AVACK INFO - COMMUNICATIONS

The Avack Info communications system expands in a flexible manner as the requirements increase. It is suitable for the communications needs of both large oil refineries as well as small companies. The solution can be used to present information for visitors in the lobby of the company or next to the doors to conference rooms, to distribute information to employees on production premises, and to provide the desired information to those working in an office via workstations or mobile devices.

The system will be built using the latest technical solutions, such as LED screens, workstations, tablets and smartphones. In this manner, the messages are shared with the principle:

the right information - in the right place - at the right time - in the desired manner

CONTENT PRODUCTION

The content of presentations will be produced in a modern way with a browser interface Web Producer service, and it can be managed with different devices, regardless of time and place. The desired model templates will be created in the system, ensuring that the manner of presenting the content will remain the same in style regardless of the person. The content of one presentation screen can be freely constructed from the desired components, which include an image, text, video, internet page, a part of another system’s database etc. Avack Ltd is able to tailor-make an interface with the customer’s other systems, if this does not exist. 

The presentation screens created will be saved in the desired presentation folders, the user rights of which can be shared with selected communications officers. In this way, different people can produce their own content only for their own folders and material production can be easily divided between several makers, with no-one being over-burdened. A visible presentation consists of the selected folders and the presentation screens saved in them. This presentation will run as a continuous loop on selected presentation terminals. The presentations are completely open to editing without interrupting the presentation. At the moment of saving, a start and finish time will be set for the presentation screens, which ensures that the presentations will always contain current information. Obsolete information will automatically be deleted due to the timing control.

PRESENTATION MANAGEMENT

The Web Producer saves the presentation screens in the chosen folders. The presentation consists of the content of one or several folders. It is possible to compile exactly the kind of presentation you wish on each display terminal by attaching different folders together. The media player (display terminal) searches for changed information within a certain update period from the location specified for it and presents it independently.

DISPLAY SCREENS

The material presented on the display screen is displayed either through the device’s internal processor, as in smartphones and tablets, or as on larger screens, where there is an external media player equipped with a Windows or Linux operating system. In this way, as technology develops, it is possible to change the media player to a more efficient device by still using an acquired display unit. In addition, only a damaged device has to be repaired in a maintenance situation.

MOBILE SOLUTIONS

The presentations in the system can also be shared directly to Android phones and tablets. The information is transferred via 3G, 4G and Wi-Fi connections. It is also possible to produce content easily into the system using any device through the browser interface. Thereby it is possible to keep the desired personnel up to date, depending on the situation. In a crisis situation, for example, this is very important.

EXPANDABILITY

The Avack Info solution can be expanded in an affordable way e.g. through an IP public address system, in which case the media player or workstation cuts off the presentation and its audio channel is used for spoken announcements. This is an affordable way to carry out traditional announcements. The system can also convey different kinds of alerts, in which case the display screens will show the alert message as a picture and at the same time it will be repeated as a voice message. The alert can be produced automatically, from the personnel’s workstations or with mobile devices. In an emergency situation, multichannel communication may save lives if there are visually or hearing-impaired people in the group.
