Hospitality Technology Solutions

Situated close to the main entrance of the Bishop Grosseteste University campus, Refectory is open to students, staff and the general public, and offers a wide range of hot and cold food and beverage options throughout the day.

TVC were showcasing a digital menu board solution at the Restaurant and Bar Tech Live industry trade show in London. Bishop Grosseteste University were looking for a new menu board solution for their student refectory and the trade event provided the perfect platform for them to experience first-hand how our digital menu boards could work for them.

The Brief

Bishop Grosseteste University wanted a new menu solution that would greatly reduce the cost of printing out new menus and static menu boards every time a change is required.

Following on from our discussions at the trade show, it was clear that a digital menu board solution was ideal for their student refectory. It would offer a quicker and easier solution for adding new menu offerings, editing existing offers and changing prices.

The new solution would also need to provide a more manageable daily special offering and allow for time sensitive / flexible menus to be displayed throughout the day.

The Delivery

TVC specified a digital menu board solution that provides the University an ideal platform to create engaging and informative content. It enables them to be more creative when upselling to customers in-store by using imagery and special offers, turning their menus into an additional selling tool.

We supplied and installed 3 x 49” Mitchell & Brown 4K Ultra HD TVs, with a sleek minimalistic design and UHD picture quality , the screens provide the ideal clarity and resolution for text to be easily readable on screen.

The screens were securely wall mounted using B-Tech’s modular System X Rail brackets, ideal for menu board installations of any size, the brackets with the option for tilt adjustment up to +20° allow for enhanced overhead visibility.

Each digital menu display is connected to a MySign Digital Signage Player that can be connected to and controlled remotely via the cloud from anywhere in the world. A content management system (CMS) allows for the easy update of menus, prices and special offers quickly and efficiently.

Installed just before the first national lockdown in 2020, the digital menu board solution has been further utilised to communicate import safety messages and regulations to help support and protect staff, visitors, and customers in-store.
