Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

Merry Christmas from the Team

2014 has been an interesting and busy year for Beatpixels. We've introduced new members for the team, new products and have delivered multiple high profile projects this year, latest of which, The London Palladium, was handed to the customer few weeks ago.

We've also been cooking up some great things for 2015, there are some big announcements to be made in the beginning of the year so keep watching this space.

The whole beatpixels team would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2015.
UpState Sensor

Independent monitoring service by Beatpixels

Following their second patent application in 4 months Beatpixels launches its ‘UpState’ service tomorrow at the NEC Showcase in Stratford.

UpState is an independent Proof of Operation monitoring service for flat panel or projection displays via a combination of a sensor and a microcontroller.  The unit can monitor and analyse what is actually on the display via the sensor and communication system rather than the traditional method of monitoring the output of a media player.  With the addition of a marker being applied to the content ‘UpState’  will  produce a number of accurate Proof of Playout reports based on what has been shown on the display.

‘Upstate’ is extremely versatile for a variety of monitoring applications and not just Digital screens.  It will monitor the performance of the illumination in backlit poster sites including large format displays.  With options of a PC hosted, Direct LAN connected or 3G cellular sensors, ‘UpState’ can be used in the majority of locations for OOH and DOOH displays.

Jason Robinson, Managing Director of Beatpixels comments; “When we were initially approached to develop a proof of operation service I asked my Technical Director Janne Taponen to concentrate on the ‘service’ part of the solution.  By doing so we have created  a sensor system from an engineers’ point of view.  However it’s what happens in the background that really makes ‘UpState’ an outstanding and crucially valuable development.  We can monitor and analyse a display every second if required or every 10 seconds to coincide with the average industry content segment.”

Beatpixels will offer the hardware to clients on free issue based on a minimum period monthly license fee.  We will give clients access to a number of defined reporting levels from each sensor produced on a clear and concise user interface.  The reports that ‘UpState’ creates offers clients the ability to give a true Proof of Operation or Proof of Playout to each of their customers.

‘UpState’ will be on display on the 14th and 15th May at the NEC Showcase, The Velodrome, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, Stratford London.

Red Cross Giveaway

Doing it differently this Christmas

Over the past few years e-Cards have become more and more popular, reducing paper waste therefore helping to protect the planet and usually raising money for your favourite charity.  However… here at Beatpixels my team thought that they could do something a little better than that.

When the team came to me with the idea of doing something a little different to the usual sending of Christmas cards and gifts to our clients, I just had to say a big YES! So what is that idea???

Further to the success of the #DooHGood appeal last month for the survivors of the Haiyan Typhoon disaster, the team has produced a series of free to air advertisements over the festive period. These are based on positive images captured by the Red Cross and follow their message of giving this Christmas.

Tens of thousands of people still need our help during this very difficult time for the survivors and we hope that these advertisements will help to KEEP THAT MESSAGE ALIVE!

The content is available at https://www.dropbox.com/sh/79uqaf45i9s1rwz/Tngi-Xul2l with campaigns for North America, Canada (English and French) and The Philippines in both landscape and portrait. These ads can be adapted in to any language for any territory, please contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by December 16th 2013 if you would like a version of this campaign for your own country. Remember we are doing this for free but need your help to spread the message.

The Beatpixels team wishes everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. 
Here’s to a prosperous and disaster free 2014!
