Independent Café Increases Efficiency and Customer Satisfaction with ViewSonic Commercial Displays and myViewBoard Manager Software

SOLUTION BRIEF

Independent Café Increases Efficiency and Customer Satisfaction with ViewSonic Commercial Displays and myViewBoard Manager Software

The owners of a popular independent café were looking for ways to increase efficiency around their menu signage. At the same time, they were about to undergo an interior remodel. While the brother-sister duo was fond of their chalkboard-look menu signs, keeping the content up-to-date had become tedious, and the look would feel outdated when the interior refresh was complete. Both fans of the contemporary look of digital signage, the entrepreneurs were nonetheless wary about cost. They also didn’t want a system that would be difficult to learn and manage. They were skeptical that they would find digital signage in their price range that would also be reliable and look great.

The more technically minded of the two, the sister began exploring the world of digital signage. As she learned about its many uses, she began to see benefits beyond being cool-looking and enabling quick content changes for their menu board. For one thing, they could use digital content to help distract and entertain the increasingly long lines at the cafe. They could also use the signage to promote high-inventory, high-margin items. She also liked the idea of replacing their cluttered cork bulletin board with a digital sign to showcase the many local cultural events that friends and family members were involved in.

After getting up to speed on the basics of digital signage, the path forward was less clear. Google searches led her to companies clearly pushing their own agenda. She wanted independent advice on products from a range of suppliers – from someone experienced in the business of helping companies


When [the owner] saw it in person, the display was bright and stunning. Text was crisp and legible while the images were clear and vibrant. Line-item lists like menus popped off the screen. Guaranteed to play multimedia from internal storage or a USB fl ash drive for up to 16 hours a day, seven days a week, this model was less costly than those with 24/7 playback – perfect for their needs.


like hers install this type of equipment. She found what she was looking for at a Chamber of Commerce networking event: a local AV installer well-versed in commercial display solutions for small-to-medium sized retailers and restaurants – not just home theater installs, though they did that, too.

After listening to her goals, the AV engineer recommended that they only consider reputable brands, which could deliver the performance and reliability she wanted. While she knew from her research that she could find less expensive options, she agreed. She and her brother were too busy handling other aspects of the business (and their lives) to invest in anything other than a solid solution with a reliably long lifespan. Among the highly rated wellknown brands, ViewSonic professional-quality commercial displays had exceptional pricing. Select models were also guaranteed for use up to 24/7, so she was confident that they could handle their restaurant’s schedule for many years to come.

The AV consultant informed her that the ViewSonic brand was known for delivering displays with stunning images, which she saw for herself when she visited their showroom. The ViewSonic® CDE5512 55-inch display with 3840 x 2160 resolution was top on her list based on size and price. When she saw it in person, the display was bright and stunning. Text was crisp and legible while the images were clear and vibrant. Line-item lists like menus popped off the screen. Guaranteed to play multimedia from internal storage or a USB flash drive for up to 16 hours a day, seven days a week, this model was less costly than those with 24/7 playback – perfect for their needs. Additionally, the included myViewBoard® Manager software would allow them to remotely manage the displays. If for some reason they both had to be away at closing time, they could remotely power down the displays from their laptops.

Finally, before making a recommendation to her brother, she wanted to understand how they would get content onto the displays. She learned that there were two options. They could upload content onto a USB drive, which would then connect to the display. Or, they could purchase a one-time perpetual license for ViewSonic Signage Manager software, which would allow them to create and schedule playlists. After a walk-through of the software, this seemed like the way to go.

When she presented these ideas to her brother-business partner, his primary concern was that they create a content plan before committing to the investment. They realized that they would need to invest some time upfront, creating an assortment of template designs that could then be quickly updated as needed down the line.

Ultimately, they decided to purchase three ViewSonic CDE5512 55-inch displays. Two would replace the chalkboard menus. They would use the third to promote high-inventory and high margin items while including diverting content like live weather, sports, and music videos. To ensure that the content looked as good as the displays, they would hire a graphic design intern from the local college to create a menu of templates that reinforced their brand look and feel.

Several months after the remodel and display installation were complete, the duo reported that the signage has been exceptionally well-received by their customers. The regulars appreciated the modern new look and the fun digital programming. Patrons old and new began ordering more of the promoted items – helping reduce product outages and increasing sales of high-margin items. At this point they decided the time was right to install a fourth digital display in place of their traditional bulletin board.

