“ArtPlayer is inspired by Bill Gates who since the early 1990s has displayed art on framed and wall-mounted PC screens at his mansion."

ArtPlayer is a plug-and-play instore TV and digital signage service. It displays high-resolution fine art images, and allows the user to create his own messages, thus transforming any screen that's connected to an internet-enabled PC into a dynamic infotainment gallery.
In contrast to traditional digital signage which is designed for a retail environment where the aim is usually to grab people's attention by displaying dynamic content, ArtPlayer is better suited to quiet surroundings where people stay for longer periods of time such as restaurants, office buildings and libraries.
As well as displaying user-generated content, ArtPlayer can be used to:
- Brand organisations or venues by setting the tone and generating an appropriate ambience in locations such as hotels and restaurants
- Inspire and stimulate by generating an atmosphere of creativity and innovation in workplaces
- Provide edutainment in museums and libraries
- Improve patient surroundings in hospitals and nursing homes. A large body of evidence in recognised journals suggests that patients recover more quickly in stimulating environments.
- Provide entertainment anywhere where people have to wait or in the home on PCs and flat screen TVs
Morten Kryger, Managing Director of Cumedin, says:
“ArtPlayer is inspired by Bill Gates who since the early 1990s has displayed art on framed and wall-mounted PC screens at his mansion. Now, anyone can get the basic ArtPlayer service for free and display world-famous fine art images on screens at home or in their workplace. Plus, the professional ArtPlayer service, for which clients pay a small fee enabling them to display their own content as well as ArtPlayer's fine art images, targets a worldwide market that's growing rapidly.”
According to iSuppli, the digital signage market is expected to grow by 25 percent in 2010, reaching roughly two million units, up from 1.6 million in 2009. iSuppli further predict sector growth of more than 40% annually from 2011 to 2013.
“We definitely believe that there is a position for a simple and inspiring communication tool like ArtPlayer in this matured market, and this is an excellent time to be entering it. We've carried out a number of pilot projects in Denmark and the response has been very positive so we're very excited about what the future may hold,” comments Morten Kryger.
ArtPlayer allows the user to specify which collection of fine art images they wish to display as well as altering image duration and background color. ArtPlayer connected screens can be updated centrally through any Internet-enabled PC, and Pro users can include their own logo and generate their own content.
