Eclipse Digital Media have launched a new digital menu board solution that can be updated using an Excel spreadsheet called ‘EMBED’.
The EMBED menu board solution is powered by ONELAN digital signage media players (NTBs) and DCE software. This allows the NTBs to be updated via external sources and in this case, Excel spreadsheets. They are able display various types of content including HTML5, CSS3, video, RSS feeds, images, text and audio.
As Accredited ONELAN Advanced Content Design Partners, Eclipse have developed a range of digital menu board layouts that include sushi bars, coffee shops and QSRs plus interactive touch screen menu board content with table reservation functionality, all of which come with the ability to update content via Excel.
Colin Thody, Director of Eclipse Digital Media talks about the partnership with ONELAN and the digital menu board opportunity: “When we saw how DCE could control content on the NTBs via external sources we couldn’t wait to get our hands on it to start developing content and see just how far we could push it. We immediately started to see that by using our experience in the foodservice industry there was a great opportunity for the development of digital menu boards, not only for the obvious QSR market but also for smaller café’s, school cafeterias, restaurants, pubs / bars and care homes”
EMBED digital menu boards can be implemented as an out of the box standalone solution (all hardware, software and content situated in-house) or licensed solution (reduced hardware, subscribes information from an EMBED server). Eclipse offer a variety of menu board layout packages that can be edited along with digital media content services to design bespoke content for clients as required.