Peruvian School Boosts Hybrid Learning and English Language Instruction with ViewSonic ViewBoard Interactive Displays

CASE STUDY

Peruvian School Boosts Hybrid Learning and English Language Instruction with ViewSonic ViewBoard Interactive Displays

SCHOOL

Founded in 1954, Centro Cultural Peruano Norteamericano (CCPNA) is a distinguished educational institution dedicated to English language instruction in southern Peru. Headquartered in the city of Arequipa, it not only serves as a center for language learning but also plays a vital role in fostering cultural exchange and promoting American culture through a diverse range of events such as plays, musicals, art galleries, film screenings, round tables, conferences, and more.

Apart from its main office in Arequipa, CCPNA has branches in the cities of Puno, Juliaca, Ilo, Moquegua, and Tacna. With a comprehensive array of 20 English learning programs tailored to different age groups, academic intensity, and frequency, the institution accommodates a total of 7,000 students. These programs offer immersive National Geographic Learning experiences, ensuring a dynamic and engaging learning environment.

“ViewSonic was the most suitable solution to meet our needs. The fact that other companies off ered similar teaching support tools that were only compatible with Android helped us make our decision.”


— Álvaro Salinas, CCPNA General Director

THE CHALLENGE

line drawing of a circular mazeline drawing of a circular maze
  • Contar con pantallas táctiles que potencien la experiencia híbrida del aprendizaje del idioma inglés en todas sus sedes

  • Que los equipos ofrezcan la posibilidad de usar herramientas no solo dentro del ecosistema Android, sino en Windows y la plataforma Workspace de Google

  • Integrar una plataforma que permita el uso de herramientas para la fácil administración de los equipos en cuanto a encendido y apagado remoto, mensajería y demás para los profesores

  • Implementar todas estas mejoras en pocos meses para el retorno a clases de los alumnos en los primeros meses de 2023

CCPNA needed an easy way of implementing hybrid teaching across all of its campuses. Initially, they experimented with non-native touchscreen solutions and television sets. However, these options proved unsatisfactory due to subpar resolution and limited functionality. As a result, CCPNA embarked on a quest to find alternative teaching methods that could eff ectively support their new educational approach.

Álvaro Salinas, General Director of CCPNA, explains, “To achieve this, we required a cutting-edge interactive display as the cornerstone of our implementation. While we were already utilizing AI cameras and microphones in our classrooms, we lacked an interactive display solution with a robust platform to complement this transition.”

Consequently, the institution’s authorities directed their efforts towards finding a display that off ered user-friendly teaching tools and functionalities, such as those provided by the ViewSonic® myViewBoard® platform for content creation and casting. They sought an easily manageable application that could enhance both physical and online learning experiences.

The implementation process was a race against time as it needed to be completed by the beginning of 2023. To accomplish this, they relied on a slot-in OPS mini PC to power the display, making it the central component of the interactive learning experience. This setup enabled the utilization of myViewBoard software and provided teachers and students with an extensive range of resources.

THE SOLUTION

line drawing of a jigsaw puzzle pieceline drawing of a jigsaw puzzle piece
  • 109 ViewBoard IFP6532 interactive displays, and 11 ViewBoard IFP8632 interactive displays across all CCPNA sites in southern Peru. An additional display was installed at Instituto de Diseño Thomas Jefferson

  • Teacher training to effectively utilize all the functionalities that enhance the hybrid learning experience

  • myViewBoard software and Manager Advanced

After careful evaluation of various market proposals, CCPNA made the decision to procure a total of 120 ViewSonic® ViewBoard® interactive displays for their campuses. This included 109 ViewBoard IFP6532 65-inch interactive displays, and 11 ViewBoard IFP8632 86-inch interactive displays. To complement these displays, 120 VPC25-W53-O1 slot-in PC units were also included in the order. These technology resources were installed not only at CCPNA branches in southern Peru but also at their sister institution, the Instituto de Diseño Thomas Jefferson.

To facilitate efficient management and control of the interactive display network, ViewSonic® Manager Advanced™ software was seamlessly integrated into the solution. This software offers centralized control for executing tasks, performing updates, and sending messages or alarms directly to the displays, eliminating the need for physical presence in the classroom. Undoubtedly, this feature is a significant time and resource-saving advantage. Thanks to this implementation, 100% of the classrooms at the CCPNA Arequipa headquarters are now equipped with interactive displays. In the other cities, coverage reaches an impressive 90%, with the remaining margin representing areas where this implementation is not currently necessary.

