At this year's ISE dimedis will also be presenting kompas proof of play. kompas proof of play allows monitors and screens to be monitored live via webcam.

Bosch Experience Zone Digital signage has already conquered the retail sector and is now making headway in DIY superstores. The Bosch Experience Zone is an innovative shop-in-shop project for DIY superstores worldwide. Its main objective is to create a brand island in which the customers receive information and inspiration and are able to try out products in a practice-oriented environment. The Bosch Experience Zone adopts a holistic approach and integrates interactive digital signage into modern shopfitting. The central information terminal is run using the kompas digital-signage software supplied by the Cologne-based software company dimedis. As an eye-catcher in the Experience Zone, the terminal boosts customer loyalty and encourages customers to make purchases and interact using a touchscreen. Besides providing value-added in the form of information, the terminal also moves the Bosch products to the forefront of the customers' interest. With 23 languages available, the user interface can be used flexibly around the world, the information gathered can be printed out and taken away, and information can be transmitted to a smartphone using the QR code.

Wayfinding for shopping malls As yet another highlight, dimedis will be presenting kompas wayfinding on a column like those used at the Abu Dhabi Mall or the Neutor Galerie shopping mall in Germany. On the dimedis booth, visitors to ISE will be able to try out the wayfinding solution for trade fairs and shopping malls for themselves. For the first time dimedis will be presenting a wayfinding solution using outdoor info columns of the type already used by municipalities in Great Britain. kompas wayfinding is an intuitive and intelligent wayfinding system. The interaction with kompas wayfinding takes place via a touchscreen. kompas wayfinding documents all the users' actions and search requests anonymously and thus serves as a permanent survey tool. The heart of this system is the intuitive LogoCloud:
kompas 8.0: rule-based booking With the latest version of kompas, a new feature is making its début: rule-based booking. This feature enables kompas to calculate all content dynamically on the basis of predefined criteria. It is now possible to define how often each spot (e.g. a video) should run during a certain period of time, e.g. "30 times an hour between 12:00 and 18:00, but only from Monday to Friday", and which spot has the highest priority. In order to optimally plan the contents' airtime, kompas checks whether sufficient airtime is available for all content or for a certain spot.
Priority, number of slots and the airtime can be set here. (Source: dimedis)
