RDI get set for Essential Install Live!

The Registered Digital Institute is delighted to be the official sponsor of this October’s Essential Install Live! Show. Our new partnership with Essential Install has given us the opportunity to take part in our first tradeshow, since the development and evolution of the RDI. Two years ago, we made the decision to diversify into different skills sectors, with the express aim of representing and up skilling our current RDI membership base, who have traditionally operated solely within the satellite and aerial industry. In this Digital Age, the concept of the Connected Home is such that eventually each and every piece of electronic equipment will be able to communicate with each other within the home and possibly even with other equipment outside of the home, via the internet. So within the traditional signal reception and consumer electronic servicing industry we have to ask the question; “Why is this important for us?” the simple answer is; because the Connected Home is the next stage in the evolution of the industry. Our industry has seen an incredible number of changes, all of which has meant development and change for individuals and organisations.  We have seen successful organisations develop into a “one stop shop” for ‘Connected Home’ installations, who can create a ‘Connected Home’ for a client from the bottom up, starting with a down lead from an aerial or dish and also include data cabling, wireless hubs, AV equipment, home automation equipment and security systems; for a single home or for communal or commercial clients.  We know that the automation and custom Install markets are vital to the evolution of our industry and through supporting Essential Install Live! we hope to be able to introduce RDI members and non-members alike to new B2B opportunities. Tradesmen attending the show will be introduced to some of the industry’s most respected manufacturers, wholesalers and distributors, they will be able to see the most up to date and cutting edge products and equipment and be kept up to date with industry developments and future plans. Through sponsorship of the show the RDI aim to facilitate cross sector engagement, which will allow us to introduce the new ‘Smart’ world of home technology. Over the next couple of months we will be contacting our technical database with regular updates on the show and how they can get involved. There are still opportunities available for companies wishing to exhibit and it is free for any RDI member and non-member to attend the show on the day. All Things Media MD David Kitchener says: “We are delighted to have the considerable resources, contacts, membership and knowhow of the RDI being bought to bear on our aim to make this year the best Essential Install Live! North ever. Our mission is to spread the word of custom install to as wide an audience as possible and having the RDI on-board with us this year will help us deliver on that pledge.” RDI Director Mike Davies said; “We are proud to be the 2014 Official Essential Install Live! North Show Sponsor. The concept of the ‘Connected Home’ is something that as a digital trade organisation we are extremely passionate about. Our future plans are very much focused on educating installation professionals and consumers about what products and services are available to them. We aim to do this through knowledge sharing, training and development and by sponsoring the UK’s biggest custom install trade show.” He added; “Our aim is to make Octobers Essential Live! North Show one of the biggest and best shows of 2014. We look forward to seeing you on the 15th of October” To register for show tickets visit www.essentialinstalllive.eu for companies wishing to exhibit please email info@rdi-online.co.uk for more information.

Successful launch of Friendly WiFi to benefit RDI members

To celebrate the launch of the new ‘Friendly WiFi’ accreditation scheme and to support its members by helping them capitalise on the increased web traffic, the RDI are pleased to announce that all basic advertising packages that currently sit on the Institute website will be replicated on to its consumer website www.getmedigital.com. The RDI are really proud of ‘Friendly WiFi’, the world’s first Public WiFi accreditation scheme, and wants all members to benefit from its continued growth and the recent increase in web traffic since the above launch. The ‘Friendly WiFi’ symbol carry’s the recognised and trusted digital tick trademark associated with approved aerial and satellite tradesmen and will soon be seen across the high street as a trusted symbol to identify whether a business’ public Wi-Fi service meets a minimum level of filtering to block out access to pornographic and child abuse websites. ‘Friendly WiFi’ has been designed to keep children and young people safe from viewing inappropriate material when logged into public Wi-Fi offered in cafes, shops, hotels and restaurants across the UK. Brands that have signed up to become ‘Friendly WiFi’ members include Starbucks, Samsung and Tesco, with Tesco being a ‘Friendly WiFi’ scheme stakeholder who are leading the initiative to show their support for the safeguarding of children online through the display of the ‘Friendly WiFi’ symbol in store. Tesco customers will see the ‘Friendly WiFi’ symbol displayed when they log-in to use the free public Wi-Fi, offered both in store and in Tesco coffee shops. By displaying this symbol, Tesco customers can be assured that the public Wi-Fi they are using has been verified and that any local Tesco sites offering public Wi-Fi has been certified as a ‘Friendly WiFi’ venue. RDI Director Mike Davies said; “We are really proud of the new ‘Friendly WiFi’ scheme and are happy that our members can benefit through this association, as part of our continued growth strategy. Our mission to provide increased value to our members and ensure we bring them closer to their Customers. Our website traffic continues to grow and has been further complimented thanks to the launch of our ‘Friendly WiFi’ scheme."He added; "The RDI has worked with the Government and industry to develop Friendly WiFi and we are looking forward to supporting a safer environment for children and young people as the level of internet browsing and availability of services continues to increase. This is great for the Institute, our members and for everyone involved with it.” Please note if you already have either a bronze, silver or gold advertising package your business will still appear as a priority listing viewed above basic packages in your area.
