Jason Cremins interviewed by InAVate discusses the impact of AI on retail digital signage

Jason_2016_600

InAVate EMEA is dedicated to covering the trends and technologies shaping the PRO AV market today. Through media products and events this publication provides news, analysis, interviews, features, case studies, research and resources for professional installers and users of Audio Visual equipment throughout the Europe, Middle East and Africa region.

Tim Kridel asks Jason Cremins, Founder and CEO of digital signage software provider Signagelive, how Artificial Intelligence (AI) can be applied in the sector.
analytics-on-a-crowd-in-the-street

TK: For retailers and other businesses that use digital signage, one longstanding challenging is quantifying the reach and effectiveness of both the screens (e.g., locations) and the content on them. How does AI enable them to get deeper, actionable insights that wouldn’t be possible without AI?

JC: We are seeing a growing number of retailers either adding or looking to add audience measurement technologies to serve two functions. The first is to collect viewer data that can be analysed against the proof of play (media logs) and proof of display (device status data) that we collect and report within our platform. Adding proof of view completes the dataset, allowing them to [apply] POS sales data and other internal and external metrics (e.g., weather) to provide a deep insight into the impact of their digital signage network and content strategy.

The second use case is using the data gathered (as per above) to dynamical shape and schedule the media playing on the digital signage displays. In this scenario, the scheduled content is adjusted at the point of playback to optimise the content shown based on the insights gathered.

TK: This press release mentions that you have some case studies in the works. What are some across-the-board lessons learned so far? For example, what have you and/or your partners learned about what makes for compelling content, or ideal signage locations or other things? Any old rules/strategies/best practices that no longer appear to make sense?

JC: The key to success continues to be to keep the content fresh, relevant and engaging. Data-driven content combined with dynamic scheduling based on audience insights are set to replace pre-scheduled and published playlists of media that are based on historical general demographic and day-part data.

TK: AI keeps getting more sophisticated because of advances in processing power, algorithms, etc. Regarding your answer to question 1, what additional types of analytics might be possible in, say, five or 10 years?

JC: From our perspective, we are excited to see how the image and video analysis AI technologies will further enhance how content is optimised for individuals and groups of customers.

DVWREtpWsAAkAUp

Here are just a few highlights of our exclusive demonstrations that we will be showcasing at DSE.

Delivering EPOS data driven digital signage

Signagelive are seeing an increase number of digital menu board projects requiring data-driven product and pricing. By utilising our Widget Development Framework we have the ability to build dynamic menu boards that connect to third party data sources such as customer EPOS. At DSE we will be showcasing Lavu as one example of a data integrated digital menu board solution.

Lavu are the leading global provider on mPOS (mobile point of sale) solutions for the food service sector. The solution is delivered using a custom iOS/iPad bundle connected to their cloud and to a range of peripherals.

Integrating digital signage with Queue Management

Signagelive have found that in Retail markets often digital signage has been siloed from other technologies used in store such as Queue Management. Our partnership with Qmatic demonstrates how queue management and call forward solutions can be incorporated in digital signage displays delivered using Signagelive Widgets and data integration with the Qmatic Orchestra platform.

Qmatic are the global leaders in providing ‘customer journey’ technology for retail and public sector customers.

Bringing digital signage to the Meeting room

Signagelive have delivered many internal communications projects for digital signage, and meeting room solutions are the ‘go to’ application for many AV resellers and Systems Integrators. At DSE we will demonstrate that Signagelive is suitable for meeting rooms by showcasing our enhanced Calendar Widget with Microsoft Office 365 and Google Calendar integration which now offers room booking capabilities.

In addition when in the room our integration with our new partnership Kramer Control, demonstrates how Signagelive managed devices can be incorporated into audio, lighting and enable switching AV equipment from digital signage to presentation modes.

Keeping digital signage content fresh with Social Media

Signagelive are working with Seenspire to provide a Social Media visualisation and moderation solution, in addition to an Infotainment offering. Both are delivered using HTML5 and are available in Signagelive’s Marketplace.

The Seenspire Infochannel offering takes a unique approach by offering a fixed cost per display regardless of the amount of content or the content source. This allows customers to build a content feed by Category (News, Sport, Health, Trivia etc.) from Reuters, Associated Press etc. and select a language of their choice. If the customer wants to change the category, provider or language they can do so within the Seenspire portal at no additional cost.

Add live streaming to digital signage with IBM Cloud video

Another new application that is available in the Signagelive Marketplace is IBM Cloud Video. IBM Cloud video allows you to instantly broadcast live and on-demand video content to Signagelive supported players. IBM Cloud video allows centralised management and control for both external and internal video communications, and features Watson artificial intelligence capabilities to gain insights from unstructured video content. Incorporating IBM Cloud Video within a Signagelive solution unlocks live streaming capabilities for CEO ‘Town Hall’ meetings and company wide video training.

Delivering personalised digital signage using Video Analytics

Digital Signage Network operators, especially those incorporating advertising, have a need to understand who is looking at a display and for how long in order to prove the effectiveness of their digital signage content.

Anonymous Video Analytics (AVA) achieves this by using facial recognition algorithms identify the gender, age group, and mood of viewers. Historically, this was only achievable using powerful (expensive) PCs but AdMobilize has changed the market by launching the AdBeacon Camera, that performs AVA and pushes the data to a cloud-based portal for analysis.

Signagelive works in conjunction with AdMobilize enabling customers to correlate audience data with proof of play reporting, resulting in information that details what played back when, who was watching (gender, age range, ethnicity) and what their facial expressions (mood) were. In addition, utilising the data captured from the AdBeacon Camera we can perform near real-time analysis and use the resulting data to change what is shown on a display and is available in the Signagelive Marketplace.
