AWM Smart Shelf Launches Next-Generation LED Shelf-Edge Displays

January 14, 2019

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 14, 2019--Aliso Viejo, Calif.-based newco AWM Smart Shelf announced the launch of their next generation of LED shelf edge displays at retail’s Big Show, NRF, at the Javits Center.

The latest launch, which is showcased in AWM Smart Shelf’s booth in the Innovation Lab (#7148), boasts a more than 2.5x increase in resolution over the previous model. The new slim form factor optimizes the use of shelf space with a reduced height of 1.5 inches, corresponding to that of a typical shelf.

“A key distinction of our solution is that it is seamless across the shelf width. This solves major problems of traditional digital tags by avoiding a cluttered look and eliminating labor required to reposition digital tags when moving products,” said Kevin Howard, CEO of AWM Smart Shelf. “Additionally, the screens are ruggedized to withstand a retail environment, and most importantly, they enable much more than just price tags when paired with our computer vision and artificial intelligence software and suite of programs.”

SOLUTION DETAILS

The AWM Smart Shelf solution is a comprehensive offering which provides other major features and benefits such as the ability to sell ad space, anonymous shopper data collection and reporting, planogram compliance, on-shelf inventory tracking and alerting, reduction of waste and carbon emissions, sales uplift, and operational efficiency gains.

The new generation of LED displays also comes in a 2-inch-high version. Both sizes are available in multiple IP (intrusion protection) ratings including IP68 to allow for use in wet or high humidity areas such as produce and coolers.

A comparison matrix which highlights the differences between LED and other technologies such as LCD, rear-projection, and e-ink is available for viewing at www.smartshelf.com/go/techcomparison.
