UpState Sensor

UpState is here!

Following their second patent application in 4 months Beatpixels launched its ‘UpState’ service 14.5.2014 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.
