We are pleased to welcome the prestigious Confederation Centre of the Arts to the ScreenScape Community. They provide further testimony to the value we offer multi-faceted public institutions. Conventional digital signage projects at multi-venue destinations like theirs can be expensive and overly complex. Venue Networking addresses these challenges at a fraction of the traditional cost.
Charlottetown, PE (PRWEB) October 13, 2009
National Historic Site of Canada, the Confederation Centre of the Arts, has announced the selection and deployment of ScreenScape's Venue Networking platform. ScreenScape is being used to power screen displays which promote the Centre's products, services and partners.
Mike Cochrane, Chief Operations Officer noted, "ScreenScape improves communication with our guests at the Centre. We needed a solution that we could program quickly and could be implemented without breaking our budget. ScreenScape was easy to use and was much lower in cost than other approaches we've explored in the past."
"We think it makes sense to use screen displays in our Centre to present relevant information to our patrons before they purchase tickets and during intermissions. Already we've used ScreenScape to preview performances with video, to recognize sponsors and donors, and much more. Of course it also presents a great opportunity for us to tell our current guests about other performances, services and community events that are going on within the facility. We depend on repeat business so, for us, the importance of on-site marketing is hard to overstate." added David Mackenzie, CEO of Confederation Centre.
Cochrane went on to comment on the flexibility of the service, "Our Centre contains a large soft seat theatre, a box office, a restaurant, a coffee shop, an art gallery, and a public library. Some of these venues are directly controlled by the Centre, and some are operated by sister organizations. We wanted a solution that maintained a single look-and-feel, but still permitted each venue to achieve their independent communication goals. ScreenScape's venue networking approach was a perfect fit: elegant, efficient and cost-effective for each of our stakeholders."
Mark Hemphill, ScreenScape Founder and Chief Product Officer, commented: "We are pleased to welcome the prestigious Confederation Centre of the Arts to the ScreenScape Community. They provide further testimony to the value we offer multi-faceted public institutions. Conventional digital signage projects at multi-venue destinations like theirs can be expensive and overly complex. Venue Networking addresses these challenges at a fraction of the traditional cost."