RESULTS

Line drawing of a rocketLine drawing of a rocket
  • Significant improvement in the hybrid learning experience
  • Access to a broader range of tools for both teaching and administrative tasks for teachers
  • Fulfi llment of all the institution’s requirements at its various sites
  • Platform versatility to seamlessly work with different ecosystems
  • CCPNA has emerged as the leading English teaching institution in Peru, thanks to its advanced technological facilities

The ViewSonic solution has significantly improved the hybrid teaching experience within the CCPNA educational community.

One notable aspect of the ViewSonic solution is its compatibility with both Android-supported tools and Windows-based applications for delivering classes, as well as integration with the Google Workspace platform. Additionally, the inclusion of myViewBoard software for content creation further enhances the teaching experience.

“ViewSonic was the most suitable solution to meet our needs,” said Salinas. “The fact that other companies offered similar teaching support tools that were only compatible with Android helped us make our decision.”

Salinas further adds that the teacher training process progressed smoothly, as the use of the new equipment proved intuitive, and many teachers already possessed a clear understanding of how to handle technology. This familiarity with the capabilities of the interactive displays made it easier for them to leverage all the features.

The delivery of technology resources began in the fi nal months of the previous year, and the implementation proceeded swiftly, concluding in March 2023. According to Alex Carlos, Regional Sales Manager of ViewSonic in Peru, CCPNA has now become “the best-equipped English educational center in the country, surpassing institutions in both the south and even those operating in Lima or the north of Peru. Moreover, it has emerged as a leading educational institution in terms of technological facilities in the Andean region.”

The CCPNA representative concludes, “For us, it was essential that this experience be extended to all students, not limited to certain classrooms, such as schools or universities. We aimed to create hybrid classrooms equipped with state-of-the-art technology, ensuring that all our students can enjoy a high-quality hybrid learning experience.”

Retail Market Chain Shines with Cost Savings and Contemporary Look of ViewSonic Digital Signage

Retail Market Chain Shines with Cost Savings and Contemporary Look of ViewSonic Digital Signage

CUSTOMER PROFILE

Founded in 1951 by brothers Bernard and Eugene Gelson as an extraordinary grocery shopping experience for discerning consumers, Gelson’s Markets is recognized today as one of the nation’s premier supermarket chains. With stores in neighborhoods throughout Southern California, each location is singularly known as the area’s best market for superior produce, highest quality meat, seafood and deli, an unmatched selection of wine and liquor, and exceptional service.

Canvas LogoCanvas Logo

“Everything on the ViewSonic displays looks better than printed signs. Images and text are crisp and clear and we can also use video. It’s a lot more compelling and eye catching.”


— Yvonne Manganaro, SVP Customer and Team Experience

THE CHALLENGE

line drawing of a circular mazeline drawing of a circular maze
  • Upscale retail market sought to upgrade print signage with a more contemporary alternative that would enable them to change out content more quickly and cost-effectively

Known as “the ultimate foodie paradise,” and a “place to spoil yourself,” by fans on Yelp, Gelson’s is not your average supermarket. Amenities like wine and craft beer bars, gourmet cheese islands, and chef-led prepared food stations distinguish Gelson’s shopping experience. Offering made-fresh daily dishes is clearly an outstanding recipe for customer satisfaction. However, keeping the signage as fresh and up-to-date became a costly and time-consuming burden.

“Many of our departments needed to update their signage on a very regular basis,” said Yvonne Manganaro, SVP Customer and Team Experience. “We realized that we needed to do something different that would allow us to reduce print costs while also bringing a more contemporary look to the stores.”

To find a solution for this dilemma, Manganaro and a coworker from the company’s procurement department traveled to a digital signage trade show in Las Vegas to assess the options.

THE SOLUTION

line drawing of a jigsaw puzzle pieceline drawing of a jigsaw puzzle piece
  • ViewSonic 43-inch CDE4320 professional-grade commercial displays

  • ViewSonic network media players models NMP309-W and NMP589-W with included digital signage software

  • ViewSonic 42-inch EP4220 ePoster

The duo visited a host of booths, talking to reps from many companies. By the time they left the ViewSonic booth, Manganaro was convinced that they had found their digital signage partner.

“The first thing that we liked about ViewSonic was that they’re based in California, close enough for us to easily visit their showroom,” she said. “Along with that, and probably the primary deciding factor, was the free software that is included with their digital signage solutions.”

