Technician’s Visit to Las Vegas

Our technician's visit to Las Vegas was very productive.  He was able to examine various installations, both mobile and stationary, provide some tips and approve of the work that has been done.

With the training of Hi-Tek's staff on the loading of content now completed, Hi-Tek has completed the loading of various ads/messages to run on the Omni Veil Digital Platform.  This allows Hi-Tek/Omni Veil to provide demonstrations to other prospective sites for Omni Veil installations, as well as to gather metrics to show various brands the reach and effectiveness of advertising on the Omni Veil Digital Platform.

The attached photos were taken by our technician during his visit.  The first photo shows a non-metallic NEMA rated cabinet containing an iSIGN Smart Antenna and modem as installed on emergency vehicles.   The second photo shows a Quality Towing employee working on an installation into one of their vehicles.  The third photo was taken at Quality Towing's shop, taken to attempt to show the size of their operations.  The fourth and final photo is of an installation on a light pole behind the fuel pumps at Morton's Truck Centre, taken from a boom lift truck used so that our technician could inspect their various outdoor installations.  In total, Morton's has five units - one inside the food court and four outside locations.  The other outdoor locations being the front street sign; in the middle of the truck parking lot and the western edge of the parking lot.

‘Live’ at a Las Vegas Truck Stop

Here is an example of the continued growth of the Omni Veil Digital Platform, which is fully powered by iSIGN's patented technology and hardware.

Hi-Tek has, at their own expense, purchased and installed digital signage for a gas station location for the purposes of providing a demonstration of iSIGN's technology in delivering messages to mobile devices along with digital signage. One of our technicians forwarded the below picture from this gas station location that the Hi-Tek/Omni Veil system operates on. Additionally, we included below some examples of the ads that are being delivered to mobile devices as well as displayed on the gas pump digital signage.

In addition to being used for commercial content, the signage will also advertise the Omni Veil Digital Platform at the pumps. Note that this truck stop is affiliated with other truck stop locations across the United States.

Further Update on the Hotel/Casino Chain

Yesterday our senior technician met with staff of Hi-Tek/Omni Veil to review and demonstrate installation procedures (Smart Antenna, PODs, modems, etc.) and connectivity.  This demonstration as well as the resulting Q and A , was fully documented, in writing and by video and photos by their staff.

Our technician walked their staff through a comprehensive, detailed review of our back-end dashboards and demonstrated the procedures for loading ads (note that iSIGN had loaded the samples ads currently in use on the live Omni Veil network).  Again, all of this was fully documented by staff to their stated complete satisfaction.

Today, our technician will be with Hi-Tek for their further meeting with the  hotel/casino chain, to provide input with their ongoing presentations, specifically demonstrating hardware functionality, messaging (both commercial and security), reporting and to provide suggestions for unit placement and installations.

As well, he will be taken to Quality Towing to inspect the installed units to comment upon and provide possible suggestions to improve upon their processes and unit placement for Hi-Tek's next shipment of hardware for emergency vehicles.

Additionally, he will be with Hi-Tek/Omni Veil when they meet with one of the truck stop locations that Hi-Tek anticipates signing on as an Omni Veil Digital Platform site and advertiser.

As always, further updates will be provided as forwarded and approved for release.

Omni Veil Network Update

With the recent installations into emergency vehicles, Hi-Tek reports that they are moving forward with continued discussions and presentations to several prospective brick and mortar host sites for iSIGN's Smart Antenna and POD units. Included in these presentations is a third meeting with one of their targeted hotels/casinos located in Las Vegas, currently scheduled for Monday, December 9.  This discussion would be strictly for an installation into the first Las Vegas location, but could lead to installations throughout their various properties located across the continental United States.

Omni Veil Update

As reported November 18, iSIGN's Senior Technician/Business Development, Systems and Data was in Las Vegas during the later part of last week to discuss Hi-Tek's ongoing needs and requirements from a scaling perspective, as well as their next step requirements for hardware. Hi-Tek reported that the initial installations into emergency vehicles were accomplished without problems or issues.  Further, Hi-Tek stated that the initial Omni Veil vehicular installations would be going live on or about December 5. Additionally, it was agreed that any future needs for technological discussions/conversations would be handled via webinar with all necessary parties, as opposed to having face to face visits.  The desire for webinars is to reduce the costs of gathering all parties into one location that can be difficult to schedule and ensures that meetings can be held on a cost and time efficient and effective basis.
