Simplicity embodied: Visionect’s Place & Play devices

Visionect, 30 Aug 2023

In the realm of modern technology, simplicity is the ultimate sophistication. Visionect’s Place & Play devices are a testament to this belief. By combining convenience and functionality at the highest level, these devices stand as a stellar example of user-friendly design, redefining what can be achieved with digital signage.

Today we’re going to take a closer look at what makes Place & Play devices so beautifully simple yet so powerful.

Simplicity starts with excellent design

Visionect’s Place & Play devices emphasize simplicity at every step of the way – from installation to integration.

Hassle-free setup and maintenance

First impressions are key. That’s why our devices kick things off with a cable-free setup that removes the frustrations of elaborate installations and wiring needs. No more drilling holes or wrestling with tangled cables. Our magnetic mounts ensure effortless installation on most indoor surfaces, maintaining a sleek and clutter-free environment. The setup process is as simple as it’s quick.

Place & Play’s convenience doesn’t end here. Our devices boast exceptional energy efficiency, running for months on a single charge. This battery longevity not only minimizes the need for frequent maintenance but also gives you more flexibility when deciding where you want to use the device.

Long-lasting peak performance 

We believe that longevity and robustness translate to simplicity. After all, devices that you don’t have to worry about make life simpler. 

Unlike traditional LCDs that require frequent refreshes, Place & Play displays showcase content while staying dormant. They become active only briefly when updating the display. This dormancy translates to a very long lifespan, marked by an ultra-low failure rate.

Moreover, electronic ink displays exhibit remarkable endurance even in extreme conditions. Operating flawlessly in temperatures ranging from 32°F to 122°F (0°C to +50°C), these devices are built to perform reliably regardless of the environment. This resilience makes them an ideal choice for a wide array of settings.

Simply readable

The frustrating glare from traditional screens can make a display unreadable and useless. With Place & Play displays, such annoyances become a thing of the past. Our devices reflect ambient light just like paper, resulting in a glare-free experience and improved screen readability in any environment. 

Integrates with your content management system (CMS)

Once you set up your Place & Play devices you can integrate them with any web-based CMS, ensuring a cohesive content management experience. Nevertheless, we highly recommend utilizing the dedicated CMS provided by Place & Play, scheduled for launch this fall. 

Intuitive and capable software for effortless management

Combining hardware with purpose-built software is the easiest way of streamlining processes and achieving desired results. That’s why Visionect is offering an all-in-one solution for integrated e-paper device management and content management. It’s a combination of our Software Suite and CMS.

Simplicity and versatility result in a variety of use cases

Their ease of installation, maintenance, and management make them a great fit for all kinds of jobs. To list only a few examples:

Whether in an office building or at an airport like Schiphol, Place & Play devices help people find their way around. They can be set up or moved to a different spot without drilling or wiring and are therefore ideal displays to simplify visitors’ lives.

Using Place & Play devices as shelf labels is a testament to how easy it is to install them. Retailers can get smart labels without any drilling or wires. It enables them to tailor the content to their customers and even trigger promotions based on real-time events.
