Pearl Media integrates digital signage for Chelsea Market

Chelsea Market, a food hall, office building and television production facility in Manhattan is partnering with OOH advertising agency Pearl Media to update all its digital signage. Pearl Media provided seven 55-inch portrait LCD displays, two LCD video arrays and one 55-inch landscape display for the 40,000-square-foot market, according to a press release. “In looking at the digital plant we had at Chelsea Market, we realized the original displays were aging and wanted to upgrade to not only newer screens but screens we could have more remote access to,”  Daniel Odham, senior vice president, production at Pearl Media, said in the release. “We chose to replace all of our individual LCD assets with Samsung QM55R screens, because the MagicINFO and Tizen software have the ability to report back data about the hardware including the operating temperature, input, source, and provide an actual pixel for pixel screenshot of what’s playing,” The food hall’s displays deliver advertising messages for brands such as “The Witcher” show on Netflix. The company also selected an interactive 55-inch NEC V554-T touchscreen display with IR touch capabilit...

10 Beard Straighteners That Will Tame Your Wild Beard

For those who struggle with a curly, coarse or frizzy-looking beard, using a beard straightener is more effective than battling with oils and balms. They are also far more gentle on your skin than trying to blowdry your beard with a hairdryer. Even better, beard straighteners work as well on your hair as they do on your beard. They’re ideal if you need to look extra polished for a big meeting or date. You can also use one daily to keep your facial hair looking neat and tidy instead of woolly and wild. The Iston Beard Straightener will make even a coarse beard smooth and silky. It is designed to prevent damage to your facial hair by sealing the hair cuticle, which prevents split ends. Using ceramic technology, it heats up fast. Plus, the straightener also has ionic conditioning and an anti-static coating to make frizzy beard hair a thing of the past. The temperature is adjustable to suit all hair types, and the design is wider than most beard straighteners, which reduces the time it takes to smooth out your beard. For those who struggle with a straggly, frizzy beard, the Dioverde Beard Straightener’s anti-static coating makes it a great option. It straightens, smooths and detangl...

[Jan] is one of those people who’s always playing around with synthesizers, and in this day

[Jan] is one of those people who’s always playing around with synthesizers, and in this day and age, that means a lot of USB cables supplying power. If you want to make a synth setup portable, your best option is looking at USB powerbanks with their fancy lithium cells. These will work just fine, but remember: you can buy D cells just about anywhere, and they actually hold a ridiculous amount of energy. They’re cheap albeit one-use and disposable, so why not build a USB power bank out of a massive pair of batteries? The build started off, naturally, with a pair of Energizer D cells that hold 20,000mAh. A battery holder for these cells is cheap and easy to source, leaving the only other needed component a cheap 5V boost converter. This was simply hot glued to the back of the battery holder in parallel, a simple switch was added, and the entire thing was fitted in a neat little 3D printed case that looks like a car (motorcycle?) battery. Testing the with a phone revealed this thing will charge at 570mA from 3V, which is more than sufficient for [Jan]’s needs. Sure, using disposable batteries in 2018 is more than a little wasteful, but a project like this is meant to be a simple so...

How to choose the best wardrobe for your bedroom: Trending and walk-in ideas

Waredrobes are a strange stylistic animal. The largest piece of furniture aside from the bed, they have a very imposing physical and aesthetic presence. Follow kitchen trends? With slab faces, soft closing hinges or silent slides, micro-management and handle-free design — the monumental, built-in or free-standing wardrobe won’t be far behind your German anti-kitchen. Here are some key things to consider before you tailor in those valuable centimetres. Some larger ceiling or near to ceiling high free-standing wardrobes with kickboard bases (rather than telling legs) and widths of 1100mm plus — read as fitted. Every genre from French armoire classicism (Neptune’s Chichester range in dove-tailed tulip-wood is a good example) to Bauhaus block units in Zermatt, Mila, Christine, Emer and Jutzler; from €799 for a double (Harveys), can go it alone. Matching pieces in many flat pack ranges can be assembled tightly against shelving and dressers, anchored to the wall, but ultimately are mobile with just a few screws winkled out. Can you get an assembled wardrobe up those stairs? Explore well-priced buy/deliver/install services from outlets like the Loft Superstore on Cornmarket St in Cork....
