With time critical, Avek selected to install PeopleCount, including two 32” Google-certified, Android-powered and wi-fi connected D-Line displays, together with a Bosch FLEXIDOME IP Micro 3000i IH intelligent camera and the Philips Professional Display Solutions PeopleCount app.
Designed for 24/7 use, with full remote management control using the exclusive CMND platform, and capable of delivering complex content to capture any audience’s attention, the D-Line displays were strategically positioned in portrait mode at the entrance of ‘Apteekkari Sky’ rooftop terrace and inside the rooftop’s indoor bar area.
Connected to strategically-placed Bosch cameras, the number of people entering and exiting the terrace is calculated and displayed in real-time, with a traffic light system to indicate when it’s safe for people to enter, as and when capacity is reached and reduced.
In addition, the displays are used to communicate marketing messages and promotions to customers, whether waiting or not – ensuring investments are maximised and future-proofed. Avek’s Jari commented: “Before PeopleCount there was no other viable choice, which is a testament to Philips Professional Display Solutions’ foresight and ability to respond to market conditions. After testing PeopleCount, we had no hesitation in recommending it to our client.”
Arto Hujanen, restaurant manager, added: “The safety of our customers and staff is our number one priority and, with PeopleCount, we now have a solution that brings a new level of safety, as well as trust, as we continue to move forward in a post Covid-19 world.
