Maevex H.264 Encoders and Decoders Let Clear Channel Norway Remotely Control Metro Station Signage With Minimal Downtime and Maintenance
MONTREAL — 29 October 2015 — Matrox® Graphics Inc. today announced that Clear Channel Norway has installed Matrox Maevex™ H.264 encoders and decoders within three stations of the Oslo metro system to deliver advertising content on 176 digital screens. The first choice for Clear Channel, Maevex encoders and decoders deliver Full HD (1080p60) video & audio over standard IP networks.
With one hundred and seventy-six 65-inch screens across three metro stations, Clear Channel Norway was tasked with providing advertising to 80 million annual commuters in Oslo. After initially installing local media players in neighboring machine rooms with HDMI extenders, Clear Channel discovered regular power shutdowns would leave the screens blank even after connections had been re-established, leading to losses in ad revenue.
