Menu-Cast Innovation

NCS Lihir has recently started using a new way of communicating daily menus and messages to clients and staff in the dining rooms. The Menu-Cast system displays information via four state of the art LCD monitors located in the main dining room area.

It is a fully customised digital signage system that enables us to design and pre-program information that is of interest to our site including:

  • Menus and dining cycles
  • Health and safety updates and bulletins
  • Flight schedules
  • Site alerts and warnings
  • News updates

Catering Manager Alan Bloxwich said “Menu-Cast is proving to be a fantastic tool for us to display not only our menus but information and news to our clients and staff. It is easily updated and very eye catching.” “Safety messages are especially effective when displayed this way. For example we used Menu-Cast to keep residents updated during the tsunami warning after the earthquake and tsunami in Japan, when all the camp residents in the low lying areas were evacuated to the Main mess area until the warning was lifted.” he said.

Menu-Cast has the capability of also playing video and sound, and can be extended to multiple locations across the site. In use, since March, the reaction from our customers has been positive!