While not as feature-packed as some of the available software, said Manganaro, the ViewSonic software had everything they needed to meet their retail signage needs.

“The more robust software usually has monthly or annual subscription fees and that would have added a lot of cost to each unit,” she said. “We loved that the ViewSonic program was included and very functional for what we needed.”

Manganaro was sold on the ViewSonic solution, which included vibrant ViewSonic® 43-inch CDE4320 professional-grade commercial displays and ViewSonic network media players (models NMP309-W and NMP589-W) with included Signage Manager software. Gelson’s began installing the ViewSonic digital signage throughout their stores, for what has amounted to a total of 16 ViewSonic CDE4320 displays (plus one EP4220 ePoster) in each of 27 stores over the past 10 years.

THE RESULTS

Line drawing of a rocketLine drawing of a rocket
  • Return on investment was achieved across all departments in under a year

  • Department managers can now update content as often as needed

  • Digital signage and ePosters deliver a more modern, upscale look

  • The digital platforms provide vendor partners with message showcase opportunities

  • Customer satisfaction increased, with compelling content to view while waiting for service

Take one look and it’s clear that the digital screens deliver a more modern look than printed signage, easily meeting Manganaro’s first goal.

“Everything on the ViewSonic displays looks better than printed signs. Images and text are crisp and clear and we can also use video,” she said. “It’s a lot more compelling and eye catching.”

What’s more, department managers can update content in a fraction of the time it took when the stores relied on printed signs.

“The ViewSonic digital signage gives us a lot more flexibility,” said Manganaro. “There were times in the past when budget wouldn’t allow us to update a menu because it was going to cost a couple thousand dollars to change out signs. Now that’s not even a factor; we can change content whenever department owners want to.”

The convenience and good looks of the ViewSonic digital signage came with another outstanding benefit – substantial cost savings.

“We calculated the ROI before we purchased the displays,” said Manganaro. “For our departments that had the most variability in menu and ingredient content it took about 10 months to break even. A few took a bit longer, but not much.”

As the Gelson’s business continued to grow and add departments, increasing the number of screens to manage with the ViewSonic software, Manganaro acknowledged that they did encounter a constraint in the free software.

“The ViewSonic software has a limit of 50 screens on one set up, but because it’s so wonderfully straightforward and easy to work with our IT team was able to create a work around,” she said. “They created channels of content for departments – one for meat and seafood, one for the front desk, and so on.”

This, she added, makes it easy for their designer to create content, then copy and paste as needed, and finally upload quickly to multiple units. Content is then scheduled through the software, another basic yet critical feature, according to Manganaro.

“The ability to schedule is key,” she said. “I can’t imagine trying to have a designer physically at a computer at 6 am before we open or right when our ad breaks, or on Friday when suddenly there’s something new to communicate in the produce department.”

After nearly 10 years of using the ViewSonic CDE displays and software, Manganaro says that the most beautiful thing about the solution is that it ‘just works.’

“We didn’t need or want to pay for bells and whistles; this is a very functional program that does everything we need it to do in a retail environment,” she said. “We looked at a lot of other systems and we’re so glad to be working with ViewSonic. We service hundreds of thousands of customers per week and need to deliver a uniformly good experience – our stores get so busy that the last thing we need to worry about is tech failing.”

In fact, Manganaro confessed, they once installed a digital signage system in a store because of a technology ViewSonic didn’t have at the time, and it has been a headache.

“The downtime at that store has been horrible,” she said. “The ViewSonic system is just so reliable. I don’t have to worry about it and my team doesn’t have to worry about it. It just works.”

As Manganaro and her team became more experienced with the digital signage equipment and its benefi ts, they began looking for a solution to the unwieldly signage in the stores’ entryway.

“We replaced some rather cluttered-looking printed signage with the sleek ViewSonic EP4220 ePoster,” she said. “Now we can display multiple moving images and when visitors walk into the store it delivers an upscale look in line with our brand.”

Beyond saving a substantial amount of time and money, and imparting a contemporary feel, the ViewSonic digital displays have added value to Gelson’s markets in another notable way, said Manganaro – for their partners.

“We are able to do some terrific storytelling and create videos that showcase our amazing partners,” she said. “For example, our director of meat and seafood went on a fishing trip with a vendor and shot a video we used to showcase their sustainable practices and how they bring product to market so quickly.”

