PDG to highlight ruggedized construction, quick installation benefits and all-in-one connectivity solutions for dynamic media and advertising content at Samsung booth
Aurora, Illinois, June 8, 2023 — Palmer Digital Group, a full-service supplier and installer of indoor and outdoor digital kiosks, drive-thru digital menu boards and canopy systems, will tout its latest outdoor display solutions for retail, hospitality and other AV industry verticals at InfoComm next week. The full-service supplier, which also provides site planning and installation services, will introduce a new reduced-footprint Electronic Vehicle (EV) charging solution targeted for businesses and public spaces with limited installation space.
Palmer Digital Group (PDG) will also demonstrate two of its popular outdoor menu board solutions for QSRs and fast casual restaurants. Many PDG menu board structures can be lifted into place by two technicians, removing the need for expensive crane lifts. In addition to providing in-house installation services, PDG works with outside integrators, and their simple integration steps and connections for power and media content offer big benefits for installers.
PDG’s outdoor display solutions can also support dynamic media and advertising for customers interested in deploying digital signage content and/or DOOH campaigns, which PDG will demonstrate on the Samsung booth (1143). PDG integrates Samsung displays into many of its indoor and outdoor kiosk solutions, including all three on display at InfoComm.
“InfoComm attracts a variety of attendees, combining what you might see at smaller shows into one giant extravaganza of AV innovation,” said Chuck Lewis, Vice President Palmer Digital Group. “This show will reinforce the strength of our Samsung partnership to the market, and allow attendees to absorb the sophistication of our outdoor kiosk solutions, which bring structural integrity, sophistication and operational simplicity together to drive new revenue streams and enhance the customer experience. We hope visitors learn why our digital menu boards are installed in more than 4,000 different locations at over 40 major QSR brands, and why our EV charging solutions have gained traction with installers, advertisers and end users.”
New Compact EV Charging Solution
InfoComm marks the debut of PDG’s EV24-1C new all-in-one Electronic Vehicle (EV) charging solution, which integrates Samsung OH24F outdoor display. The OH24F optimizes picture quality for outdoor visibility thanks to its exceptional brightness. While ideal for any public setting, including outdoor retail centers, shopping malls and municipal parking lots, PDG is also seeing an uptick in interest in EV charging solutions from its core QSR and Fast Casual customer base.
“These all-in-one charging kiosks provide a consistent charging experience for electric vehicle drivers while offering business new revenue streams,” said Lewis. “They draw in new clientele that allow restaurants to upsell items as their customers charge their vehicles. Restaurants can also post their menus and promotional content on these displays in their parking lots to entice them into a dining experience.”
The EV24-1C has a much smaller footprint than PDG’s EV55-C model (used with Samsung’s larger OH55A display), which dramatically drops the cost of both the EV kiosk and the installation. The kiosk is flexible, supporting one or two IoTecha 80-amp chargers and one or two OH24F displays. PDG’s 14- and 12-gauge, high-impact steel construction of the supporting structure ensures longevity, and structures can be painted any color to match business or surrounding environments, with options for custom printed decals and kiosk wraps.
Dynamic Digital Menu Boards
PDG will also show its 46-inch QSRDMB146 and 55-inch QSRDMB155 single-display Outdoor Digital Menu Boards (ODMBs), each of which include simple network and electrical connections for dynamic media content and local power, along with shelving for media players and routers.
The QSRDMB146 supports one Samsung 46-inch OH display, and is ideal for use as a pre-sell board early in the customer’s drive-thru journey. The QSRDMB155, with one Samsung 55-inch OH display, represents the smallest form factor for PDG’s range of outdoor digital menu board solutions, which also include larger double- and triple- display models. The larger models invite even more creativity for dynamic media presentation, allowing businesses to creatively arrange, manage, update and monetize menu board content across display panels.
All PDG menu boards are ruggedized and rated to battle the elements, withstanding temperatures of -20f to 122f and wind load ratings up to 140 mph. They are constructed 7-gauge, high-impact steel braces and thick-walled tubing, ensuring years of use.
