Place & Play, the 13-inch display that runs on the energy of a cup of coffee
Visionect’s Place & Play 13″ is the first digital sign that brings information to life no matter the location, industry or use case. And it will work for an entire year on the amount of energy it takes to brew a single cup of joe! We’re willing to put our money on it.
For many, it is the most essential of rituals: a strong cup of coffee that sets your wheels in motion. No matter the location, whether at home in the morning or in the office looking through daily reports, while finding your way around the airport or waiting patiently in a waiting room.
Now the same amount of energy it takes to prepare a cup of java can be used to power a real-time digital display – for a whopping 12 months!
Place & Play 13″ is the new digital sign from Visionect, developed on the company’s energy-saving electronic paper technology. The latest in the line of Visionect’s pioneering e-paper solutions, the 13-inch Place & Play is 99% more energy efficient than other displays. The first of the company’s Place & Play family, the sign will work without complex installation or customization, and is operational straight out of the box.
The amount of energy needed to make a single cup of coffee will power Place & Play 13″‘s battery for 12 months before recharging.
Combining display, mounting hardware and built-in signage software in a single commercial device that is completely wire-free, the breakthrough Place & Play brings life to the most demanding surfaces. Installing a real-time display in an elevator or on a glass partition of a busy office is no longer subject to heavy construction works, but is rather a simple matter of placing the display on the wall. Offering paperlike visibility thanks to its 13-inch E Ink® electronic paper screen, Place & Play supports all major content management systems, its open Application Programming Interface (API) making displaying content a simple matter of using a website address.
All this in an eco-friendly way.
Not only is Place & Play’s casing made of aluminum and glass, all fully recyclable materials, the device is by far the greenest, most sustainable display on the market. Place & Play 13″ uses so little energy that a single minute it takes to boil a cup of water provides enougwatt-hoursrs for a whole year’s worth of the sign’s uninterrupted functionality.
We’re so confident in Place & Play 13″’s light energy consumption that we will cover 10 years of device-related electricity costs of each of our Place & Play customers.
