Distec, a specialist provider of industrial, medical and digital signage technology solutions, has partnered with Vestel Visual Solutions, a leading global manufacturer of professional display solutions.
The new partnership introduces a complete end-to-end solution to Distec’s digital signage offering and has opened up a new distribution channel for Vestel. Distec provides a range of interactive digital signage solutions, including commercial grade touchscreen monitors and computers, Point of Sale Systems (POS), digital signage players, interactive indoor and outdoor kiosks, and digital signage software.
The new partnership adds non-touch large format displays to Distec’s portfolio, and it can now offer Vestel’s Professional High Bright Signage Displays (PDH Series) ranging from 43 – 55”. These fully customisable displays enable users to show images to customers, even in brightly lit locations.
Vestel is the world’s number one producer of interactive flat panel displays and one of the top three global manufacturers of TVs and digital signage. The company, which provides solutions for industries such as retail, education, hospitality and corporate sectors across seven continents, has R&D facilities in Turkey, China, and the UK, and will be launching a series of new products later this year and throughout 2021, which will allow integration with software such as NowSignage CMS.
The partnership further complements Distec’s partnership with digital signage software provider NowSignage, whose cloud-based intuitive CMS system gives customers control to send targeted content to any screen at any time. It also brings new opportunities with several hardware partners, including AOPEN’s Chromeboxes, the first commercial grade Chrome OS for digital signage devices and Advantech’s media players, which offer pre-imaging, build and custom BIOS support from entry level up to ultra-slim, multi-display and OPS series. Used in combination with CMS, Distec can now offer a complete digital signage solution for commercial displays, including retail, fast-food and hotel environments.
Commenting on the partnership, Noel Sheppard, general manager of Distec said: Digital Signage remains one of the biggest growth markets, especially considering the important role it is playing in enforcing social distancing guidelines. By expanding our portfolio with Vestel Visual Solutions, we can offer our customers a truly end-to-end digital signage solution and I am excited to have Vestel on board.”
Chris Moore, B2B sales manager, Vestel, added: “This new relationship with Distec will bring together a vast amount of history and experience, giving customers local logistics support from a global leader in digital signage solutions. Vestel fills a clear gap within Distec’s digital signage portfolio, while Distec strengthens our personal approach to distribution through the strength of our partners. This latest long-term and strategic partnership will help to provide customers, across a variety of industries, with a one-stop shop for all of their AV needs.”
