Over 100 units of iMira screen are on their way to South Africa as part of the Gearhouse Group's year-end technology upgrade. The new screens are scheduled to arrive ahead of the festive season events and New Year's functions.

Ultra slim, lightweight and easy-to-use; iMira digital posters are a convenient, cost effective and eye-catching way of displaying promotional content, way-finder information, boardroom schedules or client welcome information. The system operates on patented cable-less connection technology, which means that content can be uploaded to the screens via USB or wirelessly. Marketed as a "plug-and-play" broadcast and communication system; iMira is particularly easy to use – no complicated configuring, wiring or programming required. Just plug in your USB, the on-board 5GB media player extracts the information in minutes and you are good to go. There is also an HDMI input /output option to link to PC or to link up to 8 panels together as a "video wall" if required.

iMira LED screens are high resolution with a 2.5mm pixel pitch which provides a superb clarity, high contrast picture across a range of ambient light levels. This is a powerful medium through which to communicate your message and they deliver sufficient punch to stop passers-by in their tracks.

IMira will be available for rental around the country in mid-December through the Group's venue technical supplier, INHOUSE Venue Technical Management and live events service provider, Gearhouse South Africa. They will also be available for sale from the Group's distribution and sales company, System Solutions and are already being welcomed as a differentiator in a retail environment saturated with conventional information boards, point of sale displays, window dressing and promotional advertising. Low maintenance digital LED posters also provide a more environmentally-friendly alternative to print.

Each high-gloss panel stands at just over 2m high with a width of around 600mm and provides a vibrant kinetic display of your message - wherever, however and whenever you want it communicated. Content can be displayed across single or multiple panels in one location or simultaneously transmitted to various screens in different locations via a network management system. The panels can be suspended, wall mounted (portrait or landscape) or stand-alone using a built-in kick stand that tucks discretely away for easy storage.

The System Solution offers after sales support and service for iMira with swap out units, an in-stock spares inventory and a repair facility down to board level.

Experience the "stopping power" of iMira in venue receptions, conference boardrooms, hotel foyers, in shopping malls, at airports and at exhibitions in all the main centres, soon.
