Exchange Rate display boards are used around the world in thousands of banks, bureau du change, currency dealers and travel outlets. The types of technology on offer can vary widely but can basically be categorized in to two groups namely LED displays and TV style LCD screens.
LED foreign exchange rate boards come in numerous formats for example 6 rows x 1 column right up to 24 rows x 4 columns. The currencies and flags are printed on magnetic strips for easy change. Some suppliers will generate designs incorporating bank logos and corporate color schemes. Some exchange rate boards feature adjustable brightness with anti-reflective acrylic fascias so as to be clearly visible in all retail environments. Many have time and date display built in as standard. In addition some incorporate a LED scrolling moving message sign on the exchange rate board to enable display of additional information and advertising. Certain manufacturers offer auto timer on/off and password protection. The boards can be wall mounted, suspended or supplied with stands for free standing.
Programming of the currency rates can be via infra red keypad or computer software. The customer can decide if they want to give local branch control or manage the data centrally from head office.
LCD foreign exchange rates boards can display exchange rates, bank interest rates and other corporate information and content in more flexible design layouts. Specialist digital signage companies can offer commercial grade LCD screens in all sizes for example 19 inch, 32 inch, 40 or even 55 inch. The system includes a digital sign player that allows the customer to divide the screen into several zones. Each zone can play different media such as video, scrolling text, charts and graphics. Programming of data can be from a local PC. The most advanced technology today allows control from a web browser – so you can control a screen from anywhere in the world via the internet. In fact multiple screens in multiple locations can all be managed from a single PC.
Some suppliers offer internet on-line sale of standard models only – whilst others offer full consultancy, design, and after sales support.
