Madrid’s Ministry of Science and Innovation Installs Digital Signage from ONELAN

ONELAN digital signage was chosen by Spain’s Ministry of Science and Innovation as an innovative way to improve communication in their offices.

The Ministry for Science and Innovation (Ministerio de Ciencia e Innovación) required a new, innovative and modern solution for their communications. At the same time they wanted to give their reception area a contemporary ‘hi tech’ image in keeping with their activities.

A digital signage solution comprising ONELAN Net-Top-Box (NTB) Millenium 5500s has been installed by RPS Audiovisuales, ONELAN’s Spanish distributor, to achieve this.

The Ministry wanted to provide a better more interactive service, and did not wish to use printed brochures alone to achieve this. By installing a six screen video wall with a movement sensor, visitors are able to see relevant information without necessarily having to ask employees on reception.

In addition the Ministry wanted to make the results of some recently published research easily accessible to visitors. ONELAN digital signage with interactive touch screens was installed to allow visitors to easily find information relating to particular projects they are interested in.

The Ministry also wanted to entertain visitors while they waited in reception, and so two 52” screens have been placed in the reception area, showing Ministry information and videos, in addition to some advertising and local news. This has resulted in a much more ‘high tech’ image for the Ministry and also ensures visitors are both entertained and informed when they come to the Ministry.

Finally, the introduction of ONELAN’s digital signage has reduced the requirement for a large amount of printed information and brochures, and has also resulted in staff efficiencies.

“One of the positive aspects of the installation here (in the Ministry) is that it demonstrates to other officials and businessmen who visit that by using digital signage it does not have to be costly to do high quality marketing.

“…it is the most appropriate solution for our needs and many individuals at the Ministry have been involved. With a project of this kind, we all work as one team: both those who choose the content and those providing technical support.”

– Santiago Asensio, Ministerio de Ciencia e Innovación
