And there it is. Here is a better view of it, but this picture shows some people standing around looking at it. The signage will be updated and changed every month with new pictures and information. Should be there for years to come. Proud to have been a part of this project to give back to my own community at Msft.

Since October, I’ve been involved in a project at work for creating a Wall of Honor at Microsoft for Veterans Day. Creating these video displays seems to be a standard thing these days as more and more companies, councils, and museums are adding them. A small group within my building works on digital signage and I got to help build the PC systems used to make the displays.

Electronic school signs: Electronic wall for schools

Schools like other businesses need to be highlighted. And there are justified reasons for these educational institutions using LED boards to get highlighted. They need attention to alert drivers about their presence. Also they need attention to welcome parents and children.

Electronic school signs use LED lights. They are made with lights but they consume little electricity. What is more important about these lights is they can be changed. A user can change the writing on the LED wall using Wi-Fi, fiber optic or Ethernet cable. There would be no hassle in changing the writing on the board. The service provider would make sure that the user faces no problem.

How much would an LED board cost? It depends upon the size and functionality of the unit. And design also plays a crucial role in determining price of a unit. A poorly designed unit might be cheap but it won’t be helpful in the long run. The signboard should be visible from a distance and one should be able to read everything written on the board even in dull light.

There is a reason behind using LED walls. This unit remains functional in all conditions. It is able to withstand rough weather conditions for long time. Whether it is day or night, it keeps working. And since it can be customized to suit individual needs, one can get the light that suits to its needs perfectly.

A school is a business and like other businesses it would also want to get decorated with matching accessories. Signboard is an accessory. It is way to show name, brand and address. Also it is a way to communicate with people. Electronic school signs provide a unique way to communicate with parents and children.

An education institution that is going to host a great function could convey the message to all with the help of its LED signboard. Similarly schools can find uses of electronic school signs. Since the writings on the LED wall could be changed in a hassle free manner, institutions can start communicating with people from their signboards.

Electronic school signs have changed the way, schools used to further their business interests. These signboards have replaced the regular notice boards that people used to visit to know more about schools. Now schools can take care of their marketing and communication with the help of LED walls. They can write anything and rewrite sentences on LED board in a hassle free manner.

Eloise Claire provides best electronic school signs to businesses. The signs are used to prevent staff and clients from hazards. It is mandatory for businesses to install signage to keep people away from high risk zones.

Santander Bank installs multi-screen Video Wall Signage Solution

(PRWEB) April 09, 2015

Established in Chile since 1978, now with over 250 branches throughout the country, Bank of Santander is a leading financial institution, by virtue of its market share and its capital strength and profitability.

 

Constantly trying to position itself as a major player in the Chilean banking industry as a leading bank in Latin America, Bank of Santander strives to be recognized as a quality and efficient service provider to effectively meet the requirements of the shareholders, customers, employees and the society as a whole.

 

Given this situation, the need for a solution at its headquarters that allows flexible and dynamic monitoring of all the daily transactions occurring in all the branches of the country, is even more evident. Bank of Santander Chile identified the specific need to innovate and optimize its monitoring room by installing a Video Wall solution, for visualizing the Bank’s flow of activity in a holistic and comprehensive manner throughout the country.

 

Wavetec developed a customized video wall signage solution at Bank’s central monitoring room which comprised of a 16 professional high-definition displays ready to operate 24/7. The video wall is connected to a video processor that can connect up to 32 video inputs at once. Due to the installed Video Wall, it is possible for banks management to proactively monitor activities at various branches for appropriate decision-making and service optimization.

 

Moreover, it prioritizes and focuses on certain information depending on the day or month, interspersing the order and/or the grouping of the displays. The Video Wall can screen some of the following variables: payment and transfers status, payrolls, server status throughout Chile, ATMs, system errors, Redbank status, etc.

 

Santander is truly committed to innovation. Previously, the bank had an outdated and rigid monitoring system, which was a limiting factor for monitoring what was needed; thus, it was decided to step forward and install Wavetec’s Video Wall solution for a more focused, flexible and adjustable monitoring in order to meet the specific and emergent requests, prioritizing the priority of the moment.

 

Wavetec is a leading global company in the domain of LED Display Solutions for financial markets. This can be seen in the successful LED display installations and system integrations in over 23 stock exchanges such as Barcelona, Chile, Peru, Qatar, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Dubai, Nigeria and Kenya, among others. Possessing expertise and technology, Wavetec stands at the forefront of digital signage for a wide range of industries such as banking, retail, mining, etc.

Social Media Outperforms Wall Street at Predicting Earnings Surprises?

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) April 01, 2014

Researchers from three prestigious schools – Georgia Institute of Technology, Purdue University, and City University of Hong Kong – have released what they believe is the first study proving the ability of social media to predict future stock returns and earnings surprises. Forthcoming in the April 2014 issue of The Review of Financial Studies, the study, “Wisdom of Crowds: The Value of Stock Opinions Transmitted through Social Media,” examines data from 2005-2012 available on social investing site Seeking Alpha and compares it to market data for that period.

Citing the study’s conclusion that peer opinions published online reliably predict positive or negative stock returns anywhere from one month to three years in advance, Associate Professor at Georgia Institute of Technology, Yu Jeffrey Hu, states, “Traditionally the domain of professional forecasters, financial analysis is increasingly being performed and broadcast by investors themselves.”

The study’s researchers performed textual analysis of more than seven years’ worth of material posted to the web site Seeking Alpha. Seeking Alpha is a crowd-sourced investing site that allows contributors to publish research and ideas, which the community of users then peer-reviews.

The data included more than 97,000 articles and 459,679 comments. Articles were written by 6,500 authors and covered over 7,000 stocks. When compared to market data and articles from Dow Jones, analysis showed:

●    Articles on stock investing and community comments on the Seeking Alpha site predict stock returns over every time-frame examined: three months, six months, one year and three years.

●    This was not true of previous studies of the predictive value of short chatter messages posted on Internet message boards, which demonstrated no predictive value.

●    Unlike previous sell-side research showing that financial analyst opinions are quickly incorporated into the market price, this study finds that the value relevant information on Seeking Alpha site affects the market price at a slower pace.

●    The Seeking Alpha user community successfully identified the predictive value of authors in real time.

     ●     When the community disagreed with authors, their opinions had predictive value

     ●     Authors who were historically accurate met with less or no community disagreement.

●    Community sentiment – either positive or negative – was more accurate in predicting future stock prices and earnings surprises than Seeking Alpha articles alone, sell-side analysis, or similar content from Dow Jones.

●    Previewing the results, the Wall Street Journal wrote, “Seeking Alpha predicted stock returns and earnings surprises above and beyond Wall Street analyst reports and financial news articles.”

Hu and his fellow researchers concluded, “The predictability holds even after controlling for the effect of traditional advice sources, such as financial analysts and newspaper articles. Together, our findings point to the usefulness of peer-based advice in financial markets.”

“Social media outlets are unique in the sense that they enable direct and immediate interactions among users. These interactions, combined with the seeming intelligence of the ‘crowd,’ may be one of the primary reasons social media platforms are able to produce value-relevant content that is incremental to that revealed through traditional news channels,” said Hu.

Professor Hu worked on this independent study with Hailiang Chen of City University of Hong Kong, Prabuddha De and Byoung-Hyoun Hwang of Purdue University. The study was conducted independently from Seeking Alpha.
