MT.Vision - Digital Screens & Signage

  • Information: new products, special promotions, holidays, opening hours …
  • Advertising pages from suppliers: automatically delivered.
  • Product screen: directly linked to your product database. You select which products you want to show, and decide how and when. The selected products also receive automatic updates of availability, prices and images.
  • Presentations: with ready-made templates that you simply adjust to your needs. You choose which products to display and which information to share, and also determine the appropriate look and feel.
  • Ordering: let customers order on your screen, pay for their order digitally and pick it up at a special cash register for delivery.

Lochting has the ambition to be an open platform towards all software houses, but also towards the other builders of digital screens. It is fair to say that integration will happen first with Meditech and the software houses, then with the other screen builders.

Your presentations are automatically linked to the product database through the platform. The selected products receive automatic daily updates. You no longer need to manually adjust the price or change the image when there is a new package. Also if the product is out of stock, this is automatically processed in your presentations.

Via the Lochting platform you can add media (images and videos) which you can then incorporate into the presentations. We distinguish product walls and custom pages. In a presentation you can alternate product walls with custom pages, videos and images.

You can create a product setup via Presentations > Product walls > Create. You can create a product wall in three steps.

  • Step 1: enter the name, choose the language of the products and the orientation of the product wall. It is then possible to add the corresponding tags here.
  • Step 2: select the products that you want to add to the product wall.
  • Step 3: create your product wall with the selected products:
    • Create shelf in rack: Click in the rack to add a shelf. You can drag it up or down, placing all shelves in the desired position.
    • Place product in rack: You place a product in the rack by dragging it to it and releasing it on the shelf. This product is automatically repeated over the entire shelf. You can change the number of products displayed by dragging the selection frame around the products. In addition, you can also control the number of displayed products in “Settings”.
    • Settings: Through “Settings” you can adjust the general settings of the entire product setup. You can change the settings of one of the products via the settings icon above the product.
    • Preview: To preview the product setup, click the “Preview” button. This will hide all the settings fields. You can also use the “Start live preview” button to select a TV screen within your company. The product setup will then be played as an example.
