Reception Video Software – Pimlico Plumbing

{

The software operates in two parts, the frontend which the visitor can see and interact with, and the CMS (content management system) which allows the Pimlico team to update content as and when they desire. All can be accessed locally via the touchscreen or over the network through a web browser from any PC making management of the system possible from anywhere in the building.

We were contacted by well known plumbing firm Pimlico Plumbers based in London regarding an overhaul of dated software for an A/V system located in the reception of their London headquarters. The software displays a selection of videos on a small touchscreen which when selected play on a larger 42″ screen located on the wall in the same room.

The software developed some time ago was no longer representing the high quality Pimlico brand. With this in mind we were asked to develop more modern software as well as replace the touchscreen system but utilise the existing 42″ screen.

When in standby mode (no user input detected) the touchscreen and 42″ screen display a looping slideshow (images chosen via the CMS), when a visitor enters the reception a PIR sensor detects their movement and activates a random video from the list, bringing up the video selection menu on the touchscreen. 30 seconds after the PIR no longer detects movement in the reception or there is no interaction with the display the screens will return to the looping slideshow.

The clean and modern user interface now fits nicely with the Pimlico brand whilst the easy to use CMS backend makes updating content a simple task.
