Contact Group are able to design and supply all your digital signage requirements – from a few screens providing information such as way finding, daily schedules for room use, timetables, daily or weekly specials and emergency warnings. These messages can be routed to a particular area of a building or throughout the entire campus. Messages can be presented as a single image on a screen, a split screen or a montage of images across multiple screens. Our product offerings also can incorporate text scrolling message bars which can provide news and weather updates or special offerings for that day or hour.
Our systems can be incorporated onto your LAN or configured as standalone systems.
We are a single source supplier which means that we do not only offer digital signage players but also provide small and large commercial grade display screens and mounting hardware, signal distribution and infrastructure products. It is imperative that the correct screens are specified to suit the installation as a lot of domestic grade screens will not last long in a commercial situation.
We have multiple product offerings and can recommend the solution best suited to your requirements. We design, supply and install and program your system to provide you with a total turnkey solution. Solutions are designed to ensure ease of operation with on-site staff training available.

IP TV Distribution
Internet Protocol television (IPTV) is a system through which television services are delivered using the Internet protocol suite over a packet-switched network such as a LAN or the Internet.
From a user’s point of view, IPTV is very simple: instead of receiving TV programs as broadcast signals that enter your home from a rooftop antenna, satellite dish, or fiber-optic cable, you get them streamed (downloaded and played almost simultaneously) through your Internet connection.
Contact specialise in the distribution of IPTV into large networks such as hospitals, aged care, education departments and hotels, just to name a few.
