We’ve never heard of MediaVue Systems LLC (they seem to make ‘cute’ hardware / playback systems though) and further more we don’t know if Jean Claude van Damme was involved in anyway in this deal since his move from likely terminally ill MediaTile to Panasonic but (yes we will get to the point in a minute) it seems that Panasonic selected SureVue for a nice little install just completed in Paris for global retailer Uniqlo.
We quite liked reading through the press release, someone literary was surely having fun as it started “A classy gala party marked the opening of Uniqlo’s European flagship store in the trendy Opera District of Paris, on Rue Scribe only steps away from the famed Paris Opera House, Palais Garnier” !!!
Uniqlo is of course Japan’s leading clothing retail chain with more than 800 stores currently open worldwide. This multi-level 23,000 square feet flagship store in Paris is well worth a visit and features innovative digital signage as an integral element of its merchandising strategy.
There are wrap-around LED panels and 53 x Panasonic plasma displays are integrated into the interior design.
Toru Tsubosaki – Business Development Manager told us “For us SureVue completed a very strong digital signage offering for Uniqlo, especially with the need for a focus on design and given the tough, continuous operating conditions within Uniqlo’s flagship store. Added to that we need a player that could deliver strong video performance and high reliability while operating continuously in harsh environments, MediaVue gave us all of this within a compact sized unit.”