Gelson’s partners are thrilled to receive this additional visibility and support, she added, and customers are big fans of the content as well.

“While they’re waiting for service customers have something interesting to watch,” she said. “This compelling content helps improve customer satisfaction and informs them about the vendors, products and care that sets us apart from other groceries.”

In every way, working with ViewSonic has been a very positive experience, concluded Manganaro.

“We manage well over 300 screens in our chain, and when there’s a problem it’s virtually always because one of our team members accidentally bumped a media player, unplugged something, or broke an antenna,” she said. “It’s rarely a problem with the ViewSonic solutions.”

Custom Motocross Gear Company Creates High-Impact Dealer Sales Kit with ViewSonic ePoster Interactive Kiosk

CUSTOMER PROFILE

Founded in 2015 by former professional supercross racer Michael Leib, Canvas MX is a motocross gear manufacturer that specializes in completely customizable kits and other apparel. The first MX gear company to offer the clean look of blank black and white gear, Canvas MX evolved into its current bespoke design focus, offering a wide range of customization lines through its 3D design portal at canvasmx.com.

“It showcases our 3D design portal beautifully, and I love how you just can’t miss the ViewSonic kiosk in a store. It’s big, clean, modern and high-quality – a perfect partner for displaying our modern, high-quality product.”


— Michael Leib, Founder of Canvas MX

THE CHALLENGE

line drawing of a circular mazeline drawing of a circular maze
  • Create a dealer sales package that included an interactive kiosk for in-store ordering of customized motocross apparel

After leaving the racing circuit in 2020, pro rider Michael Leib had more time to focus on his business enterprise, Canvas MX, which offers customizable motocross apparel though its 3D website portal. The company fills a unique niche in a business where fans, riders and dealers looking for custom apparel typically wait 18 months for customized apparel shipped from overseas – or settle for off-the-shelf designs.

Until recently, the company’s sole operational focus was on internet sales. By producing its product in the US, Canvas MX was able to deliver items quickly, within three to four weeks. The 3D portal was well-designed and easy to use. With these pieces in place, Leib was ready to expand on the concept.

“We knew that to scale the business we needed a way to take it into the dealerships,” said Leib. “We have an outstanding website customization and ordering interface, so we knew that what we needed was a way to take that interface directly to the dealers.”

In fact, Leib had already discovered the ideal solution during the early days of the business, while Leib was still spending most of his time involved in racing.

“I connected with Mad Moose Media, an on-site event photography company, at a race. They were using ViewSonic kiosks to display photos of race participants,” said Leib. “Riders and fans could scroll through images and order directly from the kiosk. I immediately realized that this was the platform we needed to use when we were ready to move forward with the dealership model.”

THE SOLUTION

line drawing of a jigsaw puzzle pieceline drawing of a jigsaw puzzle piece
  • ViewSonic EP5542T 55-inch Multi-touch Digital ePoster

The slim, freestanding kiosk Leib saw at the photo display was a ViewSonic® EP5542T 55-inch Multi-touch Digital ePoster. He tried one out at a tradeshow, which confirmed his initial reaction to the display.

“It was exactly what we wanted as the centerpiece of our dealer package,” he said. “It’s tall, great-looking, and attention-grabbing, and it was easy to run our website and offer customization right there on demand.”

With this vision in mind, Leib ramped up the company’s manufacturing capabilities in the US. When he was satisfi ed that he could meet dealer demand, he created the Canvas MX Dealer Kit, which includes a 55-inch ViewSonic ePoster kiosk, a mannequin, and 50 sets of dealer-specific
gear fit kits.

THE RESULTS

Line drawing of a rocketLine drawing of a rocket
  • The large, vibrant kiosk delivers an eye-catching showcase for dealers

  • Customers can easily create and order custom apparel using the smooth touchscreen interface

The Canvas MX Dealer Kit enables motorcycle dealers to easily offer custom gear and apparel in a way that conserves floor space and cash flow. Importantly, it also enables dealers to incorporate their own brand on the gear.

“It’s everything we need to deliver for our dealer partners,” said Leib. “This package lets them offer their own branded apparel without taking up tons of floor space, or tying up cash flow while waiting months and months for delivery of the product.”

Offered for a set base price, with no ongoing costs, the Canvas MX Dealer Kit revolutionizes the way gear is purchased in store, said Leib.

“Now customers can order custom motocross gear directly from their dealership,” he said. “Our Fit Kit is really cool because it allows people to touch and feel and try on the products as they’re designing their own custom gear on our ViewSonic kiosk.”

