AEG is one of the leading sports and entertainment presenters in the world. AEG, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Anschutz Company, owns, controls or is affiliated with a collection of companies including over 100 of the world’s preeminent facilities.
AEG Facilities is an elite collection of world-class venues with an unmatched level of resources, experience and talent, including The O2 (the flagship venue), Eventim Apollo, The SSE Arena and MBNA Clipper Boats.
AEG required an efficiently priced Digital Signage Software solution that could manage their complex scheduling requirements for each one of the London singular venues.
In addition, each manager of the venues requested MALER Digital Signage to operate the scheduling and monitoring of each of the networks.
Following an in-depth analysis, MALER Digital Signage drafted a report. There are two main pieces of software responsible for a multi-company, multi-platform digital signage system:
- Fujitsu’s TELentice Enterprise allows us to create venue as independent network, associate specific content to be multi-venue and actually share specific advertising. It is also the tool that generates the booking and material registration as well as the distribution server that talks to each one of the systems. It holds and serves all content and scheduling.
- ‘MALER AEG Scheduling Tool’ is a simple web interface specifically designed by MALER Digital Signage to meet the requirements of each of the venues. It grows along with our customer requirements and provides a full accountability of the scheduling.
Monitoring for the AEG Networks is a bit more complex than other project managed by MALER Digital Signage. Each venue has an independent TELentice Monitor Interface with own system. This tool allows each of the venues complete control and report capabilities of their digital network.
At the same time, the TELentice Splitter re-directs each of the venues monitoring traffic to a main AEG monitor were all the systems report live. Having this tool permits the head AEG Europe IT Department and MALER Digital Signage to monitor all of the venues from a single server location.
