Digital window displays are set to become an increasingly popular feature of tourism marketing in the future. With more people searching for travel information online, having a strong and engaging online presence is vital.
In short, a digital window is a valuable tool for increasing the visibility of your tourist information centre in the digital age. From optimising your website for search engines to creating engaging and relevant content,
you’ll be able to draw more tourists to your centre, show them quality content, and most importantly, analyse all the data you collect to gain insights about what mattered most once they leave the destination.
Before you turn your attention to the installation, you’ll first have to look at the window you want to use for the interactive window display and take photos of both the inside and outside. You’ll also have to:
1. Measure the width and height of the glass to determine the size and position of the monitor.
2. Also measure heights and interior and exterior differences so that we can choose the right support for the monitor.
3. Make sure that the monitor is at the eye level of visitors using the display from outside the centre, and that there is approximately 1.50 metres between the monitor’s midpoint and the floor.
4. Finally, figure out the power and data supply and we’ll start designing the vinyl that covers the monitor frame with your logo.
It is installed on the back of the glass of the windows, that is, on the side of the glass facing inside. Installation does require certain conditions, however:
. The glass cannot have an air chamber, also called Climalit glass.
. . The glass can’t be thicker than 12/14 mm.
. The monitors installed can’t be plasma and have to be equipped with LED or LCD technology.
Keeping the window clean will be imperative when setting up your interactive window display, so make sure the window where the device is installed is spotless; don’t forget the other side!
You can use a glass cleaner or rubbing alcohol to give it a final clean. The next step is to mark the position of the display and the vinyl frame (using masking tape, for example) at the right level and height, particularly from the outside.
You should also keep in mind that if the window glass is hot from the sun, you will have to add a few drops of pH neutral soap to the distilled water or it will stick too quickly.
Other issues to keep in mind:
Don’t forget to check the temperature of the glass and the distilled water; too much of a contrast could break the glass. Use a spray bottle to apply a layer of water to the glass and then remove it with the scraper.
Reapply a layer of water on the glass and peel the vinyl from the its backing while spraying water on the adhesive side.
Then, place the vinyl on the glass using the marks made as a guide. Spray the vinyl again and use the scraper to apply light pressure from top to bottom. It’s imperative not to twist or damage the vinyl piece.
Finally, once the vinyl is in the right position, remove any extra water.
