Kayu Channel harnesses the power of Scala InfoChannel for in-house network

Kayu Channel harnesses the power of Scala InfoChannel for in-house network

Kayu becomes the first local popular eatery to hop onto the bandwagon of innovative media advertising harnessing the power of SCALA InfoChannel® for its very own customized in-house InfoChannel network; the Kayu Channel.

The clean and spacious restaurant occupies the space of two shop lots, providing ample room for a comfortable eating ambience, and likewise, plenty of strategic locations for the five plasma screens to display the Kayu Channel. At the entrance, a plasma faces the customers while another plasma is placed in the verandah. Two more plasmas are positioned in two corners of the restaurant while the fifth plasma is placed above the full screen glass panel in one of the two rooms.

The Kayu Channel provides patrons, customers and suppliers with updated information on the restaurant’s menu, latest food promotions, offers and news. In addition to that, the channel also serves as an electronic bulletin board for posting electronic classified ads or messages such as rooms for rent, or cars for sale, at a nominal fee. Customers are entertained by media rich content that is visually stimulating and informative.

Further revenue is generated through the sales of advertising space on the Kayu Channel. Several options of advertising space are made available to interested advertisers who can choose to display their own advertisement in “jpg” or “mpg2” format. Alternatively, the design and development of the advertisement is commissioned to Click Grafix. The sales of advertising space on the Kayu Channel is managed by CR Techmedia Sdn Bhd.

The content for the Kayu Channel is customized and developed by Click Grafix using Scala InfoChannel Designer 3. The content is then played back on the five plasma screens through one unit of InfoChannel Player placed at the restaurant. Content updates are currently uploaded manually from a notebook as Kayu works on plans to network its multiple outlets via broadband.
