On the road again – Las Vegas we are coming!

Las Vegas Digital Signage Expo

It’s more than just a trade show in the United States, it is an exciting event in the gamblers capital Las Vegas, where not only the event location stands out more than any comparable event in Germany. Clocks here just tick a little different, especially concerning the preparations and organization of such an event.

We are used to assign our trusted booth builder with the construction or arrive with our own belongings to undertake the set-up of our booth ourselves, but on the other side of the world we have to obey accurate restrictions. Every operation in the preparation phase is carried out by partner companies of the event organizer. There is no way around it! Leaving no room for any provider or service comparisons. Even screwing something together or setting anything up is strictly forbidden and everything is considered a service that needs to be booked and payed for. The only permitted exception: small details, which can be done without any help by one person only. Even if you forget to tick the box “Labour” on the purchase order form for electricity, service or other utensils for your booth, you will be charged with a set fee for the work on your booth through the provider. No matter if you make use of it or not (… and ABBA sings “Money, Money, Money” in the background).

Since our second name is “German Quality”, we can’t help it, but do things our own way. Thanks to our efficient booth, which can be built up without any screws or nails by just one person in a matter of less than 10 minutes.

Wir bauen selber auf: Unser Stand nimmt Form an. Noch etwas zerknittert, am nächsten Tag zum Start der Messe aber schön ebenmäßig!

Hands on: our booth is taking shape. Still a bit wrinkly, but it will be sleek in time for the beginning of the trade show on the next day.

But, setting up the booth really only is the final touch after all the preparations and the whole organization in Germany. Everyone who ever organized a trade show will frankly agree. Attempting to achieve this task from a distance of about 9.000 km and with a 9 hour time difference made it tricky for uns from time to time. And when the departure day arrives, we better have everything we need in our suitcases as there is no rushing back later and picking up brochures we forgot.

So we are currently working hard to finish up and to get ready for our second appearance at the Digital Signage Expo in two weeks. Not to mention our growing excitement for a week full of sparkling glamour, spraying water fountains, bright sunshine and most of all meeting interesting people from all over the world.

See you in two weeks, Las Vegas!

Dear Valued viewneo Customer,

Last week, our Android mobile app was blocked from the Google Play store due to non-compliance with newly adopted policies for the Google Play Developer Distribution Agreement and Privacy Policy for malware. This was largely due to the our most recent feature updates that were customer-driven and deemed very important to a professional digital signage experience.

For example:

1. “Kiosk mode” disables the ability to exit a playlist once it begins. The device owner must enter a unique key code to exit the playlist. This features was designed specifically to prevent in-store customers or non-device owner from pausing, exiting, or otherwise interrupting a playlist.

2 . The current viewneo Player App completes software updates in the background once available. Avoiding onscreen notifications and the need for users to manually confirm and complete software updates has been a very important product feature.

We apologize for any inconvenience you may be currently experiencing. Our team is working as fast as possible to urgently produce an updated version of our Android app that complies with all of the new Google Play store developer policies.

Please use the link below to access a manual installation of the viewneo Player App as well as instructions. Should you have additional questions, please feel free contact us at any time.