In an industry where motorcycle dealers that want to carry apparel typically must commit to buying upwards of 100,000 pieces then wait many months for delivery, this model is indeed ground breaking. The ViewSonic kiosk, said Leib, was central to making it happen.

“It showcases our 3D design portal beautifully, and I love how you just can’t miss the ViewSonic kiosk in a store,” said Leib. “It’s big, clean, modern and high-quality – a perfect partner for displaying our modern, high-quality product.”

Among the excellent features, he added, are the vibrant colors, crisp graphics, and smooth touchscreen response.

“The ViewSonic kiosk enabled us to provide dealers with an amazing display,” said Leib. “It has enabled us expand into new markets and to do it in a way that fully meets dealer needs for a great-looking showcase.”

ViewSonic Named as One of the Best Places to Work in Orange County 2023

Group photo of ViewSonic employeesGroup photo of ViewSonic employees

For Third Consecutive Year, ViewSonic Listed as a Best Place to Work

Brea, CA (July 3, 2023)ViewSonic Corp., a leading global provider of visual solutions, announced that it was recently named as one of the 2023 Best Places to Work in Orange County. The awards program was created in 2009 and is a project of the Orange County Business Journal in partnership with Workforce Research Group.

 

This county-wide survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize, and honor the best places of employment in Orange County, CA, benefiting the county’s economy, its workforce, and businesses.

 

“We are incredibly proud that ViewSonic was named as one of the best places to work in 2023, making it the third year that we’ve received this honor,” said Jeff Volpe, president of ViewSonic Corp. “ViewSonic is nothing without its employees, and we continue to  promote positivity and innovation as we grow and evolve. The fact that we’ve been named to this list three years in a row shows that everyone in the company has the same mindset in making ViewSonic an amazing company, for consumers, partners, and employees.”

 

To be considered for participation, employers had to fulfill the following eligibility requirements:

  • Have at least 15 full-or part-time permanent employees working in Orange County
  • Have a physical operation in Orange County
  • Be a publicly or privately held organization
  • Be a for-profit, not-for-profit, or a government organization
  • Have been in business for at least one year, at the program registration deadline

 

Organizations from across the county entered the two-part process to determine the Best Places to Work in Orange County. The first part consisted of evaluating each employer’s workplace policies, practices, and demographics. This part of the process was worth approximately 20 percent of the total evaluation.

ViewSonic Launches World’s First “Designed for Xbox” X2-4K LED Projector

The Short-Throw X2-4K LED Projector Brings the Best Gaming Experience to Xbox Gamers

 

Brea, CA – INFOCOMM 2023 Booth #1614 – (June 15, 2023) ViewSonic Corp., a leading global provider of visual solutions, introduces the X2-4K LED Projector for Xbox. World’s first “Certified for Xbox” projector, it projects the largest certified Xbox gaming experience of any device on the market and does so at a native 120Hz refresh. It can deliver native 1440p resolution at a 120 Hz refresh rate experience from either of the Xbox Series X|S consoles.

Other features include native 4K @ 60hz Ultra HD output, made possible by a larger DMD and TI XPR technology. Built-in Harman Kardon speakers provide an exciting, immersive audio experience.

In developing the X2-4K short-throw LED projector, ViewSonic partnered with Microsoft to deliver the best gaming experience to the Xbox community. The Xbox Series X|S consoles can use HDMI Consumer Electronics Control [CEC] to send commands to and from CEC-enabled devices. CEC allows the user to operate, via controller and from the comfort of their couch, the X2-4K power on/off, and volume. This works on any of the current gaming consoles with HDMI and CEC functionality and is certified CEC compatible by the team at Xbox.

“The X2-4K projector was developed to be considered a true gaming projector,” said Mia Shen, Sr. Business Line Manager at ViewSonic. “It went through 63 tests conducted by Team Xbox to ensure ultimate console compatibility and is designated as the world’s first ‘Designed for Xbox’ certified projector.”

X2-4K’s native 4K @ 60Hz output and high brightness leads to a breathtaking 4K streaming experience. Xbox Series console owners can expect a great streaming experience when pairing their consoles with the X2-4K. The projector can output 1080p @ 240Hz with a 4.2ms response time for the fastest possible player reaction times for the PC gaming audience. It also features an Auto Low Latency Mode [ALLM] that allows users to choose an “Ultra-Fast Input with 1/10th of the delay compared to the average 4K television*.

