand up to sunlight.
