The Avnet Display Solutions Team was proud to showcase the Peerless-AV® Xtreme™ Outdoor Display at CDW’s Café Day in August; these units were powered by BrightSign.

In a nutshell, the Peerless-AV display was powered by a BrightSign media player and showcased original Avnet content. This particular solution is key in the retail and quick serve industry, and appeals to businesses within the fast and casual retail space, bars, restaurants, and even convention centers.

The unit showcased at CDW was ruggedized to accommodate outdoor inclement weather, including high and low temperature extremes. When configured to be web-driven, the Peerless-AV Xtreme™ Outdoor Display is an IoT device. The display can easily be utilized as an interactive solution as well. The size and scope of deployment for this type of solution can be very lucrative.  Businesses like popular quick serve restaurants (QSRs) would typically install these displays across franchises with the possibility of 10,000 units and beyond.
