In the spring of 2009, Mr. Wall received a Black Box® Digital Signage Solutions catalog. Familiar with digital signage, Mr. Wall was impressed with the capabilities and affordability of the iCOMPEL™ system featured in the catalog. Two days later,
the president of the bingo association called.
Mr. Wall toured the bingo hall and learned how much time the people at the association spent making and changing cardboard signs and posting them. The president of the association wanted Mr. Wall to set up an automated slide show that he could run on
a laptop. While that was a do-able option, Mr. Wall suggested a much more flexible and entertaining solution—iCOMPEL digital signage.
He explained how digital signage content (ticket information for the different groups) could be loaded and scheduled into the iCOMPEL system depending on the day, the time, and the group.
"I really liked the flexibility of the iCOMPEL system," explains Mr. Wall. "It has multiple zones and if I want to add live feeds, local news, the time, etc., I can. This was my first experience with Black Box but not my first with digital signage. So
I called Tech Support before we bought the system to make sure it would do what we wanted. And it does."
