Grenoble, May 26th, 2020 – Digital Signage supports return of workforce to proper workplaces.

Does your management plan to have your workforce returning onsite?
And do you think about how to best communicate new and/or changed policies to your employees?
… how to behave in-house areas
… where to find disinfection materials
… how to show new or changed layout of office/work areas
… what is allowed and what is not allowed
… how to conduct on-site meetings
… etc.

Using Digital Signage technology, you will ease the communication to your workforce:

  1. Update your communication on the fly, from any browser, at ZERO cost.
  2. Virtualize changed floor layouts and use animated signposting to enforce new distance rules using preconfigured templates.
  3. Use graphics and video tutorials to demonstrate how to behave, how to perform new disinfection procedures.
  4. Communicate fast: Screens will show updated content within seconds, if needed.
  5. Communicate effectively: The use of digital screens showing variable (moving) content will grab the attention of your audience. It draws significantly more eyeballs compared to conventional (paper) signage.

Grenoble, April 22nd, 2020 – Business Update from Piksel Digital Signage Group.

In this difficult period, we’d like to use the opportunity to encourage our customers, our suppliers and other business partners to stay focussed and to remain optimistic for the time to come. If we are all following the rules, staying apart and letting the recommended hygiene measures become routine, we will overcome this crisis and will get back to a ‘reasonable normality’, eventually. And we have not to forget that this is not a sprint, but rather a marathon!

Support Team message

The Piksel eMotion support team currently consists of 4 heads, all working from home to help not just our Digital Signage customers and users, but also help to not spread the Corona virus further due to unnecessary contacts.
We notice that Digital Signage for internal communication is now predominantly used to advise employees on how to behave and to proclaim the employers updated code of conducts and the dos and don’ts.
You will reach the Piksel eMotion support team at support-ds(at)piksel.com or at +33 4 58 00 36 90.

New features for June release

Despite the situation, we are continuing the further development of Piksel eMotion and plan the next feature release in June. The most interesting items to come, from a user’s perspective:

  • Countdown and Chronometer objects allowed to be used in slides, so clients can now for example automatically publish a message like “Today we’ve reached XX days without accident, thank you all for following the safety measures!”
  • Room booking module will now synch with MS Exchange for our SaaS clients, allowing automated updates right after entries/changes in MS Outlook for example
  • Content of the day feature allows to publish a new entertaining message automatically every day, helping the editors to focus on their core messages and not spending too much time on curating the accompanying messages
  • Feed blacklisting capability allows to filter any feed to avoid unwanted messaging to the audience

We will release more details on this very next release shortly.

Tips and tricks for the daily work with Piksel eMotion

With the use of broadcast conditions you can publish content depending on the weather forecast.
For example, if today’s forecast expects rain in the afternoon, you can remind your viewers not to forget their umbrellas or even advertise umbrellas that you are selling.

Grenoble, March 20th, 2020 – Crisis Communication using Piksel Digital Signage.

The outbreak of the Corona virus end of 2019 certainly has changed the world. Nothing is like before for us here in Europe as the physical contact from human to human has to be avoided as much as possible. As a result, public life has stopped. Bars, restaurants, shops, sports clubs etc. remain closed, shows and events are cancelled and work life is shifted to the home of the employees, where ever possible.

For an employer it now becomes even more important to keep up the communication path with both, the present and even more the remote workforce. As conventional Digital Signage for internal communication is still effective for the once that hold presence at their regular workplace, it will lose its effectiveness for employees not being present at work campuses. Our Digital Signage solution Piksel eMotion does offer the ability to convert your entire broadcast channel into a so-called WebTV. The viewer will just need to receive a link, which he/she then can view in a browser of any connected device, like laptop, mobile phone or tablet.

This LINK is a brief example of such a WebTV channel. The content has been built with Piksel eMotion. Instead of assigning the channel to a regular player that would use a TV screen or professional signage monitor for the broadcast, the channel will be assigned to a WebTV device, which has been set-up beforehand with just a few clicks.

If you want to learn more about the use of Piksel eMotion especially for crisis communication, please contact us at emotion@piksel.com or call us. You’ll find the appropriate phone number here, depending on your location.

Keep distance and stay healthy!
Your Piksel team.

Grenoble, December 11, 2019 – Piksel eMotion powers MAG.tv for LE FIL ROUGE.

MAG.tv is an innovative and unprecedented project initiated by the association LE FIL ROUGE and several other organizations caring about impaired people.

The association LE FIL ROUGE was founded in 2017 and is located in the department of Isère in the southeast of France. It continues the audio-visual activities of the association REPÉRAGES AUDIOVISUEL, established more than 20 years ago.

The association is helping to improve knowledge and understanding of our actual world and society by supporting creativity and expression. It is producing documentaries or movies for institutional communication and participates in the development of citizenship, critical thinking, social connection and humanistic values.

“Piksel is proud in supporting the ambitious MAG.tv project by providing its Digital Signage solution Piksel eMotion to LE FIL ROUGE.” comments Jean-Paul Rizzi, Deployment and After Sales Service Manager at Piksel. “Screens will be installed where impaired people work and live, content broadcast and operation can be centrally and/or locally controlled, depending on the actual needs.”

And Michel Szempruch, creative director of LE FIL ROUGE adds: “MAG.tv engages people with disabilities all year round according to their level and capacity, showcasing their production directly on the interconnected screen network. It sets them in motion in their environment with objectives of socialization, cognitive maintenance, expression, citizenship, learning and acquisition of skills and dietetics. It gathers people’s work from multiple institutions. MAG.tv broadcasts continuously on screens installed in the living areas (lobby, cafeteria entrance, staff room, etc.) and it’s a tool to enlight these places. It is accessible directly by the residents of the facilities or the visitors.”

LE FIL ROUGE selected Piksel because of its long-lasting experience as Digital Signage market key player. Piksel eMotion is a cloud based, fully web-controlled solution, capable of supporting the broadcast of high-quality content in different formats and styles (images, videos, slides, feeds etc).

The strength of Piksel eMotion is its ease of use, its flexibility and the possibility to automate the integration of social platforms’ content, news feeds, traffic and more, enabling the customer to create a 360-degree TV channel with a modern look and feel.

Grenoble, September 10, 2019 – Piksel is constantly aimed at providing their customers with latest features the industry has to offer combined with the best possible user experience.

Video Cut: With the September release the user can now select a defined portion of the video for his broadcast. This avoids the additional step of pre-cutting the video to the desired timestamps beforehand. Yet, the video will be fully uploaded to and will remain fully available in the Media Library in case of changes required afterwards.

QR Code: The console now offers a QR code generator. Using this function, the user can simply enter a URL and a corresponding QR code can be broadcasted, which then can link to a place providing more detailed information to the viewing audience.

Conditional content broadcasting: This new function allows to set specific operating conditions to a media, not only according to the date, the week day, the time, but also depending on weather conditions and temperatures.

Further to this, the console now also supports German as an additional language.
In addition to the use of Internet Explorer®, also Chrome can now be optionally used to display webpages.
