Digital Signage FAIL: Hide those cables
It seems like there’s quite a bit of interest in the Digital Signage FAIL section and we are glad people like reading this educational information. So, for our next FAIL image, have a look at the below picture. The power and video cables are just hanging from the screen to a power point located near the bottom of the wall. The owner tried to cleverly use the vase with flowers to hide the cables and the power point – nice try!
The power cables and the video cable are just hanging from the screen to the power and video outlet
Still has the Energy rating sticker which indicates to me that it’s not a commercial grade screen
Install conduit so that the cables can be neatly routed to the outlets
Relocate the power point to the back of the screen
Before looking for a location to install the screen and bracket, make sure there is a power point
If you have seen or would like to share a FAIL photo with the rest of the digital signage community please send it to info @ digitalsignageblog.com
Please also include the FAIL FEATURES and SUGGESTIONS/RECOMMENDATIONS
NOTE: We will not be naming any companies/businesses or the location of where the photo’s were taken but we just want to highlight what went wrong, possible ways to remedy the problem and how to possibly avoid the same issue.
