Vision Media Group’s Iconic Pod

Adrian J Cotterill, Editor-in-Chief


We have been given a sneak preview of Vision Media Group (formerly ScreenFX)’s Iconic Pod.

It’s for use indoors and is effectively a doubled sided 65″ Samsung screen in portrait mode (with all the ‘gubbins’ that allows it to work effectively in portrait mode) and has a playout engine in the base.

We have seen indoor units from the likes of Esprit Digital (and Remote Media has one now we believe) before – two differences here; the first is that this Pod features a touch screen information panel that can collate data and provide mapping guides to consumers AND VMG did all the design / collation / outsourcing work themselves and seem to have brought the unit in for a very, very reasonable price (by so doing).

Deployment will start shortly in VMG’s malls, replacing many of their existing Pods.

We have also seen a new style pod which we are told is an interim pilot device (not for general rollout) in their Fareham Shopping Centre.

    This setup looks suspiciously like the iPhone kiosk you see at each of the 1800 AT&T Mobility stores.
