City of Durango Installs Mvix Digital Signage System in its City Transit Fleet3 min read
In an effort spearheaded by the City of Durango, CO and Professional Computer Solutions (PCS), a preferred Mvix partner, the “Durango T” is now equipped with High-Definition monitors for alerts, announcements and entertainment for its commuters. As a part of this project, Professional Computer Solutions, a Durango-based System Integrator installed Mvix Ceeno Networkable Signage Systems to showcase content on 22-inch 1080p LCD screens mounted inside transit buses.
Operationally, Durango T’s project involves displaying routes, schedules and local-business advertising on LCD screens mounted in commuter buses. As these buses pull into the transit center in downtown Durango, all vehicles are turned-off as commuters embark. Upon restarting the bus, Mvix Ceeno automatically downloads the new information from the City’s network servers and starts playback.
PCS, a 25-year company, is a premier IT service provider focusing on business networks and computer systems. It specializes in network design and services in the City of Durango, offering turnkey systems and managed solutions for local government and commercial businesses. A certified Dell Partner, PCS has helped clients in the education, hotels and restaurants businesses to setup their IT and AV infrastructure.
In its search for low-cost, small-footprint and energy-efficient signage platforms, PCS tested multiple signage systems – ranging from stand-alone PC-based systems to embedded, legacy signage platforms. After extensive trials, Mvix Ceeno Digital Signage Platform was formally chosen for the transit network project. “The overall objective of this project was to inform and educate commuters and enhance their transit experience. Our primary goal was to have a robust signage platform with 99.99% uptime, which could be updated remotely over the network. Mvix signage systems were just the perfect fit in this infrastructure. These systems work on solid-state storage and are highly reliable. Apart from their low cost, they are extremely user friendly to setup and implement” said Erik Jessen, Service Manager at PCS. “We are extremely pleased with the customer service and technical support team of Mvix. These individuals have made the project implementation a great success,” stated Erik.
Mvix Ceeno is designed for a stable, robust operation and PCS’s signage application is an exemplary use of this platform”, stated Mark Shoe, Marketing Director at Mvix. “The affordable pricing structure and intuitive, hassle-free content management system is at the core of Mvix Digital Signage platform. We are proud of our partnership with PCS on this innovative project. Their impressive implementation of signage content update over a wireless network infrastructure is commendable.”
