Helius Digital Signage Covers Canopy Building


Helius Inc., the worldwide leader in IPTV solutions for business, today announced it has installed a comprehensive digital signage solution for the Canopy Group in their flagship building, Canopy 1. Helius technology powers a 42” LCD screen in the main lobby and 17” LCD screens in each of the elevators.

Digital signage content is updated automatically throughout the day from various sources. Building managers can update content from their desktop. Cushman Wakefield, the building manager, is planning to use the signage solution as a primary communication tool to employees of the tenant companies, alerting them to building closures, repairs and other issues that affect their daily routines.

The digital signs installed in the elevators draw their power from the elevator and receive content over a wireless link. These screens show a regularly-updated collection of news and information videos with audio tracks. In addition to their informational benefits, the elevator signs reduce the perceived travel time of passengers.

“The response to this new communication tool has been very positive,” said Gerald Garbe, Operations Director for Canopy Properties. “We are examining a number of additional uses for the Helius solution to improve our tenants’ experience in our other buildings.”

“This deployment has demonstrated the business value of a commercial building implementation of digital signage,” said Jeffrey Curtis, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Helius, Inc. “The Helius technology is performing extremely well and we are validating not only our technologies, but the market opportunity for digital signage as a communication tool.”
