Ricoh unveils innovative mobile solution for digital signage

Two turnkey packages with a choice of two or three ultra-short-throw projectors combined with Scalable Display Technologies edge blending software

Ricoh Americas Corporation is offering a large scale alternative to flat panel digital signage systems with a unique, new digital signage solution that is mobile and produces a larger image than conventional flat-panel displays. This projector-based system can provide the creative freedom to project onto curved, conical and even spherical surfaces – an excellent way to easily transform and share information in today's dynamic and rapidly changing work environment.

Available now, the Ricoh Digital Signage Solution packages Ricoh's groundbreaking, highly portable PJ WX4141N ultra-short-throw projectors with a Lenovo computer preloaded with Scalable Display Technologies edge blending software, and all the needed cables and accessories for projecting brilliant signage or graphics measuring up to 15 feet wide whenever and wherever they're needed. The solution is ideal for hotel lobbies, corporate events, hospital foyers, museums, clubs – anywhere one wants hard-to-miss signage.

Ricoh will demonstrate the system at the InfoComm 2014 show, June 14-20 in Las Vegas at Booth #C5825. Ricoh is focused on information mobility – helping customers harness the power of information. This innovative digital signage solution is the newest offering from Ricoh to help customers make information work for them.

"Traditional digital signage solutions constrain you to the size of the display, its rectangular shape, a flat screen and the place you affixed it to the wall," said Matt Sakauchi, Vice President, Technology Marketing, Ricoh Americas Corporation. "For those who need more flexibility – big, bold, shape-shiftable images and the ability to move them around at will – the Ricoh Digital Signage Solution is a perfect way to transform and share information and inspire audiences. It comes with everything you need, fully integrated and ready to switch on."

The Ricoh Digital Signage Solution is based on the unique ultra-short-throw RICOH PJ WX4141N Ultra Short Throw Business Projection System, which can be placed from 4.6 to 9.8 inches from any wall or screen in offices, classrooms and public spaces. Each projector displays a bright, crisp 3300lm image measuring up to 80 inches diagonal.

The projector's compact, lightweight design (6.6 lbs) simplifies transport, placement on tables or mounting on walls. It can be used for front projection from below or above the screen or rear projection from below or above. The Ricoh Digital Signage Solution combines two or three projectors in a single solution, employing powerful edge-blending software from Scalable Display Technologies to easily create seamless images from two or three synched projectors. Scalable's camera-based, auto-calibration software gives the end user the ease of a single button calibration process to create large and wide aspect ratio high quality displays.

The MSRP for Ricoh Digital Signage Solution is $15,000 for the two-projector version (up to 10-foot wide projection) and $19,375 for the three-projector version (15-foot wide projection). The solution is available through Ricoh professional AV distributors Shoreview Distribution and Stampede.
