Tripleplay to power digital signage and IPTV at National Grid HQ7 August 2014
The UK’s National Grid has selected Tripleplay to provide an IPTV and digital signage solution for its operational headquarters, National Grid House, Warwick.
National Grid is a utilities business which manages and services the power supplies network backbone in the UK, providing safe gas and electricity to homes and businesses.
The software based solution from Tripleplay, which will be realised by solutions provider ProAV, utilises industry standard HP server and Amino STB technology. It will encompasses ten screens for IPTV and digital signage. The displays will be used for internal communications throughout the office areas and for entertainment in reception and public areas.
“We have developed a real strength in providing solutions into the head office environment,” commented Tripleplay’s head of sales, Matt Cooper. “Our IPTV and digital signage solution is based upon a single server, requires no complex integration work and is much more cost effective than other options in the market; helping stretch already tight budgets further.
“With the support and expertise of our partners ProAV we are confident that National Grid will be delighted with the choice of technology and look forward to developing our relationship in the future.”
