AZA Partners with Videotel Digital to Launch Videotel Digital Association Partner Program

Videotel Digital today announced that the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) is the debut partner for their 2021 Association Partner Program.

Videotel Digital’s Association Partnership Program commits a percentage of media player sales to benefit the AZA’s work and all of its conservation efforts. AZA members interested in making such purchases can use a dedicated page of the Videotel Digital website.

“Videotel Digital does a significant amount of business with zoos and aquariums,” said Videotel executive VP of marketing and sales Lisa Schneider.

“After what has been a very rough year for all of us, Videotel Digital’s Partnership Program is a way for us to give something back and help strengthen the mission of our not-for-profit partners,” she said.

Videotel Digital’s industrial-grade media players come equipped with free software with no license, subscription, renewal or upgrade fees.

They are popular with zoos and aquariums because they can be deployed with out-of-the box installation and are engineered to run continually on a 24/7 basis for years, minimizing administrative oversight.

Why Videotel Partnered with Association of Zoos and Aquariums

To keep their visitors safe, zoos and aquariums are looking for solutions that allow them to continue to engage visitors with interactive exhibits without having to touch anything. Videotel Digital’s sensor-driven, interactive, touch-less peripherals are a great way to make interactive exhibits touchless.

Videotel Digital’s VP90XD media player also has the capability of hands-free screen control, which transfers full navigation control of the screen to a smartphone after taking a picture of a QR code shown on the display.

“We are excited to be partnering with Videotel Digital to offer AZA members a new and innovative solution for interacting with their visitors in this new environment,” said Dan Ashe, president and CEO of AZA.

“Touchless screens and ‘wave to activate’ technology are advances AZA members can use for ticketing, educational content, and directions while keeping everyone safe,” he said. “It will be exciting to watch what we can do together.”

Videotel Digital will also supply AZA members with free technical and service support if needed.
