Featured Project: Mvix Digital Signage Enhances Communication at YMCA of the Rockies
The Mvix allows programming of the content remotely and in advance, and it allows multi-user access.
Sterling, Virginia-based Mvix, which makes digital signage, video walls and interactive displays, announces that it was selected by the YMCA of the Rockies, a Colorado-based network of conference centers that hosts more than 300,000 visitors annually, to power their digital signage network.
The network spans some 13 buildings across two campuses: one at Estes Park, on the east side of Rocky Mountain National Park, and the Snow Mountain Ranch, located about 130 miles away near Winter Park.
Previously, the conference centers used USB drives with PowerPoint presentations for communication. That system had limits: displays were difficult to update and looked unprofessional; and the USB drives limited the type of content displayed-for example, no branded YouTube channels or automated event listings. The YMCA of the Rockies wanted a solution that would allow for easily updated multimedia content that could be programmed remotely. The system also needed to support multi-user access.
The solution was a network of digital signage displays powered by the Mvix platform. It offers remote management and integration with content apps such as YouTube,
real-time weather, automated event listings, emergency alerts and other infotainment options. The platform also offers advanced scheduling and the multi-user access that was needed to enable collaboration between staff at the two locations.
As a result of the new network, YMCA staff says they’ve noticed increased inquiries regarding their events and activities and improved enrollment in programs they offer.
“Communicating with our visitors across many spaces can be difficult,” says Mary Ann Degginger, program director at Snow Mountain Ranch. “The Mvix signage solution has solved this problem and given us everything we’ve wanted from it very easily. It’s been great for managing our branding in the centers.”
