Next LED Video Screen Wows Fans at Knoxville Raceway

Wichita, KS (PRWEB) September 15, 2014

The biggest race weekend of the year was a week away at Knoxville Raceway and the Sprint Car Capital of the World was without a working video screen, a casualty of an on-track accident. Brian Stickel, Knoxville Raceway GM, turned to Impact Signs of Sedalia, MO to help find a solution. And like everything else around the countrys most iconic dirt track, it needed to be fast.

With industry lead times averaging eight weeks, Next LED did the impossible just eight days after finalizing plans for the new screen. And on July 31, the Raceway treated its 25,000 fans to nearly 600 square feet of Next LED digital display space. Our video board is directly related to overall fan experience, said Stickel.

We knew right where to turn, said David Goodson, Owner of Impact Signs. As far as we know, our partners at Next LED are the only ones that carry 16mm inventory suitable for this type of project and this timeline.

On the day the order was placed, Next LED shipped 35 individual cabinets to the racetrack. The team from Impact Signs removed the damaged display and prepped the existing structure for the new screen. The following day, each of the cabinets were hoisted into place and connected to create the seamless display.

The modular design of the Next LED product allows for a lot of flexibility in the installation, said Goodson. We were able to install the full screen in less than a day with a smaller crew and without the added cost of large equipment rental.

The state of the art screen stands about 17x 35 and packs 366 pixels into every square foot of display space. In all, the new display has more than 645,000 LEDs and a 60% larger canvas that allows for exceptional viewing from all areas of the grandstands.

As part of the full-service support of the installation, Next LED technicians worked with the Raceways electricians to reroute fiber optics and existing power to accommodate the new display. Additionally, Next LED was able to integrate existing audio and video equipment into the operation of the new screen. The control system setup also offers expanded features tailored for the new display such as race timing, driver data, live twitter feed displays and other content specific to the Raceway events.

We look forward to implementing new features in our race production to match the new boards capabilities, said Stickel. The guys on the infield already told me it was like they were lounging back, watching a giant HDTV.

Impact Signs is set to install a second Next LED screen in mid-September as part of an upgrade to the Winners Circle at Knoxville.

Britons taking unnecessary risks when travelling abroad, says IAM

(PRWEB UK) 21 July 2014

A survey by Britains leading road safety organisation has shown that more than a quarter of those taking a car or motorbike into Europe on holiday will travel without having their transportation checked or serviced in any way. 1

The IAM (Institute of Advanced Motorists) points out that as we reach the height of the holiday season, tens of thousands of people will be heading into mainland Europe to enjoy the delights of sun, scenery and a week or two away without realising that if their car or bike breaks down, they could be in line for an expensive repair bill, several days (or more) off the road and disruption of that hard-earned break.

The findings come from an online survey conducted by the IAM of people who have either taken a European driving or riding break in the last two years, or are considering doing so.

IAM chief executive Simon Best said: A breakdown is inconvenient at the best of times, but to have that occur while on holiday is even more upsetting. Even with comprehensive travel insurance, there will be huge disruption to your holiday if you have a breakdown and factoring in the extra expense of getting your car or bike back to the UK.

It is vital that your car or bike is in good condition to cope with the distances and demands of European driving. The roads will be unfamiliar so it is essential your brake pads, lights and tyre pressure levels are all in proper working order. Simply dont leave yourself open to the risk of an unnecessary breakdown or even an accident.

The IAM survey also found seventy-eight per cent of respondents feel that regulations about the equipment that you have to carry in Europe have become more complicated in recent years.

Respondents felt that unforeseen circumstances (33 per cent) and cost (17 per cent) are the biggest disadvantages when thinking about going on a driving or riding holiday.

Of those who have been on a riding or driving holiday, forty four per cent of those drove and twenty per cent rode or drove from the UK. Forty-one per cent prefer to drive their own car abroad. Thirty five per cent of respondents would like to go on holiday for two weeks.

Forty-three per cent of respondents favour France as a riding/driving holiday destination closely followed by Spain and Germany.

Top reasons for a driving holiday are increased experience and exposure to local people and customs at destination (44 per cent) and adventure (28 per cent).

Eight-five per cent of respondents always travel with full breakdown cover as well as full medical cover emphasising that respondents are taking necessary precautions for their health and safety abroad.

Other findings include:

Dealer e-Process Uses DataOnes Vehicle Data Solutions to Generate More Leads for Dealer Clients

Beverly, MA (PRWEB) September 10, 2014

DataOne Software, a division of Dominion Dealer Solutions and a leading provider of automotive data and software solutions, today released a case study detailing the advantages Dealer e-Process has realized by utilizing DataOnes automotive data solutions. The case study shows that DataOne Softwares VIN Decoding and Extended Vehicle Data have been essential tools in Dealer e-Process enhancement of its existing dealer products and its growth to more than 1,000 dealer clients.

Located in Downers Grove, Ill., Dealer e-Process is an automotive digital solutions provider that has been particularly successful in designing fully optimized and high-converting dealer websites. Dave Page, owner of Dealer e-Process, recognizes the importance of vehicle detail pages in a dealers website conversion rate, and uses DataOnes solutions to equip those pages with much more than basic VIN information.

DataOnes Extended Vehicle Data, tied to its VIN Decoder service, provides much more information than is available from the VIN number alone. That information includes important vehicle details such as safety equipment, MSRP, standard and optional installed equipment, as well as third-party crash test ratings and awards. All of these components help persuade potential buyers to convert on dealer websites and move closer to a purchase. DataOne provides us with additional data so we can create enhanced vehicle detail pages that generate 25 to 30 percent more form leads, said Page.

Dealer e-Process is also able to utilize the extended vehicle data for inventory-specific ads. Because we have all this detailed data from DataOne, we can write 10 specific ads per vehicle versus three ads based on generic data, said Page. Thats a huge advantage.

According to DataOne Software General Manager Jake Maki, Our vehicle identification solutions provide much more detail and vehicle-specific content than what is encoded in the VIN. Dealer eProcess is using this advantage to create an inventory listing that attracts and converts online vehicle shoppers at a significantly higher rate.