The projector comes with a short throw lens with an adjustable 0.69-0.83 throw ratio, H/V keystone and 4-corner adjustment capabilities. It has TÜV SÜD's Low Blue Light certification: certified to alleviate concerns of eye damage and discomfort caused by prolonged viewing.

ViewSonic Recognized for Educational Technology Innovation in 2023 EdTech Breakthrough Awards

Prestigious International Awards Program Honors Outstanding Educational Technology Products and Companies

BREA, Calif. – June 8, 2023 – ViewSonic Corp., a leading global provider of visual solutions, today announced that the ViewSonic® ID2456 is the winner of the “Education Hardware Innovation Award” in the 5th annual EdTech Breakthrough Awards program conducted by EdTech Breakthrough, a leading market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies and solutions in the global educational technology market. In 2022, ViewSonic was EdTech Breakthroughs’ “Next-Gen School Solution Provider of the Year.”

The ViewSonic® ID2456 is a multifunctional 24-inch touch display designed to expand learning spaces and boost engagement. The high-performance screen features native 1080p Full HD resolution, with projected capacitive [PCAP] touch and Palm Rejection technologies.

It can be installed to be used as a podium display to control presentations projected on a big screen or a second monitor in hybrid classrooms. The display offers smooth and responsive touch and works with Microsoft Pen Protocol [MPP2.0] active pens to deliver precision and accuracy when writing or drawing.

The ability to present and manipulate digital documents and materials, combined with the device’s precision touch technology, allows teachers to clearly illustrate and demonstrate concepts in a way that is engaging and easy for students to understand.

The ID2456 also features a sleek form factor with single-cable USB-C connectivity. Its bezel-less display design and five-pound weight makes it simple to transport, and it can easily integrate into existing classroom frameworks. The device also allows for screen mirroring or extending desktops - offering the ability to share content of digital documents - eliminating the need for physical versions.

“We wanted to create something that fits seamlessly into modern classrooms. The ID2456 is actually ideal for remote students, as well, where they may not have access to physical copies of materials. It was important for us to impart flexibility to schools by allowing teachers to adapt to different scenarios and effectively reach all their students,” said Jeff Muto, Business Line Director at ViewSonic. “We’re honored to be awarded the ‘Education Hardware Innovation Award’ from EdTech Breakthrough. We will continue to develop hardware to assist with long-term cost-savings, maximize the use of digital resources and improve access to education - which helps create more equitable learning opportunities.”

The mission of the EdTech Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize the innovation, hard work and success in a range of educational technology categories, including Student Engagement, School Administration, Adaptive Learning, STEM Education, Remote Learning, Career Preparation and many more. This year’s program attracted more than 2,400 nominations from over 16 different countries throughout the world.

“Some subjects rely heavily on visual content such as science, math, and art. Hardware that can help teachers to write or draw with accuracy, makes it easier to present and explain concepts to students. The visual learning experience is important for students even if they are not physically present in the classroom. Companies like ViewSonic are ahead of the curve in bringing forth this technology,” said James Johnson, managing director, EdTech Breakthrough. “From facilitating collaboration to reinforcing concepts through the visual medium, students can easily absorb concepts, no matter where they are with the ViewSonic ID2456. Congratulations to ViewSonic on another EdTech Breakthrough win - this time for the ‘Education Hardware Innovation Award.’”

ViewSonic Direct View LED Display Brings Efficiency, Reliability and Visibility to Career Tech Presentations

CASE STUDY

ViewSonic Direct View LED Display Brings Efficiency, Reliability and Visibility to Career Tech Presentations

CUSTOMER PROFILE

Headquartered in Montgomery, Alabama, Montgomery Public Schools is a large district serving over 30,000 students in 27 preschools, 32 elementary schools, 12 middle schools, and 10 high schools, according to US News & World Report. The Career Tech Department provides career and technical instruction to prepare students for life after high school, whether that may include postsecondary education, employment, or a combination of both.

Montgomery Preparatory Academy LogoMontgomery Preparatory Academy Logo

“[The ViewSonic Direct View LED is] a showstopper. There’s no better word for it than that. When I meet visitors at the front office, which is maybe 105 feet from the display wall, I always get astonished comments. It’s vivid and clear even from there. Even the students stop and talk about how amazing it is.”


