Design Challenge: Customer needed a way to provide real-time demonstrations of their innovative software to Booth visitors in a wireless network environment. The demo area needed to accommodate heavy traffic and support 12 demo stations that could be easily broken down each evening to protect its expensive equipment. Each demo station visitor needed room to interact, face-to-face, with an On-site Xtime presenter. The challenge was to mount, tether and provide power and network connectivity to each of the 12 tablet devices in a demo configuration that meet all these needs.
Design Solution: Absolute Exhibits suggested that Xtime design two separate demo counters for its booth. These identical counters or “demo bars” were placed at opposite corners of the Booth to allow sufficient space to handle the anticipated heavy Traffic Flow and each demo bar was outfitted for 6 Tablet stations. Research uncovered a supplier of 8” pedestal devices commonly used to display electronics in retail stores. Each pedestal features a coiled tether to attach the Tablet for security and each pedestal was attached to a customized display counter custom made by Absolute Exhibits carpenters. The two display counters featured a hidden cavity to house power outlets for each Tablet device. The Tablets could be easily and safely stored overnight in these locked cavities or the Tablets could be separated from the pedestals with a special tool and relocated overnight. This hidden cavity also allowed Xtime to display collateral and signage on a clean, distraction free counter top, dramatically improving its product presentation. The solution was a huge success with Booth visitors and the Xtime sales team. Each user found the mounted Tablets easy to use, the demo stations easy to navigate and the Traffic Flow well managed.