— Auburn Brown, Career Tech Bookkeeper

THE CHALLENGE

line drawing of a circular mazeline drawing of a circular maze
  • Install a reliable and efficient video wall that could handle high-volume use and be visible throughout a large presentation space

The Montgomery Preparatory Academy for Career Technologies (MPACT), the career tech building for the district, is a hub of activity, where students, staff, trainers, and recruiters frequently gather to attend and deliver presentations.

“We host countless seminars, training, PD, and recruitment presentations every month,” said Career Tech Director Todd Davis. “The process for facilitating these activities was very cumbersome. We had to go to another building across town to get a projector, screen and sound board, set them up, then quickly return it all so that it was available for other users.”

Not only was this incredibly inefficient, but with larger meetings and presentations not everyone could see the screen from the back of the room, added Davis.

Inspiration hit as it often does, when one least expects it.

“I was out to dinner during my daughter’s national volleyball tournament and saw what I thought would be the ideal solution,” said Davis. “It was a bunch of TVs put together into a screen so big you could just about see it from another state.”

Davis immediately sent a photo of the image to the CTE team’s Bookkeeper Auburn Brown whose responsibilities include sourcing and purchasing technology to support the district’s dozens of CTE instructors.

“I take care of around 80 teachers and two education specialists,” said Brown. “So when my boss texted me a photo of a huge video screen and said ‘I want this for our commons area,’ I started doing the research right away.”

THE SOLUTION

  • ViewSonic LD135-151 - 135” Direct View LED Display, 1920 x 1080 Resolution, 600-nit Brightness, 24/7

The large display that sparked Brown’s interest was a traditional video wall created by lining up several TV-like monitors into a grid. Not realizing there would be an alternative, Brown initially assumed that this was the format they would use.

“As I researched manufacturers, I made sure to look at ViewSonic because we use their 65-inch ViewBoard interactive displays here at Career Tech and the district has purchased many of them as well,” said Brown. “I had no idea that there was an option like their Direct View LED displays, which are huge and give a much cleaner look than the other video walls.”

Brown narrowed the options to a few brands and sought advice and pricing from their rep at reseller partner InCare. When she saw the price of the ViewSonic® Direct View LED display she was thrilled.

“I expected it to be more expensive than the video walls that didn’t look as good,” she said. “Going with the ViewSonic Direct View LED just made sense based on my research. It was bigger, had no lines breaking it up, and it was an easier to manage all-in-one solution.”

She took her recommendation that they purchase a 135” ViewSonic Direct View LED display to Davis.

“Auburn said to me, ‘I think we can do a whole lot better than a bunch of TVs lined up together,’” said Davis. “When I saw the ViewSonic display, I absolutely agreed.”

THE RESULTS

  • Added efficiency saves staff time and resources

  • Audience members have clear visibility from anywhere in the room

  • Presentations are clear and crisp, with no bezels to distract attention or break up content

Installed in the center’s commons area, which can seat up to 100 people, the ViewSonic Direct View LED has been a big hit. After over a year of use, Brown and Davis can confidently say that the eye-catching display has exceeded their initial hopes for the presentation space – from its visual appeal to its functional benefits.

“It’s a showstopper,” said Brown. “There’s no better word for it than that. When I meet visitors at the front office, which is maybe 105 feet from the display wall, I always get astonished comments. It’s vivid and clear even from there. Even the students stop and talk about how amazing it is.”

When it comes down to utility, the ViewSonic Direct View Display has more than served its initial purpose.

“It has saved Todd a lot of time, not having to go to the downtown central office to sign equipment in and out every time we have a presentation,” said Brown. “I love it because no one has to hassle with it, it just works and looks amazing.”

Now, presentations of all kinds are reliably crisp, clear, and large enough for everyone in the room to get a good view, no matter where they’re seated.

“We use it year, round, even in the summer,” said Brown. “Presenters include trainers from the State Department of Education, military recruiters, our CTE instructors, and more. And if there are no meetings scheduled and no announcements that we need to run, we’ll put up music, football games or other content that the students and staff enjoy when passing by.”

Everyone is so happy with the display, in fact, that as of this writing, Brown was working on a purchase order to obtain one for their sister center, a magnet high school that focuses on career tech education.

“The advertising design teacher there fell in love with it and convinced us to get one for his school,” said Brown. “They’re going to install it in their ‘Crossroads,’ an intersection of two long hallways that pretty much every student walks through during the day, and run Career Tech announcements and other information.”
